Abstract

This is a Spanish version. Fundacion Chile shows how a private non-profit corporation contributes to technological innovation and develops productive links, adds value and generates technological and human skills in a diversified economy, based on natural resources. It is a star example of an enterprise based on science and technology that was set up and grew to become a leading technology institution, recognised nationally and internationally. The case poses the direct question of what strategy Fundacion, with its solid record of accomplishment in technology transfer and new business development, should follow to assure its own future in a changing environment. To answer this question, students will need to perform a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) analysis in light of Fundacion's mission. This leads to a deeper issue, the institution's replicability in other national environments.
