U.S. Embassy Belmopan has partnered with the Belize Trade and Investment Development Service (BELTRAIDE), through its Small Business Development Center (SBDCBelize), to host an entrepreneurship workshop in Belize on December 14-16, 2021. The Belize Entrepreneurship Fest is a conference that seeks to connect, empower, inspire, and train entrepreneurs in Belize. It provides a platform to discuss challenges and opportunities faced by Belizean entrepreneurs during the Covid-19 pandemic and foster business growth for economic development.

The three-day fest includes guest speakers, workshops, and the opportunity to access seed capital for business transformation and continuity. The Belize Entrepreneurship Fest will target 30 participants who will be divided into three groups of 10 persons, with each group attending a specific location in Belize City, Orange Walk, and Dangriga per day.

Participants will also receive knowledge on the essential elements of a business pitch and how to start an elevator pitch. A Pitch Competition will be held among participants and one winner from each group will receive a seed capital of USD $500.00.

The deadline for applications is 5 p.m. on Wednesday, December 8. Apply here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1dJA869RBkzZBPUsolsZiwTkfAzGx5IrQ8315sLj1id0/viewform?ts=61aa4450&edit_requested=true
