This is a fascinating article! It is interesting to read about top venture capital investors who successfully invested in companies that are now, or have been, on @linqtoinc ➡️
#Forbes #AndreesonHorowitz #ChrisDixon #VentureCapital #invest #investing
The other companies mentioned in this article are Coinbase (was available on Linqto prior to its IPO), Dapper and Ripple. Shares of Dapper Labs and Ripple are still available, but not for long. (2/4)
You can also transfer IRA money to Linqto to invest. I encourage you to apply for Accredited Investor status on Linqto, if you have $1 million in assets outside of your home. If you aren’t at Accredited level yet, no worries, I am confident you will get there. (3/4)

Humildade, simplicidade e generosidade sempre foram os meus guias. O dinheiro nunca me mudou, não vai ser agora, aos 59 anos, que eu vou me transformar em algo que não sou.
O patrimônio que me colocou na lista da Forbes nada mais é do que fruto do resultado de quase 36 anos de trabalho junto com uma equipe que acredita na empresa. Por isso, a minha responsabilidade com esses 22 mil colaboradores é cada dia maior.
Tenho certeza que o melhor programa social que existe é o emprego! Quando tivermos um país em que as pessoas possam escolher onde querem trabalhar, porque sobra oportunidade, então teremos uma nação forte e justa. Hoje, sinto que essa é minha verdadeira missão.

¿Recuerdas lo cara que era la telefonía celular antes de que llegara @MovistarMX a México?

Es que antes había un duopolio, bueno, más bien un monopolio de #CarlosSlim, y por eso era tan caro, eso lo hizo millonario, pero entró la competencia y mejoró la oferta.

Breve Hilo: 👇
A cualquiera al que se le hubiera concesionado #Telmex la telefónica estatal, concentrando el monopolio de la telefonía en el país por tantos años, sin control de tarifas se habría hecho magnate.

No hay nada admirable en quien hizo su fortuna cobijado por la enorme corrupción.
#CarlosSlim es prestanombres del expresidente Carlos Salinas, por eso no es coincidencia que sin haber tenido una carrera destacada como empresario, llegó a ser considerado el hombre más rico del mundo después del salinato. ¡Antes vendía seguros, joyas y hasta boletos de lotería!

I am truly grateful for another year, and oh what an impactful 365 days it has been. To our Heavenly King, the One who clothes us with His ‘coat of many colours’, to Him be the glory, the honour, and the praise, this day and eternally. Image
Reflecting on the past year, I would say one of its highlights was the opportunity to share my expressions with the world through the Forbes platform with its veritable visibility in the global public consciousness.
I am humbled by the testimonies that have flooded in speaking of the great impact this showcase has had on businesspersons, political enthusiasts, researchers, and clerical colleagues, in the way they lead and serve. The entire experience has been awe-inspiring in so many ways.

1/7. Indian Billionaires, now 140 in number, almost doubled their wealth in the pandemic year, says Forbes magazine, their combined worth reaching $596 billion (Rs. 44.5 trillion). In a year when GDP contracted 7.7 %. Story link at end of thread.
#Forbes #ambani #Farmers #COVID19
2/7. India’s 140 billionaires account for 0.000014 per cent of the population. But they hold wealth equivalent to 22.7 per cent of our Gross Domestic Product of $ 2.62 trillion, bringing that whole other meaning to the word 'Gross.'
#Forbes #ambani #Farmers #COVID19
3/7. The total wealth of our top 2 $ billionaires, Ambani ($84.5 billion) and Adani ($50.5 billion), is far greater than the gross state domestic product of Punjab ($85.5 billion) or Haryana ($101 billion) whose farmers they stand pitted against.

I fully expect that if Amazon acquires JC Penney, the name JC Penney will disappear and be replaced with Amazon.” @UnicornTrading1 $AMZN
“I've written multiple articles since 2018 predicing & recommending that Amazon acquire JC Penney. Let me be clear. The reason why Amazon would acquire JCP is for the real estate, esp. Class A mall locations. JCP is about the past. Amazon: re-imagining retail. Big difference”
“JC Penney's stores and distribution centers will provide Amazon a starting point to create new experiences for customers, build mixed-use retail, hotel and other facilities.” $JCPNQ $AMZN

#TweetStorm - Expensive or deserves to be Expensive ? 1)One thumb rule for screening expensive companies is Market Cap to Sales or Enterprise Value to Sales. A 10x or more is generally expensive unless the company can grow sales rapidly or has extremely high Net Profit Margins.
2)Another way to look at expensive is if the Market Cap is equal to the Total Sales of the Addressable Market Size. This would lead to company having to launch different products in the future.
3)May not be the approach to take a Sell Decision or a Short Sell Decision. Very few companies can command such high valuations. Thumb Rule is just to review the investment thesis and the quality of the business. If doubts on quality , get out.

At same period the UK Authorities, banks & state owned companies all converged with their plans to take our home, our car & our money, my mother's #DWP welfare benefit was also targeted on several occasions, the worst being what happened at #Adecco #Guardian #TheTimes #GMB
My mother was seeking #employment & arranged an appointment with #OfficeAngels who she was already registered with & had worked for, for years. However, the time & date of the appointment was at a similar time to that of her sign on with the #DWP. #Jobseekersallowance #Jobseekers

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their day jobs properly & decided to take the law into their own hands. It started as a small cover up 12 years ago but has turned into British State Persecution.

#Skynews #BBCNews #DailyMail #Guardian #Euronews
My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.

1) I’ve re-written the start of this tweet storm 5/6 different ways, but it ends up the same: the #NXVIM cult has so many separate lines of inquiry that it’s too early to really understand it. But some themes are starting to emerge, please follow along.

#Qanon #TheStorm @POTUS
2) This is going to be disjointed, stick with me and join in because I think this story lays themes & foundations for what’s going on in elite circles for sex trafficking & may even touch at the edges of things more devilish. Oddities and observations...

3) Building a picture of what this cult is, the first oddity? Being based in Albany, NY. Albany? Then I started to consider why. Albany is the seat of the NY government, and deeply tied to NYC, where a lot of elite people live; have certain proclivities.…
