Financial Information & Real-Time Matchmaking (FIRM) Expo.

The Financial Information & Real-Time Matchmaking (FIRM) Expo seems to be another recent effort to support business in Jamaica, and of course I applied as soon as I heard about it. So far I haven't heard anything but I'll be posting updates on how things go.

StartUp Jamaica is here!

Start-Up Jamaica is (according to their website) "an accelerator (a physical facility that takes equity in start-up technology companies that go through an intensive selection process, in return for seed capital, training and mentorship)". I applied to Start-Up Jamaica almost as soon as I heard about it. My application was rejected but I'm still excited to have an accelerator in Jamaica. I've checked out a few like TechStars and Y Combinator but I never expected to see one in Jamaica (at least not so soon).

Anyway, I just thought I would do my bit to promote Start-Up Jamaica.
