Accelerator / Incubator



Start-Up Chile is a program created by the Chilean Government that seeks to attract early-phase, high-potential entrepreneurs to bootstrap their startups using Chile as a platform to go global. The program offers its participants a global network in order to achieve this.
During the six months period the participants must establish themselves in Chile, for which they receive a 1-year work visa and USD$35k. The objective, besides developing their startups, is to create and foster networks with the local entrepreneurship ecosystem.
The end goal of this program is to place Chile as the innovation and entrepreneurship hub of Latin America and it is believed that said goal can be achieved by connecting entrepreneurs and linking them together with dynamic and diverse networks.
The program, unique in the world, is the ideal opportunity for bootstrappers to receive funding without ceding equity while utilizing one of the strongest Latin American economies as their launching/development platform.
