Monarch Technologies, Inc. Announces New Partnership with Canna Group Consulting LLC

The Partnership Will Bring a Customized Banking and Payment Processing Services to the CBD and Cannabis Business Owner

COLUMBUS, OH, UNITED STATES, October 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — THOUSAND OAKS, CA / ACCESSWIRE / August 6, 2020 / Monarch Technologies, Inc. (Fintech), a fully licensed Money Transmittal Service Provider, announced today that it has partnered with industry leader and pioneer Sami Spiezio, Founder/President of Canna Group Consulting LLC Merchant Group, a consulting group that represents independently owned acquisitions and payments offices across the country.

Currently, Monarch Technologies is a Fintech Banking Platform, serving businesses as well as City and Governmental Agencies/Regulatory compliance entities. Monarch was built after years of industry research from state, city and governmental agencies that were frustrated with lack of compliance and thousands of past due tax payments.

"We are proud to add Canna Group Consulting LLC to our network as a trusted and valued business partner," said Christian Fea, Fintech CEO.

"Their top-tier group of consultants and support team pairs perfectly with Monarch Technologies' desire to provide cutting-edge, strategic marketing solutions in an industry that has been under served."

The intention of both Monarch and Canna Group is to reduce the risks involved for Hemp/CBD/THC/MMJ Medical Physicians and medical marijuana business owners. The Monarch platform is also fitted for financial institutions to successfully underwrite, on-board and provide continued compliance and taxation services to farmers, growers, supply chain, distribution, wholesale, manufacturing and dispensary initiatives.

CBD, Hemp and Cannabis Banking Solution

According to Mr. Fea, a growth explosion has erupted in the Cannabis space to provide business owners with a safe and cost-effective banking solution that Cannabis business owners can legally and consistently transport, deposit and transfer their cash from bank to bank. A high degree of opportunity exists in this industry. In addition, he said, the banking system is extremely slow to adapt. The Monarch platform will assist these banks in building deposits by allowing fully licensed THC/CBD farmers, hemp growers, supply chain, distribution, wholesale, manufacturing and dispensary initiatives to open DDA accounts for legitimate business and cash management services.

Multi-State Compliance

Many state and federally chartered financial institutions are now just starting to put process and policy in place for boarding certain sectors of the THC industry. After talking to over a 40 banks and credit unions in multiple states, Mr. Fea said it is clear that the need for a central underwriting, compliance and on-boarding platform is welcomed. Currently these banks and credit unions don't have the required platform in place to handle the needs of the THC industry. The Monarch platform seeks to provide the needed solutions for these banks to be able to board these merchants in an easy to use, compliant and scalable fashion.

Cannabis Banking Products

Currently, these products include:

●Business Checking Accounts
●Online Banking
●Business Invoicing
●Escrow services

Sombudha Adhikari Talks COVID-19: How Far Are We From A Vaccine?

Sombudha Adhikari

What Sombudha Adhikari Wants You To Know About Coronavirus Vaccine Development

WHITEHOUSE STATION, NJ, UNITED STATES, October 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The coronavirus has changed the world, and many people are anxious to know when a coronavirus vaccine will be available. Sombudha Adhikari, an expert in the biomechanics of COVID-19 vaccine development, is sharing the latest in coronavirus vaccine research.

According to Sombudha Adhikari, a coronavirus vaccine would work by introducing a weakened version of the coronavirus into the bloodstream. Then, the body would be forced to develop antibodies to the coronavirus. This would work to make the body much less likely to develop COVID-19 when exposed to the virus in day to day life.

More than 100 possible vaccines are currently under development across the world, according to Sombudha Adhikari. Even after a vaccine is proven to be effective, it's vital that the vaccine undergoes rigorous testing. Sombudha Adhikari says that this can take up to 18 months after the vaccine development is complete.

According to Sombudha Adhikari, vaccines typically take more than a decade to become ready for public use, due to rigorous, in-depth studies that need to be done to ensure that the vaccine is safe. Due to the pandemic, healthcare organizations are speeding up the process as much as the can. Sombudha Adhikari says that when a vaccine is ready, the public will be able to trust that it has been through all of the necessary testing processes to ensure it's safety.

Since COVID-19 only came to light in late 2019, researchers are still working hard to learn all that the can about the virus. Many scientists are using the information we know about Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) to gain insight into the creation of a coronavirus vaccine. According to Sombudha Adhikari, these illnesses are coronaviruses similar to the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.

Some of the vaccines that are currently being developed use mRNA, which instructs cells to make the protein that allows the coronavirus to enter human cells. This can force the cells to act as if they've already been infected, providing some immunity against the virus, according to Sombudha Adhikari. Other vaccines currently under development use DNA to trigger the body's immune response to a weakened version of the coronavirus.

