The Prosperity Paradox

We’re on a quest to employ the principles from Clayton Christensen’s book, The Prosperity Paradox: How Innovation Can Lift Nations Out of Poverty in an effort to help people lift themselves out of poverty through industry creation. Our goal is to lift people out of poverty with a hand up rather than a handout.

Innova is a division of the Wayne Julien Foundation oriented around two main goals: 

  • Helping entrepreneurs to grow and scale their businesses 

  • Empowering people in third-world countries to lift themselves out of poverty 

We accomplish both goals at once by teaching and applying principles of entrepreneurship detailed in Clayton Christensen’s The Prosperity Paradox to the people of Guatemala. 

On this trip, you will have the opportunity to teach business principles to the citizens of Guatemala as well as receive training from a team of business experts.

Our workshops and trainings include Mel Torrie and his team’s expertise on: 

  • Building relationships with billion-dollar businesses 

  • Making and distributing a product 

  • Turning your business’ challenges into strengths 

  • Building a company culture 

Come with us to experience the beautiful country and culture of Guatemala and help us in our mission to transform both your business and the world into something better!

Join The Team

Come join Mel and his team to give back by helping lift Guatemala out of poverty while also learning how to build a company worth 9 figures that you won’t want to sell!
