1/ Most people have been watching in shock as the story of dreaded #AngelTax reared it's disgusting head. Freezing the accounts of startup @Travelkhana and @babygogo_in has resulted in an uproar across India's startup community, calling for #ShutdownIndia
2/ Though the Central Board of Direct Taxation (CBDT) has released a circular claiming that the officer in charge of this particular case did everything by the book. Founder of @Travelkhana, @pushpinder has disputed the story, claiming the officer rushed the case through.
3/ Regardless whether the case was rushed through or not, is almost irrelevant because in any logical, normal universe, the case shouldn't exist at all. Period!

@firstround publishes a yearly #startups survey and the results are in - hugely useful data for all founders of all genders. But we have some thoughts when you look a little closer... stateofstartups.firstround.com/2018/
1. Only 17% of respondents were women, and results are not broken up by gender. So it calls into question finding #1, that most founders believe AGE is the #1 investor bias in tech.
1a. Obviously, if 83% of respondents are men, and never personally experience gender bias, this finding is massively biased itself.

@africatechie It is only sad because we are lazy and can't see it as a huge opportunity. It is why I can never forgive the current president of Nigeria for his appointments in tech, science & tech and education. This is a unique time in history. We can't stop the exodus - we can milk it!
@africatechie The world is desperate for tech talent - we have a pool of driven young people. We should educate them en-masse. Aim to train much more than the foreign market can absorb and create a bridge between those leaving and local market. The effect in less than 5 years will be HUGE.
@africatechie ...and NO - i am not talking about more @Andela (s). We need a concerted effort that will leverage existing academic infrastructure. Revamp CS curriculum with a strong creative spin. Set up a separate board to invest in CS education (for start) with a mandate to demonstrate ROI.

1. Voy a explicar el proceloso mundo de los “convertible notes”, ese instrumento, copiado de la práctica USA, tan utilizado por muchas #startups, como financiación puente a la espera de la serie A 👇(hilo)
2. Para empezar, en España, nada de “notes”. Las S.L. no pueden titulizar deuda convertible (cosas del legislador). Llamémosles préstamos
3. Aún así, vamos a usar el término “nota convertible”, porque se ha popularizado en el mundillo

0/ Another doozy of a thread for you!

The past ~24hrs saw a great many #blockchain projects share development updates and partnership news. Amid this, the #crypto space was ripe with discussion on several topics.

On what, exactly? Well that's for you to find out 😉
1/ 🇺🇸 @AugurProject [ $REP ] - yeah, that #Ethereum-powered decentralized prediction market everyone wrote off post-#mainnet as quickly as @Novogratz revises a #bitcoin price forecast (😘) - well the #USmidterms have seemingly awoken punters from far and wide. Those numbers!
2/ 🔎 @adam3us's leading #bitcoin and #blockchain technology firm @Blockstream announced its new block explorer, blockstream.info.

Now, users can search and view specific data published in real-time to the Bitcoin #blockchain, Bitcoin #testnet and Liquid #sidechain. Neat!

1/ I recently spoke to @AccelepriseSF’s 9th cohort. Topic turned to how to approach #angelinvestors for #seedrounds. I shared some of these thoughts with @TomTaulli on @Forbes, forbes.com/sites/tomtaull…
but let me expand...
2/ According to @ACAAngelCapital, every year +200k angels invest +25 billion in +71k startup deals! This has changed 3 big things: 1. how formal VC firms operate 2. Silicon Valley’s stranglehold on talent 3. How founders raise funds. Let me explain.
3/ Let’s start with VCs. Initially wary of angels as competitors, they realized that letting angels take the initial bets actually helps reduce risk, letting them focus their own bets. Win.

1/ Happy Monday Twitter. ⚠️ #tweetstorm 🌪️ #alert ⚠️

My #LegalGeek #FOMO peaked when I missed @nwaisb talk on #AI #hype which is still ALL OVER MY TWITTER FEED. Plus now I have #ACCAM18 #FOMO so here's a bunch of 🤔re #AI, #MachineLearning, #EmergingTech #hype, and #marketing.
2/ As @ZachAbramowitz thinks there's no fun in agreeing: no, I don't think @nwaisb / @KiraSystems & others have benefited (on net) from the AI hype. I'd say hype hurts us all, bc it trades short term gainz to a few players for long-term pain shared by all.
3/ New entrants can feel the need to build #buzz for brand awareness + brand lift. I wouldn't exactly disagree this may help new offerings generate leads + fill their pipeline. Piggybacking on an existing trend with #hype is a shortcut to buzz, BUT with many pitfalls ⚠️

Let's start our #GEMChats this week. The topic of this week is #student #entrepreneurship!

We'll discuss these three factors in the poll options below as well as replies to the poll 🧐🧐🧐 Let's take this forward!
#Students? And #entrepreneurship? Is that even a good combination?

Especially when you read that the famous student entrepreneurs like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg are all dropouts!!!

