Schools like Stanford and Harvard, foundations like Kauffman, cities like Detroit and New York, and even countries where the idea of individual initiative has been somehow strange are now fostering entrepreneurship," says Donald Fox, a longtime friend of INCAE and member of the President's Advisory Council. Fox is also a Charles Haimoff Endowment Trustee and the lead donor of INCAE's new Latin American Center for Entrepreneurs.

The new center was presented at a dinner offered as part of an event held on November 11 and 12 by the Latin American Forum for Entrepreneurs combining logic and creativity, the artistic and analytical spirit of entrepreneurs. The event featured presentations on entrepreneurship by world-renowned lecturers together with dancers, musicians and local artists.

So, they unanimously chose to engage in a project which is key to the INCAE experience, namely, restoring the children's playing area in the married couples section of Campus Walter Kissling Gam, a space coveted and loved by the children of many INCAE graduates.

"Students' wives used to meet there every day at 4:00 pm. In a sense, children and wives were part of the class. It was the place to socialize," said MBA 2016 Oswaldo Silva. He added that his was a very cohesive class, with strong relations between students' families.
