Medical Breakthrough: Scott Rockledge and Myotnic Dystrophy Type 1

Managing Partner of 5AM Ventures, Scott M. Rocklage, through his company Expansion Therapeutics, is leading the drive for increased funding and research into genetic disorders. Primary among these disorders is the the culprit for the majority of muscular dystrophy cases around the world: myotonic dystrophy type 1. This disorder is caused by RNA cells that have reached a toxic level. Rocklage, Expansion Therapeutics, and a slew of other major backers (including Sanofi Ventures, Novartis Venture Fund, and Kleiner Perkins), are working to develop a new medication that will help target these RNA malfunctions in the hopes of curing this disorder. According to Rocklage, the lead scientist on this project is Matthew D. Disney, PhD. Dr. Disney has worked for over 12 years on similar projects, and seems to be the best fit for this noble endeavor.


Scott M. Rocklage earned his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of California at Berkeley and his PhD in Chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. During his doctoral work at MIT, Rocklage worked underneath Richard R. Schrock, who won the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 2005. Today, Rocklage is a founding partner of the 5AM Ventures capital firm, which he claims is a life science-based firm. He is responsible for leading the charge for FDA approval for three different US Medications: Omniscan, Teslascan, and Cubicin. Omniscan and Teslascan are used for imaging in MRIs, while Cubicin is used to treat different forms of infections (including staph infections).


Rocklage claims over thirty years’ experience in healthcare management, and is an inventor in his own right with over thirty patents to his name. He has served as the Board Chairman for various companies, including Relypsa, Achaogen, and Novira, and is currently serving as the Board Chairman for Cidara, Kinestral, and Rennovia. Today, he lives in Boston, MA, where he operates out of his local 5AM Ventures office.


On July 18, 2016, Rocklage and his wife, Patty, were honored by MIT for their generous gift to help fund the renovation of several nanochemistry and nanotechnology labs at the university. At age 82, Rocklage has lived an eventful and successful life and, as MIT was his home for his PhD studies, did not hesitate in providing funding for his old stomping grounds.

Jeremy Goldenstein on Stock Options and Knockout Options

Jeremy Goldstein is known businessman who is currently working at the company Jeremy J. Goldstein & Associates, LLC as Partner. Jeremy Goldstein graduated from the New York Coty University School of Law from which he graduated with JD in 1999. Before that, Jeremy Goldstein achieved a master’s in Art History from the University of Chicago.



After graduating, Jeremy Goldstein started working at Shearman and Sterling for a year, Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen, and Katz for 14 years, and finally at his current workplace where he has been for almost four years. Jeremy Goldstein has amassed a number of professional skills and has become a capable leader.



Jeremy Goldstein has been helpful to the business sector in providing insight into several matters including the predicament employers have found themselves in of whether to use stock options or not. According to Jeremy Goldstein, knockout options are the best way to make sure that the stock options are handled well. To understand why, one needs to know some things about stock options and using them as additional compensation first.



Stick options as additional compensation has its pros and cons. One problem with it is that the stock value can drop sharply at any moment. That will make the stock options wholly unusable and thus eliminate their purpose as compensation. At the same time, businesses will still need to provide the same extensive reports. Employees have also become wary os stock options as a way of compensation. They widely prefer being paid in cash which is secure and straightforward. For the company, it also creates financial and accounting burdens to do all of the paperwork.



On the other hand, stock options are preferable to equities, additional wages, better insurance coverage ad the likes, according to most employers. It is more simple to explain t employees that are not familiar with the compensation method. It can also create a good profit for the company and the employee because stock options for the employee rise together with those of the company. That will have the employees working harder and being more productive.



To eliminate the disadvantages and still make use of the benefits, Jeremy Goldstein suggests knockout options which remove the value of stock options if those of the company drop below a certain value. That is more fair and secure for both the employer and the employee. It will also enhance the performance of the workforce and increase the financial gain.

