We are a small technology startup in a part of the country that is still quite depressed economically. Our company is currently solvent with no outstanding obligations however we don't have enough capital to expand and hire employees. We are seeking funding that will help us pay a living wage to one skilled individual for a year. With the help of that person we will be able to gain enough momentum to pay a family wage to at least one more person after six months. There is already high demand for our services and once we have that initial momentum we will be able to create many new family wage technology jobs in the local community.
