Virgin Unite Connection Trip to Montego Bay, Jamaica

Join us to celebrate the opening of the new Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship Caribbean

Virgin Unite organizes regular Connection Trips to bring business and philanthropic leaders together in incredible places around the world.  These trips provide entrepreneurs with face-to-face exposure to frontline social issues and build our global community of people who are passionate about making business a force for good.

Virgin Unite is offering a select group of entrepreneurs a once in a lifetime opportunity to join Sir Richard Branson on a Connection Trip to Montego Bay, Jamaica from 7th-9th September 2011. By joining the trip, you will celebrate the launch of the new Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship as a Founding Patron and provide critical support to local entrepreneurs – becoming the first business leaders to back the Centre with Richard Branson and our partners.

Richard Branson “Entrepreneurship is a crucial factor in creating a strong and sustainable economy, and there is so much untapped entrepreneurial potential in the Caribbean.  By coming together in Jamaica, we can harness the Branson Centre’s full potential to inspire young entrepreneursand create opportunities for future generations.” - Sir Richard Branson

Together we will experience the Caribbean’s crystal blue oceans and white sands on our journey to unleash Jamaica’s entrepreneurial potential. We are keen to host people who want to be actively involved in launching our non-profit Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship in the Caribbean - a hub for entrepreneurs who are passionate about growing successful and responsible businesses.

Guests fly into Montego Bay on September 7th, kicking off with an exciting few days visiting and mentoring young entrepreneurs. Together with Richard we’ll hear from renowned local business and cultural leaders, cut the ribbon to launch the Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship Caribbean, and enjoy the magic Jamaica has to offer at GoldenEye Resort.

“We were humbled by the inspirational people we had the good fortune to meet. Without a doubt we found the whole experience uplifting and life changing.” - Peter Cullum, South Africa Connection Trip
