Emprende TU Mexico Tech Event – this weekend in Punta Mita


Emprende TU México (which means basically, “Innovate YOUR Mexico”) is a special mega-wattage tech event taking place in Punta Mita this Saturday, May 28, from 10am to 6:30pm. Organized by Emprende Tu México and co-organized by Mexico’s Ministry of Finance, it will bring some of the top players in social media and emerging technologies – and among these, a number of Punta Mita residents—together to discuss solutions and best practices as they may be applied in Mexico via a series of panel discussions. These panel discussions are open for attendance, with prior reservation.

Mexico’s Secretary of Finance, Ernesto Cordero will personally host some of the panel discussions. This summit will specifically focus on uses/cases in Mexico in order to shape Mexican policy and raise awareness for the use of these tools for accountability/democracy. (In the absence of a Vice President in Mexico, the Finance Ministry is the largest and most important of the cabinet ministries, with over 36 sub-sector agencies that include six development banks, funding for federal subsidy programs, and setting President Calderón’s policy objectives.)

The Panel Discussions will include:

  • Innovation and the use of technology as tools for development.
  • Innovation/Technology and Financial Inclusion.
  • Panel with venture capital firms/investors: Entrepreneurship, innovation and access to capital.
  • Designing the Future: Secretary Cordero and Jon Rubenstein.
  • Digital Solutions for Mexico-Using Tech and Social Media.

The event will be streamed live, via Internet, with companion feeds for Twitter and Facebook posts.

We are so proud that the St. Regis and Punta Mita have been selected as the host site for this event, which will have a direct impact on setting Mexico’s policy agendas for the next few years.

This event is open to the public, however prior registration is required, and seating is limited. Please email to request a reservation.
