This loan will help Glenn purchase additional computer monitors to help grow his digital advertisement business.
Despite an unsteady childhood, Glenn grew up with a deep interest in both entrepreneurship and technology. By age 17, he began a small business where he trained others in his community to use computers and designed websites for businesses. After graduating from the University of Georgia with a major in political science, Glenn worked as a project manager for an analytic solutions company for several years. During this time he began crafting the idea for his own business.
In 2012, Glenn began JLAX—Go Local Display, a digital ad network business. Using his savings, Glenn purchased several 23-inch flat screen monitors and small computers to initially launch his business idea. Glenn installs screens in local businesses and throughout town and then rents out advertisement time to companies. Businesses pay Glenn according to the number of advertisements he runs for them each day. Glenn’s business is already proving to be successful and he now has monitors installed in 23 locations throughout Coffee County, GA and over 50 accounts with local businesses.
Now looking to expand his business and attract more clients, Glenn needs a loan to purchase more equipment for future locations. Glenn hopes to soon install screens in 26 new locations among three nearby cities.
