Why the Name SiliconCaribe.com?
I believe that even as we are small as a region (a little over 40 million people), we’re quite powerful in terms of innovation and influence, so I created the Caribbean’s own derivative from the legacy that is Silicon Valley, which is a global synonym for all things high-tech and innovation.
