The first GyB workshops were held last September in Jamaica and Barbados. Attended by 45 women from 12 islands, they were designed to help the entrepreneurs look more critically and innovatively at their business models. The women who attended represented a wide range of early-stage, growth-oriented businesses.
In this edition of ‘Meet the WINC entrepreneurs’, we profile two women who attended the inaugural workshops. Both are serving their clients with cutting-edge technology-based solutions.
