It increasingly became difficult to keep up with what’s important in email inbox. Relevant mails could be buried in junk and it was difficult to retrieve them. Two 24-year entrepreneurs experienced the problem first-hand and endeavored to change it. Jojo Hedaya and Josh Rosenwald started Unroll.me, an email organization tool.
Unroll.Me was conceived out of a personal frustration. Jojo Hedaya, co-founder and COO, could send emails to Josh Rosenwald and never get a response. In defense, Josh said he never got the emails. The tool puts together subscriptions, newsletters, and updates to make it easy for you to decide on what to keep and what to unsubscribe from.
The two entrepreneurs grew up in New York City but met in a college in Israel. They had a lot of similar things. They even share a birthday. They both attended Jewish high schools. Both Jojo Hedaya and Josh Rosenwald didn’t graduate from college. Mr. Hedaya believes that there is more into life than a college degree. The skills are what matters the most.
Jojo Hedaya didn’t anticipate that the company will become this big over 6 years later. In fact, Mr. Hedaya considers themselves lucky owing to the number of startups in the United States that don’t survive in the market. They experience their fair share of challenges while trying to getting Unroll Me up and running. They soldered on during turbulent times and investors started having confidence on them after they stood the taste of time. Josh and Jojo made Unroll Me as simple as possible to the users.
Jojo Hedaya has three credits to finish to be able to go for a degree. However, he plans to go back and finish his studies. The passion he had for simplicity streamlined the email unsubscribe process and as a result, users gained control over their inbox. Under his tenure, the company gained millions of users over the past few years.
Unroll Me grew rapidly and attracted the attention of Rakuten-owned shopping startup called Slice. Slice is in the email business in that it pulls up receipts and analyzes them with an intention to help shoppers to track their discounts, packages, orders and more. The acquisition came in the wake of negotiations on a partnership deal.

Richard Liu Qiangdong often referred to as Liu Quingdong, is one of the richest men in China, with an emphatic story behind his success. Richard Liu gets much attention from the business world, not only because he is a billionaire investor, but also because he is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of China’s largest retailer, JD.com. According to Forbes, Richard Liu’s e-commerce empire is worth a whopping $57.6 billion and continues to grow rapidly as Jingdong works to becoming the largest online retailer on the globe.
Liu ’s journey is emblematic of the rags-to-riches story, as he once made a living taking on random coding gigs, having taught himself how to program. It is by virtue of his relentless determination that JD.com is the king of retail today, having survived harsh economic times and still managed to pick up and prosper. This was in 2003 when there was a SARS outbreak that effectively rendered human interaction redundant, forcing Richard Liu to close down 12 of his shops.
For any other average entrepreneur, being forced to shut down physical locations of a business that thrives on human interaction spells doom, but Richard Liu Qiangdong saw it as an opportunity to think out of the box. After bouncing off ideas with like-minded professionals, Richard Liu came up with the idea of taking business online, and that was the genesis of Jingdong.
At the time, the e-commerce sector was flooded with fraudulent entities that sold counterfeit items while nickel and diming their customers every chance they got. As Richard Liu knew how important ethics, honesty, and accountability are in a business model, he modeled his business alongside these strong fundamental values and designed a customer-eccentric business model. It is no wonder that, today, JD.com is one of the most trusted retailers all over the world with sales well over the billion mark.
Before Richard Liu founded Jingdong, he worked as the head of business and head of computers at Japan Life; a reputable health product company. He scored the job after completing his EMBA from the China Europe International Business School. This was in addition to his Sociology degree, which he had attained at Renmin University of China. It was after working for two years at Japan Life, that he branched out on his own to open a magneto-optics store in Beijing. He did good business and grew the venture into the largest retailer in China, JD.com.

Based on Gareth, the analysts can make use of the quantitative techniques to examine and analyze past events, with the current while anticipating for future ones. Gareth Henry also urges the individual investors to make use of the techniques.
The individual investors are assured of great value that goes beyond Wall Street through the quantitative application. The Governments across the world can also count on the quantitative analysis in the decision and policy-making processes.
