Let's have our weekly #GlobalEChats and discuss the topic of #foodtech #delivery.

As #food is a necessity, it is natural that #entrepreneurs are lured into venturing in the F&B business. What more with #IR40, we often think of taking business one step ahead: by involving tech!
Now let's break this down into two types of niche within #fooddelivery and #fnb industry.

1. You own the restaurant and you are providing an additional delivery #service.

2. You don't own any restaurant and you are merely the delivery service.

The two are very different!
To help put points into perspective:

#1 is a classic example of pizza stores such as @DominosMY. Any #eatery can set up its own delivery system.

#2 is a rather new invention. Such examples would be @foodpanda_my and @GrabMY's GrabFood service!

CAPITAL OR NOT.

For so many Startups, the excuse for not actually starting a business or executing an idea is the capital to start with.

Some have had to quit an idea to pursue the needed cash but never came back to the idea. Only a few young minds could manage through.
2/4
Few sources below could help with that needed fund:
*Friends
*Family members
*Angel Investors
*Venture Capitalists
*Banks
*NGOs
3/4
The list above is actually supposed to help out with the needed resources but if none works out, use what you have to get what is needed not what is desired, but remember to always be godly.

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!

0/ Thread. Having spent some time with @Nicolas_Colin on his new book HEDGE about #tech, #entrepreneurship, social #policy and the future of the Safety Net, I'm sharing some things that stuck with me, and why HEDGE is one for the ☀️📚📝 #readinglist amazon.com/Hedge-Greater-…
1/ @Nicolas_Colin is thought-provoking not least because of his vantage point - graduated from the French ENA, worked at the top of the French civil service, set up his own company, and invests in startups all over 🇪🇺 with @_TheFamily
2/ Im not one for party politics, and HEDGE isn't about that. It's a book that speaks to the zeitgeist of the #techlash and ways for #startup #founders and #politicians to think about smart, sensible policies to build an inclusive Safety Net 2.0 📖

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.

BUSINESS LESSONS FROM SCRABBLE | I won a game of #Scrabble over the weekend. I was down by 30 points, but played the word, logjam, on triple word and double letter spots to earn 50 points. #Business #Entrepreneurship
Another day, I was leading in a game of Ludo and had 2 seeds left. My boss was lagging behind, but then he won by pecking my 2 seeds before I could get home. Isn't that like life? Those ahead of you don't always win and vice versa.
My Scrabble game taught me a few lessons about business:

YOU WILL HAVE MORE THAN ONE IDEA | I spoke to a young man recently about a business deal. He was more concerned about the money he would make than the opportunities he would gain. #Thread #Ideas #Entrepreneurship #Career
Sometimes when I talk to entrepreneurs, they seem obsessed with people stealing their ideas. They assume they will have only one good idea in life. They think a single deal will be their only source of prosperity.
Employees do the same. They hold on to jobs desperately. Some embezzle funds because they are not confident of another chance to "hammer".

J'ai lu "Essai sur la nature du commerce en général" de Cantillon (1755), voici un #thread sur des trucs que j'ai appris / que j'ai trouvés intéressants / des extraits choisis. 1/
2/ Bien qu'"Essai" ait été probablement rédigé vers 1730, il n'a été publié qu'en 1755 suite à une forte censure en #France, il a été diffusé sous la forme d'un manuscrit inédit entre son achèvement et sa publication. Il est considéré comme le 1er traité complet sur l'#économie
3/ Le type de monnaie utilisé n'est pas décrété mais provient de l'usage. L'or et l'argent sont de facto les meilleures solutions (en 1730. Et en 2018? quid des #cryptomonnaies ?)

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.

