Why, in particular, are your interested in crowdfunding?

As stated at length below, we are a Colorado company that specializes in helping very small Colorado businesses get started and not fail. Many small businesses have a great concept or business plan but they fail because they are not experienced or have the expertise to handle all of the other aspects of being an employer and running a business. We believe in small business as a jobs generator for the future of Colorado and we want to help make sure that these investments are successful and not failures.

Are you looking for money or for an investment, or are you just curious?

We are not looking for any investment money. We are interested in making sure that small start-ups are successful and that investment money is not wasted. Many small companies and entrepreneurs have a great idea or business plan but they have no idea that they will be running two businesses, the core business that they originally envisioned, and secondly the business of being an employer. The second business if not handled with expertise can ruin the first one. We are professionals that help small businesses with all Human Resource, Payroll and Tax issues, and benefits such as affordable Health and Dental insurance, 401K plans etc. We also handle all Risk and Workers Compensation issues. Many firms in our industry will not help companies with less than 10 or 15 employees. We are based in the Denver Tech Center and we will help companies as small as just two entrepreneurs just starting out. Our goal is to help and insure the success of companies once they have their funding.

How familiar are you with the subject of crowdfunding in general? Have you been the beneficiary of a crowdfunding effort in the past?

We are somewhat familiar with crowdfunding but we have not used it to start our business.

Introduction

My name is Jack Hanchette and I am an owner of Premier Employer Services, Inc. We are a Denver based Professional Employer Organization that specializes in helping start-up companies. We help companies as small as 2 entrepreneurs with all HR needs.

What Jack H. is saying about this Meetup Group

I think it has tremendous potential. As we discussed in our meeting, a lot will depend on what kind of rules and guidelines the SEC finally issues.
