Why I fight for Haiti

  --by Adam-Paul, Co-Founder of SECURE Tool Smolak Industries primarily invests in world-changing private companies. However, we also have a distinguished track record of working with governments at all levels (city, state, federal) to develop economic initiatives to revitalize economies and bring investment and economic opportunities for businesses and citizens. The reason I continue offering services to governments, instead of focusing exclusively on private investment, is because of two thought-shaping events: While a student at Union College, I attended a speech by Jesse Jackson where he argued that to create lasting economic equality in America, we must "bring up the bottom" socio-economic communities,...
