Collaborating with the MIT Club of Mexico
The MIT Club of Mexico is composed of MIT alumni living in Mexico and MIT Mexican alumni abroad. The Club members share a passion for transforming Mexico and for solving critical issues in their communities. Acting as the exclusive Collaborator of the 2019 IIC Latin America, the Club expands the MIT mission of building a better world to the broader Latin American community.
Three Latin America Finalists are selected in each of the four IIC categories. The twelve Finalists travel to Mexico City for the IIC Latin America Celebration, where they pitch their solutions to an audience of entrepreneurs, investors, executives, and academics. Four Winners are chosen live at the event and each receive $20,000 and an all-expenses paid trip to MIT, where they vie to win the $250,000 Global Grand Prize in their category. The remaining eight Finalists are awarded $5,000 each.
