INVENTING THE FUTURE 2019
Since its inception, Fundación Chile has promoted the creation of innovative companies to boost the development of new and better markets in Chile. ChileGlobal Ventures was born for supporting world-class entrepreneurs working on innovative and disruptive solutions in impact industries from Chile to the world.
We seek to generate better and greater opportunities for all the actors in the venture capital industry, by investing in startups that develop impact innovations in sectors of high potential and interest to the country and Latin America.
We attract, support, select and accompany entrepreneurs with innovative and high-impact solutions to develop new businesses in relevant industries in Chile and the world, creating a world-class community around venture capital.
We want to contribute to the economic growth of Chile and Latin America to the competitiveness and diversification of the national economy through the different tools provided by the venture capital industry. This way we connect the supply, delivered by startups with impact solutions; with the demand, from investors and companies willing to bet on who’s building future of the country.

In addition, we seek and select the best enterprises from anywhere in the world to generate innovations of global impact from Chile. This way, they can take advantage of the smart capital from these contributors to accelerate their growth and become benchmarks of innovation in their respective markets, generating a virtuous circle that strengthens the national venture capital industry.

From the corporate area, we develop open innovation projects with companies and organisations, linking the ecosystem of entrepreneurship and innovation, the know-how of Fundación Chile and the productive sector to solve the key challenges of the industry.
We work with institutions in the identification and characterization of their challenges, looking for the best solutions offered by startups and suppliers in the market.
We design the insertion strategy and steering plan to subsequently implement the escalation within the organisation.
During the process we contribute to strengthen the companies’ innovation capabilities and to develop strategies for their sustainability.
We seek to involve companies in the task of turning Chile and Latin America into a pole of entrepreneurship and innovation, getting them to generate mutually beneficial long-term relationships with Chilean and foreign startups.
