Robert Ritch is a thief.  He preys on people who want to go into business, have limited resources and are desperate enough to try almost anything to obtain the financing they need.  He does absolutely NOTHING other than take your money.

We had the unfortunate meeting of Mr. Ritch almost a year ago.   We were trying to start a sandwich shop and although Mr. Ritch was recommended by Bill Gaffney, who was recommended through an aquaintance, I had misgivings from the beginning.

Nobody asks for these fees up front.   He asked for a certain amount of money to come down and take a look, and get a feel for what we were trying to do.  He was here all of about 20 minutes, flew in, flew out.  MADE MONEY.  Then he needed some more money wired to him for "due diligence", in addition to the "due diligence" we had given him.  We NEVER saw a thing. [continued below]....
.....  Not one piece of anything once we said we weren't sending him any more money.  He sang the praises of what we were trying to do, said what a great idea, location, this would be NO problem.  He is a LIAR and a THIEF.  He preys on the dreams and desperation of people just trying to get their business off the ground.   Trust me, me the minute you don't give him any more money, he's like a fart in the wind, along with your money.

He will NOT get you financing.  Don't waste what money you have on his BS.  He's a fraud, charlatan, thief and sad human being.  He will talk to you about his family to make you believe he's an okay person.  He is not.  He stole our money.  His rebuttals to his other reports, more BS.  This is how he makes his living, bilking people out of what little bit of money that

Robert has been an absolute blessing to deal with!

AUTHOR: John - ()

Robert has been an absolute blessing to deal with! By far, he's one of the most helpful business people we've ever dealt with. Not only did he help us get a higher return on our money, but he also demonstrated a lot of skill in completing deals. He definitely is well informed and truly wants us to succeed. Without question, he's who we trust. Thanks again!

Rob has funded many deals!

AUTHOR: Tonie - ()

Robert was a hired consultant on a significant global finance and operational transformation initiative. He is a strategic thinker with the unique ability to not just create a strategic vision, but to mobilize and operationalize it as well. He has a deep expertise in the Capital Funding space including finance and operational processes. He was a pleasure to deal with as a consultant - demanding but fair, incredibly hard working and always informative

Robert is a truly exceptional individual!

AUTHOR: Melody - ()

Robert is a truly exceptional individual. Working for Robert opened up a series of business opportunities that I had not imagined and would not have had were it not for the leadership, mentoring, and financial capital that Robert provided. He was always first to lead by example in indentifying and nurturing strong business partnerships. In addition, Robert is a staunch champion for finding small businesses capital funding. Combining both the personality of a champion with the technical expertise of a seasoned professional distinguishes Robert as on of the best leaders for which I have had the priviledge of working with.

Robert Ritch is a great guy

AUTHOR: Nadine - ()

I have worked with Robert on a number of occasions in the past 3 years, both negotiating with companies in which he had an interest and having him work with me and my colleagues to raise funds for other companies. 

Robert is commercially, financially and technically savvy and very quick to spot opportunities and identify and solve problems. 

Personally he is straight forward; he does what he says he is going to and provides straight answers. I would have no hesitation in working with him again
