Jóvenes Empresarios de Tenerife – JET
The Canary Islands is a territory with many specificities, surrounded by water and hundreds of kilometers away from the European continent. Our local market is limited and those who operate regionally oftentimes require air or sea transport just to sell their products or services overseas.
Despite these apparent difficulties, we want to look at the world so that our companies can evolve and become a technological reference and take advantage of our strength (like the tricontinental strategic geolocation) to develop new opportunities, rather than keep focusing on our weaknesses.
The status of outermost region of Europe has entailed limitations but also has allowed us to develop instruments for the promotion of new businesses in this land, such as the Canary Islands Special Zone, ZEC (4% corporate tax): the Free Trade Zone, ZFT; the Science Park of Tenerife, (Parque Cientifico y Tecnologico de Tenerife) among others. These extra perks position our province as a great international benchmark which allows greater professionalization and competitiveness of its own business network.
Nonetheless, the day to day bureaucracy and the lack of highly qualified and motivated personnel is still a widespread issue, therefore JET is an essential instrument for the development of a professional network of companies that can compensate for those gaps in the local employment market. The Association of Young Entrepreneurs of Tenerife is meant to be a place where a powerful ecosystem of SMEs can improve and emerge systematically.
Our 2019-2023 Program, IN-PULSO, is a fresh, realistic framework program designed to build the association we would like to have. It’s a roadmap that helps us work efficiently and, above all, it is the product of the work of those people who want to be part of the social, economic, political and business conversation of the Canary Islands.
We want to generate the necessary impulse for things to happen.
