The “Startup Peru Plug” program will be promoted during the last day of the VI Forum of Entrepreneurship and Innovation of the Pacific Alliance, called LAB4 +, which ends today in the city of Medellin, Colombia.
The model “Startup Peru Blog” has the objective to increase the critical mass of foreign startups interested in developing and implementing their innovative projects in Peru to continue the dynamization of the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
Soledad Campos, the Commercial Economic Adviser from Peru in Colombia noted that this initiative will allow the generation of employment, sales and positive externalities such as the transfer of knowledge, development of the entrepreneurial culture and fertile links with international ecosystems, according to information from Andina News Agency.
Campos also said that the Commercial Office of Peru in Colombia will facilitate the integration of the entrepreneurial and innovative ecosystem of both countries.
“Through strategic spaces designed for participating companies, the Commercial Office of Peru in Colombia will support the strengthening of bilateral relations between both countries in order to increase the number of entrepreneurs interested in investing in new business models, startups, and Peruvian franchises”, she said.
The VI LAB4 + Forum is organized by the promotion agencies of the four countries of the Pacific Alliance (ProChile, ProColombia, ProMéxico, and PromPerú), with the support of the Government of Colombia, INNpulsa, the IDB, Grupo Antioquia Exporta Más and the Mayor’s Office of Medellín.
