Twentyeight Health is a telemedicine company expanding access to women’s health and reproductive care

New York’s Twentyeight Health is taking the wildly telemedicine services for women’s health popularized by companies like Nurx and bringing them to a patient population that previously hadn’t had access. 

The mission to provide women who are Medicaid or underinsured should not be deprived of the same kinds of care that patients who have more income security or better healthcare coverage enjoy, according to the company’s founder, Amy Fan.

The mission, and the company’s technology, have managed to convince a slew of investors who have poured $5.1 million in seed funding into the new startup. Third Prime led the round, which included investments from Town Hall Ventures, SteelSky Ventures, Aglaé Ventures, GingerBread Capital, Rucker Park Capital, Predictive VC, and angel investors like Stu Libby, Zoe Barry, and Wan Li Zhu.

“Women who are on Medicaid, who are underinsured or without health insurance often struggle to find access to reproductive health

San Antonio shopping center owned by company tied to Nate Paul heading for foreclosure

A shopping center that was once home to dance hall Midnight Rodeo — and is owned by an affiliate of World Class Holdings, a company founded by Nate Paul — may be headed for foreclosure next month.

Paul is the Austin businessman at the center of the scandal currently engulfing Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.

The property at 12260 Nacogdoches is set to be auctioned off Nov. 3, Bexar County property records show, although county officials have repeatedly postponed foreclosure sales due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Sonora Bank first pushed to foreclose in December and subsequently filed notices again this spring and summer, most recently last month. The bank’s promissory note is for roughly $4.7 million.

Two other San Antonio properties owned by entities connected to World Class were slated for foreclosure this summer.

Lenders sought to foreclose on warehouses at 639 Lanark on Aug. 4, a sale that was

Bailiwick Clothing Company Has Opened a Pop-up Shop at the Wharf

Known for its signature “202” DC-area code T-shirt, Bailiwick Clothing Company has opened a new pop-up store that not only includes its own designs, but it’s partnering with Shea Yeleen, another Black-owned DC company, to carry the skincare brand’s handmade products.

“This is the second time we’ve done a pop-up store in DC,” says JC Smith, a co-Founder of Bailiwick Clothing. “Two years ago, we did a summer pop-up at the Shay in Shaw with the organization Think Local First DC, and it was highly successful. This time, we were drawn to the energy and excitement of the Wharf. We always want to be in vibrant, high-activity neighborhoods, and the Wharf is the perfect place for all of that.”

The company started in 2015. Brothers JC and Jeff Smith later said the impetus was what they saw as lack of “cool T-shirts that represented DC.” While the company is still

Bugatti could set revenue record in 2020, but will delay second model, company president says

Bugatti is still making bank.

The VW Group-owned hypercar maker could set a record year for revenue in 2020 despite the global economic slowdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic, but is still feeling its effects.

Bugatti president Stephan Winkelmann told Bloomberg that plans for a second model that would slot in below its $3 million Chiron hypercar have been put on hold.

“We had talks about a second-model lineup,” Winkelmann told the outlet. “This was now blocked due to the coronavirus crisis; we’re not talking about what’s coming next.”

This is the second time this year the VW Group-owned automaker has announced a development delay for the new vehicle, which a company source told Automotive News would be neither a sedan or SUV.

“We want to do something

New cosmetics company ‘Biden Beauty’ promotes voting for the Democratic candidate

With less than a month away from the U.S. presidential election, companies are getting creative in how they encourage American consumers to vote.

This includes a new fashion and cosmetics brand known as “Biden Beauty.”

The Democrat-leaning company made its social media debut towards the end of September and has been serving as a voter registration resource while encouraging U.S. adults to vote for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

KYLIE JENNER’S INSTAGRAM POST CAUSED A ‘SURGE’ IN VOTER ACTIVITY ONLINE, ORGANIZATION SAYS

“Voting is crucial and statistics show that Gen Z (those born between 1996 and 2015) can make or break this election,” Biden Beauty wrote in its first Instagram post. “For 2020, Pew Research projects one out of ten eligible voters will represent Gen Z, which will compose 24 million potential voters. But among eligible Gen Z voters from the 2019 primaries, data showed only 30% voted, a historically

Clothing company Patagonia joins Idaho Conservation League lawsuit against EPA | Local News

BOISE — High-profile outdoor clothing and gear company Patagonia last week joined an Idaho Conservation League lawsuit against the Environmental Protection Agency.

The Idaho Conservation League has joined with the Sierra Club, the Puget Soundkeeper Alliance in western Washington, and Mi Familia Vota, a Latino-focused national voter participation group, in suing the EPA over concerns about water quality.

“The Trump administration issued a new version earlier this year of the Waters of the United States rule, and we feel it is far less protective than the existing rule,” said Marie Callaway Kellner, conservation program director for the Idaho Conservation League. Currently, neither a 2015 rule change nor the Trump administration’s rule are the law of the land; with the litigation and attempts to repeal the laws, a rule that was in place in 2008 is actually governing waters in the United States.

“We are very concerned because this latest version
