Banistmo establishes strategic alliance with CdS Innovation Center
Recently Banistmo signed a strategic alliance with the City of Knowledge Foundation, with the aim of promoting innovation and entrepreneurship through the innovation centers of both organizations.
This strategic alliance allows the contribution in the design of programs and projects that drive innovation initiatives, as well as facilitating the opening of accounts to startups and SMEs that are part of the entrepreneurial ecosystem of these entities.
"Banistmo continues to reinforce its commitment to those who wish to start their own businesses, giving them the opportunity to access with customers of our Private Banking segment to invest in startups of the City of Knowledge Innovation Center," said Diego Ponce, Vice President of Innovation and Digital Transformation of Banistmo.
The signing of this alliance will contribute to generate a relationship for those who converge to these centers, so that they can make pilot plans, prototypes and joint tests in the development of new businesses.
For his part, Jorge Arosemena, Executive President of the City of Knowledge Foundation, stressed that "this is a great opportunity for Banistmo as for the City of Knowledge, which allows both of us to continue consolidating ourselves as a point of convergence of resources for the promotion of startups with high potential for growth both nationally and internationally."
Banistmo reaffirms its commitment as an innovative financial institution and therefore establishes itself as an allied bank of the City of Knowledge, not only by supporting them with the Canal de Empresarias project, but with all the projects they develop in order to generate a cultural change, equality of opportunities, empowerment in decision making, and leadership training to lead projects of great impact for the country.
