And offices in Santiago will help us to further enhance the work of the institute, through access to networks that are only in Santiago, the possibility of delivering services in situ to entrepreneurs of the capital that were struggling to do so in Valparaiso and also to promote a culture of entrepreneurship and innovation among students, academics and investors of USM”,
