Enterprise Cayman is a partnership between Cayman Enterprise City and the Cayman Islands Government and is designed to connect Caymanians with opportunities within the Special Economic Zones (SEZs). SEZs include, Cayman Tech City, Cayman Commodities & Derivatives City, and Cayman Maritime & Aviation City. The partnership’s primary focus is to help young Caymanians, including those who wish to re-tool for a career change, acquire the skills they need to fill the jobs that are being created within the SEZs. Other goals include raising local awareness of and interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) careers and, in partnership with the National Workforce Development Agency, helping high school and college students acquire the resume writing, job interview techniques and networking skills needed to pursue STEM careers. Additionally, Enterprise Cayman offers an annual summer internship program aimed at young people ages 17 to 25, hosts an online jobs portal, supports the University College of the Cayman Islands’ STEM initiatives, facilitates a computer coding club and is in the process of establishing a code academy in the Cayman Islands.
Enterprise Cayman was developed to connect local talent with opportunities within the Cayman Enterprise City special economic zones. We see this as an important driver in the strategic development of talent within the Cayman Islands and in the future diversification and development of Cayman’s economy.
