About La Idea

The La Idea is a program designed to support Latin American entrepreneurs based in the US and the Latin America with resources that will help them cultivate and grow innovative businesses and startups that will generate employment and economic growth throughout the Americas.

In 2013, La Idea conducted a La Idea Business Pitch Competition aimed at helping to provide Latin American Start up and Small Business with funds to promote growth and innovative ideas.

In 2014/15, the U.S. Department of State, under the auspices of U.S. observership in the Pacific Alliance, team up with Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru to kick off the La Idea Incubator Program.  The program supports the creation of new, innovative companies with high growth potential.