THE OLD MAN'S TALE: I met the old man at a presentation. I was a brand consultant on a large corporate project. The client insisted I sit on a panel to select marketing agencies. The gentleman; old enough to be my father, represented an agency in #Nigeria. #HR #Entrepreneurship
As he stepped in for the presentation, I saw the expression of the young 20-something year olds on the client's side. They were bright eyed top shots from Ivy League Universities. They were recruited to revitalise the DNA of the decades old institution.
I heard the hushed sniggers as they wondered what this "old papa" was doing there. Didn't he have staff capable of running through a PowerPoint?

I just realised why the best business incubators/business hubs succeed. They not only help entrepreneurs to finetune their products and get funding. They also help those entrepreneurs create their first market/demand for their products. #Entrepreneurship #Nigeria
I remember what @MrSleevesUp said about @VeniaBizHub - how a few of the tenants got their first big break there by becoming service providers to other tenants. #Entrepreneurship #Nigeria
It's not enough to have a brilliant idea or product. Who are you selling to? Where's your market? I always reject the single story of the "extrovert entrepreneur". There are many ways to create a market even if you're not the archetypical hustler. #Entrepreneurship #Nigeria

Let's discuss this topic for this week's #GEMChats on #entrepreneurs and #entrepreneurship.

This week's topic is #Venture #Capitals and what is funding like for #womenentrepreneurs!

Please follow us, RT, reply and Like our #thread to discuss this topic.
In June 2017, @HarvardBiz published an article questioning the discrepancy in VC funding for #entrepreneurs of different genders.

In the US, #female entrepreneurs own 38% of the businesses in the country yet receive only about 2% of all venture funding in the whole country!
Some of you answered the poll that the reason for this phenomenon is that there is a lack of female VCs.

The #data however speaks otherwise; the number of female VCs has increased to 7% from 3% in 2014 and yet the funding gap has only increased.

Why does this happen?

I prayed to God for Knowledge
He gave me wisdom
Ever since she came into my life all i see is opportunity
She guides me daily and teaches me the right step to take,
How can I take her for granted.

Thank you wisdom for flowing through my veins....
THREAD
At a very young age hmm let's say 12 or so
All I asked God was knowledge
I never asked for anything
Back in the days even as teenagers
My friends would call me conglomerate
I use to take it as joke ooo
In short, I never took it as anything
As I grew older I started seeing my myself as an entrepreneur
I worked ooo
Haa I worked. But it was one place I never wanted to be
As an entrepreneur, I knew I needed those lessons

everything is a step in time. It makes me wonder how every "BIG BRAND" out there made it. Did they actually think they will take the market by storm? Did the founder do it all alone? Did he/she build a team? How did he/she start the company? Was the idea that brilliant?
Thread👇
Is it actually a straight road to success or they had to fail at some point, pause or start all over? Maybe the marketing strategy? Where they that good they cannot be ignored? Maybe their product or service was the best OR were they simply lucky."All the above stated ideas kept
jogging my memory. Truth is they all have a "COMMON DENOMINATOR" (they kept doing something about the brand each day no matter how little, making mistakes and perfecting them, working out new ideas, plans and strategies, getting bored, tired, giving up and coming back on board).

Let's discuss yesterday's polls and begin our discussion on youth entrepreneurship with #GEMChats

This is a thread.
In a summary report of an OECD and the European
Commission seminar in 2014 , two things were key points:

1. #unemployment was at 10.9% in 2013 and double for #youth : 23.4%

2. 45% of youth prefer self-employment to
#employment, whereas 37% of adults prefer self-employment.
In Malaysia, MIDF reports find youth unemployment to be high - hitting a record 10.8% last year, attributed to a skills mismatch.

This is a significant 40.5% of total unemployment in #Malaysia.

So what can be done?

1/ From 2000 to 2002, I traveled across India studying toymakers who made and sold their wares on the streets. #Entrepreneurship of the poor
2/ How these men and women used their creative impulse to survive grinding poverty made me feel great respect for the #UnorganisedSector.
3/ I found among toymakers and street vendors the best qualities of what is expected from citizens - live & let live, truly #SecularSharing
