Startup Weekend Guaymas

November 14th, 2014

Regular program Startup Weekend will be launched in Guaymas, México for the very first time during Global Startup Battle 2014.

The Sonoran Technological Institute, a local based university will host the event in his modern CEEDER Building used by the students of the Software Engineer career.

Entrepreneurs, developers, marketers and business people in the metropolitan area of Guaymas be the target audience for this first event in the city.

This will strengthen the activities of the Digital Guaymas Initiative that seeks to create communities by organizing technical events and entrepreneurial ecosystem.

We expect the participation of 70 to 100 participants during the weekend from 14 to 16 November.


Knowledge is the most valuable asset, so it is important to involve experienced mentors like Manuel Molina, Joel Avendano, Jesus Gaxiola, Roberto Limon, Sixto Mexia, Diana Orantes and Alexis Sanchez, among others.

Guaymas, northwest of Mexico is a city in the state of Sonora whose economy is leveraged by various industries such as aerospace, fishing, tourism, port activity and settlement of parastatal companies in the energy industry.

The experience gained through Startup Weekend definitely have a positive impact on our society and economy.
