What is JGX Labs?
JGX Labs is an incubator based in Kingston, Jamaica focusing on early stage companies that can benefit the most from hands-on mentorship and guidance. We provide office space, legal support, and technical guidance (to name just a few things) so that companies can spend their first few months focused on building their business instead of worrying about the small stuff.
We ran an experimental 3 month summer program in 2013 that convinced us that there is ample technical talent in the country, and we think with the right guidance we can help build great companies in Kingston.
We are planning to run another summer program next year taking what we learned and trying it again.
