Community Spotlight: MotivDeals Lands Partnership with LakePoint Sports

What is MotivDeals Fundraising?

MotivDeals fundraising is the digital version of those plastic fundraising deal cards and booklets that organizations sell to local residents in order to raise money. The old way was to sell a physical deal card or booklet with deals on them, requiring the customer to physically keep the card on them in order to redeem. But now, MotivDeals introduces the sales of memberships to local residents that allows people to receive local deals through their smart phone.

Recently, MotivDeals Fundraising has developed a great partnership with LakePoint Sports!

What is LakePoint Sports?

LakePoint Sports is well on its way to becoming one of the world’s largest and most exceptional destinations for travel sports. With over 1,400 acres of land nestled near the beautiful North Georgia Mountains, LakePoint will offer state-of-the-art sports venues. With nearly five million square feet of special amenities including themed retail, onsite hotels, restaurants, ziplines, water parks and many more attractions, there’s sure to be enough fun for the entire family.

MotivDeals and LakePoint Collaborate

The LakePoint Deals Applications have successfully been accepted into the iOS & Android stores and are currently in beta testing. What next, you ask? MotivDeals and LakePoint plan to roll out their deal platform in early 2016.  This platform will be 100% free for the millions of LakePoint guests each year, and the Atlanta businesses will have a great opportunity to partner with LakePoint to gain some premium advertisement space targeting out of town visitors!

This collaboration will also open the doors for MotivDeals and give exposure to millions of sports teams from across the country, allowing them too, to #FundraiseAnywhere!

Incubator in Peachtree Corners Announces Second Tenant – Motivdeals!

We haven’t officially opened yet, but the need for a local business accelerator seems obvious, and companies are already moving in. Small companies in Gwinnett and the surrounding area are looking for all of the advantages of an incubator, but without the commute to Midtown. With growing interest and excitement of the possibility of a local incubator, we are proud to be able to house these entrepreneurs. Peachtree Corners Technology Incubator, PCTI, is located right off Peachtree Industrial and is dedicating over 20,000 square feet of space for qualifying start-up companies.

First Tenant Lands at Peachtree Corners Technology Incubator

In some recent blogs, I have written about the need for a technology incubator in Peachtree Corners, and the types of companies that would likely thrive in this type of environment.

The incubator is still just an idea—but an idea that is rapidly gaining steam and interest in the community. Incubators have thrived inside the perimeter—ATV and ATDC have potential tenants lined up to apply for admission. However, out here in the suburbs, people have questioned whether we have the “cool factor,” the access to smart people, or the entrepreneurial spirit of those in the city. My guess is that we can create this environment, and that some of these entrepreneurs actually live right here among us and commute to the incubators in the city—wishing there was a Gwinnett option to avoid hours in the car.

Steal My Idea!

Entrepreneurs are usually “idea people,” and I have had my share of good and bad ideas.   I have thought of hundreds if not thousands of new business venture ideas over the past few years.   Most, if not all of them, would have required commitment, time, and expertise that I certainly did not have – not while running another company.   In the meantime, I am thinking of starting an incubator in Peachtree Corners.   I wish I could remember all the ideas, but for now I will try to remember three of them. Two of which I think are good ones and one not so much.  You can decide for yourself  which category each idea belongs.   Also, I have neither patented nor researched any of these, nor do I intend to pursue them.   If you like it, feel free to “steal my idea,” but only steal it if you promise to launch your company in my incubator.

Calling All Gwinnett Startups

Twenty years ago, Technology Park in Peachtree Corners was a hub for technology companies in Atlanta. Today, however, the buildings seem tired, with many sporting sale and lease signs in their windows. Occupancy rates are at an all-time low.

I am hoping for a resurgence of growth and investment in the area – led by the growth in Big Data, the Internet of Things, and Cloud Computing
