But you’ll also find her on many of the most prestigious stages, where her message is sought out by the likes of the University of Warwick, Yale, and the United Nations. Dos Santos recognizes the future of business, and how commerce will change with advances technology (Behance). 

She acknowledges that planting the seeds in women of pursuing work in business technology has a clear path to success in the workforce. Women have the power to change society beginning from education within their own families. Consistent, sustained growth is the key to driving Africa’s women forward in the business world. Isabel dos Santos tries ensuring the women of Africa have equal access to education, training, and job opportunities as their male counterparts also plays a role in the success of women moving forward. To do this, she has committed herself to “planting seeds” around Africa.

Greg Blatt Enjoys Business Success Wherever He Goes

Greg Blatt is a highly educated, brilliant businessman who has experienced extraordinary success in a number of different markets in a wide variety of different positions.

Most recently, he took the helm at dating sites Match Group, Tinder, and IAC, and led them to not only increase their revenues and userbases, but what with as CEO for these companies at various points between 2009-2017, he helped them to become leaders in the very competitive online dating industry. When he was not serving as CEO of these companies, Greg Blatt served as executive vice president in general counsel; executive chairman; and chairman at times. 

Greg Blatt was a success in the fields he’s worked in ever since his university days. He earned his undergraduate degree from Colgate University, majoring in English language, literature/letters, and economics. Later, he attended Columbia Law School, earning his Doctor of Law degree. Then he would work at two different law firms as an associate before really taking it big time when Blatt served at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. 

He held several positions with the company, with perhaps his most noteworthy job there serving as executive vice president in general counsel and business affairs. Some in the business sector may wonder why Greg Blatt continues to explore opportunities with different companies. However, they do recognize his need to push his boundaries, seeking out the most he can achieve (Consumerist). 

These ‘doubters’ acknowledge that the drive he shows is vital in helping to become a forward-thinking, successful leader.Modern technology that he implemented with Tinder and other dating applications opens up many doors in different avenues if he should elect to go in any number of different directions.

Now, it wasn’t an immediate jump from one big accomplishment to the next one. In fact, Mr. Blatt had a brief ‘real world’ time between getting his degree from Colgate and attending Columbia. In this time he took a few years off and bussed tables, painted houses, and bartended in Telluride, Colorado, Budapest, Reims, France, and San Francisco. Perhaps this time spent between universities spent out in the world working these jobs gave him some real-world perspective and helped him to focus on what he aspired to become in the future.

American Addiction Centers Files Suit Against the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers

American Addiction Centers (AAC), an addiction treatment group, has brought an action against a trade group, the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers (NAATP), for engaging practices that are anti-competitive and defamatory in nature. In the complaint, AAC asserted that the NAATP violated the Lanham Act, an act prohibiting the misrepresentation of goods, services or commercial activities.

The American Addiction Centers is suing the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers on the following theories: defamation, tortious interference, breach of contract, constructive fraud, breach of the duty of good faith and fair dealing as well as violation of the Tennessee Consumer Protection Act.

it is claimed that the NAATP engaged in a coordinated effort to prevent the AAC from being able to advertise on Google by misrepresenting the company as a “bad actor” to an organization that is given the authority to certifies addiction-center advertising on the Google search platform.

It is further claimed that the American Addiction Centers and its two directory websites, rehabs.com and recovery.org, were blocked from advertising on Google as a result of the NAATP’s efforts.

Moreover, it is claimed that the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers intentionally excluded the AAC from membership by amending its ethics standards without notifying it of the changes.

One such efforts on the NAATP’s part involved its lobbing of Google to remove any addiction treatment group that are labeled bad actors from being able to secure addiction advertising. As a result, Google created LegitScript whose goal was to eliminate unethical and deceptive marketing practices on Google by preventing any addiction providers that are not LegitScript-certified from bidding for ad space. AAC maintains that it has never engaged in any unethical or deceptive marketing practices.

Despite this, the NAATP not only made efforts to influence both Google and LegitScript but also falsely represented that the American Addiction Centers was a “bad actors” in addiction marketing.

This resulted in the AAC being denied LegitScript certification with the result that AAC was not allowed to purchase search ads on Google. Subsequently, LegitScript was adopted by Facebook and Bing, which made AAC’s purchase of search advertising virtually impossible. When AAC tried to work with LegitScript to resolve the problem, it was rebuffed.

As a result of the denial of access to Google search ads, AAC experienced a drop in third-party providers buying ad space on its two directory websites, considerably less third-party opportunities in its diagnostic lab testing business and a decrease in the number of patients admitted to its treatment centers. As a result of the NAATP’s repeated efforts at defaming its reputation, advertisers left its directory websites in fear of retaliation or blacklisting by the NAATP or LegitScript.

And from this singular private flight, the idea for JetSmarter came about.

Fortress Investment Group Has Introduced Open-End Fund To Investors

Fortress Investment Group has introduced direct-lending to boost the amount of money the company has been lending to investors. This is a lending strategy that is mostly focused on ensuring that customers will be getting more credit from the company. Although customers are the ones who are likely to gain from this innovation, Fortress Group will be able to establish itself as one of the most profitable companies to the interested investors.

Recent reports indicate that Fortress Investment Group is expected to launch another funding opportunity that is designed explicitly for intellectual properties, solving real estate debts, and helping in the purchase of aircraft leases. The owner of Fortress Group, SoftBank Group Corporation, is expected to close the direct-lending for 42 billion shortly. However, the $2 billion funding will not only be used to buy real estate debts but will also play a significant role in buying other profitable ventures.

Another product that has been on the raise at Fortress Investment Group is an open-end asset fund, which has already attracted $500 million. Recent trends show that Fortress Group is drawn to the private credit market due to the higher yields from investments. This has caused significant shifts in the operations of the company. Fortress Group has already moved its operations from pension plans, sovereign wealth funds, and insurance companies.

So, what is a private credit market? This is money given to various organizations for investment opportunities after careful negotiations between the two parties. Careful negotiations have helped Fortress Investment Group to make huge profits than what it was making when it was trading its funds in public markets. In most cases, private credit markets may include structural lending, bonds, loans, and direct lending, among others.

This has made open-end assets to be a darling for many investors because they can pull their resources together and get a huge investment that is not common in other funds. Fortress Investment Group is using the open-end fund to help investors to invest in a low-cost and low-barrier market. Most of the public markets are known to be costly and high-barrier markets, which mean that only few investors can invest in these funds.
