I’ve worked as a mentor for VentureCapital.org for more than twenty-three years now before getting into the real estate business. It has become something of a passion for me because I get to have a window to the companies of the future. And, I get to assist them in getting ready to raise Venture Capital so they can become a company of the future. It’s really a good thing for everyone involved. The latest company I’ve been working with, Citygro.com is no exception to this experience.
Citygro.com is the next generation of consumer discounts. I think of it as a coupon book that’s customized to me and the coupons never end! In fact, I am so excited about this company; I’m going to be working with Citygro.com to help me increase my own business. How will this experience help me grow my own real estate business?
It help with my real estate because as I provide Citygro.com with new members (clients, jumpstarter past clients and future clients with access to the Citygro.com network), I’m able to receive consumer analytic back as an exchange. That means I’ll receive assistance in understanding my Summit County Property customers better while giving them access to discounts at hundreds of businesses they already use. You can say that people who work with me save lots of money.
And, you can say businesses that I work with save, raise and make lots of money? Saving money is another way of making money! That’s what Citygro.com does. It saves people lots of money and it makes lots of money! This young company has already grossed more $140,000 in 2011 alone. How many start-up stage companies match that seven month history? Not very many!
So, they’re the perfect candidate to raise angel and venture capital. And, I feel great about being able to help Citygro.com save money now, when they need to, so they can thrive while they’re raising angel and venture capital. We help them so they can become a $250,000,000 company within the next five years. That is why as a mentor for VentureCapital.org, I’ve seen creative, uniqueness and an exciting process for companies with such opportunity in front of them.
So, if you’re an entrepreneur looking to save time and money as well as get expert assistance in the process of raising angel or venture capital, look for a Venture Capital organization near you. A mentoring team will prepare you to go out and raise money in a way you never could have done on your own. There are many mentors and experts who can help you raise venture capital or connect with angel investors. I’d love to see your company as a window to our future!
