Bringing Creativity and Innovation to Chile’s Universities

Juan Andrés Fontaine, Chilean Government

Chilean science professors are not used to thinking in terms of startups, says Juan Andr�s Fontaine, Chile’s Minister of Economy, Development and Tourism. However, through partnerships with Stanford University and other organizations, business development education is growing in Chile’s universities. Minister Fontaine expresses the desire for students to take risks and learn to solve problems using an entrepreneurial frame of mind.
