BELTRAIDE’S entrepreneurship workshop provided the platform for the development on my business idea, transforming my idea into a profitable business. The staff at the SBDC did a superb job in providing the professional guidance during the implementation phases of the entrepreneurship training, translating theory into practice in order to give birth to a new business. The birth pangs were severe at times but the results are rewarding. Pure Nature MD is in all stores country-wide, providing an alternative solution to a growing pandemic in the health sector.


In particular, I would like to single out Mrs. Nilda Riverol of the SBDC for her dedication, inspiration and professionalism as my mentor and business consultant during the implementation phases. I could not have achieved my business objectives without her wisdom, perseverance and inputs into every step of the development of my business idea. Nilda was there with me all the way as my “midwife” to deliver my idea into a new born business. Congratulations Nilda!

CARILED was very happy to join hands with the Small Business Development Center to work on the training of the BTL Park vendors. In general, i believe the training was informative, comprehensive and motivational. The delivery style and the facilitators were interactive, keeping the attention and zeal of the participants. The content covered was ideal for the type of vendors who participated and i am certain that they walked out from the training feeling more confident about doing business. The SBDC was very efficient in coordinating and organizing the training even though CARILED's payment was a bit delayed. For this, i extend sincere gratitude as i know the Center operates on a small budget and yet, you went ahead and commenced the training.

CARILED is grateful for this trust and confidence, and we look forward to working with the SBDC as we continue to encourage and support Local Economic Development in Belize. Please extend our gratitude to your dedicated team for their contribution to the successful training program.

The FINPYME Export Plus Workshop on International Marketing / Strategic Marketing for Export held at the George Price Center in Belmopan on Tuesday, July 23rd 2013, and sponsored in part by BELTRAIDE and the Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC), was one of the most informative and well taught workshops I have attended in my life!  Presenter Christophe Jacquemin had great knowledge of the subject matter and explained it in a way that was easily understood, exciting, sometimes funny and always entertaining! It was obvious to me that he had spent many years in marketing and was successful at it. His slide presentation was very illustrative and appropriate as it covered various aspects of marketing including Communication, Brand Position, Vision, Objectives, Strategy, Action Plans, Product, Price, Publicity, and Product Life Cycle Management. Many thanks to Mr Jacquemin and all at BELTRAIDE and the IIC who helped put on a first class workshop!

A Foam Called Away!!!

Belize Foam and Furniture Ltd is a family owned and operated business and was established in 1984. For about 20 years the company operated with approximately 5 to 7 employees and in 2008 with plans to expand and diversity, we approached BELTRAIDE for assistance. We were granted a fiscal incentive and started investing in more raw materials, machinery and trucks for delivery. With that assistance, and a very efficient and friendly staff at BELTRAIDE over the last 4 years, we have seen steady growth and can boast of having better quality products that's compatible to anything imported.

Believe it or not, we now employ 18 people. I don't think any of this would have been possible without making that first step by going to BELTRAIDE.

Pancho’s Auto Rental (Tourism)

I have been investing and operating in Belize for 28 years in the Auto Rental Industry as Pancho’s Auto Rental. For me investing in Belize was a challenge at first but if you put your all you can succeed. About eight years ago when the competition got tougher I got assistance from BELTRAIDE through a Fiscal Incentive Program. Therefore, we could have invested in newer vehicles and rent them at a reasonable rate since we got exempted from paying import duty. I am grateful for BELTRAIDE for facilitating us and I would encourage everyone that wants to invest in Belize to consult with them.

El Secreto (Tourism)

The experience we have had so far investing in Belize is highly positive. It is an interesting country to invest in and has the proper laws to protect investment. Belize is also an important emerging tourism market and the government has understood and supported foreign investment.
Beltraide has been very important part of our success, as their staff has been more than helpful and pushing us to make things happen, we are truly impressed with the professionalism and friendliness the staff has shown towards us and our project in many ways and to incentive foreign investment on the country, and make our investment even more attractive.
