What Alumni are Saying

“Before Nuestro Financial became part of the EC, we faced significant challenges accessing the right service providers, mentors, and partners to propel our growth and advance our mission. However, with the invaluable assistance of the EC & Project Fintech, doors have opened for us one after the next. It has been an incredible experience to be supported by a group as passionate about our goals as we are.¡Muchas gracias, EC!”
