Two-month intensive education programme now available for new and seasoned investors in the Cayman Islands.
George Town, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands (5 October 2023) – Enterprise Cayman, in collaboration with Cayman Enterprise City (CEC), the Cayman Islands Investor Angel Society (CIIAS), and Clockwork recently announce the launch of an angel investor education programme titled, Private Investment Mechanics. The two-month training series is designed to empower individuals with the tools to take on private investment opportunities and support seed and pre-seed business ventures in the Cayman Islands.
“We’re excited to add yet another component to our growing entrepreneurship ecosystem, in the form of a vibrant angel investor network that will focus on supporting the development of innovative home-grown projects,” said Charlie Kirkconnell, CEO at CEC and Director of Enterprise Cayman.
The investment education programme includes five webinar modules and concludes with an Angel Investor Pitch Night event and post pitch debrief. Throughout the programme, attendees will have access to global professionals, resources, and live investment opportunities presented by participants of the Enterprise Cayman Launch Labs Incubator programme.
Professionally led by a team from Clockwork, instructors will guide participants through a journey of discovery, offering a detailed overview of the exciting and growing asset class of private investments. The curriculum covers everything from the fundamentals to specific strategies, emphasising practical applications for both individuals and groups. While broad market and macroeconomic themes are explored, the course’s primary focus remains on the art of conducting and managing private investments in companies, funds, and special-purpose vehicles (SPVs).
“Participants will gain a comprehensive understanding backed by real-world examples that covers the key pillars of successful angel investment,” said Cory Shea course instructor and Founding Partner at Clockwork. “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to lead the program and work directly with Cayman’s investors.”
The Angel Investment Education Programme begins Wednesday, 18 October 2023, and concludes with a post-pitch debrief Tuesday, 12 December 2023. Course fees are CI $99 for the two-month, professionally led programme and go directly towards the growth and development of the Enterprise Cayman non-profit organisation.
