Get on the SUP Boat!


Start-Up Chile happily announces that its 5th round of applications is now open! But before you apply, you need to know exactly what are you getting yourself into, while we need to make sure the best entrepreneurial talent out there is applying to be a supper: that´s why we launch our application process with two weeks with tons of information. Meetups, FAQs, webinars: all the information you need to submit a great application is out there. Use it!

This time, though, we decided to make it different and to spice up our informational period a bit. This is why today we stand up and cheer for those getting on the Sup Boat, the Start-Up Chile boat that will travel around the globe letting the world know what is Start-Up Chile made of. Start-Up Chile´s staff, alumni and entrepreneurs will visit the most entrepreneurial cities in the world so all those who want some SUP juice can ask questions directly. For our 5th application round, we want the best of the best talent in the world, and this is why the SUP Boat will visit all those cities know for their creative, energized entrepreneurial mindsets.
