Marc Alain Boucicault
I am the founder of Banj, a local entrepreneurship hub in Port-au-Prince. I’ve worked in international development for 8 years based in Port-au-Prince and in Washington, DC at the World Bank then with the Inter-American Development Bank. In 2010, I co-founded Groupe ECHO Haiti, an organization valorizing the potential of young adults in development in Haiti through which I created and lead several innovative projects including ELAN Haiti, a platform that brings together a community of students, young leaders and entrepreneurs from Haiti, its diaspora and the world focused on taking joint actions in Haiti. I am currently responsible for partnerships at the Haiti Tech Summit: The biggest international tech event in the history of the country. I am also co-founder and chief external relations officer at HFund, a closed-ended micro-venture capital firm based in Haiti offering new modern and tailored financial instruments that bring capital to innovative businesses and contribute to the emergence of a new category of entrepreneurs in Haiti. I am a proud One Young Worldambassador and a Fulbright scholar with an M.A in Financial Economic Policy from American University and a B.A in Applied Quantitative Economics from CTPEA. I enjoy teaching economics to 12th graders at College les Oliviers and traveling the world to learn and to share my passion about youth, entrepreneurship and innovation.
