As a component of the REACH Program (Regional Entrepreneurial Asset Commercialization Hub) for the Caribbean, YABT developed Business Labs tailored to Caribbean entrepreneurs. These labs were established in order to train participants and generate spaces for the exchange of good practices and success stories; while motivating entrepreneurs interested in taking actions to support the consolidation of entrepreneurship as the engine of growth in Latin America and the Caribbean.
REACH is a recently approved program that will build the commercialization capabilities of entrepreneurs and enterprises from the Caribbean.
The program supports the strengthening of the CARICOM member states’ capabilities to generate entrepreneurship and intellectual property commercialization within the creative industries. As a follow up activity, YABT continues to implement the Caribbean Innovation Competition (CIC).
This regional technical cooperation project is funded by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).
