Bajan Tech Company To Help Caribbean Entrepreneurs

A Barbadian company aspiring to be one of the region’s leading media companies insist the plans aren’t “pie-in-the-sky illusions”.

In fact, Andrew Jemmott, managing director of Caribbean Webcast Inc., a Barbados-based, regional technology company, believes the goal is well within his company’s reach as it continues to help aspiring Caribbean film makers and videographers with content production and distribution.

“The Caribbean, and, in particular, Barbados, is investing significant time, energy and resources to develop the film and video industry. What has been missing is a major online distribution network … we are filling this void and expect to become a major player in the rapidly changing marketplace,” said an optimistic Jemmott, whose one year-old company also offers promotion and distribution services to the literary arts and music industries.

“I believe we can assume a leadership position in the region, and eventually the world, through hard work, regional and international networking, as well as providing the highest quality services possible,” contended the young entrepreneur who has been tinkering with computers since he was seven years old.

Caribbean Webcast Inc., a member of the BIM Ventures family of entrepreneurs, capitalizes on the exciting developments in new media by offering rich online content in the form of music videos, concerts and festivals, among other products.

With the increasing use of the Internet and social media for entertainment, information and advertising, the Barbadian company employs these outlets to unite the Caribbean region via a cross-cultural delivery of web content which showcases the best of Caribbean culture to the world.

Jemmott credits its “unique combination of technologies,” as central to Caribbean Webcast Inc.’s growing success. “We are constantly innovating,” asserted Jemmott whose team has satisfied clients through the building of cameras, computers and other equipment, skills associated with first world companies.

Caribbean Webcast, which provides content and programming in four languages – English, Spanish, Portuguese and French – streams and markets audio and video content, produces live webcasts, and offers artiste licensing and digital distribution services.
