Adam Milstein is an investor and pro-Israeli activist who has done quite a bit for Jewish Americans. He has also worked with Hager Pacific Properties, a real estate company, for many years and has served the company as a sales agent as well as a managing partner. Adam Milstein co-founded the Israeli American Council (IAC) in 2007 in the city of Los Angeles and now serves as the organization as its national chairman of the board.
Over the years, Adam Milstein has helped to grow the IAC so that it now has twelve regional councils in different parts of the U.S.A. He also co-founded the Milstein Family Foundation with this wife, Gila, and has done a lot to help the Jewish American community through the foundation. Milstein has worked very hard to further the goals of these organizations and as nonprofits, the most challenging part has been securing the funding needed to continue their work. Adam Milstein and his wife not only donate plenty of money to pro-Israel organizations, but they have also donated a lot of their time.
Adam Milstein created the Donor Forum in order to quicken the process of finding funding. The Forum works by letting organizations present their cases in just 15 minutes during a lunch and helps to personally connect philanthropists with the organizations they wish to help. The Donors Forum requires its members to donate at least $10,000 a year to the causes they choose, and any organization that wishes to make a pitch to receive funding from donors must pass a pre-screening first. This ensures that the organizations that the Donor Forum works with are legitimate.
One benefit of being a part of the Donor Forum is that organizations can find out if they will receive funding very quickly. This allows them to get back to the work they are normally focused on. There are many different organizations and presenters who work with the Donor Forum, and a couple of these include JLens and the Reservists on Duty. As a pioneer, Adam Milstein and others are now wondering if anyone else will follow in the footsteps of the Donor Forum to create something similar.
GreenskyCredit is a thriving financial technology company that is revolutionizing the way people obtain loans for a variety of purposes. According to Wikipedia, the company was co-founded in 2006 by David Zalik in Atlanta, GA.
A New Way to Obtain Funding
Unlike other companies that provide financing for their customers, GreenskyCredit actually doesn’t loan the money. Instead, they partner with federally insured creditors who have a reputation for excellence. Greensky Credit works as the middleman by obtaining the capital and brokering the deal between the financial institution and the customer. For example, a contractor will negotiate with a Greensky Credit representative to help the homeowner get ideal terms on financing for a remodeling project or a new build.
Greensky Credit has enjoyed an incredible amount of success since its humble beginnings. It was piloted by David Zalik himself, from his basement for years. Once the company began to gain traction, it achieved unheard of success to the tune of 3.6 billion in total revenue to date as quoted in a recent article posted to Bloomberg Businessweek. That figure is steadily climbing and projected to continue over the next several years.
One of the key factors of the companies continued success is its commitment to providing funding to lenders with favorable credit scores and history. This ensures that the loans are paid and the company is able to collect their share of the returns they are given for bringing the customer to the bank that is lending the money. The company also has employees who reach out to the customer and contractors to present an opportunity for a loan rather than waiting for the customer to come to the lender.
It stands to reason that Greensky Credit will continue to be one of the top financial technology companies in the market. Its revolutionary concept has brought a new dimension to standard practices and paves the way for other companies to follow its lead.
