Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 23, 2012
In an age where entrepreneurs and small business owners are struggling, a Chicago based company aims to change the way entrepreneurs connect with venture capital and put a positive spin on small business education. Venture Connects was founded by a group of small business owners and entrepreneurs in order to help others businesses and create more jobs for the U.S. economy.
From startups to growing companies that need capital, Venture Connects proprietary platform excels in connecting small business owners, accredited investors and value added service providers on one system. “At the end of the day, it’s all about creating jobs in this slowed economy. It’s tough out there, and not all entrepreneurs have the knowledge or resources to move forward with their business ventures. As small business owners and entrepreneurs we knew we had to create an avenue to help people with these specific issues, and that is why Venture Connects was started” – said RJ Pahura, CEO.
The national platform for Venture Connects launches on January 1, 2013. The company has 3 main focuses: entrepreneurs, investors, and value added service providers. They see knowledge as a huge opportunity for the entrepreneur and are therefore forming strategic partnerships nationally with niche firms that specialize in helping small business. Venture Connects has developed a platform that can also promote special value added service providers at discounted rates to their members. After all, small businesses have to be budget conscious when starting out.
Venture Connects has also formed a strategic partnership with The Small Business Advocacy Council (SBAC) http://www.sbacil.org to gain instant momentum and co-promote the platform. Venture Connects is also working on partnerships with Entrepreneur Inc. and other major foundations throughout the United States. Venture Connects is offering discounted membership to everyone who submits their information prior to the official launch January 1, 2013 on their website; http://www.ventureconnects.biz.
