Some people might say that all of the dating apps are starting to look the same. When it comes to Whitney Wolfe a hint of originality played a big role in making Bumble much different. It does not look like everything else because it is not like everything else. Whitney Wolfe has gone an extra step to provide people with a better dating app opportunity. She created Bumble as a dating app originally, but it has expanded into so much more.

Business opportunities are available through Bumble Bizz. Friendship opportunities are available through Bumble BFF. People still have the ability to use Bumble dating to connect with potential singles. All of these things are combined inside of one app, but these functions are compartmentalized so things are not mixed up. This is the thing that many other social media apps have failed to do. Read more about Whitney Wolfe on Crunchbase.

Wolfe knew that there would be someone interested if she gave them opportunities to date and instantly switch over to connecting with potential business partners after they found a mate. She knew that there would be a need for retention when it came to social media. This is what most dating app developers do not realize. This has made Whitney Wolfe more of a leader when it comes to innovation and change and the dating app environment.

Some onlookers might say that Whitney Wolfe has found her niche because she knew that it would be easier to keep the users she already had than it would be to obtain new users after old registered users left the dating app when they found someone.

It was a great idea for Whitney Wolfe to work on retention when it came to seeing what people might actually want through a social media platform. She also realized that there was a need to cut down on sexual harassment during this #metoo movement.

Wolfe has shared so much of herself in her own experiences with sexual harassment. She wanted to give women a chance to explore dating online without the all the harrassment that came into the picture with dating apps.

There always comes a time when a small business enterprise emerges from becoming a small entity to a huge business enterprise. OSI Group is one such business entity. A company that started out as a small butcher is now a revered company operating globally. By dealing particularly in meat products, OSI Group has been able to dominate the food sector through quality products and guaranteed customer satisfaction. All in all, it is good to take into account that all this was not achieved in a short period. The streak of success has come about after many decades of operation. Moreover, with dedicated leaders such as Sheldon Lavin, the current chief executive officer of OSI Group, the company has been able to succeed in a magnificent manner.

Background Data

For a company that started out as a butcher shop founded by Otto Kolschowsky, the potential that lied in dealing in meat products surely lead to the expansion of the shop to operating globally. To start with, the growth of the butcher shop led to Otto launching a branch in Maywood back in the day. The butcher shop later transitioned into a family business that was renamed into Otto & Sons. At the time, the transition came about since Otto Kolschowsky decided to engage his sons in the business. Otto & Sons would later work with McDonald’s restaurant. The restaurant had a high demand for meat products, and Otto & Sons were in the capability to deliver. Since food is a fast moving commodity, the McDonald’s entity was growing very fast. AS McDonald’s grew, Otto & Sons would also grow since they had to expand their operations to meet the demand for meat products by the McDonald’s restaurant.

Additional Information

As Otto & Sons grew, they had to outsource funds to finance the building of more plants as they expanded their operations. Luckily, Sheldon Lavin was a finance expert, and he assisted Otto & Sons to get funds for their projects. Since the sons of Otto- Arthur and Henry were approaching their retirement years, one of the sons decided to sell his shares. Sheldon Lavin had initially seen the potential in Otto & Sons, with that as the case; he did not hesitate to acquire the shares. Later on, Sheldon Lavin’s expertise as a financial expert led to him being recruited as the chief executive of Otto & Sons which later transitioned to OSI Group in 1975.

OSI Food Group has grown, in part, through expansion by acquiring other food provider and food service entities. The greater part of their success can be attributed to excellence in products and service, as well as acquiring entities that compliment their current brand. A most complimentary acquisition of late was Baho Food. The company focuses on snacks, deli meats and a variety of convenience foods. The addition gave OSI food solutions with a much further presence and reach into Europe. The addition adds muscle and product line to both companies, as well as broadening the overall customer base. The acquisition also allows OSI food solutions as a whole broadens their capabilities, while maintaining their excellence in service to their customers.

In addition, Baho brings to the table five subsidiaries with processing plants in the Netherlands and Germany. This segment of Baho serves the needs of customers in more than 15 countries in Europe. The management team at Baho remained upon acquisition and was integrated into the OSI food solution management team. The two groups worked together to develop an overall management strategy to bring the two food service entities together into one cohesive and seamless unit. Both groups were very excited about the acquisition, realizing it was beneficial for both entities.

The success of OSI food solutions is dependent on one additional aspect and that is the strength of the team they assemble. It is important to OSI to seek out the best and brightest the world has to offer. The offer a working culture and environment of support and challenge and allow team members to grow and become the best they can be. OSI firmly believes that each person can make a difference, as they add their talent, as well as their experience to the workings of the company. It does not matter if potential candidates are fresh out of the gate or with experience under their belt; OSI has a place for team members to grow.

The philosophy of the company is to grow globally, but work locally. OSI food solutions works best when the team takes advantage of the local talent while being sensitive to local culture and the rules and regulations that govern such a venture. It is important to OSI to embrace the local population and always work to fill their needs.

Stream Energy has been working with the community in Texas for a long time, always playing their part to help out and donate to charities. When Harvey struck, Stream Energy was one of the first to chip in and start providing relief to the victims of the hurricane. Not only has the company’s efforts helped thousands of people, but it has brought them a lot of positive attention and new customers for their dedication to help the very people they serve. Stream has even started a more focused philanthropic effort known as Stream Cares in recent years.

According to Stream Energy, giving back to the community is part of what the company does and it will always be integral to their code. Even more than that, it is a smart move for any business to be supportive and helpful to their community and their customers. Even though they started up Stream Cares, it is just to create a more formal process for their philanthropic work, since Stream Energy has been active humanitarians for more than a decade. One of the biggest reasons Stream Energy is able to give so much back is the marketing techniques that have saved them a great deal of money, which go towards improving their services and helping the Texas community.

Stream is following a rather unique business model in terms of what most corporations do these days, but it is extremely effective for them. The philanthropy that they perform around the community helps build their image and their brand, building up their clientele base as well as giving them loyalty within the community. Stream Energy works with both residential spaces as well as commercial. Because the company operates through direct sales, they save a lot of money not having to advertise their brand, especially since they have such a strong reputation in the community already.
