Rodrigo Terpins Grows One Of The Biggest Sustainable Forests In The Paraba Valley

Over the past several decades, the majority of Brazilian timber that has been bought and sold have been uncertified. This means that the majority of this timber hasn’t been sourced from sustainable or renewable sources. However, Brazilian rally car celebrity Rodrigo Terpins has been trying to change that over the past decade or so. While he’s best known for outperforming the competition on the circuit since 2009 Mr. Terpins has been going the same with Floresvale and the ethical timber industry.

Rodrigo Terpins is probably best known for some of his most recent driving successes. For example, he achieved some amazing results at the 22nd annual Sertões Rally. The Rally is one of the toughest and most arduous circuits in the entire rally racing scene in Brazil. The circuit is set on 2,600km of road in two states and across seven cities. To make matters even worse for Rodrigo Terpins, many people had doubts about his cars suspension alignment; they weren’t should that it would hold up to the tough conditions. Not only did Mr. Terpins finish the race, but he also did it with flying colors; he completed the first leg in less than two hours, which was enough to qualify him for a top ten finish.

By the time the circuit was finished, he had finished third in his category and eighth overall; quite impressive considering to competitive field of almost forty other drivers. But that doesn’t mean that he’s been completely dedicated to driving over the past ten years. With Floresvale he’s managed to create one of the largest sustainable tree farms in the entire country. The company currently manages over 5,000 hectares of forest across Queluz, Silveiras, Monteiro Lobato, São Luiz do Paraitinga and Taubaté; this amount is purported to grow on an almost daily basis.

Rodrigo Terpins has also said that almost half of the forest land they manage is dedicated to preserving the forest; in fact, 2,400 hectares are dedicated to permanent preservation, native woods, and legal reserve areas. Because of that, the company has been able to export an average of 7,000 cubic meters of wood every month.

“Marc Beer Earns Second Funding To Further Women’s Health Innovation “

The medical technology company, Renovia Incorporated, is developing innovative digital devices to help women overcome conditions associated with pelvic floor disorders. The company’s chief executive officer and co-founder, Marc Beer, announced in August 2018, that the company has closed a Series B round of funding for $32 million. Additionally, Beer disclosed that Renovia has acquired $10 million in venture debt. These funds will go toward developing new products to diagnose and treat pelvic floor disorders in women.

 

Renovia’s currently-marketed device, the Leva®, gained approval from the Federal Drug Administration in April 2018. The Leva® is an electronic device that works in conjunction with a mobile telephone app to monitor strength-training pelvic floor exercises. Renovia will use funds to develop a new generation of this device as well as develop and test four additional therapeutic and diagnostic devices. A major contributor to Renovia’s Series B round is the Longwood Fund, an investing firm that focuses on healthcare ventures. Perceptive Advisors, a New York-based company, led the round.

 

Marc Beer stated that Renovia is thrilled about the support from these leading healthcare investors. He notes the shared vision of all parties to better diagnose and treat pelvic floor disorders which affect an estimated 250 million women globally. Beer expects to combine Renovia’s innovative, proprietary sensor technologies with digital platforms to develop monitoring devices used to gain a better understanding of these women’s conditions. Ultimately, Beer hopes that the resulting gathered data and knowledge will lead to new treatment options and lower costs associated with treating these disorders.

 

In August 2016, Marc Beer, along with partners Ramon Iglesias, M.D. and Yolanda Lorié, obtained Renovia’s Series A round of funding. Beer has more than 25 years experience in the development and commercialization of pharmaceutical devices, diagnostics, and biotechnology. Much of his experience is in the fields of stem cell and genetic disorder technologies.

In seven years, Beer grew the company to employ more than 300 workers. He took the company public in 2005, and in 2007 PerkinElmer acquired ViaCell.
