With the latest report from Wall Street Journal saying that he is now managing his family’s management office, Soros Fund Management, George Soros is showing proof that he’s still relevant both in the social and business realm. It is still the business style of Mr. Soros to continually push for the development of the economy in the United Kingdom after the Brexit happened. According to a report from Politico, George also believes that trust is waning from the investors of China as the capital moves out of the country due to misallocated investment strategies.

After his initial work at a merchant bank, George moved to New York to get a job at Wall Street and started his hedge fund with a capital of 12 million dollars in 1969.Later in 1992, George partnered with Stan Druckenmiller to invest in British pound stock trades and amassed a great impressive profit from breaking the Bank of England. Decades after that, he retains the reputation of being one of the heavyweights in investment banking through the Soros Fund Management that his family started, which boasted of around $30 billion in assets. This year, Soros is working with Dawn Fitzpatrick to oversee the operations of many portfolios in his father’s fund management firm.A supporter of liberal causes, Soros is a known critic of the presidency of Donald Trump, and over the years, has supported lawyers in the fight against unlawfully held individuals.

Nathaniel Ru: Helping Revolutionize The Fast Food Industry

Nathaniel Ru along with Jonathan Neman and Nicolas Jammet are revolutionizing the fast food industry. They are co-CEO’s of the Sweetgreen company. The trio are unique not only in the fast food industry but also the tech they use and their management style. Sweetgreens around the country have continuous lines out the door with customers always coming back for more.

 

Sweetgreens

 

Everything about Sweetgreens is fresh and refreshing, especially the produce. The produce is delivered fresh every morning to each location. Everything is made from scratch and the menu changes five times a year.

 

The prices when eating at Sweetgreen are about the same as one would pay for a burger and fries from another chain. The food is not only fresh and delicious it is reasonably priced and nutritious.

 

Depending on what city you are in Sweetgreens has a menu specific to your location. This is because the ingredients are all sourced locally. Nathanial Ru, co-CEO, said in an interview with Fortune that, “We want to feed more people better food.”

 

Technology and Management Strategies

 

Sweetgreens is also revolutionizing how to integrate tech into the business to streamline the process. If there is a location near you you can order directly from the app or the website and skip the line when you pick up your order. An impressive 30% of Sweetgreens transactions process online.

 

In that same interview with Fortune, Nathaniel Ru said in reference to their management strategy, “We wanted to decentralize our headcount.” That core strategy has played out in a unique way. The corporate office shuts down completely 5 times a year and all the employees help staff the restaurants during that time. There is nothing traditional about Sweetgreens and that is exactly how they want it.

 

Simple Style and Refreshing Design Elements

 

Everything from choosing the location of the restaurant to the design of the space is carefully executed and considered.

 

Nathaniel Ru said to Business Insider that, “How we enter a market is just as important as how many stores we do.” Sweetgreens made sure that the chain would never show up in the expected strip mall locations. Instead the focus is on attaining locations in trendy neighborhoods.

 

Nathaniel Ru, Jonathan Neman and Nicolas Jammet have started Sweetgreens all over the country and they are constantly looking for more areas to expand their chain.
