The Business Incubator & Accelerator program consists of incubator and accelerator programs. The Incubator Programme will provide a safe and controlled environment for 6 creative entrepreneurs to develop their business ideas, approaches, opportunities and solutions. It will:
• Provide high potential creative entrepreneurs with workspace, training sessions and mentorship to achieve product market fit.
• Provide entrepreneurs with sound tools and frameworks to analyze their ideas, approaches, opportunities and solutions.
Our Accelerator Programme will focus on improving business and technology skills for 10 creative entrepreneurs to increase sustainability and capacity. Although local, the programme will be assisting entrepreneurs to take advantage of global opportunities. It will:
• Provide high potential creative entrepreneurs with capacity development through training and mentorship
• Provide entrepreneurs with sound analysis frameworks and tools to leverage specific opportunities available to them internationally
The application process opens on August 9th and closes on August 23rd. Applicants will be notified on a rolling basis.
The Accelerator programme starts on August 30th. The Incubator programme starts on September 1st. Both programmes are 10 weeks. Participants should be willing to commit 10 hours per week. It is suggested you apply to both if you are uncertain about which program is best for you.

Kingston Creative is a nonprofit arts organisation started in 2017 by a team of three co-founders who believe in using Art and Culture to achieve social and economic transformation. We want to see the city of Kingston leverage its creative heritage, its world-class talent and reach its potential to become a Creative City, not just in name or by UNESCO designation, but for this to be a reality for all who live in Kingston. We envision a safe and vibrant Art District in Downtown Kingston, a Creative Hub that develops and trains people and long-term, a healthy creative ecosystem in Jamaica. We are a small, voluntary organisation, and we recognise that this is a huge vision, but it is certainly a vision worth working towards.
