About Us


Based in Austin, Texas, Silent Rich was built on years of privately introducing key decision-makers and witnessing the incredible growth that results from having the right connections motivated to help. Silent Rich is a community, weekly email, and directory platform designed to help answer the question, “Who can help solve this challenge and what will motivate them to do so?”

Founded by Jack Colton, a seasoned entrepreneur with a proven track record of facilitating introductions that have led to multi-million dollar mergers, acquisitions, strategic partnerships, and successfully exiting his own Las Vegas tourism company to a private equity firm, Silent Rich is dedicated to creating innovative tools and processes that help companies grow and succeed through the power of connections.

Promote Your Goals and Incentivize Others To Assist

Silent Rich is a first-of-its-kind community that is dedicated to specific asks, requests, and offers to and from a discerning audience. Our weekly newsletter and comprehensive directories are designed to help you find your next big deal, investor, or strategic partnership. These directories feature clear, detailed listings of investment firm criteria, investment opportunities and direct asks from businesses seeking growth capital or strategic alliances.

For private equity firms and investors, Silent Rich provides the unique advantage of broadcasting exactly what you are looking for. Whether it’s specific types of investment opportunities, strategic partnerships, or particular industry sectors, you can clearly outline your needs. Additionally, you have the option to incentivize connectors to help you find the perfect matches.

This transparent and proactive approach helps save time by filtering out irrelevant pitches, ensuring that only the right opportunities reach you. This way, the right people know exactly what to reach out to you about, maximizing the potential for meaningful connections and successful outcomes. With a weekly newsletter reaching over 10,000 executives, startup founders, investors, and potential strategic partners, Silent Rich offers updates on key asks, exclusive events, and valuable connections.

Mobilize an Army of Connectors

When you feature your firm or business on Silent Rich, you can add a specific “ask” in your profile that details exactly what you’re looking for, as well as an “incentive offer” to motivate others to help find what you need. You set the terms, the requirements, and ultimately any agreement or payment with them directly.

This approach turbocharges the number of people actively working to help you succeed, while ensuring that you maintain complete control over your processes and comply with all relevant regulations. By leveraging our network of connectors, you can reach your strategic goals faster and with people you otherwise would have never accessed.

Legally Incentivizing Connectors

Under SEC safe harbor laws, incentivizing connectors who are not dealer-brokers is permitted as long as their role is limited to introductions and providing general information. In addition to any specific requirements you may have, you have the flexibility to specify in your offer terms whether a connector must be a licensed dealer-broker. This ensures you maintain control and compliance in every aspect of your engagement.

Per our policy and the terms you set directly in your incentive offers, unlicensed connectors must operate within clearly defined boundaries to ensure compliance with SEC regulations. Unless licensed as dealer-brokers, connectors may only provide introductions and general information but not engage in the negotiation, execution, or facilitation of securities transactions. Any securities transactions or specific investment advice must be handled by licensed professionals.

Silent Rich is not a registered broker-dealer and does not provide investment advice or facilitate securities transactions. Our services are limited to making introductions and sharing general information about opportunities. Members and clients are responsible for conducting their own due diligence and seeking appropriate professional advice before engaging in any transactions.
