The Energy Challenge Germany: German Startups for the Energy Transition in Chile is an acceleration program, organized by the AHK Chile and the State of Bavaria Office for South America, together with WERK1, Fraunhofer Ventures and SpinLab, within the framework of the Energy Partnership Chile-Alemania.


The aim of this program is to introduce energy startups in Germany to industry representatives from Chile, present them the innovative potential of the German start-up landscape and to open international business opportunities in the Chilean energy sector for German startups.


The winners of the program will be invited to visit Chile to explore the business opportunities of the Chilean market, meet potential partners and clients, like corporates, research centers and accelerators. They will also have the opportunity to exchange experiences with the local energy startup ecosystem. Furthermore, they will be able to present their startups at a special event organized at Exponor, the International Exhibition for Technologies and Innovations in Mining & Energy and one of Chile's most important fairs.


All German energy startups are invited to participate!
