By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Belize City Mayor Bernard Wagner and Councillor Edmund Kwan presented certificates and start-up contributions to graduates of 3rd and 4th cohorts of Belize City Accelerator Program (BCAP).
Councillor Kwan is responsible for local economic development and small businesses.
A press release by the Belize City Council said Axiory Global Limited and BELTRAIDE are providing ‘significant support’ to the program.
“The members of these cohorts are being provided with the necessary trainings and tools they need to lead profitable and sustainable businesses in the Belize City community,” said the City Council.
“Since the program’s launch in 2020, the Belize City Accelerator Program has proven to be consistent and resolute in its goal to empower Belize City residents, strengthen our economy and create a society built on sustainable development as outlined in both our 2018 and 2021 manifestos.”
The Belize City Council said that 82% of the first set of businesses established in 2020 through BCAP are still thriving today. So far, BCAP has assisted over 40 micro-enterprises and maintains its relationship with these businesses.
“We look forward to continuing to empower Belize City residents with great business ideas and remain committed to fueling the entrepreneurship spirit,” said the press release.
The Belize City Council thanked its Local Economic Development unit for managing this program, Axiory Global Limited and BELTRAIDE for their steady partnership, and the entrepreneurs for trusting the Council in assisting them with their visions.
