Peru has 1 city in the top 1000 and is one of South America’s best countries for setting up a startup.
Since 2023, Peru lost 6 spots in the Global Startup Ecosystem Index, having now positioned itself as 69th worldwide.
Although Peru is an early stage startup ecosystem, the founders of Peruvian startups are proudly creating companies with regional scope. Local startup potential is evidenced by the investments received from top accelerators, including Y Combinator. Additionally, international startups can use Peru, which offers affordable operating costs, as a foothold into the South American market. For example, Ecuador’s paytech unicorn Kushki is now in Peru. The ease of doing business in Peru is improving, and so are the favorable laws for investing in the country. While there are still no startup visas, the country is welcoming foreign investors with the Investor Visa.
