Crowdfundxmujeres (CrowdfunderMexico)

An online platform established to garner financing for businesses, CrowdfunderMexico first held an CrowdfundX event in Mexico in March 2014 to support women’s entrepreneurship, in partnership with the Women’s Council of Mexico and MUSEIC. Fifty women entrepreneurs attended and five finalists made presentations on their businesses. At the end, one startup was selected by a jury as the winner, obtaining funds during the investment round. CrowdfundX events are a series of online and offline events to increase visibility of entrepreneurs and educate investors on potential businesses. The CrowdfundX events start an approximately 90-day business acceleration process: startups compete for votes from the crowd, raise their profile with investors, and help inform investors on potential local deals.
