TROPICS MAGAZINE will be revealing its 11th TROPICS TOP 500 POWER LIST this coming October at the TROPICS BUSINESS SUMMIT. Since 2010, TROPICS MAGAZINE has ranked the Most Powerful Business Personalities using the following criteria: the size and importance of each business in the global economy; the health and direction of the business; the arc of their career; and their social and cultural influence.

After 5 years of existence, TROPICS BUSINESS SUMMIT has designed a completely new, customized accelerator program, based on our TROPICS BUSINESS SUMMIT and TROPICS BUSINESS MIXER(S) playbook. We accelerate African and Caribbean Startups that have already validated their business model and are ready for fast growth.

Testimonials

The startup landscape is looking a lot different today than it was a few years ago. With institutions and investors supporting the Tropics Business Summit’s vision and open to innovation, we're seeing great opportunities for startups to leverage their ideas for achieving further growth. Localized startups will define the next growth in geographies like Africa and the Caribbean regions, and other emerging markets using digital for scaling their presence.

Dina Mendes
<CEO and Founder of HD Consulting/>

Since October 2017, Tropics Business Summit has always been great in the sense that the quality of businesses that attend are outstanding. We are already witnessing outcomes from the summit. We have one business that has signed a lease and plans to invest in Congo for the long run. And, this is incredible for our economy.
