InfoCasas collects all real estate information from agents and owners to help users find houses to buy and rent. It’s a great solution that makes the housing market a less daunting subject. Users can start their search by what they’re looking for; the tool can be used to rent, sell, buy, and find accommodation across the country. They can also refine it by the type of property they are looking for, city and neighborhood. This startup is now operating in Uruguay, Paraguay, Colombia, Perú and Bolivia.


This app allows users to pay bills directly from their devices. All users have to do is create an account with their banking information, and scan the barcode in their bills. The system uses digital banking security levels, and users can check the exact amount that will be taken from their bank accounts beforehand, unlike direct debit. In Uruguay, paying bills is particularly annoying because different bills are paid at different locations. With Paganza, Uruguayans have easy access to paying their bills, so they could finally stop worrying about when and where to pay them.
