Caribbean countries have been consistently ranked low for innovation and competitiveness. According to the Global Competitiveness Report 2015-2016, the highest performing Caribbean country was ranked 86th out of 144 countries.
Apart from other issues reported, the following consistently feature as problematic factors:
The Caribbean is full of intelligent, creative and innovative young people, eager to make their mark on the world. We have seen, through our 10 years of experience with Teleios Code Jam - an internationally acclaimed youth technology development programme, how empowering youth to solve real world problems can bear much fruit. It's a sustainable solution and it augurs well for the future of the Caribbean.
We engage a multi-stakeholder audience to shift things in areas that matter.
Governments identify key service delivery problems to be solved
Tertiary institutions identify students to be part of initiative
Students learn to build scalable citizen-focused solutions using the Teleios QuikWorx platform
Students design and implement solutions to deliver value to citizens and visitors
If you want to accelerate the capacity-building in your country, then send us a line. We want to hear from government ministers, leaders of state agencies and other government interest groups.
