If you ever attended a conference where entrepreneurs from countries like Brazil were giving people entrepreneurial strategies, you were in the right place. Brazil is among the countries with the best minds on entrepreneurial matters. Some of the famous and greatest entrepreneurs like Guilherme Paulus come from this country. Every time you interact with such great entrepreneurs, your mind on business affairs changes.
Paulus has for several years now received the Entrepreneur of the Year award. He had been invited to share his knowledge and experience on entrepreneurship on this event to make the young entrepreneurs know they can still make it.
They say you can learn something from what you see or hear. If you don’t manage to go to the entrepreneurs’ businesses to see what they do, you can attend their business seminars and conferences and hear what they have to say. Paulus wasn’t mean with information in the Top seller event since he shared a lot about every step of his business journey. Most of the startups who heard his story got encouraged and motivated to move on with their business plans. Guilherme Paulus was to go to college when he was 19 years old, but he lacked money for his academic journey. While his peers joined college and universities to strengthen their academic base, Paulus went to IBM for an internship.
He later got an opportunity to work at Casa Faro where he was an airfare salesman. Although he didn’t earn much money, this position helped him to discover the many opportunities the tourism sector had. Guilherme Paulus left Casa Faro in 1972 feeling convinced that looking for employment wasn’t the way to go. He realized he had the potential to stick to his entrepreneurial ambitions and actualize them.
Paulus is so passionate about believing in oneself. Although he didn’t have any money to make the first move toward his ambitions, he still held on to his vision in the tourism venture. At 24 years, Paulus had decided to start a tourism company with his little financial strength. He involved a partner while starting, although he knew he would get his 30 percent share if he committed his time and skills to the venture. Through his persistence and positive attitude, Guilherme Paulus is today among the top Brazilian billionaires Forbes has listed.
Technology is always advancing, especially in the field of medicine as new cures and treatments are always in the works. Unfortunately, like any other business out there, things are not always what they seem. This looks like the case for a Biotech company that has introduced a new medical treatment for patients to fight cystic fibrosis. Kerrisdale Capital has issued a negative report on said Biotech company with the backing of Sahm Adrangi, Kerrisdale Founder, and CEO. As a leading investment company and one of the most reputable investors in the country, Sahm Adrangi is often heard about and listen to for his insight.
Proteostasis is the Biotech company that Sahm Adrangi iscurrently calling into question, as he doesn’t believe their medical research was thorough and even reviewed to the maximum extent. Kerrisdale managed to get a closer look into the biotech company and has determined that their research and claims have not be done on an adequate sample sizing since they only had four patients for testing. What Sahm found was that during the trial period for their testing, these four patients experience severe drops in their overall lung performance. With such a small sample size and data that looks sloppy and certainly not finished, Kerrisdale is calling Proteostasis claims into question.
Sahm Adrangi has invested in many companies over the course of his career and to tremendous success because of his insight and deep research protocols. Before investing in a company or letting others know a company is safe, Sahm takes the time to truly dig into a company. This is how he found Proteostasis’s supposed breakthrough was actually much less than what it seemed at the surface. According to the report from Kerrisdale, there are no results to be found through the biotech company’s data. Also, should the biotech company’s drug fail to work, they stand to lose virtually all of their assets, so the desire to produce profits is extremely high. After the initial Kerrisdale report on Proteostasis, the biotech company’s share value fell more than 15 percent.