Sombudha Adhikari says that it's possible that the coronavirus may be seasonal, much like the flu. While it may take some time to fully develop an effective coronavirus vaccine, the vaccine will prove to be incredibly valuable if COVID-19 comes and goes in waves. The downtime between cycles of the virus can allow time for people to get vaccinated and build immunity.

Venture Firm Expands Virtual Team to Mine Untapped Opportunities in SoCal and Beyond

While Silicon Valley relies on well-worn networks, early stage venture firm takes a fresh approach to cultivating transformative deep tech innovations

Most venture capitalists go for what’s easy: software, consumer products. But if you know what you’re doing, exciting opportunities can be found in places overlooked by traditional VC.”

— Krisztina “Z” Holly

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, October 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — LOS ANGELES, October 19, 2020 — The key to thriving as a venture capital investor in a post-pandemic world is to focus on the undiscovered and the undervalued, Krisztina “Z” Holly says.

Today, early stage venture capital firm Good Growth Capital formally announced that Holly joined their firm as West Coast Venture Partner, along with new Advisor Robert Poor, Ph.D. She just led the firm’s first deal from SoCal, Ateios, after working with the fund for the last year and a half sourcing and evaluating deals and supporting their portfolio companies around the country. Ateios has developed the first flexible, paper-thin customizable batteries—a key enabler for new technologies like wearable medical devices and low-cost IoT sensors. The company was founded by two UC San Diego graduate students.

“Most venture capitalists go for what’s easy to wrap their heads around: software, consumer products, the over-confident young founder who has already launched three startups,” Holly said. “But if you know what you’re doing, the most exciting opportunities can be found in places overlooked by traditional VC. There’s undiscovered commercial potential in the academic research and diverse talent here in SoCal and elsewhere around the country.”

She notes while other firms continue to trod the well-worn venture path in Silicon Valley, Boston and New York, she sees a motherlode of potential from less familiar sources: research labs, overlooked geographies, and experienced innovators who have deep industry expertise but don’t always fit the stereotype of tech entrepreneur.

An MIT-trained engineer, serial entrepreneur, and former Vice Provost for Innovation at USC, Holly has been investing in early stage transformative science innovators for nearly two decades, building centers at MIT and USC that cultivated and launched 39 venture-backed startups. She joins GGC as their first Venture Partner in the Southwest.

Also joining the team from Los Angeles, as an advisor, Poor adds, “I’m consistently impressed by Good Growth Capital’s deep experience, positive ethos and genuine willingness to help highly technical founders at a stage I don’t see with other venture capital firms.” Poor was co-founder of Ember Corporation (bought by SiliconLabs), creator of the ZigBee wireless networking protocol, and founder and chairman of Cool Energy World.

The timing is apt, as Good Growth Capital just launched their third fund, a $100M seed/series A fund that focuses on deep tech startups. And in January, they capped and closed their Infinite Corridor Fund, which helps de-risk diverse MIT-affiliated and transformative science pre-seed/seed startups and serves as a sourcing fund. GGC is picking up the pace while seed investing around the U.S. has sharply declined by more than 50%, according to the National Venture Capital Association, and as other venture funds are forced to shift focus during the pandemic and revert to their traditional networks.

Universities are a promising but untapped source of opportunity. According to the National Science Foundation, universities perform nearly half of all basic research in the U.S. In 2018, the federal government invested $71 billion in academic research, and since the Bayh-Dole Act in 1980, universities have had the right to patent and license those innovations. The top two regions in terms of university patenting, by far, are Massachusetts (500 patents in 2015) and Southern California (485, 388 of those from Los Angeles), according to the Alliance for SoCal Innovation, and SoCal universities do more than $7 billion in research annually. A 2018 Boston Consulting Group study of innovation ecosystems identified SoCal as the likely next major global tech ecosystem. Despite having more major research universities than anywhere else in the U.S., the region still only attracts one-tenth the venture capital of Silicon Valley, according to PwC/CB Insights’ MoneyTree report.

But evaluating and building transformative science and engineering startups is not easy. Fortunately, the team at GGC isn’t afraid to roll up its sleeves and has been honing its chops in deep tech ventures for nearly two decades. Founding Managing Partners Maureen Stancik Boyce, Ph.D. and Amy Salzhauer started working together in 2000, building companies and commercializing university research. The five managing partners of the firm (including David Mendez, John Osborne and Carolyne LaSala) collectively have helped found 18 startups worth billions of dollars.

Their approach and experience is paying off; Good Growth’s General Fund I is in the top decile in most key metrics among funds of the same vintage. Although the firm doesn't have a specific mandate for diversity, more than 70% of their portfolio comprises women- and minority-led companies. According to a 2018 Boston Consulting Group Study, diverse leadership teams lead to more innovation and nearly double the revenues from new products.

