Testimonials

"For those of you that are asking yourself whether this site is real, the answer is yes. My first thought was that I would put my proposal on the site and it would be sent for review, and at this point someone from within the Dealflow Investment Network office would contact me as an investor so I would be more likely to pay the $249 fee. I received 8 responses from investors overnight and 2 more since then. Thanks Dealflow Investment Network."

Married, living in downtown Chicago and in my mid-30s. I have 10+ years of banking experience, with a current position of Vice President in Financial Performance Management. My wife, currently a physician, is supportive in exploring investment opportunities that make sense for all potential partners. I have a personal interest in exploring investment opportunities where I can provide my experience and money to further business development. I am also open to silent investments given strong business proposals. My passion for investing comes from my father, a former business owner, and my personal fixation on building a financial portfolio beyond my day-to-day obligations at work where I can extend my skills and personality to help build a good business. I’d describe myself as approachable, hands-on, motivated and easy to work with.
