A total of 15 teams of students from various educational institutions in Mexico have been selected to participate in '30Segundos x México' , a public entrepreneurship initiative launched by AT&T Mexico in alliance with the Entrepreneurship and Transformation Laboratory (LET) of Tec de Monterrey .

Through two exclusive entrepreneurship and innovation programs offered by these organizations, students will be able to develop their ideas in order to promote urban inclusion.

During the call period, the students presented proposals that incorporate technology as a basis to generate a social impact and achieve more inclusive cities in Mexico. Among the requirements, students were asked to record a 30-second video explaining their proposal and upload it to the initiative's website before February 19, 2021.

The proposals received were reviewed and evaluated based on criteria of impact, innovation, application of technology and scalability.
