It is because of these very reasons that Grow Venture Community was inevitable. In fact when we don’t like how something works then amazing things can happen, especially when we have the tools to enforce that change. “Ordinary people can be instruments of the sublime,” wrote the author and playwright, Alan Bennett. What we don’t like is how many of us live, how we work, trade, are governed and how we learn. So, we are in the midst of renegotiating those relationships. Don’t be fooled that these 2.0 communication tools and legal frameworks that amplify the unique human talents for cooperation, are accidental. We have become the instruments of the sublime, midwives in helping to bring into a world a society that is not locked down by the hierarchical structures of the past, and of course financial markets play a key role, there are simply no exceptions.

  • buffalobuddy buffalobuddy In my so far fruitless campaign to obtain investor funding for my pet project, Better Than New Auto Centre LLC, I have found a curious bias by investors in favor of 'high tech' investments over anything else. It seems investors are all looking for the next Apple or some similar adventure, willing to risk millions on any high tech startup, most of which turn out to just be a money pit, rather than achieve a

    really great return from a well thought out, well managed, good old 'meat and potatoes' venture with a new, exciting twist. If this trend continues, I fear for the hopes and dreams of myriads of new entrepreneurs who have great vision but lack the funds to put their vision into action. Personally, my project offers investors a 3 year

    return of approximately 560% on an investment 92% secured by hard collateral IN A PROVEN HIGH DEMAND BUSINESS, yet I haven't found a legitimate investor even remotely interested in even talking. Something is seriously wrong with that kind of thinking

  • MichaelAtencio Mike Atencio, Teacher, 1 -5 Special Ed at Ruston Elementary School Ruston Louisiana As a lifelong student of psychology (law enforcement and educationally) GrowVC is right on target. In describing the financial meltdown of markets and infact the lesser number of VC funders, it has become critical for small start ups to find capital elsewhere. The only way to do so is through networking. Unfortunately, VC'ers tend to look for only low or no risk ventures due to the economy worldwide.

    What we need as small businesses and start ups is the mentality of the industrial age investors that had the courage and patience, the moxie, if you will, to stand up and revitalize the economy instead of hedge and protect. The Bonsai tree grows in any way you want. You have to trim, shape and grow it into the large trees which take 30 years to reach maturity. If you do nothing, the tree dies.

    The same can be said for a start up or small business. GrowVC is a good, and smart place to start. We need more capital flowing in the veins of the system to go with the networking. Then we all prosper. Investors draw more investors like moths to a flame but the flame has to be lit. It takes fearless risk and some faith. That's what makes investing exciting.
