The Company History & Insight Behind
The Impact-Driven Business Model
Integrated Ventures is a privately-held, for-profit Nevada corporation formed in late 2015. We were formerly known as Plastic2Power USA, but recently changed our name to reflect our more integrated business model objectives.
Integrated Ventures was Founded by Peter "AngelPreneur" Ortmann,
aka: Petey orThe Shark (in the logo), an Angel Investor and serial
entrePreneur - hence the AngelPreneur Tag. Mr. Ortmann is a
visionary inspired by Apple co-founder Steve Jobs' - "Never Quit" attitude.
Petey's privately held AngelPreneur
Venture Group Inc. (APVG), a privately
held asset management family office
and venture development firm is our parent and principal shareholder. His
unique business management
approach and creative strategies
incorporate some of the business
principals outlined in the Infinite
Game - Mindset To Business
in the 21st Century - as presented by
Simon Sinek in this video.
Petey, 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.
Now 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. Integrated Ventures is now positioned to excel forward.
Beginning in late 2020 Integrated Ventures will be featured in The AngelPreneur: Building The Dream In Real Time - web series (Series). The Series will become part of an entertainment marketing strategy that was developed by and is hosted by our founder. The Series will set out to share the Integrated Ventures business building experiences, present day challenges and ongoing developments, while addressing the CBO Foundation ocean-related issues, such as plastic waste, overfishing and others.
Integrated Ventures is currently in the process of establishing a multi-year staged credit facility for USD $250 million in working capital to establish its initial operations, corporate offices, hire key managers, build it manufacturing site and fund its two year growth plan.
Structured as a non-equity-based credit line or financing facility, it will incorporate a number of venture capital groups, bankers, hedge funds and other private family offices. This is in addition to our pursuing local, state and federal job development and innovation grants.
