Calling for Increased Focus on Entrepreneurs in Technology

August 19, 2016

Philanthropist and entrepreneur Alexei Beltyukov believes that Russia’s future economic growth will depend on how well it can support innovative small businesses and entrepreneurs that invest in technology.

In 2013, Russia’s GDP grew by only 1.4%, far short of the 3.2% predicted in December 2012. The slowing economy persisted into the first quarter of 2013 when growth fell to only 0.8% and the ruble lost 9% of its value against the dollar. As the economy continues to shift away from the popular trends of the 20th century, inflexible industries will naturally struggle against the rapidly changing landscape created by the marvels of 21st century technology.

At the forefront of their new high-tech economy is the Skolkovo Innovation Center located just outside Moscow. Since 2010, it has become a hub for new businesses specializing in the use of information, biomedical, nuclear, energy-efficient, or space-based telecommunication technologies. Much of this development is thanks to the management and support of the Skolkovo Foundation, which offers consultation and financial services to new Russian businesses interested in high-tech industries. The Skolkovo Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 2010 at the behest of then president Dmitry Medvedev in order to oversee development of the center.

As Senior Vice-president for Business Development and Commercialization, Alexei Beltyukov oversaw the explosive growth of the foundation during its initial set-up. In addition to managing the development of the Skolkovo Innovation Center, the foundation also provides grant money to new businesses who must apply through a computerized application system specially designed with corruption avoidance technology.  Read more about Alexei on XRepublic, and be sure to follow him on Angel.co for more information.

WEN by Chaz Adds Dazzle and Shine To Blogger’s Limp, Sad hair

August 18, 2016

Blogger Emily McClure is like a lot of us; she is hair-challenged. In other words, her fine, thin hair is not her crowning glory, and she really wants beautiful Hollywood hair. So, she decided to turn to the no lather shampoo brand Wen by Chaz, because the famous LA stylist has a major celeb clientele.
Emily embarked on a 7-day hair journey using only WEN’s cleansing conditioner. She even kept a daily hair journal with hair photos to chart her progress. She reported this to Bustle.

Chaz Dean’s loyal clients love his no lather system, because his cleansing conditioners are full of good stuff, like plant-based botanicals that nourish and soothe any type of hair in any condition. Hair looks smoother, bigger, shiner and with beautiful movement and all of that via one bottle that cleans, conditions, de-tangles, deep conditions and so forth. It’s pretty amazing. Chaz sells Wen products online on Amazon and at high end cosmetic stores including Sephora.

Emily chose the FIG cleansing conditioner to add moisture and extra body to her medium length hair and hit the shower. Suddenly, her hair seemed to swell in thickness and smoothed away the roughness. After she emerged with wet hair, she proceeded to blow-dry and style her hair. If you take a look at her selfies, you will see great-looking, big hair. Even Emily’s friends wanted to know her shiny new secret.

To achieve WEN by Chaz hair excellence, Emily had these simple tips:

1. Always wash daily, and preferably with a morning wash.

2. Use enough product to thoroughly massage the hair and scalp with. Read bottle directions.

3. Use time and effort with WEN by Chaz. That means always follow up with a good blow-dry and styling session with your favorite hair tools.

4. Stick to the routine, so your hair can get used to this unique no shampoo method.

SEC Whistleblower Program, the Advocates, and Enforcers

D3
August 15, 2016

The enforcement of financial regulations in the United States was completely overhauled in the year 2010 when Congress passed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Radical changes were effected to the regulations, a phenomenon that nobody could have earlier envisaged. Individual citizens now have the power to report any violations of the federal security laws to the Security Exchange Commission (SEC). It was the culmination of the Whistleblower program which afforded employment protection and financial motivation to would-be whistleblowers. http://www.secwhistlebloweradvocate.com/program/program-overview

The Labaton Sucharow law firm was among the pioneer firms that took advantage of this Act to enforce the SEC regulations. The firm started a practice that was specifically centered on protecting and advocating for the rights of the whistleblowers. It had a securities litigation platform, the Whistleblower Representation Practice, which comprised a team of investigators, forensic accountants and financial analysts with experience in matters of federal and state law enforcement in protecting the rights of the whistleblowers. Among the leading lights was Jordan A. Thomas who was instrumental in the formulation and development of the whistleblower program. He was part and parcel of the team that drafted the proposed legislation including the final implementation rules. This positioned him as an advocate as well as an enforcer of the Act.

In the Act, whistleblowers are entitled to payments of between 10%-30% of the money collected as a consequence of a successful SEC enforcement action and one which exceeds the $1 million threshold. There is also a provision of additional awards in relation to money that is collected and brought by other regulatory and enforcement organizations or groups. These incentives have the element of motivating individuals to report such violations and at the same time preventing would-be violators from such actions. It also has the provision of protecting the whistleblower from the retaliatory actions of his/her employer when such violations are reported in line with the prescribed rules and regulations. Anonymous reporting is allowed under the representation of an attorney.

