Freedompop slated to arrive in Spain this summer

Originally reported in Mobile World Live, FreedomPop is bringing its MVNO service to Spain this summer by way of the application WhatsApp. Utilizing the technology, messaging and calling will be completely free regardless of usage. As it stands, users get up to 500mb of data free with upgrades ranging from $9.99 to $59.99.

Currently the company is only available in the US and UK, but 31 additional countries are set to be offered service with beta registration available on a first come-first serve basis. This is a result from the $109 million dollars in funding they’ve raised to expand in such markets as Asia, South America and Europe.

According to a recent review, FreedomPop has said over 70 percent of mobile users in Spain use WhatsApp and accounts for 90 percent of the countries texting. Co-Founder and COO Steven Sesar stated the company has “completely cannibalized traditional mobile services in Spain and shaped a unique opportunity for companies looking to embrace the new OTT world we live in,”.

They estimate the amount of subscribers they will obtain in Spain to be between 500,000 and 1,000,000.

Martin Lustgarten Show Clients How To Make Money

Investment banking can be a tricky business. You can win big – or, you could lose your shirt if you put your money in the wrong hands. Basically, investment banks create capital for companies, corporations or private citizens with deep pockets. The banks that offer investment services are usually offshoots or subsidiaries of larger banks. Besides investing, they provide a number of functions like underwriting debt, assisting in acquisitions or strategizing how a business should be reorganized.

 

During the 2008 banking crisis, a number of investment bank collapsed; some were saved by Congress. Notably, Lehman Brothers was one of the largest and most recognizable companies that went bankrupt. Several others such as Fannie Mae, Deutsche Bank, Merrill Lynch and AIG came perilously close. The ramification of the near collapse can still be felt today.

 

Hedge fund advisor Martin Lustgarten gives sound advise all of his clients. He invests his money both at home and abroad. “There are many places around the world where investing can be very profitable. There are some places where you could lost it all,” according to Lustgarten. When you open an new portfolio, finding the best place to park your money is the first goal, according to Lustgarten.

 

He has a good eye for investing and has made his clients a ton of money more often than not. “Keeping your clients happy is job one,” says Lustgarten. Follow him on Twitter to keep up with his news and events.

HRF’s Thor Halvorssen Tells FOX News: Democratic Socialist Over Dictatorship Policies

The Human Rights Foundation founder is quick to assert to FOX News that socialism is a violation of basic human rights. Then many might ask, why did Thor Halvorssen just write the largest contribution allowable to the campaign of democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders?

 

To the HRF President and CEO, it’s quite simple, and he explained it to FOX’ Trish Regan duringThe Intelligence Report. Halvorssen has a larger problem with the two front-runners Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, because they both favor dictatorship policies, Trump for aligning himself with Russia’s Putin and Hillary accepting multi millions of dollars from dictatorships around the world.

 

“I would rather have a democratic socialist than a supporter of dictators in the White House,” Halvorssen stated.

 

Halvorssen believes that to end poverty, one must create more wealth by encouraging the rule of the free markets, but he also explains that democratic socialism can exist. As long as the branches of government are held responsible, there is separation of power and constitutional rights, then this aspect of socialism is alright.

 

When countries exist under the mask of socialism, claiming to help the people but instead take over and loot the country, then it is unacceptable, Thor Halvorssen emphasized to Regan. He used the South American country of Venezuela as an example.

 

“The government decides prices are going to be a certain way. Because they set the prices, what ends up happening, massive lay-offs. What you have now coming up is a humanitarian crisis,” Halvorssen stated.

 

Halvorssen knows plenty about Venezuela since his father was taken in as a political prisoner there. In addition, his mother was shot by the Hugo Chavez regime, and a first cousin is currently jailed in Venezuela under similar circumstances.

 

A human rights advocate and film producer, Halvorssen founded the Human Rights Foundation (HRF) in the spring of 2005.

 

Alexei Beltyukov’s Highly Acclaimed Project Named Solvy

Alexei Belyukov’s reputation as a philanthropist is widely known in Russia and around the world. He is a graduate of an MBA degree from the INSEAD business school. He established the Russian Alumni Scholarship to help out students of their appreciated alma mater and $150,000 has already been pledged. The goal of the Russian Alumni Scholarship is to help other Russian students by helping them financially while attending INSEAD. Alexei Beltyukov personally uses the social media online such as Twitter to spread the seeds of his philanthropic way of life. He does acknowledge that his studies at INSEAD were fundamental to his many achievements. He is very passionate about valuing and broadening the horizons by enhancing better education for all through his entrepreneurship.

In 2015, Beltyukov was appointed as CEO to SOLVY, the online math tutor for solving real-world problems. While still in its early phase, SOLVY is bound to become the learning program of choice for students with not-so-good math solving abilities. SOLVY embraces the progressive thinking on growth mindset, encouraging the students to make mistakes and learn from them. It allows teachers to administer and create learning exercises that are customized in an efficient and effective manner. Beltyukov believes in continued education, and this has become more relevant as the number of EdTech experts and educators increases and more interest is reflected on SOLVY.

Initially, his official website shows he pursued a career in medicine in 1991 after the collapse of the Communist regime which was formerly known as the Soviet Union but he decided to switch and pursue business which has worked out well for him. He founded A-Ventures Ltd., a Russian-based company designated to help other companies within the country if they need financial help.  About.me has more on Alexei’s career, and accomplishments that continue to grow.
