A new Technology Center of Excellence in Tijuana

TIJUANA, Mexico August 2, 2022 ITJ opened its new Technology Center of Excellence in Tijuana, Mexico. The state-of-the-art facility will be home to the next generation of digital talent in Baja California, contributing to the growth of California’s innovation economy.

Mexico’s Consulate in San Diego, the U.S. Consulate General in Tijuana, and Baja California State’s Secretariat of Economic Development and Innovation were among the guests. In addition, the World Trade Center San Diego, Tijuana EDC, San Diego EDC, U.S., and companies leading software development and biotech innovation in the region also attended the event. 

After achieving a company growth of 200%, folding its client base, and developing an efficient trainee program, ITJ is ready to boost efforts and continue empowering partners to deliver digital innovation that improves people’s lives. 

“We are blessed to be part of this thriving region. I am proud of our talented teams and thankful for our client’s trust during this time. This is a milestone for ITJ and our binational ecosystem,” said Maritza Diaz, ITJ’s CEO. 

The symbiosis between San Diego and Tijuana has been crucial to building a prominent mega-region and tech hub in the Life Sciences industry. To enable companies to become more competitive in mind, the new center integrates spaces for collaborative environments, scrum rooms, and more. The flexible workspaces, which occupy an entire floor, support a capacity of our employee target growth of 62% per year. The offices are fixed to encourage the creativity and efficiency of the team and support real-time collaboration with clients who leverage the location advantages of being 30 minutes driving distance from San Diego.

Diabates awareness month

ITJ celebrates Diabetes Awareness Month

Did you know that 1 out of 10 people around the world is living with Diabetes? According to the IDF Diabetes Atlas, diabetes prevalence continues to rise around the globe, reaffirming Diabetes as a significant worldwide threat to people’s health and well-being. It is for this reason that November is designated as Diabetes Awareness Month.

Diabetes puts people at risk for cardiovascular damage, limb and foot injuries, vision issues, and nerve damage from uncontrolled blood sugar. Adults with Diabetes make up more than four out of five (81%) of the world’s population, and Diabetes is responsible for 6.7 million deaths in 2021 – 1 every 5 seconds. 

ITJ joins Diabetes Awareness Month by celebrating the recent opening of a new Center of Excellence in Tijuana focused on developing a revolutionary medical device that aims to improve diabetes patients’ lives.   

It is essential to recognize the innovative projects happening on the other side of the border with the help of the nearshore digital talent. Especially in the healthcare and life sciences, U.S. companies can lean on a neighbor’s shoulder and grow their teams to meet their objectives.

Because of its rapid expansion, reduced cost of living, and closeness to San Diego, the South California software development industry has considered Tijuana a potential housing option. The latest World Bank Annual Ratings in the Ease of Doing Business shows that Mexico is the best ranked among Latin America and Caribbean nations. Cali Baja region remains a natural choice for many U.S. companies due to its proximity and market maturity. 

Nearshore services are a game-changer for organizations since they can expand their team, gain scalability, and stay competitive. The history of the medical device industry in the Cali Baja region is characterized by sustained growth and increased learning, rising as one of the most important technology hubs in Mexico and Latin America.
