Who Founded BIGCT? Who is Funding the Project? What Motivated this Mission?

My name is Kathleen Crispino. I am a faith driven Wife, Mom and StepMom and Grandmother of a Family of soon to be 22. I am an Entrepreneur, Solutions Architect, Visionary, Business Woman, Former Small Business Owner Schooled and Experienced in Business Development and Marketing.

The journey began in March of 2018 and has continued to develop with the Expertise, Support and In-Kind Sponsorship of The Superior Network of Companies (serving CT for 51 years) and a Growing Core Team of Professional Volunteers and their generous In-Kind Business and NonProfit Sponsorship (see above logos representing our very generous Volunteers and In-Kind Sponsors).

I'm still not sure why I was chosen for this mission. But what was undenighable was that the vision is clear and the end result complete. Exactly how I was to get there has become a journey of faith on so many levels. BIGCT.BIZ is an incorruptible Solutions Platform using cutting edge Blockchain Technology.

In June of 2018 former Governor Malloy approved a committee being put together to research the potential of blockchain for Connecticut. No need for that. With the expertise of Fitzner Blockchain Consulting as Lead Technology Development Manager for BIGCT.BIZ - We are about to show our leaders exactly what Blockchain Technology can do to help Business and Our Economy grow. Blockchain Technology will assure that your Personal Information remains secure, our platform remains transparent and incorruptible and our Data the invaluable means of helping Connecticut find solutions for many of our toughest issues.

So many of us love it here, but there is hopelessness and frustration that is painfully present across Connecticut... predominantly amongst struggling small to medium business owners, a vast number of schools and smaller NonProfits that have recently seen their funding cut; some in half.

We have a fiscal crisis in Connecticut that is getting worse by the day. We have a decline in youth that want to stay in, or come to live in Connecticut. We have an aging population that is moving South seeking lower taxes and warmer weather. The Time is Now.
IT IS TIME FOR THE PEOPLE THAT BUILT THIS STATE TO BAND TOGETHER AND SAVE IT.

ABSOLUTELY EVERY GREAT IDEA STARTS WITH BELIEVING THAT ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WHEN WE ARE ALL WORKING TOWARDS THE SAME GOALS; PROSPERITY, OPPORTUNITY, & SECURITY FOR OURSELVES, BUSINESSES, EMPLOYEES, CHILDREN, AND COMMUNITY.

What is the #1 Problem for Connecticut's Small Businesses, Community Organizations and Non-Profits? BIGCT Has a SOLUTION!

PROBLEM # 1

The number one issue for Connecticut Small Businesses, Community Organizations and Non-Profits (Besides Taxes and Cuts in Funding) is that NO ONE IS LISTENING! And in Micro Groups - the vast majority of Serious and/or Industry Specific Problems never see the light of day. We have official elections every 2 to 4 years, however your Voice, and Your Business, Community Organizations and NonProfit Issues are being drowned out by the general electorate, politicians and media - many of whom understand little about how business growth and the economy actually work.

Unfortunately this leads to partisan politics, unrealistic promises and NO ACTUAL SOLUTION. Too often WE THE PEOPLE that own the businesses and/or run the organizations that drive the economy and/or care for the most vulnerable in our communities are so busy working... we are often unaware of proposed legislation until it's too late. We become blindsided by taxes, regulations, new laws and obstacles that are eating away at our bottom line and our ability to effectively run our businesses, never mind grow them. All that said, if the businesses and their employees are not doing well, neither do the NonProfit Organizations and the communities they support.

The well being of Connecticut's families, communities and Our State's Fiscal Stability relies predominantly on the passion and hard work of Connecticut's Small to Medium Business Owners that that are keeping Connecticut's people employed, family's fed, and pay the largest percentage of taxes that fund our Government.

As the Founder of BIGCT.BIZ, I have yet to meet with a single business owner that did mention that they "are leaving, will be leaving, or wish they could leave Connecticut. The Business Innovation Gateway has a SOLUTION for the People of Connecticut - Not for Profit! Register for FREE Today and Join Our 2020 SOLUTION REVOLUTION!!
