I’ve been living in Chile off and on since November 2010 when I arrived as part of the pilot round of Startup Chile.
When I got here as part of the pilot round in 2010, I didn’t know anything about Chile. I had the time of my life and ended up selling my business a few months after returning to the US. This is the book that I wished I had when I arrived.
I’ve now lived in Chile for over a year and will share everything I’ve learned. You’ll get the inside scoop about how to best take advantage of the program, and your time in Chile. The book is divided into four sections: Startup Chile 101, Living in Chile, Doing Business in Chile and Traveling in South America.
Startup Chile 101 talks about the program’s history, the reimbursement process and how to get the most out of the program. The second part covers Chilean culture, where to live, safety and a city guide detailing where to go out, have a beer or have a nice meal. Part three talks about the Chilean entrepreneurial culture, doing business in Chile and hiring talent. Finally, the last section has travelouges of places I’ve gone in South America where you might enjoy taking a trip for a long weekend.
The book costs $10 and I can guarantee it’s worth it. If you have any questions, comments or feedback, please shoot me an email, otherwise enjoy the book!

Bought your book. I noticed that it’s 190MB. Probably due to highres pictures. Would be good if you could downscale the pictures. I think that way you get a file that will be several factors smaller
Thanks! I’ve downsized a bunch of them and can get it down to 1.4mb, but with poor image quality. Would love to hear what you thought of the book, am still improving it. Shoot me an email or we can connect via skype!
