Former Vice President Al Gore to speak at Common Pitch Chile next month.
International branding company Common will come to Santiago next month for its first appearance in Latin America, bringing with it a cast of prominent speakers including former U.S. Vice President Al Gore.
Common Pitch Chile, a three-day event of speakers, workshops and live music, is devoted to creating conversations and sharing ideas about innovative enterprise and social change. The festival is in partnership with Start-Up Chile, a government program seeking to attract high-potential entrepreneurs and startups to launch in Chile.

They attract talent and it will definitely cascade down to the local startups.”Login to read more.
