Entrepreneurship

An opportunity for entrepreneurship

We are convinced that when an entrepreneur moves forward, Chile moves forward and that is why we are passionate about helping  them boost their businesses, in order to multiply their impact on people and society. Through Impulso Chileno, we provide integral support, with financing and academic accompaniment for  entrepreneurs from all over the country who already have  formal businesses, with the objective of making their projects grow.

Impulso Chileno is a contest for entrepreneurs that opens its applications once a year to support entrepreneurs from all regions of the country who for various reasons, whether their lack of resources, information, time or geographical location, have not been able to promote their businesses.
