STARTUP CARIBE is a regional community first initiative with a mission to help Caribbean Tech entrepreneurs build great businesses and help grow the Caribbean Startup Ecosystem. Since 2007, the programme has been connecting aspiring and current Caribbean entrepreneurs to each other, potential co-founders and funders via regular meetup and pitch events, educational events and online communities. Through the programme, we also keep the Caribbean Tech Community well informed, through our Caribbean Tech blog– SiliconCaribe.com and email newsletters. We’ve been priming the pipeline that’s leading to more Caribbean Startups.
THE MISSION OF STARTUP CARIBE
- To build, strengthen and support vibrant startup communities in the Caribbean + Diaspora
