Solomon Sharpe, CEO of Main Event Entertainment Limited in Jamaica is a focused entrepreneur and a TU Alum. Since his graduation from TU as a Management major with a concentration on Marketing and Sports Management, he has formed four companies.

“I’m proud of every business venture I’ve taken on, and look forward to the future,” said Sharpe. “It has been amazing seeing each project grow from just a vision or a crazy idea into full-fledged companies contributing to Jamaica’s economy and workforce.”

His company, Main Event Entertainment, is the leading event and promotions agency in Jamaica. Sharpe and his team work tirelessly catering to their clients’ needs for any type of occasion. The company has become known for its innovation and creativity in the execution of an event.

Sharpe noted how his choice of university and major significantly contributed to his career.

“I wanted to go to a small school in a small town similar to what I was used to at home. I received the one-on-one attention that I felt I needed,” he said. “My choice in major and everything I learned at Tiffin set me straight in all aspects of my chosen career after leaving school.”

He reflected on the most beneficial aspect of his TU education by showing appreciation for the interactions with professors.

“Tiffin employed a truly integrated approach,” he stated. “All the professors shared real life experiences and wisdom which really helped me later on in life.”

Sharpe played soccer while at TU and still remembers the year the team qualified for the NAIA National Soccer Tournament. His athletic background has also helped him in his career. Sharpe uses leadership and teamwork skills that he utilized as an athlete in his business today.

TU had such a great impact on Sharpe that both his brothers attended and graduated from TU as well.

Through his own experiences, Sharpe has gained valuable insight, and he offered advice for future graduates of TU.

“Try to do what you love and let your passion guide you,” he stated. “It sounds cliché but it is truly the only way to survive and thrive in your career and your life.”
