Applying athletics’ success to business#9733;

We contend that Jamaica has entrepreneurs equivalent in talent to our top athletes, particularly Mr Usian Bolt and Mrs Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce. What we have not had, and desperately need, is a public policy and a system which identify entrepreneurs, nurture them with training, and support their development with resources until they achieve international competitiveness.

From today’s Jamaica Observer editorial. I briefly mentioned having something like this on All Angles earlier this week (albeit specific to tech entrepreneurs), but unfortunately I didn’t get the opportunity to elaborate on it (9: 08 to 9:45, see interview here)

Give the article a read.
