Serial entrepreneur Kirk-Anthony Hamilton, founder of The Infiniti Partnership Inc., has been honoured with the prestigious ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ Award in the emerging category by Ernst & Young (EY).

This recognition celebrates the Jamaican investor’s notable achievements in entrepreneurship, his innovative business model, and his commitment to pushing the boundaries of industry and commerce.

Hamilton founded the Destination Experience and the Visionaries’ Summit, is a co-founder of Tech Beach Retreat and is a founding managing partner in Novamed and Summit.

Under Hamilton’s leadership, the Infiniti Partnership has experienced significant growth and has played a crucial role in shaping the business landscape of Jamaica and the Caribbean. Hamilton’s strategic vision and commitment to a brighter future for the Caribbean have not only elevated his company but have also made a lasting impact on the community. An architectural designer turned entrepreneurial investor, Kirk-Anthony has built a strong reputation in the region for his strategy of leveraging the global community to connect capital and resources with opportunities in the Caribbean.

Participants in his internationally recognised platforms control more than US$140 billion in investment equity and the platforms have seeded well over US$300 million in investments for the Caribbean.  

“It’s an honour to receive such a significant recognition from Ernst & Young,” Kirk-Anthony Hamilton remarked. “This award is not just for me but for our whole team at our various ventures, especially my business partners Kyle Maloney, Dr David Walcott and Kevin Donaldson. It is a reflection of our combined dedication to excellence and our drive for innovation.”

The ‘EY Entrepreneur of the Year’ award is one of the most coveted in the business community, celebrating those who are building and leading successful, growing, and dynamic businesses. Hamilton was selected by an independent panel of international judges and received his award at a prestigious ceremony held at the Hyatt Zilara Resort in Montego Bay.

This accolade highlights Hamilton’s significant contributions, accomplishments and dedication to the mission of building a new global business ecosystem for the Caribbean and his continuous pursuit of excellence.

It adds to his already impressive list of recognitions, which include being celebrated as one of 75 Emerging Global Entrepreneurs by President Barack Obama at the White House and his placement on the World’s 100 Most Influential People of African Descent Under 40 list for 2022.
