Instead of hosting the weekly Meetup event at our Headquarters this Thursday, November 18th, the Start-Up Chile staff and participants will be attending the Global Entrepreneurship and Social Innovation Week being held in the Constitution Plaza, directly outside of the Moneda Palace.
The event, originally founded by the Kauffman Foundation, will be headed by speakers such as Salim Ismail, CEO of Singularity University, and Valeria Budinich, founder and chief entrepreneur of Ashoka’s Full Economic Citizenship. Taking place from 8:30am to 1:15pm, the agenda will include various workshops ranging from High Impact Entrepreneurship, to the role of the private sector in social Entrepreneurship, to Educational Entrepreneurship.
We will be celebrating this initiative alongside those who are most closely involved within the Chilean community such as Endeavor, the Foro Innovación, and the Centro de Innovacion of the highly successful Un Techo Para Chile NGO. And, in line with Start-Up Chile’s core goal, the events this week seek to further promote Chile as the innovation hub of South America while focusing on the most pertinent national and international issues facing innovation and entrepreneurship.
