🚨 Investment Opportunity🚨

As a Daily Dropout reader, you are invited to invest in this week's startup, Endeavour.

Invest in Endeavour

This week’s startup deploys $1 billion+ of capital into US Defense programs, with the goal of becoming the default financing portal for the Nation’s most vital challenges.

⚾ The Elevator Pitch:

Space and Defense entrepreneurs in America lack access to traditional financing. They have brilliant ideas that could revolutionize the world, but no capital to progress them. Mainstream VCs ignore the government sector, and banks don’t seem to support short-term loans secured by Government contract work. Additionally, the traditional banking system requires a lot of technical paperwork which sometimes is a bit hard to close, considering most defense projects contain classified information.

Endeavour solves financing problems in government by providing cash-advances for defense departments such as NASA, the US Navy, and the US Army. Here’s how it works:

  1. Government contractors send invoices to Endeavour
  2. Endeavour advances up to 90% of the cash within hours
  3. The government pays Endeavour directly when the invoices are due
  4. The balance of the invoice is sent to the client, minus invoice fees.
