Our Programs


We are a team that seeks to foster a collaborative business culture to promote sustainable business development. Our role is to articulate different talents coming from universities, research centers, entrepreneurs, as well as stakeholders from the public and private world, to jointly address industry’s and the country’s main challenges.


We connect people, bring worlds together, and build a common future through collaborative spaces among companies. Our role is to articulate existing development capacities in Chile and the world to serve our country’s main challenges.


We seek opportunities and transform them into tangible projects. This requires the rethinking of processes, the development of new capabilities, the search for new experiences, and the linking of different talents, to enable us to learn and imagine new ways of working together, to tackle the challenges of circular economy and climate change.


Innovation is not limited to the creation of new technologies, but rather to the development of a mindset that allows us to better adapt to the current times, becoming aware of the need for a new collaborative model among companies, that is also resilient and sustainable.

A new model for a new Chile

Chile has begun a new stage in its development. A stage in which the country is aware of the need for a new model for resilient, sustainable and collaborative growth. It is here that addressing the challenges related to climate change and circular economy becomes decisive for our country’s future. Neither government, companies, nor civil society will be able to find sustainable solutions on their own. We hope to contribute solutions to these challenges, which we have placed at the core of our sustainable business development strategy.

  • Alan Garcia, Executive Director


Our work process begins with a shared problem. At SOFOFA Hub we prioritize common challenges, after which we summon companies that wish to jointly address them, and subsequently set up a new project and initiative. With the support of the Inter-American Development Bank, we have designed a model that creates a general framework for prioritizing projects in accordance with economic, environmental, and social variables.


Willingness to collaborate: refers to the industry’s willingness to finance and participate in the project.


Technological Maturity: Assessment of its maturity, from research and development, to production and marketing


Impact Potential: Defines the project’s scope of impact and replicability


Adoption Feasibility: It marks the feasibility of conducting the project, in accordance with its implementation difficulty


Economic opportunity

Our partners

Our partners have been pioneers in understanding the collaboration that is required by today’s innovation. Transitioning toward collaborative models requires an internal cultural change, in addition to the rethinking of processes. Collaborative projects have a greater long-term impact, because they provide an opportunity to generate economies of scale and articulate new processes in a holistic manner, as well as due to the commitment generated during the process and its implementation.
