GoFest 2023: the festival of Latin American entrepreneurship in Bogotá

The Bogotá Chamber of Commerce (CCB) has expressed an interest in promoting Bogotá and Colombia towards a prominent role as an epicenter of entrepreneurship in Latin America. Over the past few years, this capital city has emerged with great force, building an entrepreneurial ecosystem that is constantly evolving.

Gofest: Transformation in the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Scenario in Colombia and Latin America

Based on the recent StartupBlink Global Startup Ecosystem Index 2023 Report, Bogotá has settled in the third position within Latin America, marking a rise of two places from the previous year, 2022. Globally, it has also registered a significant advance, climbing from 77th place in 2021 to 65th place in 2023, which is equivalent to an advance of 12 positions in the general classification.

It is with a sense of pride that the CCB actively contributes to the process of consolidating Bogotá as the capital of Latin America in terms of innovation and entrepreneurship. This has motivated the creation of spaces such as the already renowned Gofest, whose purpose is to energize and strengthen the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the city. This festival has become one of the most outstanding events in the field of entrepreneurship and innovation in Colombia, with the aspiration to rise even higher and become one of the main ones in the entire Latin American region.
