THE PROBLEM: Accelerated urbanization and lack of urban planning that hamper the performance of companies, making them less competitive, reproducing social exclusion and inequality and negatively impacting the management of natural resources.
URBAN PLANNING CHALLENGES
In Latin America, the growth of cities has occurred in a disorderly way, meeting more needs related to unbridled urbanization than planning investments in infrastructure and services, thus creating some of the most populous and problematic urban areas in the world.
Accelerated urbanization without planning has a strong negative impact on education and health, fueling problems related to mobility, pollution and security, creating social tensions exacerbated by unemployment and social inequality.
The absence of a culture of long-term urban planning and the application of a real estate development model aimed mainly at speculation are among the causes of all this.
In the globalized and increasingly competitive market, internationalization of companies is a great challenge, especially for SMEs, which they also suffer from global competition in their local markets.
Unlike large companies, SMEs have little chance of develop their business and compete internationally.

Difficulty in hiring excellent services and obtaining information from reliable sources;
Inadequacy to digital transformation;
Obsolescence, low production capacity and productivity, etc.
