Yeni mezun iş arayan arkadaşlara, Türkiye için net ücret, brüt ücret ve işveren maliyeti kavramlarını (görülen lüzum üzerine) açıklamakta fayda var. İşin üzücü yanı "deneyimli" olan çalışanlar bile bu konuda bilgisiz kalabiliyor. Ben kendi alanım olan IT'deki durumu anlatacağım.
Buradaki rakamlar, anlatılar, çarpanlar vs. herhangi bir vergi avantajı olmayan işletmeler içindir. Yani teknokent / teknopark yerleşkesinde olmayan normal bir yazılım şirketinin mali tabloları dikkate alınmıştır diyebiliriz.
Bilgiler #startup kurup milyarder olma hayalindeki arkadaşlara, kendi şirket maliyetlerini hesaplarken de yardımcı olabilir. İşkembe-i kübradan atıp da 6 ay sonra borç batağına batmamak için dikkate almakta fayda var.

Advice to a friend dealing with their chaotic startup...

Startups are inherently chaotic. No chaos = no opportunity. Startups exist because there is uncertainty, and new things to learn. (1/7) #startup
During a period of rapid growth, all things (structures, processes, etc.) eventually break. Some chaos is self-inflicted, and too much chaos can cause collapse / chronic harm (2/7) #startup
Agility is solving today’s problem, while not limiting your ability to solve tomorrow’s problem. There’s always a temptation to solve tomorrow’s problems.

There are good ideas everywhere, and opportunities everywhere. So focus is hard (3/7) #startup

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.

>>About Frank Parlato of Frankreport.com: Some people have asked me if I am a friend of Frank Parlato, a newspaper owner and blogger who first first broke the story of women being forcibly branded as part of the #NXIVM cult. In response, I must clarify details about this.
In fact, I am not an established "friend" of Frank Parlato, who is the publisher of frankreport.com, and The Niagara Reporter weekly newspaper. Frank is someone who I spoke with by telephone, about three weeks ago, who I respect very much. I will explain why. #NXIVM
Frank Parlato, as far as I was able to ascertain, is a well known publicist and journalist who has worked on political campaigns. I read that Frank spent years fighting to expose Keith Raniere, who is accused of branding and enslaving female followers of his organization, #NXIVM.

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.

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?

This is a good tweet about the idiocy and classism that permeates #startup culture. I have some thoughts.
In Startup Land, if you're not leveraging technology or "solving a problem," you're not allowed to be part of the club.

If you're not coming to the table with an entirely original idea (no matter how dumb), then good luck finding support.
This approach is harmful because it invalidates most entrepreneurship and it ignores a huge swath of the U.S. economy.

[Tweetstorm] What's the TAM Chasm? A #SaaS #startup story

Early stage founders typically get thrown for a loop when they're asked for their TAM. Here's two ways to think about it that both make sense, but not really for the same person at the same time!
Let's say you're a domain expert - 10-15 years in manufacturing sw for auto ancillary units. You know the end users, you've done pre-sales, deployment, you know what their problems are, you even know how to solve some

You decide to startup to solve one of the problems Yay!
The founders of your company hate to see you leave, but also know you're a go-getter. They agree to support you with angel investment, and access to customers. You find a few friends who're hitting a glass ceiling, and want out of mid-mgmt, and into an exciting startup.

"7 Things That Business School Taught Wrongly About Entrepreneurship"

#thread #startup #discussion on @seanwise's Inc article.
1. You Need #Money To Start A Business

Many founders/entrepreneurs often get taught the misconception that investors are the first step in setting up!

Today, the method has changed and so should you! In the rise of startups, following the Lean Startup method is the norm now.
By building a prototype, testing your products to early adopters and then funding through crowdsourcing and family/friends, a successful product will attract VCs and investors to invest without needing to chase after them.

VCs are more focused on scaleups on existing products.

Having a rich investor buy into our business ideas to fund the growth of our empires is a dream for many startup founders.
For the rest of us, we have to wake up and fund our own businesses.
Review this thread for practical tips for Bootstrapping your business.

#startupgrind
What is Bootstrapping?
The Small Business Encyclopedia defines it as: Financing your company's startup and growth with the assistance of or input from others.

I define it as: Building a business with out of pocket financing w/out the guidance of a parent company.
Bootstrapping Strategy #1
Know your operating costs and expenses. Ruthlessly manage unnecessary expenses.
If your partners are money-motivated, it is important to form an agreement to delay gratification. Run a lean ship in order to stay afloat.
