LAB4: Together We Stand
Lab4of the Pacific Alliance
On October 29th, the 2nd Entrepreneurial and Innovation Forum of the Pacific Alliance took place in Cali, Colombia. This was the first of a two-day meeting, in which entrepreneurs from the participant countries got together to share their experience and knowledge with the objective of encouraging others to start their own business.
The government entities who attended and leaded this event are ProChile, Proexport Colombia, ProMéxico and PromPerú, all united by the shared objective of strengthening the bonds between the countries they represent, encouraging innovation and the creation of new companies.
On top of the LAB4 event several transcendence topics were addressed through panels, workshops and conferences, for entrepreneurs and investors interested in the development of the four countries that form the bloc. Proof of that was the first entrepreneurial association of the alliance, which was created at this reunion’s last edition in Chile.
This event’s results are undeniable; seven of every ten medium or high tech products exported in Latin America come from the four countries of the Pacific Alliance.
To close this forum, which was supported by the Inter-American Development Bank (BID), the Development Bank of Latin America (CAF), iNNpulsa and the Cali’s Trade Chamber, a business macro-conference took place, in which delegates of the four countries agreed that this joint effort is the key to achieve the region’s full economic development.
