Corporations and Government Agencies Embrace GEW 2016
On Wednesday 27th April, 2016 the Saint Lucia Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture, host organization for Global Entrepreneurship Week St. Lucia, hosted the first Advisory Board and Partners’ meeting at the Bay Gardens Hotel. The purpose was to get a headstart for the successful celebration of GEW 2016.
This year GEW will be celebrated from November 14th to 20th, under the theme “Harnessing the Entrepreneur In You-(th).” Over 189 countries will champion the compass – the GEW logo – connecting millions of people around the world to a movement of entrepreneurial champions and advocates. Beyond providing that connection, the compass increases awareness of partner organizations and its leadership in promoting entrepreneurship in the community, the country and the world.

During the meeting, recommendations were made to pool together existing resources to increase communication, coordination, and collaboration across efforts to support young entrepreneurs. The Ministry of Commerce, Business Development, Investment & Consumer Affairs’ Business Month has been rescheduled from September to November to coincide with the GEW celebration. It was recognized that through these efforts a movement can be started in Saint Lucia to accelerate the creation of new startups, job creation and an entrepreneurship movement.
The Saint Lucia Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture would like to thank all members of the Advisory Board for their willingness to support GEW St. Lucia as their involvement will ensure that GEW St. Lucia goes from strength to strength. Invitations are extended to all organizations island-wide to become partners in recognition of GEW 2016 and to encourage them to attend monthly meetings as we plan for a successful celebration. The next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday 25th May, 2016 at the Bay Gardens Hotel.
