IDEMAX Summit was born with the purpose of setting up conversations that allow us to reflect on the future, with an eye on the next 100 years with the aim of generating today the necessary changes to design and mobilize businesses that are responsible for the climate emergency. “At IDEMAX we believe that the future is today, that it is affecting our lives and that we must carry out this type of initiative to commit ourselves strategically,” says its founder, Rosario Navarro, director of Sofofa and vice president of SONDA.
-What are the main challenges presented at this Summit?
If there are no effective commitments, there are no concrete challenges to embrace, therefore it is not enough to support, but rather we must be active mobilizers of an agenda for the generation of knowledge and collaboration, through different interest groups. In this way, continue advancing in the generation of enablers and businesses.
The conversation left innumerable tasks on matters of Clean Tech for an effective Energy Transition, in which the guests promised to continue collaborating and establishing significant links with other actors seeking carbon neutrality. In this regard, they point out from the initiative, IDEMAX will launch X20, an investment platform that creates and invests in clean tech startups from Chile for the world that take charge of solving energy problems.
The environmental urgency is a convening trigger, as well as the need to link for a radical and effective public-private collaboration to achieve the proposed goals. More science and research for making correct and timely decisions brought together a very diverse wealth of guests, with a lot of political contrast and different worldviews. Entrepreneurs, startups, scientists, academia, energy companies, corporations and policy makers. The former ministers Ignacio Briones and Andrés Couve and the current Minister of Economy, Nicolás Grau, as well as the Manager of Monetary Policy of the Central Bank and Hubtec and entrepreneurs from the clean tech world.
“The meeting did not have a formal closure, but it left big questions to continue talking and address, with a sense of urgency, the present and future challenges to take charge of the deep transformations that we have in terms of Clean Tech, for the Transition Energy of Chile and the world”, concludes Navarro.
