Twelve entrepreneurs from the Caribbean and Latin America arrived in Miami this fall for a month-long fellowship program hosted by Global Ties Miami. In its second year, the U.S. Department of State’s Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative (YLAI) paired 250 emerging social and business leaders with businesses in 24 U.S. cities. A preliminary Business Plan Pitch Competition gave each fellow a potential opportunity to compete in a final round in Washington, D.C.
