Have Your Company Post Scanned Online And Boost Recycling By 500%
On March 6th the first episode of the real life soap StartupJunkies will air in which the protagonists are real entrepreneurs pioneering online delivery of postal mail. The show, shot by hi-def channel Mojo.com, follows Ron Wiener who set up Earthclass Mail on his trail to lure venture capital.
The business pitch is compelling; companies and private persons can reduce their carbon footprint and boost their productivity by having Earthclass Mail scan their mail and put it online. Just like email! This way you can eliminate unwanted mail before it arrives on your desk and clutters up the spare office space.
Wiener’s aim is to achieve a business presence in over 20 U.S. cities and the reality soap is a big part of this effort. In the first episode Wiener is filmed traveling to Seattle’s K4 global network, a fast growing international business angel investor group to secure major cash injection into his business. A group of over 500 investors will examine the opportunity, go through the prospectus and ask some highly critical questions before deciding if Earthclass Mail will receive any investment. “The show illustrates the problems faced by entrepreneurs, and explains the growth process they face as they seek funding to grow their new businesses”, Judith Iglehart and Scott Pacult report on Keiretsu (K4)’s blog.
Wiener has been on the road for a while already, having pitched his business before Californian, Colorado and Barcelona investors members of the K4 investment community. The man’s most luring catch phrase no doubt is “See how easily your organization can witness the biggest boost in productivity and cost savings since the introduction of email.”
Wiener has a point. By aggregating the paper stacks of corporations, the recycling effort could take off in earnest. He’s got my blessing; I have signed up for their referral program. Be sure to click on the link here!
