Boosting Innovation, Growth and Entrepreneurship Ecosystem (BIGEE)

is a project financed by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) to be executed by the Development Bank of Jamaica (DBJ) with the vision to finance economic growth of MSMEs in Jamaica. 

The IDB has provided financing for other ecosystems, whose goal is to also promote innovation and entrepreneurship, and since have been reaping positive results (i.e. instrumental growth, employment, and innovation rates, from the financial support. 

The DBJ has assumed the role catalyst for initiatives that have significantly impacted MSME development over the years; this makes the institution a good fit to successfully implement the IDB’s vision for the project.
