Starting a business is not an easy thing to do. it requires a very specific idea of what you want to do in the sources and resources to carry that plan out. Usually when a company first starts it will get a loan from a bank or other entity to give it the capital it needs to do things. Sometimes this leads to problems as loans as are given based off a person’s credit. This is a barrier to entry to the market that many companies run into. Equities First Holdings is a alternative lending entity that is giving more options to lenders. They give out loans based off of stocks rather than credit. This is another way for companies to flourish. Now it is easier than ever to start your own business and to have the funds that you need. Equities First Holdings and its leaders did this exclusively for business for business owners.

So who is Sahm Adrangi? Mr. Adrangi is a founder and managing principal at Kerrisdale Capital. Since 2009, Mr. Adrangi has used the firm to help his clients find short selling opportunities. With starting capital of about $1 million, Mr. Adrangi has been able to build up fund to over $150 million dollars of assets under management.

The key to Mr. Adrangi’s success has been his dedication to research in finding short selling opportunities. When Mr. Adrangi finds a stock which he believes his overpriced, he shares that information on his website as well as social media. Recently, Mr. Adrangi has shared his research on Sage Therapeutics and Proteostasis Therapeutics.

Sahm Adrangi first rose to fame when he exposed a number of fraudulent Chinese companies almost a decade ago. Some of the Chinese companies exposed included China Marine Food Group, Lihua International and China-Biotics.

The excellent, leading and growing companies in the industry can’t afford to deliver inferior products. They are expected to be excellent. Their services have to be superb, high caliber and meet customer expectations. They also have to be consistent and sustainable. Clearly, not many companies are able to do this. Not many of them are led by hardworking CEOs that do their best to grow the brand. Fortunately, Aloha Construction is an exception. Aloha Construction deviates from the crowd and stands out because of its secret component: it is being led by a family. Family-owned companies tend to succeed because of stronger ties, and the fact that Aloha Construction has been here since 2008 is an indicator of why this fact is true.

It may also be said here that Aloha Construction would probably not get the success that it has without Dave Farbaky as its founder. He is the man responsible for growing the company both in Illinois and Greater Chicago Area. He’s also the man who has made Aloha as a household name in the field of construction. His leadership has also made sure that Aloha would attract the support of many industry leaders today.

One of the key industry leaders in the media that have shown their support for Aloha would have to be Dan Bernstein, the man behind the Boers and Bernstein Show and who is the Best Sports Talker in Chicago Magazine. It may even be safe to say that Bernstein is Chicago’s only three-category winner of the Best Radio Talk Show award in Chicago. And the fact that he now endorses Aloha means that his construction company is indeed doing an incredible job in attracting quality supporters.

Aloha Construction has also offered help to many social development programs through the help of its founder and people like Bernstein. They have supported the Camp One Step program that helps children get quality education. They also have partnered with Illinois State University’s Athletics Department to improve the wellbeing of students.

It should also be noted here that Aloha is a winner of the BBB Torch Award in 2017. This award is such a quality seal that stamps Aloha with the kind of reputation it needs to build stronger relations in the business.
