How to Make Friends 

and Do Business in Cuba

Havana City and Bay

Why Cuba?

Cuba is unique. Like other Caribbean nations, Cuba has fabulous parks, villages, and towns. The capital of Cuba, Havana, is a fascinating city, full of historic and artistic treasures. But unlike other islands in the region, Cuba has been isolated from the United States, its powerful neighbor to the north, and has developed a special society.

Business & Investment

Our workshops cover Cuban law as it relates to business entities, joint ventures, property, NGOs, nonprofits, and foreign investment.  What opportunities are opened by the new Cuban constitution?  We will also examine environmental protection and regulation of development projects.

University of Havana

Workshops are held at the prestigious University of Havana. One of the oldest universities in the Americas — and Cuba's oldest—it was founded in 1728 and served as the intellectual headquarters for the Cuban Revolution. We will tour the beautiful campus and Law School and engage with faculty and students.
