Today, many startup founders wonder how to write a great blurb for their firms. Well, it's not rocket science, but effort has to be there! A twitter thread...

#startups #blurb #intro #pitch #gist #economics #business #finance #investment Image
A great blurb always helps startup owners effectively introduce their products & services to their target audience. Besides increasing the sales, a short yet crispy blurb can also attract investors for startup funding. It can be a tool to attract the best talents, too. #HR #IT
Your startup blurb should be different for different purposes, but here’s what a great blurb should consist of:

-A pitch within 25 words.
-Use bullet points to highlight relevant stuff.
-Additional context

They said it was impossible. After decades of #antitrust cases over #PredatoryPricing - selling below cost to kill or prevent competitors - the #ChicagoSchool of neoliberal #economists "proved" predatory pricing didn't exist, so courts could stop busting companies for it.

If you'd like an essay-formatted version of this thread to read or share, here's a link to it on, my surveillance-free, ad-free, tracker-free blog:…

Predatory pricing - the economists explained - was illegal, but it was also imaginary. A mirage. No one would predatory price, because it was "irrational." Even if someone irrational enough to try it, they would fail. Stand down, American judges - predatory pricing is solved.

¿Cómo el mayor colapso bancario desde la Gran Recesión del 2008 puede desencadenar una crisis sin precedentes?

Las industrias #tech #crypto #vc están en PELIGRO.

Controlar la bomba o mandar todo a la 💩 será decidido este fin de semana...🧵👇🏽hilo en plastilina y español.
Como muchos ya saben, cerró el Silicon Valley Bank, el 16vo banco más grande de EEUU. Líder para custodiar fondos de startups por 40 años, fue víctima de lo que se conoce como un bank run o cascada de liquidez.

Los depósitos del #SVB aumentaron 3 veces de 2019 a 2021, y mientras fondos de capital de riesgo invirtieron en exceso en startups sin un modelo de negocio real, SVB hizo LO MISMO...pero en bonos del Tesoro de tasa fija y otros instrumentos de deuda.

Pequeño hilo para entender qué está ocurriendo con la estampida bancaria del Banco de Silicon Valley #SVB que ha puesto en riesgo varias startups.

Debido a las bajas tasas de interés en EEUU durante la pandemia, el sector tecnológico tuvo un crecimiento explosivo. 1/n
No solo todos podían tener acceso a créditos con tasas muy bajas, sino que debido a que todos estábamos encerrados, los servicios digitales crecieron abruptamente.

Durante ese periodo, el banco recibió muchos depósitos de capitales de riesgo #VC interesados en invertir... 2/n
... en startups. Con ese dinero, el SVB le compró bonos del tesoro al gobierno norteamericano.

Pero, en 2022 la fiesta terminó. La Reserva Federal #FED (el Banco Central de EEUU) comenzó a subir las tasas de interés y eso le generó un problema al #SVB: los bonos... 3/n

I think at large people are missing the significance of a #web3 #wallet beyond just #hodling your favourite #Crypto #Cryptocurency token.

Maybe the same way they effortlessly think about using the #chrome browser.

They are both portals for the #WWW and #Web3 respectively
There are new functionalities being added to #web3 wallets to exist as wallets to hold your #credentials for zero knowledge #authentication.

This wallet market is going to be worth a whopper of a predicted $7 trillion market by 2027 alone.
One of the most significant comments on this movement is from the creation of the open source Open Wallet Foundation via Linux, which has been noted as potentially more significant than #Linux itself!!!!!

#private_equity & #VC the big money, big #profits / big #losses

There exists a significant distinction between "Private Equity" (PE) and "Venture Capital" (VC), which can be explained as follows.
Most individuals are familiar with investing in the "public market" such as stocks
However, "private markets" are involved in investing in a company that is not publicly listed, such as "venture capital" (VC) or "private equity" (PE).
There are five stages involved in VC to PE investing, which are as follows:
#Angel (pre-VC): Angel investors provide early-stage support to startup-level companies before institutional investors are ready to invest. These companies may have an idea but have not validated it properly yet or built it into a business. Funding mostly from friends & family.

#ChatGPT is a before and after in the economy. Many sectors are now disrupted.

This should greatly increase investment in AI versus the old-school version of doing things.

But not all #AI #investment will succeed.

