Building A Startup Ecosystem from Zero

Four years ago we began with an idea and a vision – to transform Chile into the innovative and entrepreneurial hub of Latin America. No one associated Chile – long, narrow, towered over and sealed shut by the Andes mountains – with innovation and entrepreneurship. But we saw an opportunity to create something revolutionary. And so Start-Up Chile was born.
Leveraging the power of global entrepreneurs, and with support from the Chilean government, Start-Up Chile has literally knocked down barriers and has transformed Santiago into a vibrant and flourishing startup ecosystem. More than 13,000 startups have applied to Start-Up Chile and 900 have passed through the program. There have been highs and lows, chaos and brilliance, and we have learned A LOT. From a radical idea to a global community, we have gained invaluable experience and learning.
Start-Up Chile would be honored to tell its story and share its experience with the world.
