Citybiz Interview with Tony Gruebl, President of Think & Jeff Musgrove, MD of Executive Advisory and PE & Venture Support

Citybizlist

In this second interview citybiz asks Baltimore-based Think’s Tony Gruebl, the firm’s president and founder, and Jeff Musgrove, managing director of executive advisory and PE and venture support, to discuss the company’s recent acquisition of Ventrue and why it puts the company on the path to offering services nationwide. In September, Think purchased Ventrue LLC, a Naples, Fla.-based shared services company for an undisclosed price. As part of the transaction Think signed a partnership agreement with Naples Technology Ventures (NTV), a venture capital fund that invests in technology companies. Think will provide technology and advisory services to support NTV’s acquisitions. The Ventrue and NTV deal opens new markets for Think, primarily with private equity and venture capital firms. Musgrove says potential clients are disruptors operating in insurtech, fintech and healthtech. Through Ventrue, Think can plug into these companies and advise them along the business lifecycle in three primary areas: diligence, integration and optimization. “I have been a big believer that there is a gap to be filled by a firm like Think in that space as a trusted partner to the PE or VC firm who can go in and perform those critical functions for them,” Musgrove said. “So, they don’t need to build it. We have the expertise.” To hear more from Gruebl and Musgrove, click the below video.

FABER FOUNDATION MAKING A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE FOR CHARITIES & NONPROFITS

The Faber Foundation

Since its launch just a few months ago, The Faber Foundation continues to make a positive difference in the operations of government agencies, first responders, charities, and nonprofit organizations focused on serving others. The Faber Foundation helps combat the spread of COVID-19 by equipping those in need of critical supplies like hand sanitizer and other personal protective equipment (PPE) – allowing organizations to continue serving vulnerable communities without disruption. After shifting production of its high-quality vodkas, gin, and rum to the manufacture of hand sanitizer ( Faber Hand Sanitizer ), the Faber team scaled its supply to get sanitizer into the hands of those who needed it most. When supply was short, Faber filled the needs that helped keep organizations operating and people safe. As supplies become more abundant, the team continues to supply businesses and consumers while meeting the steady demand from those working tirelessly to serve others. “More than 3,500,000 bottles of hand sanitizer and other PPE is already donated to a variety of organizations still struggling to obtain critical supplies,” explained Faber’s Director of National Accounts, Brenden Pakebusch. “Organizations like Goodwill and World Vision should be allowed to pursue their work without interruptions due to safety equipment supply shortages. We hope others will join us by supporting these vital efforts.” “Thanks to generous donors like Faber Sanitizer, World Vision has been able to deliver more than 320,000 of PPE like hand sanitizer, face masks, gloves, and boot covers, to first responders, medical centers and the most vulnerable people across the United States,” stated Mike Gillespie, Senior Director for partner engagement at World Vision. “As the world navigates new and unexpected challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic, vulnerable families across the United States are facing an unprecedented crisis.” “COVID-19 has hit Goodwill hard,” said Rick Hill, the CEO of Goodwill Keystone Area. “Goodwill stores and donations centers were shut down for several months, severely reducing our funding income and ability to serve others. The support from Faber continues to make a major difference in our stores and donation centers as operations resume.” The beneficiaries of Faber Foundation’s generosity include organizations, large and small, which work directly with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the American Red Cross. Organizations that need sanitizer and PPE are encouraged to contact the Faber Foundation here: https://www.thefaberfoundation.com/inquiries. As COVID-19 continues to disrupt public health and the economy, those wishing to support this cause are encouraged to donate here: https://www.thefaberfoundation.com/donate “The Faber Foundation is proud to meet this need,” Pakebusch continued. “These are difficult times, and helping ease anxieties by removing the obstacle of obtaining sanitizer and PPE, further combatting COVID-19, is the most important thing we can do right now. Please join us by considering a gift so we can continue these critical operations.” The Faber Foundation’s existing supply and access to hand sanitizer can reassure nonprofit organizations, school leaders, healthcare workers, and others on the front lines. This hand sanitizer follows FDA guidelines and will be available when needed. The product is shipped directly in a variety of pack sizes, as well as by the pallet load.

