In 2002, the Government of Trinidad & Tobago established the National Entrepreneurship Development Company Limited (NEDCO) with a mandate to develop small and micro businesses whose needs could not be met by traditional lending agencies. Trinidad & Tobago’s economic success rests on our ability to diversify the economy and develop a thriving class of successful entrepreneurs. That’s where NEDCO comes in: it helps you take your small or micro business idea from a dream to reality by giving you the skills, training and financial support you need to run a successful business.
NEDCO is focused on the development of the entrepreneur, not just the development of the business. It empowers you with the necessary skills to make your entrepreneurial dreams a reality. It is a “one-stop-shop” for all necessary support services and it sees its clients’ ideas through to realization.
It assesses prospective clients to determine their stage of business readiness. Whether you are not certain what business you would like to get into, have a great business idea but don’t know what to do next, need help to take your business idea further or want to expand a business that you’ve already started, NEDCO tailors its services to your needs.
