Thirty young entrepreneurs under the age of 30 will be recognized as examples of youth success in entrepreneurship.  They will be accepted as a cohort for business support by the OECS Competitive Business Unit; receive mentorship to aid their professional and business development; receive technical assistance; and be assisted in sourcing markets and financial assistance.

Entrepreneurs can be from any discipline or industry, including but not limited to, Art and Fashion Design, Business, Technology, Agriculture, Sustainable Development, Social Development, and Entertainment. All entrepreneurs despite business size, years of operation, and business industry will be considered. Entrepreneurs must be 30 years old or younger at the time of nomination, and be a citizen or resident of an OECS Member State.

Through its Youth Empowerment Strategy (YES), the OECS Commission opened nominations for its 30 Under 30 in Entrepreneurship initiative in November of 2016. While nominations have been pouring-in,  the OECS has decided to reopen the process with the goal of having nominations be more representative of the region by encouraging nominations from Antigua, Dominica, St. Kitts, BVI, Montserrat and Martinique.

The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) is an International Organisation dedicated to economic harmonisation and integration, protection of human and legal rights, and the encouragement of good governance among independent and non-independent countries in the Eastern Caribbean. The OECS came into being on June 18th 1981, when seven Eastern Caribbean countries signed a treaty agreeing to cooperate with each other while promoting unity and solidarity among its Members. The Treaty became known as the Treaty of Basseterre, so named in honour of the capital city of St. Kitts and Nevis where it was signed. The OECS today, currently has ten members, spread across the Eastern Caribbean comprising Antigua and Barbuda, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, St Vincent and The Grenadines, British Virgin Islands, Anguilla and Martinique.
