About Us

Paul Wright, Founder

Paul Wright leads a team who is passionate about helping entrepreneurs. He started his first business 18 years ago, and since then, he's worked in various capacities with hundreds of small business owners, learning a gold mine of lessons along the way.

Paul has served in many community economic development financing roles with both private and public "impact investors" having helped deploy over $20 million into projects in his career.

"My strengths are to help entrepreneurs launch and grow new enterprises. And my biggest passion is to help enterprises that create a greater good in our world. Social innovators sometimes need blueprints that are a little different than what a typical business might follow. This is where my unique expertise lies.
