Start-Up Jamaica helps Caribbean innovators and entrepreneurs grow their ideas into marketable products and services, thus contributing to economic growth
The Ministry of Science, Technology, Energy & Mining (MSTEM) and its partners (the Development Bank of Jamaica, LIME, Jamaica National Building Society Foundation and Oasis500) and its sponsor (National Commercial Bank Jamaica Limited) share the goal of supporting talented and technologically savvy young people who are eager to tap into the global demand for creative applications that solve real-world business and social problems, and in so doing, create their own employment. Start-Up Jamaica (SUJ), is a key element in a strategy developed by Jamaica’s MSTEM to help Jamaican innovators and entrepreneurs grow their ideas into marketable products and services, thus contributing to economic growth, increasing employment and generating foreign exchange. The strategy aims to transform Jamaicans from being “technology consumers” to “technology creators” over the next few years, and to position Jamaica as the hub for entrepreneurship and innovation in the Caribbean.
