Total loan: $7,500


Madison, WI, United States / Services

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

A loan helped pay my staff, and keep current on licences, business software, and fix equipment.

Charles's story

I am from Racine, Wisconsin originally and relocated to Madison, WI, the State Capitol. This high energy city has the University of WI, lots of arts & culture, and is surrounded by five lakes and the great outdoors. All of this feeds my creativity and passion for my work. I have been an avid athlete and sportsman since childhood and love to explore indoors and out! I own Driven Marketing Solutions and am motivated to help my clients solve their problems by providing high level, integrated marketing solutions through detailed craftsmanship which is cost-effective. One of my proud moments was when I developed the “digital business card” from a text platform that allowed my clients to save money, maximize their CRM's, and apply for green sustainability grants. The two people who influenced me as a person are my mother, who taught me a lot while she was raising three children who all went on to graduate from college. And my dad, who taught me valuable entrepreneur business skills. My business spirit comes from him! This will be my first year in business where I don’t have to purchase new equipment. I also have major projects from national companies. I’m excited about the future and the opportunities to expand my company.
