a bit about me:
I am a proud Haitian ecosystem builder currently pursuing a Masters in Public Administration at Harvard.
I founded Banj, a local entrepreneurship hub partner of Google in Port-au-Prince. Before turning 30, I worked in international development for 8 years based in Port-au-Prince and in Washington, DC at the World Bank then with the Inter-American Development Bank. In 2010, I co-founded Groupe ECHO Haiti, an organization valorizing the potential of young adults in development in Haiti through which I created and lead several innovative projects including ELAN Haiti, a platform that brings together a community of students, young leaders and entrepreneurs from Haiti, its diaspora and the world focused on taking joint actions in Haiti. I am currently responsible for partnerships at the Haiti Tech Summit: The biggest international tech event in the country. I also serve as Board Member at the French-Haitian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CFHCI) and at the Haitian Education and Leadership Program (HELP). I am a proud One Young World ambassador and a Fulbright scholar with an M.A in Financial Economic Policy from American University and a B.A in Applied Quantitative Economics from CTPEA.
I enjoy travelling the world to learn and to share my passion for youth, entrepreneurship, technology and innovation. I believe that entrepreneurship is the only way out of poverty for Haiti. Through the various initiatives I am involved in, I am simply trying to offer all those willing to go in that direction a seat at the table.
