Mejorando las oportunidades de empleo de los jóvenes de Valparaíso

Chile ha sido una de las economías de más rápido crecimiento en la región en la última década. Sin embargo, al igual que el resto de la región de América Latina y el Caribe, la mitad de las empresas enfrentan dificultades para encontrar trabajadores cualificados, especialmente para puestos técnicos y operarios, y el crecimiento sostenido a medio plazo se ve amenazado.  Por otro lado, hay un potencial de 4,2 millones de jóvenes, y especialmente los más desventajados, que corren el riesgo de ser excluidos del crecimiento económico. Esto se debe a que reciben insumos de baja calidad del sistema educativo y con limitada alineación con las necesidades de los sectores productivos.

Delivering profit and purpose through corporate venturing

Delivering profit and purpose through corporate venturing

Companies are holding onto significant amounts of cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments, approximately $19 trillion dollars’ worth. This eye-popping number comes from a recent analysis of the balance sheets of publicly traded operating companies generating over $100 million in annual profits, using S&P Capital IQ data. US publicly traded companies lead the way with over $5 trillion in their treasure chests, followed by Japan with $4 trillion and China with $2.2 trillion. In Latin America, Brazilian firms have over $350 billion available on their balance sheet.

Corporate venturing: How to survive and thrive in the 21st century

Sixty-one. That is how many companies on the Fortune 500 list were able to hold their spots from 1955 to 2015.  A full 88% fell off during this 60-year period. What caused this corporate extinction?  Well, one way to think about this question is to look at those that held their place on this list.

The Sum of the Parts: Why Partnerships Matter in Youth Employment

The Sum of the Parts: Why Partnerships Matter in Youth Employment

For anyone working in development, the topic of youth unemployment is central, remains virtually unabated, and drives much debate over the right paths, strategies, partnerships, and funding mechanisms. Yet, for those organizations in the trenches, they know that working on improving youth employability can be a critical lever to addressing other problems such as security, drug addiction, and teenage pregnancy. This dynamic is not lost on the Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF), the innovation lab of the Inter-American Development Bank Group, nor on the International Youth Foundation (IYF).

Innovation: the new Latin American entrepreneurial brand

Innovation: the new Latin American entrepreneurial brand
