Mexico is the cradle for many new businesses and startups, which it’s natural that there are many events, increasing over time, dedicated to inspiring the entrepreneurs in the country.
Events for entrepreneurs are a meeting place that works for networking, motivation and providing tools that help boost a company. Such events usually happen under different names: fairs, forums, conferences or expos. However, their goal is the same: promote relationships and provide new ideas.
Inside the events, experts on their fields give conferences and share their vision on the subject with others. Plus, brands and enterprises also benefit when presenting their products or services and by making activations or being in stands.
According to Forbes, in Mexico the 99.8% of the economic units are Little and Medium Enterprises (PyMes). Additionally, according to the Economy Secretariat, every month 35 thousand PyMes are created in the country and a little over 6% of the young people between 18 and 24 years old are business owners.
It’s safe to say that Mexico is an entrepreneur country, and there are events dedicated for this niche that cannot be missed:
