Haiti needs a revolution in entrepreneurship 

WHAT WE DO

EGI operates a comprehensive entrepreneurial training and mentorship program in the Haitian cities of Port-au-Prince and Jacmel. We take ideas & informal businesses and turn them into formal operations that can receive investment and create jobs.

HOW WE DO IT

We partner with international experts like the University of Notre Dame and work with local organizations like The Haitian Project to find the most promising Haitian entrepreneurs that need support. We recruit and train them and then connect them to top investors and business leaders who serve as mentors. 

OUR START

We were founded in 2005 in the aftermath of the 2004 political crisis when the economy was at a standstill. Our goal has always been to provide young Haitians with the training they need to create their own economic opportunities.   

 
I think that if more people had the opportunity to participate in something like this it would make a difference in Haiti
— James St Fort, EGI class 2011
