Hello I am Daniel Jean Louis, and welcome to my site! Throughout my career as an entrepreneur, development professional, and educator, I’ve learned that the best way to eliminate poverty and create jobs is to leverage opportunity and empower people to meet their own needs sustainably. No one wants to be a beggar for life. Real development happens when we partner across markets and cultures, working together to meet shared goals. I hope these pages will lead you to examine the concept of opportunity-based economic development for yourself—and you can learn more about the concept on our blog. As well, please don’t hesitate to contact me for information about speaking opportunities, business training programs, or for more information about From Aid to TradeTrinity LodgeBridge Capital, or the 100K Jobs Program. I look forward to connecting with you.
