Grants for students
Jason Hope takes investing in the future very seriously. One way he has decided to make that investment is to provide grants to high school seniors and college students who have come up with a solid technological idea. Hope understands that coming up with funding to back a brilliant idea is not always easy. He is giving students the opportunity to get the funding to help make their innovation a reality. After the students submit a plan, Hope personally reviews the plan and decides if the student will receive a grant ranging from 500 to 5000 dollars.
Everyone can be a philanthropist
Hope focuses a big portion of his life on philanthropy, especially the work that is being done at the SENS foundation. He believes that everyone can be a philanthropist with a little guidance. According to Hope, the first step is finding what exactly it is that you are passionate about. Next, are looking to help out an organization on a local level or national? Are you going to be donating money or your time, or are you able to do both? Lastly, do your homework and talk to the people within your circle and see what organizations they support. One person can make a difference.
OSI Food Solutions, which won the 2016 Globe of Honour by the British Safety Council because of it excellence in the area of environmental safety, has met impressive business milestones under President and COO, David McDonald’s senior tutelage as well as their CEO, Sheldon Lavin.
In August of 2016, OSI Food Solutions decided to purchase Baho Foods, a Dutch food company. Purchasing Baho foods was part of OSI’s strategy to add to its European business line. This acquisition, as COO, David McDonald emphasized, provides OSI Food solutions with a larger business presence in Europe. With the Baho purchase, OSI Food Solutions inherited exactly five subsidiaries with important processing plants in Germany and in the Netherlands. These five subsidiaries, which are located in Europe, include Gelderland Frischwaren, Q Smart Life, Bakx Foods, Henri van de Bilt, and Vital Convenience.
OSI Food Solutions has also initiated a plan to double its chicken production capacity in Spain. The implementation of a high volume production line in the European city of Toledo has significantly increased their production number to 24 thousand tons. This production number doubled from the original, 12 thousand ton limit. Currently OSI produces a total of 45 thousand tons of pork, chicken, and beef products. This new production initiative will also be a positive outcome for the Spanish city, and the general area, by bringing in more jobs to compensate for the scaling up of its production. These meat processing facilities, located in Toledo, Spain, have been in service since 1990. OSI Spain, which is a subsidiary of OSI Food Solutions, will manage this facility.
Jose Maria del Rio, the managing director of OSI Spain, noted that there has been an increase in the desire for chicken products over the past few years. Because of this increased need for chicken, OSI has taken extra steps to ensure that this new facility improves its sustainability and energy efficiency, moving forward. OSI Spain currently recycles heat that the equipment at these facilities use. This updated equipment has allowed OSI Spain to reduce its consumption of electricity by a fifth of what it was before enacting these key energy and sustainability changes.
OSI Food Solutions, which is headquartered in Aurora, Illinois, is a privately held company with close to 60 facilities, and work sites located in 16 countries. OSI Food Solutions has been in business since 1909, and is a $6 billion dollar company.

In an increasingly connected marketplace, successful businesses need to retain and attract customers and clients from around the world. With razor thin margins and tight competition very difficult to find a way to pursue these opportunities without taking on considerable expenses when it comes to banking payment processing.
Traditional banking comes loaded with fees, making it very difficult to break out of your company’s home nation. In many cases, international companies will open subsidiary offices and operations in order to take advantage of these markets. While this may work for the largest companies, smaller companies often struggle to get the investment capital needed for such an endeavor.
This is where smaller, boutique payment processors can bridge the gap between full-service banking and the lighter needs of small businesses. Companies such as PSI Pay focus entirely on payment processing rather than traditional banking. By doing things this way they are able to avoid costly regulation and other expenses, allowing them to keep costs down and their prices low.
Because they focus on payment processing rather than banking PSY Pay is able to offer payment transfers to any country in the world as well as instant currency changing across 44 world currencies. Companies are able to get instant payment processing without having to hold money from each and every country they do business with.
Another way that PSI Pay is able to reduce costs is to limit the amount of outside transaction processing required. Once a client is set up with PSY Pay they are able to make instant transfers to any other client on the network. Not only do the funds clear instantly, it comes at a much lower cost the competitors such as Visa.
This also includes transfers between departments within your own company. This can be useful for payroll purposes, as well as for allocating funds between departments. Executive leadership can ensure that each apartment is allocated their budget instantly and without additional expense.
These main corporate accounts are what are the main benefits that set Psy Pay apart from every other payment processor on the market. Rather than simply act as a necessary service they choose to add additional value to a business management, helping their clients reduce their own management costs as well.
As time goes on traditional banking is becoming less and less relevant to modern-day business. It really does seem as though small payment providers are finally taking hold and disrupting this centuries-old industry.
