Bra startup True&Co sold to Calvin Klein owner PVH

True&Co., an e-commerce company founded with the mission of disrupting the lingerie industry by creating a new business model for selling bras and other undergarments, has been sold. Phillips Van Heusen (PVH), owner of Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger and Izod, among other iconic brands, has acquired the startup and plans to use it to move deeper into online sales and big data analytics connected to that.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but sources with direct knowledge of the deal said investors mostly got their money back, but nothing more. The deal value was in the “tens of millions.” True&Co had raised a reported $13 million from a strong list of investors that included Crosslink Capital, Cowboy Ventures, First Round, SoftBank, SoftTech VC and the VTF (fomerly the Vegas Tech Fund).

We’ve reached out to PVH — which has operations in 40 countries and last year made $8 billion in annual revenues — to see if we can get any details or confirmation on the price. We have yet to hear back from PVH. Michelle Lam, the co-founder and CEO of the company, replied to our questions with a short description of today as “an amazing day for the company.”  A True&Co spokesperson declined to give any details on the price but did confirm that the brand would remain.

In the meantime, PVH’s CEO and chairman, Emanuel Chirico, noted in a statement that the deal underscores the company’s interest in doing more on digital platforms.

“Today’s announcement illustrates our commitment to driving innovation across our business and demonstrates our commitment to making strategic investments in our digital platforms to support our long-term growth initiatives,” he said. “We believe that we can leverage the analytics tools of this data-driven company, while leveraging PVH’s intimates category expertise, including global brand management, product know-how and supply chain.”

True&Co., founded in 2012, was one of the earlier movers in the wave of vertically integrated e-commerce startups that use technology to move into and disrupt traditionally non-tech areas of business. Others in the world of fashion have included Warby Parker, but you could also count the multitude of on-demand startups like Uber and the Dollar Shave Club among those following the same concept. (Some of course do better than others.)

Bras are a particularly challenging area because even in a physical retail environment, it can be tricky to get the right fit.

While some other bra startups, such as ThirdLove, use your cameraphone plus questions to measure and figure out your contours and sizes, True&Co’s model was based on a “bra quiz” that asks you some questions based on a bra that you already own and some basics about how you look.

 Using data that it holds about well-known bra brands, and your own feedback on the size that you own, it figures out what would be a good bra for you. It then sends you five bras that fit the bill and you pay for what you want, and send back what you do not.

It seems that while the company definitely attracted attention — some 5 million women tried out its bra quiz — it’s not clear how many of those actually converted into paying customers.

Whatever the state of True&Co’s business was by the time of its exit, one interesting opportunity going forward will be in how PVH leverages the startup’s platform to help sell its other brands.

Calvin Klein has an extensive line of underwear, and among PVH’s other holdings are Warner and Olga, two other top names in the world of lingerie, and Speedo, a swimwear and active wear brand. It seems likely that these will either augment or replace True&Co’s existing line of products with these for better economies of scale, or have the True team create True-like experiences for these brands individually.

Utilis takes top water innovation prize at Imagine H2O for tech that finds leaks underground

An Israeli tech startup called Utilis has taken top honors at Imagine H2O this year, for technology that can detect underground leaks in underground, potable water supply systems through analysis of satellite imagery. Americans waste 1 trillion gallons of water every year thanks to leaky faucets, faulty sprinkler systems and other small systems. Utilis’ tech can find leaks to systems that are much bigger, serving urban markets, and help utilities to repair them before the waste has a detrimental effect on people living nearby.

Each year, IH2O rallies tech startups to develop solutions for particular problems around our global water supply. This year’s theme was simply, “data.” IH2O President Scott Bryan said, “Data is a building block you must have in water. Communities cannot make big decisions around a desalination plant if they don’t have data about leaks, or how much energy it may takes to move water from point a to point b, for example. Without data you can’t plan, and you can’t do things, big things, in water.”

