Peoples Equity Group named as presenter at 2022 MoneyShow

Brought to you by Imperium Group

Representatives of Peoples Equity Group, a direct-to-consumer, technology and e-commerce brand aggregator, were announced as speakers at the annual MoneyShow in May 2022. Peoples Equity Group, known for managing assets for passive investors, scaling brands up and then exiting them in rollups to private equity companies for possibly much higher multiples or valuations, will be the technology investing headline and “alternate investing” keyword sponsor on May 9, 2022.

The MoneyShow is one of America’s largest accredited investor conferences and was founded over forty years ago. The conference focuses on helping investors better understand the intricacies of managing their assets through in-depth education and advice. The theme of this year’s event, which runs from May 9-11, 2022, at Bally’s/Paris in Las Vegas, will be wealth-building strategies for any market environment.

“We are excited about the opportunity to present at the MoneyShow and to meet with some of the best financial experts in America,” said Chief Operations Officer Dakota Smith. “It will be inspiring to be among so many people who are passionate about learning strategies for potentially diversifying their assets. It will definitely be a can’t-miss event.”

The company’s presentation will focus on market disruption, technology investing and the strategies that Peoples Equity Group utilizes for accredited and institutional investors who become co-investors in the brands the company acquires.

“We are ready to give attendees information that is relevant to markets and that is actionable,” Smith adds.

A panel of private equity advisors and fund managers will also be co-presenting at the conference to discuss their past investment projects with the group, including why ecommerce is so fascinating to the private equity space. It is a market that generated over $11.4 billion worth of investments into ecommerce aggregators in the last 12 months. 

“We hope that our presentation will be both motivating and practical for everyone,” says Smith.

In other news, Peoples Equity Group states that it is working with a prominent middle market advisory firm that is spearheading a $100 million raise for the group and has facilitated debt and equity raises for other fintech and aggregation projects in the past few years.  

“They have assisted in us putting together a group of $100 million worth of investors, which will help us expand our e-commerce acquisitions as well as some supply chain and e-commerce manufacturing acquisitions we are looking to make,” Smith says. “We are now in the process of finishing our due diligence on deals for private placements into some brands. We look forward to announcing more about these developments in the near future.”

Peoples Equity Group says that it is prepared to help make this year’s MoneyShow memorable for all who come to the event.

“We believe deeply in the conference’s aim and will do everything we can to help people receive unbiased guidance that can help them in any economic environment,” Smith says.

Peoples Equity Group has 25 years of experience in the e-commerce mergers and acquisitions space. The company has built a successful track record with large private equity groups that buy multiple e-commerce brands at a time and then aggregate the data. Peoples Equity Group focuses on middle-market ecommerce businesses valued between $5M-$20M while allowing the Founder to stay on and help scale the company.

Nothing announces official launch date for new Ear (stick) AirPods alternatives

Nothing announces official launch date for new Ear (stick) AirPods alternatives

True to form, Nothing has just announced the full reveal date for its upcoming audio product, Ear (stick). 

So, an announcement about an announcement. You’ve got to hand it to Carl Pei’s marketing department, they never miss a trick.

What we’re saying is that although we still have ‘nothing’ conclusive about the features, pricing or release date for the Ear (stick) except an image of another model holding them (and we’ve seen plenty of those traipsing down the catwalk recently), we do have a date – the day when we’ll be granted official access to this information. 

That day is October 26. Nothing assures us that on this day we’ll be able to find out everything, including pricing and product specifications, during the online Ear (stick) Reveal, at 3PM BST (which is 10AM ET, or 1AM on Wednesday if you’re in Sydney, Australia) on nothing.tech (opens in new tab)

Any further information? A little. Nothing calls the Ear (stick), which is now the product’s official name, “the next generation of Nothing sound technology”, and its “most advanced audio product yet”. 

But that’s not all! Apparently, Ear (stick) are “half in-ear true wireless earbuds that balance supreme comfort with exceptional sound, made not to be felt when in use. They’re feather-light with an ergonomic design that’s moulded to your ears. Delivered in a unique charging case, inspired by classic cosmetic silhouettes, and compactly formed to simply glide into pockets.” 

Opinion: I need more than a lipstick-style case

It’s no secret that I want Nothing’s earbuds to succeed in world dominated by AirPods; who doesn’t love a plucky, eccentric underdog? 

But in order to become some of the best true wireless earbuds on the market, there is room for improvement over the Nothing Ear 1, the company’s inaugural earbuds. 

Aside from this official ‘news’ from Nothing, leaked images and videos of the Ear (stick) have been springing up all over the internet (thank you, developer Kuba Wojciechowski) and they depict earbuds that look largely unchanged, which is a shame. 

For me, the focus needs to shift from gimmicks such as a cylindrical case with a red section at the end which twists up like a lipstick. Don’t get me wrong, I love a bit of theater, but only if the sound coming from the earbuds themselves is top dog. 

As the natural companions for the Nothing Phone 1, it makes sense for the Ear (stick) to take a place similar to that of Apple’s AirPods 3, where the flagship Ear (1) sit alongside the AirPods Pro 2 as a flagship offering. 

See, that lipstick case shape likely will not support wireless charging. That and the rumored lack of ANC means the Ear (stick) is probably arriving as the more affordable option in Nothing’s ouevre. 

For now, we sit tight until October 26.

YouTube could make 4K videos exclusive to Premium subscribers

You might soon have to buy YouTube Premium to watch 4K YouTube videos, a new user test suggests.

According to a Reddit thread (opens in new tab) highlighted on Twitter by leaker Alvin (opens in new tab), several non-Premium YouTube users have reported seeing 4K resolution (and higher) video options limited to YouTube Premium subscribers on their iOS devices. For these individuals, videos are currently only available to stream in up to 1440p (QHD) resolution.

The apparent experiment only seems to be affecting a handful of YouTube users for now, but it suggests owner Google is toying with the idea of implementing a site-wide paywall for access to high-quality video in the future.

So, after testing up to 12 ads on YouTube for non-Premium users, now some users reported that they also have to get a Premium account just to watch videos in 4K. pic.twitter.com/jJodoAxeDpOctober 1, 2022

It’s no secret that Google has been searching for new ways to monetize its YouTube platform in recent months. In September, the company introduced five unskippable ads for some YouTube users as part of a separate test – an unexpected development that, naturally, didn’t go down well with much of the YouTube community. 

A resolution paywall seems a more palatable approach from Google. While annoying, the change isn’t likely to provoke the same level of ire from non-paying YouTube users as excessive ads, given that many smartphones still max out at QHD resolution anyway. 

Of course, if it encourages those who do care about high-resolution viewing to invest in the platform’s Premium subscription package, it may also be more lucrative for Google. After all, YouTube Premium, which offers ad-free viewing, background playback and the ability to download videos for offline use, currently costs $11.99 / £11.99 / AU$14.99 per month.

Suffice to say, the subscription service hasn’t taken off in quite the way Google would’ve hoped since its launch in 2014. Only around 50 million users are currently signed up to YouTube Premium, while something close to 2 billion people actively use YouTube on a monthly basis. 

Might the addition of 4K video into Premium’s perk package bump up that number? Only time will tell. We’ll be keeping an eye on our own YouTube account to see whether this resolution paywall becomes permanent in the coming months.
