James Dudra. “We have seen tremendous interest from FundingPost’s investor community and look forward to closing our first round of capital intended to support the company’s future growth.”
“There are a few key factors that make a successful company: A great product, the ability to sell that product, and having a huge market to sell it to,” said Joe Rubin, Director, FundingPost. “Eco Touch has these points in abundance and the Investors have taken notice.”
