Join us for the Graduation of the latest Mexico City cohort, where you can see inspiring talks by Adolfo Babatz (CEO, Clip), along with a few “debut” presentations from new Alumni. Learn about some of the pre-seed companies that will go onto seed-accelerators, raise funding, and build the next great Mexico City startups. There will also be an opportunity to network with other entrepreneurs and celebrate the new Graduates.
Adolfo Babatz was always determined to start his own company. Born and raised in Mexico City, Adolfo earned his undergraduate degree from ITAM and went on to receive a degree in Business from MIT’s Sloan School of Management. Soon after, he worked at PayPal, rising to become their #3 employee for the Latin American region. While at PayPal, Adolfo met Vilash Poovala, with whom he would later found Clip. Clip is the fastest, safest, and most complete monetization solution for businesses in Mexico. Its integrated hardware and software enables businesses (and online platforms) to accept payments by credit or debit cards for the entire transaction or in installments, no matter the size of the operation. After their recent $250 million funding round, Clip has a valuation of nearly $2 billion.
