Last friday we were invited to a special event in Chile’s Presidential Palace. The man in charge, Sebastián Piñera — aka. the President — along with the Minister of Economy, Pablo Longueira, granted three awards to companies considered outstanding from a poll of over fifteen hundred.

Turns out we were one of them.

Piñera — whom you might recall from the famous episode of the miners being rescued — gave us an award for being the most innovative company of the year.
