About

About: CaribbeanStartups.com is the home of the Caribbean’s startup ecosystem. Currently, only 12% of the region has incubators and accelerators to support local businesses. We aim to bring that number to 100% by 2020. How? By being the central hub of startup activity in the region that facilitates continued programming and partnerships between entrepreneurs and program coordinators. Follow us on Facebook!

We share our successes, failures, limitations, strengths, strategies and the experiences which shaped us – made us Caribbean entrepreneurs – all in the name of making the Caribbean entrepreneurial journey a tad bit easier for those who dare to travel the path.
