I make no promises that if your business is profitable, that I will invest more money. If you do get money, it goes into a bank that I specify, and I have the ability to watch the funds flow and the opportunity to require that I cosign any outflows.

No minimum, no maximum, but a very specific set of rules.

I wanted it to have a very relaxed comfortable feel to it.
The Guerrilla marketing tactics below are your means to this end. Give a Graffiti artist some free drawing space by letting him use his artistry on your shutters or paint a mural on the side of your Building e.g Homeless Charity Simon Community building.
