Contxto – Personal training, mentorship, and exposure to potential investors. Like a timeless venture capital recipe, these factors will surely help the following 10 early-stage technology startups evolve into stardom at MassChallenge’s Facebook Accelerator CDMX 2019.
Running from November 12 to February 21, this alliance aims to assist fledgling tech companies with Mexican operations to take their products and services to the next level. Part of this entails optimizing their tools and embracing their high-growth potential.
As such, the MassChallenge acceleration program will focus on the training part of programming, while Facebook will provide direct tech support to entrepreneurs. This includes web-based tools to improve transactions and measure metrics.
Not only do both intend to assist participants in achieving business goals but to also fortify Mexico’s economy.
“This type of collaboration between accelerators and corporations help cement the economic development of our country,” said Camila Lecaros, Managing Director of MassChallenge México, in a recent press release.
“The entrepreneurship environment will be highly benefited by the collaboration between Facebook and MassChallenge Mexico.”
As the program is now in full swing, take a look at the following startups involved in this year’s cohort:
