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.
