Recently, Gottlieb launched his new firm, Altium, a health care oriented investment firm which is focused on investment opportunities relating to the growth of companies in the healthcare sector. Altium invested its capital in some health industries which include, Oragenics, Oramed Pharmaceuticals (ORMP), and Amarin Corporation (AMRN).

Besides a successful career, Gottlieb has shown remarkable efforts in philanthropic events. He has been donating his time and resources to organizations which assists vulnerable and underserved members in the community.

It’s been said that all financial innovation is reducible to new ways of packaging, repackaging and selling debt. Similarly, it could be said that all central banking policies may simply amount to new ways of kicking the can of financial reckoning down the road and then selling it to the public as some sort of ingenious solution to an intractable problem.

Shervin Pishevar would probably argue in favor of the latter position. Shervin Pishevar is one of the most influential figures in the world of tech finance. He is the founder and president of Investment company, a venture financing company that has been behind the creation of some of the most important ventures in the technology sector. Companies that Investment company has been instrumental in the creation of include Virgin Hyperloop, Uber and Airbnb. Additionally, Shervin Pishevar himself has been behind the creation of a large number of tech companies, including Social Gaming Network, WebOS and Ionside.

But Shervin Pishevar may be best known for the many insights that he shares with the world via his Twitter feed. With more than 100,000 followers, Shervin Pishevar has the eyes of some of the top thought leaders and influencers in the nation. Therefore, his many opinions often carry serious weight among the technological elite.

Recently, Shervin Pishevar discussed the use and overuse of quantitative easing by the nation’s central bank. The Federal Reserve has embarked on a program of purchasing treasury securities with money created from thin air over the last decade. This program, in conjunction with the lowering of interest rates, has flooded the market with cheap credit. It has also enabled the government to continue running massive deficits.

While quantitative easing has succeeded in spurring on one of the longest bull markets in the history of the stock market, Pishevar warns that it is quickly reaching its limits. Eventually, says Pishevar, even the credit of the United States will be downgraded to junk in the eyes of the world’s bond buyers if they fear that the country will need to sharply devalue its currency in order to make good on its obligations.

Guilherme Paulus has continued to invest in the Brazilian tourism industry, despite his massive success and wealth that he has acquired over the years doing the same.

Paulus has been in the industry for more than four decades, and during this time he has been able to start and grow them into extremely successful companies that today employ thousands of Brazilians and offers services to millions. His first venture in the industry came after he left employment at Casa Faro in 1972 to start CVC Brasil Operadora e Agência de Viagens S.A. The company had been an idea of his partner who he had met during one of his work-related travels. They would soon strike a rapport that saw them decide to come together and start the travel agency.

Guilherme Paulus was relatively young only 24 then, and he did not have the money to invest directly into the business. He was given the option of offering his expertise into the venture in exchange for a percentage. This was an agreement that he could with, and it did not take long for his partner to leave bestowing the entire operation on him. In the years that followed, the businessman would work to get the company off the ground. The first nine years were quite difficult, but would change when he got an opportunity to bid for a job that involved taking Mercedes employees on their annual tour. His cost-cutting measures would make him the lowest bidder, and he was awarded the job, to this day Guilherme Paulus credits this job for the breakthroughs that followed. He had discovered corporate clients through that single opportunity and moved with speed to pitch to others. The company was eventually able to return a profit, and by this time its portfolio of services had grown significantly.

Guilherme was able to use the proceeds of this venture to start GJP. This company runs a network of hotels located strategically all over Brazil. When he sold a majority share of CVC to a private equity group, he pumped the money into it, and today the group has assets valued at more than 600 million dollars.

GreenSky, created by serial entrepreneur David Zalik in 2006 in Atlanta, Georgia, is a financial services business that brings together lending financial institutions with applicants who need financing. Instead of directly providing loans to its customers, GreenSky connects applicants to roughly 13,000 financial institutions across the United States that are all prepared to provide funding to potential customers.

How does GreenSky provide funding to consumers?

In business, especially corporate business, corporations like GreenSky – any corporation, for that matter, regularly takes on millions or billions of financing to ramp up its operations. Even though consumer debt is generally frowned upon, corporate debt is actually good for businesses to take on.

While lenders generally pile on debt so they can later chunk out such debt in smaller portions at higher interest rates in hopes of turning profits. GreenSky doesn’t utilize this strategy through GreenSky Credit; instead, GreenSky Credit is simply a platform to connect applicants who are willing to become debtors with financial institutions that are ready to make loans to applicants who fit such lenders’ bills of prime candidates to receive financing.

How does GreenSky Credit generate income, then?

The total dollar value of money that passes through GreenSky’s hands is in the billions of dollars; and not just one or two billion, but hundreds of billions of dollars.

GreenSky Credit generates income by assessing two fees – one from the consumer and another from the lender. Thanks to GreenSky’s strategy, it can double-dip on the amount of money it makes from its services.

Further, GreenSky is a technology company. It provides customers with innovative means of financing that wouldn’t otherwise be available if customers were to reach out to the financial institutions that actually offer customers financing; one of GreenSky’s unique programs is called the GreenSky Program Loan.

Builders are the most popular users of these Program Loans, which allow construction companies, builders, and people who simply want to make home improvements to their places of living to take out a line of credit that’s open for six months; at the end of that period, customers begin to pay back loans in full.

