NEW PROGRAMS for 2022 -2023

The Ritz Group will Sponsor a virtual Trade Show for our Entrepreneur Ecosystem called the Capital Expo

The Ritz Group is a Pioneer in Georgia's entrepreneur ecosystem with our  first  meetings at the Ritz Carleton over 35 years ago.   The Entrepreneur ecosystem has grown exponentially from Atlanta,  to metro Atlanta and now statewide.   

Georgia's number ONE  need, Post-Covid,  is to digitally re-connect our ecosystem. 

The Ritz Group is pleased to support that GOAL by creating a modern Virtual forum to Spotlight our Ecosystem leaders and supporters,  plus introduce the NEW Entrepreneurs and resources Statewide. 

We are  pleased to be part of the TEAM to help make Capital Expo happen first Quarter 2023

The Ritz Group will Launch three programs for Veterans 

Veterans Match Market

Prior to Covid, the Ritz Group was the first to hold a Veterans Shark Attack "Pitch Event" each November to celebrate Veterans Day.   The Event was a unique Shark Attack because the three Sharks and the four pitching companies were all Veterans.   

Our mission on November 10, 2022 is to conduct our first Post Covid  "Live" Veterans Shark Attack.   

In 2023 the Ritz Group will Sponsor the launch a Veterans Match Market to connect the world-wide Veteran Ecosystem.   The Mission is to use sophisticated Match Engine Technology to connect Veterans to Veterans,  Veterans to Corporations offering discounts and jobs to Veterans, plus Organizations offering resources to veterans. 

The Launch of the Georgia Capital Expo in 2023 will also feature a Veterans Pavilion to Showcase Georgia's commitment to Veteran Entrepreneurs.   The Exhibitors will all be Veterans and the Pavilion Sponsors will fund Veteran non-profits in Georgia.

The Ritz Group will Premier a Cryptocurrency Token backed Fund to improve Investor Liquidity 

Slide2

In 2023, the Ritz Group will launch a Cryptocurrency Fungible Token called the RZE to SOLVE two major Funding GAPs in Georgia.   One for Investors and the second for Entrepreneurs 

 The first is providing small cap private equity Investors with improved Liquidity to realize capital Gains, or reduce losses, earlier than today's traditional 7 to 15 year Exit waiting period.   

The second is using the Ritz Group's presence and technology in Georgia's Entrepreneur Ecosystem to screen, select and build a portfolio of early stage and seed round companies that are the "Best of Georgia".      These sources will include the Ritz Group Shark Attack Winners, TIE Angels,  ATDC, ATA, Venture Atlanta selected companies and more.    

Finally, RZE will have a Pavilion on the Capital Expo to showcase the RZE investment Pool of Companies.   The Capital Expo point-of-presence will also provide an additional venue for RZE Pool Companies to meet investors and solicit additional funding rounds.

The Ritz Group will launch Shark Attack TV to syndicate Shark Attack Pitch Events 

Shark Attack TV Logo

In 2023, the Ritz Group will launch  Shark Attack TV  (SATV), a media content play to leverage Shark Attack that premiered in 2013.   The Goal is to use online Digital Shark Attack to screen Shark Attack TV Winners and also curate that media into Pitch Training.   Monthly Shark Attacks will be conducted in a TV Studio with a "Live" audience  and edited to syndicate in today's popular media distribution channels.  

Our Focus is NOT to replicate today's popular Shark Tank, but to provide a professional venue featuring local Entrepreneurs and Sharks with real-world early stage ventures in technology and specialized industries or diversity themes.     Examples of Show Themes would be veterans, NFT's, diversity, education, franchises, plus health and wellness.     

Shark Attack TV will also have a Pavilion on Capital Expo.    The Pavilion will have its own Lobby, Aisles, Auditorium and Exhibitors representing both the SATV companies,  but Aisles for the Digital Shark Attack Companies.   The goal is simple - provide more fund raising visibility for SATV Companies.
