The Company History & Insight Behind
The Impact-Driven Business Model
Integrated Impact Driven Ventures Inc (Integrated Ventures), is a privately-held, for-profit Nevada corporation formed in late 2015 by the AngelPreneur Venture Group (APVG) . We were formerly known as Plastic2Power USA, but changed our name to reflect a more refined and integrated business model. The above video features APVG Founder/CEO who shares the mission behind Integrated Ventures.
APVG is a privately held venture
development firm founded by Peter
"The AngelPreneur" Ortmann, aka:
The Shark. His unique self-funded
business management approach and
creative strategies, incorporate many
of the principals outlined in the video
Infinite Game - Mindset To Business
in the 21st Century - as presented on

building a viable business brand.
The Shark, APVG and his partners have collectively invested over USD $2.4 million over the years into the development of the various business models outlined on this website. The journey here has been under construction a long time, as we made changes to reflect current global economic conditions, new designs, structures and process changes. One such change is explained below:
When we first formed Plastic2Power (now Integrated Ventures), we focused on building a plastic waste collection network and converting this waste into oil (the origin of plastic). We intended to use a process line built in China, which generated 1 gallon of oil for every 10 pounds of waste waste collected. However, as oil prices dropped from near $100 to under $20 a barrel over the years, it delayed the process.
In the "America First" and "Built in the USA" culture, we once again did what entrepreneurs do - we adopted a new approach to streamline our objectives further. Although our Plastic2Power plastic waste to energy model remains our core business, today it converts waste to syngas to fuel electric turbine
generators without the need to create plastic oil, making for an even more eco-friendly model.
By designing our processing system away from oil, we no longer need to depend on China to build our equipment, a major advantage. By acquiring waste directly from local recycling companies, we no longer need to build a collection network, a huge initial and ongoing cost savings. All in all, these changes will streamline the Plastic2Power business and save millions over the years in the process.
Despite the many delays in getting to the launch pad, these delays proved to benefit us in many ways. It made us rethink our strategies, our structures, to redesign our processes and repurpose our integrated objectives. Along the way we developed new business models like AirWater and PlugHUBS. Today,
Integrated Ventures is positioned to excel forward.
Beginning in late 2020 Integrated Ventures will be featured in The AngelPreneur podcast series, as part of an entertainment marketing strategy, both hosted by The Shark. The podcasts will set out to share the Integrated Ventures business building experiences, present day challenges and ongoing developments, while addressing APVG's non-profit CBO Foundation ocean-related issues, such as plastic waste, need to reduce overfishing and shark finning practices.
