Welcome to SmallStart Ventures Inc. Your one-stop business launchpad providing the necessary capital and resources to help businesses launch, grow and thrive. 

We know that many men and women have developed superior skills within their chosen fields. However, they may have reached a point in their careers wherein they're no longer satisfied and now want to take control of their destinies. Moreover, there are people who may have been out of the workforce due to family responsibilities (i.e., mothers and fathers) or perhaps even incarcerated for several years. These people may have the skills and entrepreneurial drive that can be applied toward creating a business, but they don't have the necessary resources to make those businesses successful.

Our resources and services are crucial because over 20% of businesses fail after the first year, 50% after five years, and over 67% by the tenth year. The key reasons for these business failures include not satisfying market needs, not having sufficient capital, and lacking administrative, marketing, strategic, and personnel resources. 

Our Mission:

To identify enthusiastic and capable prospects from a diversity of backgrounds, empower them with the tools,

inspiration, and leadership necessary to launch and grow their businesses to levels of success that far exceed national averages.

SmallStart Ventures Inc. provides the capital, resources and know-how to help businesses get off the ground from a strategic perspective, rather than from an uninformed and emotional perspective. With our expansive network of industry-based consultants and success coaches at their side, selected entrepreneurs can focus their energy on learning and growing their business without the constant fear of failure. 

We have the solutions that will help your business succeed and thrive. Please peruse our website to learn more about our services and business model. Then if you believe that you have what it takes, Contact Us to schedule a Free Strategic Consultation.  We are looking forward to hearing from you soon.
