THE Vincent HoSang UWI Venture Competition finals and awards ceremony took place recently at The UWI Regional Headquarters. The competition was first introduced in November 2002 with the objective of encouraging members of The UWI community to use their talents and skills to harness ideas and opportunities that can be grown into full-fledged businesses.
Students from across all faculties participate in an effort to unleash their creative and innovative ideas. The JMMB Joan Duncan Foundation is among the major corporate sponsors of the competition, in keeping with its commitment to support youth entrepreneurship.
