OSI Group Is Not Afraid To Innovate

OSI Group was founded in 1909 by a German immigrant. The company began as a meat market. Over the years they gained a reputation for being able to offer a quality product. Otto Kolschowky named his company Otto & Sons. Otto and Sons grew into a meat distributor for food businesses in the local area. The operation remained in Oak Park, Illinois for many decades. When the food giant McDonald’s moved into the Illinois area, it called upon Otto and Sons to be its meat supplier.

Otto and Sons were up to the task. Over the years of working with McDonald’s they were able to introduce several innovations to keep them in stride with the growing enterprise. The patty cutting machine was a simple, yet thoughtful idea that helped streamline business at McDonald’s restaurants. It allowed the meat company to deliver a product that was ready to use. Otto and Sons also implemented cryogenic freezing. Cryogenic freezing and liquid nitrogen tunnels gave them the ability to keep a tremendous amount of stock on hand. This put them at an advantage over the other meat suppliers that McDonald’s were using at the time. Eventually these type of creative business maneuvers propelled Otto & Sons to be McDonald’s exclusive meat supplier.

Otto and Sons eventually became OSI group in 1975. OSI group has expanded to international levels. The company has plants operating in 17 countries. There are 65 plants in total. They offer several different food services along with the meat patty that made them famous in the beginning. Restaurants such as Pizza Hut, Papa John’s, Starbucks and Subway all rely on OSI to supply them with their food needs.

The Interdependence between Fashion and Technology

Christopher Burch, a creative investor in a chain of businesses in different industries, is the founder of Burch Creative Capital. He also co-founded Tony Burch, a luxury fashion brand. Burch has utilised his deep marketing knowledge to sell financial services, technology, consumer products, and hospitality services. His success philosophy involves the application of support, scale, imagination, incubation, and creativity to consumer goods.

Burch’s success started in 1976 while still studying at Ithaca College. They teamed up with his brother to grow a new business they had founded, Eagle’s Eye, to 165 million dollars. They later sold it to another investment chain, Swire Group. From his vast experience, Burch acknowledges that the fashion and technology industry have grown together in a fascinating way.

In the 1970s, the boom box excited its users due to its ability to carry around their favourite stations. Also, as one side played the user’s chosen music, the other could record it from a cassette. Fashion and technology are currently synthesising. Fashion designers depend on technology to manufacture what delivers.

Dutch designer Anouk Wipprecht terms the marrying of technology and style as an excitement and experiment playground. She says that the deeper one dives into this playing field, the more it rewards them with unending possibilities. She has made use of the fashion-technology combination to come up with her avant-garde designs. One example of her major works is the drink-making dress.

Technology has been engaged in advancing fashion. Bicycle helmets are not very fashionable to wear. To replace this, technology has been used to manufacture an airbag which the cyclist wears around the neck. Its purpose is to protect the rider against injuries in case of an accident, similar to the helmet’s purpose. However, it is better in that it allows a better vision of one’s surrounding while cycling. Kevin Cannon and Ashwin Rajan have come up with the Frontline Gloves that enable firefighters to gesture each other on vital information, for example when to vacate a building.

On the other hand, to be popular, technology sometimes needs fashion assistance. While Google Glass may be fashionable to technologists, it may not be to everyone. One reason is its high cost to an average person while another is the stigma for wearing glasses. Diane Von Furstenberg, a fashion designer, came to the rescue of this by encouraging her models to wear this while cat-walking. This made the glasses fashionable and popular. Technology and fashion’s future both depend on each other.

Mike Baur Proceeds To Offer Support To Upcoming Entrepreneurs

Many individuals have come up with initiatives that support creativity and the ability to come up with products that can cause a revolution in the market, but none has done it better than Mike Baur. Mike Baur is a professional who worked in a senior position as a banker for about 20 years before he moved out of banking to start his journey as an entrepreneur. In his new journey that began in 2014, Mike Baur has been working to support entrepreneurs who have good ideas but lack either skills or the funds needed to push the project forward.

 

When he joined entrepreneurship, he did not have an idea how big the project would grow to become the best incubation facility in Switzerland. The Swiss Startup Factory works with entrepreneurs in various categories by supporting their quest for growth and attainment of their goals. It is a company that is focused on delivering ways through which young entrepreneurs can navigate the complex world of business.

 

Accounting and legal support

At the early stages of a business, there are legal requirements that have to be fulfilled before the business is fully chartered to operate. Even then, it has to make sure it operates within the required legal framework and no contravention of the agreement laid earlier is made. Understanding the legal requirements the business has to comply with may not be in the domain of the entrepreneur at the beginning but after some legal education they can get ideas about how things work. Same thing applies to accounting processes. The Swiss Startup Factory makes sure the entrepreneur understands all the requirements that the business has to fulfill to proceed well.

 

Post accelerator support

Going through the incubation process to completion is not enough to mean the entrepreneur cannot make mistakes. After the three months of incubation, the Swiss Startup Factory offers three months incubation that ensures the business follows all the ideas shared during incubation. Mistakes may also happen and in the absence of a professional the entrepreneur may find it challenging to learn about the market.

 

More about Mike Baur

As a successful entrepreneur, Mike Baur is looking forward to supporting more entrepreneurs through the Swiss Startup Factory. He started in 2014 but the progress he has recorded is massive. Mike Baur attended the University of Rochester, where he earned an MBA before he later joined Bern University to graduate with an Executive MBA.

 

 

Duda Melzer: Insired To Innovate

Eduardo Sirotsky Melzer, known virtually exclusively as Duda Melzer, is a third generation member of the Sirotsky family, which run Grupo RBS, one of Brazil’s largest media companies. As president, Melzer oversees the company founded by his grandfather, Maurício Sirotsky Sobrinho, in 1957. While family-operated businesses are common in Brazil, Duda Melzer was not handed his position as CEO on a platter. His uncle, Nelson Pacheco Sirotsky, who was chairman of Grupo RBS, insisted that all family members working in executive positions first earn an MBA from a respected university, which Duda obtained from Harvard University. Another condition was that executives prove their worth outside of the family business, which Duda Melzer did by working at the Delphi Corporation and as CEO of BoxTop Media in New York.

Since becoming head of Grupo RBS, Melzer has prided himself on implementing an innovation strategy, which the company received honors for in 2014. In recognition of the example he sets as part of the new generation of executives in family businesses worldwide, Duda Melzer was placed on Cambridge Institute for Family Enterprise’s 2015 list of examples of excellence.

Additionally, Duda Melzer serves as chairman of e.Bricks Digital, Grupo the VC company he founded, which provides capital and expertise to companies in Brazil and U.S. companies targeting Latin American markets.
