The Innovalatino report draws upon new evidence, information and analysis regarding innovation in Latin America. The report presents results from an exclusive survey of over 1500 manufacturing firms from eight countries (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay). The report also brings together over 50 case studies --"vignettes"-- of various firms and organizations identified as innovation leaders in their sectors. Together, these data highlight that innovation means more than catching-up or even leapfrogging by imitating innovative firms from more developed economies. In several revealing cases, Latin American businesses are redefing global business by developing new business models.
