Jamaica and the Caribbean are full of innovative, ambitious entrepreneurs. Many of them have businesses that can change the world, but with banking rules restrictive and unaffordable interest rates unattainable, getting the funding to get these businesses off the ground has been proven challenging.
Enter Esther Ventures – an early stage venture capital firm focused on accelerating innovative Caribbean enterprises in the Technology, Services and Consumer sectors.
A game changer, Esther Ventures was established in 2016 with the vision of positively impacting the Caribbean business landscape by supporting companies in a way that is Caribbean reality focused. Getting funding from Esther Ventures is a simple 6-step process. Make initial contact, submit documents, allow for initial review, meet the team, due diligence is done and then if everything checks out, closing.
Esther Ventures is unique because of the support system that comes with partnering with the firm. We don’t just disburse checks, we provide administrative and strategic support as well as marketing and mentorship that young entrepreneurs need to build successful businesses.
The principals of Esther Ventures are entrepreneurs themselves and they know what it takes to build a business from the ground up. They have a wealth of experience that expands beyond the funding and this will only help to develop up and coming entrepreneurs as they build their own businesses.
“Esther is about the entrepreneur, it’s about creating an enabling environment in a Caribbean context” Javette Nixon, Managing Partner, Esther Ventures.
