Education  Chile Project #24557

Train 1,250 Chilean students through innovation

by Fundacion Sonadores

Summary

This project will train vulnerable high school students transferring methodologies of entrepreneurship and innovation. To do this, the team will introduce them in creating business models, financing and programming mobile applications as a key resource of the current global economy. This is a good method for contributing to the decentralization, diversification and sophistication of the Chilean economy, since this program promotes the free initiative in economic matters and equality.

Challenge

In Chile only 8% of young people under 24 undertake in business, a figure that compares to about 60% of young Americans who do, according to the Association of Autonomous Workers. Thus, the country is not going to diversify and avoid its economic dependence of natural resources if we do not do anything to revert the current situation. This project will affect 1,250 students, 1,250 families, 5 communities along Chile, and 5,000 people in total, during 2017.

Solution

Digital Dreamers provides co-working shops and pitches, motivation by coaches of outstanding careers in the world of entrepreneurship, training in business models by professional specialists, digital tools training, expositions of scholars at the universities, visits in companies and governmental institutions (as Corfo, that is a national institution that promotes entrepreneurship through financing), and training in e-commerce strategies, strategic financing and export of services

Long-Term Impact

The project will train 1,250 students, affecting 1,250 families, 5 communities along Chile and approximately 5,000 people in total during 2017, allowing them to create innovative ventures, promoting the realization of equal opportunities, and contributing to decentralize and diversify the Chilean economy. Also, this project will be communicated and diffused throughout the entire country (17 million people) as well as in many countries of Latin America as an exercise of cultural change.
