Hope you are having a good week and you are on your way of conquering the world. Here is a cool insight for you...
Currently, there are lots of tech-companies or startups from all over the world trying to potentialize their product/service in the United States. Unfortunately, they do not have a place to land, and start with their commercial expansion. This is why most of them, they do not take the risk and do not go global. Mx Challenge was created to help those companies that are looking to go global and validate their product/service outside of their home country. We started with Mexico, but after we validate the challenge by bringing companies, we are thinking of replicating it with other countries.
Which country do you think that should be next?
How are you doing with the Mx Challenge? Hope you are already helping startups expand into San Antonio, just remember about the $500,000 USD prize. Also, I want to encourage you to not be shy and speak up if you have any questions related to the new language. Jesus Salas is always going to be there to guide you through and even he can also connect you with other people that are participating as well.
