About Us

The Centre for Local Business Development (Centre) is Guyana’s leading source for oil and gas business and industry information, professional development and networking. Since 2017, it has been meeting the growing demands of Guyanese businesses by offering training, mentoring for growth, and procurement linkages.

It continues to broaden its reach and services to spur local competitiveness and drive economic growth. The Centre’s inclusive approach helps Guyanese businesses benefit from offshore oil and gas opportunities while maximizing their skills development and transfer of technology.


The Centre’s Accelerate-Her is a newly launched women entrepreneurship programme offering an exciting opportunity for Guyanese women to access business acceleration workshops and professional mentoring to grow their businesses.
