In this fireside chat, Martin Friedl and Dorian Popá discuss the importance of youth entrepreneurship and empowerment in the “orange economy” (also known as the creative industries). Dorian’s entrepreneurial ventures in the tech sector have provided youth in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala a space to flex their creative muscles and start their own creative ventures. Martin and Dorian discuss how CIPE’s support under the CIPE-supported Xelaju Naranja program empowered Dorian and other youth entrepreneurs to overcome challenges to become successful entrepreneurs.
