Virtual Business Incubator and Accelerator Programme
Boost is a virtual incubator and accelerator programme , first of its kind in Saint Lucia, that encompasses a virtual community of strategic partners, startups, entrepreneurs, and business minded individuals working together to transform the entrepreneurship landscape even further, and by extension catalyse the innovative culture that thrives on island.
One of the key goals for Boost is to put individuals, small firms, and start-ups together in a community that focuses on building the best connections, supporting creative and transformative ideas, measuring key milestones and supporting strategic goals.
Our Business Virtual Hub is powered by Startup Space, which allows for the creation of a digital membership database, quick access to vital resources, support from a mentorship program and business development program, community forums, interactive learning platforms, and an events calendar. The goal of our Business Virtual Hub is is to connect entrepreneurs and business-minded individuals to key information, expertise, research and to each other in order to bridge the gap between businesspersons and all other organizations and agencies who can assist them with reaching milestones.
We have also partnered with key strategic business service support agencies in order to provide a stronger ecosystem for entrepreneurs.
We believe that every entrepreneur should have the opportunity to reach their fullest potential and the virtual business incubator and accelerator programme is a start to empowering people to do that.
Part of the overall programme and in keeping with the goal of connecting and educating our entrepreneurs, Boost features a series of virtual panel events.
A free virtual panel discussion event that focuses on a themed topic with various entrepreneurs from different backgrounds or sectors. Participants can learn more about managing and overcoming obstacles of a business from idea to conceptualization and finally implementation. Participants can also ask crucial questions directly to the panel, take part in polls/surveys and participate in question and answer segments.
The X in Boost X represents the X-factor, a variable given situation that could have the most significant impact on an outcome, to which the hope is that these panels and discussions create such a situation for the best outcome of our entrepreneurs.
Boost X will occur once every month with dynamic entrepreneur panels.
Women Empowered in Business (WEB series), features women in the entrepreneurial ecosystem that have had success. The goal is to inspire other women to enter the space and feel empowered. We truly believe the best way to empower women in entrepreneurship is by the wisdom of those who walked before them and their extraordinary stories.
