Elizabeth Holmes: “I am devastated by my failings. I have felt deep pain for what people went through, because I failed them.  I regret my failings with every cell of my body.”

DeVos Family Office RDV Corp, the co-founder of American multi-level marketing company Amway and owner of NBA Basketball Team Orlando Magic with more than $5 billion fortune, had invested $100 million into Stanford University drop-out Elizabeth Holmes medical-startup and blood-testing device Theranos Inc in 2014, according to a representative of DeVos Family Office in a legal proceeding.  In 2014, Lisa Peterson who manages private equity investments at DeVos Family Office RDV Corp, testified that Elizabeth Holmes was hand-picking 5 to 6 private families to invest in her firm, and had on hindsight, misrepresented revenue and blood-testing technology was not invented by Theranos, but by 3rd-party systems.  More than $900 million were invested into Theranos, including media tycoon Rupert Murdoch ($125 million) and the Walton Family (Walmart).  Betsy DeVos is the former United States Secretary of Education from 2017 to 2021 under Donald Trump Administration.  Amway was co-founded by Richard DeVos (1926 – 2018) and Jay Van Andel in 1959, which became one of the most successful multi-level marketing selling health, beauty and home care products.
