What Investors Are Saying

“Silicon Valley has lost the ability to scale, so people who would be very successful there struggle to break in. Mexico, on the other hand, has been great for finding both middle management and quality programmers for the company.”

Matthew Pasienski - Co-founder and Head of Growth at Wizeline
Leonardo

“The combination of talent, the synergy of companies in the industry, and institutions like CANIETI and IJALTI, is what makes Guadalajara a great place to establish a company.”

Leonardo N’Haux - Co-founder and CEO of Qualtop

“Developers in Mexico already know what the U.S. cultural norms are and how to communicate, so this is a ready-made pool of talent that doesn’t need extensive training to deal with the United States clients.”

Nataliya Anon - CEO of Svitla Systems
Ullie Versavel

“While cost was one of the parameters when choosing a location for our Global Services Center, it was the country’s wealth of talent that sealed the deal.”

Ullie Versavel - Director of Technical Services at Cisco Systems

“Instead of going directly to California, you need to take a pit stop in Mexico, understand the market here, and see the opportunities for yourself, because not everything happens in Silicon Valley.”

Mario Romero - Director at Startup Mexico (SUM)

“No other country offers the benefits and characteristics of Mexico in terms of availability of talent and simplicity of doing business.”

Alejandro Camino - Chief Marketing Officer at Softtek

“Often I get asked what it’s like to work in Mexico. How is it different? I can only say that it has been immeasurably better. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner.”

Andy Kieffer - CEO of Agave Lab

“Mexico City is growing so quickly. In the year and a half that we’ve been in business, I think the number of VCs has multiplied by two or three times.”

David Arana - CEO of Konfio

“The best and most intelligent people in the country are not leaving to go and work for an international firm in another country. They are staying here and working for their people.”

Leonardo de la Cerda - CEO of Kueski

“Mexico has grown up a lot over the years from an IT services perspective.”

Todd Dreger - partner at Information Services Group

“The new generation is more open to the rest of the world. We were a generation that grew up speaking English and felt like the U.S. was not this foreign entity. We felt that it was a close neighbor … So there is really no big cultural gap.”

César Salazar - Former Venture Partner at 500 Startups

“Everything about Mexico is real. It’s a genuine culture that has thriving, grassroots people just wanting to do something bigger and better.”

Rakhee Bhattacharya Das - innoventures executive director at Softtek
