Futures in Newfoundland
and Labrador’s Youth (FINALY!) completed a Business
Retention and Expansion (BRE) study with youth
entrepreneurs from across Newfoundland and Labrador in
2005. The Business Retention and Expansion
Program helps develop community and economic growth.
The goal of the program was to help youth entrepreneurs
expand and grow in their communities. The program dealt
with obstacles that small/local businesses are facing in
order to achieve their desired results.
phase of our BRE Project is completed and as promised
FINALY! is not going to sit idle and let the BRE Report
collect dust. The BRE Report will now serve as the
roadmap in helping FINALY! and our partners better serve
the young business owners in NL.
We have reviewed the BRE Report and identified 11
central issues that are crucial to Youth Entrepreneurs
in growing their businesses.
The BRE Leadership Team
will meet to discuss these issues and we need help in
determining where we should place our priority. We look
forward to working with the Leadership Team to take
action and provide increased support to Youth
Entrepreneurs in NL.
