Haiti recently Hosted Global Speakers for Tech Summit Festival

Tech Summit is an effort to accelerate the United Nations' sustainable development goals. Haiti Tech Summit brought thousands of entrepreneurs, investors, digital marketers and innovators under one roof together to address humanity's greatest challenges. The Global Startup Ecosystem (GSE) is an organization created with the aim of accelerating startups from emerging markets; it is the first and largest digital accelerator network in the world with a mission to digitize offline startup ecosystems. GSE is the 'event sponsor' of Haiti's 2017 Tech Summit Festival.


The Haiti summit was a historic event with the participation of 100 global speakers flying from the top startup capitals of the world such as Silicon Valley, Dubai, New York, and London. Some of the most popular world Tech startups and important media participating in the summit include Uber, AirBnB, Google and "Inc Magazine", "Ebony Magazine", "Black Enterprises", and "Forbes".
The summit has been organized with three primary objectives. (i) As an annual meeting point the participants and entrepreneurs can discuss and exchange their ideas and practices at regular intervals. (ii) It serves as a central platform for showcasing advances in the rapidly growing technologies and (iii) To assist in the formation of an annual partnership program towards achieving UN's 17 sustainable development goals (such as, No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Good Health, Quality Education, Gender Equality, etc.) to transform our world.

The Haiti Tech Summit is a 13-year initiative of the Global Startup Ecosystem that aims to revitalize Haiti's entrepreneurial economy and reposition it as a global study of catalyzed innovation within an emerging market country. The event was announced on the eve of Haiti's 2010 earthquake anniversary on January 12th, and the announcement was immediately shared by over 423,000 supporters within 24 hours.

The Haiti Tech Summit took place at Decameron Beach Resort in partnership with Haiti's Minister of Tourism. The details of the programs are as under:
