The Colombian startup was selected as the U.S. Expansion Prize Winner at the 2017 eMerge Americas conference

"The energy and passion of The Biz Nation, and their ongoing promotion of entrepreneurship, is contagious. We wanted to help bring that here to Miami and the U.S.,” said Rich de la Rosa, CFO/COO and co-founder of VIAGlobal.

VIAGlobal, the Miami and San Francisco-based program that helps international startups evaluate and execute against their U.S. market potential, has launched The Biz Nation LLC in Miami, Florida, on behalf of the Cartagena-based online learning platform, The Biz Nation. By commencing its U.S. operations in Miami, The Biz Nation now aims to move its existing international sales operation to the international business hub of South Florida, while continuing to grow its development and operations team in Colombia. This will also allow them to begin marketing their platform to the massive US-Hispanic market.

This summer, The Biz Nation competed against more than 120 startups at the 2017 eMerge Americas Startup Showcase, and was selected from a group of finalists from Asia, Europe, North America, Latin America and the Middle East for the VIAGlobal-sponsored U.S. Expansion Prize. They will receive 12-months of VIAGlobal’s Virtual Presence services, which provide a streamlined solution for companies looking to expedite a commercial presence in the U.S. without moving personnel immediately.

“Spend a few minutes with founders and sisters Daniela, Stephanie and Karen Carvajalino and you will understand why it was not a difficult decision to select them for this prize. Their energy and passion for not only their company, but also promoting entrepreneurship, is contagious, and we wanted to help bring that here to Miami and the U.S.,” said Rich de la Rosa, CFO/COO and co-founder of VIAGlobal. “We worked with the Biz Nation to gain a deep understanding of their current operations and growth plans to design an expansion solution that was right for them.”

With offices in Miami and San Francisco, VIAGlobal works with international startup accelerators, incubators and venture capital funds to find early stage technology companies and provide them with the support needed to expand beyond their home countries and into the U.S. market. Participating companies also have access to a suite of services across varying support functions that include incorporation, banking, marketing, accounting and tax services, vendor certification, sales management and regulatory compliance.

“We are very excited about this opportunity with VIAGlobal as our partner in the U.S.,” said Daniela Carvajalino, CEO and co-founder of The Biz Nation. “The timing is perfect for us. We were already thinking about expanding to the U.S. and now we are getting the expert advice and support we need to accomplish that.”
