Managua Hub

The Global Shapers Managua Hub serves as a platform for high quality and high impact projects in education, entrepreneurship, and women’s empowerment. The Hub was launched in 2012 and has had more than 50 Shapers from various sectors including nonprofit organizations, businesses, technology, universities, entertainment, and many more.

We work with different organizations to plan and execute signature projects such as 15 Minutos de Emprendimiento, Noche de Emprendimiento, Reading Corners, Barriotecas, Nicaragua Tech Summit and Innovate. Most projects have been aimed at improving access to education, and fostering entrepreneurship, innovation & technology.

Along with possessing a valuable network, our goal is to inspire other leaders to expand their imagination and drive positive change in Nicaragua and abroad.
