Project Description

Idea Behind the Business: Having all been entrepreneurs themselves and/or growing up around them, each investor understood the hardship that comes when building, and sustaining, a business.  Looking around us, we see giants such as Amazon, Boeing and Microsoft continue to grow in our communities; swallowing up any opportunities for the “young ones”.  Using the TV show ‘Shark Tank’ for inspiration, however scaling it down to focus on business ownership resources, Arxegoz teams up with a startup and helps them build a strong platform through business consulting, financial advisory, marketing support and guidance for manufacturing options so the main business owner can focus on their talent/craft.  Arxegoz is a derivative of the Greek word ‘Archegos’ meaning: to lead; to believe; an author of their own belief; to build.

Our Purpose:  65% of start ups do not make it to year two. Typically you see someone with an amazing idea and talented at their craft BUT they're having a hard time in building the business outside of what they're good at. When this part of business ownership takes over, the main reason of WHY the business started slowly gets missed or forgotten. Building, supporting and succeeding together is the ideal partnerships to take one persons' idea or talent to another level of profit . Providing support to, and believing in, the business itself, is a main focal point for Arxegoz, Inc.  After applying our knowledge and expertise to the needs of the smaller business, we elevate their ability to compete with the bigger businesses.  The market is growing by 15% in entrepreneurs wanting to build on their business ownership; however, we are seeing a high turnover in small businesses not being able to grow.  Our communities are slowly finding themselves wanting to support the local small businesses and as the world continues building on technology, Arxegoz, Inc. leans on building the service-driven businesses to offset the technology industry.

What We Do: We invest. We consult. We advised. We support. and We help build a start up to a profitable business. We are a consulting company with strong experience individuals that can advised on marketing, overall operations, and profitability. 

What we Offer: We offer strong business partnership to take the start up from start to a sustainable status of profit & consistent branding.

Competitor: There are other competitors out there that does what we do, however being an owner (shareholder) from the very beginning is rare. Typically businesses like us would ask for a few years and certain dollar amount spent before making a decision. Or a Non--profit that offer the similar services without the extra hands on treatment. 

Competitive AdvantageBeing a startup ourselves, the struggles are not unknown to us.  Tara, our CEO, has an impeccable business background and understands the need to acquire an outstanding marketing team that supports our business entrepreneurs, which we have done.  By already securing a strong relationship with our manufacturing contacts, we created a wholesale environment for our small business – saving them a lot of money and building a phenomenal revenue stream for the future.  We have yet to discover anyone willing to help other businesses succeed by implementing HR procedures, providing marketing or financial advice, or other components that may be needed but are hard to attain for the common small business startup owner. A business planning and execution team that teams up with the start up and owning a piece of the business guaranteed success. 

Accomplishments: We currently build two startups under out belt. ArxegozEats & ArxegozBeuaty. Each business is running off of a 25% growth the first 6 month and a 10% overhead. We're predicting both business will be at 65% growth by end of 2018 with a 10% marketing/branding ownership of the surround community. 

Team of Investors/SupportersThere are currently five investors in Arxegoz. The main investor and Founder of Arxegoz, Inc. is Tara Tran-Viray.  Tara is a published author, a certified John Maxwell Leadership trainer and has over 20 years in customer service.  She is a strong networker who connects people and has an unparalleled knack of building solid and lasting relationships.  Her management experience spans seventeen years; out of those years, four out of five major leadership roles were all startup opportunities that grew from 10% to 40% in growth.  Tara held several leadership positions such as; District Manager of 28 business owners, CEO of a startup agency that sold above 35% of other agencies, State Director for the whole State operation, and Chief Operating Officer for a startup company. Tara might humbly claim that her biggest professional accomplishment is building a team of 28 from scratch in less than three years, all the while maintaining a profitability of a high 40%+ in revenue, however, her greatest life achievements are being a mother of two wonderful children and a wife of an honorable Marine. 

Why do we seek Funding? 

A typical business cost to start the first two years is between 100k to 200k, a bank loan requires two years of experience to be approve, and using consultants to help build the business takes another 100k to search. We have the resources, we just seek funding to help build the business to be sustainable the first year and profit by year two. We truly appreciate any contributions or gift to help us build dreams for others.

We seek the funding to have the ability to raise more operational capital to help to serve future entrepreneurs.

Thank you. We believe in the power of people. Motivation. Positive vibes. Emotional Intelligence. And most importantly, Appreciation. Thank you for learning more about us, and thank you for believing in us.

The Project FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Who are we? Having all been entrepreneurs themselves and/or growing up around them, each investor understood the hardship that comes when building, and sustaining, a business.  Looking around us, we see giants such as Amazon, Boeing and Microsoft continue to grow in our communities; swallowing up any opportunities for the “young ones”.  Using the TV show ‘Shark Tank’ for inspiration, however scaling it down to focus on business ownership resources, Arxegoz teams up with a startup and helps them build a strong platform through business consulting, financial advisory, marketing support and guidance for manufacturing options so the main business owner can focus on their talent/craft.  Arxegoz is a derivative of the Greek word ‘Archegos’ meaning: to lead; to believe; an author of their own belief; to build
  • Who are our clients?  Our clients are any small businesses that yearn to grow and tire of losing to the major corporations.  Arxegoz, Inc. ultimately selects and approves which businesses they will help to evolve and thrive.
  • Sales? Marketing? We have a strong focus on our smaller businesses so we utilize a marketing vendor who has over 30 years’ experience to ensure they flourish.  To get our name out in the community, we have created websites; flood social media with various content; door to door; several creative writing pieces which are entered into magazines or articles within community papers; flyers.
  • How long have we been around? Arxegoz, Inc. officially started January, 2017.  It was extremely important that we created a solid business plan in place before we took a major risk.  Having devising processes and a system worth following by drafting a blueprint of our startup, it gave us a strong start for the first two businesses, Arxegoz Eats and Arxegoz Beauty, which launched July 2017 and November 2017, respectively.  We feel by using the Arxegoz name for the first two investments will show credibility for other startups, however, the Arxegoz name will be restricted to those two, unless mutually agreed upon.
  • Competitive Advantage?  Being a startup ourselves, the struggles are not unknown to us.  Tara, our COO, has an impeccable business background and understands the need to acquire an outstanding marketing team that supports our business entrepreneurs, which we have done.  By already securing a strong relationship with our manufacturing contacts, we created a wholesale environment for our small business – saving them a lot of money and building a phenomenal revenue stream for the future.  We have yet to discover anyone willing to help other businesses succeed by implementing HR procedures, providing marketing or financial advice, or other components that may be needed but are hard to attain for the common small business startup owner.
  • What makes us different than Shark Tank? Unlike Shark Tank. We do not have the generous funding and instant network. We do have a similar passion. Build on people’s dream. We invest through our own work effort, put our time and energy and limited funding resource to help other business as a shareholder. We succeed together. Like Shark Tank, we’re selective on our selection. We do our research on the business, and then seek them out. We meet with the individual several times to make sure we all do have the same vision. We hold a focus group to gather opinions of the market of this particular business. We spend a lot of time together in learning of our strengths and weakness. We find out if we can help, and do they need our help. We set the goal and mission together so communication is strong from day one. We set up legal contracts, and financial planning to be able to move to our first official planning meeting.
  • Why Us? BECAUSE WE CARE. WE WON'T SUCCEED IF THEY DON'T SUCCEED.
