Mexico City


FTC - Mexico City (17x4).jpg

Mexico City has established itself as the 2nd biggest Latin American Fintech Ecosystem with over 330 startups. The country's financial structure is starting to show disruption in different areas. Nevertheless, innovators need guidance and knowledge from more developed and inclusive financial systems. Financial transformation represents an excellent opportunity for the country and foreign investment. Working for deeper financial inclusion in the country and above average returns makes Mexico City an ideal objective for the community to create positive impact.

As Co-community Partner of Fintech Connector Mexico, Miguel and I are beginning to create Mexico’s international FinTech Connector area with events, visiting contacts, and referring enablers and innovators to join the community. I am always approaching the most influential people and thought leaders to create synergies and alliances for both FinTech Connector and our members. I am interested in attracting financial institutions, tech companies, fintech/blockchain organization, and universities to join our global Fintech member platform.

I am a proactive person with an entrepreneurial mindset who has worked in public and private finance sectors. I work as Financial Director in a Fintech firm and I have more than 13 years of experience in both the public and private sectors.

I studied International Relations and have an MBA from Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education. I completed some courses in finance and I have a certificate from MIT on Fintech & Future Commerce. I also studied abroad focusing on Latin American studies and International Finance & Banking in countries such as Switzerland, Canada, Argentina, and China.

Additionally, I am an advisor to two corporate groups in the areas of implementation of standards & processes and financial planning & analysis.

I am a member of the Mexican Institute of Finance Executives (IMEF), where I participate in three committees: Strategic Management, Entrepreneurship, and Competitiveness.
