Jason Hope suggests that in the next step of technology every imaginable device will have the ability to connect to one another.
Companies will rush to make the best apps in order to control the online home of the future.

Not only is The Internet of Things convenient but it is making society safer. Hope gives the example of public transportation which is now much safer due to monitoring of maintenance issues and the real-time mapping of bus routes.Outside the city, in rural areas, this technology can come in especially useful.

A Personal Cause For Him
Most human rights activists aren’t motivated by something that actually happened to them. usually, they are motivated by something they have seen on the internet or something they have seen in other media. However, for Thor Halvorssen he is trying to fight for a cause that has personally affected him and his love ones. Born in Venezuela, his family includes some of the most prominent members of Venezuelan society. The rise of dictators in his home country has made life difficult for his loved ones. In fact, some of them have even been arrested or killed for their resistance.
How He Stands Up For Others
The most important way that he stands up for others is his efforts to expose the conditions that are so common for those living under dictatorships. To do this he often employs the use of documentaries discussing the lives of those living under oppression. Beyond his efforts to expose these injustices he has also made attempts to spread his message to people living under dictators.
What He Plans To Do Now
The Human Rights Foundation is the center of activism against closed societies. No other organization has made such an effort to change things around the world and no other organization has received so much recognition. To keep things up Halvorssen wants to focus his energy on connecting with other activists and doing everything possible to create a more global movement to stand up to the dictators around the world who threaten the rights of their people. He refuses to allow this to deter him in the slightest.
About Thor Halvorssen
Thor Halvorssen is a human right activists known for his work as the president of the Human Rights Foundation. For more than 13 years he has used his talent to help expose the conditions of people living in closed societies and made an effort to uplift them from their typically abysmal lives.

Adam Goldenberg is a hot name in 2016. Goldenberg is the co-founder of JustFab, a website for those seeking fashionable shoes. Goldenberg admits that when he first started the company, he really didn’t know certain styles of shoes were called. The one thing on his side is that he knows how to scale a business. With his partner Don Ressler, he knew that they were on a good path to success because both of them were familiar with how to transition once the business is up and running.
While it seems as though the fashion industry is completely saturated, it’s the e-commerce that is changing the way men and women shop for fashion. Brands are big in 2016, and with a leading brand, JustFab has made its mark online. What keeps Ressler and Adam Goldenberg ahead of the game is their passion as well as their drive to make this business a success. The online advantage is clear for these co-founders, and they are having a blast growing their business. See: http://www.fabletics.com/about
What gives Goldenberg his unique advantage? He is what some call a natural born entrepreneur, simply because he started his first business when he was only 15 years old. Adam Goldenberg’s first company, Gamers Alliance was dedicated to social graces online, and ultimately he sold the business to MySpace, one of the first popular sites for sharing your likes, dislikes, and photographs.
Quitting high school was his next move, and in 1999 he was elected as the Vice President of a company known as Strategic Planning. Goldenberg was able to hail the title as the youngest COO in history at that time. During this time he met Don Ressler, who is his co-founder for JustFab. Both gentlemen experienced massive success early on in their careers, which is another contributing factor to their success and notoriety now with their new and scalable company. Don’s previous experience was with his first business called Fitness Heaven on builtinla.com, dedicated to all things fitness. Don was focused on building his brand, which has ultimately well-served both he and Goldenberg as they continue to grow JustFab in the online space.
Sometimes it takes a seasoned entrepreneur to unleash the power of a young and inspiring entrepreneur which is exactly what Mike Baur, the founding partner of the Swiss Start Up Factory, is aiming to do with the Swiss Start Up Factory.
It was during his 20 year tenure in the Swiss banking industry that Mike watched as the old guard of power and Swiss money dropped the ball on tapping in to new Swiss innovation. An entrepreneur himself, Mike believed there was a way to bring some new blood into the mix and so the idea of Swiss Start Up Factory was born.
Climate Change Was Needed
There is a lack of cohesiveness in the Swiss business sector which has discouraged investors and resulted in a stagnation of new growth and Swiss innovation in Mike’s view and he wants to change this.

Successful launch of the Swiss Start Up Factory
The Swiss Start Up Factory Concept
Mike compares the Swiss Start Up Factory approach to that of a manufacturing process. The first step of every manufacturing process is of course creating a prototype. Once a prototype of the business is created Mike Baur and his team are able to shape, analyze and evaluate the potential of the new venture. All of this is performed at an accelerated pace as they mentor their young entrepreneur through the process. And when there is favorable proof of concept, the Swiss Start Up Factory then helps to bring a collaborative team of business professionals and investors together before removing their mentoring cap and letting the young entrepreneur take flight.
The goal is to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs by assisting them through the most critical step of a new business venture, start up. Mike Baur knows you cannot teach someone how to be an entrepreneur but they can help to raise awareness and hopefully help individuals tap in to the entrepreneurial spirit that might be hidden inside and inspire them to work hard to achieve their true potential.
