Christians in business!"
"Wow! What a concept!"
"Christians supporting Christians in business. What a concept!"
Welcome to the # 1 Christian angel investment platform in the world, for Christians, by Christians, originally launched as a simple blog in April, 2012! We are a group of committed Christians, with a simple goal. We simply strive to obey and serve our Lord, Jesus Christ, on a daily basis. We, who have been called into the world of business, are to be witnesses, by conducting our everyday business God's way, not man's way. God's Holy Bible gives each of us a simple, yet important command in the following verse:
2 Cor. 6:14 "Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?"
As Christians, when a verse starts with the words -"Do not...", we have been commanded by God, to obey. This is not a mild suggestion. God is commanding us not to be "unequally yoked" with non-Christian business partners, with whom you may be starting your "for Profit" business with. This includes both potential partners and potential investors.
The future of your company not only depends upon God's will, but also upon adequate funding, including seed, ramp-up and growth funding . You either have it or you don't! Now is the time for the next step is to see whether your business is viable and fundable. If not, we can help you! Remember, you only get ONE chance to make a first impression. Make it count!
Note: We charge NO FEES for our services involving your presentation to or funding by angel investors!
If you're a Christian entrepreneur who needs funding, you've arrived at the right place! Other than family, friends, a 401k/IRA or your own "piggy bank", the choices available, for entrepreneurs seeking funding, are as follows:
Angel Investors, Direct Public Offering (DPO) or Initial Public Offering (IPO);
Lending sources, i.e. banks, credit unions, SBA, etc;
VC or hedge funds, Private Equity (PE) or Mezzanine financing.
We can help you navigate the above funding paths, but the first step is to introduce yourself to us, at the starting point below. Then, we can help you introduce your business to the Christian angel investors in our Network and find the funding that you need.
Start Here TODAY!
Once you complete the above survey, we'll contact you shortly afterwards, to complete the process with a FREE professional review of your business plan. Our job is help you get as much funding as possible. We are not a brokerage, wealth management company or advisory. We simply offer a platform, whereby Christian entrepreneurs can meet Christian angel investors. No company has ever reached "first base", without wise counsel, a solid business plan, a unique product or service and validation that a market exists for said product or service. To get there, you'll need start up or growth capital and we can help you! We offer a variety of funding options for entrepreneurs.
We have lots of contacts with Christian angel investors, but there are many more out there. A recent report, shared by Christian friends on Wall Street, stated that US-based Christians possess over $2 Trillion worth of investment assets. 1% of Two Trillion dollars equals Twenty Billion dollars! Yes, Twenty Billion dollars! The current largest US VC firm is Accel Partners, with $10.8 billion Assets Under Management (AUM). Christians could own a fund that's double that amount, by investing just 1% of their investment dollars into a Christian venture fund. How many Christian owned companies could be supported with that amount?
INVESTORS: DO YOU KNOW about IRS Section 1202 that allows investors a tax exemption up to 100% on gains from Founders Stock?
Excerpt from the IRS website: "......Acquisition date of stock acquired after February 17, 2009.
When you are determining whether your exclusion is limited to 50%, 75%, or 100% of the gain from QSB stock, your acquisition date is considered to be the first day you held the stock to be determined after applying the holding period rules in section 1223."
