Known by friends as “Sharky” grew up in Paterson, New Jersey — a tough inner city where hard times, poverty and struggle were everyday realities. Against the odds, with a strong work ethic and determination — his vision for a better life began to take shape. Having a sharp mind for business, he transformed challenges into opportunities. His business acumen led him to create one of the most successful prepaid businesses in the telecom industry. Today, he continues to capitalize on his success. He has an unwavering commitment to support and improve the lives of both his family and the community.
Stavros Vrahnos - Partner
Stavros Vrahnos and his parents immigrated to the United States from a small village in Greece when he was just nine years old. Starting from scratch in Perth Amboy New Jersey, they had to adapt to a new culture, learn a new language, and Stavros watched as his parents worked long hours in factories to realize their dream of home-ownership. Growing up, the example they set inspired him to work hard for dreams of his own. From early employment in restaurants, to work in sales and marketing, he eventually found his calling in entrepreneurship. He opened his own restaurant and later founded a multi-million dollar pre-paid telecom company. Today, the strong family work ethic that led to his success continues. He is committed to founding and building businesses that have a positive impact on the lives of others.
