Skydiving - a wonderful spectacle that has been seen in Belize only briefly. I want to bring it to Belize full time.

To achieve my aim I am looking for Venture Capital Investor(s). The start-up is not cheap and am looking for investment of US$150K.

In return I will offer an investor a very good APR on their money and a percentage share in the business. I am happy to provide my business plan and projected financials to serious enquiries.

If anyone is interested PM me with a contact name and number and I will call you to discuss.

You already have a jump plane?

Hey Skydivd
Why not contact the Shark Tank - ABC TV?

In answer to both questions no and no.

I looked at renting an aircraft of the type I would need, but the ferry costs, minimums and hourly rates would make it very difficult to price the jump and tandem tickets at a suitable rate. The best option is to buy the aircraft outright hence the large investment requirement.

I had never heard of Shark Tank until I googled it, maybe as a very, very, very last resort

I would suggest that you do a little more research on this plan, JMHO.

I seriously doubt this would be a money - maker in Belize. Perhaps look at past posts about the guy who did jumps (had an annual event in San Pedro)...he took his business elsewhere. But good luck. When you have a dream, be willing to look at all options, and see where it takes you.


Words have power. Speak it into existence.

I know RIch very well and he took his business elsewhere for more reasons than making money. I stand firm in my belief that a full time skydiving venture in Belize will make money, perhaps not millions, but it will be self sustaining and profitable.

Thanks for the good luck wish though it is appreciated.
