CARSON CITY, Nev.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Growth Resources, Assets, Safety, & Stability (“GRASS™”)—a qualified opportunity zone fund focused on applying cutting-edge technology to complex compliance processes, is pleased to announce their Reg A+ funding round is now open. While most Opportunity Zone and other tax-deferred investments are reserved for the very wealthy, GRASS™ is open to investors of all income and experience levels, and is the first-to-market RegA+ opportunity zone fund.
GRASS™ offers major tax benefits to investors of all levels because it is both a Qualified Opportunity Zone Fund (“QOZF”) as well as an IRS designated Qualified Small Business Stock (“QSBS”). The minimum investment is $1,000. GRASS™ invests in two areas: blockchain-based SaaS for regulatory compliance, and aviation innovations in government and the private sector.
The SaaS investment is in Sierra Software Systems, which designs and customizes their blockchain-based software for implementation in many highly regulated government and business sectors, each with multi-billion-dollar potential.
Aviation investments in the fund focus on innovators in government and the private sector who are replicating and scaling aviation businesses in current and additional Opportunity Zones including SAMSARG, Inc. and GA Hangars.
SAMSARG secures high-tech hangar facilities that require focused specifications to service transport and cargo aircraft, including security system installation, additional maintenance and complex compliance documentation. Private aviation was on the rise before COVID-19 and is expected to continue.
GA Hangers offers new construction of advanced aircraft hangars adjacent to SAMSARG military (Department of Defense compliant) facilities within the Opportunity Zone. New constructions are designed to attract government, corporate and wealthy clients. GA Hangars offers new construction to serve TRIC corporations’ travel needs while offering a short trip between Nevada’s TRIC and Silver Springs Regional Airport (as opposed to Reno International). GA Hangars also provides tailored service, maintenance, and other high-margin services.
