For the first time in its history Mexico with 16 state governments is launching an initiative that has the potential to be a game changer for Mexicans on both sides of the border.
Looking to capitalize remittances, Mexico’s second highest source of income, the initiative aims to ignite the entrepreneurial spark in Mexicans living abroad and in their country of origin. Expo Mexico Emprende, a three-day event to be held in Los Angeles on August 19-21, 2011, will bring together in one place and at one time a plethora of government programs designed to help Mexicans start and grow businesses. The objective is to create jobs, combat poverty and improve the quality of life for families in the U.S. and Mexico.
Envisioned as an interactive conference open to everyone, the Mexican government is bringing to the people all that today’s Mexico has to offer. Potential entrepreneurs will discover that present day Mexico has in place countless programs ready to assist and partner with them to create and grow businesses.
