The STAR Businessweek
This week we have quite the cross-pollination of stories to share with you. Our cover story focuses on a personal passion of mine— supporting entrepreneurship and nurturing a true culture of innovation in Saint Lucia. Of course, this is easier said than done, but nonetheless a worthy pursuit in my opinion. In “The Business of Business Incubators” I share my thoughts on the topic of accelerating growth for Caribbean entrepreneurs and why the typical copy/paste models of start-up incubation have gained such little traction in our region—and what we can do to fix it. Immigration, particularly UK immigration, is another focus area this week. STAR Businessweek correspondent Ed Kennedy draws striking comparisons between the UK’s flip-flop apology to the Windrush Generation with similarly tepid sorry-campaigns led in countries such as Australia and Canada. On the heels of last week’s story discussing the real risks of Citizenship by Investment Progammes becoming conduits from criminal activity—or safe havens for it—we’ve decided to syndicate a fascinating piece recently published by Investment Migration Insider titled “Alleged Drug Lords and Billion-Dollar Fraudsters – The CIP-Country Response”. As the saying goes, where there is sugar, there are bound to be ants. Read page 6 for more. Finally, it’s my pleasure to share that the STAR Businessweek article published in our June 16 2018 edition entitled “An Agricultural Revolution – How GreenTech is transforming the agricultural industry in Saint Lucia and beyond” has taken 2nd place in the 17th annual Massey Ferguson awards held in Brazil! Congratulations to the author Catherine Morris and a special thank you to our readers and advertisers who allow us to do this work week after week. We share this award with you all.
It’s Nothing Personal. It’s Business.
