Royal Road Accelerator: Receives Economic Development Award and Announces Recipients of its First Community Investment Fund.


We are pleased to announce that the Accelerator has won the Economic Development Award at the 2021 Colombian Gold Symposium which was held in Medellin last week . The award recognizes leading economic development programs which support host communities and create real and sustainable economic and social impact.

Royal Road competed against 6 other mining and exploration companies, and was evaluated under the criteria of innovation, effectiveness, replicability, social inclusion, creation of alliances and sustainability.

The Accelerator is a wholly-owned, yet financially independent subsidiary of Royal Road which supplements the Company’s ongoing social initiatives by identifying commercial opportunities in its rural communities in Nicaragua and Colombia and collaborating with other investors and other stakeholders to incubate and spin-out innovative enterprises engaged in the cultivation and fabrication of goods for international markets. The Accelerator is currently advancing Cloris Ltd (a hemp CBD project) in Nariño, Colombia and the Quassia and Amaral projects (natural bioinsecticide and commercial beverage projects) in Nicaragua.
