Chicago incubator 1871 and Startup Mexico will work together to grow tech businesses in both cities
A partnership announced Thursday includes reciprocal membership benefits between 1871 and Startup Mexico. Startup México, based in Mexico City, houses small businesses, venture capital firms and corporate partners under one roof.
“1871 is continuing to expand its international relationships in the community of digital entrepreneurs in order to foster disruptive innovation in Chicago and on a global scale,” 1871 CEO Howard A. Tullman said in a statement. The partnership “positions Chicago as the first place where Mexican technology startups will begin expanding their businesses in the US market.”
1871 also has formal agreements with incubators and co-working spaces in London and Tel Aviv.
