2022 | StartupBlink View the Global Startup Map p. 181 Startup Ecosystem Overview Colombia has seen an immense geopolitical recovery since 2000 and its startup ecosystems have followed suit with impressive advances, transforming the country into a regional Latin American startup hub. Offering both affordability and a strong relationship with neighboring countries, Colombia boasts one of the strongest startup scenes in South America. Colombia's ecosystem emergence is truly unique, and serves as an inspiration to countries wondering whether they can transform into regional or even global tech leaders. The US$1 billion investment of Softbank in Rappi, a Colombian delivery app, is a powerful signal that shows the potential of Colombian startups as they take the lead in the region. 3rd nationally, Cali slightly increased in rank this year, ascending 5 spots to 293rd and holding its position in the global top 300. This is the 3rd year in a row in which we see Cali climb the ranks, realizing significant progress. 4th nationally, the city of Barranquilla has made one of the biggest jumps of 2022, breaking into the top 500 globally. Barranquilla leapt up an amazing 410 places to 426th globally. More startups such as Plazzi and Ontop are lining up to follow in Rappi's footsteps. By continuing to improve the infrastructure of the country, the public sector can ensure quality of life is high enough to retain Colombian entrepreneurs while attracting more foreign talent. Colombia’s startup ecosystems benefit from public initiatives aimed at promoting startups, along with a variety of accelerators and incubators, to help launch early stage ventures. The government has also created a favorable climate for investment and made several types of investment visas available. Colombia is unique in the proactive approach of its municipal chambers of commerce towards startup ecosystem development; In most countries, chambers of commerce are focused on classic industries, but in Colombia the focus is squarely on future economic growth. Contributing to these public sector initiatives are some additional notable stakeholders like Bogota Chambers of Commerce, iNNpulsa Colombia, and Invest in Bogota. Also noteworthy, Ruta-N is taking the lead in the development of the Medellin ecosystem. While Bogota is the national leader when it comes to the maturity of a startup ecosystem, there are a few younger hubs attracting more and more attention.
