Vice Presidency for Innovation

The Panama Business Accelerator (AEP) becomes the Innovation Center, giving the City of Knowledge an experience of over 15 years in promoting entrepreneurship and expanding its vision towards fostering innovation through exchange, collaboration and creativity.

The Innovation Center aims to establish itself as a point of convergence of resources and initiatives for the development and promotion of startups that are innovative and with high potential for growth, both domestically and internationally. Among these resources, we can mention the Acceleration and Mentoring Programs, which will help strengthen the Panamanian entrepreneurship ecosystem.

Besides, it develops a female entrepreneurship development program called "Canal de Empresarias", which seeks to overcome barriers and create opportunities through the creation of new businesses while supporting the growth of existing businesses, and influencing corporate divisions to be more inclusive and responsive to female talent.

The Innovation Center provides companies, organizations and stakeholders, a knowledge based on the experience accumulated by our team, through training and consulting services.
