GEW Launch/BizCamps - Global Entrepreneurship Week


Address by The Hon. Wayne Caines, JP, MP
Minister of National Security


03 November 2017

Good afternoon all,


I would like to take a brief moment to recognise the __ teenagers who took part in the Youth Entrepreneurship Initiative's BizCamps this summer. I would like to congratulate each one of you and recognise that what you are doing, in learning to launch a business, solve problems, and learn the ropes of entrepreneurship is not just good for you, it’s good for Bermuda’s future as well.

Bermuda can be proud of each of you for what you’ve achieved here: owning a business concept and seeing it through to a full business plan brings a sense of responsibility that will stay with you as you set yourself on a course to succeed. What you have learned in the process will be beneficial to you whatever career you chose, and whether you decide to start a business or not. You have learned about the fundamentals of opportunity recognition, costing of goods, pricing, and marketing to name
but a few real-life applications.

All BizCamp participants, whether you got a certificate today or not, have shown that Bermuda has what it takes and so do its entrepreneurs; that at all ages, our country can boast young entrepreneurs who are ready to build a solid foundation towards a sound career, whether you choose to start their own businesses or not.

Year after year, through the Department of ICT Policy and Innovation, we support BizCamps because technology, entrepreneurship, and ecommerce are building blocks for tomorrow’s thriving economies. By learning about them and applying your knowledge so early in life, BizCamps participants are without a doubt on their way to making
significant contributions to Bermuda’s future.

Again, congratulations to you all.
