Undergraduate Hyperion Council Continues to Make a Difference in Jamaica
July 27, 2009
Rosalea Hamilton, Chair in Entrepreneurship and Development, UTech, explains the results of pre-tests conducted among participants in the Jamaica Project.
In July, 61 small and medium-sized enterprise owners and operators were certified in entrepreneurship at ceremonies in Kingston and Montego Bay. The ceremonies marked the end of an eight-week training program that was supported by materials developed by business students for last year’s Jamaica Project. Members of the Hyperion Council will be working with program participants this fall to answer questions and act as mentors as the new entrepreneurs apply new found business knowledge. The project was delivered by the Human Employment and Resource Training Entrepreneurial Skills Development Unit in collaboration with the Scotiabank Chair in Entrepreneurship and Development and the University of Technology, Jamaica.
