In the investment industry, there have been many changes over the past few decades. The use of technology has been one of the biggest changes. In many aspects of the investment industry, technology has changed the way the investment industry operates on a daily basis. Many things that once required a significant amount of time to do can now be done in a matter of seconds with the use of current technology innovations.

In addition, technology has impacted the way that investment companies assist clients and people looking for investment help. In times prior to the past few decades, investment companies would usually meet with people to discuss specific investment questions, problems, or concerns. However, with the use of technology, a large percentage of support and service issues can be addressed by going to investment company websites to gain access to the desired information.

With more access to investment related information on investment company websites and other investment related resources online, people are able to do a lot of investment related tasks themselves. This makes it easier on the people interested in investments. Also, it provides investment companies with more opportunities to provide investment information to people interested in investments.

The Capital Group is an investment company that has shown an ability to provide technology related investment assistance to its clients and people interested in investments through its website. The company has numerous support and services options available for people looking for investment assistance.

How Christopher Burch Is Changing Consumer Perception Using Disruptive Technology?

As almost every industry embraced technology, fashion industry also came up with new high-tech ideas. These ideas are both innovative and consumer-oriented. Perhaps, the initial ideas started with designers such as Anouk Wipprecht, a Dutch fashion designer, who invented products that included a drink-making dress and a self-painting attire. Later, designers started to engage customers by designing disruptive products that smartly integrated high-tech and fashion.

 

The bike protection neck wear from Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin is an example of such design. Instead of wearing a helmet that often restricts visibility, the neck wear offers increased protection by inflating an air bag on impact. The neck wear is also useful in hot outdoor conditions. Similarly, two other designers, Ashwin Rajan and Kevin Cannon, created Frontline Gloves, which are extremely useful during emergencies and rescue operations. These gloves are fluorescent and heat resistance, which is particularly useful in dense smoke. Using these gloves, fire fighters can easily give hand signals allowing their team and others to exit from the scene, quickly.

 

The use of kinetic energy to power consumer gadgets is also not new. Several fashion designers have designed clothes, which can power small appliances such as mp3, watch, and batteries. In fact, there is also a version of running shoes, which can produce enough energy from movement to easily charge a cell phone.

 

It is also true that fashion industry has come to the rescue of high-tech firms on several occasions. Recently, Google Glass faced challenges because it was difficult for the company to convince consumers to wear glasses due to the stigma attached with glasses. Accordingly, Diane Von Furstenberg, a famous fashion designer came to the rescue of Google Glass by promoting the glass on her fashion shows. As a result, Google was able to generate hype and awareness enabling successful introduction.

 

Such success is not possible without the support of entrepreneurs such as Christopher Burch. Chris Burch and his company, Burch Creative Capital, has helped numerous high-profile companies to launch innovative products. During his career, he has helped more than 50 top-notch product ideas.

 

Connecting innovation to impact, Chris Burch successfully allowed top names such as ED by Ellen DeGeneres, Cocoon9, Nihiwatu, Poppin, and TRADEMARK. Similarly, he also embraced ideas by Faena Hotel + Universe, Jawbone, and Voss Water. From hospitality, organic foods, and technology industries, Burch Creative Capital is instrumental in generating impact through lifestyle and consumer products.
