Barbadian entrepreneurs with innovative businesses have been encouraged to enter the 2018 Race for Space Competition.

Entrants will have the chance to win one year of free operating space in the BIDC’s Incubator Facility; website development, social media advertising, product development, mentorship with a leading industry specialist and complimentary entrance to the BIDC’s Innovate Barbados Conference, slated for November 7 and 8.
