StartUp to ScaleUp: Business ideas turn to reality for Trinidad entrepreneurs | Features

The City of Trinidad, the Center for Community Innovation and The Leeds School of Business at The University of Colorado Boulder hosted a business workshop called “Demystifying Entrepreneurship – StartUp to ScaleUp” during the weekend of July 23-24.
