Our DNA

Campuslink is a 100% free event; designed to inspire our students, while they learn about technology and innovation.

BRIEF HISTORY

In 2010, we found a lack of IT + Innovation events, focussed on the universitary communities in Mexico. We asked our stakeholders and partners to gather talents in order to create a top-quality, yet 100% free to attend event. In 2014 Campuslink went binational, by being the technology event as a part of the massive and polifacetic "Tijuana Innovadora" biannual event. After 5 editions, 2 countries, 6 states, 2 cities, 60 universities, 80 inspiring keynotes, 12000 atendees, 4 hackathons, 1600 programmers, 6 expert panels, 16 workshops, great prizes, countless pizzas, lots of coffee...

Campuslink has positioned itself as the first interuniversitary space for technology, innovation and digital culture.

THE TEAM

Since 2011, every year we have made it possible for:

  • 17000 students.
  • 6 cities.
  • 2 countries.
