To Orthogonal friends and shareholders:
Over the past 10 years, Reinmkr Inc. began which has now evolved into Orthogonal Thinker. I’d like to take a moment today to reflect on our journey and share some big news that my partner and I are very excited about. Over the past few weeks Jason and I have been on Maui mapping out our vision for the next decade.
We have updated our cap table to reflect the purchase of Maui Raw; welcoming our new co founder Michelle Valentin. We have set up our new commercial kitchen in Kihei which will be up and running on 1/21/19. Over the next 3 months we will start producing 5000/dips per week to service inner island sales and a Made on Maui product. Our entire team heads to SF this week to start the process of moving forward with a co-packer in California. Our intention is to service CA by 6/21/19.
We have further updated our Cap table with two new strategic advisors Cecil Robles & Lawrence Katzman from Genesys Financial. They will work with Orthogonal on our current equity round and strategic partnerships moving forward. Empowering our Portfolio Companies.
Matt Sonefeldt will be coming on board as our Legacy Advisor in 2019 to work with Orthogonal on our long term vision. His background in our Holding Company structure makes him the perfect fit on navigating our path forward.
We’re planning for 2019 to be Orthogonal’s first year generating an operating profit. Now we should have ample extra cash flow for new bets/growth in 2019.
We will continue to double and triple down on our bets on Meadow. We have participated 3x with a total investment of $171k through Reinmkr/Orthogonal. We have committed another strategic investment into there Series A through a Orthogonal Sub Fund.
Reinmkr/Orthogonal portfolio companies continue to grow and raise massive rounds of funding. Betterment, Vidyard, RideCell, Airbnb, Confident Cannabis, SuryaSpa, Meadow, Talkable, Wefunder and More.
SuryaSpa a incubated Orthogonal company will be the first Ayurvedic Spa in a major hotel chain opening up in 2nd quarter 2019. Two incredible founders Martha & Roger Sofer who are committed to a vision of empowering people’s lives through Pancha Karma & Healthy Living.
Orthoganal’s incubation and investing has slowed down to allow us to focus on the verticals that will allow us to have hyper growth and monetization this year to profitability.
In some ways, our journey at Reinmkr/Orthogonal over the past 10 years is a perfect mix of dumb luck and hard work. Even as we’ve invested and incubated in many great companies the past 10 years. It has taken us the last decade to see our vision of a Socially Conscious Berkshire Hathaway model come together.
In 2018 we went down the road of looking for liquidity through a STO with the idea of compliance and IP running through the blockchain. We still see this on the horizon in the next 12-24 months but we are more interested in laying the correct foundation through operational income before we go out and execute a STO. We believe we should be able to provide dividends before we embark down the road of raising through a STO. We are also clear that Orthogonal’s foundation lays in the culture of the core values Jason and I hold. We believe in honesty Integrity and ethics. There are no shortcuts to building something sustainable. Furthermore we can only partner or have energy exchange with those individuals that believe in Orthogonal’s vision of a better tomorrow.
In the next few weeks Orthogonal will start closing on private subscription agreements on our current round of funding. We have taken it upon ourselves to take the due diligence process of raising funding very seriously with new investors. The energy exchange with the right investors and partners is baseline. We will close our first round of funding by 6/21 and leave our current wefunder page live as we finish our 2018 audit. As of this past Friday we have supplied all necessary financials to the auditor for this past fiscal year.
Here we go into 2019. We promise to deliver you the best products with great founders. We will always look at everything we do at Orthogonal in the up most Integrity. As the biggest investors in Orthogonal/Reinmkr, what happens to me and my family is a direct reflection of what happens to our investors. We are all mirrors of each other and this is what makes this Power-to-the-People initiative so paradigm shifting. We have listened and we know the world is looking for something more than soft drinks, opioids and energy drinks. We promise to deliver.
Please join me in welcoming Michelle Valentin, Cecil Robles, Lawrence Katzman and Matt Sonefeldt to Orthoganal. Frequency of energy is everything.
“THERE is no such thing as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. A hurried mind is an addled mind; it cannot see clearly or hear precisely; it sees what it wants to see, or hears what it is afraid to hear, and misses much. A knight makes time his ally. There is a moment for action, and with a clear mind that moment is obvious”
Best wishes for 2019,
Founder & Executive Chairman
Reinmkr/Orthogonal Thinker Inc.
