Sitting in the mining area of the Atacama Desert of north Chile, Antofagasta is a port city and regional capital known for its copper production. Located about 1,100km from Santiago, it has a population of about 402,669 people, so you will have plenty of potential friends to mingle with at a coworking venue. Previously the city was a part of Bolivia but it was transferred under the terms of the 1904 Treaty of Peace and Friendship. Ranked 5th on the Human Development Index with the highest GDP per capita of Chile, the last decade has seen steady growth in construction, hotel accommodations and retail, as well as population growth. The city is bathed in sunlight and has a strong maritime influence with a huge natural arch "Monumento Natural La Portada" where you can play with pelicans and occasionally seals and dolphins before you head off to get some work done in a coworking venue.
Antofagasta may not be a tech hub per se, but it does have its fair share of entrepreneurs hustling around the town. The Chile government has created some amazing opportunities for tech startups to launch and grow with one such inducement being the introduction of a new tech visa allowing entrepreneurs, tech gurus and investors to acquire a visa in only 15 days. The government has backed the "Start-Up Chile" program offering equity-free grants up to US$40,000 that is attracting techies and startups from all over the world with its mentoring workshops and access to investors plus one-year visas to entrepreneurs who wish to continue developing their startups in Chile. With this leading global accelerator program, it's creating the foundation for a growing culture of entrepreneurship.
Chile is ranked 5th in the world for tertiary enrolment and 14th for the number of firms created each year. It has some of the best universities in South America that is spawning a generation of tech savvy and hungry youth that are on the entrepreneurial ladder to success. Coworking venues have become the space where they flock to forming communities of innovative minds.
