MECATE is the international program of the Laboratory for Entrepreneurship and Transformation. We bring together entrepreneurs from all over the world so that, during the course of a week, they raise solutions fo problems within various social fields.
It is a platform to:
Create a permanent INTERNATIONAL NETWORK of transdisciplinary collaboration.
Develop high-impact SOCIAL INNOVATIVE PROPOSALS in Mexico.
Promote KNOWLEDGE EXCHANGE and the best practices in public entrepreneurship.
IDENTIFY public entrepreneurs that transform their communities.
‘Mecatl’, comes from Nahuatl, the Mexican language. It is a rope made of fibers from the agave plant, and is used to tie and hold together various objects.
In Mecate we link and weave several ideas in order to propose new and better solutions to social issues.