Here's my take on the two divisions of AI (feedback welcome):


AIs based on PUBLIC models or data.

Startups that use models like #GPT or others based on image, text... trained with publicly available dataset/models, maybe adding their own "layers/fine tuning".
The part they are building, in many cases, may be overperformed for the biggest models, their "parents".

Like Saturn and his Son.

General Partners (GP) are the showrunners of a #VC firm. If they perform well, they can make big money. But if they lose, their career is over.

A 🧵on how do VCs make money…
#VCs make money in 2 ways:

1️⃣ Management Fee - typically 2% per annum of the total corpus across the fund lifecycle (10 years)

2️⃣ Carry - usually 20% of the profits generated after returning the initial capital of the investors

Let’s take the recent example of #IndiaQuotient👇
The Bangalore based VC firm returned its first fund of ₹32 Cr with a net multiple of 5.9x to its investors. Took them 9 years.

There was a time when a slew of B2B commerce startups - Inframarket, Moglix, Zetwerk and likes - got funded. That was followed by a dry spell when B2B was put on “Back Burner” and consumer-tech became the buzz-word - gaming, consumer social, creator-economy occupied all minds
Lately, the wave is turning

Introducing my sectors of focus to folks at VC events as “B2B commerce and consumer-tech” from “consumer-tech and B2B commerce” earlier, I witnessed the mood of ecosystem change first-hand
My interest in the sector goes back a long way. Having grown up in a through and through business family, “dhandha” companies dealing in on-ground operations, intricate networks of suppliers, distributors, and consumers, complex payment & WC cycles have always piqued my curiosity

The #1 responsibility of a Founder is to make sure their company doesn’t run out of cash, but raising capital in today’s market is TOUGH.

Here’s a quick framework for determining how challenging it will be for a #startup to raise new #VC capital.

Is your #startup ready? 🧵👇
The first truism that should be internalized is that the playbook for raising capital in 2020 and 2021 won’t work today.

The past few years were anomalies and everyone’s expectations should be reset.

Raising multiple rounds of capital based on team and TAM won’t work anymore.
While there are many VCs, most startups will have a tough time raising capital in this market if they don’t show well on 5 major dimensions:

👉Very Few Leaps of Faith
👉Material POSITIVE Progress
👉Insider Support
👉Capital Efficiency
👉Realistic Expectations

What is the total addressable market for Self Sovereign Identity #SSI networks, vendors, and ecosystems.

Yes you guessed it! 8 billion humans.

A user centric model for portability and interoperability for any and all to enable choice and Inclusion.

Enter @cheqd_io $Cheq
Not only is the total addressable market so large, but with enabling a user to control their own data it gives them access horizontally and vertically between all types of use cases.

The 100s of services you've signed up for in a lifetime where you control nothing.

It is a necessity to pivot from this to enable revocation of your credentials, and reduce the risks that are traditional data bases, or honey pots for fraud.

We see this more and more!

It's not only SSI though, the technology behind it expands much further.

It's very well hidden down the bottom of #CMC, and also not captured the full attention of the #Cosmos #CosmosEcosystem yet. @cosmos @CosmosClub_ @cosmoshub @cosmosibc.

"We’re the creators of #Hyperledger #Indy and the #Sovrin Network, a co-creator of the #cheqd Network, and a primary contributor to Hyperledger #Aries and #Ursa"
Some more on @evernym,

We’re a co-editor of the Verifiable Credential spec at the @w3c, which was approved as an official recommendation in 2019 .. also a co-author and co-editor of the Decentralized Identifier spec .. a co-chair of W3C’s DID and VC WGs

We are frequently asked what drives #outperformance for a #VC

To answer this we created a database of enterprise vs consumer performance 📊to spot patterns & analyze returns

🧵to share high level findings, but to dig deeper, download the full report👇

🔗 Image
First, let’s define a power law::

We mean that only a small percentage of returns is responsible for a large percentage of overall return value, either for a specific fund or the industry as a whole.
TL;DR: Both enterprise and consumer exits can produce power law returns, but the nature of them vary considerably.

Take back your data with @cheqd_io

To accelerate this vision, Avast acquired Evernym in late 2021, and more recently acquired @securekey in early 2022. Both companies were founding members of DIF and member organizations of W3C, with Evernym also a founding member of ToIP.
