It has been the common practice of venture capitalists for some time now to invest in Asian and U.S. markets; Europe is getting attention from them now.
Big names like Google, Microsoft, Intel and Salesforce.com have begun searching Western Europe to find mobile payment firms, data-mappers and the like, and many other traditional venture capitalists are eager to include European startups to their list of investments.
The reason behind this move is clear. European startups are generally far cheaper than those created in the U.S. Even large companies, such as Salesforce.com and Microsoft, are always looking for a way to save money while gaining access to excellent, highly trained talent and unique ideas even if that means leaving home to find it.
With the scarcity of venture capitalists in Europe, startups are eager for an infusion of American money to help them prepare for going global.
James Dondero is co-founder and President of Highland Capital, a leading global venture capital firm involved with investing in European startups. With more than 30 years in credit and equity markets, the majority of his focus has been on high-yielding, distressed investments.

The company offers award winning products like CLOs, private equity funds, hedge funds, ETFs, REITS, and mutual funds.

He is very active in philanthropic activities and supports veteran’s affairs and innovations in education.

Our pets become our four legged children. So it is only natural to want them to have the best diet we can provide them with. Dog parents all over the country are obsessed about the quality of dog food that are on the market shelves. We look for fresh ingredients and no harmful preservatives. One company in Bethlehem Pennsylvania is a fast growing innovator in the fresh pet food industry. Freshpet Inc. produces the only industrial refrigerated pet food on the market. Pet food is a $23.7 billion dollar industry on Amazon, and traditional pet food manufacturers are stepping up their marketing to compete with companies like Freshpet and Blue Buffalo Co. These two companies promote the health and fresh movement from human to pet. Cesar Home Delight sells traditional named meals like “beef stroganoff” with the eat like your owner campaign. Other pet food companies are promoting from farm-to-table trend with healthy harvest brands that include blueberries and cranberries in the dogs kibble bowl. Beneful continues the trend by attracting customers with its make-a-meal line of dog food. Purina Store Beneful Wet Dog food comes in a variety of meals. The Tuscan Style Medley is made with beef, carrots, rice and spinach. If Fido feels like a mediterranean dinner tonight, Beneful has that covered too with their Mediterranean Style Medley made with tomatoes, brown rice, lamb and spinach. Beneful keeps Lassies taste buds excited with its chopped blends line. When opening the brightly colored container a blend of chicken, carrots, peas, and wild rice falls out on to the plate. Dogs love the taste and cannot wait for meal time, even the pickiest eaters cannot resist. In addition to nutrients such as folic acid, biotin, calcium, and zinc. Beneful is packed full of vitamin E, B-12, A, and D-3. Beneful dog food is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by The Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO). Some states have adopted the model pet food regulations established by AAFCO, in to state laws. Our pets are family it is only natural to give our pets the most nutritious foods they crave.
I have been working as a veterinarian’s assistant for over two years and I have been introduced to so many different brands of dog food, dog treats, flea treatment, you name it. Any product out there for dogs and cats, I have read about it. At our clinic we use the same products around the clock, unless it is specifically ordered in by a client. Right now on our shelves there is Beneful Dry Food, Beneful Puppy Chow, Beneful Healthy Weight and Incredibites. All of which are extremely healthy for dogs and helps promote a beautiful and healthy lifestyle for dogs of all ages. We do have moments where clients refuse the food on the shelf. That is until we explain to them the great health benefits from their dogs consuming Beneful products. 98% of those clients end up saying to heck with it and give Beneful one try before they judge the company again. I don’t ever try and force it on anyone, but I do suggest them trying it at least once for their family friends sake. Our clinic really never had any specific brand before, but a year ago we decided that we should decide on one particular brand that we would always have in stock and that brand was Beneful. Not only is it the most healthy choice on Facebook for our animal friends, but it is also the most accessible and best priced dog food on the market. All in all it hands down the best yet.

In this innovation, the company has disaggregated optical layer functions and converted them into compact pluggable. The innovation will ensure increased flexibility and cost reductions by 30% at most. We are also the first company to attain 100G carrier Ethernet 2.0 Certification. This certification will enable the company do more deliveries efficiently, with greater scalability and using more reliable channels.

Brad Reifler, CEO of Forefront Capital, is hoping to make investments more available to the middle class. In light of that, his company has announced a “Forefront Income Trust” account he hopes will achieve that goal.
For years only “accredited investors” could make certain investments. This was designed to protect people from bad investments, but to be accredited one must be a corporation, or an individual with an income of $200,000 or a net worth of of more than $1 million.
This precludes most of the public, Reifler said.
His new program will allow non-accredited investors to have access to the same lucrative investments that the one percent have. The rules were put in place 30 years ago, and since then there has developed more oversight and control in investing. Instead of requiring a person to have a certain amount of assets, the new requirements will be that a person know about investing.
In the new system a person’s education, credentials, experience and things like this would be primary consideration. There could also be a financial sophistication test invented at some point.
The new investment Reifler is creating will allow a minimum investment of $2,500 that can be withdrawn every quarter. He said this would open more opportunities for the middle class.
There were two key events that led Reifler to want to find this way for investors. The first thing that happened was he created a college savings account for his daughter, and that ended up less than what he originally invested. The second thing was finding very limited options when he wanted to help his father in law invest his savings. He discovered investment opportunities were limited for those that were not the wealthiest people.
His About.me says that Reifler started his own investment company out of college, and that firm was sold to REfco in 2000. He founded Pali Capital in 1995, and was CEO until 2008. That company grew to the point of having $200 million per year in revenue and offices around the world. He started Forefront Management Group in 2009.
Reifler graduated from Bowdoin College with a degree in economics and political science. Reifler Trading Company was the business he started after graduating. His first business specialized in global derivatives. Reifler is now described as a serial entrepreneur, and expanding investment opportunities is his latest venture. His latest venture is designed to help more people get involved in investing, and while there is some risk, Reifler said he has safeguards in place to protect investors and customers.
“I would like to be known as a safe place where people can find investment alternatives,” Reifler said. “I’d like to bring this entire investment complexity to everybody so that they can save for their futures.” More of his investment tips appear on Reuters, where they post several articles about Brad’s career.
