The Branson Centre and R3M1X3D work to help entrepreneurs
Orlando, FL – Monday, October 31, 2011 – Sir Richard Branson, CEO of Virgin, is introducing his unique management style to the Caribbean with the $3.5 million Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship, which recently opened in Montego Bay, Jamaica, where it endeavors to mentor young business owners in an effort to teach them how to grow successful companies.
“Entrepreneurs and small businesses are the engines that power our economies, create jobs, fuel growth and ultimately transform communities.” Branson said.
Since the opening, The Branson Centre has retained the marketing design services of R3M1X3D in order to brand one of its esteemed members of their Entrepreneur Development Program, The Swim Place Sports and Culture Club. Among other things, R3M1X3D will develop the messaging and the visual identity of the sports and aquatic center.
“One of our company’s missions is to benefit society through design. I can’t think of a much better fit for us than working with The Branson Centre” said R3M1X3D co-founder Douglas Berger.
