Chileans, Startup Chile entrepreneurs, Medko, and I, myself, have chosen a great time to be living in Santiago.
Motivated by President Piñera’s words, I feel like it is our duty as innovators to focus on fields that we are passionate about that can affect millions of people in a positive way. For us at Medko, it’s health.
Good news: Innovation knows no bounds. Bad News: Innovation has enemies within the culture, especially the fear of failure. Chile must continue maintaining, and growing, innovation leadership in Latin America. Time is our judge. - Chilean President Sebastián Piñera, at the LatAm Innovation Summit July 30, 2013
