Why Have Venture Capital Firms Taken An Interest In Adam Goldenberg’s Company JustFab?

Adam Goldenberg and his friend Don Ressler, co-founders of JustFab have had the business and fashion community talking. This company has brought something unique to both social media and fashion shopping, a fun platform that includes monthly subscriptions and VIP memberships with credits for shopping. JustFab was started as a women’s style brand, but it has since started a men’s branch, founded sister companies in Fabletics and FL2, and now acquired Fabshoes. JustFab also has local stores in various locations, and with the rave about this company, it’s no wonder venture capital investors on Bloomberg such as Josh Hannah of Matrix Partners and many others are funding JustFab. So far JustFab has received over $300 million in venture capital funds.

Before Adam Goldenberg co-founded JustFab, he was working for the company that started up MySpace, Intermix Media. Goldenberg was only 15 when he turned his first business idea into a website company called Gamer’s Alliance, a network that connected gamers to various niche sites. Intermix Media bought this company out and made Goldenberg a part of their team, seeing a potential business leader at matrixpartners.com that could help the company out tremendously. They were right. At only 20, Goldenberg had already become Chief Operating Officer, and soon he was working with Don Ressler, a new friend he had met who had also started up his own business that Intermix bought. The two built a series of advertising companies under Intermix Media that would help bring profits in.

In 2005, Goldenberg and Ressler decided to leave Intermix Media after News Corp took over. While they had made many friends there, they felt it was in their best interest to start up their own companies. Even with limited resources, Goldenberg and Ressler started direct selling various beauty products and cosmetics, building an incubator company called Intelligent Beauty. In 2010, they decided to try out the fashion industry and launched JustFab.

The company’s concept was novel at the outset, but word got around that a new fashion outlet was going to spring up online, so many people took interest in it. Kimora Lee Simmons, a famous fashion model took particular interest in this cheaper fashion company and the subscription and social media platforms involved, and she brought over many twitter followers to JustFab. Soon, Kate Hudson and her brother Oliver were also taking an interest and soon endorsed the company. JustFab has been valuate at over $1 billion recently, and looks to continue being a disrupter in the fashion world.

Securus Technologies Responds to GTL Claims

When you are a leader in your field and at the top of your game, competitors will do what they can to damage your brand. This is true with Securus Technologies and their competitor, Global Tel Link. GTL recently released a press release stating many issues they had with Securus Technologies. That press release prompted a response from Securus Technologies to set the record straight.

 

One of the main issues that GTL referenced has to do with a dispute about patent #816. GTL claims that the court has ruled on this patent and Secures Technologies is not able to use this patent for anything they create. Securus Technologies responded saying that no such declaration has been made on this patent and a ruling will not be made for a long time. The court process generally takes a long period of time and it is rare to be resolved quickly.

 

Another issue brought up by GTL was that Securus was always quick to head to court with someone they have a disagreement with. Securus Technologies fought back hard on this one say that time spent in court is expensive and is a long process. They do everything they can to prevent having to go to court. They said they have every right to defend themselves when attacked and try to resolve any matter out of court first.

 

Securus Technologies has been in business for thirty years. They are a leader in their field and work will over 3,400 corrections facilities and law enforcement agencies all over North America. They are located in Dallas, Texas, and are constantly trying to advance the technologies that are used in these facilities. This is a tough industry to be in but they are making a name for themselves day after day.

Those UK Merchants and Vintners

There are a great number of exceptional and well respected UK VINTNERS to choose from. In fact, by merely typing in the words UK VINTNERS…..one may indeed find quite a bit to choose from. UK VINTNERS are many and have much to offer in taste and selection as a whole.

To list but a few out of the many, many which are out there, we have: THE WORSHIPFUL COMPANY OF VINTNERS, UKV PLC, THE VINTNERS COMPANY, SOCIETY OF VINTNERS, MERCHANT VINTNERS, YORKSHIRE VINTNERS, and UK VINTNERS OF LONDON. These are all well respected and trusted UK-based vintners in their area, serving and giving the best that they have to offer……each and every one in its own unique and special way. No two are alike.

To quote a bit of useful and quite interesting background information on one such company listed above, I begin:

“The Vintners’ Company’s ownership of swans, shared with the Crown and the Dyer’s Company, is well known and the historic ceremony of ‘Swan Upping’, the annual census of the swan population, takes place in July on certain stretches of the river Thames.The wonderful facilities of Vintners’….”

Learn more about the history of The Vintners Company here.

This appears to be a very quality loving and well prepared business and company/web site as a whole. UK Vintners are very knowledgeable and well versed in the business and sale of wines, staying on top of the market. They offer a large variety of fine wines to choose from, as well as many numerous pictures on their web site.

We also have the special SOCIETY OF VINTNERS, which has caught my eye in a very unique way. For one, this society was founded upon and originally begun by a group of five men back in the early 1970s. They had a vision and a desire to purchase and sell wine in attempts to beat the market place competition at the time, and to truly stand out from the crowd….as they say. Their methods were simple, and their talents plus planning were not in the least uncoordinated. With time, they have grown to become the pillar in UK VINTNERS which they are today….and are not planning on backing down from that any time soon. Wherever there is growth, potential, and success—be it few or much—–there is always room for more. This company of vintners seems to be headed in that direction.

