I’ve never seen this many high powered, successful and well respected businessmen associated with a pink sheet company.
- Loudon Owen
- Ilja Laurs
- Darryl Green
Not to mention the Strategic Partnership with Cycloides, Inc.
ANDI / Utopya Worldwide Holdings Inc is without question, the most legitimate (by far) pinksheet company I have ever seen.
Just a little reality check.
