Personality: Judith Dommermuth
With more people working from home than ever, sweatpants have officially been integrated into “office” attire. In line with this trend, Judith Dommermuth believes that loungewear can, and should, be equally elegant as the rest of your wardrobe. In 2013, Dommermuth founded her own leisurewear company, Juvia, catering to newer, male luxury buyers more than most brands.
“What makes us totally unique is that we focus solely on loungewear and leisurewear.”-Judith Dommermuth, Founder, Juvia
Juvia’s collections consist of cashmere-lined, luxuriously soft sweatshirts, T-shirts of the purest cotton and, of course, sweatpants—available in six different fits of both patterned and plain-colored fabrics. Each season, the brand offers customers 380 items, all made in Portugal and designed to be paired with other pieces from current and past collections.
Prior to the pandemic, Dommermuth’s approach to fashion was considered revolutionary. Now, the founder’s design philosophy of eight years has become the new way of dressing, as sweatpant sales surged by 80% in the first three months of the pandemic with no slow-down in sight.
The casual-wear market is predicted to surpass $10 billion USD in global sales by 2026, and Juvia intends to capitalize on the success. Click here to read more about how Dommermuth plans to deliver high-quality leisurewear and joy to her customers, employees and self.
Safety. Flexibility. Experience. As the world’s largest private jet operator, NetJets keeps all three of these factors at top of mind. Originally established 58 years ago by American businessman Richard Santulli and acquired by Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. in 1998, the brand offers fractional aircraft ownership, private jet leases and private jet card programs. Members can become part-owners of various aircraft by buying shares in a jet or acquiring credits for several flights.
“Flying with us is extraordinarily enjoyable and convenient and gives you access to exclusive events.“-Carsten Michaelis, Executive Director, NetJets Europe
The pandemic has driven demand for private jet travel to unforeseen levels; NetJets alone has seen a record increase of 350%. To meet this wave of interest, NetJets is expanding its existing fleet to include 125 new jets and 300 new pilots this year. To safeguard this dynamic growth, the company is also investing heavily in its own resources with a yearly allocation of $80 million USD for crew training alone.

Disrupted supply chains and growing alarm over climate change have opened the door for innovative alternate food solutions that were subject to derision less than ten years ago. Today, investors around the world are backing vertical farming, a new high-tech solution that many say is the future of global food production.
The clever idea behind vertical farming: grow vegetables on roofs and in the places where food is already sold.
“Our approach brings farms into the city and offers fresh, healthy produce with short supply chains, contributing to carbon neutrality and biodiversity. All of a sudden, this makes sense to everyone.”-Sophie Hardy, Director, Nature Urbaine
According to a recent U.S. study, the vertical farming market is poised to increase its global revenue from $4.3 billion USD in 2021 to $20 billion USD in 2028. Indoor farms are popping up everywhere and have the potential to prevent future food insecurity in the face of increasingly frequent disastrous weather and the growing human population, estimated to rise as high as 9.7 billion by 2050.
