Want to Move to Chile to Bootstrap Your Business? Top 10 Reasons Why It’s Awesome

Have the itch to travel and just don’t know where to go? Do you want to sit side-by-side with smart entrepreneurs from all over the world, in a gorgeous sunlit office with free coffee and pastries, while receiving $40K in equity-free funding and all sorts of great connections from the Chilean government?

Yeah, it sounds too good to be true.

But this is what I’m doing right now. My name is Leslie Forman, and I moved to Santiago, Chile in July as part of Start-Up Chile, a program of the Chilean government to attract world-class early-stage entrepreneurs to start their businesses in Chile. I work for a solar energy start-up, and the program is awesome.

Here are the top 10 reasons why moving to Chile is a great idea:

1. Start-Up ChileMovistar, and Urban Station have worked together to create a gorgeous office for us! Here is a whole series of fabulous photos, taken by Alar from Estonia.

2. So many smart people in the same room! This physical proximity leads to new ideas and opportunities.
