Ematris is a consulting company based in Chile dedicated to boosting innovators and social, cultural and business entrepreneurs, through consulting, coaching and fundraising from private and public sources. Each part of the consulting process is designed to create learning experiences that enable entrepreneurs to strengthen their businesses. Ematris also employs young entrepreneurs in part-time jobs, so they can work with other projects, build networks, and create experiences of success in an environment of continuous development that they can apply in their own businesses. In Chile, 53% of microenterprises do not pass their first year of life, and the 0.3% that grow to be large are almost all technology-based. On the other hand, researchers from universities and other centers of excellence don't have the skills or time to transfer their developed technology to the market. Thus, support is necessary to provide tools to entrepreneurs in order for them to achieve success in their projects and to develop and create positive change in society.
