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.
She might not be known by many, but Tammy Mazzocco is not an ordinary woman. He started her real estate career as a secretary with The Edwards Realty Company. Over the years, she has made a milestone in her career, has become a licensed realtor, and become one of the best-known real estate figures in Ohio.

December 2016 also recorded a higher average sale of $159,531 which was a 4.8% increase compared to the same period back in 2015. This represented a considerable growth given the set in of winter weather. However, there was a slide of sales regarding previously owned homes, which recorded a year-end sale of 0.7% ahead, compared to 2015. This environment can really favor people with Tammy Mazzocco and others with her caliber.
The median sale price of existing homes was recorded at $232,200, which marked an incredible increase of 4% compared to December 2015. According to Lawrence Yun, who is the chief economist, the market’s positive performance can be credited to constant job creations and low mortgage rates across Ohio. This means that people had money to invest in real estate and the market condition was just right.
This situation has made potential buyers be on the lookout whenever new listings become available. It is evident that people like Tammy Mazzacco are standing to benefit during this real estate high season. Contact Tammy Mazzocco via her Trulia.com page or Facebook account.
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.
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.
When Dino asked Duda Melzer who inspired him, Melzer credited John Davis, a Harvard University professor and consultant who worked with RBS in 1999 and Jim Collins, another consultant who specializes in family-run businesses.

The multilevel marketing organization the Q1 Group is a big hit in the Pacific Rim. The company hires more than a million sales representatives and offers affordable, high-quality products to people in underserved communities. The company was founded by Malaysian businessman Vijay Eswaran. He started the company in the Philippines in 1998 after learning about multilevel marketing while in college in the UK and the U.S. By the time he completed his MBA in 1986, Vijay Eswaran was also professionally certified and had experience working with multilevel marketing.
Vijay Eswaran is a hero to millions of people throughout Asia. Born in Penang, Malaysia to a civil service worker father and a mother who was a school teacher, Eswaran is a man of the people. His background is similar to many local people. They see his success as the result of hard work, unique vision and excellent planning on philanthropies.org. They also feel they too can be successful like Eswaran if given the opportunity. Eswaran uses the QI Group to provide them with economic opportunities that have helped to pull entire communities out of poverty and improve their lives.
Another way Eswaran and the QI Group helps underserved people and communities is through their charitable activities. The Q1 Group’s philanthropic arm is the RYTHM Foundation on YouTube. Through this organization they help thousands of people each year with charitable donations and providing them access to much needed resources. Eswaran also has his own charitable organization. That organization is called the Vijayaratnam Foundation.

Locals do not begrudge Eswaran his wealth because he earned it with his hard work and has provided them with a path that can lead them to prosperity also. Eswaran’s generosity has led Forbes Asia to name him a hero of philanthropy.
The entire country needs to move more, there is just about no doubt about this, and perhaps Kate Hudson thinks they will if only they had some cute gear to wear! If every time the average person was upset by the abysmal findings of whatever it is they were looking for, that they could then take that upset and build a company that would negate their dismay, maybe some would, but likely many would not. They would arbitrarily lament their lack of satisfactory options, and boo-hiss the industry at large, but not Kate Hudson.
She might well be one of the busiest celebrities in Hollywood, but that did not stop her from recognizing an opportunity. Disgusted with the workout clothing options she was finding, rather than pay some seamstress egregious amounts of money to quietly make her the best, one-of-a-kind workout gear, she let this galvanize her to help others, and built a business instead. The company is called “Fabletics.”
Kate Hudson did not grossly limit her ability by just getting involved in manufacturing a new spin on yoga pants, but rather built a clever subscription service into her website. There are a plethora of new metrics to focus on with the evolution of online buyers. Her brand, aside from their subscription service, focuses on things like “last-mile service,” brand recognition and the very important exclusive design. In addition, she joins a rather short list of wildly successful companies which started out only as an online retailer, and then proceeded to do the reverse of what almost every other company does. After creating a mega-hit brand through the online world, she has gone brick-and-mortar. Fabletics has launched stores in California, Hawaii, Illinois and Florida.
The recipe for success with Ms. Hudson’s thriving enterprise is that it is much easier to keep customers happy if you know what they want, rather than arbitrarily try to tell them what they want. Fabletics does something very few companies do, which is ask their customers what they like. There is the equivalent of a quiz for customers which they use to gauge their interests. The subscription service then capitalizes on what is learned using it to target-market to their subscription-based customers.
There might be nothing better than a company asking someone what they like, and then providing them with alerts when items they might be interested in are being offered. It seems so simple, and wildly efficacious, yet it is likely never done, or done in a disingenuous manner. Many companies might ask customers what they like, and then they just go on, ignoring what they have been told, and just proceed to use the information captured to market more stuff. Ms. Hudson sees consumers as not a means of growing her happiness, but more as a means of growing “their” happiness.
This focus on creating a better shopping experience has her celebrating a company that has grown just about exponentially in just 3 years time. The reason is simple: she listens, and then she makes a great product based on what she hears, which is perhaps better known as the best recipe for success ever.
