"There are many benefits to Silicon Valley companies doing business with established companies from Central and South America. In addition to lower operating costs, the workforce has dual language comprehension (Spanish & English), and having an outsourced company in your time zone is always beneficial, and something that overseas countries cannot provide their partners with," noted Kirk Laughlin, Managing Director and Founder, Nearshore Americas Media.
For two days, Latin American and Caribbean based technology companies will have the chance to interact with IT leaders, sourcing decision makers and startup founders from local companies. In addition to the unparalleled networking opportunities, attendees will learn how to tap new markets, open new business operations and understand what countries are best suited for relevant products and services.
