Haiti needs a revolution in entrepreneurship 

WHAT WE DO

EGI takes ideas & informal businesses and turns them into formal operations that can receive investment.

HOW WE DO IT

We find the most promising Haitian entrepreneurs, train them and connect them to top investors and businesspeople who serve as mentors. Together with the entrepreneurs and mentors we create formal small businesses and find 1st level funding.

OUR START

We were founded in 2005 in the aftermath of the 2004 crisis and work with entrepreneurs in the greater Port-au-Prince area.  

 

 
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
