SINT MAARTEN (GREAT BAY) - Produce Wealth Revolution (PWR) Agency aims to inspire and equip entrepreneurs with the skills to build thriving businesses through creating dynamic events and programs. Last year, due to the pandemic, the PWR Agency hosted more than 25 online programs reaching over 7500 persons around the world, with an average of 30% viewing from St. Maarten. Two of the most notable successes of 2020 were Islandpreneur Live, which had 650 registrants from 35 countries and iFOUNDED Joint Pitch Competition, which gave two grand prize winners, from Curaçao and St. Maarten, USD 3000 each.