Can students not only run a #business while studying but also be #successful at it?
Taking a different perspective at this is that while these billionaires are college dropouts, the #idea for the #business all came about when they were in #college! As a young #student, your ideas have a chance at being fresh and can be developed through stringent planning!

Does AUSA Moira Kim Penza, prosecutor in the fed. #NXIVM #RICO criminal racketeering case, realize that her indictments of #NXIVM leader, Keith Raniere aka "Vanguard," last March, may have affected the outcome of the 2018 Mexican Presidential Election? #ArizonaMafia #Democrats
Moira Kim Penza is 1 of the main prosecutors in the federal #NXIVM #RICO criminal case. A #RICO case is very serious; it is 1 of the most complex types of prosecutions the U.S. Government can initiate. Moira's boss is Richard P. Donoghue, U.S. Atty for the Eastern District of NY.
Penza is a smart lawyer. According to publicly available information, she studied at Cornell Law School, a private Ivy League University located in Ithaca, New York. Cornell was ranked the #13 law school in America, out of 203 law schools, by U.S. News & World Report, in 2018.

Hello, everyone and welcome back to our weekly #GEMChats! This week, we'll discuss the results of the poll on whether #celebrities make successful #entrepreneurs!

Let's begin, shall we?

#startup #womenentrepreneur #business #showbiz
So recently @KylieJenner sparked a heated debate on how celebrities are successful at entrepreneurship when she was announced to become the youngest self-made #billionaire ever.

cnbc.com/2018/07/11/kyl…

#KUWTK
Some feel strongly that she only dethroned #MarkZuckerberg from that position because she is part of the #Kardashian and her #entrepreneurial venture has multi-level of safety net and it allows her to #scaleup at an exponential rate.

Good evening, #entrepreneurs! Let us discuss this week's #GEMChats on #startups and #disruptors to the #tourism industry.

Feel free to #RT, reply and engage with us as we go on with this thread.
The answers to the #poll indicates that most of you feel the biggest gamechanger to the #tourism industry in this #Industry40 is the rise of low cost airlines followed closely by travel accommodations #startups like @Airbnb and @agoda.

Well, you aren't wrong there!
Low cost airlines #democratise travel for everyone. As @tonyfernandes puts it in @AirAsia's tagline: "Now Everyone Can Fly".

Flying had been considered a luxury accessible only to the middle class and well-heeled (sic) - Jack Yu writes at linkedin.com/pulse/now-ever…

Let's discuss this thread in this week's #GEMChats for #entrepreneurs. What are some common mistakes that #startups, especially #fashion startups make that makes them less viable?
Let's breakdown the mistakes into sections of a business. These sections can take form within the Operational, Connectivity and Knowledge aspect of the #startup business. #entrepreneurship #womenentrepreneur

So let's discuss this. Feel free to mention us and let's talk!
Firstly, Knowledge.

Studies have found that 3 out of 4 #startups fail. Wall Street Journal (@WSJ) reported that fashion is one of the most difficult industries.

The lack of knowledge prior to starting and while running a #fashion startup can be a costly mistake.

Great tech companies:

1: First build the great #product.
2: Through that, they establish the best distribution.
3: Build superior traction.
4: Raise higher resources.

1/ Hey #entrepreneurs #CXO #VC #Marketers,

Since Zuckerberg / Evan Spiegel (Snapchat) may no more be the youngest billionaire, you need to take a note of who it is and what it means to create and market new business in the future.

20-year old #KylieJenner:
- her cosmetics biz valued at $0.9 billion.
- $230M net profit
- Only 7 full-time employees!
- 100% ownership with Kylie
- Financed initially through her modeling income

Time for #VC to start funding the Instagram/social-media celeb to fin success.

Kris Jenner (mom who master-minded Kylie's success) can start fund-raising for KimKylie Fund for such celebs

/1 Reddit thread sparked a thought re #startups. You do know that most generic CPG products are made by major brands, yes? Why? Because the purpose of a company is to serve demand, not just sell a product. reddit.com/r/YouShouldKno…
/2 If you're trying to sell your brand, your way, you're doing it wrong. Your goal is to create customers for your market and if that means doing that with different brands, do it.
/3 Look at how successful tech oriented companies offer their product in different ways. Don't sell your product; provide the products the market wants.

If your someone else is building the distribution network with awesome #CustomerExperience in your space then be very scared - Ask the Hollywood studios about Netflix and Amazon Prime

1/ #Design your audience:

1. Curate the initial community with the right audience
2. They, in turn, create the right feedback loop
3. Don't ignore the designing of the community

#startups #designthinking #productdesign bit.ly/2tBK3FR
2/ #Design your audience:

E.g. @dribbble allows only community-nominated 'prospects' (bit.ly/2yRH4OI) to content. This ensures the best and relevant content

#startups #designthinking #productdesign bit.ly/2tBK3FR
3/ #Design your audience:

I would go a step beyond. For optimized network effects of a consumer #productdesign, you need to design the dynamics of consumer interactions.
