Youth Business Caribbean (YBC) is a community of entrepreneurial support organisations empowering young persons to establish entrepreneurial businesses in the Caribbean. Since 2012, we have been working together to strengthen the ecosystem for young entrepreneurs in the Caribbean. YBC was launched as part of the Entrepreneurship Program for the Eastern Caribbean (YEPEC) Project funded by USAID. The project has facilitated the development of local Youth Business Trust’s, building their capacity to deliver services to young entrepreneurs and work together to create a stronger ecosystem for young entrepreneurs in the Caribbean.
The purpose of the Youth Business Caribbean, as defined by YEPEC is to:
- To expand access to entrepreneurial support activities for young people throughout the Caribbean; and
- To develop capabilities of Youth Business Programmes (YBPs) to deliver youth entrepreneurial support activities throughout the Caribbean.
