The Accelerator Programme is designed to target high growth potential entrepreneurs whose businesses are ready to scale up. The programme is very fast-paced and intense and spans six (6) months. Fundamentally, it aims to identify, nurture, monitor and train Jamaican entrepreneurs with an overarching view of strengthening and increasing the global competitiveness of Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs). It utilizes the expertise and knowledge of JBDC's client interfacing departments as well as external partners such as mentors and advisors and is spearheaded by the Business Advisory Services (BAS) Unit of JBDC
