FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – If you’re a business owner in need of funds to grow or expand your business, a free workshop can show you how. Business and project developers seeking to raise capital are being offered a free opportunity to learn how to access finance by the Broward County Library in Fort Lauderdale this fall.

“Accessing Capital – from Start-Up To Major Funding,” is the theme of the workshop being presented by Felicia J. Persaud, CEO of Invest Caribbean, (ICN, LLC), the global private sector investment agency of the Caribbean.

Registered participants will learn actual financial options available through ICN to easily fund a start-up; access a loan to expand a small to medium business; get a cash advance on invoices to keep a business running until a customer pays and how to raise from US $1 million up to 1 billion to buy land or a commercial property or advance major global developments like resorts or other infrastructure projects.

Only a few slots are open for this event. is Registration required at ICN, in its seven years of existence, has been the consistent conduit between private and institutional funders’ and governments and private sector developers in the Caribbean region in particular. For more information, visit
