Hello!

I am a business owner and CEO from Europe, producing pharmaceuticals solutions, invented and patented to be sold worldwide. The current portfolio contains 3 products (1. an antiseptic WITHOUT alcohol; 2. A product similar to Betadine, but far more effective; 3. A product similar to Betadine, but for pre- and intra- surgical use). All these 3 products benefit of an original recipe and lower prices than the competitors.

We are looking for angel investors or venture capitalists in order to help us develop the business worlwide. Contact me at catalin.vintu@wrygroup.ro

Does the #SBA have any loan programs for startups?

Answer: Yes, there is a program called Community Advantage which provides loans to startups and other businesses that have been underserved. The focus of the Community Advantage program is to provide loans to start ups, veteran owned businesses and businesses which operate in low-income areas. Unlike a standard 7A loan, these loans are not made by banks. Instead, the loans are made by non-profit lenders like CDC Small Business Finance.

Similarly, there is the SBA Microloan program, which provides loans up to $50,000 that are also delivered directly by non-profit, mission-focused lenders.

Always be prepared to sell your business ideas using a brief elevator pitch, including who you are, what you do, and what makes your company unique.

Startup Lesson: A “REAL” Contest to Combat Robocalls©

Are you on the “Do not call list”?  I am, and yet it seems almost nightly I am interrupted by robocalls offering me credit cards, insurance, solar panels, aluminum siding, and more.  I am either in the middle of supper preparation or actually eating but when I pick up and answer: “Hello”, a few clicks and some silence is all that greets me and I know I have been reached by a robocaller.  I normally hang up but I am not alone.  

The FTC has said: “Robocalls make up the largest number of complaints to both the Federal Communications Commission and the Federal Trade Commission. The FTC alone receives more than 200,000 robocall complaints per month.”

Robocalls have become so annoying and such a large source of complaints nationally that the FTC is offering a contest, the third in the last three years.  Called Robocalls: Humanity Strikes Back, it will have two phases, a “Qualifying Phase and a Final Phase”.

The Qualifying Phase:  Build a crowd-sourced honeypot. Your solution should enable people with landlines or mobile phones to identify robocalls and block or forward them to a honeypot. You can work alone or as a team. Your solution must be submitted by June 15, 2015.

The Final Phase: The top five scorers from the Qualifying Phase will move on to the Final Phase, where you must “seed” your honeypot to attract as many robocalls as you can. Seeding might include encouraging people to use your solution to forward robocalls to the honeypot, or listing a phone number associated with your solution where robocallers collect phone numbers. Points will be awarded for robocalls collected during DEFCON23, starting at 5 pm PT on August 5 and ending at 7 pm PT on August 8.

Prizes!
• First Prize - $25,000
• 2 Runners Up - $10,500 each
• 2 Additional Finalist - $2,000 each

If you are interested, sign up to get contest updates by email. Important information, like how to register and how to submit your entry, will be sent as it becomes available.  If you have questions please email: RobocallContest@ftc.gov.

So for you enterprising and tech-savvy entrepreneurs, this may be your path to fame and fortune.  At the very least, millions of suppers will not be interrupted nightly.

Does anyone know why is that crowd funding sites which are becoming so popular only feature up to 30 businesses to invest in? Is it difficult to get listed?

If you want to source in China you need to ask yourself these 5 questions.
The other day I read an interview with former GE CEO Jack Welch. In the interview he said of China “ China is a very difficult place to do business and you can’t just use simple Western techniques....

Quality is everything from the cotton to the art that decorates it, this is the reason why my shirts are 100% made in the USA. But even more important is knowing that you are not contributing to human exploitation in third world countries. #buysmart #Sweatshop-Free

Hi I am new in this community. I am a coffee producer, especially specialty coffee! We use no fertilizer but just manual labour to produce coffee parchment. I am thinking of going into green beans but need the right equipment and the funding. 

I have actually formed a cooperative for over 1500 people. I dont know if this is the right forum to getting all the support I could get.
