The Jamaica Observer believes that entrepreneurs are the grass roots of the economy and that they should be encouraged to take the risks needed to build our country's future. So we have published the stories of 12 businesses that were nominated for our Mogul in the Making programme. We hope their example will inspire others to take the plunge too.

All of our nominees are winners by virtue of the imagination, initiative and courage they've demonstrated in starting their own enterprises. But we'll be choosing three of them for special attention and we'll be asking you, our readers, to select one of those three -- the people's choice.
