TEN Habitat spreading their wings across the Caribbean
The Entrepreneurship Network (TEN Habitat) is looking to do more for the entrepreneurs in Barbados and the region in 2020, and in order to facilitate this, they will venturing farther into the Caribbean and relocating their Barbados-based headquarters.
This was revealed by Founder of TEN Habitat, Selwyn Cambridge, during a recent interview with The Barbados Advocate.
“We are also going to add two additional locations in the region in 2020, and we will be coming onstream with a brand new location for TEN Habitat itself,” he said.
He explained that they were searching for a new location because there was “a lot more we want to do, there’s a lot more we want to offer in the community and right now our location presents some limitations.”
Cambridge noted that it was their aim to have TEN Habitat be seen as and to become the home for entrepreneurs and innova-tors. As such, Cambridge said those persons would need to be able to see the headquarters as their home that they could “come and go as they please”.
He went on to note that for the new year, TEN Habitat was also seeking to start developing their capacity and expand it beyond supporting entrepreneurs, by helping them build technical skills and aptitudes and build scalable ventures. Additionally, he said they also want to be able to start funding their entrepre-neurs. It is against this backdrop, he revealed, that they are working on developing an early seed venture fund which will help financially support the ideas that they help entrepreneurs to develop.
In addition to that, Cambridge noted that they were big on partnering with other entrepreneurship organisations in Barbados. To that end, he indicated that they are currently in discussion with such entities about establishing memoranda of under-standing and/or partnerships to aid in
the development of entrepreneurs.
