KINGSTON, Jamaica— Founder of the Honey Bun Foundation, Michelle Chong, says collaboration between the public and private sectors is critical in developing innovative solutions to support the micro, small and medium-sized enterprise (MSME) sector.
“It is important for us to demonstrate that we can work together, because people who share a common vision are powerful when they work together,” she said.
“We are not short of solutions here in Jamaica, programmes or project plans; we have everything that we need,” she added.
Chong was speaking at the virtual launch of The Honey Bun Foundation’s Gapp App on Wednesday.
The app is a business diagnostic tool that will enable MSMEs to understand the areas of their business that require improvement and make recommendations on how to fill the gaps identified through training, funding and assistance from business support organisations (BSOs) currently in the ecosystem.
