Start-Up Chile launched its 7th application process in the midst of SXSW!

Folks in France and Estonia got really excited about Start-Up Chile visiting them, and we hope that means we´ll see many applications coming from there.
Diario Estrategia is writing about Aumentality, a chilean supper startup that could totaly revolutionize the way we experience marketing.

Joldit keeps looking hot to the press! They have been pretty much everywhere in the last two weeks and the journos won´t get tired of them: their service to help people find a parking spot that they can rent is clearly solving a problem, so the noise is inevitable.
