Building a startup doesn't have to be boring. We want you to enjoy your journey.

Connect with like-minded founders

We're bringing the top young founders to the region together to build the next unicorns.

Is Makers an accelerator?

No, we are not an accelerator. We don't take any equity of your startup, but we also don't invest in your startup.

Do you invest in any startup?

No, Makers doesn't have any fund to invest in startups. Andrés Bilbao has invested in some startups, but this is not a common case.

What do you expect from me?

We know you are busy building your business, but we expect that you also help other founders whenever is possible for you.

We can lie, our fellow don't.

Our community speak for ourselves.

"With Makers, I’ve been able to start my journey as an entrepreneur and founder. Not only have I had the chance to acquire skills and learn about the startup ecosystem in Latam from top mentors, founders and advisors, I also feel part of a community of young people who, like me, want to build the next generation of top startups and unicorns."

Valentina Ponce de León, Business Fellow

"Makers Fellowship has been the perfect chance to be around of extraordinary people who want to enhance diverse industries in Latam through technology, networking, hard-smart work and passion.
[...] it is fantastic to have the opportunity to get in touch easily with them through the fellowship when you need the help of someone with a great experience."

Alejandra Pulido, Business Fellow

"Makers is definitely a life-changing opportunity. This community has opened the doors to a world that I thought didn’t exist, it has contributed exponentially to my professional and personal growth, thanks to all the talks, training, and job opportunities they have given me. Being part of this community has allowed me to connect with impressive people with a growth mindset that is contagious."

Juan Sebastián Valasquez, Coding Fellow

"Makers made me grow up professionally years in just a few months. Having weekly meetings with top-tier leaders of LatAm’s startup market such as Andres Bilbao and Bianca Sassoon and listening to their feedback was a rocket fuel for growth. As a business fellow, I joined an a16z backed high performing team with zero bullshit and extremely ambitious goals.

Victor Assis, Coding Fellow

"Building new things from scratch is difficult. No to mention having an impact that could last generations. Makers gives you a boost up with an ambitious community of peers that are building meaningful things and mentors that have  done it already."

Juan Pablo Garzón, Founder Fellow

"Starting a company is not only harder than a usual job, it's lonelier too (especially as a young, first-time founder!). Makers is the community I wished for all this time without knowing. Although the mentoring and the opportunities I've had so far are top-notch, I have to admit I'm especially grateful for something much simpler: the peers I've met.

Lautaro Paskevicius, Founder Fellow

Our mission is to incubate the future leaders of the next 1000 startups in Latin America with a completely free program.
