The fourth version of Colombia 3.0, which brought together more than 130 experts in digital content from 14 countries, was held in Bogotá in order to promote the software industry, develop creative solutions and to reduce poverty in the South American country.
The event brought together business owners and entrepreneurs in digital animation, web and mobile development, video games, music, convergence, business and monetization of convergent media, explained the Minister of Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) of Colombia, Diego Molano.
The minister said that Colombia strives to be a world power in the field of digital content, but that they are also looking to technology as a tool to "solve the problems of Colombians, including poverty". For this, the government has allocated, for the next four years, about $ 10,000 million for infrastructure, application development and training.
This event took place in the vicinity of the "Zona T", in the north of the Colombian capital, where there are restaurants, exclusive shops and entertainment places.
The organizers believe that this is time to promote the software industry, the digital content scenario and young Colombian talent.
"We have put in black and white for a week everything that is happening in Colombia with the ICT industry, but especially the industry linked to creativity", Molano said. The minister also said that the Colombian software and applications developers will be highlighted, because "they are making the revolution of information systems in the government". Additionally, he said, the event offers business opportunities for Colombian entrepreneurs and investment opportunities for foreigners.
