Some of the best moments of Nearshore Nexus ’13 happened on the fly – during networking breaks, on the way to sessions, in hallways, at lunch or during our closing “Nexus After Dark” reception. Our team has gathered the best photos from those moments here in one album on our Facebook page – take a look and recall the great memories!
We’re extremely proud to be putting the final touches on the Third Annual Nearshore Nexus conference – where more than two dozen carefully selected speakers, an all-star collection of 18 sponsors (we’re at capacity on sponsorship) and business representatives from some of the biggest names in the Fortune 1000 will join us for robust debates on the most important trends in services, innovation and Latin America market expansion.

The ranking, which is the result of a five-month nomination and review process, strives to bring to light the spark and inspiration that powers the Nearshore business community. The list is remarkable for several reasons.

When they flew to the Caribbean islands back in 2004, the founders of Columbus Communications had only a few million dollars in the bank. But in the world of telecoms (an industry renowned for mega-wealth, think Carlos Slim, and mega-losers like Bernie Ebbers), fortunes can be created in surprisingly short periods of time. Fast forward nearly eight years and Columbus is a carrier that is flying high across the Caribbean and now into Central America. Just about every telecom carrier in the region is a client and Columbus is now worth an estimated $2 billion.

For four years in a row, the U.S. has declined in global competitiveness rankings. The decline is part of a larger problem that many U.S. business leaders are increasingly worried about: If Washington can’t work out its problems how can I as a business leader find innovative human capital and technology solutions to make my business more competitive?

For households in Latin America, nothing is more important than food rituals. Coffee is one of their favorite beverage and it wakes them up every morning. The region is home to a large number of coffee planters, and also roasters who reach the coffee to the doorstep of consumers around the world.
Most of North America sees coffee as an energy booster and a way to get in as much caffeine in as short of a time as possible.
