Ramai juga yang bertanya, Bagaimana pengalaman saya fundraise ketika saya mula libatkan diri dalam tech? Ini cerita saya #tech #startup 🇲🇾

1) #DeAI will enable the next 10x leap of creating value from #ai models by establishing a digital ecosystem around data
2) #data is a digital-native asset that is destined to be collected, curated, processed, and monetized by digital-native ecosystems #DeAI
3) Centralization is limiting innovation: Central entities control access to key resources such as data and compute creating a barrier of entry for unwanted competition #bigtech vs #startup

THREAD: How to research and launch MVP in 4 Weeks.

This is a collection of knowledge and experience I've used to launch my MVP extrafounder.com in 4 weeks.

Thanks to all mentors and startup resources
@sabakarimm @startupschool @techstars #startup
/1 W1 - Planning

Spend Week 1 on customer research and planning of features.
Use tools like @NotionHQ @airtable @trello to plan your weeks. For each week set super hard deadlines and prioritize tasks from 0 ( Must Have ) to 5 ( wishlist ).
Be realistic but ambitious
/2 W1 - Customer research

Before you know what to build, you first need to talk to potential users of your product.
Find them wherever you can, In-person, twitter, forums... If you can't find any users try @pollfish @SurveyMonkey
Pay attention to how you ask questions.

Just had a call with one of the top 5 #Crowdfunding platforms in #USA regarding “RegCF” funding. Usa allowing non-accredited investors to invest in this one, #startups strangely limited to only one round per year however as Elites still block & interfere w’ freedom for Capital.
2/ Will check website, deal structure success cases to see where we would fit as we have the highest value tech in the world but greedies generally seeing that as an opportunity to be more greedy instead of more supportive. If we raise enough for a whole yr, we donate Tens MMs
3/
FACT:
Bloom energy raised 100 million cash on nothing but a piece of paper. We will have a running super mini. Our tech way better also 3,945+ behind it. Can we ask 300mm on 33%? We should be able to ask for 250MM cash as Bloom CMO said at 20-30% but a RegC will ask Donations

3/15 When you get to the Problem slide, don't just give a bunch of stats. Help explain why those stats matter and why what your pitching is a truly impactful problem.

1/15 Talking about decks yesterday I figured it was worth putting down what I look for in a deck

-Intro
-Problem
-Solution
-Market Size
-Business Model
-Traction
-Pipeline
-3-5 Year Projections
-Go-to-Market Strategy
-Competition
-Team
-Ask

2/15 The Intro slide is just a simple slide with the company name or logo, the CEO's name, and some contact information

#vc #startup #funding #founders #pitch
3/15 The Problem slide is your chance to humanize the problem you are solving. I like a story using a real-world example to make the problem real and human and draw in the investors. remember the art of pitching is the art of storytelling.

Today's task: font and colour scheme for @markfolder. This is going to be fun.

I see a lot of 80s-inspired design from solo makers. Flat designs are still here but more colours thrown in. More background patterns.
Looking through @siteinspire for inspiration...
Liking the monochromatic style. langzullenwelezen.be and verygoodfilms.co for examples.

1/ Valuation venture investing myths #urban #legends a #thread for #desi #founders

If you are a #founder or #startup trying to raise a round, here are a few things you should know before you start.

I wish someone had sat me down and had this chat with me when I started.
2/ No one owes you a round.

First things first. I know we want to change the world, we are innovative, we are working on the bleeding edge, but...

No one owe us a round

An investment is a commercial transaction. It needs to make business sense. Without that, there is no deal
3/ Venture funding is not for everyone.

Fund managers need exits and liquidity events.

Investors need downside protection.

The right deals are bets on growth, scale, markets, risk, timing, teams. Often before everyone gets what is on offer. Getting the combo right is difficult

Been thinking about a concept lately, I'm calling it "High Throughput Management" a play on Andy Grove's book -- an Eng Leader who is able to multitask, address many concerns in different areas, and maintain high response rate on Slack, is highly valued to an org. 1/5 #startup
I pride myself on being responsive and think it engenders a sense of trust and reliability. Who are you more liable to trust? The person who responds immediately all of the time? Or the person who gets back to you hours or days later? Even if I can't respond in full I ack... 2/5
...right away. Not to say there is anything wrong about taking time to respond, but many things can be dealt with by a person of capable skill in seconds, particularly if they are able to multitask at a high rate. High Throughput Management. 3/5

Thread 1/

I asked the question 2 days ago "What is Venture Capital to you"

A majority of the responses were predictably about Venture Capitalist with quite a bit of negativity

But let's talk about what Venture Capital actually is.

#vc #startup #funding #founders
2/

Venture Capital is an alternative asset class. Actually, it is the subset of the alternative asset class of Privet Equity

#vc #startup #funding #founders
3/

An Asset- is something containing economic value and/or future benefit.

An Asset Class- is a grouping of investments that exhibit similar characteristics and are subject to the same laws and regulations

This morning @EUCouncil agree on historic 3y spending to kickstart the economy (750Bn€, w/ 390Bn grants & 360Bn loans) + 7y #EUbudget to invest in the long term (1.074Bn€). Before @Europarl_EN decides on this deal, let's see what’s in it: the good, the bad and the ugly. #Thread
Good n°1: Good news: there is a deal, and we are in July. I personally did not expect them to find an agreement before the fall, so having a deal in mid-July is already a positive piece of news in itself.
Good n°2: The overall architecture has not changed. Yes, less money will be invested than what was originally proposed (more👇), but we still get a reasonably sized budget (1.074bn€ over next 7y) + significant input of fresh money (390Bn€ in grants) that is good for #recovery

1/ "Should I persevere & stay the course or pivot?" Inevitably, most #startup entrepreneurs will face this challenging decision, more so in turbulent times like now. Is there a decision making framework that can guide founders? Here r my $0.02. Would love to hear ur thoughts too.
2/ First, if u r considering a 3rd option to quit when faced w this decision, then choose to quit. Don't feel bad. U likely learnt a lot more than ur frnds who opted for a steady job. Use break to reflect, acquire more skills, build bigger network, find a big prob & attempt again
3/ By quitting now, you will save a bigger heart burn later, save your time and your investor's capital.

With that out of the way, the remaining 2 options, when faced, are very often tough to decide upon for passionate, committed entrepreneurs who don't like to quit.

Last week @amazon acquired self-driving #startup @zoox for $1.2bn.

Zoox has been working on a building a special vehicle just for full #SelfDriving. The company raised ~$1bn in total and was previously valued at $3.2bn. /1

#AI #AutonomousVehicles

techcrunch.com/2020/06/26/ama…
2/ Whether Amazon will "rule the world" or not as an article in @Forbes says, it's yet to be clear where #AutonomousVehicles fit in Amazon's business. At the moment, Zoox is expected to continue working on their robotaxi vision.

forbes.com/sites/bradtemp…
3/ However, Amazon will need to spend a lot more after the acquisition in order to bring #SelfDrivingCars to market.
