StartupLabGY to transform ideas into sustainable solutions
As part of Global Entrepreneurship Week activities, StartuplabGY was recently launched in Guyana with an innovation and entrepreneur curriculum to transform ideas into a sustainable solution.
StartupLabGY is an Innovation Accelerator Programme that was designed by Trifinity Solutions to develop, test and grow new business ideas through social entrepreneurship by identifying social problems, design innovative solutions, generating prototypes to validate their effectiveness, and develop business models that support their solution.
Trifinity Solutions is a digital media agency ‘Transforming Ideas into Solutions’. It was founded by Queens Young Leader 2017, Samantha Sheoprashad.
