Mar 21, 2011 Judith Rubin Uncategorized Comments Off on The Las Vegas Mob Experience opens at the Tropicana Hotel financed by Strategic Funding of New York City
The Mob Experience is the brainchild of Jay Bloom, a former JP Morgan Chase investment banker and his partner Louis Ventre, another Wall Street veteran. The Experience transports visitors from the days of Murder Incorporated and the Mafia’s national syndicates up to the present day modern metropolis. “We wanted to create a unique experience where visitors could actually feel what it was like to be there,” said Bloom in a recent interview. “We created a highly personalized journey through use of RFID technology enabling visitors to interact with celebrity guide holograms in their native language.” Celebrity guides currently include James Caan, Mickey Rourke, Frank Vincent, Steven Shirripa and Tony Sirico who have all played significant roles in the movies and television shows of this genre and have captured wide recognition.
Creativity in design and development were not the only innovations brought by this team of former Wall Streeters. The financing of this project during one of the most challenging economic times for both the nation and Las Vegas was no small task. Seed money was provided by the partners, friends, family and one time clients of the duo, but as time passed and the budget grew to almost $14 million, Bloom and Ventre turned to Strategic Funding to help them complete the financing. “Strategic provided us with a very unique financing solution that gave us the final $4 million needed to complete the project and launch the company,” said Ventre. “Without their help and creativity, especially in this difficult economy, our completion may have not happened,” he continued.
