This is just one of the aspects that makes its ecosystem a world benchmark in entrepreneurship. and innovation from which Colombia has much to learn. For this reason, having an iNNpulsa office in this environment will allow us, both entrepreneurs and other actors in the Colombian ecosystem, to have that closeness necessary to connect and strengthen ourselves.”
