BRIDGETOWN---The Caribbean is
even closer to fostering an entrepre-
neurial spirit among the region s
young people through CIBC First-
Caribbean International Bank s
renewal of its partnership with a
regional youth entrepreneurship
CIBC FirstCaribbean and the
Caribbean Centre of Excellence of
Youth Entrepreneurship (CEYE)
recently entered into a new Memo-
randum of Understanding (MOU) to
continue their successful strategic
partnership. The MOU solidifies the
bank s commitment to work with the
CEYE on entrepreneurial development
to inspire creativity and innovation,
build independence, create jobs and
generate wealth. The project targets
young males and females and ulti-
mately seeks to improve their liveli-
hoods and the future for Caribbean
CIBC FirstCaribbean is making
available grant funding of USD
$200,000 over the two years of the
partnership. In addition Youth Business
Trusts/Youth Entrepreneurship Organ-
isations will receive US$120,000.
The funds will be used to help start
up new youth entrepreneurship organ-
isations (YEO) in the Bahamas and St
Kitts and Nevis, as well as, for the
first time, support an already existing
YEO in St Vincent and the Grenadines.
The funding will also be used to con-
tinue ongoing development of the
youth entrepreneurship programmes
in Antigua, Barbados, St Lucia, St Vin-
cent and the Grenadines, Dominica,
T&T and Jamaica. Additionally, the
CEYE will also use part of the funds
for capacity development, quality con-
trol, and monitoring and evaluation.
The CEYE evolved out increasing
requests from Caricom countries for
help from the Barbados Youth Business
Trust. Managing director, Marcia Bran-
don in thanking the bank said: "We
are extremely grateful to CIBC First-
Caribbean for their vision and com-
mitment to regional sustainable devel-
opment, which is what continuing this
well-needed partnership contributes
to. The bank s partnership is not only
long term but very high impact."
She added: "CIBC FirstCaribbean
recognises that a strategic approach
to corporate social responsibility brings
sustainability, but sustainability does
not happen overnight, hence their
willingness to stay in for the long haul."
In terms of outcomes, Brandon said
that over the past six years the CEYE
and its partners in youth entrepre-
neurship had been able to expose over
3,000 youths to entrepreneurship,
start-up approximately 75 young males
and females in a range of businesses,
and expose 35 young entrepreneurs to
access to markets and trade missions.
Chief executive officer of CIBC
FirstCaribbean, Rik Parkhill, said the
bank s renewal of its partnership with
the CEYE was a testament to its keen
interest in the entrepreneurial devel-
opment of the region s young people.
"We continue to be deeply com-
mitted to sustainable social and eco-
nomic development initiatives which
have the potential to transform the
lives of the region s youth."
He added that the importance of
entrepreneurship to the continued
development of the Caribbean econ-
omy and recovery from a recession
could not be overemphasised.
The MOU is the third between CIBC
FirstCaribbean and the CEYE.
CIBC fostering entrepreneurship among youth
"We continue to be
deeply committed to
sustainable social and
initiatives which have
the potential to
transform the lives of
the region's youth."
