SmartMoney Startups helps entrepreneurs raise money from high quality investors faster than any other program available. Most entrepreneurs are frustrated with how much time...more the fundraising process takes, especially when pitching investors who don’t really understand their business.
Our programs provide entrepreneurs with a step-by-step process that dramatically accelerates the process of depositing a check from investors that bring a lot more than just cash to the table.
Managed inventory of electronic components, fleet generators, vehicles, personnel and equipment. Managed logistics for combat...more training operations involving 22 person self-sustaining insertion teams to provide remote radar monitoring operations in classified locations. Managed operating budget for a stand-alone radar and communications squadron providing air control support from the ground and via AWACS.
Jeff is awesome and highly experienced in entrepreneurship and fundraising. 25+ years with many, many wins. He's also a former Marine which makes him even more awesome in my book. I am very excited...more to have him as a connection and advisor as we move forward! Todd Forsman
