The American reality television show “Shark Tank” is an international hit, and it has existed in some form since as early as 2001. In San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, this same concept was implemented to create the Belize Shark Tank investment event.
The event, hosted by Caye International Bank, is designed to bring attention to Belize’s private sector and the important role these small and medium-sized businesses play within the local community.
Shark Tank—Belizean Style
To enter the event, startups and entrepreneurs submit their business proposals for consideration. These submissions are vetted, and the best projects are selected and presented before the panel of “sharks” and investors.
The previous Shark Tank investment event showcased exceptionally innovative products and services. It was a remarkable success and this year’s event is on pace to be the biggest one yet.
The Chairman of Caye International Bank, Ambassador Joel Nagel said that the event; “is designed to help Belizean startups and early-stage companies who have the potential to become tomorrow’s leaders in tourism, agriculture, export industries, and the financial services sector. All these small to medium sized companies who will be vying for the winning prize are all vital to Belize’s economic growth. They will not only provide jobs for hundreds of Belizeans but also directly contribute to an increased standard of living. The overall success of these companies in the local and international market will help to diversify the private sector and create a more robust economy within Belize.”
Showcasing Belize’s Brightest Entrepreneurs and Startups
This year’s Shark Tank event hopes to attract many of Belize’s young entrepreneurs and startup companies. All Belize media companies are openly invited to come and witness the show, as these individuals compete and present their ideas before a panel of investors and celebrity judges for the grand total prize of BZD $10,000.
By highlighting these local businesses, more sales and money can be redirected back into the local region. For small businesses in Belize, just participating in the Shark Tank investment event can offer incredible marketing and advertising benefits.
The official panel of sharks will be announced shortly, and the deadline for entry submission is on the 26th of March. For further information about the Shark Tank event hosted in April, please contact Hazel Gutierrez by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 501-226-2388.
