OAS Launches Small Business Development Center Model in Jamaica

The Organization of American States (OAS) yesterday launched the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Model in Jamaica, in a ceremony that took place in Kingston. The model, organized in partnership with Jamaica’s Ministry of Industry, Investment and Commerce, the Caribbean Export Development Agency and the University of Texas at San Antonio, focuses on one-one and long-term assistance to help clients generate sustained economic impact through the establishment of new businesses, job creation, and increases in sales and access to capital; the promotion of a results-oriented culture, as professionals are evaluated in terms of impact generated through client work; and the development of business and trade linkages among the clients of the different centers through tools such as the SBDCGlobal online platform.
