IE in Practice — Gente Urgente

The “IE in Practice” is a new initiative that seeks to provide insights on the IE phenomenon through the eyes of international entrepreneurs. We will be featuring interviews with founders of startups that have international ambitions or are global.

We thank IE-Ambassador for Mexico, Prof. Sascha Fuerst (Tecnologico de Monterrey) for conducting the first IE in Practice Interview with Jose Enrique Alba Escamilla, the co-founder of Gente Urgente, a Mexico City-based startup providing B2B and B2C legal services.

The interview provides interesting insights on the motivations for early internationalization and the unique aspects of venturing in Latin America. Enjoy!
