My partner and I have a lot of tech startup operational experience, real estate experience, and in the finance world. We're looking for general guidance in navigating the patchwork of state tax incentives, grants, and loans that may be better than what the private market may be able to offer. Also looking to better understand some of the tradeoff of more expensive, clean energy systems in the context of working with the town and state authorities.
Actions I’ve taken so far
Lots of research across the board. Happy to share more in a call
My future goals
To launch multiple sites and to secure good funding from the government to do so.
My motivations to work with a mentor
Better insight into some of the challenges, and to help refine ideas and challenges that our business faces.
About my venture
Hudson Valley Retreats
We are Hudson Valley Retreats, a wellness retreat located at 38 Hudson Lane in the Town of Esopus. We plan to create a tranquil and rejuvenating environment using minimalist Japanese and Nordic design cues. We plan to open our doors for guest stays via short-to-medium term rentals. The goal of our retreat is for guests to connect with themselves, loved ones, and the environment. Our target audience will be working professionals who prioritize wellness, spirituality, and mindfulness.
We plan to feature 40 custom-designed cabins on the property, 2 small wellness facilities, and 3 communal areas. Our goal is to develop at a minimal level, maintaining the beauty of the natural ecosystem, and by doing so, we believe that we can create a special place for guests to connect deeply to those around them and to themselves.
