Home News Investment portal connecting Guyanese entrepreneurs, start-ups with investors
An investment portal, created by a United States-based Guyanese, seeks to provide companies in Guyana with access to more than 15,000 potential investors from around the world with billions in funding available.
The platform – GuyanaInvestors.com – was developed by Florida-based Guyanese tech-entrepreneur Salaudeen Nausrudeen, to support the growth of businesses and entrepreneurs in Guyana.
Nausrudeen, who is the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of PositivePlans, a business technology solutions company, also recently launched Kaietour.com, Guyana’s only global travel booking app built to support the growth and modernisation of the local tourism sector.
In a press statement, it was explained that GuyanaInvestors.com is an innovative approach to bridging the capital gap in Guyana and works in all sectors with small, medium, and large enterprises. It is capable of funding projects from US$100,000 to as much as US$1 billion.
This is in keeping with the push by the Guyana Government to attract investments, both local and foreign, in various sectors so as to diversify the country’s economy.
“Business activities and investment opportunities in Guyana are soaring at a record pace, with 2022 expected growth to be 40 per cent+. While oil and gas is kickstarting the economy, the Government of Guyana is also pushing with heavy focus on upscaling other key sectors with infrastructure and generous fiscal incentives. This is attracting thousands of companies, entrepreneurs, and start-ups from within Guyana and internationally who are looking to raise capital or find investors. Capital raise an investor match is now easy and accessible with www.GuyanaInvestors.com,” it noted.
According to the missive, Guyana’s economy is expanding in every direction and there are hundreds of companies and entrepreneurs that are gearing up to take advantage of the opportunities; however, a significant hurdle is the availability of investors or capital to serve the array of interests and opportunities.
“Guyana’s economy is being fuelled by the oil and gas sector as well as Government’s commitment to bolster other key sectors through massive infrastructure and fiscal incentives. Guyana is also rapidly becoming a regional powerhouse and the demand for capital is increasing daily, with supplies and options remaining very limited… [GuyanaInvestors.com] connects Guyanese businesses with more than 15,000 investors and fund managers around the world with billions in available funds,” the statement detailed.
GuyanaInvestors.com is a technology platform to help companies easily create their investment-seeking project for browsing and consideration by investors.
It has partnered with Plan B Enterprise, an investment firm with a global network of investors and fund managers with access to capital in the billions.
Plan B Enterprise would be working with local companies and entrepreneurs in a variety of ways to secure funding or investor match. This is a significant and much-needed requisite in order for Guyana to remain on its strong growth trajectory.
Companies and start-ups wishing to access this global network of fund managers and investors can do so at www.guyanainvestors.com; likewise, any investor looking for opportunities in Guyana can browse the investable projects created by companies and start-ups.
