Reuters details how fearful Mexican tech startups shunning spotlight

Reuters took readers on a deep dive into how in Mexico’s burgeoning startup scene, publicity is the last thing many entrepreneurs want. Fear of attracting criminals means that unlike plenty of their P.R.-hungry counterparts in Silicon Valley, Mexican startup founders often decline interviews, avoid announcements and suppress details of financial success. Though understandable, the low-profile approach is holding back Mexico’s technology industry, investors and experts say, making it harder to attract talent and money, especially from abroad.
