The Technology Innovation Centre (TIC) was established in 2002 as the first Business Incubator in the English-speaking Caribbean. The Centre's goal is "to promote economic growth through entrepreneurship and the development and commercialisation of technology." To date the incubation programme of the TIC has positively impacted the development of twenty-four (24) small businesses. In 2005, two incubated companies received national awards and recognition for Best Innovation, the Popularisation of Science & Technology and Information Communication Technology.
