Felipe Gazitua

Civil-industrial engineer from Universidad Técnica Federico Santa Maria and MBA from Stanford University. He has more than 18 years of experience in senior management consulting (Value Added Partners, Partners in Performance) and in management positions (Enersis, PP&L Global).

Extensive experience in the energy and utilities, mining, retail and mass consumption sectors, in market strategy, organisation and operations. Between 2008 and 2015 he was a visiting lecturer in market strategy and innovation at Universidad Adolfo Ibañez.

He participated in several marketing and consulting enterprises in the roles of co-founder and investor, and has experienced first-hand the difficulties of creating something from scratch and making it grow. Since 2017 he splits his time between consulting and entrepreneurship projects, seeking to contribute with his experience to young entrepreneurs with the potential to improve our country.

My passion has always been in entrepreneurship. The evidence shows that it is the only engine of growth and improvement in the world, and in Chile there is much to be done. Unfortunately there is also much to be done in creating the right environment for entrepreneurs to be successful, and I want to do my bit for this cause. The CGA network seems to me an ideal platform to be able to fulfil this objective.
