Industry for entrepreneurs in Mexico is promising for 2016
Over the last 14 years, the capital industry for entrepreneurs in Mexico has grown at a steady pace, with 28% annual, and nowadays, there are 155 active finances that invest 38% of their resources in small and medium businesses, 30% in real estates, 20% in infrastructure, and 4% in entrepreneur’s capital.
Some investors usually thinks twice before they put their money on startups as they are more risky, as they have the highest percentage as non-viable, but, per Gerardo Herrera, Director of Communications for Risk Mathics, investors should take a chance with new businesses as they help creating more job sources and innovation for the country.
Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim, gave us his opinion about the entrepreneurs in Mexico:
Interviewer: Do you think investors must risk with the entrepreneurs who open new businesses?
Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal: Of course, entrepreneurs have always done incredible things for the country, some of them have started with an idea, and they now have some of the biggest companies in Mexico.
I: Do you think Mexico’s government supports entrepreneurs?
SJMV: I know there are programs in the country to support entrepreneurs who help them make their dream of establishing their own business come true.
A small enterprise tends to grow fast, which means their profits increase very quickly, they tend to create new markets, contrast with some of the big companies that are already established in a defined market.
Mexico counts with a program known as Inadem, which is intended to support entrepreneurs on the country, approving investment funds that are destined for startups.
“Mexico is awakening to private equity, organizations such as Inadem need to impulse more funds to support entrepreneurs in this country with a growing economy”, added Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal.
