Crafting an Entrepreneurial Vision for Youth via Entrepreneurship

CIPE and Guatemala partner the Red Nacional de Grupos Gestores (RNGG), a national network of community development groups, work towards stimulating a democratic culture in Quetzaltenango based on private initiative and innovation. This project seeks to motivate youth to explore economic opportunities centered on their creative talents.

The CIPE-RNGG partnership is strengthening citizens’ civic-mindedness and engagement in locally driven economic development by leading a consortium of entrepreneurship ecosystem actors including private and public sector leaders of the community, implementing a series of entrepreneurship educational programs for more than 400 youth, and raising awareness of the power of entrepreneurship through person-to-person exchanges and creative media.