Bruce Levenson Sells the Atlanta Hawks

Bruce Levenson is one of the most respected businessmen in the United States. Last year, he decided to sell the Atlanta Hawks basketball team, together with the operating rights to the Philips Arena. To make the transaction successful, Levenson had to hire reliable banking institutions. He chose the Goldman Sachs and Circle Sports.

Several months later, the two banks announced that the Hawks had been sold successfully. Antony Ressler is the leader of the group that acquired the basketball team. However, Forbes reports indicate that the price the team was sold is lower than what the banks had promised Bruce Levenson. Before the transaction, Goldman Sachs had promised the businessman that he would get one billion for the team and the operating rights to the Philips Arena.

After the sale had been completed, it was clear that the bankers failed to deliver the amount they had promised the businessman and the rest of the former Hawks team owns. Antony Ressler paid seven hundred and thirty dollars for the team and the Philips Arena. The bankers said that this was the highest bid. Bruce Levenson and his group were expecting a higher amount.

Experts in the sporting industry, however, did not agree with the first promises made by the bankers. These professionals have enough experience, and they warned that the one billion price was extremely high for the consumers to purchase the team. One of them said that the team was only capable of attracting nine hundred million dollars. One sports economist, Andrew Zimbalist predicted that the team would be sold for less than seven hundred and fifty million dollars. Although the bankers did not take his advice seriously, it turned out to be the correct one.

Bruce Levenson, however, made a huge profit from the sale of the Hawks. However, experts and economists in the sports industry say that the team was oversold, and a lot of money was lost at the bidding table.

Nathaniel Ru Brings Healthy Food To His Customers

Living a healthy life means being conscious of many factors. One of the most important is what people choose to eat. The right kind of diet can really make a difference. This is something that Nathaniel Ru, one of the founders of the healthy fast food chain Sweetgreen really understands. As he talks about in a recent article for the Georgetown University newspaper, he knew that he wanted to bring something very special to the table for his customers to enjoy when he started the chain that has become one of the nation’s most respected. His aim was to look for ways to use the small space that he and his fellow investors had chosen. This helped them discover that fresh really was the best way to go. Fresh ingredients allow the chain to make sure that all dishes they serve are healthy and well prepared for their client base.

 

Bonding Over A Love Of Healthy Food

Ru, a graduate of Georgetown, first came to the idea of creating a place where healthy food would be served when he was studying here. His idea came to him as he started to think about the ways that he could create a space that could offer such food in an easy to find manner. He also wanted to offer something that was special and unique. This is where he started to dream about the kind of space that would be right to help bring healthy foods like salads to people all over the world. He realized that he had limited options in the area to find such delicious food that would also be healthy. He and his partners realized they could create a fast casual space that allowed people to get such foods and get them quickly.

 

Tough Going

At first it was tough going. He and his partners had started small and weren’t sure where they could go. But it gradually came time to connect with others as the business began to attract notice. This is when he began to realize the power that he could bring to the table and reach out to others to show them how to embrace a healthy lifestyle with food that would help fuel their day. He and his partners gradually started to see Sweetgreen take off as more people discovered the space. Since that time, he sees the company continuing to expand ever higher.

Boost Your Reputation With A Wikipedia Page

The Brangelina divorce has had some unintended consequences for fellow actress Marion Cotillard. Her Wikipedia page has been ravaged by angry trolls who blame her for being the culprit behind the split of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. One edit changed her occupation from actress to being the reason why Brad and Angelina filed for divorce. Another edit later on, listed her occupation as a cheater along with actress and singer.

The attack on Marion Cotillard’s Wikipedia page shows that nobody is immune to their attacks on their reputation on the web. Wikipedia revisions that slandered Marion Cotillard have been removed since, but their effects are being felt and shared.

If your page contains positive content it can also be one more page that showcases the good of your business. Don’t underestimate the effect of Wikipedia page creation. It can establish credibility to your name, help your drown out negative press and reviews and increase trust among consumers.

One of the reason’s why Wikipedia has such a strong reputation for being factual and credible is the rules and regulations for Wikipedia entries. There must be sources to any material. The information must also be accurate and fact based with no spin to try and distort any negative information. For this reason Wikipedia is trusted and viewed by millions of people.

Wen By Chaz Shows Change Has Come To The Beauty Industry

Change has been coming to the beauty industry for a number of years with a greater concern shown by consumers over what they use on their hair and faces, and how long each step in their hair care routine takes. The use of naturally derived products is on the rise across the beauty industry, but the rise has been most marked in the hair care industry where women are now looking for results and efficiency in getting the best out of their own hair in the fastest way possible.

 

The pace at which we all live our lives in the 21st century has been on the mind of celebrity hair care specialist Chaz Dean for a number of years after he looked to develop a range of hair care products that would make life easier for women around the world. The creation of his WEN Hair By Chaz line includes a cleansing conditioner that takes the place of five products commonly used by women in their daily routine from shampooing to protecting the hair during the straightening process. He sells his creations on eBay and other online stores.

 

Chaz Dean began his career as a photographer, but quickly found himself drawn to working in other areas of the fashion industry and eventually completed his training as a hair stylist. The success Chaz Dean has developed over the years has allowed him to fulfill his dream of creating his own hair care line devoted to making life easier for women of all ages.

 

Balancing the moisture levels in the hair has been one of the major areas of concern for women in 2016 as they seek out the best options for keeping a healthy shine to their hair. Gently cleansing the hair is also an area of growth as are products that protect the hair from breakage and damage long into the future. For more information, visit the product’s Wikipedia page.
