Mrs. Ana Maria Lowry, CEO of A & P International, and Regional Director of the North America Nehemiah Project joins Patrice in today’s podcast to discuss Nehemiah Week 2022 (August 15-20) and North America Region Business Plan Competition winner, Jason Centeno.
As the Regional Director of the North America Nehemiah Project, comprising Canada, the USA, and Haiti, Ana Maria will be presenting Jason Centero during the International Business Plan Competition held on August 19 at Nehemiah Week.
Nehemiah Week (August 15-20, 2022) is all about promoting entrepreneurship through training and coaching and celebrating entrepreneurs from around the world in the International Business Plan Competition (BPC). The BPC is a ministry of economic change that provides entrepreneurs with access to mentorship, resources, and training to start and grow their businesses. To qualify for the BPC, participants must take a Business Entrepreneur Certification course designed to equip business owners in developing and navigating the principles, practicalities, and planning of a business. Upon course completion, they compete in inter-class competitions, and the winner of which moves on to center competitions, followed by country and regional competitions. The final stop is the international competition, where this year, Jason Centeno will represent the North American region.
Mr. Centeno is the founder of Trashmitter, an innovative waste management company that allows individuals to conveniently recycle their waste products. This Go-Green initiative is not only facilitated by the latest innovative technology which allows scheduled trash pick up and tracking of the waste processing and recycling, but it also empowers users to financially profit from trash and waste removal. Trashmitter’s goal is to “…incentivize users and challenge them to become Earth’s Ultimate Stewards.”
On August 19 Jason will face off against three other regional competitors: Jennifer from Europe, Jino and Joy from Asia, and Dominic from Africa. The winner will take home $10,000. The second place finisher will receive $5,000, and the third place prize is $3,000. A People’s Choice Award comes with an extra $1,000 and is decided by popular vote. The International Business Plan Competition is one of the FREE events of Nehemiah Week and the more people who sign up and vote for Jason, the better his chances of winning. The 2022 International Business Plan Competition promises to be an exciting and close-fought battle.
