Tech Education can Transform Lives and Build Economies

Our Colombia story

  • Colombia has the 4th largest number of Internet users in LATAM.
  • The Colombian government is prioritizing technology innovation and recently created a new ministry in charge of appropriating more resources to develop research projects.
  • AI leader Andrew Ng, the founder of the Google Brain project and former CEO of Coursera, was so impressed by Colombia that he decided to open multiple offices in the country for his AI startups. His support is a signal that leading technology experts have high hopes for Colombia’s nascent technology sector.
  • Colombia was highlighted in the World Bank’s Doing Business Report as “among the many countries around the world reforming their business regulations to stimulate the private sector and spur economic growth.”
