Applications are open for the Eastern Caribbean Greenpreneurs Incubator Program 2021. Teams or individual entrepreneurs with a green business idea or leading an early-stage green enterprise can apply to be part of the Eastern Caribbean Greenpreneurs Incubator Program.
The Eastern Caribbean Greenpreneurs Incubator Program is a free, carefully curated training program designed to support green entrepreneurs to build robust and sustainable business models by giving them the skills, tools, and confidence to implement them successfully. This program is part of the wider Eastern Caribbean Green Entrepreneurship Initiative, a 3-year project supported by the Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD).
A Mentorship Program will be a key element of the incubator whereby each Greenpreneur, based on needs and preferences, will be assigned a mentor who will act as a ‘sounding board’ to support them through the process of building out their business models. A call for mentors has been launched for dynamic and experienced business persons in the private sector, as well as knowledgeable persons within the public sector who are willing to share their time and experiences as mentors. The Eastern Caribbean Greenpreneurs Incubator Program will run from October 2021 to January 2022.
- The program offers 12-weeks of virtual training, networking opportunities and the opportunity to participate in a business plan pitch competition to win grant seed funding of USD$10,000.
- Open to applicants from six (6) OECS Member States namely Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica; Grenada; St. Kitts and Nevis; Saint Lucia; and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
- Applicants should be entrepreneurial startups and early-stage enterprises with a green business idea or venture.
