My name is Marco Terry. I am an entrepreneur, finance expert, and aspiring angel investor who is fully devoted to optimizing business models.
I started my career in the mid 90’s (yes, I am a card-carrying member of Generation X) in Boston. Like many folks in the area, I worked for a technology company. My first job was at a startup that had developed a special relational database system that was optimized to handle scientific and engineering data. Through the job, I worked on projects for NASA, Lockheed Martin, and many other well-known companies. That job eventually transitioned to a job in telecommunications, first on the technical side of things and later in the marketing and product management side of the business.
During this time, I never lost sight of my dream to be an entrepreneur. After 1.5 failed attempts, I finally got it right when I started Commercial Capital LLC. As I learned new things, mostly through trial and error, the company grew and eventually expanded into Canada through Commercial Capital LLC (Canada) and Australia through Commercial Capital LLC (Australia).
Now I work solely to help entrepreneurs who run growing companies but have cash flow problems. Nothing is more rewarding than helping fellow entrepreneurs get through the crunch and grow. This has been the most challenging experience – and the most fun – I have ever had. While I can’t recommend this experience for everyone, it’s certainly been a rewarding path.
In my spare time, I also maintain a glossary of factoring terms. I know, it’s a bit of a boring hobby, but someone has to do it. I am always looking to improve the glossary, so let me know if you have any suggestions.
