Interactuar

Interactuar is a Social Development Corporation based in Medellín, Colombia, whose mission is to generate and support permanent employment in the department of Antioquia. It does so by creating and consolidating family businesses that impact the social and economic development of populations living with limited resources.

Since 1983, Interactuar has been supporting more than 300,000 entrepreneurs to start and grow businesses that have created more than 500,000 new employment opportunities. Interactuar provides low-income populations in urban and rural areas with a variety of microfinance and business development services, such as Entrepreneurship Programs, Training and Specialized Advice, including Food Laboratory and Design Services.

This model has achieved significant results in the metropolitan area of Medellín and has also met the needs of entrepreneurs in more than 100 municipalities in the department of Antioquia. Interactuar has earned national and international recognition for its contributions to the development of disadvantaged communities. Interactuar truly believes in the crowdfunding concept, as it allows people who are part of this unique community of “likeminded individuals who believe in the power of changing the world through small acts” to help create a more collaborative economy.
