MONTERREY, MéXICO, November 11, 2021 / — On the last day of activities, INCmty, the entrepreneurship platform of Tec de Monterrey, focused on innovative solutions to improve people's quality of life and well-being through practices that promote human development and sustainability. Women’s voices played a predominant role through Maye Musk.

Joao Bocas, CEO of Digital Salutem, and David Albert, founder and CMO of AliveCor, explored in the fireside chat “The Future of Wearable Technology,” the potential of wearables in healthcare, delving further into the associated barriers and challenges. Thanks to the new smart technologies, a large amount of data can be collected then translated and interpreted to help doctors care for their patients' health. The current goal is to seek to reduce the costs of these devices to make them affordable for people with limited resources.

The fireside chat “How to draw strength to be reborn and fulfill your dreams,” we learned more about Maye Musk, the successful businesswoman and mother of Elon Musk, as well as outstanding trendsetter, dietitian, and model. She shared her life in a book, in particular the difficulties she faced as a bankrupt single mother. It was a demanding process, but when she saw people’s response she understood the importance of transmitting her message of personal fulfillment. Her childhood and adolescence in South Africa, her career as a model, and her constant struggle to achieve her goals have translated into a message of hope for women who are undergoing their own difficulties in their endeavor to find their path.

Sofía Pérez Gasque, National President of the Coordinating Council for Business Women, highlighted in her conference “Women as a fundamental part of Mexico’s economic reactivation” the primordial role women play in Mexico’s labor market and economy, which is essential for economic reactivation. This is because women are focused on helping their family circle and have demonstrated their resilience in recent years with the pandemic.

In the panel “Gaming: the future for generating jobs and revenues for the country,” Guillermo Vizcaíno, Head of Marketing and Public Relations at Lienzo, Jorge Lizárraga, CEO of Gaming Partners, and Mike Sorrenti, President of Game Pill, shared their perspectives on the future of the videogame industry, best practices, and future trends. The past few years have seen high levels of growth industry-wide, but all expectations were exceeded with the pandemic. The pressure that growing market demands are generating is such that the next generation is expected to be the one that will most play videogames in history.

In the panel “The implications of diversity and inclusion in organizational culture and education,” Roberto López A, Diversity and Inclusion Culture Leader at Walmart Mexico and Central America, Sonia Garza, National President of the Mexican Association of Women Businessowners (AMMJE), Inés Sáenz, Vice-President of Inclusion, Social Impact and Sustainability at Tecnológico de Monterrey, discussed the gradual process of cultural change that is taking place in many companies, and the importance of continuing to fight to achieve equity and inclusion, break paradigms, and seek an environment of diversity, thereby contributing to innovation.

In turn, the future requires a greater commitment to sustainability and the creation of technological solutions to enhance the development of society.
