ChileMass is a Massachusetts-based nonprofit organization that catalyzes collaboration between Chile and Massachusetts in the areas of technology, energy, education, and economic development. ChileMass has the support of the Government of Chile, through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Corfo and Prochile; and of the Government of Massachusetts, through the Massachusetts Office of Trade and Investment (MOITI).

ChileMass Innovation Day 2022 is the second of its kind in Massachusetts. The first was in 2019 at MIT and focused on Clean Technologies and Advanced Manufacturing. More than 280 people participated, both from USA and Latin America. The objective of this 2022 event is to strengthen the organization's work in Massachusetts, through a conference that will address challenges in different areas, such as biotech, impact investment, cleantech, and the cities of tomorrow.

This event is possible thanks to the collaboration of MIT Sloan Latin America Office, David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies at Harvard University, and the Embassy of Chile to the United States.
