“We are so incredibly honored and excited to announce the First Business & Cultural Expo celebrating Caribbean Culture and Entrepreneurship during Caribbean American Heritage Month” said Carib Biz Founder, Dr. Nicole Grimes. “After an unprecedented 2+years – especially for small Caribbean-owned businesses, we are looking forward to curating a space for families and the greater community can come to support Caribbean culture and small businesses.
“The Caribbean has been cited as the source of the United States’ earliest and largest Black immigrant group and the primary source of growth of the Black population in the U.S. With 1.29 million Caribbean nationals living in the tristate NY/NJ/PA area alone. Brooklyn just makes the most sense, it has been the mecca for all things Caribbean for as long as I can remember” – Partner Nneka Watkins.

- Owners of the popular Brooklyn-based vegan restaurant Aunts and Uncles , the CEO of Pod Digital Media , L’union Suite and Ten to One Rum are among the speakers.
