Alacrity Mexico is a venture capital firm dedicated to finding, mentoring and growing innovative seed-stage technology companies based in Mexico City. The first capital fund, Alacrity Mexico – Canada Fund 1, closed in April 2018. Areas of focus for this Fund include enterprise communications and business applications, mobile integration, cross-platform media and business intelligence applications.
Global partnership, local development
Alacrity Mexico was created in association with Wesley Clover International, an investment management and holding company based in Canada that was founded by serial technology entrepreneur, Terry Matthews. The global Alacrity technology start-up ecosystem uses the proven Wesley Clover model for building new technology companies. That model has now been deployed in Canada, Wales UK, Lille France, Pune India, Istanbul Turkey and Mexico City. It is also being introduced into Singapore, Jakarta Indonesia, Vienna Austria and Shanghai China, and other locations are always under consideration.
The primary objective of Alacrity Mexico is to invest in idea-stage opportunities in the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry, working with talented entrepreneurs (Founders) to co-create new companies and develop them into long-term successes.
We focus these portfolio companies on the solutions identified as in demand by strategic partners – large technology vendors or service providers – who also commit to work with the companies from product/application concept through to market entry and growth. This partner network and customer-led model takes full advantage of experienced mentorship, established channels to market and specific client opportunities and relationships. Additionally, controlled access to existing Wesley Clover and Alacrity Global Intellectual Property elements can reduce time to market and accelerate revenue generation for the new companies.
Alacrity Mexico combines these assets and start-up experiences to provide its portfolio companies with a better than average chance of local and international success.
Talented entrepreneurial teams
Alacrity Mexico looks for high-potential technology entrepreneurs who are passionate about building next-generation Cloud and SaaS applications, IoT and Machine Learning solutions, as well as hardware for fixed and mobile communications, video collaboration, customer engagement, analytics and other industry-focused applications. We invest in experienced founders of such companies that are based in Mexico City and have visions to grow internationally.
