Since the inaugural event on April 1, 2015, more than 1500 industry professionals representing over $12BN in assets under management have participated in our portfolio of Cuba Opportunity events to gain exclusive insights and develop meaningful relationships . 

Serving as the largest gathering of influential executives, investors, government officials, media and academics evaluating or already conducting business in Cuba, the 3rd Cuba Opportunity Summit, produced by Momentum in partnership with The Wharton School’s Lauder Institute and Knowledge@Wharton, will once again bring together industry experts and those with real-world Cuba experience to discuss how U.S. businesses can further develop and prepare for a Cuba market-entry strategy.

Topics currently under development include:

  • What does 2017 Presidential Administration priorities mean for US-Cuba relations?
  • Stories of success: The anatomy of realized opportunities from hospitality to telecom
  • Workforce management: Separating myth from reality on hiring a local workforce
  • Structuring contracts and agreements in the face of ever-changing regulations
  • Assessing real estate, manufacturing and tourism opportunities
  • Tapping into Cuba’s entrepreneurial culture
  • Additional topics under research
