The Program

Enterprise Innovation Challenge Fund

The EICF epitomizes the intensity of Compete Caribbean’s commitment to the development of the region’s private sector. It is a competitive mechanism to provide financial support (through non-reimbursable grants) to the Caribbean private sector to pursue innovative projects in the region.

The Fund provides support for innovation activities through two thematic windows: The Innovation Window, which provides funding to firms and entrepreneurs to take a chance on an innovative, risky business idea in an attempt to improve the revenue performance and competitiveness of the firm and the Support to Clustering Initiatives Window, which provides support to a collective, either horizontally aligned or vertically integrated to pursue an innovative business idea with direct benefits to all parties involved.

Both windows are intended to positively impact the livelihood of the communities in which the businesses operate either directly or indirectly through increased employment and greater opportunities for income generation. The Fund is open to all who meet its criteria, and is promoted in the public domain and through targeted interventions at the local level.
