Three teams of entrepreneurs from the Crawfish Rock community had the opportunity to take part in a 4-week entrepreneurial bootcamp, sponsored by the Próspera Foundation. The participants learned a number of topics ranging from the basics of starting a business to project positioning, marketing and finance thanks to a partnership between Próspera and T&M.

To culminate four weeks of successful training, a project competition was organised on October 1, allowing these brilliant local entrepreneurs to show off their business ideas to an evaluation committee as well as to the public at large.

Three Roatan young entrepreneurs impressed the judges with their idea for Clean4u, a website that will enable islanders to access deep cleaning services at affordable rates and convenience. They were awarded the first prize in the competition, consisting of $1000.

Our dream is for the company to grow, to make it a franchise and spread it across the world and winning the competition was just a start.”, said the members of the winning team.

Steven Namanny, manager of the Próspera Foundation, said the training and competition highlighted the power of entrepreneurship and wishes for improvement in the local community.

David Sandino, Program Manager at T&M, remarked: “We are thrilled to support the community providing business training. Our goal is to help businesses be competitive by implementing digital transformation and to boost employment opportunities through education”.
