Haiti Tech Trip February 2014
Haiti Partner board member Jesse Engle is organizing a group of people from the tech industry to travel to Haiti to explore opportunities to contribute to the development Haiti’s technical sector. Specifically we’re looking for ways to identify and support Haitian entrepreneurs starting or running Internet businesses, then identify how we can support them by lending our expertise (business strategy, marketing, product, engineering, team building, administration) as well as leveraging our professional networks to help them to be successful. On this trip we’ll be meeting with leaders from business, government, education and NGOs to learn as much as we can and connect with other efforts.
The trip is essentially a long weekend, flying out of SFO on the redeye the evening of Wednesday 2/19 and returning to SFO Monday 2/24 in the evening. The cost of the trip – which includes everything but airfare – is $700 per person.
