Aug. 10, 2011 - PRLog -- Santiago, Chile – Shonika Proctor, urban innovator and serial entrepreneur known for her groundbreaking work with teen entrepreneurs and young changemakers across the globe, announced today that she was selected to participate in the U.S. White House Urban Entrepreneurship Summit.  She was invited to speak at the Summit which was broadcast on August 8, 2011 about her work with Chilean and Latin American entrepreneurs and the importance of investing in Chile’s growing entrepreneurship community.  

The President recognizes the critical role that entrepreneurship plays in creating jobs and economic opportunity for the American people. The Administration is committed to creating public-private partnerships to support current entrepreneurs and spark the next generation of urban entrepreneurs who will strengthen our economy, create sustainable economic opportunities, and compete globally.

"President Obama wants the U.S. to out innovate, out educate and out build the rest of the world but seems to forget there are Americans all throughout the world working to stimulate entrepreneurship in emerging markets and create economic opportunities and jobs abroad, states Proctor. Look at Hyundai. They built a $1 billion manufacturing plant in Birmingham, AL that provides thousands of jobs. Read the back history on them. The Hyundai Pony built in 1974 was a collaborative effort among multiple countries including Italy, U.S.A., UK and France. Over the course of a generation, Hyundai now manufactures cars in their entirety and owns all its engine technology. The U.S. needs to create with the world, starting with their neighbors in Latin America.¨

Proctor was joined by Dan Brewington, Founder of I Love Chile (, an all English language media group based in Santiago, Chile. I Love Chile promotes English in Chile and Chile in English and is working to help Chile become a bilingual country which is essential for it to become a fully developed country.  Proctor and Brewington are active in the Chilean startup community and offer synergistic work across the sectors of communication, media, entrepreneurship and innovation.  They are supported by the U.S. Embassy in Chile.

Proctor writes the Entrepreneur Hunter column for I Love Chile and hosts an English language radio program on the I Love Chile Radio Network. She is also a host of their Community Engagement group which helps to make local brands more global and global brands more local .
