inspired by jim kim and other frabscican cultures- especially how paulo frier methonds have linked much of the bottom up gilrd empowerment world including bangladesh
there are a lot of paradoxes
while the iadb runs a city as socila innovation summit that features amazing latin amwerican youth entrepreneurs its hard to connecvt with erst of yera unless you are in-circles
then agikan note below suggest city like mexico is far behind
even when latin americans ar also priminent in unhabotat secretariat
the connections of managers at world bank never really live up to the first yera of take it on chalenges jim kim and pope francis celebrated'poeru and columbia started a year rounnd yabt engtrepreneur comoetition whose main winners are featired the day befiore the triannaial americas eladership summit
but noe of this really cone together- its realy hard to find out if finbtech modelas are scaling anywhere in latin america tghe way they are in bangalls, china and india
THE SHAME OF LATIN MICROCREDIT
Lynne Pateerson's work excluded, the accion IPO was a disgrace of mexico's leading microcredit; the failure between 2010-2102 to live up to queen sofia's challenge to tyry kenya's jamii bora in all major latin am slum cities was tragic- kenya was the lab for ;linking all sorts of youth tech incluidng mpesa, ihub etc; leadership politicains seem still to be in landownmers pockets- i cant understand how little brazil mad e of a chnace in world stage (world cup and olumpics) - i have known some rio favela hubs since 2010 and the city actually ended up getting worse; latin america desperately needs some share infrastructire mpping - while china could be a very usefull freind if politicains chnage every 2 yeras and cant set up an agreed mapping process well the truth is chna has much better sme opportunities much closer to home- it still would welome long term radees on crips and mineral reseiarces from this contient but where's the youth development model deeper than that if latin americans cant collaobirate- i desperately hope i am missing something but in every other region worldrecordjobs.com has at e;last found some alumni netwporks that youth could best first social trip advide to - not yet latinam
fintech is so deperately needed so that youth can start creating gteir own livelihood in latin america nopt get traped in heartbreaking stories of travelling up through tghe contient to cross the border
americans also are not well informed - latinos will be the majority race mid 2030s in all probability- they are much of the sevice indusyry in america and desrve far better lifetime opportunities whilst drug nd other border issues dont get sorted out by ;loud mouthed politiocains
===i was trealy hoping argentina g20 would match china g20 as a great solution time but a montyh away - writing early october 2018 - losing hope -please tell me if youi see where to connect firstname.lastname@example.org
the argentina g20 has been incredibly hard to connect with
ultimately in trum's dc there is so much sdistrist between latin am clountreis and those associations hq'd in dc that are supposed to help

How Can Mexico Become More Innovative?
According to the OECD, Mexico ranks last in virtually all measures of innovation. Whether it’s R&D funding, patents, venture capitalists, or a climate of entrepreneurship, the country is far behind the rest of the industrialized world. Although Mexico has a growing innovation sector and pockets of start-up companies around the country, there is still a large gap compared to the rest of the industrialized world.
