@PulsoConf 2013: New Date, Speakers Set … And Did We Mention a Discount?


Can’t wait for this year’s PulsoConf? You don’t have to – at least as long as originally planned. We’ve set the schedule, sponsors and speakers and finalized the dates. PulsoConf 2013 will take place on September 13th and 14th in Guadalajara, Mexico.

What You Can Expect

This second edition of PulsoConf will be held at the Guadalajara campus of the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education, Tec de Monterrey. One of Mexico’s top universities, it will provide an ideal setting for the event, fostering an atmosphere of academia, innovation and business.

As with last year’s Bogotá gathering (read all about it here), we’re again bringing in top-notch entrepreneurs, executives and investors from the U.S. and Latin America to address the PulsoConf audience. They’ll share their experiences and provide insights into the dynamic ecosystem of entrepreneurship and technology in the region and the world.