Judges at the IH2O annual event ranged from Silicon Valley venture investors to technologists from water utilities and large industrials, to sustainability experts and policy makers. All 12 companies invited to be finalists in this competition were accepted into the IH2O accelerator. But Utilis also scored a cash prize of $25,000 and will have the option of free business services and mentorship provided by partners of IH2O.

The announcement of the winning water tech innovators fell on a date when President Donald Trump sent an aggressive budget to Congress seeking to dramatically cut funding for the E.P.A., and the United Nations both of which are running multiple initiatives to study and conserve the world’s clean water supply. For example, the E.P.A. runs regional projects like the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. And the United Nations recognizes access to safe and clean drinking water and water for sanitation are human rights.

 That budget is getting pushback. But no matter the outcome, it’s at least heartening to know that if the U.S. government stops supporting such initiatives financially, and otherwise, some (if too few) private sector organizations are banding together to find technological approaches to water conservation, and protection.

Utilis co-founders at the Imagine H2O Water Gala 2017 in San Francisco.

3 Tips For Making Your Move Easier

Moving to a new location can be a very stressful and difficult experience. You have to give up all of your old expectations, habits, and traditions. You also give up all of your local support and friends, which can make moving depressing and even lonely. Plus, there are many challenges and inconveniences that come with moving. Whether you’re moving for work, school, or just to see more of the world, it is not easy. Luckily, there are things that you can do to make your moving experience less stressful and inconvenient. Here are a few tips to make your move easier and more enjoyable.

Image result for 3 Tips For Making Your Move Easier

Plan in Advance

Don’t wait until the last minute to get your move planned. Make a checklist or two for yourself and follow them while you are moving. Don’t leave anything to chance when it comes to moving your home. Often, people get so caught up in the big picture that they forget the details, only to regret it later, after the move. For example, make sure that you plan in advance for New York mail forwarding from a company like Fulfillment Services USA. Relying on experts like this can take a lot of the pressure of moving off of yourself.

Pack Less Stuff

When you move, you have a valuable opportunity to clear out a lot of the clutter in your life. In a way, moving can be seen as a chance to get rid of stuff you don’t really need and to streamline your life going forward. Before you start packing, ask yourself if the items you are bringing are both really useful and really enjoyable. Don’t both bringing anything that doesn’t work for you. When you unpack at your new home, you will be glad you didn’t bring a lot of junk.

Get Help With the Details

Make sure you hire professionals for things that really matter, and don’t try to do everything yourself. Get professional movers to help you transport large items. Don’t depend on your friend to help you, either. Even your most loyal friends don’t want to help you move giant pieces of furniture or multiple boxes. Instead, shop around and find a decently priced company that can do the heavy lifting for you. When you get to your new home and don’t have any back problems, you’ll be glad that you did.

Algoriz lets you build trading algorithms with no coding required

Traders who have an idea for a money-making algorithm have two choices: learn to code themselves, or hire a great engineer. But neither of these two options are realistic, especially for part-time traders who don’t have a large bankroll behind them.

Meet Algoriz, a startup participating in Y Combinator’s Winter 2017 batch. Soraya Taghavi, founder and CEO of Algoriz, previously worked in trading at Goldman Sachs, where she noticed a disconnect between traders with ideas and people actually able to code technical trading algorithms. So she created a platform that lets any trader write algorithms in plain English. 

Here’s how it works: To create an algorithm you could write “If SNAP is up 3% from yesterday, and the S&P is down, sell 100 shares of SNAP.” The platform also supports more complicated technical indicators, like Bollinger Bands, exponential moving averages and moving average convergence divergence.

You also can specify things like when to take a profit or the maximum percent loss you’re willing to take. Algoriz takes these inputs and coverts them behind the scenes into a working algorithm that runs 24/7 on the startup’s platform.

screen-shot-2017-03-03-at-10-18-38-am

Algoriz plans to build in brokerage functionality to let your algorithms actually initiate trades whenever your specified parameters are met — but for now, it sends you an email notification, meaning you’ll have to actually make the trade yourself. Once this functionality is built in, they’ll charge users who choose to use other brokerage firms, but the platform will remain free for users who use Algoriz as their broker.

