Connecting people. Connecting Ideas.

The 2nd ever MileOne Innovation Challenge gives you the opportunity to challenge the biggest technological and operational issues facing the Trade Industry and the Port of Laredo at large. We bring industry leaders together with the brightest minds in order to create lasting, innovative solutions to boost our port’s competitiveness on a national and international level.

Are you in the Trade Industry?

This is your chance to innovate and elevate your business. This is your chance to dive deep into the issues you face every day and work as a team in order to solve them. Don’t sit back while others (including Uber & Amazon) adapt, automate, and move forward with more efficient models. Come challenge and innovate the systems in place in order to be a step above.

Are you a Problem Solver?

If you’re a creative thinker, software developer, coder, or just someone who wants to create change and innovation; this is your chance to disrupt the current state of the industry and showcase your talent and skills.

This first event will consist of an expert panel and discussion three weeks prior to the challenge which will set the topics our teams will tackle. We are currently in the process of selecting panel members, mentors, and judges.

After you register, share your thoughts to the conversation here:
