Innovació is an online resource which seeks to promote a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship in Chile through journalistic and editorial activities. Every day it showcases the most relevant and up-to-the-minute news stories, perspectives, tools and information relating to innovation across Chile and around the world.

The goal of Innovació is to provide innovators and entrepreneurs with the resources they need to stimulate and develop their creative process and bring about change. In so doing, it creates an important space in the national innovation system for other stakeholders, including scientists, technological experts, academics, competent authorities, and anyone who feels that innovation and the knowledge economy are key to development now and in the future.

Innovació is an initiative of the Innovation Division, part of the Chilean Ministry of Economy. As a journalistic digital resource, it has full editorial autonomy. Visitors to the site are therefore guaranteed a media source that is governed by the principles of responsible, transparent, critical journalism committed to promoting a forward-looking debate on innovation and entrepreneurship.

The general and strategic direction of Innovació is managed by an Editorial Committee comprising people from the public and private sectors, academia and the media.

The Editorial Committee consists of the following members:

Juan Manuel Santa Cruz, Director of the Innovation Division of the Ministry of Economy and Chair of the Editorial Committee.

Gonzalo Herrera, CEO of Fondef

Iván Vera, CEO of INNSPIRAL (Innovation Club).

José Miguel Benavente, Business School at Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez.
