The RealReal Might be Going for an IPO

Julie Wainwright, CEO of luxury consignment store The RealReal has raised funds for her business several times. She has indicated that she would eventually pursue an IPO but that it would be far into the future. Most likely after a round of private financing. Perhaps now is that time.

Several sources informed Recode that The RealReal is currently seeking to raise 100 million dollars in funding from investors. This amount would be 70 million dollars less than what The RealReal has previously raised, and we are left wondering if this is the pre-IPO round of raising funds. The popularity of the luxury site that focuses on selling luxury goods that have been pre-owned from brands like Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Cartier, and Hermes is a good indicator that The RealReal will succeed in raising the new funds. This new infusion of funds could indicate that The RealReal is getting ready for an IPO.

However, there could be other reasons for The realReal’s newest round of raising funds. It could be that the company seeks to grow larger and needs capital to finance that growth. The RealReal might have analyzed the market and found that there is a demand for pre-owned luxury goods. Alternatively, they could need more capital to prove to investors that The RealReal would work in the long term as a standalone business. So far Wainwright has not commented on the reason for seeking new investors and raising capital.

The RealReal is a consignment store that focuses on selling pre-owned luxury goods. They receive items from the seller and once they have sold the item The RealReal shares 50 to 60 percent of the profits with the original seller. Though The RealReal has an in-house authentication team, a well-made fake has slipped through their authentication system.

The RealReal focused on selling women’s luxury fashion when the company was first founded but has since expanded into selling jewelry, menswear, art, and home décor. The company recently opened a pop-up store in Las Vegas and a brick and mortar location. The RealReal is not the only pre-owned consignment store. ThredUp, Tradesy, and Poshmark all sell pre-owned items. Though each store has a different model for conducting business and some sell new items.

The RealReal is collaborating with luxury brand sellers. The companies that once found The RealReal threatening have now realized that The RealReal is driving sales of their brands.

Rick Scott’s Super PAC Questioned By End Citizens United

The left-leaning PAC, End Citizens United recently made a major splash in the media and across Washington by claiming former Florida Governor Rick Scott was attempting to sidestep campaign finance regulations by using the New Republican PAC to back his campaign for the Senate at the 2018 Midterms. ECU President Tiffany Muller has been a constant campaigner and watchdog for fairer election finance regulations following the 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision; among the issues identified by Muller and End Citizens United is the problem of corporate groups given the same campaign financing rights as humans.

Former GOP Governor Rick Scott established the New Republican Super PAC in an attempt to further the work of President Donald Trump among young people but has recently faced a backlash after the goals of the groups were altered to suit his own campaign plans. The New Republican is now being targeted by End Citizens United as leaders of ECU state Scott bypassed the limitations placed on Senate candidates in terms of “testing the waters” donations before candidacy is officially announced.

Paul Bozzi, an End Citizens United official stated he believed Scott was simply looking to bypass financing rules and not fully disclose the depth of the funding he was receiving from special interest groups, mega-donors, and grassroots Republicans. One of the main sticking points for the traditional PAC which limits donations from members to just $5,000 is the fact Scott is still listed as the Chair of the New Republican PAC in a clear flouting of the election financing regulations.

End Citizens United was established in 2015 with a clear aim of bringing to an end the rules changed following the 2010 Citizens United decision which allows almost unlimited financing to be given to candidates during election cycles. Alongside the decision to target the campaign of Rick Scott, ECU is also looking to target a list of donors christened the “Big Money 20” who work closely with special interest groups. The list of Republicans accepting funding from special interest groups was recently updated to add Pennsylvanian Representative Keith Rothfus to its ranks with ECU President Tiffany Muller stating Rothfus was known for placing the needs of special interest groups above those of his constituents.

DR. SAAD SAAD-THE HIGHLY EXPERIENCED PEDIATRIC SURGEON.

Dr. Saad Saad is a highly experienced and knowledgeable pediatric surgeon in Eatontown, New Jersey. He has performed numerous successful surgical operations in the course of his career. He has a bachelor’s degree in medicine from The University of Cairo’s medical school and performs surgical operations at both Jersey Shore and Monmouth medical centers.Dr. Saad Saad has received several Board certifications. This certifications are proofs that he has met the required and recognized national standards of knowledge, expertise and education.

Saad had been at the forefront in looking for ways of improving the procedures and methods. He always sought means of reducing the risk and pain experienced by his patients during surgery. Due to his determination, Saad Saad has developed a number of new procedures in carrying out pediatric operations and also patented two inventions. Dr. Saad has helped many United States patients during his forty years in performing complex pediatric surgeries. He has not only been a source of hope for the United States patients but also children and teenage kids in Holyland, including free surgical procedure missions for deprived children in Jerusalem and at the West Bank.

