She pointed out that in addition to supporting the creation of new technological products, the FYI also intends to build a foundation from an innovation perspective that offers competitive advantages both for the region and for the Yucatecans and the firms that settle in our territory.
She highlighted that continuing with the efforts of the state administration to promote the culture of entrepreneurship, after implementing the initiative, the best evaluated projects will be selected to participate in the Fund for Entrepreneurs of Yucatan (Fondey), and will be considered for other national or international financing of greater scope and with impact on the productive sector.
Fosado Santamaría also stated that the projects could range on various topics from innovation, such as agro-industry, biotechnology, information technology, tourism, health and construction, which underpins these economic sectors of the state.
