Flore Somon is aspiring to open her own honey company in the footsteps of her grandfather, whose own honey business failed due to issues with location. She is interested in honoring her grandfather’s tradition by producing handmade high-quality honey, which she has discovered through her research has therapeutic properties and is good for the skin and general health. Her long-term goals include plans for national production. Flore chose to attend this entrepreneurship workshop to learn more about how to plan and prepare a startup, and to get feedback from professionals and fellow participants on her ideas.
Flore studies informatics at École Superieur Infotronique d’Haiti. She loves nature, and is proud of her Haitian culture, and wants to make the best possible product for her people.
