Business Labs

Organization(s)/Affiliation(s): 
Young Americas Business Trust

The concept of the Business Labs emerged from a Trinidadian project undertaken by the Organization of American States, the Ministry of Education in Trinidad and Tobago. The Minister of Education thought that the way in which schools utilize laboratories to provide practical experience in the areas of science, could be applied to business education, thus adding a new dimension to the current theoretical approach.

Loden Entrepreneurship Programme

The Loden Foundation

As thousands of educated young people leave school and college each year, Bhutan is facing an unprecedented problem of unemployment. The private sector is still a fledgling and the civil service is over-suscribed. With a money-oriented economy sweeping across the region, there is a need for a socially responsible and ethical entrepreneurial culture. LEP was launched in order to give a helping hand to hundreds of young people who are searching for guidance and support to create businesses and employment in the new economic climate.