How Fabletics Differs from Other Companies

Fabletics is a clothing company, but it is not the same as most other clothing companies. It is a different type of company than most that are a part of the industry. The people who run the company know there are different things they can do if they want to be able to try new things. They also know more people are going to be grateful for the things they have to offer than what other companies have because they know it will change based on their own personal style. Fabletics has always tried to make sure that they can cater to other people while they are running the business.


For Kate Hudson’s company, Fabletics, to do this, they have to make sure they are offering all the best services to their customers. Perhaps one of the best things they can do is offer their products and services to the people who need them. They can also show them they will be able to benefit from all the different things that are available on the athleisurewear line. Fabletics has tried their best to provide these clothes to their customers without the issues that sometimes come from other companies.


Convenience is key for online brands. Even major companies like Amazon know they have to do things in a way that’s convenient for all the people who they work with. Most people shop online because of the convenience factor and that sets everyone apart from what they have tried to do in other businesses. Fabletics is prepared to take on Amazon because they are even more convenient than other companies. Not only do they offer free shipping and clothing delivered right to their customers but they also do so through a subscription service. The whole process is relatively flawless.


Since most customers don’t even have to think about what they are doing with the clothes from the company, they know they will need to try different things to get the clothing they want. They also know they’ll need to push to make sure their customers are getting more from the industry than they are from other companies. Out of everything Fabletics has done, it has all led back to where their customers are and what they can do to help them. Fabletics and Kate Hudson are focused on the right way to help their customers without the issues that come from other online retailers.

Scott M. Rocklage, PhD Knows how to Build a Business

So, what do you say to a man who has a PhD and a resume that reads like the prefix to a novel? It all depends on if his record of service includes such names as EPIRUS Biopharmaceuticals, Amersham Health, Ilypsa Inc, Cubist Pharmaceuticals Inc, Nycomed Salutar, Catalytica Pharmaceuticals and a cadre of other fine businesses and organizations. In that case, you would start the conversation by saying “hello” to Scott M. Rocklage, PhD.


The conversation might then flow to one of the hundred different projects that he personally has a hand on and the patents under his name as well. Then the back and forth just might continue to naturally sway toward his position as CEO of 5AM Ventures. This is where the real inspiration and driving force behind this businessman can really be appreciated and explained.


The purpose and drive of the services his business provides is to be crucial in the formative stages of any life science business and supportive in the development of that company’s model. To do this, Scott M. Rocklage’s days are anything but typical and he can be seen discovering new breakthroughs in bioscience, or managing his companies portfolios, and even giving a little time to board meetings and other executive duties. But, when he’s not doing those things he’s often working with his clientele to help them realize the full potential of their ideas and execute them in the most efficient and proactive way as possible.


He’s most excited about working with professionals in the genome business who developed Target medicines that work in sales at a near miraculous level. His business is making science big business and helping others along the way. As a entrepreneur, he’s very goal oriented, focused and not afraid to take risks when it comes to seeing innovation in his daily service. For his success strategy, he recommends sticking to the script. However, he’s also not afraid to fix a mistake quickly once it has been made. For Scott, it’s all about having the right team and management for seeing success in his field, which surprisingly enough is not really affected by the tech communication craze.

Trabuco Says That HSBC Brazil Acquisition Was Worth “6 years Of Organic Growth”

Bradesco, one of the largest banks in Brazil, has had a productive last few years. Under the leadership of its famous CEO, Luiz Carlos Trabuco, the company has made an incredible turnaround. Much of this is attributable to the acquisition of HSBC Brazil, the largest acquisition in the history of Brazil. The deal has placed Bradesco in the dominant market position, and things are looking better than ever for the bank’s future.

Not willing to use the M-word

When taking a close look at Luiz Carlos Trabuco’s career in banking, what stands out is his tactic of creating absolute dominance in whatever market it is that he is competing in. Although Trabuco himself is loath to say it, he, like all good businessmen, actively seeks to create monopolies in the markets in which he is participating.

