  • Description


    We are a group of young people seeking to implement an economically sustainable business model through cooperatives. We currently have 3 locally paid staff which are 2 for cleaning and 1 for maintenance in the Hospitality business. Our background is Technology. We have a Software Development consultancy and another business unit in the Real Estate & Hosting world. We want to make the Hospitality industry a social enterprise that injects capital into a social project in Oaxaca (where there is the greatest educational gap in the country). We want to help reduce the gap that is growing more and more now with the pandemic between the most who have and those who do not. Extreme poverty in Mexico unfortunately falls on the population of indigenous peoples and that is where we want to make an impact through university education. Unfortunately only 2% of indigenous students manage to finish a university degree in Mexico. We faithfully believe that education breaks this cycle of poverty. We want to make our hosting business a repeatable and scalable business model in order to help us with our cause. Profit are used to bring education tools in Oaxaca and to cover operations as well.

    Somos un grupo de jóvenes buscando implementar un modelo de negocios sustentable económicamente por medio de cooperativas. Nuestro background es de Tecnologias. Actualmente tenemos 3 empleados con sueldo que son 2 para limpieza y 1 para mantenimiento en el negocio de Hospedaje. Tenemos una consultoría de Desarrollo de Software y otra unidad de negocios en el mundo Inmobiliario & Hospedaje. Queremos hacer de la industria del Hospedaje una empresa social que inyecte capital a un proyecto social en Oaxaca (donde mas rezago educativo hay en el pais). Queremos ayudar a reducir la brecha que cada vez crece mas ahora con la pandemia entre el que mas tiene y el que no. La pobreza extrema en Mexico recae lamentablemente en la población de los pueblos originarios y es ahi donde queremos hacer el impacto por medio de educación en grado universitario. Lamentablemente solo el 2% de los estudiantes indígenas logran terminar una carreara universitaria en Mexico. Creemos fielmente que la educación rompe este ciclo de la pobreza. Queremos hacer de nuestro negocio de hospedaje un modelo de negocio repetible y escalable para poder ayudarnos con nuestra causa. Los ingresos se utilizaran para llevar herramientas de educación en Oaxaca y para cubrir gastos operacionales también.
