UWIC joins Consortium with international firms to implement World Bank’s Accelerate Caribbean Programme

25 May, 2015

UWI Consulting Inc., in consortium with IMC Worldwide Ltd (IMC), KoltaiCo, and BCSI has been contracted to implement the Accelerate Caribbean Programme.

Accelerate Caribbean was designed by infoDev as part of its Entrepreneurship Program for Innovation in the Caribbean (EPIC), funded by the Government of Canada.

The programme is aimed at making great business enablers even greater, through a tailored package of training and mentorship.

Business enablers, as is used within this context, refer to existing organizations or new consortia of organizations which provide entrepreneurs and start-ups with various types of support and motivation. This support might take the form of training; seed capital; professional advisory services; technology and workspace; or events and networking opportunities.

Accelerate Caribbean will soon be launching a 12-month Business Incubation Clinic for 10 enablers competitively selected from across the region. The clinic will match each enabler with an internationally renowned entrepreneurship mentor who will provide bi-weekly, one-on-one coaching and advice, in addition to the opportunity to benefit from infoDev’s Business Incubation Management Training Program.

Mentoring will take place both face-to-face and virtually. In addition to a tailored support program, each enabler will also take part in mentor-led online workshops for all clinic participants. This will bring like-minded enablers from the region together and support peer-to-peer learning and networking opportunities for all the selected enablers.
