During his career Jon Moises has gone smaller in order to grow his bottom line. That path led him to start his own company recently,
Growth Works Ventures
"I was progressively moving from a large company to smaller and smaller companies," says Moises, managing partner of Growth Works Ventures. "I said, 'It's great working for a start-up but it's better to work for yourself.'"
So he and a friend, Chris Meerschaert, started Growth Works Ventures a little more than a year ago. The digital marketing company now employs three people and is based out of Royal Oak. It specializes in everything from creating websites to search-engine-optimization to social media. It is also looking to create its own software platforms to diversity the company's offerings to services and products.
Growth Works Ventures is also open to partnering with other entrepreneurs that are looking to capitalize on new ideas but might be short on actual capital. It has already partnered with one of it customers trading marketing and software services for a share of the company.
"We found that a lot of start-ups had a hard time generating revenue or coming up with capital," Moises says.
