In the heart of Central America, the Conecta initiative has been reshaping the entrepreneurial landscape of the region. With financial support from BID Lab, Bridge for Billions has spearheaded this project, comprised of 23 leaders from Entrepreneurship Support Organizations. Through their validated methodology, they have successfully propelled the largest incubation program for entrepreneurs in countries such as Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Costa Rica, and Panama.

Conecta Pitch Fest: Celebrating +400 Entrepreneurs with High Social Impact
In an effort to celebrate the achievements, Conecta has launched the Conecta Pitch Fest. This celebratory event will take place in each participating country, providing the 75 finalists the opportunity to showcase their projects to the world. These entrepreneurs will not only share how they are innovating in their respective industries but also outline their next steps for continued growth.

With events already held in Guatemala on November 10, El Salvador on November 14, Honduras on November 17, Costa Rica on November 21, and Panama on November 24, each Pitch Fest has been a stage for innovation and social impact.
