The Growth of Intelligent Beauty and JustFab

The entrepreneur Don Ressler, is behind a series of startups that have been successful, these include intelligent beauty, as well as its subsidiaries. When his first start-up, which was FitnessHeaven.com, had been purchased by Intermix Media during 2001, he then teamed up Adam Goldenberg who was the 19-year-old COO for Intermix, the two then went on from the company Alena Media. The performance and ecommerce advertising division has generated hundreds of millions in its revenue, and this was Intermixes one and only profit center. In 2005, News Corp had acquired Intermix, and after Intermix was took over by News Corp, Goldenberg and Don Ressler would soon find themselves watching all their hard work in the successful and profitable ecommerce business that they had built up be overlooked and ignored by media conglomerate. While Ressler became frustrated and were not bound to this new company, they decided to leave in pursuit of new opportunities. They knew that they had the skills that were essential to excel within the ever growing field of online performance advertising, and this was when Don Ressler and Goldenberg had made a decision to start working on a brand building enterprise that they felt they would be able to execute autonomously.

The first creation of Ressler from the direct-to-consumer brand business was DERMSTORE, which was an online cosmetics and skincare marketplace. And two years after they had launched DERMSTORE, they launched a weight-loss system called SENSA, for which they brought in Dr. Alan Hirsch to help with product development, as well as Brett Brewer, who was the Intermix founder, as the CEO of the company. While the financial results for DERMSTORE and SENSA were never released, it is said that both business were highly profitable, and after finding themselves bootstrapping for funding during the first two years, they went on to accept 43 million dollars of funding, this funding coming from the Technology Crossover Ventures during 2008. Then in 2010, they launched a third company through Intelligent Beauty, which was JustFab, which was a subscription eccommerce fashion retailer. After it had ridden on the momentum if two successful first years, JustFab stated to seek other opportunities in order to expand into more markets. And most recently in 2014, JustFab has closed on an 85 million dollar round in funding that was lead by the Passport Special Opportunity Fund, the included existing investors like Matrix Partners, Shining Capital and Technology Crossover Ventures.

THE NEW DAVOS CAP CALCULATOR SHINES!

David Osio is a man of serious business. Real Estate is his specialty game, and he plays it well. His success and actions back up his reputation.

Mr. Osio is not only the Executive Director and Founder of Davos Financial Group. He also leads the Davos Real Estate Group at large, and is behind many of its financial executive team’s most important decisions! On one such decision we will currently focus on; get ready to have your world rocked for a few moments!

According to a newly released online article (http://www.wrcbtv.com/story/32284716/david-osio-and-his-executive-team-at-davos-real-estate-group-launch-its-new-real-estate-application), it appears that, indeed, Osio and his executive team have truly done it again! They seize an opportunity, and they score. The resulting product apparently delivers, and quite well!

What do I refer to? Well, I speak of none other than the brand new mobile phone app which goes by the name of the Davos CAP Calculator…and is available on both Android and iPhone phones.  We always seek progress and ‘new’….this time, it is brought to us here! We must move forward!

In a nut shell, “During the last six months Gerard González, Executive Director of Davos REG, has been working hand-in-hand with the company Tecknolution on the design and development of this useful tool, which allows one to estimate the gain of an investment property…” (pg. 1) It seems that this newly unique app serves the main purpose of guiding financial investors when it comes to deciding on which property to purchase or not to purchase. That is the goal.

The direction of the app is in line with that of the purpose statement and mission of the company as a whole….and it seeks to further lay ground to all that has been founded and built upon by the greater organization of the Davos Real Estate Group at large. The promotion of the app is one which also mutually seeks to give some additional recognition and marketing, networking, & advertising. If consumers can know who is behind an app that they love and find helpful, then there is always an opportunity presented for those consumers to get to know and hear about the company behind such an app as well! One never knows!
