The IDB has partnered with Launch RockIt to host the upcoming Startup Weekend event from November 24th – 26th. Launch RockIt is a local nonprofit organization that has been organizing similar events in Trinidad and Tobago during the past few years. They are a community of passionate entrepreneurs focused on developing successful businesses. This will be the second time that the IDB Group has partnered with LaunchRockIt to host the T&T Startup Weekend event.

This year’s event is focused on ideas that provide solutions to national problems. We are inviting citizens to come up with solutions for real problems encountered in various sectors in Trinidad & Tobago, including:

  • Education

  • Health

  • Housing

  • Public Utilities

  • Sustainable Energy

  • And more!

Ideas are not limited to the categories listed and the categories above are only meant to give potential participants some direction when it comes to preparing their pitches. The finalists selected at the end of the weekend will be automatically entered into a second pitching event, where the finalists will compete for the chance to win up to US$10,000 each to implement their winning ideas.