While the term monopoly has a negative ring to the ears of many North Americans, throughout Latin America, the history of monopolistic businesses is a bit more nuanced. Companies such as the United Fruit Company, International Telephone and Telegraph and Telmex have all been ruthless in their dealings and have left many losers in their wake. However, these companies have also brought civilization and jobs to areas that were little more than Hobbesian jungles, with citizens living in crushing poverty and most primitive conditions imaginable.

It is for this reason that when people throughout Brazil hear the term monopoly, it doesn’t have all negative connotations. Even so, Trabuco himself is careful not to state outright that it is his strategic goal to turn Bradesco into the undisputed private banking monopoly of Brazil. But Trabuco’s record largely speaks for itself.

A record of no-nonsense success

As a young executive with the bank, in 1992, Trabuco was assigned as the president of the firm’s financial planning division. The division had been struggling for years to turn a profit and represented only a tiny fraction of the bank’s total revenues. Trabuco had the reputation of being an efficient and capable manager. He was tapped in a last-ditch effort to reform the department, hopefully bringing it to a state of profitability before the bank would be forced to shut it down.

One of the first moves Trabuco made was to go to a completely non-egalitarian banking model on Throughout the history of Bradesco, the bank had clung to a model whereby all of the clients, no matter their value to the bank, were treated roughly equally. Someone with $1,000,000 on deposit stood in the same lines and talked to the same tellers as someone with only a few dollars in their checking account.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco, who was an enthusiastic student of the great banks of North America, immediately recognized the error of this system. He moved to create a tiered banking system, with the top-value clients receiving the bulk of the bank’s customer service resources. The new banking service, called Bradesco Prime, offered high-net-worth clients access to 24/7 personal banking, preventing them from having to stand in lines or deal with tellers who may be overburdened with other clients.

The top-end banking product also gave the best clients complementary items, such as free stays at five-star resorts or first-class airfare. The model proved to be a major success. By the time Trabuco left the position, Bradesco had cornered the high-net-worth banking market, adding tens of millions of dollars to Bradesco’s balance sheets and facilitating the creation of hundreds of millions in new loans according to

This is just one example of Trabuco’s sharp eye for eliminating inefficiencies and cornering markets in the process. All told, the many mini-monopolies he has created for the bank have been a boon to its bottom line.

The Life & Times of Designer Doe Deere

When it comes to cosmetics, there are many different brands to choose from. The industry rakes in billions of dollars on an annual basis, and it’s made-up of hundreds of brands. These brands include Almay, Max Factor, MAC, L’Oréal and many others. If there were any issues with these prominent brands, it would actually be that they don’t offer much in vividly-bright colors. This is where Lime Crime comes into the picture, and this brand is setting newer and better trends.


Lime Crime was founded by Doe Deere. Deere is the hot, new name of this exclusive industry, but she was actually born and raised in Russia. At the age of 17, she would move to the United States and this is where she began to make a name for herself. New York City was her new home. The boroughs of Brooklyn and Manhattan is where she spent the majority of time. This would be between the years 1998 to 2012. Deere just so happened to join a band, which was always one of her secret passions. This band played all around New York City, and it enjoyed local success. As time went on, Deere’s focus shifted more toward fashion and this would be the general inception of Lime Crime. FIT was the school and Deere majored in fashion design. She would get copious amounts of knowledge from this school, which came in handy years later. “Everyone has something that they’re good at,” said Deere. Staying in-touch with yourself and following you’re passion are keys to success.


Lime Crime is at the top of many people’s favorite cosmetic lists. The products are easy to use, they’re animal cruelty-free, they’re kiss-proof as well as touch-proof. You won’t find another brand with this much clout and capabilities. The brand is consistently used by males and females. There is no discrimination here and if you’d like to stand out in a crowd, these products will definitely help you achieve this. Doe Deere isn’t a household name, but she has single-handedly transformed the cosmetic industry with innovation and ingenuity. Learn more:

Jeremy Goldstein – A Leading Investment Compensation Expert Attorney

Jeremy L. Goldstein, Esq., attended the New York University School of Law earning a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree. He also remains a member of the school’s Professional Advisory Board for the Journal of Law and Business. Attorney Goldstein founded a private law firm in 2014 called Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates, LLC. His practice concentrates on issues involving executive pay and corporate governance. He counsels CEOs, compensation and fiscal management groups on these same issues.


