August 2017 Colorado Springs Entrepreneurs Group Meetup

Written by  Mike Schmidt

 CSE Group Members:

Ok, this month's Meetup Theme will be focused on a topic that many of us think about on a daily basis... Personal Finance.  Specifically we are going to have 3 engaging speakers this month that will address two topics of interest... Creative Investing, and Leveraging Insurance.  Will also have an Open Mic Night to allow some of our members to provide some updates on projects they are working on or topics of interest to them.  And we will welcome some of our new members this month.

Creative Investing:

CKFMetals:  Matt Mullane and Daniel Glanville

In our first Entrepreneurial segment, both Daniel Glanville and Matt Mullane, (who are officers with CKFMetals) will be presenting an overview on "Creative Investing".

CKFMetals is a leader in Precious Metals Acquisition, Transport and Storage. They are offering a Private Placement that is uniquely designed so that investors of all types and levels can participate. It is a 12% fixed-interest rate on a 1 year  renewable Senior Secured Note. CKMetals is also offering the ability to participate in a direct shipment of the gold they have secured all over the globe. As an investor, you will have your choice of sharing in the profits generated from the transaction or take possession of the gold at a significant discount.

Matt and Daniel also run a consulting firm that helps bring investors and entrepreneurs together. With over 30 years of experience in the financial sectors and many contacts in that world they are uniquely qualified to make things happen. They can operate as consultants and help bring businesses from seed to start, help refine your pitch and message for investors, help secure funding, and everything in between. Currently they work with CKFMetals, a gold mine in Fairplay CO, two cannabis/technology offerings, a low-flow toilet prototype, and a veteran's sanctuary. If you would like a consult or to hear about any of these opportunities please speak with them at the meetup.
