Young Entrepreneurs Display Their Business Ideas GYBT Conference
As part of Global Entrepreneurship week which is being observed from November 14 to 21 the Guyana Youth Business Trust is hosting a two day conference for young entrepreneurs. The Conference is being held under the theme “inspire, Innovate, Imagination and Creativity” and is a joint Venture between the Guyana Youth Business Trust and the Inter-American Development Bank.
Chairman, Dr. Yesu Persaud said in order for young people to be successful they first have to be disciplined and dedicated to their business venture. The chairman noted that due to the high unemployment rate young people can become their own bosses while creating jobs for others.
The Inter-American Development Bank representative encouraged young people to use the two day session to help develop their business idea.
Two entrepreneurs used the opportunity at the conference to display their products and services. The young men believe the conference is beneficial as they strive to develop their individual ideas.
Every November Global Entrepreneurship Week is observed with the aim of helping young people turn their ideas into reality. The Guyana Youth Business Trust is a nongovernmental organization which seeks to assist young people in becoming entrepreneurs by providing financial assistance and mentoring.
