WINC’s Grow your Business workshops for women set for April 1 start in Antigua

A new group of enterprising Caribbean businesswomen is set to participate in the second round of the Women Innovators Network in the Caribbean (WINC) Grow your Business (GyB) Workshops.  Scheduled for Antigua on April 1-3 and St. Lucia on April 8-10, the program is expected to further the growth of an enabling economic ecosystem for high-growth, sustainable businesses.

The trainings will build on the success of the first GyB workshops, 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 programme is an initiative of infoDev and its Entrepreneurship Program for Innovation in the Caribbean (EPIC), in partnership with the Canadian government.  As part of EPIC, WINC has placed special emphasis on the region’s growth-oriented, innovative women entrepreneurs and business owners. EPIC continues to support competitive SME growth across the Caribbean, as well as mobile tech and climate innovation entrepreneurs. Women from these sectors in particular were encouraged to apply for selection for the workshops.

Women entrepreneurs from Antigua & Barbuda, the Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Montserrat, St. Lucia, St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Suriname, and Trinidad & Tobago have applied in this second round of Grow Your Business workshops. The World Bank is providing airfare and accommodation expenses for the GyB selectees and there is no training fee.
