NEW YORK--With Cuban-American relations back front and center on the political agenda, four of Cuba’s best and brightest minds in technology and design have been selected to travel to the U.S. and learn about American entrepreneurship in the heart of New York City’s startup scene.
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The sprouts of entrepreneurship in Cuba are taking hold, thanks in part to an innovative internship program that again this year will welcome Cuban young innovators to New York and immerse them in the world of American high-tech start-ups. The first-of-its-kind program, which is sponsored by the Innovadores Foundation, an American non-profit, is again hosting three young Cuban technologists to intern in the heart of Manhattan, at Grand Central Tech, a tech incubator that is giving life to the next generation of U.S. technology companies.
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On the heels of President Obama’s announcement reinstating diplomatic relations with Cuba, C.A.A., a privately funded, not-for-profit foundation based in Greenwich, Conn., has announced Innovadores, the first-ever initiative to promote entrepreneurship, opportunity, networking, mentoring, and resources for promising innovators in Cuba. The program will host young Cuban innovators in the fields of Science, Tech, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEM) and expose them to American entrepreneurial practice inside the Grand Central Tech incubator, located at the former Facebook headquarters in Manhattan.
