About us

We are a private non-profit corporation that promotes innovations that move the boundaries of possibility. Our partners are the State of Chile and BHP.

In FCh we generate international networks, delivering high impact solutions to address Chile’s challenges in Sustainability, development of Human Capital, Education, Aquaculture, Entrepreneurship, and Food.

In our trajectory we have grown into a “do tank”, being pioneers in enabling new sectors through a portfolio of demonstrative companies, programs that create capacities, and technological services. Some examples include the creation of the salmon farming industry in the 1980s, the setup of venture capital funds in Latin America in the 1990s, and the movement toward renewable energies in 2000. Along with these, there is the collaborative work with more of 160 organizations worldwide (companies, governments, and technological centers, among others) in 35 countries.
