  1. WANTED: a "angel investor" for the hospitality sector

    I'm trying 2 find investor to starting small $300,000 business in hospitality to cater for 10 per class or $3m for bigger, better and have much more available to service the sector. Have planned a 40wk program for industry with 167 compulsory through local tech, general education and kids camps during term break.
    The bigger could bring people from over seas as they to have the same problems with the standard at general schools, so would like to have living quarters available for students and each year bring in new students to assist the general education of the pre-school for those to qualify for the industry.
    My students are already wanted for next year and in future, also in the industry for staffing issues straight away, so the students will be easier to train in apprenticeships with basic knowledge and my project will fit in between general school and tech courses/apprenticeships.
    Have 2 properties in mind on the market “for sale” and have sourced all products required for the project from buildings (that will need touch-ups) through to cooking equipment, and all other requirements. Both projects will need to employ other staff.
    Any interest contact Sue at:

  2. Thanks for your sales pitch anon but if you want to advertise on this site in the future please contact me first.
