The University of the West Indies is undergoing a paradigm shift towards becoming an entrepreneurial university. As an academic university it is well positioned and highly successful with its ranking being amongst the top 5% globally however, the local and regional economic challenges over the last decade has led to the increasing need for the university to engage more with the business community and to establish new opportunities for business and enterprise.

The encouragement and support of viable, sustainable UWI spinouts from across all segments of the UWI is therefore important for the UWI’s long-term strategy. Through the establishment of three core resources, UWI Ventures, STACIE and the Entrepreneurship Unit, this can be achieved.
