Further, this site and its features are merely a matter of a propose solution for Offering Municipal Bonds to the general public using Municipal Bond UIT Funds that distributes investments base on the geographical location of potential investors. With that in mind it is the intent of the developers of Gogo bonds to create a Municipal Bond Fund Portal that raises a total $1M per Municipal Trust Fund to purchase municipal bonds from the estimated 3,144 Municipalities in the United States without bias, based on Investor’s residence, and to use Municipal Bonds as collateral to underwrite Business Loans that will be made to qualified existing and start-up companies limited to either national implementation or local operations within the respective municipalities.

The number of Underwriting votes determines if the companies funding request will be met which determines if  listed companies are funded.  This partnership results in the organization of a business loans or equity stakes being made to companies using Gogopublic.com as the crowdfunding portal.

Further, we will only seek exemption based on Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act for the Companies that are deemed issuers, which requires that Form C to be registered with SEC or Self Regulatory Authority.  At full capacity the process briefly explained  herein is expected to generate over $3.144B in municipal bond revenues, and subsequently underwrite $2.3B in equity transactions and small business loans with an average of $250,000 per loan will enable Consulate Investments to fund 9,200 start-ups per year, at full operating capacity. Of which we are in the early stages of organizing and we maintain that we seek to comply with Federal Laws establish by the SEC, with a more define concentration on purchasing municipal bonds without bias distributed across the Municipalities of the United States.
