Mapping the Digital Technology Ecosystem in Bolivia
Emprender Futuro, one of the initiatives of 2020 GCL Impact Award winner and 2009 GCL alumna Allison Silva joined forces with Funda-Pro, Fundacion Solydes, and BIM Asset Management for a second consecutive year to develop the Digital Technology Ecosystem Mapping for Bolivia.
They analyzed the most outstanding findings from last year and the first semester of 2020. The report presents the evolution of startups, the markets to which they direct their products, the more broadly used technologies, the relationship between startups and the corporate world, technology and the environment; and the impact of COVID-19 in the digital technology industry.

Now, more than ever, it is important that the different actors that make up the ecosystem can work together to articulate actions and thus have a strong, attractive ecosystem that generates value for startups. The future may offer us new opportunities, however, this requires investing our efforts and making a determined commitment to the use of technology. Today we are faced with new challenges that will require new skills and ways of problem solving. Technology through startups are great sources of innovation that will enable this rebound."
