Caribbean entrepreneurs and individuals now have direct access to a global network of startup support designed to expedite the development of their business ventures through a diverse community framework.
This support is provided through TEN Habitat, a non-profit that assists entrepreneurs in the development and build-out of investor-ready businesses. TEN Habitat aims to assist in the development of more viable ventures that can assist long-term economic growth, improve youth unemployment levels, and foster job creation in the Caribbean.
TEN Habitat has created a Co-working Space and Innovation Hub in Bridgetown which is a dedicated space where entrepreneurs gain access to office facilities that include meeting rooms, fixed and ‘hot’ desks, free coffee, free snacks, free Wi-Fi, as well as access to a global network of other entrepreneurs and mentors. The space will also be used to host business building workshops and events.
The next business building event will be held on July 6 & 7 on the 1st Floor, Carlisle House Co-working Space. This two-day event will connect participants with experienced coaches and facilitators to help them discover the value and real growth potential of their idea, startup or business and how to develop it.
The event also provides the opportunity for participants to be accepted into the TEN Hybrid Accelerator to continue the work of speeding up the development of their startup and attracting funding. The Hybrid Accelerator is executed in collaboration with a number of global partners in Silicon Valley, Waterloo Canada, United Kingdom and Africa to truly expose Caribbean entrepreneurs to a really global perspective and approach of startup design, launch and growth.
