Our Work

The Guyana Economic Development Trust engages in Venture Philanthropy. Venture philanthropy tackles social problems in the same way that entrepreneurs and corporate leaders take on everyday business problems through long term commitment, making ongoing investments and using strategic management to achieve transformative goals. It is this business-minded approach to the projects undertaken that distinguishes the Guyana Economic Development Trust.  

Workforce Development

Preparing youth with 21st-Century skills for the future.

Enterprise Development

Championing the growth of startup and small businesses.

Innovation Prize

Supporting early stage tech and agro-processing businesses.
