In this GYDA Talks, Robert talks to Chris Martinez. Chris is the Founder of DUDEAgency.io which helps digital agencies by giving them the people, processes, and education so they can take on more projects and scale profitably.
Chris owned a digital agency for three years and then in 2015 he moved all of his web design and development to Tijuana, Mexico and it was a total game-changer for his agency. He quickly learned that Tijuana gives agencies all the benefits of outsourcing and none of the downsides.
In 2017, Chris launched DUDE to provide the perfect outsourcing solution for digital agencies. Today, DUDE is working with digital agencies all over the US and Canada and provides them the perfect outsourcing solution for digital agencies. Best of all, DUDE is helping digital agencies to scale, creating new technology jobs in Latin America and Asia, and little by little, DUDE’s staff are changing the way that people perceive these regions.
In 2021, DUDE won a Gold Stevie Award from the American Business Association for Minority-Owned Business of the Year and a Silver Stevie Award for Most-Innovative Companies Under 100 Employees.
