StartUp Cuba Starts Cuba Up

The Abe Farag Family Foundation has recently awarded a grant to StartUp Cuba (an initiative of Roots of Hope), which provides novel mentoring and learning opportunities to founders of businesses in Cuba. As Cuba opens its economy up and shifts toward the Western model of capitalism, new markets are created at an astounding rate. Needs which have never been adequately met before may now be served by a new class of entrepreneurs. StartUp Cuba brings the founders of these young businesses together, and helps them benefit from the experiences of mentors from the United States who can help them get onto the right track.

The Cuba of tomorrow is certain to look incredibly different from yesterday's Cuba, and we at Abe Farag Family Foundation are excited to help StartUp Cuba bring such a positive change to pass.
