Recommendations

Javier Mata recommended V+I where Mauricio is Co-Founder

Providing blind people of all ages with an affordable, flexible means of getting an education is well overdue. V+I are well under way to achieving this and deserve all the support available.

Francisco Ruiz Co-Founder at Ranktab recommended V+I where Mauricio is Co-Founder

Blind people deserve access to all knowledge available to the rest of humanity. It isn't too late to eliminate barriers and open paths to what's rightfully theirs. V+I is spearheading this effort and we should fully support them.

Jesus Hernandez recommended V+I where Mauricio is Co-Founder

In LATAM electronic readers might have a big impact on a population which rights are still uncertain in regards of accessing to all types of literature and in consequence the right to leave illiteracy.

This is a great device!

This is a beautiful design, which will improve the quality of life for hundreds of thousands worldwide. It is rare to see an innovation with no obvious drawbacks or costs to the environment.

Marco Antonio Liu Employee at Secretaría de Innovación, Ciencia y Tecnología recommended V+I where Mauricio is Co-Founder

The portable electronic Braille reader is a perfect solution to improve the educational level and the quality of life for blind people. The USP of the Braille reader is clear: it provides both a reading device and the literary material and follows a low cost high-quality extensive content strategy. There are already several demands from the industry for this special technology. We foresee high growth potential for the electronic Braille reader as it is accessible to everyone!

The value proposition is clear and the device is of value for an underserved population, still not clear how it will be delivered to the customers and I think some strategic partners related to the services for the blind (educational mainly) would make this twice as appealing! I forsee a great opportunity here.
