MX.FR Innovation Day was born with the objective to strengthen the Mexican and French entrepreneurial ecosystems through an annual event. The first MX.FR meeting will take place in Paris next October 5th and 6th 2015.
This event is emblematic as it marks the kick-off of the first actions taken between France and Mexico after the visit of Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto in Paris last July. Mexico and France have a long time relationship; therefore, to foster both countries´ entrepreneurial ecosystem is a natural step.
Mexico’s startup ecosystem is internationalizing and represents the door to Latin-American markets. France has the most ambitious entrepreneurial programs in Europe such as Paris French Tech Ticket.
MX.FR 1st Innovation Day – Sustainable Cities
Paris October 5th and 6th 2015
For the first MX.FR the chosen theme is sustainable cities. Why? Because innovation and sustainability are key challenges for the partner cities, and both are developing increasing efforts to face tomorrow´s challenges.
In order to answer the problematic of Sustainable Cities, the first edition of MX.FR will be composed of two complementary elements:
- Mexican Startups pitch day
- Call for concepts Panel
This is the profile for Call for concepts Panel during which the finalists of the competetion will present their concepts on what could be done in the space of Mexico City´s old airport.
