Latin America Techies Present Online Innovations at eMerge

MIAMI – Digital ways to deal with wedding presents, find doctors and do business in Latin America are some of the hi-tech ideas of the region’s entrepreneurs attending the eMerge Americas conference in Miami Beach, which winds up this Tuesday.

One of the main attractions of this technology conference at the Miami Beach Convention Center is the Startup Showcase, which brings together 110 companies from around the world to exhibit their latest technological breakthroughs.

The startups this year come from 15 countries, including several from Latin America, like the Mexican app Uniko, a smooth way to return unwanted wedding gifts in exchange for cash, co-founder Raul Gonzales told EFE.

Ecuador’s Andres Ortega presented OyeMarco! to make busy people’s lives that much easier with “a personal assistance service that does everything from planning events and filling drugstore prescriptions to grocery shopping. In other words, users can forget about all those time-consuming tasks that add nothing to their lives.”

Several years ago Brazil’s Raulo Ferraz was injured in an accident, which forced him to deal with the complicated insurance system in his country. “That’s why I started Hippo Drs, a platform that finds you the specialist you need without paying those exorbitant fees and in the least possible time,” he said.

Meanwhile, Guatemalans Marco Vinicio Rojas and Axel Mayorga offer their PideloRapido.com that makes it quick and easy to go shopping online in Central America.

All these entrepreneurs agree that the Startup Showcase, which will award $175,000 in cash prizes, is a great place to become known, make strategic alliances and contact potential investors.
