After an evaluation process that included a feasibility study and a presentation to the evaluation committee of the National Institute of Entrepreneurship (INADEM), five incubators from Universidad del Valle de Mexico were recently recognized. The incubators at UVM’s campuses in Coyoacan, Hispano, Lomas Verdes, Nogales and Puebla all were recognized to exceed the requirements to join the "Business Incubator Network to Making a Better Mexico".
According to the official release, INADEM thanked UVM for their participation in this process, which was started "to create a strong and efficient network of business incubators that support entrepreneurs to create more competitive and innovative companies", as stated in the opinion.
Notably, Institutional Network of Business Incubators and UVM have 4 business centers at the Saltillo, Villahermosa, Hermosillo and San Rafael campuses and 4 business incubators in the Cumbres, Zapopan, Queretaro and Tlalpan campuses, all of which have been recognized by INADEM, and another 5 business incubators that were recently officially recognized by the INADEM and the Ministry of Economy.
The National Institute of Entrepreneurship was established in January 2013. It is a decentralized body of the Ministry of Economy, which aims to implement, execute and coordinate national policies and initiatives to support entrepreneurs, micro, small and medium enterprises, promoting innovation, competitiveness and projection into national and international markets to increase their contribution to economic development and social welfare.
For UVM and the Institutional Network of Business Incubators and Entrepreneurship, earning INADEM recognition represents a commitment to society to guide projects that have business potential and to young entrepreneurs who are looking to instill the entrepreneurship culture in Mexico’s classrooms.
