According to a Gallup Poll, if given a choice, over 60% of employed Americans would start their own business, rather than work for someone else. According to the same poll, over 70% of young Americans (18 to 29-year-olds) would rather work for themselves, 70% of women would, also, work for themselves, and 40% of Americans, over the age of 60, would do the same. If you are among these demographics, you are in the right place at the right time. Now is the time to get your project off the ground.
Hello, I am Jonathan Reyes, CEO, and co-founder of GETGO Funding Inc. For the last eighteen years, I’ve had the pleasure of working as a community outreach contractor in Southern California. During this time, I have had the opportunity of making a difference in the community by helping nearly twenty thousand low-income families remain comfortably cool in the hot summer months and comfortably warm during the winter. I’ve also helped them bring down their utility bills through energy education. Reducing the human carbon footprint on our planet and saving money is a win-win for everybody.
At the same time, I have also listened to at least a thousand stories that would make your heart break- unrelenting hardship, unfulfilled wishes and dreams, with some families’ tales of the occasional moment of joy, or a parent’s desire to educate their kids to get out of poverty. The struggle is all too real, but the fight goes on.
I wanted to do more to help people out; something more on a grand scale. Although the work I do, even to this day, is deeply appreciated by the community, I wanted to figure out a way to take it to the next level. Then, one day, while talking to someone about their bad crowdfunding experience, with a film project I had worked on, it just hit me. The idea was to create a crowdfunding platform where just about anyone could accomplish their goals, without having a large social media following, and with less effort.
This was about the time I met my co-founder, and President of GETGO Funding, Luis Garcia. Luis is a long-time marketing high-earner, and a great leader. He quickly envisioned the idea as something most people can do and didn’t hesitate at the chance to partner up with me.
For my part, I didn’t have all the money to start a new company, especially one on a grand scale. Understandably, there is always an option, or different way to get things done, but without my part of the investment capital, it would never have become a reality. For a short moment, it felt like it would never happen. That was until my twenty-year-old son suggested I drive Lyft and Uber, at night to start building my dream. Well, that’s exactly what happened. It took me over 18 months, and more than five thousand rides to put the seed money together. I gave thousands of rides to Angelinos, and conversed with most of them, as well as people from all over the world.
Driving Uber and Lyft to finance this project was my stepping stone. It was difficult, but every night while driving, my passengers shared their thoughts, ideas, and passion in their struggle to do something great. This motivated me to keep driving night after night. But, very much like the families I reach out to, most of my passengers didn’t have the money needed to make their dreams a reality. This assured me that GETGO FUNDING would be used by thousands of people all around the world to accomplish their goals.
My journey to accomplishing this goal was difficult, but yours doesn’t have to be. We’ve designed a way to make it easier for you to accomplish your goals. With this said, I hope you can see the potential impact a small donation can make in your life as well as the life of the person that asked for your support.
