Forbes and Oxford Entrepreneurs Choose Cuba Expedition over Embargo

Cuba On The Cusp

Vigilante Entrepreneurs Sell Out Cuban Trip, Request More Allotments

Oxford Entrepreneurs is sending a large group of its members to Cuba October 1st, 2015 to explore and expand Entrepreneurial education in the newly accessible country that seems ready to go to the next level of economic opportunity, the very vision and mission for Oxford Entrepreneurs in the United States.

While congressional Republicans and the Obama White House wrestle with a “wait and see” attitude over Cuban embargoes or Cuban engagement respectively, the center’s fast-growth business owners has set a date for an Entrepreneurial expedition with an ambitious business education agenda to Cuba. Loren Feldman, editor at Forbes magazine, will accompany the Entrepreneurs on the trip, marking a Forbes journalistic foray into Cuba. Oxford Entrepreneurs agenda is unique in that it takes a deep dive into Entrepreneurial education involving local Cuban Entrepreneurs.

Cliff Oxford, founder of Oxford Entrepreneurs, says “Most often American business people go to Cuba looking for American opportunities. We’re interested in helping Cuban emerging Entrepreneurs with Cuban opportunities.” We think ultimately that positive economic growth anywhere in the world helps all of us. Despite the back and forth in Washington, many Entrepreneurs apparently agree with Oxford, as the sign up pace has been brisk for the Entrepreneurial expedition. Oxford Entrepreneurs has sold out all of its rooms at the storied and legendary Hotel Nacional and has gone back to the well twice for increased room allotments due to demand. Education has always been front and center of Oxford Entrepreneurs, founded at Emory University in 2008.

Today, Oxford has the first-ever accredited Entrepreneur MBA program at Brenau University. Oxford Entrepreneurs is unique in that it focuses on successful Entrepreneurs who are growing and expanding their business across the nation and the world.
