Welcome back to the Vision Blog - 1st Video of 13 week series

My last post was 9/11 as I went into the trenches to do battle with the dragon of Financing Risk.

Young businesses fail more often due to financing risk than any other. I was determined not to let this distract Local Motors so I made a decision to adjust my focus and schedule in order to bring more power to bear on this issue. Hence the hiatus in the Vision Blog. Many of you have written me to ask when it would return, and I so appreciated your contact.

As of 2 days ago, I am pleased to announced that we have closed on a substantial multi-million $ round of financing from some of the most visionary and supportive investors worldwide.

Given the power of this fundraising and the interest, we have decided to continue to raise more $ while the "iron is hot" so we will detail the final close details when we are all done....nonetheless, the Vision Blog will return.

Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow, I am at PopTech 09 conference in Camden, ME. It is a great conference and marks a special day as it is coincident with the launch of the first of our first video in a 13 week series. Every Wednesday night at 10pm EST for the next 12 weeks we will debut a new video chronicling the story of local motors.

You can see these launches at our YouTube channel

Please enjoy the story and repost, retweet, email, and share with your friends. These are going to be 12 exciting weeks.
