Mexico-US Entrepreneurship and Innovation Council (MUSEIC)
MUSEIC seeks to develop an ecosystem of entrepreneurship and innovation using programs for binational cooperation, through joint initiatives to promote the creation and growth of micro, small and medium innovative companies, harnessing the potential of universities and research centers to become relevant actors in these processes.
This Council is made up of entrepreneur ecosystem participants from both countries, and includes representatives from government, academic and business establishments, NGOs, venture capital funds and others. In Mexico, MUSEIC is headed by the National Institute of Entrepreneurship (INADEM) and in the United States by the Department of State.
Subcommittee on Technology Commercialization
FUMEC chairs jointly with the National Council for Science and Technology (CONACYT) the Subcommittee on Technology Commercialization at MUSEIC. The Foundation leads the efforts in the United States and CONACYT in Mexico. This Subcommittee has identified a number of actions to promote high impact entrepreneurship and innovation initiatives. In this Subcommittee, FUMEC works on the two initiatives described below.
- Intelligent Manufacturing Initiative (IMI): This will help identify needs and technological trends in Mexican and American companies along the border, to facilitate the incorporation of intelligent manufacturing and increase efficiency.
- Innovation Corps (I-Corps) Initiative: This initiative seeks to take advantage of the model I-Corps, created by the US National Science Foundation (NSF) and bring it to Mexico, in order to support university researchers to commercialize the fruits of their research to create high-technology enterprises.
