and Business development
Your Business Gateway
As the main gateway for the provision of entrepreneurial and business development services in Grenada, we provide technical assistance, training and entrepreneurial and business development services as well as implement projects to facilitate the start-up, growth and expansion of Micro, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (MSMEs).
Through our services and assistance programs, we focus on fostering a spirit of entrepreneurship, encouraging the start-up of new enterprises, and facilitating the growth, expansion, and export readiness of existing Micro, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (MSMEs) throughout Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique.
In 2016, through an Act of Parliament, the corporation was rebranded as the Grenada Investment Development Corporation to better convey our mandate as a catalyst for change and investment in Grenada. We were subsequently incorporated into the ‘Pure Grenada’ brand, with approval from the Grenada Hotel and Tourism Association (GHTA).
Through this rebranding initiative, the respective Strategic Business Units (SBUs) took on the names Pure Investment, Pure Business, and Pure Facilities , with the aim of promoting the country’s ‘Pure Grenada’ image in external and foreign markets.
Our adoption into the Pure brand represents a change in vision from an industrial development organisation to an economic development one playing a key role in “Empowering the Spice Isle”.

“I would certainly advise any investor to consider Grenada, this country is filled with investment opportunities. There is warm weather, a great pool of talent and a government who is leading the way in creating an investor friendly environment for all businesses to flourish. Our experience so far has been a positive one and something that we will be looking to build upon over the coming years!”

The Renegade Rum Distillery is located in Conference, St. Andrew. Construction on the rum distillery commenced in 2019 and in September 2020, the first cask of Renegade Rum was filled. Using CaneCo’s premium Grenadian-grown sugar cane, the rum distillery is expected to produce up to 1 million liters of spirit each year.
“Renegade Rum Distillery first approached the Grenada Industrial [Investment] Development Corporation in mid 2016 to seek their assistance with their planned investment of US$50 million in a state of the art rum distillery, and the reintroduction of sugar cane as a major crop for Grenada. They quickly assisted in introducing us to the officials at the Ministry of Agriculture, and gave us details of what government assistance could be forthcoming for our project. While the negotiation with the Government took longer than expected, the employees of GIDC helped to keep us connected and were the glue that held the project together.”

“Real Estate Development is a difficult practice with a myriad of moving parts and challenges. The success of any project is a product of intelligent and experienced planning coupled with supportive and knowledgeable team. Though my company and the GIDC are separate entities, I consider them a part of my team integral to the success of having been able to complete my development in record time. Their enthusiasm, professionalism, entrepreneurship, and ability to respond quickly continues to be a blessing and one of the main reasons that I will continue to develop real estate projects in Grenada.”
