Given the market globalisation, the growing easiness to create tech companies, and the chance to position products from everywhere in the world, we have chosen Bariloche as our operating headquarter. We strongly believe that a world-class product can be made here. And that motivates us.
Bariloche is a small Argentinian city with a population of around 110.000 people. It hosts two big scientific poles: The Bariloche Atomic Center and INVAP. Both had served as multiple technological spin-offs sources. As our motivation, to produce a world-class product, the city held numerous scientific projects, and produces nuclear and space technology, to serve a worldwide market.
The entrepreneur community in Bariloche is promoted mainly by Punto Pyme, which supports innovative projects with high-growth potential. Recently they opened Fab Lab Bariloche, first workshop of digital manufacturing which offers a collaborative work space, with the aid of 3D printers. It usually hosts entrepreneurs gatherings, startups, students and educational institutions.
In Bariloche we have participated as speakers in an entrepreneurs workshop, and in other classes showing how we use Lean Canvas at eTips.
Osorno and Valdivia
Osorno and Valdivia, two Chilean cities, near Bariloche, also foresaw the impact that will have the creation of collaborative work spaces, and the fostering of dynamic startups networks.
We highlight the effort of Nube cowork, from where they provide a valuable space to the entrepreneurs community and venture funders. They actively participate with events like hackatons, mentorships, speakings and workshops.
In Osorno we have spoken in a conference about regional startups with global vision.
