Success at Haiti Tech Summit
Haiti Tech Summit adds another successful event to the books in 2018. The event concluded this past weekend (22-23 June) with keynote speeches from tech’s finest, including the founder of Twitter and Square, Jack Dorsey.
The summit returned with 100 global speakers and 750 guests, topping its numbers and its equally impressive roster from last year, which included iconic tech investor, Ben Horowitz of Andreessen Horowitz.
“Hosting an event of this magnitude in Haiti not only aims to revitalize economic activity in the country but to also provide a new narrative for Haiti and emerging markets. Haiti is not open for business. Haiti is open for disruption,” said Ntim.
Companies represented included Silicon Valley giants such as Google, Facebook, Uber, Airbnb, Facebook, PayPal, MasterCard, LinkedIn, GitHub, Dropbox, Sendgrid, YouTube, Intuit, Adobe, and the list keeps growing year after year.
The summit continues to spark major initiatives within the country with the recent launch of Haiti’s first Space Agency.
