About Project X 

Project X is an initiative of the Barbados Entrepreneurship Foundation, a charitable non-governmental organization focused on the development of a sustainable entrepreneurial culture in Barbados, for which Bitt Digital Inc. is the title sponsor and technology partner.

a collaborative space

a democratic experiment
in micro-funding

a forum for critical but
accessible discussion

a platform for connection and
the exchange of ideas

a way to support entrepreneurs
and MSMEs in Barbados

an opportunity to learn about
innovative business solutions

Through the collaborative efforts of these entities and their other strategic partners, it is

expected that outcomes from Project X will include:

Access to micro-funding
 

given that innovative businesses/projects will have an opportunity to obtain small grants based on support from fellow entrepreneurs and MSMEs.

Exposure to an innovative

digital payments solution
 

such as its mMoney Wallet and Merchant/Teller applications which will be the method of payment for all Project X contributions.

Business mentorship and networking
 

by serving as a safe space within which to build relationships with like-minded individuals and support one another not just financially but through feedback on specific ideas.

Access to additional training and development


through sensitivity to the existence and efforts of the Barbados Agency for Micro Enterprise Development Limited (FundAccess), Barbados Coalition of Service Industries (BCSI), Barbados Investment and Development Corporation (BIDC), Barbados Manufacturers Association (BMA), Barbados Youth Business Trust (BYBT), Small Business Association (SBA), Student Entrepreneurial Empowerment Development Project of UWI (SEED), Ten Habitat and the Youth Entrepreneurship Scheme (YES) pursuant to a signed memorandum of understanding among them.

Resource boards


via which attendees can make further contributions so that each presenter (and even other attendees) can leave the event with support, ideas, volunteers and/or community resources to advance their business/project whether or not they get the most votes.

Facilitation and encouragement of MSME B2B


by bringing entrepreneurs and MSMEs together in one room and encouraging them to work together and form business-to-business (B2B) arrangements that can help to grow one another.

Crowdfunding has never been so satisfying!
