Bill Richardson, former New Mexico governor and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, recently penned a column for Wired magazine touting Mexico’s tech sector. Specifically, in “Startups Can Escape Their Cash Crunch by Going to Mexico,” Richardson recounts how Guadalajara and the state of Jalisco have given rise to a startup culture full of “tech-hungry venture capitalists, business advocacy organizations, hundreds of bilingual high-tech graduates joining the workforce each year, and sound telecommunications infrastructure.” Given his ties to crafting the 1990’s trade agreement that helped this boom take shape, he is proud to see what has developed. “For those of us who had the little guy in mind when we were negotiating NAFTA,” writes Richardson, “this is a dream come true.”
