Popularly known as Rosy, this Ecuadorian entrepreneur is the Director of MEBYF. She has had an outstanding career in business development, innovation, and entrepreneurship. She comes from a family of leaders who invest their life, energies, and passion for the improvement of their communities. In the past 16 years that Rosy has lived here in the Hague, she observed the challenges of the Latin American community closely who did not have the same opportunities for personal and professional growth, despite their great potential and important skills. This was the main motivation to launch a project aimed at supporting, empowering and guiding Spanish-speaking entrepreneurs, through the development of their business ideas, their talents, and skills, until they could successfully present their products and services to the European community and in general to the international community, this is how the MEBYF Foundation was officially registered in the Netherlands in 2019.

Our team of Volunteers

Fortunately, our community is expanding each day and we are no longer limited to the Spanish-speaking community anymore. We are also helping Expat entrepreneurs and we welcome everyone with open arms. We have a diverse team of international volunteers based in Holland and from different countries Azerbaijan, China, Colombia, Ecuador, India, Peru, Uganda, Vietnam and the list goes on…!

This work, which has been carried out for 7 years, and which is still underway, has had local support through the Municipality of The Hague, university institutions, as well as professionals of different nationalities, contributing their knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm, to this great endeavour.

Our mission – What is our main goal?

MEBYF aims at becoming a one-stop solution for ex-pats in Holland who want to explore their entrepreneurial potential. We offer entrepreneurship trainings from Phase Zero to envision a SOLID business foundation, we also assist entrepreneurs with administrative essentials to create their own brand and we introduce them to our ever-growing and vast network of successful business owners of the MEBYF community! Thus, our mission is to empower individuals at every step to become self-sufficient and create a successful community of entrepreneurs.

Our history – How was MEBYF born?
