Dear first time Founder,

Managing Partner at Botware

Basically everything I wish I had access to when I was starting my first software startup, is what I am trying to build Botware into now – for all future entrepreneurs, and for the love of startups. Our mission is to offer first time founders ALL financial, strategic, and technological help they need to build their profitable startup. As the first pre-seed Micro-VC for first time tech-founders based in Monterrey, México, we want to be part of the solution to the lack of resources for our brightest minds in our country and a drive for global innovation 🚀
