SUP + Chilean Social Entrepreneurs Unite!

Social entrepreneurship is on the rise. For the first time in Forbes’ 94-year history, they’ve assembled the Impact 30: a list of the world’s leading social entrepreneurs. A “social entrepreneur” is a person who uses business to solve social issues. The local Chilean social entrepreneurship community is forming rapidly and this meet-up is part of that emerging formation.

This meet-up will be a chance to learn about social ventures in Chile, how these respective projects were born, the importance of social entrepreneurship at large, and the state of the sector in Chile. We’re working with Emprendimiento Social Chile to bring the local and Start-Up Chile worlds of social innovation together for a fun night. Note: The first three speakers will be in Spanish *with slides in English* and the SUP speakers and Q&A will be in English. 

WHERE: Casa Lastarria, 2nd Floor, Lastarria 70 (Metro Universidad Católica)

WHAT: Opening the evening with 5 speakers (45 minutes total), followed by Q&A (30 minutes) and drinks and live music to follow.

We have the following line-up with Ana Rivera, Emprendimiento Social Chile @esochileas moderator:

Juan Pablo Larenas, Sistema B [B Corporation @SistemaB] – 10 mins

María José Montero, Fondo de Inversión Social [Social Investment Fund] –10 mins
Gonzalo Muñoz, TriCiclos [@tri_ciclos] –

Marisol García, Crowdplaces [Start-Up Chile @crowdplaces] ­– 5 mins

All followed by some original live music from Dean Fischer, Maptia [Start-Up Chile @maptia] to keep the mood alive.

    The presentations were excellent. It was also great to see so many people there! The only problem was that there wasn't enough space for us all haha BUT that is a good problem to have!

    Thanks for your work with the event and I look forward to attending others in the future!

    Lo que hace interesante esta clase de encuentros, es justamente la calidad de personas que atienden y en ese sentido estuvo espectacular. Estoy esperando el próximo.

    Además, siempre es bueno (si bien no estoy en contra que los meetups sean en inglés) poder asistir a charlas en el propio idioma.
