The Tobago House of Assembly Venture Capital Equity Fund Limited (VCEFL) is a venture capital company established by the Tobago House of Assembly (THA) in November 2010 in accordance with Venture Capital Act (1994). The focus of the Fund is on investments that support the eco-diversification mandate and which will be guided by the overall “clean, green, safe and serene” principle.

As part of the wider Tobago Business Development Strategy, the VCEFL follows on the Enterprise Assistance Grant and the Enterprise Assistance Loan. (See Link to myBDU.biz). The intention is to support and strengthen new and early stage qualified enterprises in public/private sector arrangements. The THA has set aside an amount of TT$25M up-front contribution to assist those Tobago businesses realize their aspirations in the economic diversification and development thrust.

With the establishment of the Fund, Tobago now has the opportunity to address its developmental challenges by crafting a venture capital climate that is indigenous, aggressive, forward-looking, and export-led. In a globalized environment for trade and commerce, Tobago’s venture capital institution must be creative in selecting, financing and eventually divesting those businesses that holds the most promise of a brighter tomorrow.