In 2014, attorney Jeremy Goldstein founded the private law firm of Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates, LLC. His concentration is on executive pay and corporate governance issues. Mr. Goldstein is outstanding in his field because of the recent issue of corporations choosing not to provide its employees with stock options.


The purpose of this type of financial compensation movement is based around negative finances and other issues. Even though stock options for employees is still more preferable than giving higher wages, better insurance coverage, or providing more equities, it still gives employees better value options.


Some concerns that prompts corporations to remove employee stock options is that if the stocks do well, the company and employee earnings are a win-win. However, if stocks plunge, then just the opposite occurs. Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates touts a new type of compensation protective barrier option called “knockout.” Knockout means that if employee share values falls under a specific amount, they remain protective.


Knockout options are not a panacea, but they diminish many of the biggest obstacles associated with stock-based compensation. When businesses offer knockout benefits, company investors have fewer concerns about their abbreviating ownership shares. At the end of the year when executive compensation reports are disclosed, the proxy reports then reflect truer earnings which is more favorable to the shareholders.


In addition to financial compensation issues, Attorney Jeremy Goldstein continues to play important roles in corporate transactions with preeminent companies including AT&T, Bank One, Verizon, Merck, Chevron, Duke Energy, and the Miller Brewing Company. He is recognized by associations like The Legal 500 and Chambers USA Guide Leading Lawyers for Business as a leading executive compensation attorney.


Jeremy Goldstein sits on prestigious law journal boards and the Fountain House Board. The Fountain House transforms the lives of individuals with mental illness by helping to improve their talents, teach them new skills, provide safe new friendships and many other life changing opportunities. Attorney Goldstein is a member of the Business Section of the American Bar Association. He also chairs the Mergers and Acquisitions Subcommittee.

Kate Hudson’s Fabletics Dominating the Fashion e-Commerce Market

In order for any retailer to be dominating the fashion e-commerce market, they need to contend with the giant in that space first. Amazon has been at the top when it comes to selling apparel online, and to that point, the company has been raking in nearly 20 percent of all the sales in this competitive market each year. That being said, Kate Hudson’s Fabletics doesn’t focus on how far Amazon is ahead of the competition, they are focused on building a brand and growing at their own pace.


Looking at it from a numbers only perspective, Kate Hudson’s Fabletics has already sold $250 million of their athleisure brand.


Hudson loves to tell the story about how her company was able to break free from the pack and be in a position to be able to dominate the market that Amazon has ruled for so many years. Hudson says the reason her apparel line is so popular in the fashion e-commerce market has to do with reverse showrooming and member perks. Look at how shoppers are moving about in the Fabletics retail stores at the local malls, it is something you don’t normally see in a retail setting. Women are taking Lifestyle Quizzes, window-shopping, and trying on everything from leggings to yoga pants. There is never pressure from Fabletics sales associates that these shoppers need to buy either.


If no pressure to buy, how is it possible that the company made $250 in such a short amount of time?


The key to the growth of Kate Hudson’s Fabletics appears to be in how these women are shopping after they leave the store. Part of the perks with this company is that every piece of workout apparel worn in the stores is moved to that member’s online account. This gives these shoppers the chance to return and shop online when they have a less hectic schedule. Since these gals know exactly how the clothing fits, they can surf the online stores larger inventory and pick out fun colors to their hearts content.


The membership perks at Kate Hudson’s Fabletics don’t end there. Here are just some of the other benefits to shopping at this clothing retailer.


+ Free shipping for online orders.

+ Discounted prices on all workout apparel.

+ Help from a dedicated personal shopping assistant.


These are some of the reasons Hudson’s Fabletics is poised to take over this market if the others don’t change their selling practices.
