Curing cancer is complex and requires countless man hours of research and clinical data to be passed between researchers and doctors. All that vital data needs to be analyzed and delivered somehow, to doctors trying to cure cancer patients. For example, if a cancer researcher is analyzing a group of breast cancer patients taking Herceptin, they will examine and record why the drug apparently only works on 40% of the patients and not the rest! Many questions are examined as to what other factors could be involved in preventing that 60% who failed the cure. Could it be that perhaps diabetes or some other illness is involved, and is preventing the cure? Are these “incurable” patients taking some other medicines (drugs) that are interfering? These are the vital bits of information that researchers and doctors need to bridge between each other.
Mr. Eric Lefkofsky is an entrepreneur who is hot on the trail of solving exactly these sorts of challenges. He was personally motivated to start up a cancer research company called Tempus after his dear wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. Tempus is a technology company that has developed an operating system which helps bridge such vital data between researchers and doctors, to help in effectively treating cancer. According to Mr. Lefkofsky (Fortunate Brainstorm Health Conference in San Diego), there is a lack of resources that help combine genetic data with therapeutic data. Lefkofsky says, “Gathering molecular data is one thing, but you also need clinical [patient] data. You [also] need therapeutic and outcome response data.”
Lefkofsky notes that “If you were to go into any of the cancer treatment centers and ask who took Herceptin over two years and how they did, they’d need a grant and at least 90 days. That’s the sort of data that should flow freely between researchers, clinicians, and others.” And that’s precisely where Tempus steps in to solve problems. Mr. Lefkofsky is an incredibly generous and charitable man. In 2006, he and his wife formed a charitable trust that donates funding to educational and scientific causes helping save lives.

So the Petrellos donated to several research centers, and met Dan and Jan Duncan who also were business community leaders and had established the research center at the hospital.

A quarter of the fashion e-commerce market is owned by Amazon which makes it a very tough competitor. However, Kate Hudson’s Fabletics is giving Amazon a tough time. Fabletics has become a $250 million business during the last three years. Two things that brought popularity to Fabletics is subscription mechanic and active wear. The secret is to combine membership and customer’s favorite brand.
Not long ago, high-value brands were defined by their price and quality. Due to changes in the economy, these strategies will not last for long. Now other factors like exclusive design, customer experience, gamification elements, last-mile service, and brand recognition make the difference. Fabletics is becoming successful like Apple and Warby Parker due to its fashion brand membership. The company plans to inaugurate their sixteenth store soon. Currently, Fablectics has outlets in Hawaii, Illinois, Florida, and California.
Gregg Throgmartin, General Manager of Fabletics, said that he thinks from day one, Fabletics is working on a reimagined and modern ‘high-value brand‘. He said that Fabletic’s membership mode allows the company to offer on-trend fashion and personalized service at half the price of their competitors. People are easy to please when businesses know what they want and who they are.
The reason for the failure of other businesses is that people did not buy products from them after exploring their showrooms. People wanted to buy those things from shops where the prices were low. Fabletic’s strategy was totally the opposite. They changed browsing into a positive thing. The company decided to build relationships with customers instead of going to the pop-up store. They wanted people to rely on them. That is why they decided to use activities and events to know local markets better. As a result, half of the people entering their stores were already members and quarter of them would become members on the spot. When a customer tries an article of clothing, it goes into his shopping cart. Fabletics thinks that another part of the service is retail even if customers buy it from another place.
Fabletics makes sure that customers find the correct information on products both in digital and physical forms. It is customer psychology to like businesses that show the right information when people are exploring different brands. Tastes and trends keep changing; therefore, online data is helpful to decide what to keep at stores. Various sources like heat-mapping, local membership preferences, and real-time sales activity provide this information.
Distom Netral, SVP Operations Febletics, said that the importance of the increase in shipping is huge; however, building a brand requires global fashion trends and user preferences. He added that the company performs tricky tests and keep adding new ranges for success. Customer friendly strategy is helping Fabletics to grow despite many challenges.
Shawn Gold, Corporate Marketing Officer TechStyle Fashion Group, said that their brand is experiencing over thirty-five percent growth every year. The reasons for this high growth are an authentic spokesperson, excellent price, in-house media, good quality and creative teams. Fabletics is now growing in ten counties due to return on investment and data science.
Malini Saba is the chair of Saban– an establishment that has had or rather retains various diverse investment interests worldwide like oil and gas companies in China, technology in the US and real estate in India and Australia.
As a passionate philanthropist, Malini started the “Stree: Global Investment in Women.” Stree is a non-profit agency that aims at changing the way at-risk and low-income women and children in the whole world see themselves and their societal roles. This organization was inaugurated by Bill Clinton- Former US President. It offers a means by which women access legal empowerment and healthcare. It is also a forum through which grassroots movements connect with public policies in India, Africa, Central America and Eastern Europe.
Her life as an investor and philanthropist
Born in southern Asia, Malini Saba is an investor and philanthropist who has worked so hard to become an international business person. I think her life is one to be imitated by many.
She began her career several years back investing into territories the world over. Together with her associates, she fought so hard against corrupt individuals who tried to push her out of her area when she was just starting out. In the process, she lost a lot of cash, time as well as businesses.
An average person would have given up, but not Malini. She went on and started another enterprise with her associates. Once more, they encountered some pretty nasty experiences. Still, she did not quit!
As of today, it is clear that her persistence did pay off. Malini is among the biggest large-scale resource owners involving energy companies, rice fields, and real estate.
I am also intrigued by the fact that she is helping the less fortunate in the society. The Stree organization that she started helps in elevating other women.
Malini Saba began her investment career in the 90s with organizations from Silicon Valley. Her investment ventures include Netscreen Technologies, Paypal and Sycamore Networks, all of which have proved to be really successful.
One thing I realized is that Saba knows how to choose the best investments to risk her money. As she puts it, the commodity market is one of her favorite places to invest due to the risks involved as well as the high returns.
It is so incredible that even with her success; Malini still puts her family first. She does not rely on babysitters to take care of her child. Unlike many business women, she has a direct connection with her child.
CEO Andy Wirth of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings has an incredible ability to focus. It is that ability that he uses throughout the day to be incredibly successful. Everyone could learn a lesson from his extraordinary ability to focus.
When you first meet Andy Wirth you may notice that he is missing his right arm. He lost that arm during a skydiving accident in October 2013 that left him literally hanging in a vineyard fearing that he would die. At that time he did not know if rescuers would be able to get to him in time, but he focused on staying alive. His grandfather had taken him into the mountains many times as a young boy to teach him survival skills. As a young man, Andy worked as a mountain firefighter. Using the skills that he learned from his grandfather and as a firefighter, he focused on keeping calm and staying alive until help could arrive.
Life has changed since that day for Andy, but his ability to focus has not changed. He now dedicates a good share of his time to participating in ironmen events. Here he not only focuses on winning the race for his age division, but also focuses on the good that these events do for those less fortunate around him. He has even brought some of events to his ski resort. Andy says these events help to take the focus off himself and puts the focus on others.
Andy is also very focused on his job. He tries to come in each day with a positive attitude about what can happen at the resort and in the surrounding area. He realized that those coming to the resort were making a very tough choice. They could choose to enjoy better skiing conditions or they could choose a better atmosphere. Andy began to focus on what would happen if people did not have to make a choice. That is when he had a cup of coffee with the man that could make that change happen. Even though Andy has faced opposition within some community circles, his focus on building a gondola connecting the two resorts has become a reality assuming that the project receives the last governmental approvals needed.
