As a poor kid, Geraud Staton became an entrepreneur out of necessity, initially selling Blow Pops to the rich kids at school. He's hustled and he's seen how to grow a business, and he wanted to give back. So he started Helius (now Echo) because he wanted to level the playing field when it came to minority and women owned businesses. According to Geraud, "There are too many knowledgeable business people in our community for anyone to not have the skills they need to survive as hard working entrepreneurs." ---Geraud Staton is the CEO of Echo, Coach, Actor and Painter.
