Using Virtual Communities To Raise Venture Capitalism Investment in Delta County Michigan

Delta County Michigan has a lot of underutilized potential and when we engage in pro-business strategies we can draw in more investment and in turn provide more jobs to our children so they don't have to move somewhere else. While I don't believe in hard and fast rules I can say that I like to look at some of the research literature in the formation of a more formal opinion to incorporate into a theory I'm working on to increase innovative growth. Investment in existing and start-up businesses is hugely important and having an online community for Delta County Investments may be one idea that works.  Investors, entrepreneurs, and venture capitalists rely on information. Building and designing websites that seek highlight local businesses looking for investment capital because of their growth potential is a viable strategy. The other method may be to create investment online forums where this information is not only present but investors, entrepreneurs, venture capital

Coronovirus Task Force Provides Update April 18th, 2020

There is a good point the President made as it relates to the PPP program and its potential benefits to the country. Refunding the PPP (and other) can be helpful for creating greater innovation down the road for large (large businesses often integrate successful smaller businesses) and small businesses (can grow and develop on their own) alike. One issue our nation has faced is concentration of wealth in fewer hands. Allowing for a method of encouraging smaller businesses to start and sustain operations can have multi-fold benefits such as greater economic shock absorbing, improved return to investors, re-connecting rural economies that were sidelined by globalization, zoning for future disease waves to minimize economic impact, rebranding American values to a large/poweful group of Millennials, and encouraging localized grassroots economic systems that support family incomes.

Delta County Airport Receives $1 Million+ (Sawyer International $18 Million +) from CARES

Congressman Bergman from the 1st Congressional District announces that a number of local airports will be receiving monies through the  CoronavirusAid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act  that provide $10 billion to support U.S. airports experiencing severe economic disruption caused by the COVID-19 public health emergency.

Delta county is ripe for international investment and manufacturing. It is a county that has underperformed the market but has much of the needed infrastructure and "Yooper Strong" working population that could really make things happen.

Attracting SME Adventure-Venture Capitalism to Delta County (Escanaba & Gladstone) Through Neuroeconomics

Delta County and Escanaba/Gladstone are relatively small towns nestled on the coast of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Covid-19 will eventually work its way out of the danger zone and many local businesses will be looking for ways to rejuvenate the local economy. Some may not open again so we will need new strategies to bring back jobs and further prosperity in a way that hedges the best local assets. We can continue our current slow decades long decline or we can master the Digital Economy and our natural strengths to create something new and more sustainable. That will require courage of local business owners, governments, and stakeholders. Instead of shying away from the modern world lets jump two feet forward and find a strategy that will allow our children and grand children live the lives we always intended them to.  Innovation occurs through sharing ideas so feel free to share this article with those who might have interest.
