What is #GrowthHacking and how does it differ from marketing?

This is a useful point 👇 - however, marketing encompasses many disciplines, from sales / account mgt through to direct response. So what does this tell us? 🧵… Image
1. The #Growth 'data driven mindset / culture' is no different from your direct response ('direct marketing' of old) team - however, the tools have changed - python replaces excel / access but dashboard software makes data accessible for non technical specialists too.
Regardless of technical skill, however, can your growth marketeers uncover which lever (or combination of levers) works best for your startup, in this season, at this stage of your #startup growth*?

(* You guessed it, it's a moving target)

We've now talked to over 100 #climate #startup #founders for @enduring_planet and we're seeing a pattern. A 🧵
(1) First and foremost, there is incredible innovation happening in the space. The pace at which new #climatetech is entering the market and getting validation is staggering. We are truly at the early days of a New Climate Economy. I AM SO EXCITED 🍿🚀
(2) unfortunately, most #founders in #climatetech don't think holistically about the capital they're raising to finance their businesses. The vast majority (over 90%) are going exclusively after VC, without considering non-dilutive options

Being a parent has made me a better startup founder (and vice versa).

@sacca shared similar learning with @HarryStebbings on how he approaches his children and team members.

The similarity between parenting and managing is astounding.

When someone in your life is upset - your kid, your partner, or your team member - Here's the golden rule:

You repeat back to them what you just heard them say.

Then wait. Let it sink in.

Don't try to solve their problems (*important*). Don't minimize the situation either.
People - kids and adults alike - all crave to be heard, to be understood.

Interestingly this is *exactly* what FBI's go-to negotiation technique looks like (h/t @VossNegotiation)

6 Things that I’ve learned as a startup founder from the 6 games in the recent Netflix hit
Squid Game 🦑 !

Here we go 👇🏻

#squidgame #startup #founder
#1 Green Light; Red Light ✅❌:

First mover advantage -
You get to the finish line faster without much competition

First mover disadvantage -
Competitors will be learning from your mistakes and play better.
#2 Honeycomb 🍯 Cookie Game

Any decisions/plans/strategy you make early on in your startup matters.

However, nobody knows if it works or not.

Be patient in execution.

Learn from others during the process. (Lick the cookie 😂)

Fight until the very last second.

Last week we interviewed, CoinDCX (@CoinDCX), India’s first crypto unicorn🦄

- Founded in 2018
- Onboarded 3.5 million+ users (so far)
- Team of 200+ people
- User signUps increased by 235.8%

Exponential growth, right?

Here are 7 business lessons we learned from CoinDCX

🧵👇 Coin DCX
1/ In business, starting early is important

CoinDCX proved it.

They didn't wait for the crypto industry to explode in India.

In fact, the co-founder Sumit Gupta (@smtgpt) had the vision of building CoinDCX in 2014.
2/ Experience pays

Result of starting a business with little to no experience in the field?

Rookie mistakes made by the team.

At CoinDCX, this is not the case.

Both Sumit Gupta & Neeraj Khandelwal (@nrjkhandelwal) have years of experience in the technology & crypto field.

In @PunchbowlNews AM: We took a look at the staredown between @RepJoshG, @RepJayapal and @SpeakerPelosi — three people we cover quite closely here at Punchbowl News

(BTW, i made this photo montage. #startup)
@PunchbowlNews @RepJoshG @RepJayapal @SpeakerPelosi There’s a real danger at this point that infra/reconciliation could go down — so everything that happens here is very important
@PunchbowlNews @RepJoshG @RepJayapal @SpeakerPelosi THE STANDOFF

Jayapal says she’s got 48 Dems ready to vote against infra.

Gottheimer wants a vote, as he was promised, next week

But it will fail unless Pelosi steps in and turns mods.

From rejecting a seven-figure job to building India’s largest platform for financial education,

Here’s the story behind my entrepreneurial journey so far.
I graduated from IIM Indore in 2008 and got placed in JP Morgan. Having a zeal to do something in the #education sector, I didn't take that #job, to start up a new venture of my own.
During that time CAT went online. I started my own venture- FireUp, an e-learning portal for training for #management entrance examinations.

This is going to be a long thread, but bear with me. As our product of love and labor—our #startup—comes out of stealth mode today, I want to take you on a short journey on how it came to be.

Buckle up. This is @SketchnoteCo 🧵 1/n
As some of you may know, I co-founded Diabeto, which was one of the few early hardware startups from India that saw success. Early success.

Because of this, I was invited by several accelerators in India to share my learnings with early-stage entrepreneurs. 2/n
One accelerator I was involved with—Zone startups—were investing in very early hardware startups by women.

Over the 3 yrs of my association, I noticed the quality of women entrepreneurs was increasing at a great pace.

Here's me at one of those meetings. ⬇️ 3/n

If you're not a developer it's hard to see why @Polkadot has an insane advantage over every other blockchain.

I believe $DOT and $KSM are going to be the Nr. 1 blockchains in the future.

Here's why 👇🧵

(hint: it's because ecosystem and dev tools)
Building something as complex as $DOT takes some very bright minds. The more you can get, the better.

In one interview @gavofyork said that building @ethereum took 3 developers 2 weeks, but building @Polkadot took 50 experts 3 years.
#Blockchains are one of the most exciting technologies in our lifetime (believe it or not, they will change the world).

However, there is a good amount of Layer 1 chains.

Tricky part:
As a dev, you need to choose where to build on. (in most cases)

After months of hard work you’ve managed to raise a comfortable amount of new of capital for your #startup. Now what?

A simple thread for Founders and VCs about shifting from a “need to raise” to a “need to prove” mindset.
2/21: Preamble: Not all businesses are venture backable. If the size/outcome potential is too small then raising VC money and running a VC backed startup playbook might not make sense. This thread is meant as good, generic advice for early/mid stage VC backed businesses.
3/21: Venture investing is very simple at its core. VCs invest in Founders who are building businesses that solve big problems.

Every Founder’s pitch describes a large profound problem, their solution to the problem, and the financials the business will generate over time.

All about Credit Cards 💳⬇️

A Thread that will help you understand how it works? How to use them effectively so that you can beat 90% of people who fall into the debt trap?

Long 🧵 (Part-1)

#CreditCards #PersonalFinance #Startup #Money #CreditScore #Banking
Statistics say there are around 60Mn credit cards users in India 🇮🇳 and we are an underpenetrated market as compared to western countries. Millions of new Credit Cards get issued by leading Indian banks every year but the concern is do they promote any formal education about it?

1/12: It shouldn’t be a surprise that I love helping #startups. It’s what I do. But a little known fact is that my favorite show is American Ninja Warrior (@ninjawarrior). To me, building a #startup has parallels to ANW that great VCs and Founders should internalize. 🧵👇
2/12: It’s hard to deny that startups generate infectious energy. Founders have no political filters clouding their ideas. They have no higher-ups waiting around to smash their ideas. They don’t care about sacred cows and they don’t care if hundred-year-old brands are shattered.
3/12: What Founders care about is solving problems and being better than those that came before them. But while Founders believes that they’re destined to succeed, statistics would suggest otherwise. They’re most likely going to fail or stall somewhere on the way to greatness.

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) 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.
