31 Jul Durham Capital Investments launch new initiative for finding entrepreneurial talent among the local community
We are proud to announce the launch of our Corporate Responsibility (CORE) program’s first initiative, the Promote Entrepreneurial Talent (PET) project, designed to find the best entrepreneurial talent from within our community.
This is an important step for our company, both in terms of our Corporate Responsibility charter and our belief in establishing a positive presence for the community in which are based. We will conduct an extensive search throughout Hong Kong and the surrounding regions, taking in all the local colleges, universities, and various relevant institutes, in order to find as many candidates as possible.
We will conduct preliminary interviews in order to establish the candidates’ aptitude and dedication, as well as the ideas they have for new start-ups, from which we will reduce the field to the most suitable applicants whom we deem as having the right capabilities. The successful entrants will then undergo a series of assessments, including working within our company, in order to prove their commitment and capacity for business leadership.
Once we have chosen the right individuals, we will allocate a team of advisors with the necessary business experience, both from within our company and from outside, to help them with their business and help them to avoid the inevitable pitfalls that new young entrepreneurs face. There is no limit to the amount of people who can be successful in their application as we have no maximum amount of places available.
We are very proud to be launching this innovative initiative and we look forward to its success.
CEO Douglas Thompson said, “This is a positive step to help those who deserve it. We believe in empowerment as opposed to charity and this is exactly what this initiative is all about. Basically, we find the brightest and most committed people out there who are looking for a little help in starting a new business, and we help them to do it, while at the same time broadening their horizons in order to allow them to further explore any new possibilities. This can also help us and our clients with future investments as we look to bring in investors to fund various projects. I am very excited about this project and I will be personally overseeing it.”
