Mobile Dating Apps

Whitney Wolfe has spent most of her young adult years busy working on some of the hottest apps out there. Once she graduated college she immediately sought out working for Hatch Labs. Known for their hit dating app Tinder, Hatch Labs changed the way we date, but Wolfe wasn’t satisfied with this. She wanted to make her own dating app and she wanted to handle some of the issues surround harassment that were present at Tinder.

Bumble Is Changing Things

This is when she came up with the idea of Bumble. Online dating apps are easy to find, but they all seem to revolve around men initiating and dominating the entire dating experience. Bumble changes all of this by giving women the power to make the first move in all opposite sex matches. This means that men are forced to take a passive role in dating for a change. The approach has worked so far in terms of handling sexual harassment issues. Fewer than 0.1% of all users complained about sexual harassment on Bumble in 2015. There aren’t many stats surround sexual harassment in online dating, but this clearly shows the issue is well handled at Bumble.

Women Make The First Move

Bumble’s success model is paying off and the app is gaining on its rivals like Tinder and OKCupid. The internet in general has become a place where the uglier side of humanity is simply far too comfortable. Bumble wants to make this doesn’t happen in online dating. There are already millions of users and the app has already resulted in 150 million matches. It seems as if people enjoy the direction Bumble is taking them.

What Whitney Wolfe Has Planned Next

Whitney Wolfe already has an incredibly prolific career with many achievements in business, but she has no plans of stopping any time soon. Bumble is a smashing success and changing the way online dating works. People are clearly tired of the old way of doing things and they want something fresh to shake things up.

Not only has George returned to active trading, he has also increased his political contributions on George Soros made political contributions in favor of Hillary Clinton, but has shifted his political activity and contributions to opposing Donald Trump. Particularly, he is interested in helping to stop Donald Trump’s 100 day plan, in collaboration with the group Democracy Alliance. This is a group which has traditionally relied upon the vote of women and minority groups. George Soros’ political activity has been muted in recent years, but has picked up again because of his desire to play a role in the Trump election. George Soros’ political contributions have been a great source of his media attention.

Democracy Alliance Founded By Soros’ Funding

The group has since realized that as a result of this election, it’s old tactics were no longer effective on The group was founded in 2004 after the election with the intent of assisting in the defeat of Bush. This organization exists to make contributions to other groups which are in support of left-leaning candidates and watchdog groups.

Changing Tactics

Because of the defeat, George Soros has directed that Democracy Alliance change their tactics. The organization decided to cancel a conference which it was planning in light of the results. The defeat has made the group to realize that they would need to change in recognition of the fact that many working-class voters voted for Trump. One suggestion is that left-leaning groups spend more in states to get the message out on the ground, particularly in the Midwest.

Like many people cross the U.S. I was largely aware of Betsy DeVos as one of the most important education reformers in the U.S., but in recent months I have been learning more about the wide range of charitable programs the Michigan born philanthropist enjoys providing support for. Alongside the educational reform programs Betsy has backed she has also provided a large level of support for many arts based programs in Michigan and across the U.S. as well as backing a number of business ventures that will benefit the world through her own The Windquest Group.

Looking back at the life of Betsy DeVos has shown me the Holland, Michigan born philanthropist has always maintained an interest in politics dating back to her days as a student at Calvin College. Twice the chair of the Michigan Republican Party, Mrs. DeVos has impressed me with her ability to cross party lines and work with members of different parties to aid education reform across the U.S.; in Michigan itself Betsy DeVos has helped develop the first aviation based charter school in the history of the U.S. in the form of the West Michigan Aviation Academy. Before helping to form the Detroit Charter School system, Betsy DeVos was already playing an important role in education reform, particularly after attending the Potter’s House Christian School in Grand Rapids and being inspired to assist struggling families in finding the best educational options for their children. I have been pleased to see the Potter’s House Christian School remains an important part of the philanthropic program undertaken by the Dick and Betsy DeVos Foundation each and every year.

I have come to realize the work of Betsy DeVos is far more varied than I believed in the past, not only does she continue to back various educational programs she also looks to develop programs including arts programs and a range of business interests. The first national political role taken on by Betsy DeVos dates back to 2004 when President George W. Bush appointed her to the board of the Kennedy Center for the Arts, a group her own charitable foundation has supported for decades. Business also plays a major role in the work of Betsy DeVos as she and husband Dick have worked together to create The Windquest Group that is uses to invest in various business interest the couple are interested in; the forward thinking nature of Betsy DeVos has been shown, I believe, in the investments made in boxed water supplies and clean energy sources that show the interests of Betsy DeVos.

Success of a Business

Success in the manufacturing and food processing industry depends much on the kind of products a company offers to the market. There are different types of customers and each would like to get the assurance that the products they order are certified and verified to be used by humans. During many scandals involving food processing companies, when the case is followed it is often revealed that companies that have a low rating and few years in the industry are the ones that mainly offer products whose quality cannot be trusted. This trend is explained simply as a result of the heavy competition these companies face.

However, for companies like OSI Group, the path towards growth and success has always been smooth. The company enjoys massive support from its huge base of customers and has in response been offering them high quality products that are verified for quality and edibility. This focus on offering healthy and good quality products won the company an award in the category of food quality and environmental conservation. The effort the management team of OSI Group has been offering to the company has mainly been directed towards offering a system where customers are able to take part in shaping the products they get from the company.

They have a great network that is spread across more than 60 countries and with new tactics and plans, OSI Group is looking to serve more than that in few years to come. As a way to keep the network growing, the company has been investing in mergers and acquisitions, with the latest acquisition involving Baho Food Company, which serves Germany and Netherlands. Acquiring Baho Food Company helped OSI Group to expand its market share and to advance its agenda of growing to serve the whole world with different products.

Ranking among leaders in the industry has also been a benefit to the growth of OSI Group as many customers have wanted to be associated with the winning brand in the market. OSI Group offers product variety bundled with quality, so in case a customer fails to buy one of the products in display they are able to get something else from the same company.

Cleaning Company

The startup application had received a lot of funding in 2015 and 2016. The company received will over $50 million in late 2015 from venture capital companies. In total, funding has reached over $110 million. This surge in funding turned this small startup into a big deal with huge expectations.

Most other NYC home cleaning companies in the same market have trouble raising funds while Handy has the opposite problem. Handy has struggled in the beginning of 2016 to appropriately allocate their excess funds into productive parts of the project. The founders also worried that they would be criticized for squandering their abnormally high funding.

Venture capital has been correcting itself recently with funding going down rapidly. Many projects had received disproportionate amounts of funding in accordance to the type of application. This has lead to inappropriate spending habits of new technology startups. Investors are now going back to focusing on ROI rather than throwing money at new ideas and hoping to strike gold.

In 2014, Handy decided to stop geographical expansion of the company and they stuck to 28 cities. They wanted to focus on improving efficiency of the product and discover ways to maximize their ROI before trying to take over the world. They recently reported a profit margin of 72 percent over their monthly investment. Their profits have proven that they are not just another money burning startup. They have reported that they are open to investment but it may not be necessary at this point.

Their decision to focus on quality has paid off. Their staff is very happy and their is a high retention rate of employees. Both the amount of cleaners available on the application and customers are plentiful in the cities that they operate. Customer referrals, which is their primary method of growth, has drastically increased and their cost of obtaining new clients has become cheaper.
