World Startup Wiki launches today

A year ago (March 2013) we announced Bowei Gai’s 29 country self-funded tour for his ‘World Startup Report’. We further supported his mission by hosting him in Chile and ultimately becoming World Startup Ambassadors reporting on insights and trends from Chile’s underground startup community.

Nearly one year to the date, we are proud to announce yet another great resource that was born from Bowei’s tour. From the team at World Startup Report comes World Startup Wiki – an interactive local guide to building a startup anywhere in the world.

World Startup Report: 16 Countries and Counting

Editors note: This guest post comes courtesy of Bowei Gai, founder of World Startup Report.
Bowei sold CardMunch to LinkedIn in 2011.
After releasing The China Startup Report and generating more than 125K views, he started a 9-month long trip in January 2013 to research the world’s startup ecosystems (across 29 countries and 36 cities).

He visited Chile between March 7th – 10th and I supported his work by setting up an agenda to connect the chilean community (founders and investors) with him.

If you’re planning a trip to explore Chile’s market and networks, make sure to:
1) download our new ‘Making it happen in Chile‘ market entry handbook series 
and
2) check in with AndesBeat.

A million thanks to the World Startup Report team, sponsors, and volunteers around the world for making this trip a reality. It’s been an amazing 6 months. Here’s a recap of what I’ve learned on the road. Continue reading

Chile is honored to be 1 of 29 host countries on Bowei Gai’s travels around the globe for his World Startup Report tour. A self-funded effort, he along with the support of fabulous people like you, will be working to create 29 startup ecosystem reports for each nation he visits. 

Accomplished young entrepreneur and founder of the World Startup Report Bowei Gai is set to land in Chile on March 6, 2013.
