Northeast Ohio Startups

/PRNewswire/ -- Tech-based startups that receive early support from mentors, advisors and investors are showing themselves to be significant contributors to Northeast Ohio's economy, even early in their growth. In 2011, 121 young companies that benefited from business assistance and sometimes seed capital from JumpStart Inc. collectively generated more than $220 million in economic benefits for the region, according to an annual report from The Center for Economic Development at Cleveland State University's Levin College of Urban Affairs.  The 121 innovative businesses included in the report collectively increased Ohio state and local tax revenues by $12.3 million in 2011, more than covering the cost of both the technical assistance provided and the seed capital invested by JumpStart.
"Thanks to the commitment of public, private and philanthropic partners, organizations like JumpStart are able to provide free or low-cost resources to entrepreneurs that have the potential to go on to create wealth and opportunities for their communities," said entrepreneur and JumpStart Board Chair Doug Weintraub. "Now we're seeing some of the young companies we and our partners in the region were able to help at pivotal points in their development -- companies like digital marketer Knotice, regenerative therapies developer Juventas Therapeutics or water remediator ABSMaterials -- really start to take off and produce returns on the region's investment by attracting additional risk capital, generating revenues, paying taxes and creating new jobs."
Companies analyzed in the report helped create and retain 776 in-region direct jobs, with a total Northeast Ohio employment impact of more than 1,600 total jobs in 2011. "These largely IT, cleantech and healthcare companies need skilled talent, so the positions they create are generally very good-paying ones, in this case averaging a yearly salary of around $65,000," says Weintraub. Every new job created by these companies and their suppliers also generated new earnings for local households, increasing total household earnings in Greater Cleveland by $89 million in 2011.
JumpStart expects the impact some of these innovators have on the region's economy will increase as the companies continue to grow. Sixty-three companies included in this 2011 impact analysis also were surveyed in 2010. In one year, those companies increased their aggregated Northeast Ohio employment by 111, payroll by $8.7 million and expenditures by $20.6 million.
Data for the economic impact study was collected via a survey of a sampling of companies that received support to speed their growth from Cleveland-based nonprofit venture development organization JumpStart and/or the associated North Coast Angel Fund. The CSU report does not include the economic impact of all startups in the 21 counties of Northeast Ohio or even all of the companies to which JumpStart provides assistance, just those who responded to the survey, reported some Ohio employment, payroll or expenditures in 2011, and certified their responses. Weintraub adds, "This is a positive indication of the transformative role JumpStart, our partners and others tech-based economic development resources can continue to play in our region's economic transformation."

Do you have a chance in real estate

Having a chance in real estate investing is really a great question. I was talking to an assistant from a large guru in real estate this week and he was trying to figure out a way to create an application so investors could press a button and presto instant access to real estate people who know investments.

Like lawyers there is good real estate investment advisors and bad ones and most of them are in the bag category. This gentleman basically was make an application for real estate leads to investors. I explained to him there is much more than being a licensed real estate agent to investing, and he started asking any questions about how me leads how many leads that convert etc. etc. Which I ended the conversation and went on with my busy day.

Investment real estate is not about the number of leads you get or how many people you can stack in a room to sell your product of how to's in real estate. It's about a system that helps ensure that the investor will have a successful and profitable real estate investment property.

When you're looking at investing in real estate and you want to have a chance the basic need is to buy a lot properties people can take care of you because they do not want to loos a large chunk of business. The basis of this basic need would be fear of losing your business. That's why set up rooftopinvestment is to take care of the basic need my clients are all with one construction company, property management company, maintenance company and a real estate company. This means that if one person is not happy with any of these companies services I simply change companies. That seems like a small thing until you explain how many homes we have that is over 160.

Property management alone that is over $90,000 per month in gross rents, so you can see that is a rather large number and revenue. This means that no matter if you buy one property or 13 properties(I have one client that has purchased that many) that you will be treated like you purchased 160 properties.
There are so many ways to make money in this business that the key ingredient in my opinion is to get with the right personnel and company to make sure your success in real estate is done.

So the good news is yes you have a great chance in real estate if you get with the right company. Buying CD courses and doing weekend but boot camps will get you some knowledge but if you want to make money than get with a company that has a proven track record in investment real estate.

To wrap this blog post up I want also point out that Ohio had the second best drop in unemployment right behind California. There are a lot of people coming to the Cleveland area and that means they need to live somewhere. So don't wait till it's too late,  sales have doubled this year and the end may be near for the spectacular deals. Brett young Valley Realty

Story from USA TODAY
The Labor Department said that unemployment rates fell in only 14 states. That's fewer than the previous month, when rates fell in 37 states. Rates were unchanged in 18 states.
Nationally, the rate rose to 8.2% in May from 8.1% in April, the first increase in almost a year. Employers added only 69,000 jobs, the fewest in 12 months.
Still, 27 states added jobs in May. California gained the most, adding 33,900. Ohio was next with 19,600
