I am very pleased to be featured in the GSA Business Report in an article written by Krys Merryman.
Below is an excerpt:
“Greenville entrepreneur launches $30K startup competition
“When Erik Weir was 5 years old, he started selling lemonade. It was a speech impediment that fueled the fire leading to his entrepreneurial success. He bought his first car when he was 13 years old, purchased his first real estate right out of college, and quickly felt he could not only make his own dreams come true but also those of someone else.
Instead of going to work for some place he didn’t enjoy, he got into investing in college when he started buying stocks and secured his real estate license at age 18.
“I was curious about investing and realized you can have passive investments that work for you while you’re sleeping,” said Weir. “Not everyone wants to be an entrepreneur or investor, but you can help you and your family create a better life with those opportunities.”
Weir will invest in South Carolina and its entrepreneurs with $30k PowerUp: A South Carolina StartUp Competition…”
