Mr. Douglas Lindo, (left) is the lecturer and Academic advisor for Venture Challenge competition. Scotiabank s Small Medium Enterprise division has proudly partnered with Mona School of Business and Management (MSBM) to facilitate our UWI Venture Challenge competition Through this competition final year UWI students are given the opportunity to formulate and pursue their entrepreneurial endeavours. Near Earth Delights Limited the winning team of this year s competition will be a manufacturing company which produces Giggles, a line of organic baby food purees and juices, for children 6-9 months old and solid foods and juices for children 9-48 months old. The baby food line is distinctive because it's made from organically grown fruits and vegetables found in the Jamaican diet. The idea for the baby food line came about while we were doing an individual Idea Generation Assignment for our New Ventures course. Each team member pitched their ideas to the group with a view to selecting one for that particular group project. After much deliberation, an idea was selected, and that was to produce an organic baby food line. The team work began and the idea was further developed through numerous hours of individual and collective work. Additionally, we can never forget the jokes in between when we trying to come up with a brand name. Alas, the name Giggles was conceptualized and since then it's been evolving into a project we are all exceptionally proud of and as is popular quoted the rest is history. Submitted by Aundre Moore
