From Ofo Ezeugwu:
I’m reaching out because I’m leaning on my community on this one.
I wanted to let you know, we’re launching a SeedInvest campaign on Sep 25 and have aligned a bunch of press and influencers to help us get the word out. This means, thanks to Obama and the JOBS Act, we’ll be able to raise investment capital from any and everyone. The only caveat is our minimum investment amount is $500.
In this game, you have to scrap for everything you eat. With that being the case, we’ve made a ton of progress and would like to invite our friends, our peers, our users, and our supporters to join in on what’s to come next. Thanks to Obama and the work he’s done with the JOBS Act, now every and anyone can invest in companies – not just people making $200k/yr and/or having assets worth $1M+. So, with that being said, we’re presented with the unique opportunity to lean on our community and encourage them to assist us in building something that will empower, embolden, and inform their communities. If you’re a believer in what we’re building, or even if you’ve just felt inspired by our journey so far, I’d encourage you to invest in @WYLandlord by visiting www.seedinvest.com/whoseyourlandlord
