Aggressive Expert Strategies to Provide Positive Returns for Opportunity Zones and Investors  
  
The spirit of the Opportunity Zone Fund is to improve economically distressed areas while benefiting investors. The Winter Film Capital Opportunity Fund plans to be strategic and holistic in it approach. This will include taking an evidence-based and aggressive plan to invest in and build the local small business structure, capacity and funding. The Fund originator is from the Opportunity Zones that the Fund will target. Those zones have a history of governmental and business sector neglect since the consolidation of the surrounding cities into one during the late 1960s. Those areas needing revitalization resemble formerly colonized countries. Many countries that have experienced long-term structural and economic issues have benefited from expert organizational support in by way of Technical Assistance Facilities (TAF). We will deploy TAF in a way that will greatly benefit the established zones and investors alike.
