Mexico collaborative economy, the dance ends

Mexico is the region with the most potential in the field of collaborative economy in Latin America. Analyze their advantages and strengths.

It is worldwide and is here to stay. The mysteries of the collaborative economy are no longer a secret to anyone, but that does not exempt this type of new source of income, and headaches, to be the subject of study . Getting all the attention and mentions the environment more financial tradition, the most amazed by the magnitude of the figures handled this sector. Especially when 64% of these businesses have the ability to create employment-at least 10 workers each -.

By size and technological maturity, Mexico and Brazil are the Latin American markets with more collaborative economy with a volume of millions of dollars circulating throughout the year, and increasing since this type of activity has been promoted, the idea is to double or even more -. the figures achieved to date

in Latin America, by market size and technological maturity , countries that stand out in this collaborative system are Brazil and Mexico, followed closely by Peru and Argentina.

However, we still have a number of challenges to face, mainly in Mexico, geography before us at this time. According to the latest study Collaborative Economy in Latin America, Mexico is the country with the most potential, but ignorance 60% of businesses that grow in collaborative, customer distrust, with 42% – and access to funding by 43%, are elements that, for now, bedevil the sector. Issues to a greater and lesser extent, are similar in other parts of the world; to which is attached a great work fragmentation and consumer protection .

The need to add improvements and innovations in legal frameworks is therefore just as necessary in Europe.

on the side of the legislative absence

Against all odds, the regulation of Mexico, both existing as adapted, it is the most unitholder has shown when siding with the collaborative economy. It has the virtue of being one of the few countries not only in Latin America but worldwide, of have legalized a series of projects , in many other places, are still banned. And others who, absent self-regulation have finished taking shape.

It is, in fact, the acceptance by regulation what has relaunched this region. Experiences related to transportation and business services mainly have virtually the outfield in the country.

Slowly, and with little regulation, experiences collaborative economy in Mexico are growing already talked about sharing trip in Mexico at the time which played a year of operations: a lot of success and many users, although some lack the time to find drivers. However, as Alberto Padilla told us a few months ago, lived legal experience in Spain It is taken as an example for what may come elsewhere. But it seems that Mexico will not; Sharing trip has achieved what a public transport system had failed to do so far without own laws as might have France. Cover long distances existing in the country and were neglected, both in price and availability. That is, in this case, an absence of legislation has favored one of the most collaborative services that exist at the time.

On the other hand, there is the experience of Airbnb. With an absence of regulation, as in the first case, this offer is also found their place in the country. not without complaints from the traditional hotel industry, similar to those experienced in Spain, Mexico has managed to control the boundaries of each of the parties. Again, a lack of regulation has supported the business; although with equal success in eropeos countries which already is managing a new law regulating this system, so far, in Mexico not been needed.

However, all these initiatives have originated outside Mexico’s borders. Some come from France, other US, Spain … Foreign these are the most profitable collected to date . But there are a number of similar experiences, adapted to the environment of collaborative economy, que . Are part of native business

In the area of ​​mobility for cities, and focused on the environment bicycles, there are several regulations also lacking experience: Bikla or Bikin-go . And Airbnb is not alone; DadaRoom or Parkeo offer a similar service. This situation is repeated in the case of sharing trip, which was made with the local business Aventones, and has a rival called CarrotMX

crowdfunding, also in developing

Where a firm regulation itself is required and is adapted to the situation in the field of financiaciaciones, Fintech, and more specifically in the field of collaborative business: the crowdfunding; which moves more than ten million dollars a year in the country. The report on this type of economy pointed out that this sector was one of the most promising long-term but it had to ensure issues related to improving cyber security and fraud prevention mechanisms . But again, there is no legislation.

Several sources indicate that during July, the executive Peña Nieto will outline the first signs of a law supporting technological financial sector and probably collaborative business.

still, the Inter-American Development Bank said it would collaborate in the development of a law that would integrate the best of all existing on crowdfunding, with the aim of creating a class system.

And is that platforms there are a few: bottomers , or Play Business , among many others.

What we do with Uber and Cabify?

Great question this. Uber has sparked controversy, not only as far as their fight against the taxi sector is concerned. Discussions guess complicated when determine whether Uber is collaborative economy or not . His most primitive version, in which normal drivers took advantage of a certain way to carry people who wanted to do the same, as a kind of sharing trip of city- itself was collaborative economy. Their struggle against governments and established economic powers has made them unfortunately lose that status; although in the majority of cases continue putting them in the group.

Mexico reached an interim agreement with Uber to finally regulate their activity still, Mexico is the few who had the courage to allow and regulate the activity of Uber in the streets. It, along with some regions of the United States and England, one of the first to do so. And a lot of sense. Despite some complaints from taxi drivers, security issues so that cross some areas of the country have made it necessary drivers, and thanks to Uber, contribute their data or paths are monitored.

This regulation, the first of its kind and at the other end of the aforementioned notable absentees, was a entente cordiale between the two sides. All drivers must be registered with the Department of Mobility and funding for improving public taxis. And yet there was controversy by variables Uber rates; which have also been completed regulating to avoid peak demand.

This is first and foremost a game ends at the end everyone will have to jump through hoops legislation.
