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."

@WellsEternity I worked in a #ResearchEstablishment from 1978 - 1985. I thought it sinister that nearly all our #funding came from #TheMinistryOfDefence (we were part of a #plc)

It would seem things are #ABloodyLotMoreSinister #today!

The #MOD only attacked #ForeignNationals!
@WellsEternity These bastards (#BillGates, #DrAnthonyFauci, #ChrisWhitty {& possibly #KlausSchwab}) are #attacking #everybody!

Did you know AB Ed @AdrianaLaGrange cut funding to AB School Council Assoc (ASCA) @ABschoolcouncil by whopping 75%, greatly affecting all AB parents’ ability to have a voice & strength of collective? #abed #abpoli #ableg #education #parents #school #council #community 1/
Did you know AB ED @AdrianaLaGrange formed “Parent Advisory” consisting of 40 AB (handpicked?) parents? Why? ASCA @ABschoolcouncil has formed collective voice for ~90 yrs that represents ALL AB School Councils available to ALL AB parents #abed #abpoli #ableg #education 2/
ASCA is non-profit & drastically slashed budget to survive. Looking at budget breakdown during AGM today, over 50% provides learning opportunities/professional development so parent volunteers can do their legislated jobs on school council #abed #abpoli #parents #volunteers 3/

Finally, the #GoldacreReview is published! (During Parliamentary Easter holidays, mid-ping-pong on the #HealthAndCareBill...)

It's 221 pages - each PDF page is a double page spread - so this could be a lo-o-o-ong [Thread].

Here goes...
First point to note, in the Terms of Reference (p5), is that this is about "access to #NHSdata by #researchers, #commissioners, and #innovators" - i.e. #Planning and #CommercialReUse - so it is directly relevant to the operation of millions of people's #NationalDataOptOuts...

A thread on how to choose MS/Ph.D. programs if you have multiple offers (from International Students' perspective, @Omviser1 )

Disclaimer: These are my personal thoughts and do not represent any organizations that I'm associated with.

#gradschool @AcademicsSay #phdstudent
Before I jump in, some background:

When I chose Penn State over my other acceptances (UIUC, Purdue, UC Santa Barbara etc.), my friends and family were surprised to hear that I gave up a top 5 school to attend a top 15/20 in my area.

Sharing my decisioning criteria below 👇
While funding wasn't an issue to me at all, I encourage everyone to think from a ROI perspective at MS or Ph.D. levels.

I read somewhere that an acceptance without proper funding is essentially a polite decline. $$ matters.

Ph.D admission decisions are kicking in & many students are going through rounds of interviews. Here are a few tips that I’ve learnt and shared over the years.

Disclaimer: These are based on personal experiences derived from a limited sample. Take it with a grain of salt 😀.
(1/19) First of all, let’s start off by acknowledging that PhD admission is extremely competitive. You're prolly fighting for an average of 5-30 spots out of hundreds/thousands of applicants. Attempting itself is a win. Kudos !👏🏿
#admissions #Competition #phdpositions #gradschool
(2/19) Money is at the stake. What does this mean? Someone out there is willing to take a risk on you & guaranteeing that you’ll be taken care of for 5-6 years. Your tuition, fees, health insurance, & monthly living allowance are all paid for by the dept.

demander ce qu’est le #funding...
Définissons tout d’abord ce qu’est un “Perpetual Swap”.
c Il s’agit en réalité de contrats futures dépourvus de date
d’expiration, tout simplement.
2/
Les “Perp” imitent du mieux possible le spot trading avec l’avantage de pouvoir
utiliser des leviers sans contrainte collatérale.
Le “Funding” est le taux auquel les longs payent les shorts, si le funding est positif.
3/
A l’inverse, il s’agit du taux auquel les shorts paient les long, si le funding est négatif.
Ainsi lorsque le funding est négatif ce qui est plutôt rare sur le bitcoin , on est payé pour être acheteur.

Earlier today we were in downtown #yyc handing out water & gatorade and fruit, when we decided to stop & have a break by the Cat Cafe...when we came upon a senior lady rummaging through the city's garbage bins.

#Yyccc #Calgary #Alberta #Canada #SeniorLiving #seniorcare #Seniors
We thought she was looking for bottles to turn in for money but we were wrong. She was looking for both bottles & she was also taking food out of the bins & putting it in her cart.

As soon as we saw that we went over to offer her our help.

#Help #Community #Compassion #BeKind
We went over, asked if we could get her a cold drink & a snack & asked her if she'd like to join us on our break.

She accepted. We went into the coffee shop across from the Cat Cafe (Forgot Name), grabbed some drinks & snacks and sat down in the shade across the street. #Hope

1/ What if we could cure most of the world’s leading causes of death?

Companies are already working to treat chronic illnesses, from cancer to heart disease and even dementia, by targeting ageing itself.

#Longevity #Biotech is the next big wave of medicine. Join the movement.
2/ Slowing the rate of aging has massive medical & financial benefits.

"Using a model of future health and spending in the USA, the effect of delayed aging resulting in 2.2 years add. life expectancy would yield US$7 trillion in savings over 50 years."

cell.com/trends/biotech…
3/ The scientific case for aging has quickly gained credibility as pioneering companies make headway to solve aging.

The field of longevity biotech has attracted a growing wave of #investment.

Billions of #funding have already been put into early companies in this sector.

The Market Cap of all the $ALTS combined.
We all know there was brutal massive correction recently.
The initial dip on may the 19th, followed by a second shake-out on june the 22nd.

We saw a lot of these massive corrections in the previous bullrun.

2/
So, many dumped their bags/were forced to sell due to (high) leverage.

There were several brutal corrections. Some coins saw a -70/80% move in the matter of days.

That could be a sign that we're entering a bearmarket for $ALTS, but are we?

Let's dive in more

So today I was watching Dragon's Den and this was an interesting one. There are several problems here:

1) Pitch was long, basically all exposition, and failed to provide the necessary info about the business or its performance (Metrics)
2/4)

2) The pitch was made to investors who weren't the target customers

3) With a Stanford or any Business School graduate, investors would expect a degree of business acumen, which shockingly just did not exist.
3/4 )

Most investors will simply not invest until the idea being pitched solves a problem they face/see.

This also brings the point forward that grades and schools aren't everything. Sure they're good to have, but you will always need real-world experience.
