For over a dozen years, Brion Crum has been advising early stage, high growth potential companies involved in manufacturing, software, IT, clean tech, nanotechnology, biotechnology, renewable energy and non-profit endeavors.
One of these high growth companies is Caliber: The Wealth Development Company. Brion is the Director of Strategic Relationships where his primarily role is to drive revenue and profitability to all business units and increase shareholder value for their investors. Caliber supports the local business community by hosting Caliber Summit events that provide speakers on topics of interest to business owners, entrepreneurs and investors. We also have a crowd-funding portal that will be used to raise capital for Arizona businesses and projects.
Caliber’s flagship investment vehicle has produced a 28.3% gain to our clients in 2013 and 19% gain in 2014. Through diligent acquisitions and superior management we are targeting a 20%+ internal rate of return in this investment and similar in others. Caliber is developing and strengthening relationships with our clients, strategic partners, investors, economic developers, community based organizations and non-profits. We will be launching an equity crowd-funding portal, www.venturelocalist.com in Q3 2015 which will allow greater access to a portfolio of income producing real estate to main street investors so they can invest locally.
