Event description
Celebrate Youth Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Guyana: Introducing the 2019 Guyana Innovation Prize

About this Event

The Guyana Economic Development Trust (GEDT) (www.theguyanatrust.org) believes in the transformative impact of investing in research ideas with commercial promise developed by intelligent and talented young people from the University of Guyana. We are thrilled to provide these exceptional young people with the opportunity to develop into business leaders of the future, right in Guyana.

The Organization

GEDT is an independent, U.S.-based philanthropic organization that supports early stage enterprise and 21st-Century sills development in Guyana. Through venture philanthropy-– a business-minded approach involving long-term, non-equity initial investments and strategic management—The Trust aims to achieve transformative goals by incubating and supporting projects that boost the private sector of Guyana.

Supporting Innovation and Entrepreneurship

The Guyana Innovation Prize, a project of GEDT, awards pre-seed funding to commercially viable research in agro-processing and tech from students, alumni, and faculty of the University of Guyana. The Prize is awarded annually, with 2018-19 being the inaugural year. Funds will be awarded to the most commercially viable research in order to fund production and distribution for awaiting clients.

Bring your business cards and join us for us in Downtown Brooklyn, New York for the inaugural Awakening the Jaguar: Guyana Innovation Prize Venture Fellows Cocktail Reception for hors d'oeuvres, drinks, live music and DJ, networking, and to hear more about the paradigm-shifting innovative enterprises launching in Guyana today.
