The Ministry of Tourism & Aviation and the Bahamas Development Bank sponsored a ‘Tourism Money Never Done’ workshop — linking small businesses and tourism on September 13 & 14 at the British Colonial Hilton. Presenters Patrick Rahming and Brendan Foulkes are pictured conducting lectures with aspiring entrepreneurs. The content of the workshop focused on “capturing the imagination of budding entrepreneurs who already have an inkling to start a tourism-related business and are seeking guidance and funding,” as described by Minister of Tourism & Aviation the Hon. Dionisio D’Aguilar in a previous event announcing the planned workshop. Up to $50,000 would be available from the Bahamas Development Bank for participants, depending on the project and its potential. Technical and management support would be provided by officials from the Small Business Development Centre (SBDC), the Tourism Development Corporation (TDC), and the Grand Bahama Port Authority.
