ECatalyst is a collection of people from many nations and walks of life that believe strongly in the power of ownership and sustainability in development. We believe that change comes from within and that Western assistance works best when it serves underneath local leadership. We also believe in the power of business, and that the process of entrepreneurship contains within it the ownership, local creativity, and economic impact that makes development sustainable.
As for entrepreneurs, we at ECatalyst believe strongly that there are heroes in every community, no matter how disadvantaged, with great ideas to start transformative businesses. With world-class training, mentors, resources, and a supportive community, great ideas come out of the most unlikely of places and can have massive impact. This is what we mean when we say we are
transforming communities through their entrepreneurs.
