Young Jamaican entrepreneurs are being encouraged to leverage global networks to expand and grow their businesses. Augmented Virtual Reality is a technology that superimposes a computer-generated image on a user’s view of the real world. Young Jamaican entrepreneurs are being encouraged to leverage global networks to expand and grow their businesses.United Kingdom-based entrepreneur, Nathaniel Peat, who was a presenter at the Global Young Leaders Forum at the Jamaica 55 Diaspora Conference in Kingston on July 26, said young people engaged in business should connect with others in their field and combine their skills and talents into their operations.“Find individuals that are better at doing it than you and incorporate them into your team. That enables you to negate the challenges and to get into a position where you can foresee the hurdles that enables you to progress,” he said.One such network highlighted was the Global Entrepreneurship Network that connects entrepreneurs from across 170 countries.Mr. Peat, who is the Chief Executive Officer of GeNNex Elite, a company that manufactures and distributes renewable technology products, said that young Jamaicans can use models of entrepreneurship networks that exist to create a platform for themselves and youth within the Diaspora.“Take advantage of what already exists in the global space of entrepreneurship and introduce something like this in Jamaica where we can have some level of upskilling for individuals…where we can connect with global organisations and find the Jamaicans within these global networks and create the teams and the partnerships,” he said.“Once we engage the global network, we then have the ability for Jamaicans to be in a better position because the network is strong. It is not about who you know, (but) who knows you. The key thing is creating a global entrepreneurship ecosystem. When you have this, it means that if you sow a seed in an area where there is a lot of entrepreneurial growth, thinking, connectivity and partnerships, you are then able to support each other and rise higher.”Mr. Peat also stressed the importance of mentoring young entrepreneurs.“When you add a mentor or coach directly into your business, the statistic associated with successful businesses jumps. The sustainability that exists is solidified because you have somebody that gives direction,” he said.Additionally, he impressed upon the gathering the benefits of technology in promoting their brands to the global market.“There is augmented virtual reality where you can showcase your brand, image, product, service or whatever your business may be worldwide, while still in Jamaica. There are also communication platforms that you can utilise like Zoom, Skype and WhatsApp. All these eliminate travels costs and can engage multiple people from a wide spectrum,” he said.Augmented Virtual Reality is a technology that superimposes a computer-generated image on a user’s view of the real world.Several initiatives were proposed during the forum to help young entrepreneurs. These included: the development of a database of social entrepreneurs and their companies where youth and other persons in the Diaspora can connect with them and offer support. Mr. Peat also stressed the importance of mentoring young entrepreneurs. Story Highlights read more
zoomImage Courtesy: Kongsberg Norwegian companies Wilhelmsen and Kongsberg are joining forces to establish the world’s first autonomous shipping company.The new joint venture company, named Massterly, will be based in Lysaker, Norway, and be fully operational from August 2018.Through the new company, the duo intends to offer “a complete value chain for autonomous ships, from design and development, to control systems, logistics services and vessel operations.”As explained, land-based control centers will be established to monitor and operate autonomous ships in Norway and internationally.“Autonomy and remote operations are an important development for the maritime industry and Norway’s lead has been made possible as a result of close cooperation between the Norwegian maritime cluster and the Norwegian authorities. In recent years there has been rapid development driven by a significant increase in demand… When autonomous ships soon are a reality, Massterly will be crucial for digitalising the infrastructure and operations,” Geir Håøy, President and CEO of Kongsberg, said.In 2017, Kongsberg and its compatriot fertilizer producer Yara teamed up on a project to build the world’s first autonomous and zero emissions ship, Yara Birkeland, by 2020. The vessel will be sailing between Yara’s Norwegian production facilities at Herøya and the ports of Brevik and Larvik. Massterly will be able to deliver and operate autonomous vessels such as Yara Birkeland, according to Kongsberg.“Currently, we are at the very beginning of this development, but we see and believe that there will be a significant market for these types of services in the near future. At first, short sea shipping will use autonomous ships. This also implies increased competitiveness to move transport from road to sea. The gains are increased efficiency and reduction of emissions. For Norway as a maritime nation, this will be an important contribution to reach the UN sustainable development goals,” Thomas Wilhelmsen, Wilhelmsen Group CEO, pointed out.Norway currently has three autonomous shipping test beds. The third test area was opened in Horten on the Oslofjord in December 2017. read more
