Tarapaca Connection Route

We look for startups that boost the logistics of the Tarapacá Region in the Capricorn Bioceanic Corridor that connects Chile with Brazil

Challenge closed

Since 2009, the Collahuasi Foundation has constantly worked to improve the education of public schools in Tarapacá, supporting the sustainable growth of their communities. Recently, the Foundation has expanded its focus towards innovation and entrepreneurship, especially those with high social, economic, technological and environmental impact. Moreover, the Regional Corporation of Tarapacá's Development plays a key role in this regard and ensures the productive development of the region and the decentralization of its decisions. 


In this context, this challenge aims to find sustainable technologies and solutions that boost the attractiveness of the Tarapacá Region as part of the Capricorn Bioceanic Corridor, route that connects the Pacific with the Atlantic Ocean. It seeks to facilitate the international trade and connectivity between the Tarapacá and the mid-west of Brazil, in addition to contributing to the local startup ecosystem's growth and acceleration. 

Specifically, the Tarapacá Connection Route Challenge aims to identify solutions for the Capricorn Bioceanic Corridor that focus in promoting security and cargo tracking, integrated digital systems and sustainable transportation in its various stages, processes and points.
