Dr. Danalyn Myvett, President of BCTD, 1 of 14 consultants to become certified by the World Bank as a Facilitator for the Women Innovators Network of the Caribbean (WINC) Acceleration Program implemented under InfoDev’s Entrepreneurship Program for Innovation in the Caribbean (EPIC). Funded by the Government of Canada, EPIC is a seven-year program that supports growth-oriented entrepreneurs in the region.
I am excited to be afforded this opportunity as it will benefit women entrepreneurs in Belize and across the Caribbean, says Dr. Myvett who is passionate about the empowerment of women through business.
This eight-month intensive Acceleration Program will provide women entrepreneurs with a comprehensive suite of support services to innovate their businesses, improve their competitiveness, and facilitate growth. It will comprise peer-learning, personal development, mentoring, technical workshops, and motivational sessions by relateable role models.
Program roll-out in Belize will commence in early 2016.