Bittersweet day for Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, who scored the first ever brace with his club but wasn’t able to prevent a draw vs Herta Berlin.Young Jadon Sancho’s career keeps looking better and better for him at Borussia Dortmund, the teenager has now officially scored the first Bundesliga brace of his career against Herta Berlin on Saturday.Unfortunately for him, the match result gave him a bittersweet feeling in the end because he would’ve preferred to get a victory alongside his stellar performance.However, at such a young age and given how well his risky bet of leaving England has turned out for Jadon, a mild celebration is in order and there are some details that we have to go through about his performance.Sancho just took a very important spot in Bundesliga’s history after his brace, a milestone that only another foreign player has done better than him and we have a hunch that this is only the first of many memorable nights for the lad at Borussia Dortmund.The people at Bayern München must be very nervous right now, for they are going to have to struggle badly in order to beat the most in-form squad of European football that also happens to play in the same competition that they are this season.Disappointing result today but we will take the point and focus on our next game! The work continues!Nice to get 2 goals ⚽️⚽️ #JS7 pic.twitter.com/GmStsiHyLS— Jadon Sancho (@Sanchooo10) October 27, 2018Jadon Sancho scored his brace at the age of 18 years and 216 days, which turns him into the youngest Borussia Dortmund foreigner who has been able to achieve this in the Bundesliga’s history.But that’s not all, with this record, the English lad also ranked as the second foreigner of all the German clubs to get two goals in a single match.Before him, Hamburg’s Son Heung-min is still at the top spot after the brace he scored in his club’s defeat against Hannover at the age of 18 years and 135 days.The milestone that the South Korean player who today plays for Tottenham Hotspur, was reached back on 20 November 2010.This leaves Sancho with an incredible first impression that we believe won’t be the last we are going to hear from him this season, as all competitions are barely getting started and Borussia Dortmund has put together quite the competitive squad that is looking like it will cause a lot of problems for any other club in the continent.Bayern München will be the ones that will suffer from this vibrant Dortmund squad first hand as they compete in the same league, but we all know how Atletico Madrid already got a smashing defeat with a Jadon Sancho goal included.Report: Dortmund hammer four past Leverkusen George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund put four past Bayer Leverkusen.Borussia Dortmund leapfrogged Bayern Munich to claim second place in the Bundesliga. After handing out a 4-0 thrashing of…Sancho pic.twitter.com/TfHKA1woRM— canalbvb (@canalbvb) October 27, 2018As far as the player’s game development throughout the season, Sancho has a very peculiar style of play that he has already shown to the whole world.This is a player who has an instant reflex of quickly going on the attack to dribble any defender that is standing right in front of him, sometimes his pace looks a bit sloppy but he always manages to get past the obstacles, either with a pass or a skill demonstration that leaves anyone in awe.One could’ve predicted that Sancho was going to serve plenty of assists for his teammates this season, but his most recent matches have proven that he can also be that player who scores the goals and this leaves him as one of the most reliable players in European football today.In the 13 matches that Sancho has played so far in all competitions, the lad has already scored 4 goals and given 8 assists.These numbers mean that Jadon has already been directly involved in 12 goals out of all the games he’s played so far.He may have started the season on the bench at first, but his undisputed talent has convinced the manager that Sancho needs to start on every single match until the end of the season as long as he is fit.Jadon Sancho for Borussia Dortmund this season:🅰️ Assist🅰️ Assist⚽️ Goal🅰️ Assist🅰️ Assist🅰️ Assist🅰️ Assist🅰️ Assist⚽️ Goal⚽️ Goal ⚽️ Goal⚽️ GoalRemember the name. 🔥 pic.twitter.com/6waxzqWjou— EPL Bible (@EPLBible) October 27, 2018What do you think about Jadon Sancho’s form in European football right now?
