Why we are Bulletproof

Diamonds are build under pressure. So are we.

Perfect match with the bulletproof methodology

By sheer necessity and by learning it the hard way we had to become BulletProof ourselves.
Fortunately we had the luck to be able to overcome our setbacks.
These insights now serve us well and is the foundation on which this company is build.

Our manifesto

Do good

We promise to do good in this world. We do this by always thinking about the well being of our children. Is what we do beneficiary for them.

Listen

We promise to be the biggest critic of our own work. We will listen objectively to what other people have to say. When in doubt we play devils advocate.

Higher goals

Money will never be the key driver. It’s not the money that is powerful, but what you do with it. We acknowledge this an look for the higher end goals to the things we do.

We are

We support businesses by providing Capital and Expertise in Branding, Marketing, Technology and a High Performance Mindset. As an investment firm we are focused on seasoned entrepreneurs and companies who are cash flow positive and are ready to scale exponential.

We believe every seasoned entrepreneur should have the opportunity of becoming the successful entrepreneur that he/she always dreamed of becoming.

Unfortunately you are left out. That’s where we come in. We believe you are the engine of growth of the economy. That’s why we support you.

And we are bulletproof at

Innovation, creativity, strategy.
Basically the soul of a company.

The engine of a company.

Our firms pledge

Our mission

We feel the need to help as many seasoned entrepreneurs as possible. So let's dream and why stop here. There are even more entrepreneurs in the third country world. Can you imagine what that would mean?

Our people

We don't believe in the ``one strike and you're out`` mentality. So we are forgiving as long as you are willing to take ownership of your mistakes. We also believe in starting out small and easy to understand business models. Enjoy having a ``lemonade stand``.

Our history

Yes we all had to grow from having absolutely nothing. But heck, this is what life is about. Growing. So let's be part of this evolutionary process.

Our focus

Focus does not mean only doing one thing. Is means knowing when to do only one thing. This is an art we are always mastering.

Our firms setup

To stay BulletProof we have a very straightforward and flat team model in place. So every founder has both an individual team responsibility, with a team of maximum 10 people and an overall firms team responsibility.

Questions

Yes. As our firm’s principles state we are building a 10 founding fathers/mothers and 100 people strong BulletProof working force. So when you understand what we are doing (our mission) and are certain you can withstand our rigorous yet very human application process. Reach out to us.

We maintain a strict expansion protocol that best fits our growth targets. Every year we have only two fixed 6-week on boarding periods where new team members – from Interns to Fathers – get the attention they deserve in order to seamlessly flow into our organisation.

Random hiring is not part of the BulletProof Methodology and results in a suboptimal on-boarding experience for our new talents, whilst also putting an unnecessary and inefficient strain on our incumbent employees.

Our cycles always run from:

1. Mid January until the end of February
2. Mid September until the end of October

Yes we very much believe in the new way of working. People used to work for long periods of time for just one company. As we need our people to stay open minded we need them to stay involved in working opportunities that keep them energized.

We have to very strict principles when it comes down to working with Freelancers. One of these principles is the payment of there fees within 48 hours and always working with a combination of pre-mid-after payments.

Reach of to use for more details.

Yes. But what always works best. Make yourselves stand-out and us want to reach out to you. How? be creative and take your future in your own hands. That’s the BulletProof way.

So let’s say we’ve got the team covered and the fathers/mothers covered. Do we need more help. Yes.. we love talking to interestingpeopletalks.com. Perhaps you might pay them a visit.
