Oil giant ExxonMobil on Saturday, July 28, continued its efforts to support Guyanese small businesses by being the lead sponsor of the ‘Uncapped Marketplace’ held at the Leonora Track and Field Center, on the West Coast of Demerara.

The event saw in excess of 50 agro-processors having the opportunity to market their products free of cost at the Guyana Manufacturing and Services Association (GMSA) hosted event.

Speaking to the importance of the venture, ExxonMobil Guyana Country Manager Rod Henson said the company sponsored the event as a means of supporting small business development in the South-American nation.

“ExxonMobil is very excited to be here at this Uncapped Marketplace event. We’re essentially supporting our fellow businessmen, business women in agriculture, agro-processing business,” he stated.

The oil company’s official reminded that the event, which cost just over 6 million dollars, is not the first of its kind, saying “This is the second Market Place event that GMSA has put on. They do a fantastic job with these events,” adding that it has “allowed these exhibitors to come for free.
“Mostly these are small, very small businesses trying to get their product to a consumer, get it on the market, get it on the shelves,” he emphasized.

The event was aimed at providing a platform for small businesses in Guyana to expose their products to a wider audience and network in order to expand their ventures.
