The FITO Mission
Ambitious, insightful, and courageous young people who share a passion for enterprise are often told to “get a good education and find a good job.” Guyanese youth and young adults face unemployment and underemployment due to the lack of diversified industries and business development. An initiative that “cultivates” the early passion for entrepreneurship can field proficient players sooner.
The interns’ entrepreneurial interest is linked with a related business opportunity that serves to build their knowledge of the targeted industry and develop their relevant core skills. The mission outlines practical steps to ownership and principles in the creation of transferrable wealth. “From Internship to Ownership Inc.” (FITO) offers tomorrow’s captains of the larger economy a direct path to it.
FITO responds to the “Urgency of now” catching young hearts at a pivotal moment when business opportunities and career options can best be aligned with their interests. Their desires to earn are fed with knowledge and practices that success requires of them, to learn.
