Company Snapshot

Childhood friends Alberto and Felipe are the entrepreneurs behind Latitud90, dedicated to the promotion, sale and operation of high-quality special-interest tourism in Chile. With their superior local knowledge of routes and landscapes in Chile, Latitud90 offers excursions not available through traditional travel channels: wine tours, salmon and trout fishing, sea kayaking among dolphins, even climbing volcanoes. Latitud90 has grown despite a global tourism recession, and is seen as the local leader in adventure tourism. Since selection by Endeavor, the number of jobs has grown by 710%.

Endeavor and Latitud 90

Endeavor Chile has devoted significant resources to Latitud90, and played a role in the company’s expansion. In addition to the eMBA program, which helped with a business plan, the Entrepreneurs benefited from legal, strategic, financial, and HR advice, and help solidifying partner relationships. They also received support from an Ernst & Young Fellow.
