Today, there are more than 1,5 million micro and small enterprises in Chile, that employ more than 80% of the total work force. The leaders of these businesses are low-income entrepreneurs with no networks and little management skills.
There is a great opportunity -through training and consulting services for vulnerable entrepreneurs- to increase the productivity of the country and to get closer to achieving the status of a developed country. Entrepreneurs have a big growth potential but today they are unattended, with no networks and without real and effective opportunities.
- Vulnerable Entrepreneurs from all over Chile.
- Young entrepeneuers (18 to 29 y/o) with an ongoing business or business idea.
- Companies that are looking to generate customer or supplier loyalty through training programs and companies looking for social responsibility activities.
- Governments or public institutions looking to boost entrepreneur ecosystems in their local communities.
Acción Emprendedora sustains each Entrepreneur Center through projects with private companies, alliances with the public sector and with the payments received from entrepreneurs for the services and activities offered in each center.
Acción Emprendedora has 7 Entrepreneur Centers in the north, center and south of Chile. Our Centers are located in Santiago, Valparaíso, Antofagasta, Concepción, Coronel, Santa Bárbara and Easter Island.
We work with more than 3.000 entrepreneurs each year. Of the entrepreneurs that participated in our programs, 62% increased their sales and 44% created one or more jobs.
