Scaling businesses...Erupting positive change...Supporting entrepreneurs!
Introduction

We ignite businesses to operate in a sustainable and socially responsible way to improve livelihoods and transform the world. Opened in Montego Bay, Jamaica by Sir Richard Branson in September 2011, the Centre is a hub for budding entrepreneurs who gain access to knowledge, markets, networks and resources through a dynamic and practical business training and support programme. Our peer and partnership network assists them to grow their operations, and form valuable personal relationships and business linkages. They also receive ongoing support in the form of mentorship, coaching, expert guidance and information exchange. Branson Centre entrepreneurs are selected through a rigorous recruitment process used to identify the most passionate and socially minded visionaries who use “business as a force for good” and act as change-makers in their community. By supporting the development of small and growing businesses, the Centre helps to create jobs and contribute to the economy in the Caribbean region. We do not act as a charity, but rather, think and operate very much like many of our entrepreneurs do – as an innovative, passion-driven & positively disruptive social enterprise.
