A release from the agency said that its focus this week, on Thursday 26th April, will be on residents in Old Road, with presentations designed to aid potential and current entrepreneurs as they explore how to write a business plan, securing financing options for small businesses, details on government’s incentive programme, among other topics.
Business Development Officer, Phillip Browne, noted that the first meeting held in Tabernacle, was quite successful. “It was well attended and the discussions were lively,” he explained, noting that there was a good balance between males and females as well as those in business and those wishing to be.
Twenty five persons attended the February meeting, representing various fields including tourism, agriculture, food and beverage, health and wellness, and IT services. Some attendees encouraged other persons in similar fields to work collaboratively and consider forming a cooperative.
Several of those persons have since visited the NEDD offices to get more insights as to how they can move a step closer to making their dreams a reality,” the business development officer revealed.
Officials from FirstCaribbean International Bank will join representatives of the Development Bank of St. Kitts and Nevis in making presentations at the gathering, slated for the Old Road Community Centre. Mr. Browne encouraged all interested to attend and participate freely at the meeting on Thursday.
