Regarding the gender of the founders, 11% are women and 89% are men. Although female participation is much lower than male participation, Start-Up Chile is working to improve that percentage with The S Factory, a pre-accelerator program launched two months ago, helping female leaders transform their ideas into functional prototypes.

 

The companies selected for the 14th generation will start the program on 13th October 2015. All the founders must be in country during that week to begin the orientation process and start their experience as Start-Up Chile entrepreneurs.

 

As a requirement, entrepreneurs must remain in the country for at least 6 months (the duration of the program) and help spread the innovation spirit through participating in social impact activities, sharing their experiences with the chilean ecosystem.

 

The startups will also have the chance to apply to the new follow-on fund Start-Up Chile SCALE that offers CLP 60 million (approximately USD 100,000) to companies that have significant traction, are generating revenue and that need the extra capital to grow in Chile and expand to the rest of Latin America. Only companies that have first passed through the six-month program will be eligible to apply for this fund.
