Panel of Experts to Discuss “Investing In Southwest Florida Businesses”

Above Board Chamber of Florida presents “Investing in Southwest Florida Businesses,” a unique opportunity for local professionals to hear from a panel of experts on how Southwest Florida businesses can attract foreign investors. This luncheon will take place on Tuesday, October 15th from 11:30 – 1 p.m. at The Landings Yacht, Golf and Tennis Club, located at 4425 S. Landings Drive in Fort Myers.

The panel of experts includes Ita Nemoytin, an attorney who was appointed by Governor Scott as the Regional Conflict Counsel for the Second DCA; Frank Abernathy, attorney and owner of EFS Investment Partners, who dedicates time to fostering positive political relations between the U.S. and other countries; and Leonardo Garcia, owner of the Hispanic American Business Alliance (HABA), who serves on the Dominican Republic Presidential board for Dominicans Abroad – Florida Chapter and has been collaborating with SWFL International Airport to bring direct flights between SW Florida and Latin America and the Caribbean.

The panel will discuss why Southwest Florida is attractive to foreign investors, and what foreign investment would mean to our local economy.
