Jacob Gottlieb is the Chief Investment Officer of Visium Asset Management which is a healthcare hedge fund until the year 2016 when a scandal erupted, but he survived that wave and continued serving in the same position. The fact that he was found innocent while the rest of his workmates went down speaks volumes about him as an honest and disciplined as well as dedicated person in his work. Before that position, he was a partner at Balysany Asset Management and before that he served as an investment portfolio manager at Merlin Financial. In that case, his history is abundant in the field of investment which he seems to take an interest in undoubtedly. He developed an interest in the area of investment at a young age and in seventh grade, he won a stock assortment competition in school. He attended the Brown University where he acquired a Bachelor of Arts in economics and a Doctor of medicine from New York University School of Medicine. Additionally, he completed his internal medicine internship at St. Vincent hospital. Having ventured into both the fields of medicine and finances, Jacob Gottlieb finds them similar in that those involved take a lot of risks to achieving their objectives and that has made him successful in his endeavors.

Beyond work, Jacob Gottlieb takes interest in giving back to the community and he therefore plays a crucial role in the Covenant House which is an international organization that helps and protects children. He contributes towards the services offered by the organization which include health care, education, drug abuse treatment and prevention as well as legal services. Being a privately funded agency, it means that Jacob Gottlieb contributes largely financially individually to keep it running. Surprisingly, he as well takes interest in baseball as a sport and he has at some point traded baseball cards which is also a pathway for his discovery of investing. Additionally, he was courageous enough to sell beverages to golfers using a wheel cart which depicts his resilience in achieving his set goals in the entrepreneurial world. Right from the word go, Jacob Gottlieb knew what he wanted to do in his life which is evident with when he left Sanford C. Bernstein & Co to pursue his career as a healthcare portfolio manager. By so doing, he took a risk but was confident that it was going to work out for him and his plans.

For a business to run continuously without failure, short term and long term goals are set and rules set aside too to be followed to achieve these goals. The business will be termed as a success when these goals are met within the fixed period. Louis Chenevert is one great man who knew well how to plan himself to achieve the set goals. Planning his work well while focusing on the long-term benefit of the company is one of the tricks he uses to make things work for him. He made decisions that he knew would have an impact on the future of the company.

The current status of the previous companies Louis has worked with proves it all. For instance, United Technology Corporation is currently one of the best in the global manufacturing market. Louis worked with UTC for less than ten years, through which he managed to raise the company to greater heights than he found it. He started working as the chief operating officer and then rose to the president before becoming the director of the Corporation. While still at UTC, Louis strategized through investing in innovation, skilled labor, and long-term goals as he knew this was his way of ensuring a constant bright future for the corporation.

Before joining UTC, Louis was working with Pratt and Whitney where he served as the vice president then later promoted to be the president. He managed to create the turbofan engine with superb features like reduced fuel consumption and reduced emission, not knowing that his future company (UTC) would come to benefit from that.

Louise was born in Montreal, Quebec. He acquired his degree in business administration in Production Management from HEC Montreal University. After studies, he secured a job with General Motors, where he worked as the general production manager and for about 14 years. While still at GM, Louis got a chance to work Pratt and Whitney, and that is when he moved from GM.

This rule of always leaving where you work in a better state than how you found it is what has made Louis great. If a company becomes successful, then definitely the people in it become successful too.

Jorge Moll Neto is the President of the D’Or Institute for Research and Teaching. He talks about how innovation is leading to major advances in healthcare worldwide. Today, this is especially true in the Silicon Valley along with its neighborhoods as the advances in digital technology have now overflown into healthcare. This has opened new horizons for this industry.

Dr. Albert Chan, is the vice president of innovation, Sutter Health. This is the second largest healthcare network in the US. He went to Brazil to promote the use of new technologies into its routine.

He showed how new technology could transform the way in which patients are cared for. This means that a routine appointment will allow the doctor to retrieve all the information about the patient with a single voice command. Google Glass has also been used for this purpose.

Using this technology allowed for a more efficient as well as humanized interaction between the doctor and patient. It ensured that 100% attention was focused on the patient, as the doctor did not have to devote time to consulting files or taking any kind of notes. This also allowed for higher safety as well as depth in medical evaluation. After the consultation, all the information gets structured and reviewed by the specialist remotely. This leads to increased productivity and improves upon the patient experience. Watch this video on youtube.com.

Jorge Moll talks about smartphones being integrated into medicine. The users can access their medical history and make appointments online, rather than going through a “call center.”

All these initiatives reflect the future of medicine. The various health sectors of Brazil, such as hospital networks, besides entrepreneurs, startups, as well as individual developers, and venture capitalists, along with private and public institutions of teaching and research will be engaging and be collaborating more. This will lead to rapid advances in medical innovation in Brazil. Jorge Moll stresses upon the need to cultivate this kind of partnerships that will accelerate the process.

This is not an option anymore, but the need of the hour. Hence Jorge Moll suggests incorporating all this in the field of medical care. Follow Jorge Moll on Linkedin.

Women have always had myriads differences when it comes to the taste and preferences in regards to dressing, but one thing is for sure, they all yearn for something which will leave them looking classy and trendy but at the same time affordable. They all want to look and feel good by dressing in clothes which are fashionable and for decades now the market strives to ensure that this is taken care of. Unfortunately, not all categories have been catered for especially when it comes to matters sportswear. For many years, women have been jogging around and working out with unfashionable clothes thanks to lack of quality athletic wear in the market. Luckily, Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler realized this massive gap in the market and that is how Fabletics was born. The two decided to turn things for the better by creating athletic wear which is functional, fashionable and on top of it all, affordable.

Rather than focusing on the market trends which were in place, Don and Adam put their creativity to play and created female sportswear which was not only fashionable but also met the needs of every woman. To be able to know whether their products met this criterion, Adam and Don conducted consumer tests. As a result, the duo was able to get more than they initially wanted as they also got to learn about some of the most significant problems in the women’s sportswear which was in the market at that time. For instance, they were expensive, outdated and to add salt to the injury they did not come in perfect fits.

They were either too baggy or too small which made it even more uncomfortable for a woman to engage in sports and other activities such as working out. To be able to reach their goals, Don and Adam went on to add Kate Hudson in their team. Being a woman, she was in a better position to help them as she had better knowledge of the woman’s needs. Also, she would be very beneficial as she would help connect Fabletics to the female consumers through her friendly character and also because she was a known personality.

After working out the several common problems in starting a business such as capital, the duo was now able to meet the need for complexity in female athletic wear thanks to Ressler’s experience in the fashion industry and also commitment. Since then, Fabletics has never looked back, and it continues to soar to greater heights through the provision of high-quality sportswear for women and at an affordable price. It has been able to achieve all these due to factors such as online domination, Kate’s presence which helps the company convince women of the effectiveness among many others. They also offer discounts on a VIP basis which adds an advantage to them. Nonetheless, Fabletics is a company which does not settle for less, and in early 2017 the company announced its plan to expand its market through the provision of sportswear for women who are in the plus size category.
