Press Release: Anguilla, Monday, October 22, 2012

Anguilla-Counts, Inc. is pleased to announce its partnership with Grow VC Group, which represents crowd funding, new investment models, global business development programs and service providers for startups and investors. The Group is a global pioneer and leader in the startup investment and business development market. Through this partnership Anguilla-Counts will use infrastructure from Crowd Valley (part of the Grow VC Group) to build an online community of startups, experts and investors.

Anguilla has led the world in a number of exciting advances particularly in technologies, legislation and cyberspace. Anguilla was the first country to conduct a national census using hand-held computers; the first country to have digital signature legislation; the first country to have a fully online 24/7 companies registry – “ACORN”, and many more.

Lynwood Bell, Managing Director of Anguilla-Counts (together with associated companies Global Commerce, Inc., Span-Hansa Group Limited, Hansa Finance and Trust BV, and Hansa Company Limited) says: “Anguilla’s size (32 square miles), British stability, zero tax, incubator-scale costs and efficiencies… makes our country an ideal residence for startups. Having recently renewed treaties and agreements with many major jurisdictions we have strengthened their endorsements for our active, legitimate, international businesses which have economic purpose and transparency. Indeed, a number of the governments of these treaty partners provide generous tax incentives to their nationals to invest in Anguilla as a way of encouraging their own globalization. Our “Certificate of Intellectual Property Residence” (“CIPR”) for the six technology revolutions of info, bio, nano, robo, socio-cogno and energy is unique and is already drawing startups and subsidiaries from around the world. Working with Grow VC to fund these startups through innovative and balanced “crowdsourcing” legislation will insure that Anguilla “counts” as an international centre of excellence.”

Paul Higgins, COO of Crowd Valley, says: “The Grow VC Group has already been involved with over 4000 startups through our teams in all major markets on six continents. Crowd Valley offers the technology infrastructure and the tools to empower and enable business ideas to be launched, managed, supported and funded with more structure, whilst at the same time enabling the race to success to start much earlier. Anguilla is an excellent example of how a national community can be a seamless part of our business network and in turn, Anguilla can make its unique attributes available to all of our other network partners. We wish to establish a presence in all the most entrepreneurial countries on the planet and Anguilla is one of them.”
