Over the last six years the Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship has operated with the understanding that entrepreneurs thrive when connected to a robust ecosystem and a strong network of like-minded entrepreneurs and mentors.
Staying true to this belief, the Branson Centre recently announced its partnership with Hub Coworking – Jamaica’s premier co-working space. Through this partnership the centre hopes to further expand the pipeline for entrepreneurs across the island.

Hub Coworking provides a hub for small business owners to work, network, share ideas and collaborate. “The ecosystem has grown since the Centre started six years ago and this is an opportunity to continue building the pipeline for growth; the hub already enjoys a great network of entrepreneurs that they will also send our way, so this will be a win-win-win relationship for the Hub, the Branson Centre Caribbean and entrepreneurs” said Dmitri Dawkins, Entrepreneurship Programme Director - The Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship - Caribbean.
