Hey Carlos, I'm Mexican too, if you want to connect please do so, perhaps we can help each other.

My question is, How do you think the fund cut on innovation in MX is going to affect the software industry? (I want an insider opinion, its been a while since I left MX).

I think that the Software Industry will be growing slower as expected but It will be still growing.

Unfortunately Obrador's government is not focused in tech, but this statement is not true for state governments. Guadalajara is growing very fast in tech, it is called "The Mexican Silicon Valley", there are rumors of Google putting dev offices there. Monterrey (Where I am from) is investing a lot of money in IoT and Industry 4.0.

Maybe the federal government is not helping a lot but I think that there is a good amount of state support and private investment for México to keep growing in a decent way.
