Episode 10: The Platform Must Be Immediately Created for the Evolving Caribbean Entrepreneur to Thrive

“The facts are, because jobs are no longer safe, or the currency so to speak, we’ve got to take account of the platform on which these new entrepreneurs will predicate their earnings, and logistics is going to be a huge part of it.”

There is a new wave of young entrepreneurs sprouting within the Caribbean marketplace. These entrepreneurs look outwardly beyond our shores and are well-primed to contribute to the economic growth of our region. When attempting to do so however, they are often barraged with a multitude of logistical challenges, which in turn reduce their ability to compete on the world stage and pose a significant threat to their sustainability.

In this episode we hear from Jannene Inniss, co-owner of the small agro-processing company, Groen Leaf. Jannene knows the challenges faced by Caribbean entrepreneurs all too well and shares some of her personal experiences with us. Together with our host, Jannene pleads for the paradigm shift needed for our region to create the platform that facilitates the evolving entrepreneur and allows them to both export their talents to the world and be competitive.
