Innovative business models in the Latin American publishing sector
Daniel Benchimol and CERLALC have joined forces to consolidate innovative business models in the publishing sector in Latin America.
Daniel Benchimol, head of Proyecto451, an agency that helps more than 200 publishers and organizations (small, medium, and large) throughout Latin America and Spain in the challenging process of transformation proposed by new technologies, collaborates with CERLALC in the mapping of innovative business models in the publishing sector in Latin America.
This work will seek to identify those projects within the book industry in Latin America that has been able to generate a novel model as a form of livelihood. Both Daniel and CERLACL are starting to work on this mapping right now and need the collaboration of the public.
Considerations for including a project in this map:
- The project must have emerged from Latin America, even if it already has a presence in other regions.
- It must be a current and active project, with a clear future perspective.
- It must have demonstrated a concrete impact in terms of objective results. For example, the number of readers reached.
- And fundamentally, it must have an innovative or different support model from the traditional one.
The main objective of this research consigned by CERLALC and carried out by Proyecto451 is to track projects within the book industry in Latin America that seek to create and capture value in a novel way. That is, that has a novel business model as a form of livelihood. We seek, through this form, to open the possibility that any project can apply to be considered within this map.
If you are interested, we invite you to be part of this research.
