Miryam Lazarte

Miryam Lazarte is the founder of Global Startups Accelerator (former LatAm Startups), a pivotal Toronto accelerator that catapults startups from emerging markets to a global audience. With her at the helm, it has been selected as one of the organizations supporting Canada's Startup Visa program and has secured a commendable $3M in federal support.

Miryam is also a General Partner of GSA Ventures, a Venture Fund committed to technology entrepreneurs dedicated to strategically investing in immigrant entrepreneurs.

Since its inception in 2017, Global Startups has nurtured over 200 tech companies, providing a springboard to validate their ventures in North America. Under her guidance, these startups have made substantial headway into the Canadian ecosystem, boasting two unicorns in their portfolio.

Hailing from Colombia, Miryam's entrepreneurial spirit took root in her childhood. Today, she is driven by her fervour to fortify economic connections between Canada and the vast, yet underexplored, Latin American market of 800 million consumers.

Miryam's work in the Canadian technology field has been recognized. She was named one of the "10 Most Influential Hispanic-Canadians 2022" and won the "Newcomer Entrepreneur Of The Year 2019" award from Startup Canada.
