As your Texas startup begins to scale, one of the most sensible regions to next look toward expansion is southward: Central and South America.  Four distinguished guests will provide examples to jumpstart your thinking on such new market opportunities.  Representatives from ACI Medellin will overview the thriving tech startup scene in that vibrant Colombian city.  TX/MX, a private business support group, will discuss how they assist entrepreneurs scaling in both directions across the Mexico-Texas border.  And Austin-Houston based re:3D will share their experience of launching their 3D printing company via Startup Chile back into the USA and worldwide.  A light Columbian lunch will follow the panel discussion, courtesy of ACI Medellin.
