Angels & Golden Passports
While for many years the Caribbean has remained an attractive host for domiciling corporations—regardless of whether or not the company’s operations take place there—reviews on founding and operating a business in the Caribbean have been, at best, mixed. Despite the admirable progress made over the years by the World Bank, their regional interlocutors, and local governments, the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the Caribbean remains as fragmented as ever. Access to finance, or the lack thereof, is still the most salient contributor to the chronic underperformance of the region’s private sector. Starting on page 2, The STAR Businessweek sits down with the directors of an innovative new programme that seeks to bridge the funding gap between promising Caribbean start-ups and muchneeded capital . . . see Attention Angels: Report to The Caribbean. Speaking of entrepreneurs, be sure to read this week’s cover story From Westphalia to The West Indies—a primer on Citizenship Investment Programmes—the first article in a STAR Businessweek series exploring global citizenship and the region’s latest lure for wealthy global investors.
