7 Simple Life Hacks for You! A twitter thread...

Here are simple tips to improve your #life and feel the difference. Here’s how you can do it: Image
1) Prioritize Your Health

It doesn’t take time to stay #healthy, wealthy, and wise. Unfortunately, we don’t pay much attention to our personal well-being.

Here’s what I do:

Every morning, I practice #yoga for my mental and physical well-being. In addition, I always make sure that my daily diet includes leafy vegetables and fresh fruits. Because I believe health is wealth.

Can we put an end to the #FakeNews that Byju’s is raising $1bn at $22bn valuation!? 😓😓

Break the numbers shared below the headlines, and the beans spill out!

The truth 👇 Image
$1bn is what Byju's is reportedly chasing. Though visibility in the media is all about $950m.

This sum can be broken down into 2 parts 👉
1️⃣ A 3yr $250m convertible debt from Davidson Kempner Capital Management (DKCM) which is not known to invest in startups, but in financially distressed companies against significant equity & big interest rates

Acquired by Mukesh Ambani in a hostile takeover, #Milkbasket is growing on steroids 🚀🚀

Here’s how 👇 Image
Founded in ’15, Milkbasket (MB) raised ~$40 million in its lifetime 💰💰

🔆 It would let people order till midnight & then deliver by 7am

🔆 By 2021, having grown to scale, it had burnt a lot of funds. Thus, the company was exploring sale to BigBasket, Swiggy or Amazon
This was when Reliance Retail swung into action:

🔆 It got Vani Kola’s Kalaari Capital to sell its entire 15.26% stake to Mahendra Nahata at mere Rs 400cr valuation!

🔆 As Nahata a Director on Reliance Jio Infocomm’s board, it was clear who the real buyer was

This week I’ll cover avenues for financial support for #startups / other industry by the Technology Development Board (TDB) @tdbgoi. Defence *is* one of the areas supported by TDB, but many defence startups are not aware of the scheme.

No…the TDB and TDF are not related. 1/n
TDB - setup in Sept 1996 under the Technology Development Board Act (1995) - is a statutory body under the Dept. of Science & Technology @IndiaDST. A 1st of its kind organisation within the govt framework, its sole objective is commercializing fruits of indigenous research. 2/n
TDB has been doing good work across multiple sectors. For example, the new terminal at the Chennai airport uses sky lighting domes for building atriums developed by @skyshade__. Skyshade is a TDB beneficiary…as are many others.3/n ImageImage

لماذا تفشل الشركات الناشئة startups؟

تشير الإحصاءات إلى فشل 90 % من الشركات الناشئة

بمعنى من كل 1000 شركة الذي ينجح 100 فقط !

ولكن السؤال المهم هنا ما هي الأسباب لكي نتجنبها

#startups Image
1️⃣ عدم وجود احتياج في السوق للمنتج :

يعد السبب الأساسي لحدوث هذا هو تجاهل عملية بحث السوق، أو خطأ النتائج الواردة بها. تحدث هذه المشكلة أيضًا بسبب عدم الاهتمام بتطوير MVP Minimum Viable Product أي «منتج بالحد الأدنى من الخصائص» لاختبار الفكرة قبل إطلاقها الكامل في السوق. Image
2️⃣ نفاد السيولة :

لا يمكن الحديث عن أسباب فشل الشركات الناشئة دون التطرق إلى المشاكل المالية تختلف أنواع المشاكل المالية التي تتعرض لها الشركات مثل :

- عدم النجاح في إغلاق جولة استثمارية

- استنزاف الكاش في رفاهيات

- استنزاف موارد الشركة في توظيف فوق الحاجة Image

تكلفة بدء شركة ناشئة دون استشارة خبير أكبر مما تعتقد !!

اليوم راسلني أحد الرواد لاحظ أن في مشكله في السوق في وجهة نظرة فقرر ينشأ شركة لحل هذه المشكلة على أساس أن لا يوجد شركات في السوق بنفس الفكرة

بعد إنفاق ما يزيد عن 75 ألف دولار .... انصدم !!!!

#startups Image
وجد في ثلاث شركات تعمل بنفس الفكرة وطبعا نظرا لكبر حجم الشركات الثلاث + عدم وجود كاش كاف لبدء عمليات التسويق والتشغيل

التوصية راح تكون إغلاق النشاط

ولذلك لا تبدأ في أى عمل تجاري دون استشارة خبير

دور المستشار في مشروعك هو حفظ الكاش و الوقت والجهد Image
هذه حالة واحدة من عشرات الحالات التي استلمها شهريا ولذلك أرجوك لا تبدأ في إنفاق دولار واحد دون استشارة خبير

ياجماعة هذا المجال الفشل فيه 90 ٪ بوجود خبير فما ظنك النسبة في غيابه ! Image
