Startupbootcamp Scale FinTech Mexico City

About the Program

Startupbootcamp Scale FinTech Mexico City is an innovation program for high growth FinTech companies to expand globally, increase their revenues, and access leading funding opportunities.

By focusing on seed-funded companies with validated business models, the program is designed to help founders tackle the many challenges related to scaling their technology business.  A particular emphasis will be placed on increasing revenues through targeted access to industry partners. The program will also support founders as they build scalable international operations and prepare for growth stage funding.

Each Startupbootcamp Scale FinTech Mexico City class lasts 6 months and will be limited to 5 companies so we can provide extremely tailored support. While teams do not need to relocate to Mexico City, on-site participation is expected one week once a month for workshops and events. Support will be provided to form a Mexico operating entity if one is not already in place.

In addition to leveraging a targeted group of mentors and investors, founders will work closely with a group of amazing partners who support the Startupbootcamp Scale FinTech Mexico City program including  VisaScotiabankHSBC MexicoBanregio,  IGNIALATINIA, Fiinlab powered by Gentera, EY Mexico, and White & CaseThese key industry players will provide executive level access to their extensive network and explore partnership opportunities with each company joining the program.
