In 2018 Youth Business International (YBI) commissioned research to better understand the digital landscape and its relevance to young entrepreneurs in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). The research aims to provide insight to support our work with members in the region on the adoption of digital technologies.
Overall our research found that digital landscape in Latin America and the Caribbean is growing rapidly with great potential. Awareness and usage of digital support solutions amongst entrepreneurs in the region varies. In this report, we are outlining a number of opportunities where YBI can offer valuable support so that entrepreneurs can leverage digital to start and grow their businesses.