Algoriz wants to expand into a marketplace that can connect people with capital with successful traders who have created profitable algorithms on the platform. Algoriz also plans to broaden the type of supported securities beyond equities, so users can create algorithms to trade things like currency and futures.

Snapchat soars again on second day of trading

Snap Inc., the parent of Snapchat, has been off to the races with its debut on the stock market.

Yesterday, the stock closed at $24.48, a 44% gain from the IPO price of $17. And today it’s gone up a bit further, surpassing $29 at one point, an almost 20% increase from the close of yesterday. Shares later fell to $27, but it’s still on track for a 10% gain for day two.

This is another sign that Snap left money on the table. Even if they sold their shares for $19 or $20, they would have made a good first impression on the stock market and netted themselves hundreds of millions more dollars.

But there’s no guarantee that this surge will continue. Often, the initial excitement surrounding IPOs dies off.

And there are growing problems for Snap, which faces a competitive landscape. Atish Davda, CEO of EquityZen points out,  the company’s”growth is slowing and still faces tremendous pressure from Facebook and has to prove its long term viability.”

 Facebook-owned Instagram replicated Snapchat’s “stories” feature last year and quickly saw tremendous success. It seems that Snap’s slowed user growth occurred around that time.

As of today’s trading, Snap now has a market cap of about $38 billion. This is substantially higher than their private market valuation and it’s also a bit larger than some major consumer brands like American Airlines and Hilton.

Time will tell whether their trajectory looks more like Facebook, which has grown substantially since its 2012 IPO or Twitter, which has been subject to significant volatility.

Now the United Arab Emirates wants to put people on Mars, too

The United Arab Emirates has announced its own plan to join the race to get to Mars, revealing a hope that it might be the first to set up colonies on the red planet.

This is part of the Mars 2117 Project that’s been announced by the wealthy member states of the Emirates, and they’re not going to be happy with driving a remote controlled car around up there and looking at stones either, as the plan is to have a fully “inhabitable human settlement” in existence in the distant future.

The only problem for space enthusiasts is the timescale. They’ve given themselves 100 years to do it in, which is quite a large window of opportunity. We won’t be around to moan at them should it not run to schedule.

A (very) long term project

Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed said the work starts not on building rockets and space suits and exciting stuff, but in first teaching the kids how to be good astronauts. He said: “The Mars 2117 Project is a long term project, where our first objective is to develop our educational system so our sons will be able to lead scientific research across the various sectors.”

So that’s a degree in space ship maintenance and hydroponics for the next couple of generations, before anyone even gets to think about what they’d do to stop themselves going mad on the way there and the luxury item they’d take.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has been busy talking about it on Twitter too, where he says there will be a push for a space sciences focus in the nation’s universities, also popping up images of a few renders of really quitefuturistic looking possible Mars bases.

Nintendo Switch accessories: items you need to make the most of your console

You’ve ordered your Nintendo Switch , you’ve ordered the launch title you want most, you’re absolutely ready to make the most of your new Nintendo console, right? Well, almost.

The Nintendo Switch comes with everything you absolutely definitely need to get the console up and running already in the box, but there are plenty of additional accessories available that will without a doubt enhance your playing experience and unlock the console’s full potential.

To help you figure out what’s out there, what it’s used for, and whether or not it’s actually going to be useful for you , we’ve rounded up a bunch of the key first and third party Switch accessories right here for your perusal.

If you’re not particularly enamored with the Joy-Con controllers and want something that’s a little more traditional you should consider picking up the Nintendo Switch Pro controller.

Though the Joy-Con controllers do have a grip to slide onto to form a single device, it doesn’t have a traditional D-pad and nor does it look quite as ergonomically sound as the Pro controller for longer play sessions.

With its motion controls, HD rumble and Amiibo support it’s a solid alternative to the Joy-Con controllers.

Despite the benefits of the Pro controller for the single player, it might also be worth picking up some extra Joy-Con controllers if you’re fond of multiplayer gaming.

