ONE OF the successes of the Scotia Bank $20 Challenge says this foundation
is a critical launching pad for young entrepreneurs.
In 2016, Aidan Charles won the challenge and the award for Innovation And Culinary Arts with the successful launch of his business, Bajan Essential Cuisine. Now 18 years old, Charles said he has been able to maintain his business and repeat clientele, though on a small scale because of school obligations.
Charles, who was on hand to help mentor some of the participants in the ninth edition of the challenge during their market place held at Sky Mall, Haggatt Hall, St Michael, last Saturday, told the students they had a priceless opportunity that they should make full use of.
