Doing business here is almost like doing business in the U.S.

Mexico’s tech hub is being built in Guadalajara, and there is no wonder why this city is being called Mexico's Silicon Valley. The region's talent pool and creative innovation are helping to establish it as a global tech center.

The article states that Guadalajara has hosted big-name companies since 1960, with the arrival of IBM and Motorola to build semiconductors and silicon wafers. These companies were attracted by its young and qualified engineers graduating from top universities around the country. Around $120 million in venture capital funding, mostly coming from the United States, has been invested in nearly 300 Guadalajara-based start-ups since 2014. Ideal conditions, such as proximity to the USA, NAFTA, IP protection, time zone and cultural affinity makes the country a strong competitor to India and a rising IT star in Latin America.

“Doing business here is almost like doing business in the U.S.,” says Anurag Kumar, chief executive and co-founder of iTexico.

Government will continue to support IT programs as Creative Digital City is being designed as an ecosystem for creative minds to share knowledge and influence future generations to produce high-impact projects.

“All the products made in Jalisco can be delivered anywhere in the U.S. in less than 24 hours,” says Jalisco’s governor, Aristóteles Sandoval. “We have a port two hours away; the time zone is almost the same.”

The demand for services and products will increase in the next few years and Mexico will have the capacity to deliver world-class software development services. “There’s a growing sense of opportunity,” says Mak Gutiérrez, director of Hackers and Founders.
