Success.mu, Young Entrepreneur Award (YEA) is an innovative entrepreneurship development initiative of British American Investment Group (BAInvestment Group) aimed at encouraging and helping young people to fulfill their dreams by developing their ideas into sustainable endeavours. The BAInvestment Group sees youth entrepreneur spirit as a powerful and challenging alternative to traditional salaried job options as well as a thriving and performing engine of business activity, innovation, wealth creation, socio-economic empowerment and independence.
The BAInvestment Group is accordingly initiating Success.mu by providing our potential entrepreneurs with a golden opportunity to light up that spirit and bring their vision to life by driving their passion with audacity, commitment and determination, thereby, contributing to the development of the economic and business landscape of Mauritius and Rodrigues.
Developing, spreading and securing entrepreneurial spirit in Mauritius require a clear, vibrant and consistent message of hope, encouragement, support and commitment to all our youth. We are trying to assist our young people with a creative, innovative mind and a passion to achieve something that will bring them pride, wealth, excitement, and independence.
Success.mu is here to make it happen. It has been established for this purpose. It aspires to instill and cultivate an entrepreneurial spirit and culture in our youth while catering to their needs in terms of professional, business and financial support.
