INVEST CARIBBEAN NOW is the definitive private sector investment agency of the Caribbean. It is based in America's financial capital of the world, New York City.
ICN, in its five years of existence, has been the consistent conduit between private and institutional funders and governments and private sector developers in the Caribbean region.
It has been lauded by both regional governments and top global CEOs alike including Sir Richard Branson, for its effectiveness in being the matchmaker between funders and developers.
The company works with small to large enterprises to secure low interest debt capital of US$5,000 to $500 million through its many partners. ICN is currently working with the government of Saint Martin on raising US$350 million for the development of its harbor and water front project and Antigua & Barbuda raising over US$200 million in loans.
ICN works through the establishment of partnerships with similar global entities to promote investments and dialogue on a global scale. This includes promotion and presentations in Europe, China and Latin America.
ICN offers a number of services to investors as well as diverse investment and partnership opportunities.
