Alterna is a centre for innovation and entrepreneurship based in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. We believe that social entrepreneurship generates long-term solutions to sustainable development, and improves the lives of those living at the base of the pyramid.
Alterna serves Guatemalan entrepreneurs and enterprises that are creating positive social and environmental impact. Our work is split into three programs, all of which help social entrepreneurship to thrive in Guatemala. In turn, the ultimate beneficiaries of Alterna’s work are the individuals and communities whose needs are addressed through social entrepreneurship.
