Integrated Ventures is part of the APVG Proposed
Impact Driven Business Development Act
A Self-funded Federal Jobs Creation & CoVid Recovery Program
Our Proposed Program Overview & Structure
The impact of the global CCP Virus Pandemic (CoVid) can not be understated
on any level. It has caused the overnight collapse of many global industries and
economies, countless deaths, both personal and business losses, never mind
the loss of our freedoms. The politicalization of this global tragedy, senseless
rioting, looting and destruction of our cites is beyond pathetic, but fueled in part
by the sudden loss of millions of jobs across all sectors of our economy.
We believe the Trump Administration and federal government reacted immediately to stem the impact of this pandemic by restricting the flow of travel due to offset the spread of CoVid, and are thankful for that. We are also thankful they provided over USD $6 Trillion in financial support to help businesses and people nationwide overcome some of these short-term impacts.
We know that our local state and federal Governments can only do so much, so fast to address sudden impacts caused by CoVid. Although many states still refuse to understand the need to reopen due to political strategies that are driven by the upcoming election. The fact that we now also have a need to fill a Supreme Court seat only distracts us all from the issues at hand.
To help lead in the recovery effort, entrepreneurs everywhere need to get engaged and help restore the lost jobs that fuel our local, state and federal economies. With that goal in mind, APVG, our parent company, and Founder/President/CEO, Peter “TheAngelPreneur” Ortmann (Ortmann), first developed the Impact Driven Entrepreneurs ACT (IDEA Program), a unique, self-funding long-term Federal jobs creation and CoVid recovery program. He soon discovered that an unrelated IDEA Act already existed, so the name was changed to the AngelPreneur Impact Driven Business Development Act (ACT).
The lack of funding new ideas often leads to leaving behind millions of good long-term jobs and many thousands of viable businesses that can create these jobs. This is even more true today in the post CoVid world! Although innovative ideas appeal to Venture Capital (VC) groups and Investment Bankers (Bankers), provided however, they can control the entire process, see huge potential returns and the ideas are focused on a single business objective.
As a rule, VC and Bankers do not like out-of-the-box, well-orchestrated multi-venture business models like represented by APVG's portfolio, including Integrated Ventures and its team of “Visioneurs”. That unfortunate current lack of available funding became the motivation for the genesis behind APVG's proposed ACT program and several other innovative self-funding strategies.
Under the ACT program, the federal government would establish an initial ACT Fund (Fund) with USD $5 billion ($5,000,000,000) or more, to provide non-recourse funding for "impact-driven", socially focused private businesses. They would form a private/public partnership (Partnership) structure, subject to certain conditions, milestone accomplishments and repayment terms.
The proposed Fund would be administered by the U.S. Treasury, SBA, another governmental agency or outsourced entity desired to ensure compliance. Using Integrated Ventures as a real test Partnership
case, we showcase how this Partnership structure will work.
APVG would seek and then receive a Funding Loan Grant (Grant) in the amount of up to $350 million ($350,000,000) to build-out its various business models, including Integrated Ventures, over three years. The Fund advances $70 million (20%) initially, with additional funds up to the full $350 million amount allocated, released under a mutually agreed set of milestones reached over the course of its business development, the number of jobs created and cashflow targets.
Under the terms of the Grant, APVG will have the sole right to use the proceeds provided as they deem necessary to accomplish its stated business objectives and goals. This includes using funds to acquire needed land, fund construction of facilities, purchase equipment or vehicles. As core milestones are met, more funds are provided, increasing the number of jobs, and growing the business asset value.
APVG would not incur any debt-related interest or similar funding costs. Instead, at some point, as we begin to establish an ongoing cashflow and profits (estimated to be within year two of its initial operations). Under the program terms and conditions, APVG agrees to provide twenty percent (20%) of its combined venture pre-tax profit back to the Fund, until the Fund has received all principal and an additional 50% of total funds provided.
In the case of APVG, assuming the full $350 million is provided, $525 million would be returned to the Fund for repurposing. This makes the Fund self-funding long-term, as the original capital plus additional dollars can be recycled back into the economy by funding new impact-driven ventures.
The net effect is that taxpayers will have helped build a long-term jobs creation structure to drive new purpose-driven ventures that can benefit the population collectively at little to no added taxpayer cost. The net effect for Entrepreneurs, who often lack the collateral to borrow the capital needed from Bankers, get the funding they need, or no longer need to give up substantial equity stakes in their projects to obtain VC funding.
Although costly over the term, it is less costly than giving up equity in its early stage venture valuations.
Under this Partnership structure, entrepreneurs retain their business equity ownership and control of building their private businesses, while rewarding employees with profit sharing, increased benefits and compensation values.
The Partnership structure allows APVG management teams to fully drive their business and marketing strategies as the combined vision deems necessary, without the ongoing pressure from a traditional outside profit or bottom-line motivated perspective.
In addition, it allows APVG to take full advantage of cash discounts paid for land and equipment, provides the capital to retain and compensate the experienced talent necessary to build management teams. In light of the devastating impact of CoVid on business and over 40 million job losses - the timing is perfect for this type of program.
By Federal mandate the ACT program would need to create a "Social Value" (SV) proposition accessible to all. Would hire both released and imprisoned inmates whenever possible, and help move the U.S. economy forward, “Making Entrepreneurs Successful Again.”
From a purely political advantage, the ACT program offers any Politician of either party a means to showcase their support of entrepreneurs. For job creation by empowering U.S.-based socially focused, impact-driven or purpose-driven entrepreneurs of tomorrow to help Make America Great Again.
Entrepreneurs need to know their local, state and federal governments value the contribution they make to job creation, and that they are supported by them in this effort. The time to drive this message of “Hope for Entrepreneurs” home has never been more needed or necessary.
The ACT program can become a long-term life support mechanism for motivating millions of innovative entrepreneurs, with projects just waiting for a spark to ignite them. It can clearly show that the Federal government at minimum, values their contribution to the larger U.S. Economy.
Integrated Ventures is one of several APVG “Shovel Ready” ventures to get this program launched and
become the first viable funding candidate. APVG stands ready to help design and build the ACT program as its founding member, with its ventures alone projected to create over 40,000 new jobs within the first 10 years. The only thing standing in the way is access to funding.
In late June we circulated a summary overview of our ACT program to parties in Washington to various sources within and outside of government agencies. The feedback was positive and we sincerely hope the Trump Administration will consider taking a serious look at offering it as one of the many tools needed to rebuild American small businesses and create much needed jobs.
