“The Ignite Young Adult Entrepreneurial Internship Programme is specifically designed to empower young adults in Bermuda by providing them with the necessary tools, resources, and mentorship to excel in their entrepreneurial journey. Participants in the programme will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with local entrepreneurs, gain hands-on experience in real-world business projects, and develop practical skills that are crucial for success in both their personal and professional lives.”

A 2022 intern stated, “I have a more positive attitude and a better plan. This is the closest I’ve felt to achieving my goals.” Another added, “I am grateful for the opportunity that this internship has given me as well as the knowledge and insight I have gained and seen.”

Erin Cardoso, another 2022 intern added, “Going into Ignite I didn’t know much about being an entrepreneur; I had somewhat of a business idea but didn’t know how to achieve it. During the programme, I got to hear from real entrepreneurs, learn about their experiences and struggles and ultimately how to take risks and adapt to be successful. Now I have started my own small business utilizing the skills I received being in the programme.”

The spokesperson said, “The Ignite Young Adult Entrepreneurial Internship Programme offers a rare learning experience, where participants can dive deep into a specific area of development and receive mentorship from entrepreneurial leaders to enhance their entrepreneurial knowledge and skills. Through the programme, participants will have access to a vast network of entrepreneurs and industry professionals, providing them with invaluable networking opportunities that can open doors for their future entrepreneurial endeavours.”

The spokesperson said, “Ignite Bermuda is committed to fostering a supportive community of entrepreneurs, where participants can connect, collaborate, and learn from each other, creating an environment for entrepreneurial growth.
