EEZEE KRICKET to put Barbados on the world stage
BARBADOS (June 13, 2010) – A new, exciting and innovative cricket board game is promising to catapult Barbados onto the world stage with the help of today’s digital technology.
Bimventures company EeZee Kricket, a member of the Barbados Entrepreneurs’ Venture Capital Fund, plans to bowl their increasingly popular board game EeZee Kricket at a whole range of new wickets with applications for Facebook, iPhone and BlackBerry together with a Wii version, to share the Caribbean spirit of the game with a global audience.
Game creator Barbadian James Corbin revealed that his company is opening with an initiative to extend the popularity of the game internationally by forming strategic business partnerships in the major cricketing nations. “Our vision is to see EeZee Kricket become a household name in India, England, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, South Africa, and Australia,” he said, now that the company has successfully penetrated the local markets in Barbados, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago.
By making the game culturally adaptable to global markets, EeZee Kricket is able to have a wider appeal and in so doing, fly the Barbados flag in foreign markets while contributing to the economic development of the nation. EeZee Kricket games are currently being sold in the English-speaking CARICOM countries. EeZee Kricket has successfully partnered with Serious Cricket in the United Kingdom as its national distributor. The first units were shipped recently.
