One such initiative was taken by Oren Frank back in the year 2012, by developing an app called Talkspace along with his wife, which provides psychotherapy online. The user makes an account and pays a monthly subscription fee after which he is connected to a suitable authorized therapist. The app can be accessed on any mobile phone, tablet, and desktop, making it even more ubiquitous. Talkspace is a platform for all kinds of unlimited messages such as text, audio, and video. It has over 1000 therapists who are responsible for providing psychotherapy to about 500,000 clients across the globe.

Talkspace is a brainchild of Oren Frank, an ex-marketer who has now dedicated his life to helping people through his app. The idea of such a platform came from a personal experience he had with a couple of therapy. The positive end-results of the psychotherapy convinced him that all the people suffering from mental health issues deserve an accessible platform to help them deal with it. It is cheaper as compared to regular therapy sessions, hence eliminating the financial constraint which always causes concern to people. Learn More: https://ideamensch.com/oren-frank/

Kelvin Plank grew up in Maryland. He started playing football at an early stage but was a sweaty player which irritated him. He researched on fabric that could wick sweat from his body and keep him dry. This led to the birth of Under Armour sportswear.

Maryland football team had a policy that barred players from holding jobs; he, therefore, decided to start a rose delivery business. He named it Cupid’s Valentine. He delivered roses to his schoolmates during valentine’s season. In 4 years, Cupid’s Valentine generated $17000. He used the proceeds from this business to fund his sportswear idea.

Under Armour started in 1996. It started its operations in Kevin Plank’s grandmother’s basement in Georgetown. Currently, the company generates US$5 billion in revenue each year with more than 15000 employees. This success has a link to his policy of “think like an entrepreneur, act like an innovator, and work as a team player.”

Under Armour is listed under NYSE with a listing of US$20.82

In February of 2018, friends and business associates who follow Shervin Pishevar on Twitter witnessed some uncharacteristic behavior from him. He went on a tweeting rant that lasted for 21 hours.

Shervin Pishevar had been absent from Twitter for a few months prior to his noticeable return that day. He tweeted 50 times, and he switched from one topic to another throughout most of them. Shervin had recently stepped down from his leadership role at Investment company , a company that he had founded and led for several years. Shervin is an Iranian-American businessman and entrepreneur who has enjoyed a successful career in the field of investments. As a super angel investor, he has seeded over 60 startup companies. One of his most significant interests was in Uber, and he was an early investor in this organization. To date, he continues to play an advisory role for Uber, a ride share and transportation service company with its national headquarters in San Francisco. Shervin Pishevar has been a venture capitalist in Silicon Valley for many years.

Much of the Shervin Pishevar tweet storm was made up of grim predictions and warnings, and his timing for his forecasts would be toward the latter part of 2018. He said he foresees a shift happening in Silicon Valley as it is beginning to lose its competitive edge. He went on to rant about other topics, such as technology, globalization, immigration, the bond market, cryptocurrencies, the stock market, and the country’s economic outlook. Shervin prediction for the Bitcoin was that it would crash, and he expected it to drop by somewhere between $2,000 and $5,000 in value. He anticipated that the Bitcoin would begin to rebound in a 24 month period. Shervin Pishevar had a negative outlook for the stock market in late 2018. He warned investors to expect a drop in the Dow by approximately 6,000 points.

His tweet rant was erratic and at times difficult to decipher. It seems as if most people are still unsure, even more than one year later, exactly what caused his outburst on Twitter.

After observing the world’s population and the things that affect the youth, Bhanu Choudhrie noted that though the young population was burgeoning, many challenges affect them. He was astonished to note that university graduates are working as casual laborers in China, young alcoholics in Russia, and ‘surplus young men’ in India. Because of this, he opted to start the C&C Alpha Group. It is an organization that partners with various other parties to come up with solutions that affect multiple countries. They do this through several events called the Emerging Markets Symposium.

Creating better education strategies

Bhanu Choudhrie noted that one of the reasons the young population is a troubled lot is a problem with the education systems. Some of them are outdated while others do not address the real issues that affect the leaners. Because of this situation, most learners who go through such education systems end up with nothing useful to do and therefore, they sink into desperation. Through Emergency Markets Symposium, these entrepreneurs hope to come up with better education strategies so that learners can get the necessary skills that will help them to cope with modern life challenges.

Overhauling health systems

Another thing that the organization hopes to achieve is an overhaul of health systems in the countries where they operate. They say that some of the health systems do not address the kinds of health issues that are troubling society. For instance, they use outdated treatment techniques and therefore, they do not offer the type of quality treatments that people deserve. With the use of modern science and innovation from the best minds in the world, people should not be suffering from health conditions that they can avid with ease.

Although Bhanu Choudhrie lives in England, he has spent his life in other parts of the world. After he was born in Delhi, India, Bhanu Choudhrie moved to America after completing his education. There, he studied international business and marketing at the University of Boston and was an intern as JP Morgan Group. It was after his internship that he moved to England to start his career and investment journey. To know more Bhanu Choudhrie just visit revolvy.com
