What entrepreneur hasn´t asked the question: how to grow my small business? That´s why QuickCart Founder and CEO Monique Powell shared lessons from her entrepreneurial journey during the Tech Beach Retreat spotlight: so you can get inspired!
Long before she ran Jamaica’s answer to Uber Eats, Monique Powell—Founder and CEO of QuickCart—was a teenager dipping her toes into entrepreneurship by importing and selling computer parts.