You might as well face the fact that not everyone in your life will have picked up a Switch. Though you could make the purchase of Joy-Con controllers a prerequisite for entry to your home, it might be better for your personal relationships to have a few extra controllers on hand for any impromptu multiplayer sessions.

You can get them in the standard grey or a more interesting neon blue and red combination for £69.99 / $79.99 . Or if you’re only looking for one, you can buy them individually for £42.99 / $49.99 each.

If you’d rather not buy a Pro controller but you would like your additional Joy-Con controllers to be slightly more comfortable when they’re being used separately, you could always buy the grip kit.

This kit containing two controller grips and two thumb grips will make your slim Joy-Con controllers slightly bulkier and more akin to a traditional controller shape which should reduce any discomfort that would arise in a longer play session.

You can find it for $14.99 / £14.99.

If you’re a physical media fan rather than a download fan, you should probably consider purchasing a game card case for when you take your Switch on the go. Even when storing your games at home it’s a much more compact way of keeping your Switch cartridges in order than piling up each of the individual game boxes.

This compact one from HORI holds 24 game cards and 2 microSD cards, which should keep you going for a while. You can purchase it for $9.99 / £8.99 .

True LAN parties are possible on the Nintendo Switch, but only if you have an Ethernet adapter as the console doesn’t actually have a standard Ethernet port itself.

If you’d like to connect up to 10 docked Switch consoles for an intense Splatoon 2 tournament with your friends with no dodgy wireless connection worries,  you’ll need to pick up one of these. It’s not been confirmed whether or not an official Nintendo adapter is necessary or if one you already have will suffice. If you’d rather be safe than sorry, though, you can pick up the official Nintendo Switch adapter for£26.99 / $29.99 .

No, the Joy-Con grip that comes boxed with your console will not charge your Joy-Con controllers when they’re slid onto it, but considering the Joy-Con controllers have around 20 hours of battery life in them, this shouldn’t prove to be too much of a problem.

However, we all have those times post-play where we just throw our controller on the sofa and walk away. If you just know you’re likely to play with the grip frequently and forget to reattach the controllers to your docked console this could be a purchase worth considering.

It’s not the cheapest luxury, though, at £24.99 / $29.99 on the official Nintendo site.

You buy protective accessories for your phone, you buy them for your tablet, and we’d say it’s worth buying them for your Nintendo Switch to keep it secure and safe when it’s undocked and on the move.

You can get this nifty Mario case officially licensed by Nintendo which includes a screen protector, earbuds, character-branded Joy-Con Armor Guards, thumb caps, cleaning cloth, and applicator for $29.99 / £29.99 .

If, however, you’re less concerned about themed branding there’s also this starter kit from Snakebyte which comes in at £17.99 / $19.99 .

If you’re not really into the idea of buying and hoarding game cards and would rather digitally purchase your Switch games, you’ll definitely want to look into buying a microSD card.

The Nintendo Switch only has 32GB of internal memory and considering games like The Legend of Zelda will take up to around 13GB of storage, the ability to expand the console’s memory is essential.

The Switch will support microSD and SDHC cards as well as SDXC cards of up to 2TB, even though the latter aren’t actually available for purchase yet.

These are our picks of the best microSD cards for you to buy .

Think you’ll probably play the Switch in tabletop mode a lot? Then you’ll want to look into purchasing the HORI playstand.

Although the Switch has a flip out leg on its rear that will support it, it doesn’t really leave any clearance for plugging a charging cable into the USB-C port on the console’s base. The HORI playstand will allow for this, though, as it lifts the console off the surface you’re playing on as well as offering adjustable angles for more comfortable play.

As far as Switch accessories go, it’s not overly expensive either at £9.99 / $12.99 .

Planning to use the Switch on the go a lot? It could be worth investing in a sturdy external battery pack if you haven’t already.

The Switch’s portable battery life isn’t unreasonable but it isn’t stellar either and since you can’t guarantee you’re always going to be near a plug socket to top up its charge a back up power source will rarely go wrong. Just make sure you have a USB-C cable to connect it.
