Caribbean Cluster Initiative for Animation Outsourcing and Intellectual Property Development
The objective of this measure is to build the capacity of the Caribbean Animation Cluster to deliver world class animation services, and in doing so, to establish the Caribbean as a competitive supplier of animation production and post-production services.
The Regional Animation cluster (Barbados, Jamaica) of the Caribbean Cluster Initiative for Animation Outsourcing and Intellectual Property Development is a sub-project of Compete Caribbean. Compete Caribbean is a private sector development program that provides technical assistance grants and investment funding to firms and entrepreneurs to take a chance on an innovative, risky business idea in an attempt to improve the revenue performance and competitiveness of the firm. The program is jointly funded by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the United Kingdom Department for International Development (DFID) and the Government of Canada.
The expected results of this measure are an increased capacity and capability of the cluster members to bid on international outsourcing animation projects, and increased activity in promoting and marketing their services globally.
The total project cost is $630,800 USD (Compete Contribution: $500,000 USD).
