Youth Minister of Barbados Challenges Local Entrepreneurs to focus on Sports & Technology
Stephen Lashley delivered the Opening Remarks for a Breakfast meeting held by the B’dos Youth Business Trust at the US Embassy in Wildey, St Michael. The BYBT’s focus this year was on Male Entrepreneurs, for 2009 the focus was at females.
He called for young male Barbadians to come forward and create new technology for mobile phones and also equipment for Road Tennis Tournaments. Road Tennis is an indigenous sport to Barbados and many feel it should be copyrighted but the problem is where do the royalties go.
The Motivational Keynote was given by Derek Browne of www.theeia.com (Video soon to be uploaded) and a Panel Discussion with four young male Entrepreneurs – 3 Bajan & 1 Dominican – which was moderated by Andy Armstrong, the President of the B’dos Chamber of Commerce & Industry.
