Last week, NIA’s President Gerard Adams was blessed to receive the Business Maverick Leadership Award from the New Leaders Council of New Jersey. After co-founding NIA in 2009 and Elite Daily in 2012, Gerard Adams in 2013 became the initial seed investor in MusikaFrere (as well as Chairman of the company). At the time, Aleks Musika and Davidson Petit-Frere were up and coming fashion designers who were both beginning to generate buzz on Instagram for their custom-tailored men’s suits.
Gerard was a mutual friend of them both and introduced them to each other, believing that they shared a similar style. Gerard quickly found out that they both also shared the same goal of one day owning their own fashion brand catering to celebrities in NYC. In October 2013, Gerard agreed to fund the creation of MusikaFrere and closed on a headquarters and showroom for them in NYC.
Since the launch of MusikaFrere in 2014, it has quickly become the #1 hottest brand in men’s suits. Countless A-List celebrities like Jay-Z have become huge fans of MusikaFrere.
Here is a picture of Gerard Adams sitting on top of Jay-Z’s desk at his NYC Roc Nation office:
Last week, CNBC aired a major live segment about the success of MusikaFrere.
NIA is also pleased to announce that it has begun producing a major full-length documentary about the current huge mania in “Initial Coin Offerings” aka ICOs. We will be releasing more details very soon.
Finally, we would like to announce that NIA is becoming extremely bullish on the autonomous vehicle space. Besides blockchain technology and cobalt, NIA believes that autonomous vehicle technology will soon become the #1 hottest investment space. In addition to discovering and suggesting the best ways to capitalize on the blockchain technology boom and soaring cobalt prices, NIA plans to soon announce its favorite ways to capitalize on the upcoming mania in autonomous vehicles.
