ENTREPRENEUR BUSINESS INSTITUTE
ICMC in partnership with The University of the Virgin Islands (UVI) proudly presented, “The Entrepreneur Business Institute,” in the summer of 2013, in an effort to positively impact the business landscape and empower and prepare young Virgin Islanders with the important skills of business and entrepreneurship.

This FREE summer program that runs for three weeks in mid-June through July for high school students on St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix, has successfully helped students develop key skills about entrepreneurship, leadership and business, while providing insight into the college experience and campus life by immersing them into the college environment.

For three weeks, 30 students from across the Territory have the opportunity to reside on the UVI campus to enjoy a pre-college experience and learn about the advantages and challenges of entrepreneurship, experience mentorship from successful business leaders while participating in active discussions about concept development and business ownership, engage in team exercises to improve their team-building and project management skills and enjoy an educational experience where they can participate in forums and discussions from business professionals with a group of their peers.

ICMC prides itself in the fact that the inspiring program offers a key opportunity for students to access the information that can take them into the business environment armed with the skills and information that will serve to benefit them as they survey the business and entrepreneurial landscape.

Though ICMC held a similar business program from 2006 to 2011, titled the College Business Residency Program in partnership with the University of the Virgin Islands, the company decided to take a hiatus for one year in 2012 as they worked to re-define and re-create the high intensity program that now highlights a much more entrepreneurial focus.  This allowed the committee to re-define the outputs of the program, as well as more effectively offer young people insight into what it truly takes to be an entrepreneur in the U.S. Virgin Islands in order to create the next wave of young VI entrepreneurs.

A robust and well-rounded program, the curriculum also offers time for participants to enjoy time together as they participate in community engagement activities as well as social networking opportunities and
field trips.
