Rethink what's possible in 2022: the world needs more entrepreneurs to lead the way in creating a better future, for everyone.

Whether you have already launched a startup or are still in the idea-phase, now is the time to act. The global community is incrementally moving slow and steady toward an eventual post-pandemic future, but today it remains filled with reshuffled industries and new problems in need of solutions. As we continue into 2022 and beyond, each and every entrepreneur has the opportunity to play a part in helping shape that better future.

 That's why we are excited to announce applications are now open for the Mexico City Virtual 2022 program.

If you could use a structured process and a lifetime of support from Mexico City's top investors and entrepreneurs to build something meaningful, then apply to the Mexico City Virtual 2022 Founder Institute today.

Program Update: This accelerator will be run online with local and international mentors, with the potential for some optional in-person networking. Learn more on our Virtual Program FAQ page.

We will be hosting several free startup online events in Mexico City over the coming weeks, where you can learn virtually from top entrepreneurs from the comfort of your home:
