Show others that at the heart of our city beats the innovative, hard-working energy of its citizens!

The first event brought together a diverse mix

and active participants, producing a dynamic

of participants from the private sector, the

redefinition of goals and focus, sensitive to the

Federal, State and Municipal governments,

conditions of the region and its residents.

We motivated people from far beyond our borders to look into exactly what was taking place in Tijuana. Many different groups, organizations and projects began to spring up and were supported within this social context, looking to construct and rebuild social relations, generate economic development, and encourage and disseminate values, while promoting a regional sense of calling. Other supported projects focused on collaborative projects based on principles of mutual support and the thoughtful appropriation of public areas. Tijuana Innovadora also continued its search for innovative, participant-promoted projects in the areas of science industry, art and culture; some of these with governmental participation. In 2012, in this our second Tijuana Innovadora event, we sought to complement and enrich the original concept. The volunteer coordinators presented their proposals and Tijuana Innovadora set out three objectives: to strengthen binational relations; to stimulate the creation of new and innovative vocations; and to continue sharing the experience and methodology acquired collectively by Tijuana Innovadora. This was all of this had to be done under the one working principle: Advancing Tijuana toward greatness. 7

These are the fruits of these efforts.





Discipline is the soul of an army. It makes small numbers formidable; procures success to the weak, and esteem to all. - George Washington.


The Tijuana Innovadora organization would like to collectively invite all those interested to find out what’s happening within our various committees and be brought up-to-date on our project schedule, as well as to exchange information relating to the activities and achievements of innovators from the Tijuana/San Diego region. We meet every Wednesday from 8:00 - 9:00 am at National Chamber of Commerce (CANACO) building in the Tijuana’s Zona Río area and also have periodic meetings in the U.S. The doors to the Agora, as we affectionately refer to it, are always open to anyone who is curious or interested in joining the Tijuana Innovadora Movement, as long as they join us in a rousing “Yes we can!”






he greatest example of Tijuana Innovadora achievements, and what we are

most proud of, has been the volunteer work of businessmen and women, professionals, academics and students; hundreds of men and women from all walks of economic, social, educational and cultural life, who willingly and willfully responded to the crisis situation our city was going through, consequently renewing community spirit within the region and enriching the meaning of the term “social responsibility� in the process.


What is the best example of TI and what we pride ourselves on? It is precisely these efforts that have sustained the strength and progress of the Tijuana Innovadora movement. The crisis has passed; however, the challenges facing our city are many. It is essential that we, as members of our community, be actively involved in organized efforts that transcend our day-to-day responsibilities, convinced that our grain of salt is beneficial and indeed vital, a reflection of our humanitarian spirit; this notwithstanding the fact that one invariably receives more than he or she gives, as this is truly stimulating work, where one makes many new friends and has a wonderful time in the process.

EDUCATION Good grades do not guarantee a good job. Critical thinking and collaboration is what we need our youth to learn. - Javier Firpo, Khan Academy.

Latin America is generating, participating and contributing 3.5% of the world’s knowledge, the United States contributes 25%, and China collaborates with 17%. These numbers are proportional to the development of those regions and show the close correlation between knowledge and the evolution of societies. - Enrique Villa, Conacyt.

MEDICAL EXCELLENCE At the UABC (Autonomous University of Baja California) there are avenues of research projects in the areas of diabetes and hypertension. Drug and HIV problems are being addressed on a bi-national level. Advancements are also being made in the treatment of diabetic ulcers with silver nano-particles.

Genomics, through sciences such as molecular biology, biochemistry or computer science, among many other fields of research, allows us to foresee the behavior of, and ways of treating, diverse illnesses...Baja California is an ideal place for the development of biotechnology.

- Alfredo Renán, UABC.

- Albert Zlotnik, UC Irvine.

...this border is also the home to the ATLS and ACLS courses for medical graduates –or those about to graduate- and physicians, and it’s practiced in the best local hospitals; this results in Tijuana having the best hospitals, with physicians who are board certified and recertified up to four times, and therefore, the quality of the service is the most suitable. - Rigoberto Pallares Aceves, Hospital Ángeles Tijuana.

If we join robotics, the diagnostic capability, bionics, genome medicine, and progenitor cells, and we align them effectively, we are talking about reaching one hundred years of life expectancy within the next ten years. - Salomon Chertorivski, Ministry of Health.

METROPOLITAN DEVELOPMENT PLAN the past, Rosarito belonged to the Municipality of Tijuana, and now that it has become a municipality, it reintegrates itself, but now, within this innovative greater metropolitan area.

The concept of city has seen a broadening of meaning to include economic, social and cultural perspectives.

- Raúl Islas Espinoza, CDR.

- Rafael Pérez Fernández, IBERO.

...a metropolis such as Tijuana merits long-term planning.

...we must continue working, so as to not put future generations at risk.

- Humberto Jaramillo, CDT.

- José Manuel Jasso, CCET.

Within the Strategic Metropolitan Plan, the three cities, Tijuana, Tecate and Playas de Rosarito, will no longer be independent, though they will conserve their own identity.

...of the 56 metropolitan areas that exist in this country, the area encompassing Tijuana, Playas de Rosarito, and Tecate occupies the 6th spot nationally in terms of economic development; and registers 21st within Latin America.

- Sergio Montes Montoya, B.C.

- Rodolfo Argote, IMPLAN.

