Querida presidenta @IdiazAyuso, antes de “ir a por el #MWC” puede empezar preguntándose por qué es un éxito cada vez mayor desde que aterrizó en Barcelona el año 2006.
Le cuento:👇🏻…
Mientras en Cannes reunía a 35.000 visitantes, el primer MWC en #Barcelona del 2006 ya registró más de 50.000 asistentes atraídos por su nuevo emplazamiento en una ciudad mediterránea, abierta y con un recinto ferial de primer nivel. En 2019 fueron 109.000 y 2.400 expositores.
Cada año ha crecido el número de asistentes y expositores. Pero no solo ha crecido una feria, se ha formado todo un ecosistema a su alrededor impulsado por la colaboración publicoprivada entre @govern, @MWCapital, @bcn_ajuntament y miles de empresas.

When I turned 35: I gave a small speech that I now think it was almost resignatory speech (it there is a word like that) among a few friends. And it was centered on making impact and being able to create a decent garage for our kids!
Startups and business is generally tough and almost like some sort of a lottery (market fit, team, f$unds, economy etc). Yet it’s the Safest bet especially for us here in Africa.
In many Silicon Valley stories, you always hear of @BillGates beginning from a Garrage. And Jeff Bezoz and on and on stricking our of Garage. What’s seldom talked about is that Garage is a great startup seed fund, almost like @ycombinator by / @paulg @jesslivingston et al

This year some #startups shifted focus to cutting costs and optimization. An unfortunate result of this was downsizing of teams and layoffs. Some say this was also due to over hiring. Entrackr takes a look:
(Disclaimer: this is not an exhaustive list)
1/n The year began with furniture retailer Urban Ladder laying off around 90 employees in February in a bid to trim expenses
2/n This was followed by over 300 people losing their jobs at user cars platform Cars24 in May. The firm laid off employees across multiple teams

"What pain / worry / fear / concern is your #startup solving or removing"?

This is a great coaching question and how well #founders answer it is a strong indication of whether they are likely to be successful with their current model.

So why is this such a hard question?
For some reason - we seem to be programmed that for our ideas to be accepted, they must offer some 'better' or a more 'positive' future.

Yet, we are designed to be twice as likely to want to avoid a loss as to seek a gain - as shown by loss aversion...…
Partly caused by coming out of corporate or institutional work, we are conditioned to seek small low risk incremental gains.

This won't work for startups that seek to scale, because with limited resource, no distribution & little money, our new business needs instant impact.

A thread about how #startups and #founder approaches to the startup phase profoundly impact their ultimate success and whether #coaches or #mentors help or hinder👇👇👇
Like ageing philosophers, new #founders often seek coaches and mentors because they want certainty.

Yet uncertainty is often the best friend of a #startup and tapping successful yet 'old ways' of (say) marketing, holds you back from discovering your own success metrics...
In seeking certainty, #entrepreneurs are looking for tried & trusted formulas so therefore they don't build the muscle to test & experiment their way to success.

As a coach I sometimes hear this as 'can't you just tell me!'

Which translates as; 'I just want the silver bullet'

Wrapping up a week long stay in the Bay Area. Thanks to all the founders, VCs and others in the #fintech community that took time out to meet.

Here are my key learnings (including one massive shock):
It's become clear that there are two key reasons why there is such a density of successful #startups here:

First up: A bias to optimism
Everyone seems optimistic. VCs in the Bay talk about the size of the opportunity and what needs to go right for something to work out, vs European VCs that focus on metrics and risk.

Something I don't see enough #SaaS #startups doing during the early days of trying and failing to get their first few customers?

Systematically recording and categorizing their objections as follows...
1. Could I overcome this objection by speaking to someone else at the company?

Even if you've got the right product and you're speaking to the right type of company — speaking to the wrong person can kibosh the whole thing...
2. Could I overcome this objection by speaking to a different type of company? (size, industry, need, geography, etc.)

Even if you have the perfect product and the right role is on the line, you're going to fail if it's not right for a company like theirs...

I read a great article on why the younger generation do not buy cars & apartments anymore & found it #TooGoodNotToShare



Nowadays,the traditional measure of success-owning an apartment & or a car-is getting out of date
An increasing number of young people around the world don’t want to buy them.

#Research shows that the so-called #MillennialGeneration, who are now 30-35 years old, rarely buy houses and even more rarely — cars. In fact, they don’t buy super expensive things at all.
In the USA, people under the age of 35 are called ’the generation of renters.’

Why does this happen?

Some sociologists say the current generation of young people differs from their parents’ generation. They have other values.

Johann Choux, Head of our Division responsible for equity investments in #startups and venture capital funds, is speaking at #AfroBytes2019. A great opportunity to explain how we work and to list some of the main criteria for our investments: impact and sustainability #AfroBytes
Today we have a portfolio of 12 investments and we are committed to investing in around 3/4 funds and 3/4 startups per year. But our support goes beyong VC, we also support local banks, which can lend to startups thanks to the guarantees we provide, and the ecosystem with @AFD_en
We want to invest more in North Africa and francophone Africa in the future, because as a #development finance institution, it is our mission to catalyse investments, and those 2 areas are very underpenetrated in terms of start-up investments. #Afrobytes

Today's article in @TheKenWeb contemplates "what ails" Indian #ECG Companies and concludes "Plenty as it turns out, starting with #healthcare providers themselves."…

I have heard these sort of comments a lot in various flavours from different #HealthIT
What usually happens is a group of highly skilled, honest, hardworking Engineers or Management Graduates #Startups develop a product or service, test it and find it successfull but when they want to market is doctors don't buy
They start blaming doctors, directly or indirectly saying that this is a magic solution which will revolutionalise health and save 20 crores people per year, but this dull headed docs are not able to see the potential and / or afraid of technology

Thread. Please read if you have an #infant at home.

So this is a well-kept and potentially deadly secret about an industry that is growing exponentially and has spawned sexy, venture-funded #startups. The industry is #sleep. And the product is the #mattress. #parenting 1/n
Recently, we went #mattress shopping. After many trials (choosing a mattress is crazy stressful!) zeroed in on and placed an order at a prominent brand's store. It was a beautiful #memoryfoam mattress. I was drooling thinking of all the glorious #sleep I'd soon be getting. 2/n
I have had horrible body ache for years now thanks to our old #mattress that was handmade in Mumbai. I was so excited about buying this amazing new mattress that I did what anyone in my place would: obsessively Google memory-foam mattresses. 3/n
