This is a fun company name. At trade shows, capital-hungry hyenas see my name tag and swarm towards me like the friendly folks on Desker Road. The word "Ventures" gives them heady visions of blank checks and new boats. I smile and explain that it is a name that describes the various activities I undertake, and that "I will be what I will be" (as it were).
