Sam Tabar is a well-known capital strategist and attorney in New York City. He started his career with Skadden, Arps, Slater, Meagher and Flom LLP, as an associate after graduating from Columbia Law School. Tabar advised his clients on how to set up and structure hedge funds. He also worked with clients on agreements for investment management, compliance and regulatory issues, side letters, individual placement memoranda and employment issues.

In 2004, Tabar became the Managing Director and Co-Head of Business Development at Sparx Group Co/PMA, as an investment advisor. Tabar’s next step was joining Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Sam was the Director and Head of Capital Strategy for the Asia-Pacific Region. In 2013, Tabar returned to working with clients as a Senior Associate on their hedge funds, regulatory and compliance and fund formation and structure issues with Schulte Roth and Zabel LLP. Tabar left this position in August of 2014.

As a prominent attorney and strategist, in New York City, Tabar added Thinx to his investment portfolio. Thinx is a startup company that helps women in Africa and America. Thinx is involved in women’s designer underwear to help women with their incontinence and menstruation cycle. The stylish underwear provides sanitary pads that are cloth and can be reused. Purchasing one pair of these stylish undergarments will give women in Africa, reusable cloth sanitary pads from AFRipads. It offers women in Africa the choice of five styles. These undergarments give African women the chance to go to work or school instead of staying home during their cycle or incontinence problems. African women had no other choice, but to stay home during their cycle or due to incontinence, before Thinx specialized in supporting women’s issues in Africa.

Crunchbase shows that Tabar supports the idea of the community giving back on global issues through their purchases of the fashionable underwear for women. With every purchase, Uganda women receive seven washable and reusable cloth pads from AFRipads. Without this resource of reusable pads, women had no other choice but to stay home. Women can now expand their education and help their families financially.

Tabar understands the world of investments and just how special Thinx and their business model and financial resources are to women in Africa. Thinx was started by two women, through a campaign known as Kickstarter. As one of the investors, Sam Tabar believes that with their fashionable underwear products, Antonia and Miki are making a significant difference in the lives of women.
