of their demographic and economic similarity to Atlanta, and because of the business opportunities available in each city.
Wright hopes that funding for Road One’s expansion will come from the angel investors he’s currently courting. “We need about $3 million to pull this off,” says Wright, who plans to blanket the area between the East Coast and Midwest with his firm’s services. “We know that we can only grow so big by staying in Atlanta, and that growth would probably flatten out at around $20 million. With our expansion strategy, we’ll be a $100 million company within five years.”
