At Knowledge@Wharton's Cuba Opportunity Summit on April 1, AS/COA's Alana Tummino guided a discussion on Cuba's expanding nonstate sector. Now that the country has nearly half a million cunetapropistas, or self-employed workers, there are new business opportunities for both Cubans and foreigners looking to invest. 

AS/COA was the exclusive Thought Leadership Partner of the summit and maintains a Cuba Working Group.
