Global Water Partnership-Caribbean (GWP-C) 2024 Young Caribbean Water Entrepreneurs Shark Tank Competition ( US$4,000 in Seed Funding) 

Application Deadline: August 4th, 2024,

The Young Caribbean Water Entrepreneurs Shark Tank Competition seeks to provide a unique opportunity for young persons from the Caribbean, aged 18 to 34 years, to pitch innovative and impactful water-related project ideas to support better water resources management in their community, country or the Caribbean region.

Global Water Partnership-Caribbean (GWP-C) has recognised for many years the critical importance of creating avenues for young people to become involved in water governance and management ventures. Development challenges in the Caribbean will ultimately be inherited by the region’s youth. Young people are solution providers and have ideas and energy to act for sustainable development. GWP-C therefore sees the importance of empowering young people to be agents of change in contributing to and advancing Caribbean water security.

Through GWP-C’s work and interaction with its youth partners and young people within water and related sectors, it is evident that they often do not have access to funding or resources to easily advance their project ideas. Additionally, they do not always have easy access to technical support to turn their ideas into fully workable projects.

 It is, therefore, with great pleasure that GWP-C announces the launch of its 2024 “Young Caribbean Water Entrepreneurs Shark Tank Competition.” This is the fourth time the competition is being held, the first being in 2019, the second in 2020 and the third in 2022.
