Buenos Aires Entrepreneurs Leveraging Public Policy to Boost Startup Ecosystem

When you arrive in Buenos Aires, there is an immediate sense of prestige; European culture is everywhere.

You are reminded of this as you receive a customary kiss on the cheek during business greetings, pass Italian architecture, and hear echoes of distinct Argentine Spanish. The city is riddled with Euro-culture that will leave you disoriented.

This has attracted digital nomads and tech behemoths from all around the world, which in turn have taken part in creating one of the most potent cities for technology startups in Latin America. With all of this rich history and developed culture, you wouldn’t think twice about its economy.

Interview with REDOXIGEN

This is an Interview with Min Chen, CEO and founder of REDOXIGEN, a technology consultancy firm based in Panama. The interview explains their journey, who they are and their inspired vision of the future. Min also talks about their revolutionary new game, Interfase, which will be released very soon in conjunction with the Seedstars Regional Championships next week.

How would you define REDOXIGEN and where did the idea come from?

I have been an entrepreneur for over 10 years now working in my firm as an innovation and technology consultant for large companies and government institutions. After helping companies from difference sizes and challenges, I have seen patterns that led me to think that tech start-ups can also be created with an engineering approach. If we think of every start-up as a product of the same product line, then each of the components used in each start-up can be reused. Hence we can have a portfolio of solutions and we can create synergy between them.

The idea came many years ago when I could not find a good salad here, this became a reoccurring thought over many years. I have known for a while that with my passion and experience for cooking, that this is what I want to do. Also my friends kept encouraging me to open something after tasting my salads and middle eastern dishes. Finally, this year I had the time that I could create the company. The Travelling Greens is basically, rich, fresh and gourmet salads which take inspiration from ingredients and flavours from my mother’s amazing cooking and things that I have experienced throughout my live.
