In this era of digital advertising, you’ll find it quite rare to not find email advertisements in your inbox. Email advertisements from online retail stores are the typical finds. But there are times when you want to get rid of these deals and go straight to your job emails. This is the very reason why Jojo Hedaya created the email management app called Unroll.me.
“He wasn’t answering my emails,” Jojo Hedaya explained when asked why he decided Unroll.Me. Hedaya stated that his business partner Josh Rosenwald, who is also a co-founder of the email management app, was not replying to his emails. Rosenwald explained that he cannot find the emails because of the email advertisements that crowded his inbox. He further explained that the product was born out of personal frustration. Unroll.Me is a platform that scans email inboxes searches for emails that contain advertisements. It filters adverts and “hides” them from the user. The user will be the one to decide when he’ll read the filtered emails for deals that he might want to use.
Jojo Hedaya is one of the co-founders of Unroll.Me. He used to study at the City University of New York – Brooklyn College where he is the Vice President of the Student Government. He met Josh Rosenwald during his stay on Israel to study. They became friends after their rabbi noticed that they are the only students with international BlackBerrys at the time. Both of them grew up in New York.
When it comes to company culture, Hedaya believes in nine things. During his interview with Mashable, he stated that the number one thing a company needs to do is to always be hiring. He also emphasized that a company must also think about the career path of each employee and avoid burning out talents by giving a lot of work too soon. Here’s the complete list of the nine important things in a company according to Jojo Hedaya.
- Always Be Hiring
- Encourage Entrepreneurial Thinking
- Remember That Your People Are Your Business
- Lead by Example
- Character Counts
- Don’t Underestimate Freelancers
- Listen to your gut
- Give Employees Ownership and Flexibility
- Work to Maintain and Build Company Culture
Jojo Hedaya also believes that you must do what you really love. He also stated that you must start something that you want to start. But before that, you must also figure out a plan before you start to be able to reach your goals.

GreenSky Credit originated at much the same time as many of the other tech start ups in Silicon Valley. The company is located in Atlanta, Georgia, and it operates online to help provide consumers with online loan access. David Zalik is the current Chief Executive Officer of the firm.
David Zalik is one of the co-founders of GreenSky Credit. The company has been in existence since 2006. He is a savvy entrepreneur, and this technology financial startup company rapidly became very popular and very successful. They have arranged loans to homeowners for home improvements and other purposes. By 2012, the company reportedly arranged approximately $5 billion in loans for its customers. GreenSky Credit works with numerous federally insured financial lending institutions that provide the funding.
Unlike many other tech startups that offer their employees free lunches and a host of other extra benefits, David does not run his company in the same way. He thinks differently in many ways, and that way of thinking has proven to be a huge financial step for the company. While some other CEO’s opt to maintain their companies as privately owned entities for different reasons, David Zalik thought differently. He saw the potential of taking the company public, and the company did go public in May of 2018. It has been reported by Forbes that David is a billionaire, with paper assets of approximately $2.5 billion.
David has an interesting background and early life before his success story at GreenSky Credit. He grew up in the United States as a toddler and onward. His family moved from Israel to Alabama when he was 4 years old. From his young days, he was always fascinated with the computer, and he displayed a great aptitude for learning. He achieved an exceptionally high testing score at age 12. He was then invited by Auburn University to enroll in some courses there. His father worked at the University. He never attended high school, and instead he went on to begin his studies full time at the University at the age of 14.
Stream Energy, a major supplier of energy services based in Dallas Texas and a long-time participant in corporate philanthropy, was featured on Patch earlier this year for their company’s philanthropic efforts through the founding of Stream Cares, a dedicated corporate charity foundation that put a formal face on Stream Energy’s long history of ongoing philanthropic activities.
Featured in the Patch’s article are many examples of Stream Cares’ more recent philanthropic efforts. After Hurricane Harvey, Stream Cares partnered with Hope Supply Co. to help alleviate the suffering of those who lost their homes. While many corporations simply throw money at a problem and walk away, Stream Energy decided to utilize their charity foundation to get far more involved and provide a positive experience for those affected, and particularly for the children affected by the storm. In order to do so, Stream Cares covered the cost for more than 1,000 children to attend the annual event Splash for Hope.
In another tragedy, when multiple tornadoes struck Northern Texas before Christmas in 2016, Stream Energy associates actively teamed up with the Salvation Army to raise funds for those in need of assistance. The company then matched the funds that had been raised to double the amount gathered from donations.
However, Stream Energy does not only assist during natural disasters and tragedies. Ongoing efforts to support our military and veterans is also a priority to them. One example of those efforts is Operation Once in a Lifetime, where Stream Cares stepped in to provide financial and moral support for veterans and donated transportation for the less fortunate veterans to be able to attend a special lunch at a popular Texas restaurant. Stream Cares then co-hosted the American Girl Doll Experience for 10 daughters of military members and stream associates got personally involved by supporting the girls through the event.
While Texas is among the least generous states, Stream Energy, through their Stream Cares foundation, is doing their best to make up for the lack of philanthropic and altruistic efforts around the state, and they regularly make it a core principal of their daily operations.
