In order to encourage innovation in young people, the Consortium of Universities, of which Universidad del Pacífico (UP) is a member, held the 'Innovation Weekend' with the support of Visa, on Saturday, November 11 and Sunday, November 12. 

The activity aimed for students from different programs at UP and other universities to develop solutions for financial inclusion. They used their imagination to design innovative proposals in a 48-hour workshop using new methodologies such as 'Design Thinking', which serves to create high-impact products or services.

​How to make people trust banks and how to reduce the use of cash in day-to-day purchases are the challenges posed to university students. At the end of the 'Innovation Weekend ' about 60 young people will have the tools to develop creative skills that will help them to interact in the entrepreneurial ecosystem. "We know that the country's growth is in the hands of multidisciplinary teams of leaders. 

Therefore, the Consortium composed of students from different universities and programs comes together to provide solutions to real problems of the national economy", said Martin Carrillo, director of the Consortium.
