About The Event
Join our host Alejandro and the Techstars alumni tech founder community at this exclusive conversation with our special guest Amir Hemmat, who has raised over $70M with Welcome Tech, a digital platform providing the tools and services immigrant communities need to thrive in a new country.
Amir Hemmat is the Co-Founder and CEO of Welcome Tech, the “digital Ellis Island” and future operating system for immigration. Welcome is a venture funded technology platform that is building innovative financial, educational and healthcare solutions for the immigrant community.
Welcome’s digital wallet technology and proprietary data ensures access to previously elusive opportunities to underserved communities. Welcome is currently focused on the U.S. Hispanic community, the largest immigrant group in the world, through its consumer platform SABEResPODER®. The platform reaches over 9 million immigrants a year across 50 US markets and connects these consumers to custom financial services.
To date, Welcome has raised $70 million from TTV Capital, Owl Ventures and SoftBank’s Opportunity Fund, with participation from Crosscut Ventures, Mubadala Capital, Next Play Capital and Owl Capital.
Our conversations take place over a Zoom call, not a webinar, so there is space to share experiences and ask for advice. The event will be carried out as a fireside chat for 30 minutes plus a 20 minute Q&A.
