Jason Hope Looks Towards A High Tech Future

You may know Jason Hope as the tech genius behind one of the world’s first premium mobile content providers, Jawa. However, Hope has delved into many other, highly successful pursuits. From starting a highly acclaimed search engine optimization firm to developing mobile app solutions for busy professionals, Hope has stayed both extremely busy and extremely relevant throughout his career.

Today, Jason Hope is spending a large portion of his time writing as a guest blogger for such sites as Wired.com and his own blog, jasonhope.com. Lately, his interests have turned towards the boundless possibilities he sees in the coming implementations of the so-called Internet of Things. Hope says that, much more than simply an extension of existing technologies, the Internet of Things promises to be a revolutionary force which will completely transform the way that people, devices and the built environment interact with one another. Hope seeks to get young entrepreneurs and innovators thinking about the new directions in which this powerful and novel technology will be able to be pushed.

A futurist from birth

Jason Hope has been compulsively enraptured by technology since his earliest memories. As a young man, he read voraciously the likes of “Wired Magazine”, “Popular Science”, “Nature” and even technical journals like “The Lancet”. His intense interest paid off. After graduating from Arizona State University with a master’s degree in business, he founded his first startup, Jawa. His vision for Jawa was a company that would provide users of cellular telephones with premium paid content, like their favorite songs or ringtones. It developed an easy user interface that allowed customers to complete transactions in just a few clicks.

This may sound like just another tech company now. But what’s astonishing is that Hope was building this company in the late 90s, a time when far less than half of Americans even had a cell phone. The company went on to become one of the largest and, perhaps, the first provider of premium ringtones.

Hope’s sagacity didn’t fade. Today, he writes blogs, runs his portfolio of companies and proselytizes readers to the benefits of embracing future technologies.

Getting it right in the world of investing with Igor Cornelsen

 

Igor Cornelsen is one of the leading Brazilian investors. He has been working on his investment portfolio for close to four decades now. Currently, he is the owner of the Bahamas based Bainbridge investments. He started off with the company 5 years ago, when he was just a junior. The progress he has made has taught him a number of lessons that he would like to teach other investors like himself.

Igor has been in the industry long enough to watch some people make mistakes in investing, and incur great losses in the process. He made it a personal initiative to always help people who are new to investing, especially in the stock market, to make the decisions that will drive them to the top.

The process that he followed to make it to the top was quite interesting. Igor shares that not many people think about Brazil and the impact it is having on the world of finance while the reality is that it is currently the fifth largest economy. He states that he made a realization that if he had to make it big in investing, he would have to invest in Brazil. He bought stocks with the businesses that he had gauged and seen to be making great progress. This is how he was able to retire wealthy and continue pursuing the dream of helping others make sound investment choices.

Igor Cornelsen currently lives in Florida with his family. Besides being an investor with the Bahamas based company, he is a family man as he has a wife and two kids that he loves. One of the leisure activities that he enjoys a lot is golfing. He does travel between Brazil, the Bahamas and Florida a lot for business, but he says that the results the investments have given him are worth the sacrifice.

Before making the commitment, read the fine print and understand how you should conduct yourself. This is what will cushion the investor from the losses.

He has been an inspiration to many that would wish to make it in investing, and his Facebook is nothing short of informative and inspirational. The greatest quality that he has is that he is always ready to help, regardless of the situation or circumstances.

Danilo Diaz Granados Hosts a Remarkable Event

 

According to a recent PRNewswire release, TOYS for BOYS co-founder Danilo Diaz Granados hosted a memorable event this past July in Miami, Florida. The party included Dom Perignon, fine food, helicopter rides and a visit to the racetrack. It concluded with a boat ride at sunset.

Danilo Diaz Granados, who co-founded TOYS for BOYS in 2013, reportedly has a successful track record when it comes to holding what are sometimes called “hyper-sensory experiences.” Looking back, he told the press he wanted to create “a once-in-a-lifetime experience” for his guests. He added that now men who live in Miami “have a place to check out the most extravagant, one-of-a-kind products and places.”

