A Conversation with Camilo Condis
WOLA is pleased to invite you to a discussion with Camilo Condis, a Cuban entrepreneur and advocate for local community development and social responsibility in Cuba’s emerging small business sector. Condis is able to provide an on-the-ground perspective of how small business owners and entrepreneurs are being impacted by recent reforms in Cuba, at a time when the island is increasingly moving towards a more mixed economy, while the country’s new constitution includes a historic acceptance of the role of private property. Condis will also discuss the impact that new U.S. travel and remittances restrictions, among other sanctions, are having on the small business sector, civil society, and the Cuban economy overall.
Camilo Condis is a Cuban entrepreneur (cuentapropista) and a social activist. He received his Industrial Engineering degree at the Technological Institute of Havana and his MBA from the San Antonio Catholic University of Murcia, Spain. He previously worked for Cuba Emprende, a business incubator whose goal is to train and support Cuban cuentapropistas. He is currently a senior manager at Artecorte, a nonprofit grassroots community organization in Havana. Condis is an advocate for the rights of small business owners in Cuba, supports community development efforts, and regularly collaborates with researchers and journalists covering entrepreneurship on the island. He lives in Havana.