For inquiries about the program, an individual should contact the Whistleblower Representation Team to request for a case evaluation by using the team’s website, email or through a telephone call. The consultations are free of charge. It is also recommended that an individual should not divulge any identifying or personal information or the names of the violators at the initial stages of the consultations.

August 10, 2016

I don’t like to speak for people, but I’m going to here for a second: If I was Sam Tabar, I would be extremely proud of all that I had accomplished. I would be proud because I know everything I did was worth doing and I did it the right way. Sam is one of those guys that works around the clock and has a tireless work ethic.

As of this moment, Sam Tabar is an attorney and capital strategist. He resides in the great state of New York, which is not an easy place to make it, that is for sure. However, if anyone is up for the challenge it is Sam. Upon graduating from Columbia Business School, he found work at Skadden, Arps, Slater, Meagher & Flom LLP as an Associate. It doesn’t take him long to find work, keep work, and expand his ever-growing resume, which includes places such as PMA Investment Advisors, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, and Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP to name a few.

Sam has always been able to fit in everywhere he goes thanks to his personality and the way he conducts himself. He is a true professional in every sense of the word. He is the kind of guy that looks you in the eye, shakes your hand, and backs up what he says. If there is a deadline or something that needs to be done, he goes out and does it. He isn’t a big believer in excuses or coming in second place. He wants to come in first. He is aggressive but in a good way. He knows that no matter what he is doing, he needs to do it right or he needs to complete it a certain way. It is safe to say that even though Sam Tabar has accomplished a lot and has a lot to proud of, the best is yet to come.  Be sure to follow Sam on Twitter @SamirTabar.

August 4, 2016

If there is one thing that can increase the liveliness of a business on both the customer and the provider’s side, it is incentive. Organo Gold has recently set up a rewards program for distributors and loyal customers. This rewards program was set up by Bernardo Chua as a strategic business tool. This is meant to expand the business as well as bring forth a lot of new customers and products. As a result, Organo Gold will expand as a business and more people will get to experience the health benefits of ganoderma, an ancient herb from Asia.

Organo Gold is the creation of Bernardo Chua. Bernardo is from the Philippines. He has discovered the healthy effects of the use of ganoderma. He has held the desire of bringing this herb to other parts of the world. One method that he has realized was effective was putting it into coffee. As a result, his company Organo Gold has taken off. He is therefore able to bring about a healthier life to people who have yet to experience the health benefits of this herb. Since it is included in the great tasting beverage, people are more likely to consume it.

Bernardo Chua has a great talent for business. As a result, he was able to successfully expand his business so that he can bring his coffee out to others. Among the most significant moves he has made was the expansion to Turkey, which was the home of the first coffeehouse.

There is a New Growth Mindset Kid in The Block

July 17, 2016

Don’t confuse Mojo and Katie with Pixar’s “Inside Out” characters. The two are stars in an animated cast by ClassDojo made with an aim to assist parents, teachers, and students learn more about the “growth mindset”. ClassDojo, a startup based in San Francisco is set to release five animated clips starting with the one featuring Mojo and Katie and the other four accompanied with a parents and teachers guide, to be released a week apart on ClassDojo website “Big Ideas” and on YouTube.

 

The clips emphasize the idea that intelligence and abilities can be developed with time even if one is born without them. ClassDojo has teamed up with Stanford University’s PERTS; which is a group studying motivation and resilience in students in creating these videos. According to the group’s executive director, Dave Paunesku PERTS is very excited to work with ClassDojo due to the high number of teachers working with ClassDojo hence it will be easier to reach more students who are the group’s main target.

 

Chief Product Officer of ClassDojo Liam Don also seconds the belief that his firm has the right channel for spreading the good ideas in education that have not been receiving the attention they deserve given 1 in 2 of U.S. classrooms are their users. Another person who has been vocal on the “growth mindset” is Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck. Carol has widely spoken and written on the issue and has even given ideas how adults can be able to impart this knowledge to children.

 

Paunesku says that PERTS has been focusing their outreach efforts on teacher and parents and have not done animated clips before. But they have now started focusing on children intervention and have started by partnering with City Year and Khan Academy. The group’s main goals is to change the assumption around building and growth mindset where people believe that it is only about hard work and efforts and forget that there are ways of strategizing the efforts .

 

PERTS also has an online toolkit with lesson plans and exercises guiding parents and teachers on how they can introduce the growth mindset activities to children and students. Some of these strategies will also be available in the animated videos by ClassDojo. Paunesku and his colleagues will also be visiting teachers before and after they watch the videos and answer their questions. They will also collect data on teacher practices and how they influence the mindset and engagement of students.
Don says that ClassDojo is so proud to have availed this service to students and their teachers for free. This is also the first time the company is using its platform as a channel to distribute its contents.
