I was very pleased to accept BIBA’s invitation to make a presentation on: “Entrepreneurship – A Way Forward for Sustainable Development”. CBET focuses on start-up businesses which are part of the emerging private sector. I pointed out that I developed a passion for enterprise development over the last 14 years but first thought that I should address the definitions of Sustainable Development and Entrepreneurship.

When I was working on the “Compelling Case” document to do with re-organising the Barbados development agencies, I produced a proposal for the establishment in Barbados of The International Centre for Research, Development and Distribution of Digital Solutions for Island Communities. Underpinning this Institution would be a strong university faculty of software engineering, the absolutely vital skill required for the digital age industries. I scoped it out, put a cost on it and approached a philanthropist for the funds to get it going. He said ‘yes. No problem’. And that is where it all ended.
