The Haiti Tech Summit is a 13-year initiative of the Global Startup Ecosystem which conducts the largest online digital accelerator in emerging markets. The Summit aims to revitalize Haiti’s entrepreneurial economy and reposition it as a global study of catalyzed innovation within an emerging market country.
As the world’s first black independent republic, Haiti’s history and culture make it the ideal stage to gather global industry leaders, entrepreneurs and creatives in a forum to exchange and tackle some of the world’s most pressing challenges in innovation and sustainability.

The Haiti Tech Summit is for local and international industry leaders, entrepreneurs, investors, digital marketers and creatives interested in transforming the world via entrepreneurship. The Silicon Mountain, with its tropical climate and exotic beaches, is the ideal Caribbean getaway for tech enthusiasts and disruptors.
