On Finance & Investments
With Christopher Lewis
Group CEO of Eastern Credit Union
How on earth do we get capital or investors onboard for our great big idea’s! Where do we even start? When everybody thinks of starting their own businesses, these are 2 major fears that come up right from the beginning. Many believe that you need massive amounts of capital, months and months worth of savings or that they need to get investors involved right from the gate.
So in this episode, we are bringing to the Digital Age a man who is well known and regarded in the business world. He is the former CEO of Invest TT and is the current Group CEO of Eastern Credit Union, Mr Christopher Lewis and we are going to have a really crucial conversation on what entrepreneurs should be doing when getting started in their ventures.
We will be breaking down what is needed to get capital, things to look out for when approaching investors and also taking a look at if we even need capital to launch our businesses.
Are entrepreneurs born or are they built in schools with entrepreneur degree programs? We will be breaking down how people can become entrepreneurs and should school be a pathway into becoming one.
One thing often overlooked is the environment that entrepreneurs need to be nurtured and supported when creating their businesses. We will be looking at the new initiatives being started by Eastern Credit Union to foster an environment where entrepreneurs can excel.
As we here in the Caribbean are going through our second wave of Covid, many businesses will be forced to adapt or close down, without any chance of coming back to life. As much as their are doors closing to the old lifestyle as we know it, there are many new opportunities for us here in the Caribbean.
This conversation with Christopher Lewis is integral to the growth and empowerment for Entrepreneurs, to get out there and start creating new services & products, for the new world that we are entering.
This is the chance that many of us have been waiting for. Business no longer cares what color you are, race, your last name or where you are from. Technology has leveled the playing field for us all. It is now up to us to spot the opportunities, gain the necessary skills needed and take the leap of faith.
