The ability to work in close collaboration with U.S. partners, a robust commitment to software skills development, and a large and growing pool of talented engineers is combining to make Medellin a desirable partner for U.S. and global software and engineering product leaders.
In 2013, Medellin was voted as the most innovative city in the world, beating out fellow finalists New York City and Tel Aviv. This year it won the Lee Kuan Yew World City Prize, after a string of investments in urban development, technology and research, transportation, logistics, and education.
Since 2007, the Colombian government has been launching a variety of ICT programs to make the city ‘smarter’, creating an ecosystem of innovation to add value to products and services.
Some private institutions and government agencies are continuously holding workshops and programs as part of a government’s goal to provide digital literacy training to 10,000 people every year.
Join us for this very special webinar and find out more about what Medellin has to offer in the digital product space.
