Justin's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped us to hire more developers as well as be able to put equipment in our future initiative tech community centers.

Justin's story

Growing up as an only child I had a very interesting childhood. I didn’t have the perfect parents, but throughout my life both of my parents have always worked two jobs to make sure we had a roof over our head and food on the table. Times were tough growing up and our household may have been considered somewhat dysfunctional. However, I think this is what lead to the resilience and mental toughness that I’ve grown to have. Both of my parents have utilized entrepreneurship just to make ends meet, and the entrepreneurial blood was already flowing while helping my father sell pastries or clothes from the trunk of his car at work. I always liked electronic games and spent all my spare time as a youth learning about how they work, as well as for entertainment, especially while outdoors in the field with my parents. As a teenager I worked my way to being the shift manager at KFC and learned about managing people and a business. That’s where I came up with the concept for creating a gaming and innovation development company. I have already partially developed Interactive First Person Shooter (IFPS), a safe and fun laser tag game that works indoors or outdoors. I have also personally invested in creating gaming apps that are finalizing beta stage and ready for market. I have introduced my concepts and built partially functional prototypes by piecing together engineering, app coding, and design resources. I have knocked on doors and pitched my concept to numerous prominent venture capital investors and gaming companies who love my products and find them to be potential “game-changers.” My gaming apps and my laser-tag hardware game is designed to go to market and generate revenue from day one.
