At FIDC we believe that promoting and assisting enterprise is crucial to ensuring future economic development in the Falkland Islands.
The Youth Entrepreneurship Scheme (YES) is an FIDC project that aims to develop the business capacity of the Falkland Islands population. This initiative looks to aid and promote sustainable business development within the local community, including the creation of new businesses and assisting the renewal of existing businesses
Following on from research and consultations with local entrepreneurs and key stakeholders, proposals for the establishment of a business mentoring program, the creation of an enterprise publication and the updating of the FIDC website to assist the YES project were approved by FIDB. YES aims to educate young people, and the public more generally, about business, economics and free enterprise. Through the assessment of the current business environment the YES project can assist current and future entrepreneurs in maximising the economic potential in the Falklands.
