The Foundation's major objective is to develop and implement a support infrastructure in the Caribbean to assist entrepreneurs to develop, innovate and partner with other enterprises in the European Union.

Economies need entrepreneurs as they are the life blood of a business orientated society. Enterprises that are started by entrepreneurs add to the competitive spirit of the economy, as existing enterprises are forced to compete with the ideas and methods of newer firms and come up with more efficient business strategies.

In today’s global economy it is vital for enterprises – in particular small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) - to expand their horizons and develop relationships with enterprises in other countries.

It is commonly held that there are six “Pillars” of Entrepreneurship that are considered essential to the development of entrepreneurs:

  • Business Facilitation
  • Finance Availability
  • Government Policy
  • Mentorship
  • Networking
  • Talent and Education

The Foundation has developed, and is continuing to develop, activities to turn each of these six pillars into practical action. The initial actions so far are:
