LATAM
  1. The underpaid and over-schooled phenomena. Whilst in countries like the US, having a higher education diploma can lead to a better job, in Latin America, it is not uncommon for you to get equal or sometimes even lower wages than jobs that don’t require a college degree, leaving many professionals with jobs at places such as call centers.
  2. Limited access to quality education. In many countries, educational government programs are underfunded and tend to lack resources, teachers, and equipment to really complete what is defined as “quality primary and secondary education”. Furthermore, elements like transportation and access to the internet also play a big role.

In the mean time, SuperCharger Ventures has identified a series of Latin American founders striving to capture the growing market opportunity that is edtech. These include;

Anabella Laya, founder at Acreditta 🇨🇴

Adriana Caballero, founder at Yeira E-Learning 🇲🇽

Carolina Arce, founder at uPlanner🇨🇱

Giovanna Carbajal Morris, founder at MAGIO🇵🇪

Monica Ramos, founder at MUSA🇵🇪
