Long: Death Squad Start-ups

by Julia Mezzanine Tranche

Dedicated to providing our readers with the bloody edge of globally diverse venture opportunities, our recent research has revealed that multiple opportunities in the “Death Squad Start Up” business exist. This research supersedes our recent recommendations in the armed piracy sector.

Start up costs are extraordinarily small, given the strength of the U.S. Dollar in the region and the low cost of critical hardware (RPGs, AK-47 models, etc.) many of which are obtainable via salvage efforts at local weapons caches and abandoned armories. Triple digit IRRs with high liquidity are easily obtainable. (Our model shows a 355% IRR in Year 2).

A sample P&L for a typical venture is attached.

    You have wayyy too much time on your hands if you’re putting together spreadsheets like that in your spare time…or are just far more ambitious than I (or, you’re actually making $ from your ‘sponsors’).

    Nice work although I think a few of your line items are far off, and I also question some of your growth rates. I’ll take a full explanation of assumptions, etc on my desk by 9am.
