Although 70% of Latin America’s population live within the poverty line, few startups focus on this segment. As a result, many people across the continent are missing out on transformational products, services and opportunities. Launched by Facebook and MassChallenge Mexico, Startup Hub CDMX gives startups the chance to tackle underserved communities in Mexico with the launch of solutions supporting their core values.
Throughout the 16-week program, Facebook provides technical assistance, access to employees, training on Facebook Developer Tools and credits for tools and services from top-level partners. Startups on the program also benefit from advice from mentors, workshops on many topics and access to experts from MassChallenge.
