Let's have our weekly #GlobalEChats and discuss the topic of #foodtech #delivery.

As #food is a necessity, it is natural that #entrepreneurs are lured into venturing in the F&B business. What more with #IR40, we often think of taking business one step ahead: by involving tech!
Now let's break this down into two types of niche within #fooddelivery and #fnb industry.

1. You own the restaurant and you are providing an additional delivery #service.

2. You don't own any restaurant and you are merely the delivery service.

The two are very different!
To help put points into perspective:

#1 is a classic example of pizza stores such as @DominosMY. Any #eatery can set up its own delivery system.

#2 is a rather new invention. Such examples would be @foodpanda_my and @GrabMY's GrabFood service!

This week, for #GlobalEChats I want to create a #thread to help any roadside, gerai, rickshaw stall owner on how they can embrace #tech in #IR40!

Tak semestinya kalau kita jual pisang goreng, kita tak boleh #techsavvy dalam era arus kemodenan internet kan?

Ini adalah thread!
Macam mana nak luaskan pasaran pelanggan kita? Kalau pelanggan tak datang ke gerai kita, kita gerak ke mana ada ramai pelanggan! Make yourself #mobile, use #foodtrucks.

Nak tahu macam mana nak start foodtruck? Dengar abang @Humblechef berkongsi cerita:

Tapi kita kena consistent, lokasi kena ada separa-tetap (#semipermanent). Waktu jualan kena konsisten. Steadyyyyy. Ada juga perniagaan separa-#mobile seperti YooHoo Hot Dogs oleh @tonyeusoff.

Nak tahu jalan cerita #yoohooshack? Dengarkan kat sini:

Hello, everyone!

We're going to kickstart our weekly #GlobalEChats discussion thread. This week, we'll talk about #fitness #personal #trainer as #entrepreneurs and how #tech can change everything!

Ready? Let's go!
Let's first start with two possibilities in the future.

1. We no longer need humans as #PT personal trainers at the #gym or #field. All will be replaced by #tech and smart applications! 😲

2. Human PTs will still be demanded but will utilise #tech to improve their coaching!
Do you think #1 is truly possible? It seems a bit far-fetched, no?

Meet @ollinfit! Ollinfit is a set of three wearable sensors and smartphone app that work together as your personal trainer. Say what???

Using Ollinfit, you'll be able to workout without needing human coaching!

Latest in Malaysia is the story of Ferris. Ferris merupakan usahawan cilik yang terpengaruh secara positif dengan siri Upin dan Ipin! It's good to see how entrepreneurship in an animated series can piqued children and their interest in entrepreneurship!

If you ask if there are more of such stories in #Malaysia, there are!

11 y.o Elisa Ahmad Sayuti and her friends got inspired by both their participation in Kelab Usahawan Cilik as well as seeing their parents who are also #entrepreneurs!

Let's discuss this thread for our #GlobalEChats!

So what do you make of the wave of #ecommerce these days? Come delve into the ins and outs of it with us!
So #Entrepreneurs out there, what is ecommerce?

It just refers to electronic transactions done in the name of #sale and #purchase.

In simpler terms, you buy and sell things online with the #internet! That's it!
But to whom and from whom can these #transactions take place between? Surprisingly, it's not just between #business (B) and #Customers (C)!

It can take place between:
1. B2B
2. B2C
3. C2C (or P2P)
4. C2B

Let's start our #GlobalEChats on #music!

Among our #discussion topics: 1. #Stakeholders in music and what happens to them? 2. #Production of music 3. #Consumption of music 4. New #technology out there!
Firstly, let's talk about how scary #technology and #advancement can be to #music.

Some stats:
The US lost $12.5 billion a year in total sales due to pirated music.

71k jobs were lost; $2.7bn in annual earnings; $1.1bn of that would have been earned by the industry.
Source:

sheffieldav.com/education/how-…

But as with any #tech #disruption, there are always negative externalities.

In the #music industry, most of the bad press came from #piracy. Sites like Napster and P2P torrenting were rampant back in the day.

Let's start our #GEMChats this week. The topic of this week is #student #entrepreneurship!

We'll discuss these three factors in the poll options below as well as replies to the poll 🧐🧐🧐 Let's take this forward!
#Students? And #entrepreneurship? Is that even a good combination?

