    Strengthening innovative entrepreneurship in the Dominican Republic

    Project name:

    Strengthening Innovative Entrepreneurship

    Project location:

    Dominican Republic

    Sub-focus area:

    Capacity Building 

    The AES Dominicana Foundation and The Trust for the Americas, an affiliate of the Organization of American States (OAS), have partnered for the “Strengthening Innovative Entrepreneurship” program to promote and incentivize local entrepreneurship in the municipalities of Boca Chica, Guayacanes, Quisqueya, Bancos de Arena and la Malena in the Dominican Republic.

    More than 150 entrepreneurs spent two months training and studying the Canvas Business Model and acquired tools to strengthen their business concepts. The project includes an entrepreneurial fair where participants compete for funds by presenting their business plan for the development or expansion of their business. The plans are evaluated by a panel of judges on various criteria, including financial viability, sustainability, creativity, innovation, and coherence of their business model.

    By increasing entrepreneurial skills within the people of the region, the project will contribute to the socio-economic and sustainable development of the local communities.


    200+ participants 


    The Trust for the Americas, Fundacion AES Dominicana, local chambers of commerce, and the municipalities of Boca Chica, Guayacanes, and Quisqueya
