Welcome to the MECC EAB Agricultural Project Application Portal!
About the Project:
The MECC EAB Agricultural Project is a collaboration between the Mona Entrepreneurial and Commercialization Centre (MECC) and Entrepreneurs Across Borders (EAB) and funded by the Development Bank of Jamaica (DBJ) . The aim is to improve productivity and efficiency within the agricultural sector, foster innovation, and promote sustainable agricultural practices. By working together, MECC and EAB aim to provide the necessary support and resources for emerging entrepreneurs in agriculture to thrive and contribute to the overall growth and sustainability of the industry.
MECC is proud to work alongside Entrepreneurs Across Borders (EAB), a global not-for-profit organization that identifies, curates, and connects emerging entrepreneurs in developing areas with the resources they need to create jobs, sustainable livelihoods, and equitable growth. EAB believes that entrepreneurs play a critical role in strong and stable communities. Their invaluable expertise and resources will be instrumental in driving the success of the MECC EAB Agricultural Project. Learn more about EAB and their initiatives by visiting their website here.
