GSER 2023 Now Available in Spanish
We are thrilled to announce that selected insights from the Global Startup Ecosystem Report 2023 (GSER 2023) are now available in Spanish, made possible through our partnership with Endeavor Chile. Underscoring a commitment to global collaboration and knowledge exchange within the vibrant landscape of entrepreneurship, this partnership provides Spanish-speaking audiences with an understanding of the dynamics, challenges, and opportunities that define the world of startups.
Kathleen Barclay, President of Endeavor Chile, emphasizes the pivotal role of startups and scaleups in transforming economies. “Our experience has shown us that when economies become more complex, it is the scaleups that move the needle, becoming the cornerstone of growth, dynamism and innovation, especially in emerging economies,” she says.

- Mexico City has held steady in the 41–50 range in the Emerging Ecosystem ranking, of which it is the highest-ranked ecosystem in the region. Car-trading platform Kavak produced Latin America’s biggest deal in the GSER 2023 timeframe, a September 2021 $700 million Series E round.
- Buenos Aires moved up to the 51–60 range in the Emerging Ecosystem ranking, buoyed by a 70% increase in Ecosystem Value and a 100% increase in the number of exits over $50 million, with highest-valued unicorn Nuvemshop valued at $3.1 billion.
- Bogotá has moved up to the 61–70 range in the Emerging Ecosystem ranking, partially due to a 37% increase in Ecosystem Value fueled by the consumer tech company Rappi, which is valued at $5.25 billion, as well as Proptech platform Habi, which became a unicorn in 2022.
