Three new hotel expansions
Cambodia, Léon and Suriname: the three new locations on the Corazón map! Today, three entrepreneur teams launch their crowdfunding campaigns for new hotel operations of Hotel con Corazón in Cambodia, León (Nicaragua) and Paramaribo (Suriname).
We have the ambition to open 10 new hotels in 10 years. Earlier this year a campaign for Oaxaca, Mexico was launched.
Eva de Hartog (34) and Gijs Heuvingh (35) from Amsterdam strongly believe that a Hotel con Corazón is a valuable addition in Cambodia, for both tourists and locals. They have a lot of experience in Cambodia and are already supporting underprivileged youth through the Chance2Study foundation.
Jans Zwiers (41) and Rens Kalsbeek (42) from Groningen used to run a B&B and a lunchroom in an old Dutch windmill. For the past six months they lived in León, where they found out that there are a lot of improvements to make in the field of education.Together with Lucy Drost (32, living in León) they want to set up a second Hotel con Corazón in Nicaragua.
Jessica Augustin (40) and Stanley Wassenaar (42) from Amsterdam have had plans to start a sustainable enterprise abroad for some time now. Stanley partly grew up in Suriname and ran a bar in Amsterdam for years. With a Hotel con Corazón in Paramaribo they want to accomplish better education and thereby better future perspectives for more children.
To realize our plans, the entrepreneurs need investments, so they launch their own crowdfunding campaigns. Every team has the goal to raise 20% of their start-up capital of around 1 million dollar through the sale of social shares and donations. Crowdfunding pages
