From Idea to Action: a Mini Lab teaches youth in Grenada about Entrepreneurship

On October 1st, 2013, the Young Americas Business Trust (YABT) in partnership with the Ministry of Youth, Sport and Ecclesiastic Affairs of Grenada conducted a Mini Business Lab Workshop: From Idea to Action for 56 young people at the Grenada Youth Center. The objective of the workshop was to support youth empowerment and profitable employment and open doors for youth participation in the community development activities.

From Idea to Action are 1-day workshops that are designed to give their participants an overview on the development of a business model and encourage them to think as entrepreneurs. While providing hands-on tools, Mini Business Labs are strongly focused on the creation of ideas and brainstorming. These are a first step towards the development of an entrepreneurial spirit – later honed within the framework of the 5-day Business Lab workshops and further improved in the preparation stages for the Caribbean Innovation Challenge (CIC) submissions.

The Workshop was facilitade by YABT's representative in the Caribbean, Ms. Akarda Ventour. Mr. Alva Renaud, Small Business Officer from the Ministry of Youth of Grenada commented upon the completion of the workshop: "Thanks so much for an absolutely wonderful workshop and presentation. It was exceptionally well suited for our just started business participants. I have also learnt at the end of the day, working together as a team in unity makes achieving goals much easier."

YABT and our partners will continue providing training to young people in the region. Please find the upcoming workshops and registration contacts below; however, we encourage you to check back frequently as more opportunities will be announced soon.
