#1 in the Trilogy Series -  Scaling home-grown innovation to spur sustainable economic development: La Red de Innovacion e Impacto

People and economies thrive when small, local businesses are empowered to reach their full potential. These businesses in particular can comprise up to 95% of jobs in Latin American countries. To survive and thrive, they need support and incentives to access new markets and customers, and grow sustainably. In 2014, the U.S. Department of State funded the World Environment Center (WEC) and its partners, Le Groupe-conseil baastel ltée (Baastel), Context Partners, and EarthShift Global, to select organizations who are able to access and accelerate business development and promoting sustainable economic growth in Latin America. Gwen Davidow of WEC, the lead organization for this project, will tell the story of why and how this initiative was created, and how it has grown over the past 3.5 years.
