In a nutshell...

  • Kerabu is a work in progress. So far there's a business plan, a blog and a draft of a book--all of which are about promoting a form of radical entrepreneurialism that is lucid, ecstatic and even sensual. (None too subtle, but that's why the blog is pretty and floaty--too many business blogs are IBM blue). My name is Hillary Johnson, and I'm the author of some books and a contributor to some other blogs (below), and sometimes write about business, entrepreneurialism and innovation for magazines like Inc.

I am looking for a venture capitalist to start sending quality goods to Africa. The african folk are ready to pay for goods we take for granted in the west.

After several visits to Africa, I have realized that the hottest goods are the parts of American cars. The Africans are buying lots of trucks due to bad roads but the parts are being sold for ridiculous amounts. A average part like a mere light bulb in the USA which might cost less than $ 50 will sell for twice the cost.

Thus if one can arrange and obtain access into the parts dealers here in USA with good prices to shop quickly back into africa, the sky will be the limit because the ROI will be huge.

I need any venture capitalist to contact me and lets get this going for big profits.

Other areas are building marterials we typically see at the Home depots etc. These are moving very very fast.

Hi there let me explain my situation from the beginning and hopefully someone can help.My names Ben i live in the UK I've just terned 22 I've recently left the armed forces after completing four years. I've completed two back to back tours of Iraq on the front line.I'm now in the middle of setting up my own charity raising funds for injured troops my charity will also be involved in housing lads and helping them financially when they leave the forces. I'm extremely passionate about my charity and theres no way my charity is going to fail i received a call of one of my close friends a few weeks ago to tell me that one of our lads had took his own life. I think society believe if you haven't been physically injured then your okay this really is not the case mental illnesses are just as bad if not worse.Anyway I've tried approaching loan firms but because i haven't got a credit score they wont give me the time of day. I've also made the mistake of paying fees to con men on the Internet anyway I've got a great team in place but i need an investor or private loan lender to lend us the sum of £20 000 to be fully operational this will enable us to become registered as well as buying are charity merchandise and paying solicitor fees.All funds will be paid back no later then 6 months of us receiving it with interest.If you feel you know anyone who may be able to help please contact me asap thanks and take care.

OLIVE is a sole proprietorship in Cameroon. We are starting up timber logging and sales of sawn wood business within the national territory. There is a large market for sawn planks within the national territory and Neighbouring towns such as Fontem, Dschang, Bafoussam and Bamenda.
We are currently seeking to expand our production and revenue generation, through the acquisition of a Mobile Sawmill. This will boost up our production to over 200 planks a day and sales of at least 20000 planks per month. Averagely, each tropical plank “1 by 12 inch” cost 4000 at the local market. Thus, this will generate a minimum revenue of 20000 X 4000FCFA per month = 80000000FCFA (150000 USD) PER Month.
We currently in need of a mobile sawmill machine. We are seeking for believers to invest in this venture or provide us a loan/grant. We will prefer investment in kind or Equipment, not Cash. Investor will own 30% of the companies stake for five years. Investors will be paid a minimum of 90,000,000 FCFA (169,399 USD) per year for five years
