USP Entrepreneurial Fair

 

The University of the South Pacific with its diverse student background understands the need to encourage and assist its students, graduates and members of the community to develop an entrepreneurial mindset and relevant skills.

Due to the growing importance of the need to develop and promote entrepreneurial awareness and skills for all our stakeholders in Fiji, the University of the South Pacific had its first standalone annual Entrepreneurial Fair that was held from the 19-23 February, 2018.

In one inspiring week, USP’s inaugural Entrepreneurial Fair had brought together an amazing group of influential and successful entrepreneurs (both local and overseas), as well as NGOs and government stakeholders (including the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism representatives)   to share their unconventional and in some cases their unexpected insights into what it takes to launch, fund, sustain and grow a small and medium business. The week long program was not only be open to USP students and alumni, but to the general public as well, considering the importance of promoting entrepreneurship to the community of Fiji.

The week long program included entrepreneurial skills development sessions, motivational speeches from successful entrepreneurs (overseas and local), funding options and various small/medium business development topics.

The primary purpose of the 2018 Entrepreneurial Fair was to provide an opportunity for USP students, alumni and the Fiji Public to learn basic skills to start their own businesses, to improve their livelihoods and add value to the Fiji economy.
