Business for Creatives


Creative Business Development
Starts HERE!


The Business Development Department of NCF stimulates the growth of the cultural and creative industries of Barbados through the implementation of effectively designed strategies for the promotion and marketing of our creative cultural goods, services and experiences.

Current Initiative

Our Vision

To establish the cultural and creative industries as a leading economic driver in Barbados through the introduction of economic stimuli including investment and tax incentives into the industry; increasing export and trade activity for creative goods & services and working with our partners in facilitating the establishment of Barbadian creative and cultural brands for large scale commercial activity.

How We Work

Assist in the promotion of creative goods, services, and experiences towards the growth of large scale commercial activity locally and internationally in the cultural industries.

Investment & Incentives
Via legislative action, the NCF acts as the intermediary between customs and creatives by facilitating the process of tax incentives and attractive returns for investors designed to encourage the growth of creative businesses and projects to stimulate the cultural industries.

Support & Monitor
With the establishment of the National Artistes Registry, the launch of the cultural industries mapping programme and the creation of product development programmes with our partners, the NCF has moved towards the collation of data designed to impact positively on how we do business, contributing to the enhancing of our competitiveness as a commercially viable industry.