Intapp to Sell Cloud-Based Solutions Exclusively

Intapp

Intapp, the leader in connected firm management solutions, today announced that it will transition to cloud-based solution sales exclusively starting January 1, 2021. Intapp will continue to service existing clients with on-premises software and support them as they become ready to migrate to cloud solutions. “Although much of the business world has quickly migrated to cloud-based software, professional and financial services firms have lagged behind. Intapp is taking the lead in bringing these industries up to date,” said Thad Jampol, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer at Intapp. “It’s more than managing costs and enhancing operational efficiency. This is about our client firms adopting a modern, technology-enabled model that enables them to better meet their clients’ needs. Legacy, location-dependent services are the past; cloud is the future.” Cloud deployment enables firms’ technology to move at the speed of their business.

Intapp will continue to invest in the development of its cloud-based solutions to respond to evolving demands. “With on-premises software, upgrades take time that often renders enhancements irrelevant by the time they’re in place,” added Jampol. “With real-time, cloud-based updates, everyone across the firm has immediate access to the latest features and the current data required to work better together.” “As mission-critical business partners in a constantly evolving business and technology environment, we’re here to help professional and financial services firms deliver the highest level of service,” said Jose Lazares, Vice President, Product Strategy and Business Management at Intapp. “Starting January 2021, Intapp will launch new subscribers directly on the Intapp Secure Cloud, enabling them to become truly connected firms in just one step.

Graphic novel: Disinformation and cyber warfare illustrated in Real Fake

Stockwood Strategy

Deepfakes, bots, and troll farms are just some of the emerging techniques for creating and spreading disinformation. Erly Stage Studios has today published Real Fake , the digital graphic novel, which sheds a light on the disruptive forces at work. This book is the first of the graphic novels that are a part of the Resilience Series commissioned by the US Cyber Infrastructure and Security Agency (CISA). Real Fake will inform and educate people on the dangers and risks associated with dis- and mis- information through fictional stories inspired by real-world events. In Real Fake, readers will meet the protagonist Rachel O'Sullivan, a gamer, patriot and member of Symous - a group fighting disinformation and foreign interference in elections as polling day approaches. Farid Haque, founder and CEO of Erly Stage Studios commented: “We’re delighted to have been commissioned by CISA to create a practical and engaging communication tool that highlights the existential threat of disinformation in the context of bad state actors. While the story is fictional many of the approaches shown are very much grounded in the reality of the technology we live with and are exposed to almost daily.” Real Fake provides a unique education for the reader about the world of Deepfakes and their history while helping the reader understand the need to exercise care when it comes to consuming news and information via social media platforms and online sources of information. In the story, racing against the clock a group of citizens set out to shine a spotlight on the source of disinformation. They find it’s coming from across their borders and from the unlikeliest of places set up as farms to perpetuate information that maliciously misleads and influences electoral outcomes. The protagonists of the story have access to unique resources and are able to prove who the sponsors of disinformation are via their puppet farms set up around the world to troll democracy in the land of the free. “Real Fake is the culmination of the wealth of experience that Clint Watts brings in cyber warfare and disinformation and our studio’s creative direction and storytelling style. We spent months researching the real life incidents and then wrapped them into a fictional story” added Farid Haque. The graphic novel is being made available by CISA to the general public online as a free resource ahead of the 2020 US Presidential election at the following URL: https://www.cisa.gov/cfi-resilience-series-graphic-novels . A subsequent title in the series will be released a few weeks afterwards titled Bug Bytes. Watch this space and log back into https://www. publishing.erlystagestudios.com to learn more.

