ABOUT

 

TEN Habitat is the response to a growing need for a more inclusive approach to how Caribbean startups are supported and funded.

 

TEN Habitat focuses on developing investor-ready startups by exposing them to a range of hands-on support that is all about building businesses. Our global network of experts, mentors and coaches help founders move their ideas from concept to reality and then we mobilize the diaspora to invest in those businesses.

 

We pride ourselves on building a supportive community around Caribbean entrepreneurs that allows innovative ideas to emerge and be transformed into viable ventures capable of attracting funding.

We believe in nurturing the growth of entrepreneurs, the way nature nurtures’ its young- In habitats.
