Netflix was the first to arrive in Uruguay in 2011, followed by Amazon Prime in 2016 and Apple TV+ in 2017. In large part, the rapid growth of the audiovisual sector and eCommerce in Uruguay during Covid19 reflects a years-long public policy committed to the growth of Uruguayan hi-skilled exports to the U.S.

September 22, 2023

Salesforce is buying, which builds low-code, AI-powered e-commerce customer service agents.  You might have thought Salesforce could already do that, but presumably Airkit does it better.  It doesn’t hurt that the company founders sold a previous business to Salesforce, the company was partly funded by Salesforce Ventures, and the product is already listed on AppExchange.  Price was not announced.
