You have the dream, the drive and the dedication, but traditional sources of financing can be difficult to obtain.   The Bahamas Entrepreneurial Venture Fund Ltd. " the fund"  was established by the Bahamas Government as the vehicle to manage and administer the Government funded Venture Capital Fund for small and medium size business developments throughout The Bahamas.

We are looking to assist the brightest and the best Bahamian Entrepreneurs who have great business ideas from a wide range of industries.   Venture capital is money provided by professionals who invest alongside management in young, rapidly growing companies that have the potential to develop into significant economic contributors. Venture capital is an important source of equity for start-up companies.  Professionally managed venture capital firms generally are private partnerships or closely-held companies funded by private and public funds, endowment funds, foundations, corporations, wealthy individuals or foreign investors.


     Venture capitalists generally:

  • Finance new and rapidly growing companies

  • Purchase equity securities

  • Assist in the development of new products or services

  • Add value to the company through active participation

  • Take higher risks with the expectation of higher rewards

  • Have a long-term orientation

When considering an investment, venture capitalists carefully screen the technical and business merits of the proposed company. Venture capitalists only invest in a small percentage of the businesses they review and have a long-term perspective. Going forward, they actively work with the company’s management by contributing their experience and business savvy gained from helping other companies with similar growth challenges.  Venture capitalists mitigate the risk of venture investing by developing a portfolio of young companies in a single venture fund.
