Panama's Next Millionaires

E-mail Print PDF

 Having lived in the interior of Panama (defined as anywhere outside Panama City) for three years now, I have learned a few things - such as who the next millionaires are going to be.

Here is my list. The first person to open an English-speaking/bilingual service in:


1) appliance repair - I have ten customers for them right now
2) first three companies to build secure self-storage units (especially air conditioned units)
3) honest mechanic (one is just opening up in Rio Hato - keep your fingers crossed his prices are reasonable)
4) plumber who actually shows up when they say they do
5) video rental shop with English language movies - (could be combined with an English-language bookstore and coffee shop)
6) first person to open a water-park 
7) First company to offer coper ion and ozone generator water purification systems for pools, houses and spas (chemical free pools). Chlorine is a people and plant killer.
8) First person to sell and install solar panel units/systems
9) First person to open a new Inn in Santa Clara - we are losing two of the three Inn’s we have in the next three months, as they are being converted to condo towers - there is almost nowhere to stay near Panama’s best beach. North-American/European standards needed.
10) First person to open a Tim Horton's franchise on the highway.
I will add more business ideas as we go along, but the good news is that Panama is one of the easiest jurisdictions to open a business in that I have ever researched.
If you are interested in getting involved in any of these business’s let me know - I am putting people together who want to work or invest in these businesses.
