About EarthX

EarthX is an international environmental organization that connects a global community to create a sustainable world for all life and future generations. In this event companies and assistants with environmental awareness will meet to have fun learning on conservation and sustainable solutions.

For the first time in 8 years, EarthX leaves Dallas, Texas. Earthx Mexico will take place in November 9th to 11th in Casa del Lago (Lake House) of the Chapultepec Forest. The Chapultepec Forest is one of the most important natural areas of Mexico City.

Its location is ideal, since it is in the heart of the Mexican capital where the most important companies in the country are located. And next to one of the most emblematic avenues in the world, “El Paseo de la Reforma”.

Reforma, in order to activate economic development in the last ten years has become the preferred area to build sustainable and high technology towers, like Mayor Tower, BBVA Tower, Reforma Tower, Diana Tower, New York Life Tower, Mapfre Tower and Reforma Latino Tower. Apparently, to activate the economy a skyscraper must be named “Tower”:thinking:.

The urban forest Chapultepec (which is nahuatl for grasshopper hill) houses a zoo, museums, lakes, cinemas, hotels, restaurants and even a castle!

EarthX Mexico will consist of an expo with business which will offer technological products (in which the SmartCash Booth may be) and nongovernmental organizations, an hackathon, conferences and a movie festival.

This is the official website of the event: https://www.earthxmexico.org 

It is expected the participation of over 100 Non-governmental organizations, 100 bussiness exhibitors, 33 movies, 120 speakers (including oceanographic explorer Jean Michel Cousteau, Greenpeace Sea Shepard Paul Watson and Nobel Peace Prize Dr. Rajendra K. Pachauri) and over 30,000 assistants.

This makes the EarthX Mexico Expo a great opportunity to present SmartCash to business owners and their customers. We would connect with a new audience: Non-governmental organizations that could use SmartCash in their efforts, as a method for fundraising.

Who am I?

I am Erika Montes de oca. I am a chemist who owns an Environmental Health and Safety retail. I have been an entrepreneur for eight years now. I have been in many business associations so I consider myself as a professional networker.

I am a crypto user, that’s why I was was an attendant to Talent Land, where met SmartCash for the first time. A  couple of months later, I talked about how to implement it in my business with @AlanisHec.  That is why I joined his staff in the event #666 Mexico City digital business summit Expo PYME.

I know the problems among the available payment methods for business owners in Mexico, so I am sure they will be interested in adopting SmartCash.

    ErikaM 10/21/2018 16:23

    What would you ask?

    Lord_Gabo 10/23/2018 09:38

    Maybe with some questions from 1 to 10 rate i.e. "Do you think Smartcash is useful?" or with open answers like "Have you never head about SmartCash before?" "What do you think is the strong point of Smartcash? Something like that
