Classdojo Development Team’s Upgrade to Education receiving Warm Reception

 

ClassDojo is an education technology application that was founded by Liam Don and Sam Chaudhary. The main reason why the two founders decided to start the application is to initiate ground-up changes in education.

 

Before they started developing the application, they collected views from teachers and parents concerning the issues they felt were left out by the regular school system. They used the observations to develop ClassDojo. As a result, ClassDojo’s functions have impressed both parents and teachers by allowing them to work together in enhancing a child’s learning.

 

The main reason why ClassDojo is widely accepted is because it improves the learning process. Teachers and parents can use the application to communicate on important issues concerning a student. The parents are able to keep updated on how their children are faring at school. Unlike in the past, a parent does not have to wait until his or her child is at home to know how school was. Messages sent through the application can be translated into any language.

 

The ClassDojo development team has been working to make more improvements by adding features that suit the needs of parents, teachers, and students. To sum up, on their effort, Chaudhary and Liam have been soliciting for funds from venture capitalists.

 

In a recent venture funding, they managed to raise $21million. The round of venture funding was headed by General Catalyst, one of the ClassDojo’s ventures capitalists. New investors like GSV, SignalFire, and Reach Capital joined to support the development of the education technology application.

 

Hemant Taneja, a senior executive in General Catalyst, disclosed that they were excited by the work that the ClassDojo team was doing. In less than ten years, ClassDojo had grown from an application that was used to build student character to a communication platform that connected parents to the school creating a community working to improve student’s performance.

 

Taneja further confirmed that the funds they had raised could be used to develop ClassDojo into a social network which served the education sector. Other important features that could be added to the application include those that will enable parents to pay tuition fees and purchase educational materials in the form of a download.

 

Chaudhary and Liam said that they were working to outdo other educational technology applications from their rivals like Nearpod, Kickboard, and Remind. Already, ClassDojo is the leading application that is downloaded and used in most schools. In the United States, two of every three schools are reported to use the application.

 

Tips For Strengthening Your Online Reputation

A Fox News online publication shows that posting content is one of the strategies one can apply to push for better reputation. It should not be about marketing the business all the time, but some content that seeks to explain some things to customers draws them closer and shields the business from negative mentions.

It does not have to be about marketing every time. You can do an article that explains some concepts then inject very little marketing in it since most people don’t find content that generally promotes a product impressive.

Finally, ensure you manage all complaints that are submitted by customers because failure to respond makes them believe you are not concerned about catering for their needs. This way, you will have easy time getting your business to the top.

 

Lime Crime The Vision Of Doe Deere

Doe Deere
In 2008 a new and exciting cosmetics company was launched, Lime Crime was founded by Doe Deere because she was unable to find makeup in bright enough colors to match the clothes she was designing and already selling on Ebay. Starting with what she called Unicorn Lipsticks, Lime Crime became the first cosmetic company to offer radical lip colors to the cosmetics industry.

By 2012 Lime Crime had introduced Velvetines, the liquid to matte lipstick trend that has become very popular with their loyal customers. Doe believes cosmetics should do much more than simply cover imperfections but are a form of freedom and self-expression.

For Doe Deere, it’s about what feels good at the moment not about looking natural or what might look good. Deciding traditional cosmetic companies were not being true to the color she decided to introduce her own cosmetics line.

All Lime Crime cosmetics are cruelty-free, now meeting Vegan standards since 2012 to create lipstick, eye shadows and nail polish that is highly pigmented to create bold and vibrant colors. Lime Crime goes to the extreme to achieve their goal of 100% vegan ingredients, including using synthetic beeswax.

Starting small, with her Ebay clothing line, she soon achieved great success and realized to complete the look she was promoting she would have to make her own lipstick, eye shadow, and nail polish. Referring to her customers as Unicorns, every product she develops is with them in mind, in fact, she relies heavily on her Unicorns for inspiration. Being the founder, CEO, and owner of Lime Crime she oversees the product development of any new product.

Born in Russia and raised in New York Doe now lives in Los Angeles where Lime Crime is headquartered. Enrolling in the Fashion Institute of Technology with the intent of studying fashion design and illustration she decided to drop out early and pursue her dream of creating her own clothing line. Being a one person operation she even modeled her own creations.

Along with being a very successful entrepreneur, Doe Deere is an avid supporter of women who want to be in business for themselves. Frequently speaking to women’s groups, she encourages women to find their own voice and pursue their ambitions. She enjoys being a mentor to aspiring female entrepreneurs and encourages them to seek her advice on her Instagram account.

She is very excited about the trend of women buying cosmetics online. Advised when she first started her business, women would not buy lipstick without trying it on, Lime Crime is one of the first cosmetic companies to rely on e-commerce. Doe felt the key to prompting women to buy cosmetics online was how the product was presented. She was the first to show her lipstick colors on actual lips rather on a color swatch, today this has become the industry standard. Lime Crime continues to innovate new ways to make the best interactive shopping experience for makeup lovers around the world.

Doe believes you should always trust your gut, having a lot of information is not always the answer if your gut feeling is strong enough go forward.

Large Payout Shows The Benefits Of Labaton Sucharow’s SEC Whistleblower Program

The SEC Whistleblower program has been looking to bring increased success to the prosecution of those who are found to be breaking the rules and regulations of the SEC on the financial markets. The latest success being celebrated by the SEC Whistleblower attorney program of Labaton Sucharow is a $17 million payout for an individual who provided information leading to heavy fines levied against a company; the SEC Whistleblower program provides between 10 and 30 percent of any fines for whistleblowers who play a major role in the prosecution of financial irregularities. Learn more here.

Over the course of the last six years the SEC Whistleblower lawyer Jordan A. Thomas has assembled an impressive team to assist with his leadership of the cases brought to him by whistleblowers. Mr. Thomas finds himself at an advantage over his fellow attorneys as he was an author of the Frank-Dodd Act that laid down the basis of the SEC Whistleblower program, and established the $400 million fund used to pay monetary rewards for each whistleblower. The fund is just a small part of the framework Jordan A. Thomas helped create for the SEC Whistleblower program that also ensures each individual has their employment and identity protected for the future.

The $17 million payout for an individual the Labaton Sucharow law firm represents is the second largest in the history of the program, which shows just how effective the law firm is at working within the SEC Whistleblower program. Jordan A. Thomas and his team have been working to make sure they are aware of every aspect of the whistleblower program, including the ability of the law firm to make sure each and every individual has the chance to remain anonymous during their time in the program; the team has already worked on a case where a whistleblower was identified and victimized by their employer.

Unlike many of their contemporaries the team at Labaton Sucharow are interested in protecting the future of each individual whistleblower, which means they are willing to examine every case in detail before making a decision about moving on to the next steps of entering the SEC Whistleblower program.
