Company description

Leading the way and changing the landscape of telecommunications is a relatively unknown company named PortalVia. PortalVia, Inc., founded in 2000 and incorporated in California in 2001 was personally underwritten by CEO and Senior Radio Frequency Engineer, Bill Blair. Mr. Blair's expertise stems from his prior military experience in the United Stated Air Force as a Satellite Communications Specialist.

Mr. Blair received two patents last year (the first, for the T3iple Play (#61/347,363), internet, tv and phone services thru 1 system; and the second for the SkyLamp (#US 2007/0081478 A1), a wireless transceiver to be deployed on streetlights for distribution of true triple play services. PortalVia, Inc. partnered with Equinix, in El Segundo, CA, for collocation facilities, Cogent and Towerstream for bandwidth capacity.

PortalVia, receiving almost no exposure or credit for the triple play, which owner Bill Blair conceived, continues to make progress, but, struggles to raise financing through the traditional avenues, like banks and venture capitalists. Mr. Blair, at the helm of PortalVia, with Rick Freeman, CTO, DJ Pooh and DaBomb records' (known for producing rap artists like Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, King T, Threat and movies such as "Fridays," "3-Strikes" and others) V.P., work to establish the world's first social business network hub, IO SBN Hub, located at 11540 Hawthorne Blvd., Unit C, Hawthorne, Ca, 90250, which will sell and display PortalVia's products.

PortalVia, while reorganizing, continues to build its 5G Wireless T3iple Play Network and seeks financing via private investors. Details may be obtained from the PortalVia website (www.PortalVia.net). PortalVia, while privately held, is perfectly poised for the public with patented technology, coupled with the fact Bill Blair, CEO and founder personally underwrote the company with 100 Million common stock (PLVA) authorized for issuance, none outstanding and 7 Million Preferred (PLVAP) shares authorized for issuance, 6 million outstanding, with Mr. Blair retaining the majority of ownership in the company.

Mr. Blar has been successful in re-establishing private and secondary markets for PortalVia and other small entities who similarly struggle to raise financing for their establishments. In economies, such as these, business owners must be creative and savvy to raise capital in this tight market. Mr. Blair, a veteran, does notice certain avenues not available for minorities, such as traditional banks and other financial institutions. Most minorities do not have excellent credit scores, necessary for traditional financing of businesses, but, there are times when intellectual properties or simply a good idea is worthy of funding. These avenues are virtually null and void to minority entrepreneurs. A recent report headlined, VCs are not investing in black entrepreneurs. Mr. Blair shares this view. Holding two patents in what has been quoted as the most successful marketing campaign in history, triple play, Mr. Blair now turns to the public for support.
