Startup Business Directory

I was gainfully employed up until Covid, but have always had the entrepreneurial spirit with many side hobby projects that have provided some side income for the past few years. When I was let go from my employer, I jumped right into establishing my own company, Nationwide Automation LLC . Using my 15+ years in business sales and leadership, along with my personal experience in digital media, it felt like the perfect fit. A blessing in disguise perhaps.

In order to scale my business, I need capital to fund a large project that will help small businesses in the Chicagoland area to start, then eventually nationwide. Providing an open web portal for both mom & pops and consumers that need jobs completed, at an economical price. Think of Facebook meets Fiverr.

I currently provide digital marketing services for small businesses trying to scale and grow, but this new platform I am having built will be at a whole different level. I am looking to connect local service providers, mostly small businesses, with consumers looking for services. I am already 2 weeks into the build, but require additional funds to complete it and bring the vision to full fruition. 

There are web developer costs, legal counseling costs, as well as paid services that I simply cannot afford to pay on my own at this time. I am thankful for any and all donations to help fund this exciting project. Be part of something great!

If you would like to know the full details for a larger fund donation, please contact me  directly for a Non-Disclosure Agreement.

Thank you!
