Chances are you’ve been reading about the Swiss Startup Factory because you are an entrepreneur and you’re curious. You may be aware that Mike Baur, the co-founder of SSF is forging ahead with this endeavor because he is more passionate about helping the young entrepreneur get started. Baur has more than 20 years’ experience in the banking industry which has given him the insight he needs to help startups get off the ground with their finances as well as to help them hone their long-term vision.
The Swiss Startup Factory was founded just a few years ago in 2014 ,and since that time it has become the foundation for which young entrepreneurs get their start. This Zurich-based organization is helping startups get the counsel they need to get started, as well as their long-term vision to grow and gain momentum. Any startup needs fundraising to get moving, and Baur along with Hartweg can work together to make big things happen in Switzerland for these young businessmen and women that are anxious to strike out on their own.
Mike Baur and Hartweg credit the strength of their organization with their large network of entrepreneurs as well those that would be potential customers and advisors along the way. The accelerator program that is offered by Baur and Hartweg is for three months. This is like a three month training period, allowing entrepreneurs the opportunity to have access to the best mentors, advisors, and even prime office space in the heart of the city of Zurich. The core concept of the factory was to build a network of entrepreneurs that could make a sound contribution to the business world, by offering startups the cream of the crop when it comes to the financial foundation of their business. The advising is a vital part of any startup, and with wise counsel and coaching Baur believes that he has given entrepreneurs everything they need to get off to a great start.
Ambition is a great thing, but it’s not always enough to get a business started or to keep it running. The more sound advice a startup gets in the beginning, the more likely they are to have long-term success. Many entrepreneurs start up only with a wish that they might have a successful launch. They don’t always realize how competitive the marketplace is and what is needed in order to achieve real success.

Actress Kate Hudson is certainly no fool when it comes to style, and she knows that active wear like leggings have pushed denim out of the top selling arena. The work-out gear company she co-founded, Fabletics exploded onto the e-commerce scene in 2013 and has never looked back.
Fabletics sells brightly colored and patterned yoga pants, tees, tanks, leggings, bra crop tops, swimsuits and even sexy, comfy dresses. The concept features a subscription membership with personalized boutiques. The idea is working nicely, because Fabletics already has more than one million VIP members located around the world.
Fabletics has two other co-founders who happen to be labeled branding geniuses. They are business partners Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler who are thrilled with the success of their active wear retailer. Things are proceeding “just fab-u-lously” online, that the trio are planning to open up to 100 brick and mortar retail Fabletics stores within the next five years. Fabletics is covering all the fashion bases, so to speak.
Fabletics’ motto or philosophy is “Live your passion,” something Kate Hudson strongly believes. She is loved by many as a Hollywood star, but she is also admired as a busy mom of two young boys, living a “regular” lifestyle like most of us. She relies on stylish, comfortable clothing that can take her from dawn into night. Fabletics appeals to that fit lifestyle and makes on-trend active wear that is affordable, functional, flattering and with Kate Hudson’s stamp of approval.
The key to Fabletics’ success might also lie in how it is made. The so-called middle man is removed from the picture. Instead, every design of the label is produced in-house at the company’s L.A. headquarters. That means they can roll out many new looks each month and pass the value on to their customers.
To attract new subscribers, Fabletics offers the first active wear outfit for just $25 with free shipping. As a VIP member, shoppers will save up to 50% off regular pricing and earn points towards free loyalty items.
A VIP does not have to shop each month; that choice is always up to them. To avoid being charged every month, the VIP only has to click on the “Skip the Month” button in their boutique. If they don’t take action, then their credit card will be charged $49.95 on the 6th until they cancel.
For many years most correctional facilities used paper request forms. Basically everything involving inmate request forms was done on paper. While the use of paper request forms is a proven way to handle inmate request forms, the amount of time needed to handle the forms can be time consuming.
Securus Technologies has been a mainstay in providing technology for correctional facilities. As a way of providing other options beyond traditional paper request forms, Securus Technologies recently introduced a software application Inmate Forms and Grievance. The software application provides a technology driven option for utilizing inmate request forms. The technology is an automate way to utilize inmate request forms. Get the latest news on Linkedin about Securus.
I believe that the use of the Inmate Forms and Grievance application will offer correctional facilities many advantages over the traditional paper method. The application will allow correctional facilities to handle inmate request forms in a digital system. The use of a digital system will reduce the amount of time needed to handle inmate request forms by a significant amount.
I feel that by using a digital platform, access to the inmate request forms will be easier for correctional staff and inmates. A digital platform allows users to access the desired information from a variety of devices and the location is not important. This gives both staff and inmates more flexibility in accessing inmate request forms.
Additionally a digital platform reduces the amount of time needed to handle request forms. The technology developed by Securus Technologies provides an array of options that make handling the inmate request forms much easier than using paper request forms.
I feel that the Inmate Forms and Grievance software created by Securus Technologies will have a major affect on correctional facilities regarding inmate request forms.
The technology will allow correctional staff to focus more on facility related concerns such as safety and security by reducing the time needed to handle inmate request forms.

After having scaled back on his political spending for more than ten years, billionaire investor and business magnate George Soros has resurfaced as a major backer of democratic political activism.
Specifically Soros has pledged more than $25 million to presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and other party nominees and causes.
It was in 2004 that Soros spent roughly $27 million to unseat then US President George W. Bush and later held back on his political contributions. But over the past few months, he has expressed alarm and fear over Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Soros political adviser Michael Vachon told Politico that Soros has been more active in contributing to this year’s democratic party as the risks are extremely critical.
According to the Federal Election Commission (FEC) records, George Soros had donated more than five million dollars to a political action committee (PAC), which backs Clinton.
What’s more Soros donated millions of dollars to boost the number of Hispanic voters in crucial swing states as well as five million dollars to a nonprofit, the Voting Rights Trust, that battles conservative attempts to restrict voting.
Soros also made contributions to Planned Parenthood Votes and to a Senate Majority PAC that advances Democratic Senate candidates.
In addition to Soros’ contributions at http://www.wsj.com/articles/a-bearish-george-soros-is-trading-again-1465429163, many other benefactors have donated to various Democratic activities this election cycle such as an environmentalist, a hedge funder and two media magnates.
Born in Budapest in 1930, George Soros has focused on philanthropic efforts that also take in his international foundations. These organizations have donated more than $13 million over the past thirty years to non-profits that protect the rights everyone should have in society and build worldwide wellness programs as well as schooling.
After deciding he had enough money in 1979, Soros established the Open Society Foundation. Today the fund operates in more than one hundred countries and works to advance issues such as open society and human rights.
He is the author of more than a dozen books and his articles on politics and economics have been published in international newspapers and magazines.
According to Forbes and Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Soros is worth approximately $24.9 billion. He is the chairman of Soros Fund Management LLC, a hedge fund with a reported value of approximately $13.4 billion.
