The CCEN
(Commonwealth Caribbean Enterprise Network)

is a London based social enterprise focussed on helping Caribbean businesses in the Caribbean and the UK to increase their competitiveness and export capability. We are non-affiliated and non-partisan but work closely with all Caribbean High Commissions as well as with a number of UK and international organisations, including the Commonwealth Secretariat and Department for International Trade.

Our vision is to be recognised as the leading provider of market intelligence and business facilitation services for small and medium sized Caribbean businesses based in the Caribbean as well as in the UK.

We are committed to building trust and effective collaboration – the keys, we believe, to competitiveness in the 21st century global marketplace.
