The History & Insight Behind
AngelPreneur & It's Founder
AngelPreneur Venture Group (APVG), is a privately-held Wyoming corporation that serves mainly as a"Family Office-like" asset investment, management and venture development firm. APVG was first established in 2011 by our Founder, Peter “The AngelPreneur” Ortmann, 65, aka: Petey to family members, and The Shark to his business associates (as represented within the corporate logo). The Shark is a serial
entrepreneur inspired in part by two icons: Walt Disney's "If You Can Dream It, You Can Build It", and
Apple co-founder Steve Jobs' - "Never Quit" attitudes.
The Shark truly believes that one can not
maintain a positive attitude or generate a
positive outcome by surrounding yourself
with those who always maintain a negative
mindset. So he socially distances himself
from the naysayers whenever possible - a
challenge to say the least in todays world!
Our "Just Cause" business management
strategies incorporate several principals
outlined in the Infinite Game - Mindset To
Business in the 21st Century - as presented
by Simon Sinek in this video.
The Shark is an offshore sailor who is passionate about addressing the ocean issues, having grown up along the Southern California Coast near Malibu and Ventura. He had a successful specialty metal works fabrication and industrial general contracting business for many years there. In 2002, as a result of the tragic events of 9/11/01, his businesses suffered leading him to close them, selling his home, then leaving California in 2003 for Las Vegas, Nevada.
In true entrepreneurial spirit, The Shark and Corrin, his wife of 25 years, set out to restart their lives. That life journey, however, had many bumps and bad days, but led them on multiple extended stay trips to beautiful British Columbia,Canada, sailing the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean and over a year in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. Eventually, it led them back home to Las Vegas.
Although the years since were both enlightening and difficult at times, The Shark never quit or gave up on Building His Dream Businesses and Foundation. A true out-of-the-box, well-orchestrated large-scale
disruptive vision with a self-funded business development approach. It has undergone many changes and refinement over the years.
The Shark worked with his small team of associates within Canada, the USA, and Caribbean to refine his various projects over the years, as online technologies and social media platforms improved. In the end he had created a diversified portfolio of companies in the "Mother-of-all-Start-ups" that you see today.
It has taken many years and well over $2.4 million to get The Shark's vision to this point, enduring many unexpected set-backs and challenges along the way. This year with Covid and the election dynamics has delayed our launch. Depending on the outcome we are will be ready to excel starting in December.
The Shark's take-away from those prior experiences was learning that we must:
1) "Never Let Other People's Perceptions of You or Your Ideas - Become Your Reality."
2) "Nothing Worth Having Ever Comes Easy." and
3) "Always believe in yourself no matter how crazy some may think you are."
Beginning later this year The Shark will hopefully begin the build-out process and hosting his PodCast Series The AngelPreneur Building The Dream In Real Time. The Series is part of The Shark's innovative
business and foundation entertainment marketing strategy.The Shark is a CEO with a unique mission and clear vision of how to build his combined businesses, which will make for a steady dose of reality content for several years to come.
The Shark does not consider himself an environmentalist, but rather a realist. He is not anti-plastic, but believes we MUST manage our plastic packaging waste and marine litter better. He is neither liberal or conservative, but an independent thinker who loves America and all she represents, does his own research on politics and other topics in search of the truth and draws conclusions accordingly.
The Shark will always advocate for the issues important to him within the PodCast. His goal is to drive the necessary outrage on the issues he is passionate about to effect real worldwide change. He believes that if we do nothing, one day we will still reach our final paradise beach destination, only it will be buried in plastic packaging waste and dead sea life.
An estimated 10 million tons of plastic waste reaches our oceans and accumulates on our coastlines annually, killing off not only our oceans and marine life, but ourselves. Despite the endless problems and issues we all face at home, we must stop ignoring the oceans. The oceans are our largest natural food and Oxygen resource on Earth, and they are not too big to fail.
Successful change in the global mindset of how we all buy, consume and manage this plastic packaging waste, certainly in the new Covid-19 world of increased plastic usage, is one of The Sharks principal
goals and objectives. It's a cause worth fighting for and together we can solve this man-made issue.
Our businesses will help deliver these messages and offer viable solutions. Join us in that effort, subscribe to The AngelPreneur PodCast, buy a copy of the APVG/CBO Business Plan or better yet join the AngelPreneur FoundersClub and become a part of the solution.
Although The Shark is an Independent, he strongly
believes that in order for our country and APVG to
succeed in the years ahead, we all need to stay
positive, strong and forward looking, with a pro-
business, pro-american and pro-truth Federal and
State government whenever possible.
For this reason The Shark proudly supports our
President Donald J Trump in his efforts to get
reelected to a second term. This video sums up
our feelings well and we hope you will take the
time to watch it. NOTE: Volume alert!
