Santiago, Startup Chile – day #1
This has been the day when being in Santiago met with being part of an international entrepreneurial program.
12K applicants, coming from 115 countries, tried to take part to the Startup Chile program since it has been founded.
Generation 10, our generation, counted alone 1600 application.
And the first thing Startup Chile’s crew told us has been:
“You have a huge responsibility for being here.
We look and stand for values like:
# Create extraordinary things
# Do it yourself
# Dare not to be squared
But especially: make it count.”
For the very first time in my life I’ve found myself listening to people who are developing a completely different format to create new entrepreneurial culture and real innovation.
An innovation based on exchanges and interactions, and not on competition.
An innovation made of people, aiming to lower defences and unite aims, for a purpose that goes beyond what individual businesses are trying to do.
An innovation that believes in unity in diversity, and in the impact that this can create – at any level. Entrepreneurial, cultural, social, human.
There’s so much to do.
Glad to be here.
