Start-Up Chile is the world’s first public business acceleration program created by the Chilean Government for high-potential entrepreneurs to bootstrap their startups using Chile as a platform to go global.
We have a portfolio of over 1,800 startups and 4,000 alumni. We offer from around 15K USD up to 80K USD in equity-free funding, a softlanding program (visa) and an acceleration support to chilean and foreign tech-based early-stage startups with access to a corporate, investors, mentors, alumni and global network.
We have three programs :
- The Seed program for tech-based startups with a functional product and early validation
- The S Factory program for tech-based startups led by female founders
- The Huella program for tech-based startups with an economic, social and/or environmental impact.
