Students Gain Market Experience

By Cara L. Foster

Students that are a part of the Barbados Entrepreneurship Foundation’s $20 Challenge, got the opportunity to gain some business experience during the Mega Flea Market, which took place St. Gabriel’s Primary School grounds last Saturday.

Sophia Lisk, Assistant Programme Coordinator at the Barbados Entrepreneurship Foundation (BEF) told The Barbados Advocate that the BEF tried to provide students with marketplace opportunities where they got to interact with the general public.

“You usually have various competitions that don’t always give students the opportunity to interact with the general public. So we try to choose different marketplaces so that they have the opportunity to interact with different types of people and learn different ways in which to market themselves,” she said.