It has not been long since Shervin Pishevar took on the US government with some controversial tweets on social media. He accused the government of neglecting some important factor that used to contribute to the country’s economy in the past. The negligence of which he alleged the government has led to the dragging of the country’s economy to the extent that it could soon be overtaken by other upcoming economies like the Chinese. China’s economy is growing rapidly due to the strong relationships that it has established with the developing countries. These countries have changed their priorities regarding imports and other factors of international trade to focus on China. With this trend, Shervin Pishevar predicts that China could soon overtake the United States in its Superpower title.

Shervin Pishevar also criticizes the government for allowing a few organizations in the industry to control the economy of the country. He states that the monopoly that has been allowed on some multinational firms has discouraged the investors from starting up businesses because they impose unfriendly regulatory requirements that scare them away from the industry. Some of the firms that were mentioned were Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Alphabet, and the Microsoft.

Shervin Pishevar also expressed his agitation for the value of bitcoin. He indicated that the bitcoin is expected to depreciate soon. However, the value of the cryptocurrency is expected to rise again and finally stabilize at the value between two thousand and five thousand dollars. This was quite astonishing to hear especially to the bitcoin investors. Shervin continued to criticize the way the bond market had been behaving. He states that the volatility of the bonds was becoming riskier and it would, in the end, affect the performance of the whole of the equity market. He was very quite categorical stating that this would not take too long to happen; it was a matter of weeks if not days.

Since then, Shervin Pishevar had remained silent until the recent appearance on Twitter.

Wes Edens is involved in far more than the New York City-based Fortress Investment Group

Wesley Robert Edens currently owns one-half of the National Basketball Association’s Milwaukee Bucks; is the sole owner of the electronic sports world’s FlyQuest, a professional League of Legends team; and owns a significant share in Aston Villa, an association football – soccer, or simply football around the rest of the English-speaking world – team that is a part of the English Football League Championship.

Malcolm CasSelle is a graduate of both MIT and Stanford with complimentary Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in computer science. He is an expert investor, experienced entrepreneur, and top level executive. Many times in his illustrious career he has been at the forefront of digital innovation. From online banking and social media, to in-game asset sales for video games. Currently he is the CIO for OPSkins, one of the largest in-game asset sellers worldwide.

CasSelle has been an investor of some of the biggest innovations to date. He invested early in Facebook, Zynga, and Bitcoin. CasSelle’s interest in Bitcoin is what made OPSkins the largest Bitcoin merchant globally, and now he is taking it even further.

OPSkins and CasSelle have just launched WAX, Worldwide Asset eXchange, and revolutionary player to player network that allows cross game trading and selling. CasSelle is the president and CEO. WAX uses newly minted blockchain technology and tokenization to operate in decentralized markets while avoiding fragmentation and fraud. For once players can get a return of investment on digital coinage and assets by selling them for actual currency. This is done through tokenization which allows any trade medium to virtualized for sale.

Using blockchains to create smart lists, WAX is able to sort buyers and sellers into guilds, allowing transparency in transactions so that every one is legit. Fraudulent operators will gain bad ratings allowing prospective buyers to avoid them. The only games that take advantage of WAX’s platform are the ones in its network. The possibility that WAX creates is staggering considering the effect blockchain technology has already had on cryptocurrency markets.

According to many experts blockchain technology will be the catalyst that virtualizes traditional banking. The rise in tokenization means that anything, including stocks and equity, can be digitized. As gamers represent a huge market, one that has been dealing in cryptocurrency for awhile, the inclusion of cross game sales by big gaming companies could change everything. CasSelle is certain of it, and more to the point he believes that WAX is the tipping point. Only time will tell.

It’s not atypical to hear a spokesperson ramble on about a company’s beginnings while an audience watches on in faked interest. Well, that’s not to say that Jeunesse’s beginnings are anything to write home about, but they’re certainly more impressive than your average. The story begins with a duo of inveterate entrepreneurs who weren’t satisfied to settle with retirement, so they re-emerged from their shells to do once more what they always did best: enterprise.

 

That duo was none other than Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis. While they’re names that you’ve probably never heard before, they’ll surely be remembered when we mention details like Jeunesse’s birth date landing on September 9, 20099 p.m. on the dot. The obsession with the sacred symbolism of the number 9 doesn’t stop there: They went on to release the Youth Enhancement System (Y.E.S.), which features nine anti-aging products that aim to eliminate many of the modern complications of our well-being.

 

Y.E.S. stands as a testament to what there’s still time for in life while we still have it. It’s an all-natural solution that attacks age-related issues from all angles by addressing what causes them, including:

 

  • Free radicals
  • Poor diet
  • Poor exercise
  • Excessive exposure to artificially induced radiation
  • Constant emotional stress
  • Toxins in the air, water and food

 

The unique aspect of Jeunesse and their nine-point system is their humble acknowledgment of nature’s power. Rather than throw pills at the issue and hope that it disappears, Y.E.S. was designed to provide deliberate doses of carefully curated ingredients to arm the body’s natural defenses against these complications. The issue isn’t that the body isn’t aware; it’s that we don’t supplement our systems with all that’s required to prevent these damages from occurring while repairing the damage that’s been done thus far.

 

The products that are included in Y.E.S. do the following and more:

 

  1. Wellness

Give your immune system a boost, bounce back from illness and stay well-defended from offending elements in your day-to-day life.

 

  1. Performance

Give your mind and body a boost, sleep well at night and awaken with a fierce readiness to take on the world ahead.

 

  1. Beauty

Eliminate simple flaws in your skin and bring back that glow that’s distinctly you.
