Tengram Capital Partners Acquires E-Commerce Lime Crime Makeup Brand

Russian native Doe Deere founded the Lime Crime cosmetics company in 2008 and quickly built a leading makeup brand on e-commerce. Today, “the little cosmetics label that could” has been acquired by Tengram Capital Partners and is looking to spread its wings and soar higher.

Stacy Panagakis has been named the new CEO of Lime Crime, and she is no stranger to the beauty industry. Panagakis recently served as the general manager of the Fresh company and has the reputation of creating leading brands. She is excited to be working with Lime Crime’s fantastical makeup label and introducing a greater variety of trendy cosmetics.

Deere, Lime Crime’s forever muse, has always believed makeup should be bold and expressive. Panagakis agrees:

Lime Crime is a millennial brand with a message that resonates with women everywhere,” she says.

Lime Crime fills a need in the makeup market because there are few companies that sell whimsical, bright cosmetics. Doe Deere launched the company to offer another makeup experience to customers, one that broke all the beauty rules.

Lime Crime doesn’t look at cosmetics like traditional makeup. The brand likes to add glitter, sparkle and bizarre color palettes to blend with fashion and hair trends. For instance, Lime Crime pushed the envelope, and women now wear grey cement-colored lipstick or rustic red eyeshadow. It’s modern makeup on the cutting edge and also vegan and cruelty-free.

Today, obsessed Lime Crime fanatics cannot wait for new products to drop. The American brand is gaining popularity around the globe, and London is the latest city to feature the contemporary makeup.


Tengram Capital Partners is a leading private equity firm that is thrilled to take Lime Crime to its next plateau. Panagakis says her mission is to smash traditional beauty boundaries, and allow Lime Crime to run free.


There are only a handful of individuals who make their mark in the business world. The chances that an entrepreneur will become successful in their professional lifetime is very low. One such Canadian-based entrepreneur has made his mark in the business world. The story of Louis Chenevert is highlighted in a recent article by Brian Harris in We will recap the article below and we will focus primarily on his time at UTC.

Louis Chenevert was born in Montréal, Québec in 1958. Louis attended college at the University of Montréal and majored in Production Management. At college, he attended the HEC Montréal Business School. Louis got his first big break in the business world at General Motors (GM) in Québec. After spending 14 years at GM, Louis was influenced to enter the aerospace industry under the advice of another GM colleague by the name of Karl Krapek and he later joined Pratt and Whitney Canada (PWC) in 1993. He later became president in 1999.

Louis counterpart, Karl Krapek, was CEO of United Technologies Corporation (UTC) from 1999 to 2002. UTC was the umbrella company for PWC. UTC later found much potential with Louis and that led to Louis being Director of UTC in 2006. UTC also specialized in other products such as: security systems, HVAC systems, and airplane engines. Louis led the efforts to promote the GTF engine that would impact the airline industry. Under Louis’ direction, the GTF engine market was put back in the right direction and made PWS relevant again. In 2008, Louis was named President of UTC. Louis made significant changes upon his tenure as President. He moved UTC’s manufacturing back home instead of overseas. One other key goal under Louis’ watch was obtaining a U.S. Navy contract to work on the F135 aircraft engine. With these moves, UTC’s stock soared and eventually UTC was sold to the Goodrich Corporation.

Louis retired from UTC in 2014 and continued his education where he was honored for his contributions to the aerospace industry. As you can see, Louis has definitely made his mark as a true entrepreneur!

Roberto Santiago: the Shopping Visionary

At the end of last year Manaira Shopping went through another expansion, this time in the part of the garage that won an entire building dedicated to the public visits the venture, adding another 900 vacancies.


The work started and delivered in 2017, was supervised by Roberto himself.


The capacity of the Domus house of shows that is in the Manaira Shopping of Roberto Santiago is of 4 thousand people seated or 10 thousand in foot. It has ground floor with space for tables and chairs or dance floor, lounge music, access to dressing rooms and so on.


Roberto Santiago is seen in charge of the reform of parking of one of its shopping malls.


The owner of Manaira Shopping, the Brazilian businessman, born in the capital João Pessoa, Roberto Santiago, was seen by the WSCOM Portal – a news portal in Paraíba – commanding a renovation in the parking lot of the mall. “We need to react,” he said, who also owns Mangabeira Shopping. The businessman also added – “since the crisis has beaten us, now we will reverse and start up, because nothing to do is much worse.”


The Paraibano said that he acts based on planning and economic projections. “We will offer more comfort to our customers,” said Roberto Santiago – who joked about the fact that 24 hours were not enough for so much demand for issues to solve. “It’s part of not having the time,” he said.


Roberto Santiago was born on July 16, 1958 and holds a degree in Business Administration from the University Center of João Pessoa. His entrepreneurial talents were what gave life to the economy of João Pessoa – through two major investments. The first one was Manaira Shopping, inaugurated in 1989. The development is one of the largest shopping centers in the entrepreneur’s hometown – it has already undergone five expansions since it was built and today has about 300 stores distributed over a Gross Lettable Area (GLA) of 75 thousand meters.


The Santiago enterprise also offers cuisine with varied styles – both for those who enjoy fast food and those who prefer something more sophisticated. Manaíra has a food court, hamburgers and restaurants, and Espaço Gourmet offers the most sophisticated chefs in the cuisine of Paraíba. In addition, the mall has a ballroom, gym, branch offices, and even a concert hall.


Mangabeira Shopping, in turn, was another investment by Roberto Santiago that moved the economy of Paraiba. Opened in November 2014, Mangabeira is one of the most modern architectures in Brazil. In benefit to the region, the enterprise generated about three thousand jobs, only at the time of construction of the building. The mall is also one of the great promoters of the development of the south zone of João Pessoa.

We Have To Look At Things Differently: The Ideas Of Shervin Pishevar

It takes a special kind of person to say that the economy is headed in the wrong direction when the stock market continues to climb to record highs. You are talking about a person who is not afraid to put his or her reputation on the line. That is exactly the kind of person that Shervin Pishevar really is though.

Shervin Pishevar has already put his reputation on the line when he made a series of early investments in AirBnb. It was not a conventional investment at the time. There was a lot of risk involved. Still, Shervin Pishevar saw this as a golden opportunity to make some money on his money and he took it. That paid off well for him.

These days Shervin Pishevar spends more time talking to the public on Twitter than he does worrying about uncovering the next big thing. He still spends a fair amount of time doing both to be honest. However, the tweets are what has grabbed the attention of people as of late.

Pishevar had been absent from Twitter for some time when he hopped back on with some ideas about the stock market. He called for a twenty percent reduction in prices across all of the major indices in the near future. He says that they need to come off at least that much to get anywhere close to being at fair value. Even at those prices there may be some more room to drop, but Pishevar would take those prices as a start.

Adding on to his thoughts on these subjects is the fact that Pishevar believes firmly that the price of Bitcoin is also too high. He would like to see a pullback in those prices because he feels that people have gotten too excited about the value of Bitcoin as well in recent years. He wants people to have excitement about investing to be sure, but he wants them to be excited about the right kinds of investments. Unfortunately, he does not see Bitcoin as something that falls into that category.

Not everyone agrees with everything that this man has to say. Still, he is a voice worth considering when the topic is investing or economics. He has done a fair bit of work in his personal life to prove that he has some knowledge on these topics.
