After the last 6 weeks building, I'm happy to finally launch
This is a tool to record and find derelict properties in towns, villages, and cities. The aim is to uncover these opportunities, and initiate their development into living spaces. 🧵...
Doghouse came about after I saw local activists @judesherry & @frank_oconnor posting derelict and vacant properties in their local community. I thought it would be helpful to make a place to aggregate and present these for all to see and uncover #DerelictIreland
The name comes from the phrase "in the doghouse" i.e. to be in a state of disgrace or disfavour. A lot like the housing situation for #GenerationRent both in Ireland & worldwide. The question asked by activists was simple - why are we wasting so many resources?

1/ "The latest generation of technology digs through the vast amounts of data collected on their daily activities to find patterns and aberrations, promising to predict crimes or protests before they happen."

You would have read that Flipkart, InMobi, and many more #startups are incorporated in #Singapore 🇸🇬?

Ever thought why founders incorporate their companies and not in #India?

In this #thread🧵, we will share few benfits of setting up a companies in Singapore.

Let's Begin... Image
Every #business or #startup needs money to grow and one way for a business strive to do this is by saving money on taxes.

Likewise, Indian businesses have been choosing Singapore as a business destination.

Let's see what makes Singapore a promising business destination!

India and Singapore have been important trade alliances for a long time.

Both the nations have signed "The Double Taxation Avoidance Aggrement (DTA)", which aims to avoid double taxation of any income that may flow between the two nations. Image

Sometimes the simplest things can have the biggest impact!

When it comes to people and #culture we tend to over engineer everything.

Sometimes it just needs to be simple and fun and creative!

So, I thought I'd share this simple hack from @OMERSVentures recent team offsite.
Last month, our team had an offsite - the first in over 3 yrs, and the first for all three of our regions (CAN, US, UK) to meet each other as a global team. It was a great week of connecting, collaborating!

#team #culture #connection Image
As our people & culture champion & w/ the dream team of @shawnchance & @MindOverMandi we collaborated on a session to help our team get to know each other in the face of continuing Covid-related work environments & the challenge of working in 3 countries, but operating as 1 team Image

How does a software engineering team determine the value of a feature? My answer in thread #startup #product #softwareengineering
The value of a feature can be determined by three variables:

Effort required (the lower, the better)
Alignment with company’s goals (the more aligned, the better)
Shelf life (the longer, the better)
Let’s compare two examples below:

A - A landing page that is going to take 5 weeks to build but will only be available for a week. The reason for the page is to announce a new product offering, as per company’s goals

¿Quieres emprender una #startup y necesitar validar tu idea rápidamente tu idea de negocio?

Aquí te dejo 4 formas para que valides que pueden ayudarte

1️⃣ Identificar señales

No hace falta que valides con un MVP.

Puedes salir al mercado con una landing page y hacer A/B testing con tu propuesta de valor para ver la demanda del mercado.

Importante: tener una propuesta de valor muy clara y concisa para los mensajes.
2️⃣ Beta 0.1

Este enfoque requiere el lanzamiento de un producto Beta, que generalmente tiene errores y no es el mejor en términos de experiencia de usuario (tampoco buscamos que lo sea, no es el objetivo ahora).

Prioriza muy bien qué funcionalidades deben de entrar en el 0.1

Wie kommt man so als #Wisskomm Angesteller in der Industrie unter?
Für alle, die nicht #Hanna sein wollen, aber auch die Wissenschaft lieben.

Ein kleiner 🧵:
Zuerst, meine Position.

Ich habe momentan eine Position als 'Scientific Marketing Specialist', und wie ihr schon erkennen könnt, hat #wisskomm in der Industrie oft mit Marketing zu tun.

Ich weiß nicht wie es euch geht, aber ich hasste immer Marketing wie die Pest.
Zum einen, da man natürlich verkaufen will und viele Marketing Tricks schlichtweg manipulativ, unehrlich oder so Klischee beladen sind, dass es einem das Herz zerreißt.

Zum anderen, da der 'Inhalt' so hohl ist und stinklangweilig. Immer ist alles 'super', man habe 'das Beste'

Markets has gone from one extreme ( Assuming fed won’t pull the trigger) in Jan 2022 to another extreme ( assuming fed would be unstoppable ) within a time span of 5 months . It’s pessimism all around with various articles / views being floating around for bad years ahead (1/n)
It is important to remember that market cycles have shortened . 2020 bear market was for 2 month and 2020-22 bull market was for 2 years ( 2/n)
Market participants tends to extrapolate the recent past and same is happening now . We saw winter coming in Jan 2022 and believe that this time too it will be short bear market with bottoming out process to be completed by Oct 2022 (3/n)

As much as I love everyone FINALLY embracing remote work from anywhere, been in this game for a while now…

In 2016, I set out to build a globally competitive AI #startup from Sault Ste Marie, Canada.

Here’s how that went:
I had a vision.
I had a dream.

I wanted to revitalize a steeltown with tech.

I wanted to prove that you could build best-in-class tech from ANYWHERE in the world. In 2016.

I was proven wrong.
I was literally laughed at by Toronto investors.

Most Waterloo investors didn’t believe my dreams could be possible up “North”.

I ultimately determined that local Soo investors would have been more likely to fund a cupcake shop than deep tech AI; despite endless attempts.

For the last 3 weeks, I didn't have any days off and usually got back home around midnight. The reason – a new #startup. It's tough, but it's fulfilling.

What is it like starting a fundraise when the market crashes and what mistakes I've made – read in a thread:
Being YC-alum with industry insights and a team behind me, I hugely underestimated how difficult it will be. It seems that everyone around raises money easily, others may tell you how easy it will be, but, in reality, it's never easy, man.
I had too much confidence in my connections and their power. What each friend can make, 3 intros? Should be enough to close a small round! In reality, it's 0.2, and more ghosting than intros.

(Appreciate all those who really tried to help 🙌 I value it more than ever)

9 Things that help startups to improve their odds while facing Angel Investors. A 🧵 thread

#Angel #Investors
1) Explain your IDEA clearly
The inability to describe the business idea early is the biggest mistake startups make while meeting an angel investor. So grab them by the hook early if you want to seal a deal.
2) Highlight the problem & offer solutions
The core idea in your business plan about solving problems is something that angels are really interested in.

#Zerodha CEO @Nithin0dha does not believe that there's an opportunity to build many businesses valued at $100 million in India.

Read his full interview with Moneycontrol's @PriyankaIyer to find out why 👇…

@zerodhaonline #Startup #Funding #Fintech
@Nithin0dha @PriyankaIyer @zerodhaonline @Nithin0dha says that "The problem with raising money at high valuations is that once you've set the wrong expectations to your investors, then you have to do whatever to meet those expectations."

@Nithin0dha added, "There cannot be 1,000 companies with a $100 million valuation because that would mean them having at least $10 million revenue."

Rejection hurts. There's no denying it.

But just because your business pitch was rejected by a venture capitalist (VC) doesn't mean that your startup is doomed.

In fact, getting rejected can be a good thing. It can help you learn, grow, and become a stronger entrepreneur.

Here are three things to do when your business pitch is rejected by a VC:

1. Don't take it personally

It's easy to take rejection personally, but it's important to remember that it's not about you as a person. It's about your business pitch.
Maybe the VC didn't like your idea, or maybe they didn't think your startup was ready for investment.

Also remember,  VCs are bombarded with pitches every day. They can't invest in all of them, so it's not surprising that most pitches are rejected.
