Geco is a Think & Do company that is focused on unlocking the potential businesses have to achieve local sustainable development. They do this with two ways. The first is co-creating with their clients the community strategies and relation programs in place. Geco works on initiatives that create trust to build associative and collaborative relationships; develop opportunities to maximize the positive impact of business by promoting local development, and manage social investment through sustainable projects and social impact. The second course is through developing GeCo projects and partnership initiatives that add value for all the involved parts by incorporating the base of the pyramid to the business value chain. One example of this is the case of the development of a maqui nectar "Newen Maqui " that was implemented with local harvesting communities, private companies, and the public sector. Today this is a product that, in addition to be beneficial to the environment and consumers, returns part of the profitability to communities. For more information, visit
