MIAMI, June 25, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ -- New Christian entrepreneur magazine goes live online with plans to offer seed funding for new startups and small businesses.
The online format of hot new Christian entrepreneur publication G-Code Magazine has gone live featuring an exclusive interview with Christian music artist and songwriter Cornell Jermaine, and a mission to provide startup capital to at least 100 new small businesses in the next 18 months.
Despite the recent ups and downs in the economy the Conference Board Consumer Confidence Index figures released this month show consumer confidence hitting its highest level in 5 years, beating out forecasts by analysts. Similarly May 2013's data from the National Federation of Independent Business revealed a second month of improved confidence among small business owners as the index hit 94.4.
However, the most recent figures from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) show small business lending still under 2011 volumes, with funding for new startups at less than half the amount provided to existing companies. This means that while the optimism and desire to launch new businesses is out there, obtaining the capital to get business ideas off the ground can still be a real challenge.
This is where G-CodeMagazine.com, a Christian Entrepreneur Magazine publication, slash online accelerator aims to come to the aid of aspiring entrepreneurs and small business owners. The site which is the first phase of the magazine, which is to soon be released as a tablet magazine and available in print, proclaims its mission to be "inspiring and empowering entrepreneurs to launch and grow highly successful and ethical businesses."
Readers will discover an incredible variety of content from online marketing tips to case studies in branding, leadership advice, tech and mobile marketing news, as well of course as how-to guides for leveraging crowdfunding and successfully approaching angel investors and venture capitalists. This month's issue also includes an exclusive interview with Cornell Jermaine on "Hacking Social Media" and "how to break into the music business for aspiring musicians and artists."
According to G-Code's website the publisher will be donating 10% of all profits to charitable and faith based initiatives. This is in addition to 10% of profits being used to fund new Christian led startups. The magazine is also a member of the Christian Chamber of Southwest Florida through which it hopes to be able to help fuel even more growth in ethical businesses.
Co-founder Tim Houghten who was raised on the mission field himself says the vision for G-Code Magazine came from a burning desire to "help more aspiring Christian entrepreneurs to realize that there is help for them to get their ideas off the ground and funded" and to "truly empower them with the tools and tips needed to build highly successful God-centric businesses."
