Management Commentary

Mr. Corey Mangold, CEO of Orchid Ventures commented, “I am really proud of what our team was able to accomplish during a very trying year. The lack of access to capital, the fundamental shift in our business model, and the pandemic made for a very challenging year so far. Though revenues are lower than we would like in Q3, our focus was spent on getting new technology platforms ready for launch, and completing a private placement to secure financing for growth. We proved that the shift was beneficial, but we lacked the necessary capital during the first three quarters of 2021 to achieve a consistent growth trajectory. Now that we have properly financed the Company and have the necessary funds to invest in sales and marketing, we are keenly focused on growth initiatives to further advance the benefits of the strategic shift in our business and ultimately drive shareholder value.”
