NEW YORK -- It’s a fact. Nine out of 10 new businesses will ultimately fail. On Start-Up Junkies, MOJO HD’s newest hi-def financial series, an all-star team of serial entrepreneurs is determined to beat the odds. Start-Up Junkies airs Thursday nights beginning January 24 at 10:00pm, ET/PT. The series is also part of a new programming block every Thursday entitled MOJO Money Night, partnered with two original MOJO HD series about financial investors and venture capitalists; Wall Street Warriors and Bobby G: Adventure Capitalist.

For some entrepreneurs, there’s no greater high than launching a new company and nurturing it through all stages of development. Over the course of eight half-hour episodes, MOJO HD follows a group of these passion-motivated “addicts” in this compelling personality-driven series that demonstrates the highs and lows of getting an organization off the ground with the ultimate goal of selling it for a ridiculous amount of money.

Start-Up Junkies, filmed over a nine-month period, focuses on the recently established Seattle-based company Earth Class Mail™, a global service that delivers postal mail online, much like an electronic post office box. The service is especially useful for people who travel extensively, whether they’re military personnel, RV users or corporate executives. This start-up has generated so much buzz in the venture capital world that it attracted the largest venture capital fund in the Pacific Northwest to invest and broke the all-time record for raising money from the world’s largest group of “angel” investors. The players immersed in the company’s development include charismatic founder and CEO Ron Wiener, who claims to have launched five previous start-ups, loves to fly planes and unabashedly declares the company’s goal of “redefining the trillion-dollar postal industry, collectively the largest employer in the world.”
