ZIPZ WINE : THE BIGGEST DEAL IN SHARK TANK HISTORY
Product, Packaging and Engineered by SnS Design, Inc
December 5, 2014 (episode 613) - Friday 9/8c
Kevin O'Leary offers ZipZ Wine $2.5 million for the innovative single-serve wine, making it the biggest deal in Shark Tank history.
"I've never been so excited for a #SharkTank deal!" O'Leary, a wine connoisseur and vineyard owner, tweeted after the deal premiered on national television.
WHAT SHARKS SAY ABOUT OUR DESIGN
"Very clever." - Robert Herjavec
"In our opinion our packaging is going to become to the wine industry what the aluminum can became to the soda industry." - Andrew McMurray
"I think it is a brilliant design. I love it!!" - Lori Greiner
"This wine glass drives me crazy." - Kevin O'Leary
"SnS Design was integral in taking our Zipz wine concept from a new idea to an actual revolutionary product. She was involved in every step from initial face to face meetings to product design graphic design and renderings in both 2D and 3D onto manufacturing files. Nisha also had excellent prototype associates who worked very quickly and cost effectively with us. Finally, Nisha created a most fantastic animation for us to use as a selling tool for investors, buyers and end users. Our experience with SnS Design and Nisha was excellent. I would recommend her company to anyone looking for that "it factor" in creativity that is so needed in todays competitive marketplace."

NEW YORK – Winter’s chill has gripped the region, but Con Edison’s Green Team is urging managers of large commercial buildings to sign up for lucrative incentives from the company’s summer demand response programs.
The utility is inviting commercial customers that promise to reduce their electrical usage when temperatures soar and demand for electricity is high. The enrollment deadline is April 1 to start participating in May. The enrollment deadline is May 1 to start participating in June.
For every megawatt of reduction that a customer or aggregator of buildings provides, Con Edison will pay up to $500,000 over three years. That reward would be on top of the money the customer would save by lowering their electrical use.
“By participating in Con Edison’s demand response programs, managers of 800 buildings have made the smart choice to generate revenue while saving on their bills and helping to ensure that electric service is reliable in their communities,” said Rebecca Craft, director of Energy Efficiency and Demand Management programs at Con Edison. “It’s important for building managers who are interested to contact us soon so that we can set them up for the summer of 2015.”
Con Edison offers two demand response programs. In one, the company will notify the customer that buildings should conserve starting in two hours or less. In the other, the company will provide notification 21 hours in advance. In most cases, customers can participate in both programs simultaneously.
Half of the buildings in the program are office buildings. Retail buildings are next at 9 percent, followed by health-care facilities at 7 percent, and educational facilities at 6 percent. Industrial buildings, hotels, residential properties and houses of worship also participate.
A building must have an interval meter – which measures electricity usage every 15 minutes – to participate. The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority will provide a $1,500 rebate to building managers installing interval meters.
Con Edison also offers incentives of $800 per kilowatt up to 75 percent of the cost, for measures such as generators or software. To qualify, a building must enroll in the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) Installed Capacity Special Case Resources Program. Most buildings are eligible to participate simultaneously in the NYISO and Con Edison demand response programs.
For more information on our Demand Response programs, go here or call the Green Team at 1-877-870-6118.
Con Edison is a subsidiary of Consolidated Edison, Inc. [NYSE: ED], one of the nation’s largest investor-owned energy companies, with approximately $12 billion in annual revenues and $41 billion in assets. The utility provides electric, gas and steam service to more than 3 million customers in New York City and Westchester County, New York.
The Con Edison Green Team has an Energy Efficiency program for everyone. To find programs that are right for you, visit www.conEd.com/greenteam or call the Green Team

