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

A loan helped get the initial inventory to launch my patented e-commerce product.

Gregory's story

I am currently the sole owner and patent-pending holder of the product Lively Susan. I grew up in Baltimore City and I began my work career at a very early age. I have had the good fortune to have been employed by multiple Fortune 500 companies which taught me a lot. I was also fortunate enough to go back to school at a mature age and obtain a BS degree in Biology/Allied Health. As an employee for some of the biggest companies in the world, I had the knack for inventing things and processes that saved these companies untold revenue and incomes. I noticed, in many cases, if I could understand a problem and had the necessary resources, I could produce a better result! The idea of the Lively Susan came to me when I was trying to make a process better. Over the years I have updated and modified the original design. The concept was further validated after the University of Maryland School of Law agreed to help me obtain the patents and trademarks. This launch gives me the platform to share and develop what I think is a needed product that could have a significant impact on the environment. Additionally, with the right launch and development, it will give me the opportunity to provide jobs and resources for the Baltimore community. My hope is that the Lively Susan will be the foundation of many more environmentally friendly concepts to offer to consumers.
