Fortress Investment Group has gained international recognition due to its incredible growth and development over the past years. The company was introduced 20 years ago, and the founders had a very strategic vision that seem to have been gradually achieved with time. The firm was started in 1998 as a private equity manager after various other improvements were implemented to boost its growth and performance. Among the improvements was diversification of the asset portfolio of the company. The firm was later transformed to an alternative asset management firm from being a private equity manager. This was attained after the establishment of various other asset strategies such as credit fund, real estate, hedge fund, and other permanent capital investment strategies.
Fortress Investment Group had several competencies that have significantly contributed to its growth and development to one of the fastest growing investment firms across the United States and in the world. Unique professionalism in the management of mergers and acquisition is one of its ultimate competencies. Fortress has portrayed great potential and incredible performance when it comes to business relationships with other firms and corporations under the exclusive leadership of its presidents, Wes Edens, Randal Nardone, and Peter Briger. The CEOs concentrated in promoting relationship and cohesion with other firms by training staff on the development and maintenance of firm business networking with other stakeholders from various firms. This was their primary strategy which significantly contributed to their growth in development and performance.

This input has been highly productive in that Fortress Investment Group has occasionally been engaged in concrete and tangible business associations with several business players in the form of partnerships and M&As. A good example was 2016 when Fortress was entirely involved in buying the operator of the biggest ski resort in entire North America, Intrawest. This acquisition was a surprise to many and significantly contributed to the high value of the organization after the valuation was done. Fortress Investment Group later engages in various mergers and acquisitions all of which has a role to play in the improvement of the performance of the firm. The final and the most critical acquisition was the one that led to the purchase of Fortress Investment Group by Softbank Group in 2017. Visit: https://www.fortress.com/businesses/credit

Doe Deere is proof that the entrepreneurial spirit starts young and is the life force in many new immigrants that come to America. The Russian born young woman arrived in New York City, about twenty years ago. She was only 17, but had big dreams of attending the Fashion Institute of Technology and becoming a fashion designer, while her mother wished to pursue an accounting career, and her sister wanted to attend college. However, they had to place their dreams on hold because of a streak of bad luck that was aiming to kill their entrepreneurial spirit.
Shocking New Reality
After arriving in the crowded and very noisy city a shocking reality settled in for them. They were ill prepared for life in the big city and living in an expensive little apartment. Doe Deere’s mother soon ran out of money and they were forced to move to a homeless shelter and take low paying jobs to survive. Times were tough, but they managed to keep their heads above water. Soon, a lawyer that worked for an organization that helped immigrant women, new to the country made contact with them. She made sure that Doe Deere enrolled in the Fashion Institute Of Technology, her sister attended college, and helped Deere’s mother find an accounting position with a New York firm. Things were starting to look up for the three women and Deere still held on to her entrepreneurial spirit.
Soon, Deere and her family had enough money to move into their own apartment in a rough section of New York City. It wasn’t the best place to start their American life, but they didn’t complain. At least, they were together and had their own home with a kitchen, bathroom, and bedrooms. Doe Deere believes that the tough beginnings made her more resilient and determined to succeed in her career.
Success On The Horizon
A few years later, Deere started achieving success and founded the Lime Crime Cosmetic Company in 2008. Today, she is a major success and a role model for the numerous women and immigrants that have dreams of achieving great success in America on their own terms.

It’s important to remember that the goal with anti-aging is not to try to cheat death in any way. While there will soon be considerable breakthroughs happening in the field, there isn’t much of a chance that the technology required to extend people’s lives by hundreds of years in anywhere near development or approval in the near future. Some of these treatments that are developed in the near future may still take a long time to be completed and approved as well as the process can be very complicated.
Instead of just trying to treat individual diseases that are related to aging as they happen, Jason Hope wants to be able to prevent aging in their entirety in the future.
The tech savvy believes we may see a time with almost no cases of illnesses like Alzheimer’s. With some animals such as hydras never experiencing signs of aging, the world may someday see the same in humans.
