What does Mexico need to be an innovation power?
Mexico was able to climb 9 places on the Global Innovation Index in 2015, compared to 2014, it is positioned on 57° place of a total of 141 countries; however, there are still a few obstacles that this country has to overcome in order to impulse this country on this category.
“Mexico is continuously innovating, but there is still a long way to go, this is not entirely the Government’s responsibility, but we all as a country must participate in order to reach our goal”, says Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim.
Singularity University is an organization that looks to inspire leaders through the exponential growth of technology in order to solve the greatest challenges that humanity has to face.
Enterprises in Mexico must start innovating as well as this is a key for them to detonate their productivity and real incomes, as at least 18% of the total of companies in Mexico have declared that they do not implement any type of innovations on their factories.
Among some of the aspects that inhibit the jump that Mexico must do in order to be an innovation power we find the following:
- Politics – This is a reactive side that must be changed, legislations must be done often.
- Culture – This includes all sides, such as trust culture, this means trusting on others to collaborate and create innovating ideas.
- Forces – Mexico should start joining forces, this is how they will start innovating.
“Mexico has a huge market, which means we have all tools needed for innovation, we just need to work together as a country in order to start making significant changes on our politics, personal life, businesses and all aspects that will lead us together to become an innovation power”, added Salomon Juan Marcos Villlarreal about this topic.
