KINGSTON, Jamaica – Chief executive officers of Herboo Corporation Javin Williams and Kamla Williams were a short while ago crowned the 2015 Jamaica Observer Mogul in the Making winners.

The event, which is now in its third staging, took place at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel and is aimed at promoting and revealing to the world the ideas of young Jamaicans who successfully embody the spirit of entrepreneurism, while making a positive impact on the economy.

The brother-and-sister company was presented with a cheque valued at J$100,000 from event sponsor Johnnie Walker; complimentary advertising packages on Flow valued at J$200,000; and an entry into the Scotiabank Vision Achievers programme, where they will benefit from 17 weeks of business coaching.

Sasha Plamer, founder of popsicle company Liqy Liqy, also copped the Business Journalists award, while Winston Wilkins, CEO of Start-Up Robot, walked away with the People’s Choice award.
The winners were chosen from 12 nominees. All 12 nominees received complimentary advertising packages in the Jamaica Observer, specially discounted Mogul in the Making advertising packages for 2016, 50 per cent discount on six-month subscriptions, and complimentary access to the Jamaica Observer E-paper for six months.
