The TIC Americas 2018 Finals is part of the Implementation Component "Entrepreneurship for Action" of the fifth edition of the Young Americas Forum (V Forum), an official activity of the VIII Summit of the Americas. The V Forum will take place in Lima, Peru, on April 11 and 12 of this year, bringing together the Finalists of TIC Americas 2018 and selected delegates within the Youth Participation Component.
During the V Forum, the Finalists will be able to expand their business network, have a space in the International Expo, participate in the plenary sessions and trainings, among other activities. This is possible thanks to the important support of the sponsors and strategic partners, that year after year, support the implementation and expansion of the program in the Hemisphere: The OAS, PepsiCo, cbc, Postobón, and the World Bank, through its Office for Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as the National Government of Peru, as the host country of the VIII Summit.
We want to thank again the young entrepreneurs who have been part of this edition of TIC Americas. To those who were not Finalists, we encourage you to continue with your initiatives, and we invite you to participate in the next edition of the program. Likewise, we greatly appreciate the international judges for their valuable support in selecting the Finalist teams, and the experts who presented during the YABT BootCamp training sessions.
