Supporting the Turks and Caicos Islands’ budding entrepreneurs
Leader of OCTA Innovation, Milan Jezic von Gesseneck, has discussed support for a workshop to further the business skills of young people in Turks and Caicos.
It was one of the subjects raised at a meeting between Mr Jezic von Gesseneck and Innovation Manager of Turks and Caicos, Alexa Cooper-Grant with Young Corporate Alliance (YCA) on October 27th.
The OCTA Innovation Leader suggested a workshop could focus on learning from best practice: business incubators and accelerators, the green economy and certification.
YCA is building the business acumen of young professionals and entrepreneurs between the ages of 18 and 35 in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
Its activities include forging partnerships with private sector bodies and business leaders and organising workshops and lectures to share knowledge and empower the island’s rising economic operators.
It has enlisted law firms, banks, marketing specialists, and insurance companies to offer discount rates to young locals with a YCA membership during their first year in business.
