SALCC Plays its Part in GEW 2017

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The Busi­ness Depart­ment of the Sir Arthur Lewis Com­mu­nity Col­lege (SALCC) is set to stage a three-day En­ter­prise event to mark Global En­trepreneur­ship Week (GEW) which runs from 13th to 19th Novem­ber un­der the theme “Break­ing the Bound­aries – En­trepreneur­ship and You”.

GEW is a world­wide move­ment of en­trepreneurs stim­u­lat­ing the econ­omy by un­leash­ing their en­ter­pris­ing tal­ents and turn­ing their ideas into re­al­ity. It aims to in­spire the next gen­er­a­tion of en­trepreneurs and busi­ness lead­ers by build­ing and devel­op­ing their con­fi­dence and am­bi­tions.

En­trepreneur­ship is widely re­garded as the path­way through which en­ter­prises of all sizes are de­vel­oped, em­pow­er­ing in­di­vid­u­als to cre­ate value and wealth, thus gen­er­at­ing em­ploy­ment for them­selves and oth­ers, mov­ing from be­ing job seek­ers to job cre­ators.

As part of its con­tri­bu­tions to GEW, the SALCC will be­gin ac­tiv­i­ties on Mon­day, Novem­ber 13th with a sem­i­nar for stu­dents that will in­clude mo­ti­va­tional talks by young en­trepreneurs on their suc­cesses and chal­lenges. The stu­dents will also be chal­lenged with a Busi­ness Idea Gen­er­a­tion Com­pe­ti­tion on Tues­day, Novem­ber 14th that will yield some at­trac­tive prizes. The week will cul­mi­nate on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 15th with an En­trepreneur­ship Ex­hi­bi­tion from both stu­dent en­trepreneurs and busi­ness part­ners who will dis­play prod­ucts and ser­vices.

The aim of the ac­tiv­i­ties is to sen­si­tize stu­dents, fac­ulty and the gen­eral public to the ex­ist­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties and sup­port ser­vices that are avail­able for ven­ture cre­ation and sus­tain­abil­ity within Saint Lu­cia.
