Will Lovaganza Be A Game Changer?

There is an upcoming event called Lovaganza. Readers may have heard of this through the winds over the past several years. The event was originally designed to launch in 2015, but the emergence of new, improved technology pushed designers to waylay unveiling. This is likely a wise move, considering what Lovaganza has boasted as reported by a recent Yahoo Finance press release. Apparently Lovaganza will feature 3-D without the need for any kind of glasses. The technology involved in that is hard to imagine, but it certainly wasn’t available in 2015, and so it makes a good deal of sense that Lovaganza pulled back on deployment for a few years.

They’ve started a new plan at Lovaganza, and that involves a traveling showcase to take place in 2017. That showcase will include the new, improved 3-D innovations promised in the four month exhibition of 2020. By the by, that exhibition is going to be featured in eight strategic locations across the world, and last for four months. The idea on j-scott.com is to get as many of the people of the world through as possible. Exhibitions will take place, there will be live events, interactive media, and the new cinema option which is three dimensions, but doesn’t require glasses. America, Asia, Africa, Europe, The Middle East, and Oceania all represent regions where Lovaganza festivals will take place.

Reminiscent of the World’s Fair events of yesteryear, marketing has started vamping up with a vengeance in the twilight before the dawn of next year’s traveling show. Currently, there’s a trilogy of films planned that will be feature-length and showcase the new technology. Principal photography on these films has already been completed on several continents.

The production of a feature film is no small feat, and requires countless man-hours and countable dollars that are usually in the millions. It’s hard to guess what the cost of this new technology, and its innovation, will mean to the filming process of Lovaganza.

Lovaganza is set to be a huge event that will be historical in its scope. The cultures of the world will be celebrated, and technology will be featured that will hopefully boggle the mind. Whatever happens in the next several years, it’s clear that Lovaganza has already generated exceptional interest. Being featured in a press release on Yahoo Finance certainly isn’t something seen in a casual festive effort. Neither is a worldwide traveling pre-event marketing putsch, or a four month global show. Lovaganza promises to be amazingly intense.

Class Dojo Started Off With Great Success

As a relatively new platform, and shortly after releasing, Class Dojo has managed to achieve high levels of success. Two former teachers teamed up together to build an application to better the overall quality of education worldwide. Within the short amount of time the program has been available, Class Dojo has been changing the way teachers and parents are able to communicate and educate students in school. It has also improved the quality of many school environments into more positive ones. Seeing such wide use in such a short time with a heavy and competitive market is remarkable by today’s standards. This is partly due to the companies unique approach and entirely free software, which has enabled them to reach schools all over the United States. Even though Class Dojo has a humble beginning, they have managed to surpass the majority of other companies that came out much before them.

Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don are two former teachers who co founded Class Dojo together. They noticed some issues that were not being addressed in the school environment and decided to take action. Most of which was the severely lacking levels of communication not only between parent and teacher, but for students as well. Most children today are responsible for the communication that happens between their teacher and parent as well as themselves. This is very problematic when discussing things such as performance and overall progress. While teachers can arrange meetings with parents, it is usually only once per semester or quarter, which leaves too much information left out. The founders of Class Dojo believed communication needed a big improvement and that it might be possible with the right tool. Class Dojo was built to fill a gap in the current age of schooling, which is communication.

Once the app was finished and ready to be used, the next challenge for Sam and Liam was spreading awareness in order to get Class Dojo into more school rooms across the world. This is difficult when one considers the number of schools and how many competitors there is on the market for educational tools. Still, Class Dojo had appealing innovations of its own that allowed it to reach the limelight, and today the platform is being used by nearly two thirds of all schools within all of the United States.

Madison Street Capital’s President Charles Botchway Thinks Hedge Fund Investors Are Expecting Too Much

Charles Botchway is one of the co-founders of Chicago-based Madison Street Capital. Madison Street Capital focuses on small and medium size mergers and acquisitions around the world. Botchway and COO Anthony Marsala have won numerous awards in the financial industry, so people listen when the men talk about investment banking. Botchway and Marsala had an excellent year in 2015. Madison Street Capital closed 42 hedge fund deals in 2015 compared to 32 transactions in 2014. The volume of the 2015 transactions was 27 percent higher than 2014. Botchway and Marsala think 2016 will be a better year than 2015, but many hedge fund investors are expecting to make a 9 percent return on their investments, and that may be too optimistic.

Mr. Botchway thinks smaller hedge fund managers are trying to attract new capital, and they are functioning below projected portfolio capacity levels. Overall, hedge fund managers are experiencing higher operational costs, and there is a lot of pressure to reduce management fees. These issues are forcing all hedge fund managers to consider strategic alternatives. But Madison Street Capital is still performing as expected and management fees have not been impacted so far.

But a survey of 400 investors in other funds, expects at least a 9 percent net return on their investment, but in 2014 there was a net decline of 2 percent when all hedge fund activity was analyzed, according to data tracker eVestment. The survey also showed that 5 percent of hedge fund investors expect an 18 percent return, and 32 percent expect a return between 15 and 17 percent. There is a dramatic difference between what hedge fund investors expect and what hedge funds are delivering, and that mismatch is creating uneasiness in the industry. Many hedge fund managers have lower their fees, and they have offered their investors other perks to compensate for the difference in net returns.Some hedge fund managers are offering investors alternative mutual funds in order to tap into a bigger investor pool.

Hedge fund managers are feeling the pressure and shift in the industry. The old hedge fund performances that beat stock market returns, and provided a hedge against stock market downturns are not there anymore. The old fee base was 2 percent of assets managed and a 20 percent performance fee on top on that. That model is fading fast.

The Madison Street Capital hedge fund and other hedge funds like Element Capital Management and Perceptive Advisors are still outperforming the industry in terms of returns. But there were some big losers last year. Pershing Square Capital’s returns dropped 20 percent last year, and Greenlight Capital also dropped 20 percent. No one is sure how the hedge fund industry will do in 2016, but Botchway is still optimistic based on the assets he manages.
