“Societies are based on their corporations. Entrepreneurship is not an individual achievement, but a noble action that someone can do for their community”.
– Omar Gonzalez Pardo
The word ecosystem is traditionally used to define the habitat where we live. In a very assertive way, this term was transferred to the corporate and business world. Today, it is very common to hear about the start-up ecosystem, a relatively new concept that exists in our daily narrative.
The Oxford Dictionary defines the word ecosystem as following:
“A system, or a group of interconnected elements, formed by the interaction of a community of organisms with their environment”.
This explanation given by English language authority makes clear that when we talk about a start-up ecosystem, we recognize a mutual dependency between entrepreneurs and investors, and vise versa. In Juan Gonzalez – Trinity Capital International Business Director – words: “The success of an entrepreneur is the success of his investors”.
Being consistent with this philosophy, Trinity Capital International supports every activity oriented to make stronger the start-up ecosystems in Canada and Colombia – and in all the countries we reach through our investment portfolio as well. At TCI, we are proactive at searching spaces to exchange experiences and cooperate with actions, that may contribute to the start-up ecosystem consolidation.
Beyond the GDP index – that provides lights about how well or bad the economy is doing during a year – is the welfare concept, that refers to the living conditions and the community access to employment opportunities. Collective welfare is only possible if countries have a strong business ecosystem.
“Societies are based on their corporations. Entrepreneurship is not an individual achievement, but a noble action that someone can do for their community”, says Omar Gonzalez Pardo, Trinity Capital International founder.
Understanding this vision, at Trinity Capital International, we are committed to supporting those initiatives that – through couching and constructive discussions – we can establish a closer relationship with entrepreneurs and other investors.
As part of this commitment, on September 17th Trinity Capital International will be participating in the first Reverse Pitch, organized by Procolombia. There, for the very first time, Colombian entrepreneurs will be able to learn, by first-hand, key components of our investment decision-making process.
