Start-Up Chile is on the road in Texas looking for the best and brightest entrepreneurs in the world and if you think you’ve got what it takes to garner US$40k of equity-free seed capital from Start-Up Chile for your global startup, don’t miss this opportunity! Join two of the original participants, Paige and Brian, who now live in Austin to hear about their experiences, the program in general and any specific questions you might have about the current application process.
This meetup will feature general information about the program (which Vivek Wadhwa calls a “ grand innovation experiment ”) that has paved the way for a worldwide innovation revolution. We’ll explain in detail what it’s like to bootstrap from Chile and how you can become part of the initiative by applying right now, before the August 11th deadline.
We will hold the meeting at Tech Ranch Austin. Tech Ranch Austin accelerates the success of technology startups by providing the help they need, when they need it. We do this through a series of educational programs, peer communities, and mentoring all led by accomplished entrepreneurs. Tech Ranch Austin has a long history of working with entrepreneurs in Chile. Starting in 2003, they developed a support network of over a thousand entrepreneurs. Today, they partner on the Region Fertil project and are setting up a new chapter, Tech Ranch Antofagasta.
