1/21: I was listening to the 20 Minute VC podcast w/@davidtisch as a guest. He threw out an important concept that most Founders don’t think about enough: “Is My Company A Top Half Performer?” This is a critical concept that’s worth unpacking: 👇👇👇
2/21: First, here’s a link to the 20 Minute VC podcast episode. It was a fun one to listen to and definitely one of the better interviews that Harry has recorded.

3/21: Now for the “Top Half Performer” concept.

It starts with the unfortunate truth that most #startups fail. And this truism even applies to #startups that have already passed a VC’s process. Even after careful curation and diligence most VC backed #startups fail.

1/21: It’s not uncommon for a #VC to chat with an early stage #startup and within weeks get introduced to 3-4 other #startups tackling the same opportunity at the same time. When this happens it’s rarely coincidental and definitely worth paying attention to. A thread 👇:
2/21: It’s a generalizable truth that Startups attack market opportunities. Businesses sell products, deliver experiences and solve problems, and Startups attempt to deliver vastly superior products, experiences and solutions to those that currently exist in their markets.
3/21: A Startup is a simple beast at its core. A team is assembled to build a solution to a perceived problem with the goal of distributing and selling it such that economic value accrues to the provider of the solution. (Whew!)

Building #startups in public:

It took us 16 months to get to £1M ARR at @yourheights.

Here's some of the moments, milestones, things we tried and fails along the way....

(A thread)

....It all started with a newsletter (are you even a #startup if it doesn't start with one!?)
1. November 2019:

Started writing a newsletter (called Dawn) on what science says about taking care of your brain with the tagline

"Don't waste time with science. Let us do that for you".

Lols indeed. - original site still live.

Mum liked it.
2. Built an audience engaging with our journey for over a year pre launch.

Product development with @TaraSwart and @SophieDietitian happened in the background developing our launch product.

Newsletter growth PAINFULLY SLOW but got to 3,000 weekly readers after 12 months...

How did the inspiration of @_SocialSX come into fruition?

"A cloud based social media platform to connect people with healthcare providers around the world".

The story 🧵
It all started with 200lbs lost, 11+ surgeries, health issues and community.

I could not find any information on any platform and when I did I had to go get user insights in real time. Having users everyday people be support was 100% better then the provider insight.
So Social SX was created and the community grew taking over the platform for Healthcare resources and information.. and best thing about it?? They NEVER had to leave the group for anything. Everything was in one place at the click of a button.

¿Qué es #kusama ? ¿Por qué es considerada la blockchain prima-hermana de #Polkadot ?

Abro hilo:
Todo el mundo habla de Polkadot, pero poca gente nombra a Kusama. El hecho de no ser mainstream no quiere decir que no tenga potencial, y lo vais a poder comprobar a continuación.
⬇️ Image
Kusama está programada con #Substrate , y contiene casi al 100% el mismo código y estructura que Polkadot. La ventaja de #Kusama es que la gobernanza y las decisiones que se toman a través de su comunidad son 4 veces más rápidas.
La gente suele pensar que @kusamanetwork es la red de prueba de #Polkadot y, a pesar de que en cierta manera los programadores realizan cambios y adaptaciones en #Kusama , las redes de prueba son realmente Westend y Rococo.

I have always tried to imagine life with a background music. Since memes are the new background music, here i try to put the story of @KaagazS in memes. A Thread


Jan 2019 – We decided to shutdown @Tapp_Me . It was a tough decision and being heartbroken is an understatement
Being suddenly jobless @GandhiSnehanshu wanted to do another startup, alongwith @1992gaurav. Once bitten, twice shy Gaurav wasn't convinced, he wanted to do MBA.

“Would you kill the Founder for a job? Would you look back at this moment in your life with regret?” ~Gandhi

1/33: So you want to be a top performing #VC investor. Here are six exercises you can practice as you evaluate #startups that will hone your skills, establish frameworks, and help identify great investments.

Read on if you’re interested:
2/33: Exercise 1: Describe the company’s magical experience

After reading a deck or hearing a pitch, can you easily articulate who their perfect customer is and how they’d interact with the company’s product/service in a perfect manner?
3/33: Only after you understand the experience that a company is trying to create can you evaluate it against currently available options. If the new experience is truly magical and differentiated then it might be worth your time.

Here are the key findings from @DocSend's latest pre-seed fundraising research covered in today's webinar:…

Thread 👇 Image
In 2020, VCs spent over 4 minutes reading decks that successfully raised. Last year, VCs spent more time on decks that were unsuccessful in fundraising. Image
When VCs read your pitch deck, they will go back to read it to dig into more slides for more information. Image

1/ Recently finished @RogerLMartin's The Design of Business. Here are some of my top takeaways 🧵 #startups #innovation #DesignThinking #StrategicDesign Image
2/ Innovation is about seeing the world not as it is, but as it could be. It's about exploring really "wicked problems" whose solutions can't be found in past experience or proven by data.
3/ "Design thinking" focuses on accelerating the pace at which knowledge advances from mystery (an unexplainable problem) to
heuristic (a rule of thumb that guides us toward a solution) to algorithm (a replicable success formula).

Intent-based keywords and pages @zapier

Growth Hacking Thread Day 47👇

#GrowthHacking #MarketingTwitter #GrowthMarketing #startups #products #100DaysofGrowth
1/ What's more than articles for SEO? It's intent-based keywords and their related pages. They tend to perform better than normal blog articles that doesn't mean you shouldn't do the article I'm suggesting also include an intent-based strategy in your SEO.
2/ So what exactly is this? Let's say you are searching to connect your Gmail to airtable or any other integrations than the first thing that shows up will be the zapier URLs to help you integrate. This doesn't seem enough on a single URL but on a macro level it has a huge impact

While running a business, it’s likely that business owners, partners or managers will find themselves involved in one dispute or the other.

See thread!

#wednesdaythought #Litigation #mediation #WednesdayMotivation #Nigeria
These disputes may range from breach of contract, employer/employee dispute, shareholders or owners dispute etc.

Litigation is one of the most frequently utilized forms of dispute resolution. It involves going before a judge to resolve claims that one party has against another.
