Our purpose is to inspire entrepreneurs in Trinidad and Tobago, and throughout the Caribbean region, by providing the necessary tools and insights to develop their skillsets. We aim to drive local entrepreneurs to create dynamic businesses, and connect them with investors so that it will garner greater recognition for the Caribbean business community as a whole.
Planting Seeds also harnesses the full potential of the local media to give budding local entrepreneurs a much-deserved chance to innovate, create, and forge exciting new paths in the Caribbean business landscape.
It's a passion project that's all about supporting your passion project.
Planting Seeds also has a television series that gives entrepreneurs who register with us, the opportunity to pitch their idea to a panel of successful investors on national and regional television.
Every episode features several entrepreneurs, each delivering a concise presentation of their business plan to the panel, after which they are given feedback. One or more of the investors may then offer to wholly or partly finance the idea in exchange for an equity stake in the business. Alternatively, the investors may reject the pitch altogether, offering expert insights as to why and how the business plan should be improved or overhauled.
The show is also an educational program, which features feedback about the specifics of business deals from an investor perspective, and from a legal perspective, through commentary from our strategic partners. If you would like to submit an application to appear on Planting Seeds and present your business idea to our investors, click here for more information or contact us.
The overarching purpose of Planting Seeds is to creatively promote entrepreneurship throughout the Caribbean and provide entrepreneurs with the tools needed to propel their business forward. Our aim is to leverage our local and international networks, to provide business opportunities and financing for entrepreneurs who apply to our program.