Especially when you read that the famous student entrepreneurs like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg are all dropouts!!!

Can students not only run a #business while studying but also be #successful at it?
Taking a different perspective at this is that while these billionaires are college dropouts, the #idea for the #business all came about when they were in #college! As a young #student, your ideas have a chance at being fresh and can be developed through stringent planning!

Hello, everyone and welcome back to our weekly #GEMChats! This week, we'll discuss the results of the poll on whether #celebrities make successful #entrepreneurs!

Let's begin, shall we?

#startup #womenentrepreneur #business #showbiz
So recently @KylieJenner sparked a heated debate on how celebrities are successful at entrepreneurship when she was announced to become the youngest self-made #billionaire ever.

cnbc.com/2018/07/11/kyl…

#KUWTK
Some feel strongly that she only dethroned #MarkZuckerberg from that position because she is part of the #Kardashian and her #entrepreneurial venture has multi-level of safety net and it allows her to #scaleup at an exponential rate.

Good evening, #entrepreneurs! Let us discuss this week's #GEMChats on #startups and #disruptors to the #tourism industry.

Feel free to #RT, reply and engage with us as we go on with this thread.
The answers to the #poll indicates that most of you feel the biggest gamechanger to the #tourism industry in this #Industry40 is the rise of low cost airlines followed closely by travel accommodations #startups like @Airbnb and @agoda.

Well, you aren't wrong there!
Low cost airlines #democratise travel for everyone. As @tonyfernandes puts it in @AirAsia's tagline: "Now Everyone Can Fly".

Flying had been considered a luxury accessible only to the middle class and well-heeled (sic) - Jack Yu writes at linkedin.com/pulse/now-ever…

Let's discuss this thread in this week's #GEMChats for #entrepreneurs. What are some common mistakes that #startups, especially #fashion startups make that makes them less viable?
Let's breakdown the mistakes into sections of a business. These sections can take form within the Operational, Connectivity and Knowledge aspect of the #startup business. #entrepreneurship #womenentrepreneur

So let's discuss this. Feel free to mention us and let's talk!
Firstly, Knowledge.

Studies have found that 3 out of 4 #startups fail. Wall Street Journal (@WSJ) reported that fashion is one of the most difficult industries.

The lack of knowledge prior to starting and while running a #fashion startup can be a costly mistake.

Let's discuss this topic for this week's #GEMChats on #entrepreneurs and #entrepreneurship.

This week's topic is #Venture #Capitals and what is funding like for #womenentrepreneurs!

Please follow us, RT, reply and Like our #thread to discuss this topic.
In June 2017, @HarvardBiz published an article questioning the discrepancy in VC funding for #entrepreneurs of different genders.

In the US, #female entrepreneurs own 38% of the businesses in the country yet receive only about 2% of all venture funding in the whole country!
Some of you answered the poll that the reason for this phenomenon is that there is a lack of female VCs.

The #data however speaks otherwise; the number of female VCs has increased to 7% from 3% in 2014 and yet the funding gap has only increased.

Why does this happen?

Let's discuss yesterday's polls and begin our discussion on youth entrepreneurship with #GEMChats

This is a thread.
In a summary report of an OECD and the European
Commission seminar in 2014 , two things were key points:

1. #unemployment was at 10.9% in 2013 and double for #youth : 23.4%

2. 45% of youth prefer self-employment to
#employment, whereas 37% of adults prefer self-employment.
In Malaysia, MIDF reports find youth unemployment to be high - hitting a record 10.8% last year, attributed to a skills mismatch.

This is a significant 40.5% of total unemployment in #Malaysia.

So what can be done?

Let's discuss the results of our #businesspoll for this week's #GEMChats! #Entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs, let's talk!

"7 Things That Business School Taught Wrongly About Entrepreneurship"

#thread #startup #discussion on @seanwise's Inc article.
1. You Need #Money To Start A Business

Many founders/entrepreneurs often get taught the misconception that investors are the first step in setting up!

Today, the method has changed and so should you! In the rise of startups, following the Lean Startup method is the norm now.
By building a prototype, testing your products to early adopters and then funding through crowdsourcing and family/friends, a successful product will attract VCs and investors to invest without needing to chase after them.

VCs are more focused on scaleups on existing products.
