Anil Chaturvedi and The Highlights of The Recent AECAL Panel Convention

Anil Chaturvedi was one of the bankers leading the panel for the recent convention of AECAL, or the Asian E-commerce Alliance. In the convention’s official website, it is shown that Chaturvedi was joining with AECAL’s Founding Partner, Dominik Gyllensvard and H.E.M. Selva Nail, the Consultant General of India, to push for the advocacy of AECAL today. Chaturvedi is the Managing Director of Hinduja Bank in Switzerland and with his help, he is able to push for more economic prosperity, opportunities and reforms in Asia’s business sectors.

The hope of AECAL is in building a balanced Asian economy. Chaturvedi supports AECAL’s vision in diversity as well as support for the small-scale businesses in Asia that are participating in the competition against the big leagues. For instance, in India’s start-up scene, AECAL is happy to report that Amazon has already built a lot of logistics centers in the country to help with the country’s goals in eCommerce.

India is also pushing ventures in retail. With networks in the United States, Chaturvedi supports AECAL’s ventures to spread more jobs in multiple cities and regions in Asia. The good thing about AECAL, too, is that it wants to value those business start-ups with the simplest business models. Simplicity is beauty and less volatile. It is less prone to hidden risks. This is why simple business programs are a priority in both AECAL and Chaturvedi’s advocacy for the economy.

Chaturvedi also addressed in the convention the issue of unorganized retail structure. The modern economic system has indeed posed a lot of issues and challenged a lot of economic structures in Asia. The lack of access to competition and better market knowledge in India’s farmers is also another concern for AECAL that Chaturvedi addressed in the panel.

Online Gaming Creates Need For Cryptocurrency Market

If you have played games online recently, you might notice it’s almost like being in a different world. In those worlds, in theory, users can create items or locations that can be sold to other players. The problem many face is that there is not a centralized marketplace for selling those items currently. The reason this doesn’t exist is because not everyone uses the same cryptocurrency. Luckily for game players Malcolm CasSelle from the Massachussetts Industry of Technology, has created a centralized market place to make transactions simple to complete in the future. That technology is known as the Worldwide Asset eXchange, known as WAX for short.

Mr CasSelle has been involved with many of the more popular gaming networks over the past decade as he has worked to produce this universal marketplace. Xfire and MediaPass are companies that may be well known to other games. Mr. CasSelle’s involvement in the industry has been been limited to the gaming niche though, as he worked with Zynga to produce games that allow players to improve in by spending their money.

Many have been nervous to jump into these games for security reasons. Mr CasSelle indicates that the WAX program is closely monitored for fraud. This change in online play would allow someone that is plying in a online poker game using play chips to sell his chips and allows the purchaser to play use that money to pay for real chips in a game such as poker.

The safety of any online network dealing with financial assets will be watched closely. Mr. CasSelle has created what he calls a blockchain system to reduce these fears. That blockchain operates using a Delegated Proof of Stake (DPOS) consensus algorithm. Unlike previous online financial gaming systems, this is decentralized with 64 contributors helping in determining the value of the tokens. Gamers are hoping that these changes he has created will succeed in reducing fraud. If that happens, it should reduce the trepidation in the market regarding virtual currency and might be the key step to make online gaming a financial opportunity for players.

George Soros is a Philanthropic Businessman with a Passion for Democracy

George Soros was born in Hungary and he lived there during the Nazi Occupation. During this time people lived in closed societies and that is why he appreciates the freedom that comes with living in an open society. He studied in London after he fled Budapest. After he completed his education, he moved to the United States to start his career and as fate would have it, he became a successful businessman. George Soros has his own hedge fund and is a famous billionaire, mostly because of the millions he has channeled to Democrats and the causes they work towards. George Soros started Open Society Foundation to assist different projects operating in various capacities all over the world. This has been the largest beneficiary of his funds. He has channeled eighteen billion dollars towards this Foundation to date. This money was given to this Foundation over time and its accumulated total is what got it to the second position in the list of United States’ philanthropic organizations.

Over 3 decades ago is when Open Society Foundation was founded. It stands for human rights and democracy in over 120 countries although it has recently been focusing on the United States. George has invested in some programs that protect people from police abuse and the ones that stand for the rights of lesbians and gays. This Foundation also played a great part in contributing towards medical centers that were supporting the Ebola outbreak 3 years ago. Since he is a strong believer in democracy, he promoted peace through funding programs that were working towards peace after the 2016 elections that had created some sort of friction among people. For these acts of peace, he donated 10 million dollars to stop any sort of violence that was happening. During the recent election, he gave a huge chunk of money to the Democratic Party to support them. Hillary Clinton was among his beneficiaries. After the elections, Open Society Foundation, found a new urgent matter to attend to, curbing fraud in voting.

Apart from watching and following politics very closely, George Soros focuses on analyzing the market trends. In the early 1990s, he studied the British Pound very closely before placing a bet against it. From this bet alone, he gained one billion dollars. This made the pound lose value and this is what earned him the recognition of “the man who managed to break the Bank of England”. As he learned the art of analysis and his wealth grew, he started the Open Society Foundation. This was in 1984 in Hungary. The name of this foundation was borrowed from Karl Popper, a philosopher, who stood for respect, freedom of speech and governance that was democratic. Through the years, George Soros continued to channel funds to the Open Society Foundation with the intention of supporting democracy and the rights of humans. Since he has the urge and will to continue standing for what he believes in, he will be channeling another two billion dollars to the same organization in the near future. Soros Fund Management continues to monitor the investments that Open Society Foundation is making in the markets it serves.

The Sweetgreen dream team

Fast food chains are not always the first thing that comes to mind when trying to eat healthily. In fact, most of us dream to have a restaurant that is convenient as a fast food chain with the added benefit of not clotting our arteries with fat. Sweetgreen’s is here to the rescue, with its yummy salad recipes and quick service.

But how can Sweetgreen compete with the established major chains? Answer: With an unconventional business model.

Cofounder Nathaniel Ru majored in Business at Georgetown University. While in accounting class, Nathaniel bonded with his classmates who shared his passion for entrepreneurship. It was then, when Nathanial and his former Georgetown University peers, set out with a goal to make healthy food more accessible to those in a hurry.

Setting their location in the collegiate dense part of Georgetown, the founders had managed to survive the winter, a time when the town empties as students leave for winter break. From the time they set their first location in Georgetown, the company has successfully grown to 27 locations across six states.

From the beginning, these founders knew that healthy fast food is a niche that needs a sound strategy to pull off effectively. Fast food is a niche that requires extensive planning since the resources available at each region would differ in supply and demand.

So, the team had to take unconventional routes. For instance, to help them focus on the customer’s needs, the founders decided that there will be no centralized headquarters for the company.

Not having a static headquarters, the company founders are able to occupy their time at the restaurant’s locations to gauge what the consumer would really want from their experience. From their feedback, they learned that the customer just wanted the freshest ingredients at the lowest prices.

So, the team optimized their menu items to fit what was locally available near the restaurant. Since the menu is different for each location, this gives every Sweetgreen the opportunity to take advantage of the supply and demand conundrum.

Although their menu might not be consistent, their values of leaving the customer with a memorable experience are.
