Burlington based real-estate development and investment firm launches the LEAP program to promote entrepreneurship and support small businesses.
Entrepreneurs are the driving engine of our economy and small-to-medium sized enterprises (SMEs) constitute a substantial proportion of our economy. The LEAP program allows LJM to propel further innovation and drive in this sector. In Canada, and in our direct community particularly, we would like to see more entrepreneurs emerge and create new business opportunities says Shaheryar Mian who leads business development at LJM Developments.
LEAP aims to provide funding, office space, and strategic guidance to start-ups. LJM Developments commercial real-estate focus allows the company to leverage part of its commercial space toward co-working office use for entrepreneurs. In addition, LJM itself emerged as a small business and as such aims to provide strategic guidance to entrepreneurs from noteworthy lessons the firm acquired through its own experience and milestones.
Mian further explains The biggest challenge for a lot of entrepreneurs is lack of initial capital funding coupled with basic infrastructure such as office space. By providing the basic framework to entrepreneurs, LJM can bring to life new businesses that would otherwise face a difficult time coming to the fore.
LJMs core business is to construct and manage residential and commercial real-estate. The companys commercial portfolio gave access to tenants, most of whom own and manage their own businesses, which serves as further motivation for the company to fund such endeavors. LJM also diversified its business in the hospitality space by making investments in restaurant businesses.
We are excited for the launch of our entrepreneur accelerator program and look forward to discussing new business ideas with entrepreneurs, and also plan on engaging the City to work with us in helping promote entrepreneurial spirit in our communities says Mian.

Actor Ashton Kutcher has just put his Hollywood Hills home up for sale, quietly shopping it at $ 12 million. Thats out of the question for most mere mortals, but like everyone else, Kutcher will need the right escrow partner to do the job right.
Finding the right real estate agent to help you sell your home is critically important, says Casey LeBlanc, president of New Venture Escrow. No less important is choosing the best escrow partner for your specific needs and situation. When it comes to the complicated process of selling your house, this choice can make a world of difference.
LeBlanc offers these tips for finding the best escrow partner:
Ask around. Theres plenty of information online about escrow services, but combing through all that material takes considerable time and energy. In most cases, the first place to start is by asking your Real Estate agent for two escrow options that they have experience with and recommend. Secondly, its more efficient to canvas family members, friends, work colleagues and others who have recently sold a house. Who can they recommend? Who do they say to avoid?
Its entirely possible that someone in your personal or professional network can recommend an escrow agent who not only met, but exceeded their expectations, LeBlanc notes.
Independent status. The best escrow partner is someone who can serve as a completely neutral third party, with no formal ties to a real estate company or insurance firm that might influence their actions, LeBlanc says. LeBlanc advises asking more questions about in house escrow or shared ownership arrangements.
The California Department of Business Oversight can verify if an escrow agent is truly independent (meaning the individual and his or her company has met and satisfied all of the licensing requirements set forth by California escrow law). More valuable consumer information on this topic can be found on the CADBO website.
The right experience and resources. Armed with some referrals, its time to dig deeper. As LeBlanc says, At the very least, you want an escrow partner whos familiar with the type of house youre selling and who has substantial experience in this field. Make a quick call to review experience and make sure there is a good personality fit with your escrow team.
Beyond that, its important to learn about their distinctive value proposition and whether they have the resources to meet their clients specific needs. The most qualified escrow partner will use mobile technology to make things easier, including:

Fresh bread and bakery goods wholesalers distribute breads, rolls, cakes, cookies, crackers and baking supplies to retail and food service customers across the United States. The staple nature of some of these products in the American pantry has historically protected the industry somewhat from fluctuations in consumer disposable income. However, in recent years, two major trends have significantly threatened the Fresh Bread and Bakery Goods Wholesaling industry. As retail and food service customers have increasingly consolidated and been able to take advantage of their large-scale operations, wholesale bypass, wherein these customers directly establish supply contracts with bread and bakery goods producers, has begun to pose an existential threat to industry distributors. At the same time, dietary trends discouraging the consumption of gluten and carbohydrates has reduced overall demand for the goods this industry wholesales. Due to this decreased demand and increasing competition, Fresh Bread and Baked Goods Wholesaling industry revenue is expected to fall an annualized 1.1% during the five years to 2014, to $ 29.8 billion. Dietary trends and wholesale bypass will contribute to revenue loss of 1.3% in 2014 alone.
According to IBISWorld Industry Analyst Jocelyn Phillips, Profit margins, however, have increased slightly during the past five years, largely as a result of companies across the industry engaging in cost-cutting measures and reducing their spending on labor and wages accordingly. Major industry acquisitions (such as industry leader Sysco acquiring its largest competitor, US Foods) have also buoyed industry profit, as merged companies are able to reduce redundancies, corner a larger share of the market and enjoy higher margins. Nonetheless, heightened pricing competition has made it increasingly difficult for smaller companies to survive, and the total number of industry enterprises is expected to fall 1.9% over the five years to 2014.
Demand for bread and bakery goods is projected to grow somewhat in the five years to 2019, which is expected to drive slight revenue growth during the period, says Phillips. A growing number of US households (who drive grocery consumption) and an expected uptick in wheat consumption are expected to contribute to this slow growth. Wholesale bypass will likely continue to plague industry operators, but margins are expected to continue slowly increasing, and industry revenue will likely grow 0.4% per year on average, to nearly $ 30.3 billion in the five years to 2019.