Yonkers, NY, (January 8, 2014) – Progressive Computing Inc. CEO, Robert Cioffi, was a panelist at the “When Disaster Strikes is Your Business Ready?” Power Breakfast hosted by The Business Council of Westchester recently, which focused on crisis management in a digital age. The seminar was a part of the Business Council's ongoing series to educate their members and the business community of Westchester and was sponsored by Tompkins Mahopac Bank.
The event, which was held at the Crown Plaza in White Plains, NY, invited guests to be a part of a discussion on how to anticipate potential crises and what business owners should be prepared to do if an unexpected crisis should occur. Some discussion topics included budgeting for the unexpected, managing recovery plans, and the importance of data security. The expert panel was moderated by John Ravitz of The Business Council of Westchester and consisted of Robert Cioffi of Progressive Computing, Spencer Barback of Citrin Cooperman, Stephen Bedosky of York International Agency LLC, Jerry McKinstry of Thompson & Bender and John Vernazza of Cervalis.
During the panel discussion, Cioffi stated, "While there are many factors involved in creating a Disaster Recovery Plan, the two most critical components are Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO)." According to Cioffi, RPO defines the frequency of data backups along with the length of time each backup is retained, and this needs to be high if the intention is to recover data minutes after disaster strikes. RTO is representative of how quickly systems can be up and running after a crisis arises.
"RPO and RTO are the main two cost drivers when selecting a disaster recovery solution," Cioffi said. "Think of them as the coverage options in an insurance policy. But keep in mind, your budget should be a function of your risk tolerance."
The Business Council of Westchester can be reached at (914) 694-3919 or visit their website at www.westchesterny.org/.

The Manhattan Chamber of Commerce Foundation, the educational 501c(3) affiliate of the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, has initiated an awareness raising program to educate small and mid-size businesses on the human trafficking issue. Human trafficking is considered the worst human rights violation that takes place in the world today.
Businesses can be linked to trafficking through the recruitment, transport, harboring, or receipt of persons for the purpose of exploitation. Businesses also can be implicated unknowingly in human trafficking if their premises, products or services are used for trafficking or linked to trafficking through the actions of their suppliers or business partners.
The upcoming event scheduled for February 12th, 2015 the panel and talking points would include:
David Arkless- Chairman Arklight Consulting, founding counselor Board Member gBCAT Global Business Coalition Against Trafficking :Corporates and the human trafficking landscape/ Importance of corporate engagement/Issues and concerns.
Rosalee Keech- Board Member and UN Observer for the League of Women Voters:Business Operations and Compliance Implications/Zero Tolerance Program Components/Next Steps.
Debra Brown Steinberg, Founder, VS.: Confronting Modern Slavery in America, and Partner (Retired) of Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP: - Evolving Legislative front and update.
John Temple -Attorney-in-Charge, Human Trafficking Program, New York County District Attorney's Office -Office Human Trafficking Program-http://manhattanda.org/human-trafficking.
Moderator: Patricia Cole, Manhattan Chamber Anti Trafficking Founder and Program Director, representative of the UN RSHM NGO, Committee Stop Trafficking in Persons Coaltion at the UN.
These presentations will provide attendees with an understanding amongst other things of; the scope of Trafficking, the implications to the global business community, advocacy in action by small business and other corporate concerns and the benefits of involvement.
This Manhattan Chamber Anti-trafficking education program is an exemplary opportunity for good business to expand and strengthen their internal standards and corporate practices. It enables business to respond to the ever growing global demand for pro-active social involvement and commitment and the ability to join the fight to end human rights abuses and “modern slavery”.
I recently met Raj Thakkar, a very successful entrepreneur. Nine years ago, while serving as a CFO for a Charter School, he saw many administrators who were very good with programs – but neglected the other side of the house – the finances.
He went on to create Charter School Business Management that helps charters schools in managing their books, develop budgets, handle personnel and payroll.
Two years ago, Raj was selected to participate in the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Program. Raj told me that the Program helped him take a hard look at his organizational structure. He has built an incredibly successful business and has served more than 100 organizations along the way.

As you may know, in 2012 NYC Responsible Banking ACT (Local Law 38) established the Community Investment Advisory Board (CIAB), which is required to conduct a community banking and financial service needs assessment every two years. In addition to extensive data analysis, the law requires the CIAB to hold a public hearing in each of the five NYC boroughs as part of the banking and financial service needs assessment process. The biennial needs assessment is intended to identify local bank and financial service requirements, particularly in underserved areas, and established benchmarks, best practices, and recommendations to meet those needs. The first biennial needs assessment will be used for CIAB annual report on how NYC Desginated Banks are meeting the banking and financial service needs of our communities. That report will be released later this year.

And one in five small- and medium-sized businesses have been targeted by cybercrime.
Microsoft launched the Digital Crimes Unit (DCU) to proactively work with law enforcement to combat cybercrime.
