Antigua and Barbuda: Prime Minister Gaston Browne had the pleasure to meet
with a young entrepreneur and professional sneaker enthusiast, Amari SneakerHead Thomas, earlier this week.
This young entrepreneur’s journey started with his first business in 2010, Kickz’ R’ Us – 268,

Since then, he has found himself evolving his business model to fit an ever-changing market and has diversified his portfolio with
a few new ventures, the latest being Necessary Accessories – 268, a wholesaler of mobile device essentials.
His products can be found in most supermarkets and convenience stores.
During the meet and greet, Prime Minister Browne inquired about the difficulties Amari faces in plying his trade and how this administration could assist.
Among the things discussed was the banking sector and how processes could be made easier for entrepreneurs.
PM Browne also took the opportunity to speak on the Entrepreneur Development Fund and how that can assist in further developing his business.

We look forward to seeing him grow and prosper.