“One of Good Growth’s secret weapons is our powerful virtual network of Venture Partners and Advisors, who have strategic connections, deep operating experience and the science and engineering knowledge essential to cultivating our amazing portfolio,” said Stancik Boyce. “Although we’re headquartered in South Carolina and Massachusetts, our network has always given us unique access to geographically and demographically diverse deals, talent and partnerships. It’s what enables us to thrive during this pandemic.”

“Z and Robert’s extensive deep tech backgrounds mean they have a quick grasp of game-changing innovations and can really dive in to build value,” Salzhauer said. “We’re excited to have these industry veterans on board supporting our portfolio and expanding our reach into SoCal and beyond.”

About Good Growth Capital
Good Growth Capital is an early stage venture capital firm known for its exceptional expertise in finding, cultivating and assessing complex science and technology start-ups. Formed by a team of experienced operators, our strong capacity for understanding early stage science and technology investments enables us to invest well at an earlier stage than most venture capital firms, giving us priority access to high-performing investment opportunities. We invest in seed stage and Series A deals through our General Fund family and in pre-seed and seed stage companies through our Infinite Corridor Fund, which primarily targets MIT-affiliated and transformative science start-ups. GGC is majority women and minority-owned and is uniquely positioned geographically in both the Southeast and New England.

Emil Malak Pens an Op-ed Discussing the Need for Continuous Rapid Testing and Reopening the Economy

VOIP-PAL CEO Emil Malak

Voip-Pal (OTCQB:VPLM)

People should be tested every three days and every business should be equipped with a testing machine like a vending machine, capable of conducting a rapid coronavirus test with results in minutes.”

— Emil Malak

LONDON, ENGLAND, October 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — CEOCFO Magazine, an independent investment publication that highlights important technologies and companies, today announced it has published an op-ed (https://www.ceocfointerviews.com/emilmalakoped101420.html) by Voip-Pal CEO Emil Malak. Voip-Pal.com Inc., Voip-Pal (OTCQB: VPLM), a Bellevue, Washington based company is an inventor and pioneer of the switching technology now being used by many of the world's largest telecommunication and social networking companies, without which they could not connect Landline phone calls to Internet phone calls. Mr. Malak has other business ventures and is well versed in global politics and culture.

In this most recent article, Mr. Malak renewed his calls to expand continuous rapid testing as the solution to reopen the world’s economies. Malak wrote, “In the meantime, the only solution to return life to normal is by expanding continuous rapid testing. People should be tested every three days and every business should be equipped with a testing machine like a vending machine, capable of conducting a rapid coronavirus test and delivering results in minutes.”

Mr. Malak cited the recent about face by the World Health Organization saying, “Even the World Health Organization (WHO) has reversed course on lockdowns. The WHO initially told us that lockdowns were necessary to get the virus under control and would be the new normal. Now they have backtracked and realized lockdowns are ineffective and do much more harm than good.”

Malak went on to say, “The United Kingdom and other European countries should cancel their current lockdown plans and replace them with continuous rapid testing of all its population.
Additionally, we need to continue good practices like regular hand washing, maintain social distancing and wearing masks whenever indoors, or whenever near other people when outdoors.”

Mr. Malak also shared his thoughts on a study linking neanderthal genes and severe cases of COVID-19, “Scientists have found a link between neanderthal genes and severe COVID-19 cases. When researchers compared the genetic profiles of about 3,200 hospitalized COVID-19 patients and nearly 900,000 people from the general population, they found that a cluster of genes on chromosome 3 inherited from Neanderthals who lived more than 50,000 years ago is linked with 60% higher odds of needing hospitalization. According to the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, COVID-19 patients that had this gene cluster were also more likely to require artificial breathing assistance. The paper titled “The major genetic risk factor for severe COVID-19 is inherited from Neanderthals” was coauthored by Svante Paabo and Hugo Zeberg and published on September 30, 2020.”

Mr. Malak continued, “This newly discovered connection could be the reason why people in Europe, the Americas, Asia, India, and Indo-European Iran are more likely to develop a more lethal coronavirus than Africa and the Middle East.”
https://www.republicworld.com/lifestyle/health/neanderthal-dna-in-patients-can-can-make-covid-19-more-severe-study.html

Malak, who has many years of experience dealing with the U.S. patent system hinted he may be writing a future article on the current state of patents in the United States saying, “Unfortunately, owning a U.S. patent today can be meaningless. It is no longer an asset but a liability.”

Does Medicare Pay For Shingles Vaccine? – AARDY Insurance

AARDY Insurance Surfing

AARDY Insurance Surfing

Many seniors are surprised to learn that Medicare Part D covers the shingles vaccine, not Medicare Part B.

