The Rocco Forino Show

Rocco Forino interviews the most influential high achievers who made it to the top of their respective industries as well as rising entrepreneurs, champions and talent who are on their way. We discuss entrepreneurs’ current struggles and sticking points and seek solutions from the achievers who made it to greatness from similar starting points in their careers. With the Passing of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, entrepreneurs in high poverty communities will have access to investment capital like no other time in American history. Investors will receive substantial tax incentives to reinvest their money into America’s poorest communities A.K.A (Opportunity Zones) by investing in entrepreneurs, businesses and property to redevelop high poverty communities into thriving economic hubs.  Rocco’s goal is to use all the resources at his disposal to act as the connection point between the wealthy investors who want to make a positive impact on the rising stars who want to learn and need the capital to succeed.
