At its most basic level, entrepreneurship is about creating, growing and providing. In other words, fundamental human nature. And while some like to think pursuit of the American Dream is a uniquely American thing, the reality is that entrepreneurship knows no borders. With the right support and resources, businesses can flourish almost anywhere on the planet. This is part of the guiding philosophy behind the Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship - Caribbean, which opened to great fanfare on Sept. 8 in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
The Branson Centre, a facility that provides training, mentorship and opportunities for young entrepreneurs in the region, was established by Virgin Unite, the non-profit foundation of Richard Branson's Virgin Group, in partnership with Virgin Holidays. Branson, a member of the HuffPost Small Business Board of Directors, invited us to tag along for the opening. Now, we invite you to take a tour of the Branson Centre.
