Guadalajara, the Silicon Valley of Mexico? Kueski, Unima, and Interlub weigh in
Humble beginnings and slim pickingsAfter a game of hot potato with the microphone to determine who would speak first, Adalberto Flores (Kueski) took the lead. But not sufficiently for Unima to raise a second funding round with investors in Guadalajara, nor Mexico City. Mexico City takes the lead as the “Silicon Valley of Mexico”? Far too many things, markets, companies, talent, and VCs are concentrated in Mexico City, giving it the edge. Mexico City may have won this round, and it’s unlikely that’ll be changing anytime soon.
