Entrepeneurism should be Mandatory, Launch of BEF $20 Challenge 2016
The Barbados Entrepreneurship Foundation is determined for the 20 Dollar Challenge to be adopted into the curricula of all schools across the island as a means of improving academic performance and to reduce any potential to delinquency or worse…
It was noted for this year’s challenge, the Barbados Industrial and Development Corporation assisted with providing a training manual based on reports from previous years by students who undertook the drive.
This as Barbados’ leading telecoms provider is ready once again to continue their support for the 20 Dollar Challenge – where students are loaned 20 dollars and have 6 weeks to develop it into a profit, part of that profit going into a charity donation.
The goal of the BEF is to see Barbados become an entrepreneurial hub by the year 2020, another goal was to achieve 100% Wi-Fi penetration for the country by November 2011 when it was under the stewardship of Peter Boos.
