Seeking development funding for lucrative startup in a strategically critical sector

Hi FriendsMay I take advantage of this opportunity to briefly tap into your collective knowledge and expertise? I appear to be caught in the old trap. Some months ago (inspired by the unfulfilled potential of a small South African company called Lilliput Treatment Technologies International that I have been working with) ... I came up with a fantastic business concept which goes under the working title 'CAPRICORN'.The potential is so vast and the opportunity so huge that I have been pursuing it…See More

Right time, right place opportunities!

The Eastern seaboard of South Africa is one of the world’s most attractive coastlines. It is set to soon become one of its MOST VALUABLE.In one of the many weird idiosyncrasies of the Apartheid era this magnificent area was transformedin the 60's and 70's into the quasi-independent ‘homelands’ of Transkei and Ciskei. Developers have largely ignored the area eversince.  Instead the wealthy folk from Johannesburg and overseas descended on places like Cape Town, Durban, the KwaZulu Natal North and…See More

Profile Information

About Me:
Who is Ian Bentley?

I was trained as an artist, and emerged as a talented and award-winning draughtsman and painter.

But, having been brought up with a strong social conscience during the Apartheid era in South Africa, my art took a back seat.

Looking back, I realise my life has fitted into 3 fairly rigid segments that eventually merged with each other.

The first part was really all about learning to be an artist and graphic designer … then instead of using my given talents to the benefit myself and my 'bewitched audience', decided instead to concentrate my attentions on battling the Apartheid political establishment ... from my schooldays till the beginning of the Nineteen Nineties;

The second part was doing my bit, from 1994 and through the first six years of the new millennium, was to a significant extent dedicated towards assisting in the birthing process of the New South Africa - by solving problems, mediating conflicts, reconciling parties and promoting a safe and harmonious social environment;

The thirds part started perhaps two years ago when I finally come to the realisation that I am, at long last, a free agent unconstrained by my physical environment ... a born-again-maverick in an infinitely-connected World.

At the moment I am in the process of launching an initiative called Sorcerers. It connects brilliant ideas to the people who can implement them.

One of the core team who are driving the initiative called it 'The Law of Attraction in Action'!

It's going to release disruptive innovation that could change the World.
