This is where we will change the nature and the very history of Akron, Ohio's  "Economic Growth, Health, Wealth & Prosperity".

Now we want to raise the bar on Akron's growth. 

As we all know, money is the key to any successful project launch, health and sustainability. Therefore, we decided to take special care to undergird our "Real Talk Real Deals" Business Model with an effective "Economic Development Program". As we begin our launch into the marketplace our primary focus is to diligently work with the City of Akron, Ohio and it's finest minds to co-develop a successful Akron Business Environment. This initiative will be a great opportunity to build out futuristic properties that are designed to revitalize, grow and repopulate entire regions we agree to co-develop! That's what we have set out to do here. 

A house is only as strong as it's foundation. We are working to establish as strong an economic foundation as possible to make sure that we build a corporate model with a strong network of funding sources, investors and banking partners along with quality financial management, legal and accounting teams on board. We're raising our own money as well as identifying rock solid "Equity Partners" who understand and believe in our vision. We have put this "Economic Development Incubator" together to address first things first and that is to raise  funds for our land development plans, business ventures and job creation machines. We can then train and hire a very large workforce that we now seek to help put back to work.
