About

The Institute is born of an alliance between Miguel Kast Foundation and The UDD, with the conviction that social innovation is a high impact tool for the growth and progress of the country, particularly in overcoming poverty.

In today’s Chile, generating social transformations is necessary to improve the quality of life of citizens and overcome poverty is presented as an unavoidable challenge, long-term and a wingspan such that calls us not only to work together but It forces us to think new forms of intervention; It forces us to innovate.

At the Institute for Social Innovation we aim to enhance the capabilities of people through knowledge generation, dissemination, development and evaluation of strategies in entrepreneurship and social innovation.

Mision

Our mission is to enhance the capabilities of people through knowledge generation, dissemination, development and evaluation of strategies of innovation and social entrepreneurship.

Vision

We want to contribute to society by creating value and influencing the building of a better Chile without poverty. We want a Chile that is responsible for its development and its social problems, especially poverty, through innovation.
