She Takes It Global: Chef Bel Coelho

Chef Bel Coelho (pictured) and the restaurateur Cristiano Almeida (business partners) started Dui Restaurante in 2009.  It is a restaurant located in Brazil with an inspired but down-to-earth menu that the world enjoys.

The tasting menu ranges from 10 to 12 dishes and changes regularly.  The idea is that the guests surrender themselves to the chef’s menu and have a unique gastronomic experience.

Check out their photos and videos here.  See why they are one of the world’s 50 best restaurants.

International Partnerships Matter

Here is a look at a sustainable route out of poverty.

Indego Africa, a nonprofit social enterprise, connects for-profit cooperatives of women artisans in Rwanda with export markets for their goods and provides training to help them run their businesses more effectively.

Bottom line:  Indego Africa markets the handmade accessories and home décor items that their partner cooperatives produce on its e-commerce site and to US brands and retail chains.  A collaboration with Nicole Miller was a real sales boost for the women artisans.

If Indego Africa does their job right, at some point these women artisans won’t need Indego Africa (or Nicole Miller) anymore.
