Fostering Economic Opportunity

Recognizing that economic growth and prosperity are cornerstones in democratic societies, MEPI’s economic projects promote entrepreneurship, job skills training, and economic advocacy to help cultivate broad-based opportunities for everyone. These projects are successfully helping start-ups and SMEs access capital, creating sustainable growth in the job market, and addressing regulatory issues towards better legal framework for business.

On Prosperity...

  • "For just as democratic revolutions can be triggered by a lack of individual opportunity, successful democratic transitions depend upon an expansion of growth and broad-based prosperity."

    -President Obama, May 19, 2011
