A COMMUNITY WHERE INVESTORS CAN CONNECT WITH SMALL AND MEDIUM ENTERPRISES IN THE CARIBBEAN
Accessing finance is one of the main challenges that small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) face while trying to grow, particularly at the early stage. To help address this, Angel investing offers a viable alternative financing solution for Caribbean businesses looking for additional finance to fund their entrepreneurship ventures.
In addition, there are often a number of high net worth individuals who want to invest in new and innovative companies, but sometimes find the process of assessing firms tedious and time consuming.
With these two major constraints in mind, the Caribbean Export Development Agency (Caribbean Export) has established the Regional Angel Investor Network (RAIN) to link Angels with SMEs seeking finance, with the aim of fostering an ecosystem for Angel Investing within the Caribbean.
