The Mexico City Founder Institute, the local chapter of the world's largest pre-seed startup accelerator, is proud to announce the newest Alumni from the Mexico City Virtual 2022 program.

Over 200+ prospective entrepreneurs applied to the program, and after an intense four months of aggressive business-building sprints and constant evaluation and feedback from investors and mentors, just nine companies were able to make it through. 

Each of these Founders have demonstrated a high level of perseverance and creativity, and their businesses have been thoroughly vetted and supported by a panel of Mexico's top startup experts and investors.  

The new Alumni invite the Mexican startup ecosystem and members of the public join them live on Tuesday, June 14th for a special online Graduation Event - RSVP free here

Without further ado, we proudly present the newest Founder Institute CDMX Alumni:
