Seven participants in the fifth annual Summer Student Entrepreneur Program presented by the Bermuda Economic Development Corporation have introduced their businesses to the community with a meet and greet on the lawn of City Hall in Hamilton.

The BEDC said the three-hour event was an opportunity for participants to introduce their businesses and gain valuable experience selling and promoting their goods and services.

This year’s seven successful participants are:

• Aaron Lugo, Lugo’s Mighty Mower Lawn Service, a lawn mowing company that provides affordable, high-quality lawn care.

• Antoine Jones, Capsule, an inclusive one-stop shop for designer, vintage and local brands. The days of blending in are over.

• Isaiah Fraser, Digi Portal, a game service company that provides customers with entertainment outside their homes.

• Ry-Aidin Evans-Waldron, Snkrs Joint, a quick and easy way to get the newest on-trend sneakers in Bermuda.

• Salay Dyer-Raynor, Captive Cards, which ensures that you will have the perfect card every time. Their cards are affordable, high quality, and completely customizable.

• Taquira Simmons, Lumineux, a self-care brand that provides affordable, high-quality products. They aim to highlight and promote the importance of self-care, self-love, and improving your mental health.

• Zen Mello, Zenimations, which provides exciting, animated videos for customers for whatever they need. Whether a commercial, a music video, or a short gif, they can create anything for anyone.

The SSEP is an eight-week program designed to develop young Bermudians into the island’s next wave of entrepreneurs.

The programme, which started July 4, allows participants ages 13-21 to learn practical business skills such as earning revenue, creating a business plan, conducting SWOT analyses, and much more.
