Tijuana Develops Tech Startup Scene

Tijuana Develops Tech Startup Scene

Dec 11, 2017

Tijuana has a few important things going for it; things like affordable housing, a skilled technology workforce and close proximity to the world’s busiest border crossing. All of these ingredients are key for cities trying to become hot tech startup scenes, but Tijuana is missing the most important ingredient: tech startups.

“The border’s tech startup scene is still stuck in its infancy,” Kinsee Morlan reports. There have been a couple of near misses; companies that moved to Tijuana or started up there, but so far they’ve failed to generate any significant products. “What we need is an Angry Birds to come out of our binational region,” one tech entrepreneur told Morlan.

In the meantime, local groups are working on networking and connecting tech companies with customers, and small software companies are focused on showing customers the benefits of hiring Mexican software engineers.
