MileOne propels foreign direct investment with “Programa Acelera”

On March 25 MileOne launched the first generation of the Programa Acelera international business incubator cohort in partnership with Club de Exportadores from Michoacan, Mexico.

The program was developed in December of last year in order to provide Mexican agricultural and artisan goods providers from the Michoacan region a “soft” landing to export their business to Laredo.

As part of MileOne’s efforts to bolster foreign direct investment in the Laredo region, Programa Acelera came to life with the help of the Laredo Economic Development Corporation in conjunction with Club de Exportadores, a startup non-profit organization mobilizing Mexican companies to export goods and services to the U.S.
