    Someone recently forwarded this link and now i know why everyone was asking about Startup Chile with me. We (i7 networks) actually did get selected as mentioned n the article but unfortunately we declined to take up this offer as we got busy with the traction and implementations we got here in India and hence had to pass up this offer :-( but very happy to get busy with the customers – after all that is the reason why we exist!!

    But in no means it shows any negative stance towards Startup Chile and we heard that it is really a good program and I feel indian startups should continue to apply and take advantage of their offer.
