OVERVIEW

We are a public-private partnership whose purpose is to promote Chilean’s transformation towards sustainable development.

For more than 40 years we have tackled critical, complex problems by envisioning and implementing high-impact long—term solutions, not just quick wins.

We have been pioneer enabling and promoting different productive sectors, such as aquaculture, agribusiness, solar energy, and Latin America’s first venture capital funds.

While the problems and interventions we have worked on have focused on Chile’s needs, many other parts of the world confront challenges in those same topics: energy, water, natural resources, worker training, venture capital and the like.

We partner with 160 organizations from 35 countries, from the public and private world, to share expertise, scout solutions and tap into new markets.

We exist to innovate in high-impact solutions that drive Chile's transformation towards sustainable development.
