Why ICONS PLATINUM?

Investment program

In our business experience, too many times we have come across individuals and companies that never tried to implement their idea or project for lack of funding, support, fear or simply because their daily routine was more important than making their dream come true. Too often we do not want to risk our present for our future.

These are the reasons why we have developed this new investment program and business accelerator engagement & support program, to unleash the potential within each and every one of YOU.

Icons platinum is here to give you a chance!     The opportunity you were waiting for!    Stop for a moment and think.

  • What if you had the opportunity to express yourself for achieving a better future without destabilizing your present?
  • What if you could take that idea of yours and prove it right without giving up your current job?
  • What if you could finally challenge yourself and stand out from the crowd?
  • What if you could make your dream come true and realize your ambitions?
  • What if you tried it and found out that you can finally live your dream and make the change you were waiting for?

Platinum is the answer to all of this and much more!

It will give you the resources, the power and the tools, but ultimately… YOU have to switch on the light!

Sometimes you see just “mountains” and it’s hard to see the “path”! Platinum is the path!

It’s about you! Don’t be afraid to push the barrier!

Deep inside, we all have our unique and secret reasons for seeking success and give life to our ambitions, but think in terms that no one will help you be something or achieve something in your life but yourself. You have to take your life in your own hands and we will give you the tools and opportunity to express yourself.

 Did you ever get an opportunity to really change your life?

Are you ready to believe in yourself?

We are ready to invest in you!

It is the moment to give yourself, your company or your idea a chance. Write your own history!

FAQ

Q:     Why do I have to pay the PLATINUM-Funding Subscription Admin Fee?

A:     The PLATINUM-Funding subscription admin fee is intended to contribute to admin charges related to the project / funding-request submission and registration. However, it is not the reason for its implementation. Being such an insignificant amount, the main purpose for its introduction is to test the grounds of commitment of the requesting party (The Proponent). In the PLATINUM-Funding-committee view, if the admin fee is creating a barrier for the submission, the assumption is that the project / funding-request is most likely not worth pursuing as The Proponent is not ready to commit for it with pocket change. In this case, it is the PLATINUM-Funding-committee view that the amount of work, time and resources required to evaluate the submitted proposals are better spent with project / funding requests that The Proponents are committed to and have the determination to stand for.
