Branson Centre caribbean

When BCoEC first opened its doors in 2011, they admitted up to 20 entrepreneurs per cohort to attend training one day a week for 12 weeks in the centre’s Montego Bay location. By the end of 2014, BCoEC had successfully trained 7 cohorts in Jamaica and was ready to scale the programme.

In March 2015 they launched the Branson Centre Caribbean Online, an online platform that provided training to a much wider pool of entrepreneurs.

Soon after, they took our first leap outside of Jamaica into the wider Caribbean, setting up the programme in the British Virgin Islands, where they welcomed their first cohort there in January 2016.