In the US, there are nearly 1 million new cases of shingles each year, so a doctor is likely to recommend that a senior receive the shingles vaccination.”

— Jonathan Breeze

MIAMI, FL, USA, October 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — AARDY is the nation's fastest Medicare Insurance Marketplace.
Customers can compare Medicare Supplements and Medicare Advantage plans to find the one that best fits their needs.

Shingles is a viral infection that mostly affects older adults or those with weakened immune systems. Typically, adults over age 50 receive the shingles vaccine.

Fortunately, there is a vaccine for shingles. It can prevent or lessen the effects of the shingles virus.
Many seniors are surprised to learn that Medicare Part D covers the shingles vaccine, not Medicare Part B.

AARDY CEO Jonathan Breeze commented:
‘In the US, there are nearly 1 million new cases of shingles each year, so a doctor is likely to recommend that a senior receive the shingles vaccination.

Most Medicare Part D plans cover 50% or more of the vaccine cost. Customer should check which vaccine brand their policy covers by checking the Part D drug formulary (guide). Having determined in which tier the vaccine is, they will then know how much their plan pays.

Note also that the amount paid depends on which brand of shingles vaccine is administered: Zostavax or Shingrix.

Zostavax requires only one injection. In 2018, the average cost was $220. So, if a Medicare Part D plan pays 50%, there would be a $110 out-of-pocket charge.

Shingrix requires two injections, 2 to 6 months apart. In 2018, the average cost was $140 per dose, or $280 total. If the Part D plan pays 50%, there would be a $140 out-of-pocket.

Those customers with a Medicare supplement, Medicare Advantage plan, or private health insurance, may pay less out-of-pocket.’

Each year, between October 15 and December 7, Medicare provides an opportunity to sign up or change plans during the Annual Enrollment Period (AEP). Other names are Medicare Fall Open Enrollment and the Annual Election Period.

AARDY donates 10% of annual profits each and every year to support AARDY Kids of Heroes™ charity partners.
Through 2020, AARDY is supporting Special Operations Warrior Foundation, a truly inspirational charity.

UK Civil Celebrant launches first Franchising Model For Civil Celebrants to share the success of Mountain Celebrations

Share your memories with Mountain Celebrations

UK Civil Celebrant Celebrates 10th year in business with Franchise Opportunity for entrepreneur's

Share your memories with Mountain Celebrations”

— Claire Mountain

UK, October 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Mountain Celebrations as part of their 10th successful year in business has launched a new Franchising Campaign. Giving the opportunity for entrepreneurs to launch their own business while operating under the Mountain Celebrations banner.

Mountain Celebrations, the UK Civil Celebrant group, is offering Entrepreneurs to sign up to be their own boss while benefiting from the security of a proven business model.

More information can be found at: https://www.mountaincelebrations.co.uk

The team explains that there are over 48,000 franchise outlets in the UK alone, which collectively contribute over £17 billion and 710,000 jobs to the economy. Now Mountain Celebrations is celebrating by opening up the opportunity for more entrepreneurs to launch their own successful business.

Entrepreneurs will join an active, engaging and professional family of Civil Celebrants who are on hand to design bespoke ceremonies across the UK & Worldwide. They have a reputation for creating Wedding, Funeral & Naming ceremonies that are delivered with warmth, professionalism and feeling, each ceremony written uniquely to the needs of either the family or couple.

The team explains that interested parties should do their research before applying. It’s also important to take stock of personal goals and find the right option to suit each entrepreneur’s needs. Taking stock of personal goals enables potential franchisees to determine how their next move can help them to be achieved.
As a franchisee, entrepreneurs will be personally responsible for the success of their business. For this reason, it’s important to create a business plan in order to prove to the franchisor that they have enough understanding of how the model works.

The process of setting up a franchise will include a series of upfront costs and may require a loan from the bank. The work of a franchisee is uniquely different to all other professions, but it still requires the use of key transferable skills.

Sales and management are among the most important, as explained by franchise consultant Jim Judy: “Selling your goods and services and managing the people who do are the biggest roles that franchisees play.”
The team at Mountain Celebrations encourages interested parties to reach out and contact them to begin the franchising process. This is a chance for entrepreneurs to impress the team with their passion and knowledge. This franchise opportunity is the first of its kind in the world of Celebrants. The proven business strategy has been successful for 10 years, and now Mountain Celebrations wants to share its knowledge, experience and reputation with you.
Join the team, and enjoy a professional career, that also gives a little back, share the memories of its clients not just in the UK but Worldwide.

Those outside of the UK who like this opportunity, must check the legalities of buying and running a UK based business in your chosen country.

Full details of the new campaign can be found at the URL above.
