“Known as ‘The Pearl of the West Indies” during its heyday as a tourism destination after WWII, Haiti is eager and ready to re-establish itself as one of the region’s prime tourist locations. Both Haiti’s private and public sectors are committed to achieving this goal” (CFI, 2015). Tourism remains as one of the largest opportunities to grow Haiti’s economy and for entrepreneurs to create business. Some opportunities for Haitian entrepreneurs to capitalize off of are

  • Haiti’s history (historical sites where historic moments took place)
  • Educational Exchange programs
  • Publicizing and inviting the diaspora to annual events
  • The Arts
