There is NO monetary investment needed from anyone or the State of Maryland except the goodwill of forward thinking individuals who are willing to help propel the State of Maryland to the #1 State in the United States and region worldwide for high tech startups.

II. What Are the Benefits to You and the State of Maryland?
I am very excited because
1. we can attract $12 Billion in capital investments and create 1,080,000 million high paying jobs
2. Colleges and Universities Professors, Students and Professionals in Maryland will benefit from equity stakes
In addition, small businesses will benefit from a high concentration or clusters of high growth startups companies, High Paying Jobs and Economic Growth. Learn more at http://www.paugustin.com/financial
III. Why Should You Care?
Historically, $1 million in Angel Investment creates 90 jobs over a 5 years period. There are 12,000 millions in $12 Billions. Therefore, 90 jobs times 12,000 millions are equal to 1,080,000 jobs over 10 years. Learn more at http://www.paugustin.com/business
Around $50 billion per year of private capital is currently invested in emerging U.S. companies. Approximately 90% of angel investment funds, in contrast to only about 20% of Venture Capital funds, are placed in start-ups and early stage companies.
The impact of venture capital on job creation and the economy is compelling. For example, from 1970 to 2000, U.S. VC firms invested over $270 billion in more than 16,000 companies.
In 2000, the surviving VC-backed companies employed 7.6 million people, representing 5.9% of all U.S. jobs, and generated sales of $1.3 trillion, accounting for 13.1% of the U.S. GDP.
Historical results show an annualized return of 16.7% to investors in some 1,860 U.S. venture capital and private equity partnerships.

My Forefathers' Contributions in United States & South America War of Independence
Worthy Mentioned #1 - Forefathers Participation in U.S. War of Independence
Pierre Richard Augustin Forefathers' participation in the U.S. War of Independence recognized by the United States Congress, H. Res. 909.
It is important to note that my forefathers, the Chasseurs-Volontaires de Saint-Domingue, consisting of over 500 free black men or free men of color willingly left their families and love's one from the Caribbean Island of Haiti to fight on the French side under the command of the French Admiral the Comte d'Estaing and General Benjamin Lincoln for the Continental Army in the American War of Independence from England in 1779 in Savannah, Georgia.
The largest "all Black regiment" on either side to take part in the American Revolution war. The Regiment was also the first French "all Black regiment" in the history of the French Army.
Although initially successful, the French and Continental Army were driven back by the counterattack of the British Regular reserves commanded by Col John Maitland. The Haitians soldiers were assigned to rearguard the position of American and French forces and credited for saving American and French Allied forces from destruction. My forefathers shed their blood alongside American colonial troops against the British in the Siege of Savannah, Georgia of September 15th to October 20th 1779 for the cause of liberty.
The picture and wording above are from a monument that was constructed in Franklin Square of Savanah, Georgia, USA 230 years later, on October 11, 2009 to honor the Haitian soldiers who gave their lives in the American war for Independence: one of the most significant foreign contributions to the American Revolutionary War that ultimately led to the creation of the United States of America.
Hispaniola was the site of the first European colonies founded by Christopher Columbus on his voyages in 1492 and 1493. Hispaniola is now made up of two countries, Haiti being the first free black republic in the western hemisphere and the Dominican Republic.
Worthy Mentioned # 2 - National Audubon Society
I share the same birth town with Jean-Jacques Audubon born in Les Cayes in the French colony of Saint-Domingue (now Haiti) who migrated to the United States and made significant contribution in the United States to the understanding of bird anatomy and behavior through his field notes.
In 1905, the National Audubon Society was incorporated and named in his honor. I stand on the shoulders of my forefathers to make a positive contribution to our country, the United States of America and more specifically in Maryland.
Worthy Mentioned # 3 - Forefathers helped Free the Black Slaves in South America Taken from Africa
In 1822, My forefathers', the Haitians freedom fighters, willingly joined the Army of Simon Bolivar & liberated modern day 1) Venezuela 2) Colombia 3) Ecuador 4) Peru and 5) Bolivia of South America that Spain were ruling and freed the Black slaves that were taken from Africa.
"Simon Bolivar a native of Venezuela, also known as the Liberator, proclaimed his country independent around 1812, but was later defeated by the troops of Ferdinand VII of Spain and was forced to flee to Jamaica with his companion of arms at the end of 1815.
From there he went to the southern city of Les Cayes, Haiti, "my birth place" where he and his peers were well received by the Haitian General Marion and the population. He later made his way to the Capital of Haiti, Port-au-Prince, where he met with Haitian President, Alexandre Petion who supported his noble causes for independence and nicknamed him "the author for independence in South America".
In the city of Les Cayes, Bolivar received weapons and ammunitions and was even granted the permission to enroll my forefathers, Haitian freedom fighters, who devoted their lives for the noble cause of liberty. President Petion only ask one thing of Bolivar: "to liberate the black slaves taken from Africa in all the countries that he would have liberated from Spain". Bolivar returned to his country ready to put his pledge to Petion into action and began by liberating his own slaves on his plantation of San-Mateo.
However when he proclaimed general freedom for all black slaves, all slave-owners and even his own lieutenants turned against him and was forced again to seek exile in Haiti, this time in the city of Jacmel where he spent six months.
He later returned to South America after many struggles and fierce battles, Bolivar and his army made in part of my forefathers, Haitian freedom fighters, defeated the Spanish Imperial army in Colombia and won that country independence in 1819.
He liberated his country Venezuela, this time for good in 1821 and Ecuador in 1822. As President, he helped the unification of Venezuela, Colombia and Ecuador into the Gran Colombia. He also helped with the liberation of Peru and Bolivia (Upper Peru) which was named after Simon Bolivar, one of South America's greatest liberator."
