We have a plan here at CompuMatter.
Replicating The Store Model
If one does not set their sights on some distant point, how will they ever hope to arrive there?
Animals & Environment
People that know me through my computer store consider me “the computer guy”. However, my sons, my brothers, my nephews, neices, best friends and others know me as the animal guy.
Corrupt Government – Special Interest Lobbyists
The same companies that profit from the bad things I have described above are insuring their own survival by paying lobbyists to wine and dine each governments policy makers. This is a corrupt system that up till now has been unstoppable. Big Oil, Big Agriculture, Big Pharma are the well known ones. Beyond those there are many huge trade organizations that receive payments from every small business in their profit stream to support the lobbying efforts protecting their industry.
Our mission is to become a global company. A company as large or larger than a Starbucks. However unlike Starbucks, Google, Facebook or others, we want to take all profits over and above cost of operations and expansion and direct it to the kinds of things I have spoken about in previous paragraphs.
Financing The Expansion
This is a tricky one. I probably don’t need to tell you that the Facebook, Google’s and Microsoft’s of the world made their billions by going public on the stock market. Frankly, I think we bring the goods right now to go over venture capital if we so chose. However there’s one thing all venture capitalists want and that is to go public. Going public means the big day on the NY Stock Exchange that turns investors into millionaire’s and billionaire’s and then the company itself, CompuMatter, is owned by the millions of people who have invested in it. We are owned by the public but more importantly, their investment is expected to be multiply and returned to them in the form of dividends.
Someone asked me once why all this focus on animals. What about poor people, children, disease and the myriad of human conditions that need help?
