spot_img

The Eastern Caribbean Greenpreneurs Incubator Program is proud to announce the selection of its third cohort, comprising 43 promising green entrepreneurs (Greenpreneurs) from across the Eastern Caribbean region.

This prestigious program aims to nurture and empower environmentally conscious innovators who are dedicated to creating a sustainable and inclusive environment through their business models.

The Eastern Caribbean Greenpreneurs Incubator Program was launched in 2021 and is a collaborative initiative of The Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) and the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States and funded by the Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD).

The program is a free, carefully curated, training and mentoring program designed to support green entrepreneurs in building robust and sustainable business models and give them the skills, tools, and confidence to set them up for success.

It features a 12-week virtual green business training based on the lean start-up methodology, a mentorship program, one-on-one coaching and networking opportunities culminating in a business plan competition where up to ten businesses can qualify for grants of US $10,000.

Applications from 120 businesses were received for the program, however only 24 were selected after a rigorous screening, evaluation, and selection process.

The selection criteria sought to identify startups with a green focus, strong entrepreneurial mindset, high growth potential and a level of inclusivity among other considerations.

“We are thrilled to introduce the talented businesses who make up the third cohort of the Eastern Caribbean Greenpreneurs Incubator Program,” said Dr. Kristin Deason, Caribbean Representative, GGGI.

“These green entrepreneurs have demonstrated exceptional creativity, passion, and dedication to driving positive change in our region. We are confident that they will play a significant role in shaping a greener and more sustainable future.”

GGGI congratulates the following entrepreneurs selected for third cohort:

  1. This is great!! However until we stop using so many deadly chemicals on our little Island, it is of no use. Our food and water are polluted, and many dying of cancer.
