Business radio show launched

The Cayman Islands Investment Bureau has joined with Hurley’s Entertainment to bring Rooster 101 listeners Focus on Business, a weekly showcase of Cayman’s entrepreneurs and small businesses.

Focus on Business is aired every Friday morning on Cayman Crosstalk on Rooster 101.9 from 8.30 to 9, hosted by Cayman Crosstalk presenters Austin Harris and Ellio Solomon.

Focus on Business invites small business owners to join Austin and Ellio live in the Cayman Crosstalk studios to give listeners an overview of their business ventures and details on how consumers can contact them. The show gives local entrepreneurs the chance to tell their stories of how they got started and how far they’ve come.

Focus on Business also highlights workshops, events and training programmes offered locally for small business owners, or individuals in the planning stages of business ownership.

‘The Investment Bureau has seen a significant increase in entrepreneurial interest in the past year, with more and more people coming to us for guidance on everything from business licensing procedures and developing business plans, to how to expand an existing business,’ said CIIB Executive Director Dax Basdeo.

‘That’s what the Investment Bureau is here for and we are excited to be the official sponsor of a programme like Focus on Business that offers support for local entrepreneurs.’
