Are you working on the next big idea?
The Idea Advisory Service (IAS) provides the opportunity to all citizens of Trinidad and Tobago to get assistance in the development of their idea from conception to commercialisation. The IAS is funded over the next three years by the IDB (Inter-American Development Bank) and CARIRI, and aims to support both firms and individuals. Applicants can expect to benefit from workshops and seminars and gain valuable assistance in determining proof of novelty, protection of idea, market demand for the idea and the development of pretotypes
