Link-Caribbean Awards US$125000 To Five Caribbean Firms – Caribbean360.com (subscription)

Posted: February 7, 2017 at 8:40 am

Barbadian recipient Shannon Clarke from Carepoint was one of the five.

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, Monday February 6, 2017 Five Caribbean businesses are at a stage closer to securing private investment having each received US$25,000 through the LINK-Caribbean Investment Readiness Grant programme.

The five firms are Carepoint and Caribbean Transit Solutions from Barbados; Bluedot Media and Innovative Menu Solutions Ltd from Jamaica and SystemIz Incorporated from Trinidad and Tobago.

According to Chris McNair, Manager for Competitiveness and Innovation at Caribbean Export, the grants will be used to assist firms in making the necessary improvements to their businesses with the aim of attracting greater investment from private investors, such as Business Angels within the next six months.

The firms were selected from a slate of 134 applicants from across the region, 7 of which were afforded the opportunity to pitch their businesses to a panel of judges in the hope of securing an investment readiness grant. LINK-Caribbean, a programme of the Caribbean Export Development Agency (Caribbean Export) supports the development of an early stage Investor eco-system within the region. Launched last September, it is funded by the World Bank and sponsored by Canada.

For many years Caribbean entrepreneurs were disadvantaged because of a lack of funding opportunities in comparison to our first world counterparts, with the LINK Caribbean grant we now have an opportunity to show the world that great, disruptive companies can be borne from here, expressed Larren Peart of Bluedot Media.

Barbadian recipient Shannon Clarke from Carepoint expressed his humility for his selection and spoke of looking forward to the guidance from Business Angels and importantly their assistance to help push the adoption of ICT in the delivery of healthcare throughout the Caribbean.

Khalil Bryan of Caribbean Transport Solutions, also from Barbados, highlighted some of the key initiatives hosted by World Bank and Caribbean Export.

Starting from 2015, their team hosted entrepreneur sessions to sensitize us to key items that would prepare us to raise capital to providing support as we deploy capital from the IR grant. They have truly been a catalyst to improve the investment climate in the region from building angel groups to disbursing grant funding to prepare us for investment. We appreciate the role that they have played and would encourage them to continue in this vein as entrepreneurship will truly be a catalyst to impact the economies of our region, he said.

Aun Rahman, Financial Sector Specialist for the World Bank who also has responsibility for EPICs Access to Finance programme, stated that the Bank is encouraged with the initial response to LINK-Caribbeans first grant cycle.

We are looking forward to building a stronger pipeline of more applicants who will be eligible to become beneficiaries under the programme in future grant cycles, Rahman said.

In addition to these grants, LINK-Caribbean provides other support activities to stimulate early stage investing in the region. It facilitates the development of deal-flow for early-stage investors through the Regional Angel Investor Network (RAIN).

We strongly encourage entrepreneurs and investors to join RAIN to uncover new investment opportunities throughout the Caribbean, added McNair.

Virginia company to help NATO train Afghan troops

Posted: January 9, 2015 at 12:49 am

WASHINGTON, Jan. 8 (UPI) — NATO is to receive advisory and assistance services from a U.S. counterterrorism company in the training of Afghanistan’s national security forces.

Virginia-headquartered A-T Solutions said its services — on the strategic and tactical levels — would be conducted from the International Security Assistance Force and Resolute Support mission headquarters in Kabul, the Afghan capital.

Resolute Support is the name given by NATO to its training and assistance activities in the country following termination of direct involvement of NATO forces in combat operations against the Taliban. The U.S. component to the program is called Operation Freedom’s Sentinel.

A-T Solutions said that under the NATO contract it will develop, design and present field training material and courses to ISAF/RS advisers on advisory skills, cultural awareness, insider threat, security force assistance and other subjects.

The company will also consolidate lessons learned from training operations, which will be presented to allied forces in theater and at predeployment centers.

“We are honored to be working with NATO to support this vitally important mission,” said Dennis Kelly, president and CEO of A-T Solutions. “We look forward to working closely with the Resolute Support team and Afghan National Security Forces to deliver effective advisory support and the most comprehensive training programs available to help secure communities in Afghanistan against the terrorist threat.”

Information on the contract’s period of performance and monetary value were not disclosed.

Healthline and National Psoriasis Foundation Partner for Social Media Initiative Aimed to Empower and Support …

Posted: January 5, 2015 at 6:43 pm

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 05, 2015

Healthline.com, a leading source of timely health information, news and resources, today announced it is partnering with the National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF), the worlds largest nonprofit serving millions of Americans with psoriatic disease, to launch a new social media initiative aimed at supporting and empowering those who are living with psoriasis. Psoriasis is the most prevalent autoimmune disease in the U.S., impacting as many as 7.5 million Americans.

Psoriatic disease has a profound impact on peoples emotional and physical well-being, and people with psoriasis often describe feeling lonely, isolated and embarrassed, said Noe Baker, public relations manager at the National Psoriasis Foundation. The more that people with psoriatic disease are able to connect with others through online and share experiences, the less isolating the disease can be. Social media helps many people with psoriatic disease realize that others know just what theyre going through.

People can participate in two ways:

It’s imperative for psoriasis sufferers to know they are not alone, said Alisha Bridges, who has been dealing with psoriasis for 20 years. The biggest help in my coming out with this disease was meeting others who were conquering psoriasis and refusing to be ashamed. The You’ve Got This campaign is a great way to connect others through the use of social media.

We know from creating other support communities for HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis and bipolar disorder that people living with chronic illness really value hearing from those who are also affected by it. Insights from fellow community members can be extremely impactful, especially for those who are recently diagnosed and coming to terms with their new reality, said Tracy Rosecrans, VP of marketing for Healthline.com. Now, through Healthlines partnership with the NPF, the psoriasis community has its own place to share personal journeys and spread the message to others that they are not aloneand theyve got this.

About the National Psoriasis Foundation National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) is the world’s largest organization serving people with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. Our priority is to provide the information and services for people to take control of their condition, while increasing research to find a cure. In addition to serving more than 2.1 million people annually through our patient and professional education and advocacy initiatives, NPF has funded more than $11 million in psoriatic disease research. Visit us online at http://www.psoriasis.org or call 800.723.9166. Follow NPF on Facebook and Twitter.
