Innovate Barbados: Caribbean Edition expands to include the wider Caribbean as we use the issues and challenges we face in our region as catalysts for innovation.
Caribbean people have an urgent need to create solutions that help us to adapt to climate change and capitalize on our natural resources in ways that can benefit us and people beyond our shores.
Innovate Barbados: Caribbean Edition inspires entrepreneurs, investors, dreamers, dream-makers and public and private sector agencies on an international level to all connect, collaborate and create with a focus on advancing our blue and green economies.
"I had some very meaningful conversations with people from Dominica, Barbados, Jamaica, the UK, the US… that will no doubt lead to innovative collaborations across the Caribbean and beyond.”
