eNewsChannels: Cash for Equity

ORLANDO, Fla. /eNewsChannels/ — NEWS: CashNLearn, Orlando’s Own “Shark Tank”-like show is calling all local entrepreneurs to its launch kick off on May 15 at the Artegon Marketplace in Orlando, Fla. Registration is now open.

If you ask Kissimmee’s Judith Ann Mitchell, MBA CFP(R), the producer of CNL what gets her motivated; it is simple: “Helping small, startup businesses get off the ground.” The successful CFP has run several businesses here in Central Florida for the past 15 years.

After watching the famed “Shark Tank” show, she asked herself: “Can this format work for the small local startup here in our own community?”

She collaborated with a local film director, Marty Jean Louis and studio, Legend Media Productions, to start the project. Her commitment is to help the backbone of all communities; the local entrepreneurial spirit of the lawn caretakers, pool caretakers, house cleaners, car detailers, realtors, dry cleaners, plumbers, electricians, etc. These businesses cannot be done overseas but only in our own backyards. They are the backbone of our communities. They live here, pay taxes here, spend their money here, raise their families here and hire people from here.

So CashNLearn was born! The goal is to offer entrepreneurs the chance to raise cash to start up their companies through three avenues:

Investing Gurus: The panelists on the CashNLearn Show are Local Central Florida equity investors. The entrepreneurs will present their business ideas to these Investing Gurus on the show in hopes of being funded for a percentage of their business at $5,000 to $50,000 levels.

The Angel Program: It is an angel investing, discount membership program. Membership fees collected from subscribers are used to invest in local entrepreneurs who in return give deep discounts on their products and services to the subscribers. Central Florida’s established businesses will also be part of the Angel Program as a $30 a month CNL Angel PROVIDER they will also share in the system’s discounts. Whenever a new company or business signs up as a CNL Angel Provider, all the Angels in the program will be notified via Twitter, Facebook, Text Message or Email allowing them to get that ANGEL PROVIDERS discounts immediately.

CNL Crowdfunding: This is a gift reward level program to help startups get funding. For each of the entrepreneurs elected to be on the show will be on the CNL Crowdfunding site for free. Gift level programs will be at the $5 to $50 levels. These will be items such as t-shirts, coffee mugs, calendars, etc. The entrepreneurs will also be able to offer their product at a huge discount for pledges.

CNL will also provide critical guidance, education and a strong support community of mentors and advisors. The mentoring program will initially assist with consultations to direct and guide each entrepreneur to begin and or expand the enterprise on sound footing to help eliminate many beginning missteps.

Each mentor will offer initial consultation free of charge with all CNL’s elected entrepreneurs to guide them towards success.

Do you have a great idea but do not know where to begin? CashNLearn can help you.

The Launch Party is set for May 15, 2015 at the Artegon Marketplace. It is dedicated to helping local artisans, entrepreneurs and small business owners succeed through its unique venue. It is a perfect match for CashNLearn as it shares the same dedication for the small business owner.
