Where do we live in? We live in a world where business is all about keeping people alive. No matter where you are, business is the key to survival. It applies to countries too. When we are talking about country and business, China and India may be the most progressive in their economies. Although we may say that India is a developing country. In another continent, talking about Macroeconomics, countries like Mexico are now great as there have been so many startups developments and maintain their good development in the business world.

The way to survive in this world is through business, but how can one start their own business? Being creative and innovative is a must in the business world. Mexico has worked hard to trigger their youngsters to be creative and innovative. The key is to believe in your dreams and focus in making the world better. Being innovative and trying to follow in the steps of start-up and innovation leaders like for example, a man powering innovation in Mexico, Pepe Kamel. Who is he? How can he contribute so much to powering innovation in Mexico and how is he changing Mexico’s face in the start-up scene?

José Eduardo Kamel Elias, better known as Pepe Kamel, was born in 1987. He studied high school in the American School Foundation in Mexico City and the American Overseas school of Rome in Rome, Italy. He then went to Austin, Texas for his university studies where he obtained his degree on Entrepreneurship from St. Edward’s University, same place where he started his first start-ups such as a nationwide online university book store and a refurbished consumer electronics company with customers across the globe. He is a self-taught software developer, digital strategist, and lean finance expert. Kamel is currently the founder and CEO of Metric Impact Group, an innovation-oriented conglomerate that includes a powerful incubator for start-ups that advises and partners with start-ups during early and growth stages. Pepe Kamel is probably the youngest CEO that has been involved in more than 20 start-ups in Mexico and the USA at such a young age. He founded Metric Impact in 2012 when he was only 25 years old. His education history could lead us into some sense and explain how he made such great leaps in the business world, but it probably also has to do with his personality. Kamel is now a true believer and promoter of Mexican Metric Impact talent, innovation and start-ups. He believes that through Metric Impact, he will empower talented people and guide them in the transformation of ideas into great businesses.

Metric Impact has contributed in the tech start-up scene in Mexico by building the foundations of a favorable entrepreneurial ecosystem in Mexico. When you have a good, innovative and scalable idea, but you don’t know how or where to start, you may want to visit Metric Impact’s “MI incubadora” and pitch your idea to them and with some luck your start-up will be accepted and you will be advised and guided to make your start-up a success.
