About MITA

MITA Ventures combines a venture fund with a strategic mentoring program to invest in disruptive tech innovation in Mexico. We draw on our deep networks in Silicon Valley and Mexico to empower the most promising new tech companies from Mexico which have a global vision — as  well as bring innovation from successful companies from the US and Latin American looking to expand into the high-growth market potential in Mexico. Based in San Francisco, CA, Mexico City and Punta Mita, Mexico, MITA works to foster cross-cultural opportunities in tech innovation.
Our objectives for MITA (MITA Institute and Tech Accelerator) are ambitious – to create a close alliance between Silicon Valley and Mexico’s startup communities and to establish Mexico as an innovation bridge between Latin America and more developed markets. We believe that Mexico, as a country, will benefit greatly from an economy led by tech innovation.
