Investor Christopher Burch Talks The Future of Fashion and Technology

From the outside looking in the worlds of technology and fashion might appear to be strange bedfellows but according to longtime investor and entrepreneur Christopher Burch, the industries and the products they create have much more in common than meets the eye. In an article for Engadget.com Burch, the founder of investment firm Burch Creative Capital, makes the case for the common ground that the tech and fashion industries share. He starts by tracing the history of one of the most ubiquitous forms of consumer technology: music tech.

 

 

Even though it might be viewed as archaic today there was a time when the boom box was the cutting edge of music technology. Some might argue that the boom box was among the first developments to turn music into a portable experience. Rather than having to gather around a clunky record player or stationary radio, listeners could take their music with them ostensibly giving them the ability to literally start a party wherever they went. Burch also notes that the boom box gave consumers the ability to both play and record music. Where music technology like the boom box converged with fashion is that the product became fashionable, a utilitarian accessory of sorts that was popular to carry around. Like big hair and popped collars, the boom box of the 80s fell victim to the popularity of another advancement in consumer technology: the Walkman. The walkman built upon the personalized listening experience of the boombox by making music even easier to carry around before it was subsumed by the portable CD player and eventually the iPod.

 

 

Chris Burch is a serial entrepreneur and the Chief Executive Officer and founder of Burch Creative Capital. Burch has a distinctive approach to investment that involves nurturing creative, valuing imagination and providing businesses that are primed for disruption the resources that they need to achieve scale and to be successful. He has worked as investor and entrepreneur for almost four decades and during that time has been involved in 50 businesses.

 

 

Today Burch’s company is applying its innovative approach to investment to wide number of brands including interior design media company Editor At Large, fashion and home decor brand ED by Ellen Degeneres and digital costume jewelry ecommerce brand Baublebar. This wide range of companies represents Burch’s belief in the importance of having a diversified investment portfolio. Burch has also been involved with companies that are part of the finance, hospitality and consumer goods industries.

Josh Verne: How to Get Out of Your Own Way and Succeed in Life and Business

Josh Verne is a United States-based serial entrepreneur with more than two decades of professional experience. For all his professional life, he has worked to found more than 50 companies. He is the current President and Founder of Flocku.com. According to Josh Verne, Vision is the art of viewing what can only be seen by few people. For this reason, he has developed key points to help a young person to get out of the way and succeed in business and life.

 

  1. Be a leader, not a boss

For most people, they engage in the art of being a boss. They neglect the great benefits in the art of leading. On the contrary, business deserves leaders and not bosses. There are two types of management positions in a typical enterprise. For the bosses, they engage in the usage of their power and title to make people do what they want to accomplish. For this reason, they demand respect and do what is in their best interest. On the other hand, the leaders do the opposite of what the bosses do.

 

For the leaders, they earn respect from their juniors. For this reason, they put the respect to the use and the people before their interests. They also use this deserved respect to making the people accomplish their goals. You must first become a leader if you want to succeed in life and business. The leaders never engage in arts of forgetting about forcing their will on others. They also never demand respect. You and your team will always accomplish a lot if you put your team first in every important decision.

 

  1. Everything must be a win

For everyone in a deal, you must see to it that they all win from the deal. In this way, you will gain respect in your dealings. As much as you want money to survive, there are other things needed to make a better environment to do business. Because prosperity requires you to be at free will with everyone, you must never win for yourself alone. You must always strive to achieve a winning situation. Never agree to an open-ended deal that has one side to win. You must always create a win for everyone no matter how freak the situation might be. Yu will become a winner if you stop settling on situations that have one party to win. If you win, your company and followers will win. The society will also win.

Securus Technologies is a prominent provider of government information management solutions, parolee tracking, and detainee communications. The headquarters are situated in Dallas, Texas. In addition, it has four regional offices based in the Dallas metro area and has another one in Atlanta, Georgia.

Securus is a known for its innovative technical solutions and incredible customer service. Securus concentrates more on the needs of law enforcement and correctional facilities.

 

Recently, Securus Technologies corrected the GTL press release that was issued on June 7, 2016. The press release contained several inaccurate and misleading statements. Securus issued a press release to correct as well as clarify the misleading claims. Securus corrected a total of six claims.

 

The President of Securus Technologies, Richard A. Smith, pointed out that GTL was aware that a patent litigation takes a lot of time and money to pursue. Richard Smith was left wondering whether the litigation approach pursued by GTL was working for the benefits of the company especially in such an economic era. Nevertheless, Securus swore to continue with its defense against GTL’s attacks and assert Securus’ patent. Smith affirmed that the defense would go on as far as it is necessary to respond to the current approach used by GTL. Securus views GTL’s approach as one that lacks logic bearing in mind the superiority of Securus and its extensive patent portfolio.

 

Securus reported that it would be pleased to reinstitute its technology challenge with GTL anytime. This firm has offered its technology many times, and their approach works well that the current approach used by GTL, which they issue to the people using press releases that demand several corrections. Securus Technologies received an accreditation and A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.