RAISE UP PAC: COMPLAINT WITH FEDERAL ELECTION COMMISSION CITING EXPENSIFY CEO VIOLATIONS

Raise Up PAC

The Raise Up Trump Political Action Committee, a coalition of business leaders organized by Bloomington, CA based RPP Products CEO, Eric Zwigart, pledging to give all employees a pay raise if President Trump is re-elected, announced it filed a Complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC). The complaint from the Raise Up PAC calls out Expensify’s CEO David Barrett for violating Federal Election law in his “unreported, improper Independent Expenditure supporting Joe Biden”. On October 22nd, Barrett sent an email to approximately ten million customers in Expensify’s customer database or e-mail system, using his official Expensify e-mail address. The message was a clear call to elect Joe Biden for President. “Expensify and it’s CEO have every right to engage in political speech, but they don’t have the right to duck FEC reporting requirements,” explained Raise Up Counsel Dan Backer. “The 24-hour deadline to report their independent expenditure has long passed, and no filing from Expensify.” In addition to failing to report its independent expenditure to the FEC within 24 hours— or at all—the complaint also points out that FEC-required disclaimers – that all political speakers must use - were omitted from Barrett’s email. The Complaint to the FEC may be viewed here: https://www.raiseuptrump.com/documents/Expensify_FEC_Complaint.pdf “President Trump’s Administration rescued a stagnant economy, created more jobs than ever before, lowered taxes, and created real opportunities for Americans to pursue their dreams by placing us on the right path. The recovery is already underway. To stop it now would be both foolish and dangerous,” Eric Zwigart the visionary founder of Raise Up stated. “We all have the right to Free Speech and ability to advocate for our beliefs – but we must act within the parameters of Federal Election laws.” Zwigart continued. “Further, A Biden-Harris Administration poses significant risks to businesses, employees, and the overall economy. The costs of running a business in these uncertain times, combined with the political left’s pursuit of job killing regulations and extreme taxation will crush the bottom line and the American spirit if Democrats are successful – Expensify knows this despite the messages they sent ignoring FEC requirements.” ### For more information about Raise Up, please visit: https://www.raiseuptrump.com/ Contact Details Dan Rene +1 202-329-8357 danrenejr@gmail.com Company Website https://www.raiseuptrump.com/

George Mason University wins grant for “return to work” pilot programs for antibody and diagnostic testing

Fairfax County Economic Development Authority

George Mason University’s College of Health and Human Services and College of Science have been awarded a $100,000 GO Virginia Economic Resilience and Recovery Grant to establish critical infrastructure to improve COVID-19 symptom monitoring and tracking, and diagnostics and facilitate a safe return to work. The initiative will simplify workplace monitoring for symptoms and testing for the COVID-19 virus and antibodies and will improve how contacts are traced when the virus is detected. Capabilities such as effective and easy-to-scale methods for diagnostic and antibody testing and contact tracing are key to a safe return. The interdisciplinary project brings together epidemiologists, nurse researchers, health informatics specialists, and laboratory scientists to create a holistic return to work program that can be scaled up. Dr. Amira Roess, an epidemiologist and professor in the Department of Global & Community Health , is leading the project, which includes integration of symptom, exposure, and behavioral data with regular testing following exposures. Roess brings extensive experience in outbreak and emergency preparedness and response. She advises public and private organizations, including K-12 schools, judicial systems, universities, and businesses on how to safely resume operations. Dr. Lance Liotta, professor in the School of Systems Biology and co-director and co-founder of Mason’s Center for Applied Proteomics and Molecular Medicine (CAPMM) is leading a team that developed a novel saliva-based antibody test, which is easier to use than other tests and has the potential for higher sensitivity and specificity than previous formats. “With breakthroughs in screening, surveillance, and testing, Mason faculty are leading efforts to fight COVID-19 in the region and around the country. The research happening here helps lay the groundwork for the economic recovery of Northern Virginia and the potential for developing commercially-available tests right here in the region,” said Dr. Aurali Dade, Mason’s interim vice president for research, innovation and economic impact. The pilot will focus on understanding the physical and mental health impact of COVID-19 on the workforce, especially among essential, front-line workers such as those in health care, first responder roles, education, and retail. The team plans to use the results to develop tailored stress management interventions and programs to enhance safe return to work for these populations. Leaders at the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority and Prince William Department of Economic Development voiced their support for the pilot initiative and the impact a widely available, non-invasive antibody test coupled with enhanced diagnostic testing can have on the region’s ability to resume key operations. Bringing a COVID-19 testing protocol to market in Northern Virginia could also have longer-term benefits to the region and its growing life sciences and information technology sectors. “This is an important effort to understand more about COVID-19 and its effects on the population, and I am delighted to see it moving forward,” said Victor Hoskins, president and CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority . “This effort also is the latest example of innovators in the Northern Virginia technology community collaborating to improve people’s lives, and we should be proud that this kind of discovery happens here.” "I'm so proud to call Mason one of Prince William County's own and I'm excited to see this study move forward," said Christina M. Winn, executive director of the Prince William County Department of Economic Development . "It's such an important step in building confidence in our community and preparing our region for safely getting back to work." The GO Virginia Economic Resilience and Recovery Grant Program was created by the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) Growth and Opportunity for Virginia Board. George Mason University matched the grant with $50,000 in funding. "In creating the Economic Resilience and Recovery program, the GO Virginia State Board pivoted resources to focus on near term strategies to mitigate the economic impacts of the pandemic and this project is a perfect example of an innovative regional solution. This collaborative project leverages unique assets in Northern Virginia and we look forward to seeing the results of this pilot and its potential to inform reopening strategies," said Sara Dunnigan, deputy director, GO Virginia and Economic Development at DHCD. The Fairfax County Economic Development Authority promotes Fairfax County as a business and technology center. In addition to its headquarters in Tysons, Fairfax County’s largest business district, the FCEDA maintains business investment offices in six important global business centers: Bangalore/Mumbai, Berlin, London, Los Angeles, Seoul and Tel Aviv. Follow the FCEDA on Facebook , Instagram , LinkedIn , Twitter and YouTube . The Prince William County Department of Economic Development’s mission is “to improve the County’s economic base by encouraging new businesses to locate in Prince William County, retain existing businesses and encourage existing businesses to expand.” The Department works hard to create a pro-business, globally-competitive environment that generates new, high-quality, and sustainable job opportunities for our citizens and engages in a broad portfolio of services, partnerships, and strategic alliances to benefit the business community and stimulate the economy. The Fairfax County Economic Development Authority and the Prince William County Department of Economic Development are members of the Northern Virginia Economic Development Alliance . Other members of NOVA EDA are the Alexandria Economic Development Partnership, Arlington County, City of Fairfax, City of Falls Church, Fauquier County, Loudoun County, City of Manassas and City of Manassas Park.

