“The Bahamas is perfectly poised to become a leading nearshore center operating between the USA and the Caribbean and Latin America,” said Kazarian. “I am excited to help develop the markets, products and financial services through ArawakX.” ArawakX currently offers crowdfunding to startups and high growth companies seeking to raise between $500,000 and $5 million. “We are competing with the rest of the world for raising capital.

ArawakX has already launched 3 companies and had one successful raise of about $2 million. There are currently over 200 companies awaiting funding. Additionally, over 6,000 people have registered on the platform with about 2,000 of them having pledged for stocks. The ArawakX is a privately held company that intends to one day become completely public by floating its shares.

“With a major talent like Dick Kazarian we think we are well on way to becoming a major international player” says Rahming.For more information on ArawakX go to
