In 2015, NuMundo was accepted into Startup Chile, a startup accelerator program based in Santiago, Chile. We were given a grant from the Chilean government for $30,000, which enabled us to rebuild the platform using more modern web technologies and create a completely custom interface. During this time, we were fortunate to meet Lukas Sommer, who became our tech lead and technical co-founder. The NuMundo team spent 6 months in Chile, working with local communities, impact centers and projects. We launched a beta version of our platform in June 2015.
