“Several different agencies along with the team at Nearshore Americas have been very focused on delivering a premium, information-rich agenda that hits at the core of many of the questions senior sourcing decision-makers are asking these days,” said Kirk Laughlin, Founder and CEO, at Nearshore Americas.

Tier one IT giants like IBM, Dell, HP, Intel, Tata Consultancy Services and others have found a home in Mexico’s Jalisco state, drawn by its powerful mix of IT talent, world-class infrastructure and stable economics. Jalisco, in fact, boasts over 12 nationally-recognized universities, 12 technological universities and 14 technological institutes. These schools graduate more than 6,000 engineers a year, and many of those students walk out of their university environments as fully bilingual professionals.

The September 8th event is invitation-only. Nearshore Americas is reserving a small set of places for CIOs, CEOs, and global sourcing leaders who have a current and sincere interest in Mexico for professional services requirements and investment. Executives wishing to attend and meet the above-mentioned criteria should send a brief note to Kirk Laughlin, at:, with the subject line of “Request for Invitation: NYC Event.”

  • The IT sector in Mexico is mature and globally competitive. Because of its close proximity to the US, same time zone, and ease of travel American companies can more easily work with their IT teams in Mexico. The Government is highly motivated to increase their share of the tech industry, specially in Jalisco. North America is looking to Mexico as an alternative to India, but not only because the near-shoring economics work in the favor of U.S.-based companies, also because its emerging market of software engineers are focusing more and more on current technologies like mobile development and cloud based software.
    I'm glad that the Mexican government supports a lot of initiatives to grow the IT sector and create new markets.

  • The software engineering strengths in Mexico are surprisingly robust to first-time observers. Thanks for your great points Paulina.
