MITA (Mita Institute and Tech Accelerator) is gearing up for TechTalks 2013, with the announcement of key speakers and online conference registration. From November 18-21, in Punta Mita, Mexico, this acclaimed annual event brings together Silicon Valley luminaries with Mexico’s Tech startup ecosystem.
Marquee speakers this year include Mike Maples (Floodgate), Chris Kelly (Facebook founding team/Angel investor), Jeff Schumacher (Booz Digital Global Managing Director), David Weekly (Facebooks’ Internet.org initiative director), Wendell Brown (serial inventor/entrepreneur: LiveOpps, Teleo, eVoice), and Ariel Poler (IPRO founder, mentor, investor) – among over 30 stellar speakers and panelists.
The MITA TechTalks 2013, in partnership alliance with Endeavor Mexico and the Aspen Institute Network of Development Entrepreneurs Mexico, examines the economic, technology and cultural trends impacting tech innovation in Latin America – the foreign region closest to Silicon Valley. The location of the MITA TechTalks, along Mexico’s Pacific Coast is strategic, as Punta Mita is a second home to many tech and venture capital industry leaders from the U.S. and Canada, with direct airlift to San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Dallas, Houston and Denver.