FABER DISTILLING ESTABLISHES FOUNDATION SUPPORTING VULNERABLE COMMUNITIES

The Faber Foundation

Earlier this year, Pennsylvania-based Faber Distilling Co . (Faber) shifted production of its high-quality vodkas, gin, and rum to the manufacture of hand sanitizer ( Faber Hand Sanitizer .) While many distillers have made similar adjustments, Faber scaled the production of its hand sanitizer to supply consumers as well as medical professionals and first responders when supplies were scarce. Continuing with its mission to put sanitizer and other personal protection equipment (PPE) into the hands of those who need it most, the company is announcing the launch of The Faber Foundation – a charitable organization. The mission of the Faber Foundation is to help combat the spread of COVID-19 by equipping those who need hand sanitizer and other PPE with these critical supplies – quickly and efficiently. “When the pandemic escalated in the United States, our founders rose to the challenge and converted a distillery into a hand sanitizer production facility. By producing millions of bottles and distributing nationwide, Faber Sanitizer helped fill the void during the sanitizer shortage of 2020. Now, our founders are turning their efforts to help those communities that are still struggling to obtain PPE,” explained Faber’s Director of National Accounts, Brenden Pakebusch. “More than 1,000,000 bottles of hand sanitizer and other PPE worth more than $2,000,000 is already slated for donation, and with greater cooperation, even more is possible.” The beneficiaries of Faber Foundation’s generosity include organizations, large and small, which work directly with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the American Red Cross. Organizations that need sanitizer and PPE are encouraged to contact the Faber Foundation here: https://www.thefaberfoundation.com/inquiries As COVID-19 continues to disrupt public health and the economy, those wishing to support this cause are encouraged to donate here: https://www.thefaberfoundation.com/donate . “When Faber began manufacturing sanitizer, we responded to the immediate needs of so many organizations and individuals to obtain product. Although supplies have become more plentiful, challenges still remain in getting sanitizer into the hands of health professionals, first responders, and other essential workers who need it most,” Pakebusch continued. “The Faber Foundation is proud to meet these needs and welcomes the support of others wishing to participate.” The Faber Foundation ensures that donations are immediately deployed, getting essential supplies out in real time, with the cost of transportation and shipping also contributed. The Foundation does not assess any management or administrative fees, allowing nearly 100% of these donations to benefit nonprofit organizations and essential workers. “These are difficult times and helping ease anxieties by removing the obstacles of obtaining sanitizer and PPE to combat the spread of COVID-19 is essential,” said Pakebusch. “If you want to support something that will truly save lives and help to turn the tide of the pandemic, then the Faber Foundation is an efficient and effective organization that is already making a difference.” The Faber Foundation’s existing supply and access to hand sanitizer can reassure nonprofit organizations, school leaders, healthcare workers, and others on the front lines, that the hand sanitizer follows FDA guidelines, and will be available when they need it. Product is shipped directly in a variety of pack sizes as well as by the pallet load.
