    Our company was involved in looking at this exact question 10 years ago - focussing on the Southern Cone. Chile was then as is now the more forward thinking in terms of VC and angels. The situation then was similar if not the same to the current environment- it is a culture of bricks and mortar and hard assets. Investment in start -ups or development of new products poses a difficult transition from bricks and mortar mentality.
