We see this as an opportunity to build an enterprise that gives back to our veterans by providing them an opportunity to reenter the workforce, learn new skills, and be a part of growing business.
FRISCO, Texas (PRWEB) March 15, 2018
Scoreboard Ventures announces the investment and partnership with Northwest Arkansas based EcoVet Furniture. The newly established partnership with EcoVet owner and former Walmart executive, Mike Hagood, represents Scoreboard Ventures continued goal of finding businesses with a solid foundation, but in need of capital, technology, and marketing assistance.
“The investment and partnership with Scoreboard Ventures will provide EcoVet with the necessary capital and resources to help us grow beyond Northwest Arkansas and create a much-needed e-commerce presence.” said Mike Hagood, Owner/CEO of EcoVet. “The Scoreboard team have already made an immediate impact by introducing technology for our business processes and new marketing and digital strategies.”
This investment represents a core philosophy of Scoreboard Ventures: Social Capitalism. The Scoreboard team believe it is possible to impact a community by supporting social causes - which in this case is sustainability and employing veterans – along with the opportunity to create a healthy and profitable business.
“A business that positively impacts our environment and positively impacts the lives of those who served our country is unique.” said Brian Dick, Co-Founder, Scoreboard Ventures. “We see this as an opportunity to build an enterprise that gives back to our veterans by providing them an opportunity to reenter the workforce, learn new skills, and be a part of growing business.”
Scoreboard and EcoVet intend to rebrand the furniture company in the second quarter of this year and update the current website to offer an e-commerce solution in the third quarter.
