Luna Mattress Cover Internet of Things To Come Startup & Great VNR | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it
Luna is the smart bed cover that learns about you and improves your sleep experience.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Saw a Great VNR (Video News Release) today for Luna Sleep's new web connected mattress.Luna can connect to your phone an and NEST thermostat. Since the mattress cover is "learning" by recording out to the cloud it can make recommendations about things that help / hurt your sleep cycles.


Going to buy one since I hat being HOT in bed and its too cool to connect bed to a smart thermostat and mobile phone. Too Cool!.

Entrepreneurs Use These 10 Words With CAUTION

Entrepreneurs Use These 10 Words With CAUTION | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it
Sprinkle these words through any conversation about entrepreneurship, and you will sound progressive. But think about what you are really saying.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Great post and I agree. There is so much #startupspeak many words like "transparency" or "corporate culture" are doublespeak, meaningless and misleadingly cliche. Most startups attempt to mine new areas, so don't use old worn out language.

DO use great mnemonic-like analogies (read Made To Stick by the Heath brothers for the best guide to finding sticky analogies).

London Startup Incubator Idea

London Startup Incubator Idea | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Creating London Startup Factory
I was surprised when I saw a comment on Peter Relan's new incubator from someone in London wishing they had a similar "school for Startups". 

Peter Relan Launches Incubator 9: http://sco.lt/5u7BRZ 

I assumed a startup incubator already existed in London. If there isn't one, let's create it. I'm confident we can raise the startup capital to help create a London Startup Factory (without breathing hard).  

Need Your Help
If you live in London or know the market we need your help. Do others think a London Y-Combinator or Peter Relan-like incubator is a good idea? If you would be willing to help (since we are on the wrong side of the pond), please email Martin.Smith(at)Atlanticbt.com.

ALSO, if you know of existing UK or London incubators or startup schools let me know so we can research what is already out there.

Thanks, Marty

Do we need to create a Startup Factory in London modeled on the succussful incubators in America?
