MEDIA NOTE

Applications are being accepted now for Caribbean Idea Marketplace matching grants.  The deadline for applications is May 31, 2012.  The Caribbean Idea Marketplace (CIM) is a business competition platform that encourages local Caribbean and diaspora entrepreneurs to forge partnerships around innovative projects that will generate employment and economic opportunities in the Caribbean region.  CIM will provide up to $100,000 in matching grants to each winning project.
