Podcast - IICIE AIB Member Tadashi Takaoka at Startup Canada

“10 YEARS AGO, IF YOU WERE AN ENTREPRENEUR, PEOPLE WOULD REFER TO YOU AS ‘UNEMPLOYED’.” – TADASHI TAKAOKA, IICIE INTERNATIONAL ADVISORY BOARD MEMBER FROM CHILE, ON THE SHIFT IN PERCEPTION ON ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN CHILE. ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN CHILE HAS BOOMED IN THE PAST DECADE, THANKS TO CARFO, START-UP CHILE AND A PUBLICLY FUNDED INCUBATOR THAT INVITES STARTUPS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD. CHILE ALSO REPRESENTS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR CANADIAN ENTREPRENEURS. LATIN AMERICA REPRESENTS 10 PER CENT OF THE GLOBAL INTERNET-CONNECTED POPULATION. CHILE REPRESENTS FOUR PER CENT OF THAT GLOBAL POPULATION. IN THIS EPISODE OF STARTUP PODCAST, HOST RIVERS CORBETT INTERVIEWS TAKAOKA, WHO BRINGS HIS WIT AND HUMOR TO EXPLAIN WHY CHILE AND LATIN AMERICA CAN BE A GREAT LOCATION TO GROW.