The strategies...include generating means for the economic growth, project evaluation and follow-up with the development teams that are working on the plans, and seeking financial alternatives in response to these actions. - Daniel Rubio, IMPLAN.

Without a doubt, this magnificent coordination between artists, the state, and the activism of a non-forprofit organization (Tijuana Innovadora) can be considered the social application of Relational Aesthetics, as formulated by Nicolas Bourriaud, but above all, this is symptomatic of the multiple relationships that make up the social, cultural and political fabric of a city like Tijuana.

Ciudad Habla (City Speaks)

- Eduardo Egea, Arte al Día.

Tijuana Innovadora, in coordination the public art collective Arte Público Reacciona Tijuana, created the Ciudad Habla project as a part of the renewal and continuity process of the “Con Amor a Tijuana” (To Tijuana, with Love) project created by the Tijuana Image Committee founded by Jose Galicot. With the participation of local citizens, in addition to artists such as Once Cero Dos, Mode Orozco, Spell, Pablo Vega, and Shente Elizondo, and also, students and graduates of the UABC’s Faculty of Arts, images were captured reflecting the feelings of those who pass through the San Ysidro Border checkpoint. To date, work has been undertaken on walls located under the bridge a few meters away from the México border crossing when entering by car from San Ysidro and in two more places along the area between the pedestrian walkway and the Sentri Lane as you approach the US border crossing on your way out. 103

he 2012 Closing Ceremony was a mandate from TI 2010. After Pa’Bailar Tijuana, the pub-

lic in attendance called for an event that would allow the people of Tijuana and visitors alike to continue celebrating our city. We prepared a program with Hernán del Riego that would include a performance of Tijuana’s DO RE MI Comunidad youth orchestra together with the Baja California Orchestra under the direction of Garcia Barrios, plus a review of our most popular events, performances by Azul Monraz, Effectronix, Pa’Bailar Tijuana with Lux Boreal, and La Ballena de Jonas, a message from our founder, Jose Galicot, and as our finale, performances by Nortec, Bostitch & Fussible; all of them, proudly, Tijuana artists.

the Tijuana Innovadora Movement lies in the fact that diverse areas of society, with distinct individual interests, joined collectively to discover the power of supportive nexus for the greater common good. In its infancy, the Movement had to learn and

Tijuana plans conference to boost biz By TIERNEY PLUMB, The Daily Transcript Thursday, August 16, 2012 Article


San Diegans are invited to Tijuana’s massive-sized housewarming party this fall to potentially open up lines of business, culture and communication. Tijuana Innovadora, which will take place Oct. 11 to 21, aims to educate San Diegans and the world about what Tijuana has to offer. The event showcases innovation occurring in the region in such industries as automotive, aerospace, clean tech, electronics and medical devices, as well as strategic design, mass media and cinematography. Only 9 percent of San Diegans currently think Tijuana is important for them, and conference founder Jose Galicot wants to raise that figure. “This is not a tourist program,” he said. “We want two neighbors to know each other.” Some of the best minds in the world will flock south of the border to shed a light on Tijuana's leading — yet widely unknown — role in manufacturing and exporting. Confirmed speakers include Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL); entrepreneur Blake Mycoskie of Toms Shoes; Nobel laureate Ada Yonath; Richard Florida, bestselling author; and Emilio Azcárraga, who heads the largest media network in Latin America. Galicot gave an overview of the event at a press conference Aug. 14 at the Mingei Museum.

RELATED SPECIAL REPORTS International Business

“The first time we did it we were trying to make a noise so people will look around and see what is happening in Tijuana,” he said, referring to the inaugural Tijuana Innovadora held in 2010. This time, he said, planners are bringing in more educators, engineers, architects and artists from all over the world. Other notable expected attendees include New Delhi powerhouse Anand Mahindra, who heads 100 companies; Philippe Cousteau Jr., grandson of undersea explorer Jacques Cousteau; and Earl Anthony Wayne, the U.S. ambassador to Mexico. A goal is to educate outsiders on what Tijuana is doing and making in its factories every day, ranging from TVs to telecommunications equipment for airports and astronauts to heart pacemakers. “Tijuana is exporting $85 million a day in technology. We have 50 years of quality products that we make for the world,” Galicot said. Tickets cost $35 for a half day, including keynote addresses and panels, or $70 for a full day. The event also includes an expo to showcase small businesses on both sides of the border, as well as dozens of workshops. Planners are expecting about 50,000 Americans to attend, with an additional 5,000 from other countries. When the conference was last held in 2010, there were about 30,000 people north of the border who attended, according to event organizers. Round-trip transit to and from San Diego is being offered for $15. Starting Sept. 1, downtown San Diego will be sprinkled with banners publicizing the event. There will be about 80 banners in the Gaslamp area, including along Market Street. The San Diego region has 3 million people, compared to Tijuana’s 2 million. “We have more engineers in Tijuana than in San Diego. We can make a difference together and create more businesses and more ideas,” Galicot said. He said 2,000 volunteers are on board to help orchestrate the event and drive down costs. The event will also highlight Tijuana’s fashion industry, with an international “InnovaModa” fashion show Oct. 14. Locally-based designers will include Louis Verdad, who has designed for Madonna and other entertainers, and Ximena Valero, who once designed for Victoria’s Secret. Chefs from Tijuana and San Diego, including Food Network star and San Diego resident Marcela Valladolid, will whip up their best dishes during a culinary battle Oct. 13 at the Tijuana Grand Hotel.
