Silicon Valley to Review Mexican TalentBy
7,600 Mexicans work in this zone’s technology sector.
Global market experts at San Francisco’s Silicon Valley will receive 17 Mexican entrepreneurs who are to present innovative proposals based on scientific and technological development.
Different ground-breaking projects become reality in Silicon Valley, where those interested in the field of technology boost their projects and materialize their ideas.
With the support of Conacyt (Mexico’s National Board of Science & Technology), the Fumec Foundation (Mexico-USA Foundation for Science) launched a project named TechBA in which experts review each project and validate new ideas. According to Haru Yamasaki, head of the TechBA project, the local environment benefits greatly from this program, as the attending entrepreneurs are always looking for new alternatives and innovation.
According to the American Community Survey, Mexico has become a talent exporter to Silicon Valley, as approximately 7,600 Mexicans work in this zone’s technology sector.
Proof of these stories of success is Jordi Muñoz, who started building drones after finding instructions on a “do it yourself” website. This caught the attention of Chris Anderson, former editor of Wired magazine, who became Muñoz’s partner in their unmanned aerial vehicle firm, 3D Robotics.
The company began in the founder’s garage and a few years later turned into one of the biggest firms dedicated to manufacturing of drones for mass consumption worldwide.
Silicon Valley, known as an incubator for talent is the headquarters to many world famous tech and software firms such as Apple and Google. It has opened its doors to thriving Mexican brands, such as: videogame company Larva, surveillance technology software firm Kanna by Incom, and the sustainable homes firm Armados Omega.
