ESG Case Study: Simon-Kucher Empowers LATAM Startups

February 17, 2022


Only a month into the new year and our consultants have already been busy leading exciting pro bono activities. We partnered with MassChallenge Mexico, supporting innovative startups to help boost their economies and help their communities.

What is MassChallenge Mexico?

MassChallenge Mexico is part of MassChallenge, a global network that has been connecting experts, startups, corporations, and communities to help transform their economies for over 10 years.

While MassChallenge was founded in 2009, MassChallenge Mexico has been operating since 2016. In that time they have backed 167 startups without taking any equity. Among their alumni is Latin America’s first Crypto-UnicornBitso. This type of feat is made possible through the support they receive from their extensive network of experts and partners.

How did Simon-Kucher help?

  • We conducted several forums introducing B2B and B2C pricing to startups, covering methodologies, successful examples, and answering common questions
  • We dedicated time to help startups with specific business questions
  • We mentored different project teams, helping them in the whole process of reviewing and defining business strategies

“MassChallenge works with corporates and industry leaders to build and accelerate their innovation practices and drive business growth, which helps startups that are changing the world. Simon-Kucher & Partners’ contribution has impacted high potential startups across LATAM, increasing their visibility within their industries and with their customers.

“In today's business environment, professional advice is not always accessible. Through organizations like MassChallenge we can be part of the change by supporting meaningful ideas and businesses.”

Will Simon-Kucher work on similar projects in the future?

We are always striving to create a positive impact in our communities, as such we will continue to work with different change making organizations on a pro bono basis.
