Explore Enterprise

Explore Enterprise is an opportunity for young people in Jamaica to explore the intricacies of entrepreneurship and self-employment. Prince’s Trust International is proud to partner with the Jamaica Youth Business Trust to empower young people to make an informed decision about the opportunities available to them. We hope that this introduction to entrepreneurship and the subsequent 4-week one-to-one support available will encourage programme participants build their careers by exploring different routes to employment. We look forward to strengthening our relationship with JYBT in the coming months to increase our reach and build our programming so that aspiring young entrepreneurs are able to access a full suite of resources and start-up support.

What has been the value of Explore Enterprise for you?

"For me, getting my business plan, because you have so many ideas and not really sure how to really formulate everything and get it on paper. Tanesha was there to correct you every step of the way, so the business plan stood out for me, so that you can have everything in perspective. So that you can allow a good flowing business, that when you start, you know exactly how to start so that you can manage everything well, so that’s a good part for me."

“I gained further knowledge about business and how to successfully begin a venture along with the steps it takes”

“It taught me the ins and outs of operating a business especially from the legal and financial side of things”
