EGADE at the Forbes Economic and Business Forum Monterrey 2023

Professor Carlos Scheel, alumni Maryangel García Ramos, Ángela Gómez Aíza and Lorenzo Barrera Segovia, and student Moris Dieck participated in the meeting organized by the magazine Forbes México.


A meeting for analysis and discussion with public and private sector leaders took place in the Forbes Economic and Business Forum Monterrey 2023, organized by the magazine Forbes México, in partnership with Executive Education of EGADE Business School - Tecnológico de Monterrey.

This business event was held on March 22 at the hotel JW Marriott in San Pedro Garza García and was inaugurated by Samuel García, Nuevo León State Governor.

The EGADE Business School community was present in the forum’s agenda.

Carlos Scheel, emeritus professor and Circular Economy leader at EGADE Business School, and EGADE alumna Maryangel García Ramos (MBA’20), executive director of Women Enabled International and president of the Nuevo León Board for People with Disabilities, participated in the conversation on “Smart, inclusive and sustainable cities.”

The scholar explained that we need to break away from last century’s innovation paradigm, stop generating isolated products and wealth, and move on to systems.

“Instead of innovating in an electric car, think about a transportation system, move on from the product to the system, because this is what cities need. We need to shift from a linear to a circular innovation mindset, one that is disruptive. We also need to develop more zero-emission technologies,” Scheel said.

For her part, García Ramos commented that in order to have inclusive cities, we need to start by acknowledging the inequality gaps and global factors or trends.

Ángela Gómez Aíza (MA’06), president of SAP México, Master in Business Management graduate, and winner of the 2022 EXATEC EGADE Achievement Award, participated in the panel “The future of Industry 4.0 and digital transformation in Nuevo León.”

In addition, Lorenzo Barrera Segovia (MA’84), chairman of the Board of Grupo Financiero BASE and Master in Business Management graduate, took part in the panel “Nuevo León and nearshoring. The opportunity to redefine industrial development.”

Moris Dieck, business strategist, financial consultant, and currently a Master in Finance student at EGADE Business School, served as the forum conductor.
