Mexico Industries Ventures

Entrepreneurship is at the heart of our company, and imbues all of the work we do.

What We Look For

Early-stage companies

We invest at the angel and seed level. We seek early-stage startups with a well-balanced team, a strong product and a clearly-defined opportunity. We’re unafraid of betting on bright teams whose future we can help shape.

Tackling niche industries

We generally look for companies that are attacking a highly specific market niche, in industries where our experience and network can be an asset – such as digital tech, digital marketing or luxury services, among others.

In scalable markets

What we look for above all else is an attractive, scalable business opportunity that addresses a market disparity in a novel way, with a product and executive team that we believe in, and can trust to deliver.

Our Approach

Analysis

We first take an analytical approach at the company's market, the competition, the business model, and the potential customer base. How can we best seize the opportunity? Key markers we look for: capital efficiency, underserved markets, fragmented competition, short sales cycles and a clear path to monetization and profitability.

Collaboration

We often co-invest with other funds, angels and family offices we have longstanding relationships with. We're a hands-on partner who will seek to bring others to the table as well. We are entrepreneurs first and investors second, and always seek to add value by leveraging our expertise, our network and the activities of our Advisory business to drum up new business.

Local Focus

Our regional focus is mainly in the Mexican market, because we believe firmly in Mexico's deep consumer market, macroeconomic health, and vast potential for growth. Our sophisticated private sector and massive consumer class entail a great opportunity for those who can bring to Mexico the sorts of innovations disrupting markets around the world.

Some emerging themes we're interested in

A world-class lifestyle to match our global savvy

Mexico's growing consumer class is aspiring to more. This new and discerning breed of digitally-savvy consumer increasingly demands world-class services to fit their new lifestyle expectations.

Digital technology simplifying our everyday

o The digital solutions other countries take for granted are taking flight in Mexico. Mobile & digital payments, eCommerce and digitally-enabled services are reducing the friction in our everyday lives.

The sharing economy gives us all a slice of the pie

Crowdfunding platforms and on-demand services are harnessing the initiative of everyday users to generate new revenue opportunities that benefit us all, with Mexico's 44 million smartphone users joining in.

Client and Partner Testimonials

“The team at Mexico Industries is proactive, insightful, and a pleasure to work with. When we opened our Mexico office, we worked with them in a business development capacity, seeking to close on a number of major infrastructure projects. Not only did they give us access to various companies in Mexico, but their efforts directly resulted in our firm signing a formal partnership with one of the largest construction materials companies in the world, opening vast new opportunities for us across the Americas.”

Luis Navas

CEO, Mecanotubo
“When we decided to expand our business beyond Spanish shores, our first choice was Mexico; we sought Mexico Industries for their expertise on the Mexican market, and to help us establish our initial client base. We were instantly impressed by the team’s technological vision and firm understanding of digital media, and have since partnered with them on a number of successful initiatives. They have become an indispensable partner for us, and we couldn’t be happier with our relationship with them.”

José Luis Navarro

Co-founder and CEO, inMedia Studio
“We are developing one of the largest landholding portfolios in the country, and brought Mexico Industries in to help us create an overarching strategy for this greenfield project across multiple verticals. They have given us extremely valuable insights on real estate and tourism development, digital technology, renewable energy and even winemaking. They have also brought a number of potential buyers, partners and investors to the table. They are excellent advisors, and over time became good friends.”