Medical catheters are tubular apparatus that have a number of functions. They are normally inserted into the body of a patient to either treat some medical problems or to help during surgery. They can also be responsible for providing access to gadgets, fluids and gases and other tasks depending on the catheter type used. Catheters can be placed either permanently or temporally in the body of a patient.

Pediatric surgeons usually have to track the catheter positioning to ensure that it’s at the right location. X-rays were done traditionally to track the positioning of the catheter and this put patients at a risk due to constant exposure to radiations. The alternative to X-ray was the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). These machines were huge and hence not portable which made them an impartial alternative.

Saad Saad came up with a special machine that did not require any scan to locate the position of the catheter. This machine uses electromagnetic energy to identify the catheter’s location since the catheter itself has a permeable material electromagnetically positioned in the coil. The pediatrician therefore, places the device outside the body of the patient which in turn scans and thereafter a signal is sent to the coil which then illuminates some lights externally which then enables the doctor to know that the external identifying machine is directly above the catheter. This device is small and portable making it fit for usage if an emergency occurs. Saad Saad also invented the suction-irrigation device which prevents body liquids from abstracting the doctors view while using an endoscope to view areas in the body containing fluids like the esophagus, lungs and intestines.

Rick Shinto: What it takes to lead a Medical Business

In order for a business to run effectively, it is important that the leadership of that company is confident and always available to address the needs of the customers and all of the employees. This is especially true for healthcare companies, with the many laws and regulations they have to follow, along with having to create tailor-made solutions for anyone that they serve. In these types of businesses, a leader must be strong yet precise and analytical and is crucial to lead the company. One such man, named Rick Shinto, serves in this role of a company known as InnovaCare.

 

Rick Shinto’s background.

 

Before working at InnovaCare, Rick Shinto had spent many years in the healthcare industry in both management and non management positions. Starting as an intern, Shinto eventually rose to become vice president of medical management, then went on to become Cal Optima’s CMO, or chief medical officer, then he spent time as the CEO of Aveta Inc. Shinto has also written many articles and briefs about Healthcare and the medical industry, with a focus on leading healthcare companies and dealing with all the changes that occur in the industry.

 

Benefits for InnovaCare.

 

Under Shinto’s leadership, InnovaCare has become one of the most innovative and well-structured healthcare companies in the United States. The strategies used in running InnovaCare are constantly changing to adapt and suit the current healthcare market. Their business model is built on maintaining provider-patient relationships backed with a comprehensive monitoring system. This is done for quality assurance, because InnovaCare has a philosophy of “patients first”. It is this philosophy that helped InnovaCare build a Medicare Advantage program with over 200000 participant in Puerto Rico.

 

Other executives to look out for

 

In addition to Rick Shinto, there are other executives who can be considered responsible or the strong position of InnovaCare. One example is the current CAO of InnovaCare, Penelope Kokkinides. Kokkinides, who is a former COO of both InnovaCare Health and of Aveta Inc., has the necessary experience with government programs like Medicaid and Medicare, allowing her to design comprehensive programs for clients and employees alike.

 

Is Shervin Pishevar Trying To Hide Something?

Shervin Pishevar claims that he is exposing companies, but could he merely be hiding something?

Pishevar went on a 21-hour Twitter rant about many things money-related.

Because each of his topics had to do with money, many are calling it a “financial storm,” rather than simply a “tweet storm.”

No matter what kind of storm it is, it arose suddenly.

Before this, Shervin Pishevar has never been known for getting on social media to spew content for 21 hours straight.

Pishevar did take a break during his tweet storm, however, to enjoy dinner.

We all need to fuel our bodies if we want to continue endlessly sharing our thoughts, which is what Pishevar called his tweets: simply “thoughts.”

Why did these thoughts arise, however?

We could speculate that they arose due to Shervin Pishevar being in the media.

Pishevar currently has sexual assault cases against him.

These cases include rape.

If Pishevar is wanting the media to give him some space regarding these cases, it would be natural that he would try to put other topics in the spot light.

The question, however, is are any of the topics worthy of real debate?

Sure, Pishevar spoke about Bitcoin, and many people have money invested in Bitcoin or want to invest.

Pishevar also spoke about big businesses that are making it harder for small businesses to grow.

Pishevar is merely giving us thoughts, however. He is simply giving us his views, his opinions.

None of these opinions are capable of bringing about any real change because the world needs the companies that he mentioned.

His Bitcoin rant won’t scare people into neither selling nor buying Bitcoin because everyone has his own opinion and “thoughts” concerning the future of Bitcoin.

It appears that these rants are indeed random thoughts.

While many do indeed feel that Pishevar went on this rant just to keep the media away from what is happening in his personal life, no one knows another’s true intentions; we don’t know for sure why Shervin Pishevar went on this rant.

It is possible that he ranted simply because these are topics that hold his interest.
