Mexico-United States Entrepreneurship and Innovation Council

Over the last 20 years, the United States, Mexico and Canada have established one of the most competitive and successful economic platforms in the world. We have created a dynamic economic environment that engenders openness, innovation, and cooperation. This partnership has established the foundation that allows our countries to be market leaders in an increasingly competitive global economy and ensure our mutual prosperity. The power of geography is helping the U.S. and Mexico shorten our supply chains, reduce risk in product design and production, and speed up the time it takes to bring a new product to market. This gives us, and North America as a whole, a critical advantage to out-compete other regions in an increasingly competitive global innovation economy. To maintain that competitive edge, the Mexico-U.S. Entrepreneurship and Innovation Council (MUSEIC) is working to promote and strengthen the cross-border design and innovation system to complement our cross-border production system.


MUSEIC has seven subcommittees to advance the pillars that make up the Council’s Mission:

  • Providing a legal framework that encourages innovative entrepreneurship;
  • Promoting women entrepreneurship;
  • Engaging entrepreneurs among the Latin American diaspora residing in the United States;
  • Promoting and integrating the infrastructure supporting entrepreneurs and Small and Medium Enterprises;
  • Sharing expertise and best practices to develop regional innovation clusters and marketing chains;
  • Exchanging best practices on technology commercialization;
  • Sharing tools and best practices on financing and promoting innovative and high-impact entrepreneurship.


The Council is comprised of 24 leaders in the high-impact entrepreneurship field, 12 from each country, and include representatives from government, academia, NGOs, the private sector, business accelerators and angel/venture capital funds, among others. Additional organizations are represented on the Council’s seven subcommittees.
