ABOUT US

The Story Begins...

Bimtee Web Logo I am Dwayne Clarke, Developer of Bimtee.com. An idea developed while attending the University of the West Indies - summer 2007 - from the discomfort of my dismantled computer chair, at least one of them, somewhere on the island of Barbados. I love to peruse the internet, often in seek of motivation from other parts of the world; specifically advancements in technology or research in technology or new innovations or architecture...you get the idea. As I come across articles about dropouts from Harvard creating Microsoft and Facebook or dropouts from Illinois creating Oracle or dropouts from Reed Colleges creating Apple Computers, I wonder what the PHD graduates from the University of the West Indies are creating, must be big, I can't wait, it is taking an awful long time, hope it is really good.

I enjoy the relationship between technology, design and business; a relationship which is positively influenced by the enthusiasm, patriotism, discomfort, competitiveness, discontent, pride, etc. of dropouts, graduates, governments and private companies alike, characteristics which are lacking in Bajan society.

If it is desired by the people of Barbados to become entrepreneurs, start new industries, and become global leader, we need to be at the forefront of technology. This can only happen if children embrace technology from an early age, understand their goals and how they can be met, and have the ability to manipulate their knowledge to achieve these goals. At the same time creating not only good scientist but the perpetuating culture that is required for these goals to reached by new generations.

So I developed www.bimtee.com, my first project aimed at developing e-commerce and the enthusiasm for the development of technology. I saw the opportunity to accelerate e-commerce in the Barbados and at the same time, provide a way to celebrate Bajan culture and craft through design. Bimtee.com started as an idea which evolved around the social behaviour of everyday shoppers; now more than ever Bajans are embracing technology which opens the door for young entrepreneurs who are creative, who have big ideas, and are not scared to fail.

Remember the movie Inception starring Leonardo DiCaprio, A dream within a dream... Bimtees are much like this; we create concepts within our general theme of Minimalism, Typography & Culture like our Guys & Girls™ shirts which consist of only blue and pink tees or our Accessotees™ where we accessorise the t-shirt with emblems. We strongly believe people appreciate simple yet aesthetically pleasing things. This idea births new concepts that we express through our apparel. Hopefully in 2011 this vision will be realised and echoed by the many patrons and supporters of our products.
