To Make 16,000% Gains, Look at Kim Kardashian’s Underwear

Published

on

In September of 2019, reality TV star Kim Kardashian West launched an underwear startup called SKIMS.

Today, less than two years later, the company is worth $1.6 billion.

Uh, what? How is a 2-year-old underwear company worth more than $1 billion? And more importantly, how can you use the answer to that question to make a fortune for yourself?

That’s what I’ll cover today.

$145 Million of Underwear

SKIMS is creating what it calls the next generation of underwear, loungewear, and shapewear.

Its shapewear, for example, “enhances a body’s curves,” and its underwear can stretch to twice its normal size.

And as it turns out, those attributes — in conjunction with Kardashian’s star-power — have been able to attract significant sales. According to The New York Times, the company brought in $145 million in 2020 sales, and it expects that figure to double in 2021.

Those are some big numbers for a young startup.

But in today’s world, they’re becoming more and more common…

Three Reasons a Startup Can Become So Valuable So Quickly

To simplify things a bit, there are three main reasons a startup can quickly become so successful nowadays — and so valuable:

  1. Because of the internet, new trends can travel across the globe at the speed of light.
  2. By leveraging social networks like Instagram, a company can build its brand quickly. Kardashian, for example, has about 210 million followers (!) on Instagram that track her every move. That’s a massive audience she can advertise to, for free.
  3. As investors have discovered the market-beating returns of startups, they’re more willing to invest large sums of capital on potential “winners” at their earliest stage. The thing is, not only does this vast capital help startups grow faster, but it also dramatically boosts a company’s valuation: essentially, if a startup raises hundreds of millions of dollars, that can push its valuation to $1 billion or more. In the case of SKIMS, for example, the company has already raised $154 million — and that funding pushed its valuation to $1.6 billion.

There Are 746 Billion-Dollar Startups

Those three reasons help explain why SKIMS has plenty of company today in the billion-dollar startup club.

Have you heard the term “unicorn”? A unicorn is a private startup worth at least $1 billion.

A billion-dollar startup used to be so rare that it might as well have been a mythological unicorn. But today, because of the reasons I mentioned above, there are hundreds of them.

In fact, according to research company CB Insights, currently there are 746 of them. Furthermore, in Q2 of 2021, 136 new unicorns were created! Check it out:

Maximize Your Returns

So now you know: startups are hitting billion-dollar valuations in record time.

The thing is, by getting into these companies early — before they become billion-dollar unicorns, and well before they go public in an IPO — you can potentially make a fortune.

For example, if you invest in a startup when it’s worth, say, $10 million…

And you sell it when its worth $1.6 billion, like SKIMS…

You could potentially make about 160x times your money.

That’s enough to turn a $5k investment into $800,000.

The new WalletConnect feature also “requires the latest version of the SecuX Mobile App (App version 1.8.0),” the release noted while adding that after you update your wallet on SecuXess web application, “disconnect from the USB cable and enable Bluetooth function on the wallet as well as your mobile phone or tablet, login to your SecuX Mobile App and proceed to App update.”

New P2P Network Connects Executives to Solve Business Problems

Published

on

A new peer-to-peer network promises to match up executives so they can get right down to business.

The Mercury Company is accepting applications for its vendor-free network that allows executives to connect with each other without having to navigate through salespeople and other distractions at industry events.

“Mercury is a secure, vetted network geared toward technology executives who don’t have the time to sort through a massive personal Rolodex to figure out which of their many contacts has the right mix of background, experience, and successes to help answer mission-critical business decisions,” CEO Leah Williams said.

Williams said she created Mercury after realizing tech leaders needed help sifting through the noise that often hampered their efforts to obtain unbiased data.

“My clients attended to meet each other, not to listen to industry trends, and not to hear a sales pitch. That made it clear to me that these leaders needed a vendor-free space for collaborating regularly and even for just the comfort of knowing that others who faced similar challenges were able to overcome them.”

Peer Match utilizes AI technology to connect experienced counterparts. Mercury’s more traditional channels, Forum and Private Chat, are organized in five levels, arranged by company revenue, that lets members interact with full confidence they will reach the audience most qualified to answer. Additional benefits include vendor references, earning top contributor rewards, and invitations to exclusive programs in select cities.
