    Yathink? It kinda sounds scammy to me. What “services” are they offering? Are they registered as financial advisors?

    I’m sure Jarnell probably made some legit money. Maybe he has done well as an entrepreneur individually and brought his brother along into projects with his own seed money. But if they are trying to bring in investor $$$ that raises some mega red flags, hope they know what they are doing and we don’t read about some fraud 5 or 10 years from now because $$$ disappeared.

    I hear you. I just wanted to let Gator fans know what happened to a former Gator who unfortunately dropped out of sight.

    Seems they are touting their own horn. Good for them. Hope they can keep the money coming, success is when you look back and see the fruit of your labor!

    “Isaiah has over 5 years of experience with investing in the hotels & apartments… industries.”

    That’s called paying rent.

    One of the "beauties" of VC is one does not need to be licensed-HOWEVER, most (see almost ALL) but team Stokes have extensive experience in top tier banking.

    One Primary reason for lack of licensing is that it is perceived that VC Clients are largely Sophisticated Investors.
