Jamaica News: The Jamaica Business Development Corporation (JBDC) is inviting entrepreneurs to register for its Lunch and Learn event scheduled for October 30 at The Knutsford Court Hotel in New Kingston.

Speaking with the JIS News, Business Development Officer at the JBDC, Colin Coley, said that the session will enable new and aspiring entrepreneurs to learn from established business people.

“Established entrepreneurs will provide insight on their journey into entrepreneurship by sharing the pitfalls and challenges they encountered along the way.

“They will also provide information on managing expectations when in business as well as tips on growing existing markets and entering new ones,” he noted.

Mr Coley said that Lunch and Learn will also provide an avenue for networking.

“When up-and-coming entrepreneurs network with established entrepreneurs they will get a chance to learn from them and also establish important contacts that can be relevant to their business,” he said.

Former Chief Executive Officer of GraceKennedy Limited, Douglas Orane, will deliver the main address at the event. He will speak on the theme, ‘Effective Management of Businesses within the MSME Sector’.
