He has had success as both a lawyer and a business strategist. He left the firm in 2014 in order to concentrate on investments.
His vast experience in matters of investment has seen Mr. Tabar invest in THINX. THINX Company makes fashionable undergarments for women. The company largely focuses on giving back to the society and has special spotlight on global issues that encourage members of the community to participate in different ways. The founders of THINX, Miki and Antonia, have made a huge difference to poor women in Africa, Asia and other parts of the world particularly those that cannot afford sanitary towels.
Every purchase of fashionable underwear bought ensures that a Ugandan woman has seven reusable cloth pads that can tide her over during her menses. Miki and Antonia have teamed up with AFRIpad, a nongovernmental organization that makes and distributes washable cloth pads. Through this initiative, women have been able to carry on with their everyday activities even when they have their menses. Before, such women would be forced to stay at home because of lack of adequate resources to purchase sanitary towels.
Initially, and he even voiced this on Twitter, Sam was not interested in investing at the particular time but after he looked at the business model, his entrepreneurship side was interested in the different but exciting venture. In the recent times, he has helped the company acquire financing through crowd funding campaigns and a kick stater campaign. The company offers its products via wholesale distribution and an online platform. In addition, the clients that have purchased THINX products can sign a manifesto, which shows that they have participated in assisting the women who need such help.
