Event description
Chicago & Latin American Tech Innovation: Synergies & Opportunities

About this Event

Join us for networking and conversation about the similarities and synergies between the Chicago and Latin America tech innovation communities.

Since MITA was last in Chicago, the announcement by SoftBank to dedicate a $5-billion investment fund dedicated to Latin American innovation was the tipping point to placing this region in the spotlight of global tech investment opportunities.

We’ll look at what has transpired in the past year, as well as opportunities going forward, highlighting the similarities, synergies, and opportunities between the Chicago and Mexico Tech Innovation communities. Both have startups focused on tech solutions for manufacturing, finance, agriculture, education, medicine, and other core industries.

We believe that opportunities exist by building a stronger alliance between these two under-appreciated -- yet exciting -- startup hubs, so join us in making this happen!

We'll enjoy networking and conversation, accompanied by wine, tequila, & nibbles.