This social activity was meant to give his guests the chance to experience the art, entertainment and cuisine “worthy of Miami’s extravagant style.” His guests had breakfast at Dame Zaha Hadid’s “One Thousand Museum” sales center. Then they were given a personal, private preview of the residential construction in the upscale Biscayne section of Miami.

There each guest was given the chance to drive a race car around the race track. The event continued with a taste of Dom Perignon champagne and lunch at the River Yacht Club on the Miami River hosted by none other than Dom Perignon himself.

The day came to an end with a sunset boat ride in the bay. Granados reported that they road in the newest boats of two of the event sponsors–Technomar and Van Dutch. He and his business partners pulled off a party that included air, land and sea.

But where did it all begin? In truth, it began in the same way as it does for others. It began with an education.

About.me tells us that Danilo Diaz Granados is a graduate of Babson College in Wellesley Massachusetts.

It was there he decided that Miami’s Latino community needed a “luxury boutique” that sold such products as art, exotic cars, jewelry and watches in one store. He soon co-launched The TOYS for BOYS Boutique.  He remains a big part of social media, and you can find Danilo on both Tumblr, as well as Twitter.

Hedge Fund Manager Kyle Bass Set To Speak At The Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit

Dallas-based hedge fund manager Kyle Bass has been asked to be a speaker at the upcoming Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit, which will be held at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. The Summit is presented by Conde Nast and the Aspen Institute. Bass will join Amazon C.E.O., Jeff Bezos, best-selling author Walter Isaacson, co-founder of the Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative, Priscilla Chan, Chobani CEO, Hamdi Ulukaya, U.S. secretary of the interior, Sally Jewell, and Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice-president as a guest speaker.

Bass is often asked to speak about the economy and financial news, but he is also asked to speak about politics and an assortment of other issues that don’t really fall into his wheelhouse. But that doesn’t faze Kyle Bass, despite what UsefulStooges.com writes about him. Bass likes the limelight and the Vanity Fair Summit is another venue to keep Mr. Bass in the public’s eye. But over the last eight years, Kyle has made some questionable choices. He’s not the same person that made a fortune betting that the subprime mortgage industry would fall apart in 2008. He’s not the same guy that bet that the European Union would have to bail Greece out of their financial debacle, either. Bass has stepped on several important toes in the financial industry, and he has made himself look bad in the public’s eye.

When Argentina defaulted on debt bonds a few years ago and left four hedge funds holding a lot of worthless paper, Kyle Bass, the hedge fund manager of Hayman Capital, blame the hedge funds for trying to take advantage of the people of Argentina. When General Motors installed steering devices that malfunction and caused the deaths of the drivers of those vehicles, Kyle Bass blamed the victims, not General Motors. Hayman Capital’s hedge fund was the largest shareholder in GM at the time.

The most recent news about Bass is his bet that drug stocks will drop when his partner, Eric Spangenberg, brings allegations about pharmaceutical companies overcharging for life-saving drugs.

Michael Zomber Is a Collector and an Investor

Michael Zomber has come a long way from his college days. He did his undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois. He worked very hard and took on the very difficult challenge of a double major. He graduated with bachelor’s degrees in English and psychology. He wanted to do this because he always loved to challenge himself. However, his education did not stop there. He felt that he needed a graduate degree to make him more desirable on the job market. Therefore, he enrolled in UCLA where he studied English literature. He eventually earned a master’s degree in this subject.

Michael was not certain what type of job he wanted to get when he finally finished his education. He made a trip to a gun show with a friend. It was at this show that he became interested in antique guns. He knew right away that he wanted to make these beautiful works of art a major part of his life. He soon started to teach himself about the history of guns to the point that he quickly became an authority on the subject. His collection of guns has grown considerably over the years. He has often loaned some of his guns to museums and historical societies so that other antique gun enthusiasts can enjoys looking at them.

His gun collection has made Michael a celebrity. He never expected to get this much attention. However, he is happy to talk about his guns with anyone who is interested. There are some guns that he will never sell. However, he will regularly buy guns because he believes they are very good investments. Michael understands which guns are going to go up in value in the future. He buys these guns and puts them away for a few years and allows them the time needed to increase their value. He will then sell these guns online or at live auctions. Including when he makes documentaries through his production companies.
