Following the success of MIT REAP Team Monterrey, Mexico (Global Cohort 6, 2018-2020), Tec Monterrey (Tecnologico de Monterrey) led the charge to continue their MIT REAP journey with a broader group of regional leaders through the MIT REAP Focus program. Focus Mexico is poised to strengthen the financial opportunities and networks across the country  which support their entrepreneurs in order to drive economic growth and social impact.

Tecnologico de Monterrey, a key university stakeholder throughout Mexico, has been essential in the formation of the regional teams that will participate in Focus Mexico. In the MIT REAP Global program, the leadership from Tec de Monterrey experienced first-hand how it is essential to recognize and take action to combat the lack of integration of various stakeholders, as reflected in the success one of their MIT REAP Strategies – MTY University for Founders, the first multi-university platform focused on collaboration and bringing together entrepreneurs and investors; using MIT REAP’s  collective impact model for accelerating the growth of innovation-driven enterprises (IDEs) in Mexico.

In collaboration with key partners, Tecnologico de Monterrey has mobilized five teams that represent different regions across the country to participate in the Focus program to employ targeted IDE ecosystem acceleration models and frameworks within their regions.

The communities throughout Mexico have global impact, and with the MIT REAP Focus program, their comparative advantages are poised to accelerate outcomes for entrepreneurs in Mexico.

The objective is for each MIT REAP Focus Mexico team to:

  • Elevate the comparative advantage of its region;
  • Develop platforms that bring together key stakeholders to accelerate their IDEs;
  • Create strategies that generate impact locally;
  • Leverage the strength of their collective action to create positive outcomes for their communities.

The MIT REAP Focus Mexico program is a one year engagement from May 2022 to May 2023.

MIT REAP Focus Mexico is currently in Action Phase 0.

“Certainly the value that has been provided by MIT REAP, that we developed in Monterrey, was amazing. Trust the process, engage, and commit. This will be of great value to each one of the cities.”
