Alternative Business Funding Helps a Unique Gym Open in NJ Serving Special Needs.

Pango Financial proved to be a valuable resource in funding entrepreneurial efforts in his small business

Unlike mainstream fitness and activity centers, Helping Hands Gym provides Physical, Adaptive, and Cognitive fitness programs exclusively designed for individuals and families that are faced with Autism & Developmental Special Needs. Understandably, mainstream fitness centers are not adequately structured or staffed to assess individuals with special behavioral and physical needs characteristic of Autism, ADD, ADHD, Asperger, or Down Syndrome and therefore cannot provide the appropriate specialized instruction necessary for this community of Special Needs individuals.

This unique business model celebrated its grand opening September 12th. Dan Dellamarine is the founder and President of Helping Hands Gym. He had the passion and desire to start this specialized gym. This area of fitness is virtually unexplored and has created a significant demand for programs that are inviting, caring, and effective. Due to the business’ exclusive focus he needed a mechanism to fund his business that was outside of conventional bank loans. He evaluated alternative funding. Dan reached out to a trusted SCORE advisor from the New Jersey chapter and was recommended to speak with Pango Financial.    

This dream was brought to reality through the innovative funding solution called the DreamSpark™ plan with the help of Pango Financial. The DreamSpark plan gave Dan the opportunity to rollover his existing retirement funds and invest his desired amount in his business as working capital to start and grow. His company stock is one of his plan’s offered investment options. The DreamSpark plan is a qualified employee benefit plan like a 401(k) and also provides the traditional retirement savings benefits. Pango Financial provides the DreamSpark plan to business owners nationwide like Dan. Dan shared that “Pango Financial proved to be a valuable resource in funding entrepreneurial efforts in his small business.” 

To help celebrate the grand opening of Helping Hands Gym President of Pango Financial, Candice Caruso, came out to show her support to her client Dan. “My greatest success is seeing other individuals achieve their dream of business ownership and providing solutions to meet their funding needs. At Pango Financial we are passionate in marrying alternative and conventional funding to enable entrepreneurship,” said Candice. “Dan and his work with Helping Hands Gym is a great example of the American Dream.”
