ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS ON A ROLLING BASIS

Nominate an 

Entrepreneur

to MEnvesti

MEnvesti is committed to supporting entrepreneurs in Haiti by giving them easy access to funding, especially in times of political uncertainty. Haiti has been trending on the news lately because of different protests which have cause small business owners to be exposed to more risks than usual. Despite the risk increase, some owners are adapting to the new status quo and creating innovative ways to provide services to their local community. We would like to support those innovators by inviting them to apply to our Inaugural Class of MEnvesti Entrepreneurs. Launched in August 2019 after more than 20 months of research and discussions, MEnvesti is connecting entrepreneurs in Haiti to small lenders in the Haitian diaspora. 

 

What is a MEnvesti Entrepreneur?

Once accepted into our Inaugural Class of MEnvesti Entrepreneurs (ICME), the candidate will become a MEnvesti Entrepreneur and join our team who will actively seek funding across the diaspora for his/her business. A MEnvesti Entrepreneur is an entrepreneur who lives in Haiti and has a for-profit development project that receives funding via MEnvesti. A MEnvesti Entrepreneur is someone who doesn't make excuses, works hard to provide quality services despite obstacles and genuinely cares about issues faced by vulnerable communities in Haiti. A MEnvesti Entrepreneur recognizes that the diaspora community is by far the most reliable funding source for his or her business and is a global citizen.
