The Young Entrepreneurship Scheme (YES) is to stimulate employment generation by encouraging Fijian youths to become job creators rather than job seekers, which in turn lead to an increase in new and innovative products and services that meet international standards and can compete globally.
The primary objective of YES is to provide immediate assistance in the form of grants to young and budding entrepreneurs who have innovative and bankable ideas/projects which financial institutions are not willing to support due to lack of collateral. This will partly address the market failure where financial institutions are reluctant to provide start-up capital to young entrepreneurs.
This YES Program also promote the adoption of eco-friendly and sustainable business practices that respect the environment and adheres to relevant laws and regulations.
Successful young aspiring entrepreneurs are being provided with business training and mentorship to enable them to operate financially viable businesses.
