Somos21 will launch an online platform and digital application to enable direct engagement, connection and collaboration between people and institutions across Australia and Latin America.

The platform will provide unrivalled visibility and access to skills, networks and opportunities across both regions. 

Tailored to address the diverse needs and characteristics of individuals and businesses at different stages of their development in (or engagement with) Australia and Latin America, the platform has specific functionality of relevance to global students, graduates, junior professionals, senior professionals, entrepreneurs, companies and institutions.

Leveraging technology developed for Europe’s leading business schools, the innovative platform is a powerful, intuitive, and invaluable tool for expanding knowledge, networks, experiences and opportunities across Australia and Latin America. As a multi-sided platform, the value to all users will increase exponentially over time as more profiles join the platform.
