The Survey on the Economic Impact Generated by COVID-19 by INEGI shows that in Mexico 93.2% of companies registered economic impacts during the COVID-19 pandemic . But, according to the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) , Mexico is the second best country to undertake in Latin America. That is why it is therefore essential to support startups and small entrepreneurs that sustain the economy of millions of people.

To this end, the Alliance for Central America and the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom launch the INNOVATE Entrepreneurship Program , an initiative that seeks to promote innovation, entrepreneurship and productivity in Central America and Mexico.
