The future… Entrpreneurship in Mexico

This is the second post from the event this week about web 2.0, new media and entrpreneurship in my hometown. The great thing I took from this event was the grounded view of the environment. The innovation was not just some pie in the sky but they wanted to challenge the audience for real. Something that I seldomly see on the FLOSS events, something to challenge the mind of the n00bs but also put it clear on paper. Tell them to be active and do something, the best idea at least on this event was a hack-a-ton which even if it fails producing a good generation of apps developers this weekend. But the point is that they tried and even if they end up frustrated it could encourage them to try again and shape their criteria moving forward.
So things about entrepreneurship in Mexico is that is not only about what happens in the US. You still have to fight bureacracy, bad infrastructure, and just not a place designed to build corporations. However those are the question that you usually seek answers about on these events and documenting the answers about these virtual organizations and constitutions.
The event in general still struggled to address about how to monetize in Mexico. How to move money around and also raise capital on the internet. Not much mentions of monetization models versus growth based companies.
