The Government’s vision for diversification hinges on supporting Kittitians and Nevisians to develop locally-based businesses. Entrepreneurs are the heart and soul of the St Kitts and Nevis economy now and in the future.

The National Entrepreneurial Development Division (NEDD) is a division dedicated to serving the needs of micro, small, and medium-size businesses. NEDD’s mandate is to help with the startup and development stages of small businesses in order to foster a more diverse economy and to give small business owners the tools they need to grow and sustain themselves in the long term.
