Jon Taffer Toasts to a True Diamond in the Rough: Halagard

Jon Taffer, author, restaurateur, and host of Spike TV’s Bar Rescue has just released a podcast with his latest, exciting discovery: Halagard “this is going to change the world by creating the accessibility to money and bringing capital to support Small Businesses and Opportunity Zones in an incredibly innovative way”. Taffer proclaimed.

Halagard has crafted an innovative method of selling equity for business owners and projects to raise much-needed capital. For the first time in 100 years, smaller companies have a choice between selling equity or getting loan for capital. Jeff Hudson, Halagard CEO, said, “Small business owners should have the same opportunity as large companies to use equity for capital. With Halagard, they do.”

Halagard streamlines the capital process by removing middlemen, leveraging a fully SEC compliant patent pending private marketplace to keep the cost of capital down. Investors love Halagard because every deal is standardized, allowing for streamlined analysis. Jeff Hudson said, “We are receiving tremendous interest from opportunity zones, business owners, and investors and soon will fire up the deal engine.”

The Halagard Marketplace is free, now is the time to get your capital

  • Non-OZ Business/Startups should begin here.
