Kobe the Giant

The Crash

What on earth could cause a plane to crash in such an affluent part of California? There are many devices that pick up signals of all types of air craft in the sky and on ground, one has to wonder what is the root of such a fatal crash that will change so many peoples lives forever? Kobe Bryant was a first on many levels and broke records even while he was being scouted to play for the National Basketball Association. None had heard of a player being drafted out of high school. He set new standards that gave way to the outstanding players we have today. Kobe will always be known for his performance as a basketball player. For the more recent times as a business person, Kobe was well on his way to the billionaire arena.

The Businessman

As per Forbes Nov 18, 2018 by S. Ogus:

“A few months after retiring, Bryant announced in 2016 that he was partnering with former Web.com president Jeff Stibel and starting a $100 million investment fund that was set to focus on media, technology, and data related companies. The fund immediately had a portfolio of 13 companies through the 2014-formed Kobe Inc. and included companies such as The Players’ Tribune, LegalZoom, and a video game design company called Scopely. In case readers were interested in joining, the fund is not seeking outside investment.”

Kobe’s Business Moves

His Other Projects

‘The company is described as using “conversation data” that is powered by artificial intelligence that is designed to help sales teams manage and cultivate relationships with clients. The company has said it has been profitable for two years and plans to use the new influx of funds to push them into a new growth stage and continue to build out their business. Bryant and Stibel, who also led the investment round for ringDNA back in 2014 had this to say regarding their latest investment together:

“When we led the initial investment for ringDNA in 2014, we did so because of a great entrepreneur, strong team and a large and untapped market opportunity,” Bryant and Stibel said in a statement. “With this latest growth equity round from Goldman Sachs, ringDNA has added another world-class partner aligned with its goal of helping enterprise sales organizations analyze and learn from their game film to become smarter and more effective.”‘ also from Forbes Nov. 2018

His Drive

Kobe possessed a very different kind of drive, competitive absolutely, but was exemplar of the mind set it takes to win in life period. The untimely death of our brother and his daughter has sent shock waves through this planet. The HuriKane Report sends much love and light to the family of the deceased. Spirits formerly known as Kobe Bryant, and to the little light by your side, may you both rest in peace, power and may the Ancestors and Orisha’s celebrate your return to God as you take your place among them. Ashe.

Boukman’s Prayer

The god who created the earth; who created the sun that gives us light. The god who holds up the ocean; who makes the thunder roar. Our God who has ears to hear. You who are hidden in the clouds; who watch us from where you are. You see all that the white has made us suffer. The white man’s god asks him to commit crimes. But the god within us wants to do good. Our god, who is so good, so just, He orders us to revenge our wrongs. It’s He who will direct our arms and bring us the victory. It’s He who will assist us. We all should throw away the image of the white men’s god who is so pitiless. Listen to the voice for liberty that speaks in all our hearts.
