How GoPro Is Transforming Advertising As We Know It

How GoPro Is Transforming Advertising As We Know It | Empreendedorismo e Inovação | Scoop.it
Harnessing content created by the user is not just an affordable marketing strategy; it's also pretty powerful stuff.
Paulo Heleno's insight:

Everyone got a glimpse of the power of user-generated content thanks to GoPro’s recent financial disclosures leading up to its public offering. The company more than doubled its net income from 2010 to 2011 to $24.6 million but only spent $50,000 more in marketing costs to do it, according to Wall St. Daily. And GoPro repeated the feat in 2013, increasing marketing costs by only $41,000, but making $28 million more in net income.

SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China will set up a government venture capital fund worth 40 billion yuan ($6.5 billion) to support start-ups in emerging industries, in its latest move to support the private sector and foster innovation.

"The establishment of the state venture capital investment guidance fund, with the focus to support fledging start-ups in emerging industries, is a significant step for the combination of technology and the market, innovations and manufacturing," China's State Council, the cabinet, said in a statement.

"It will also help breed and foster sunrise industries for the future and promote (China's) economy to evolve towards the medium and high ends," it said in the statement published in the government's website, www.gov.cn, referring to sectors which the government is promoting such as technology and green energy.

Microcrédito deu a mão aos novos empreendedores e está a arrebitar o comércio local

Microcrédito deu a mão aos novos empreendedores e está a arrebitar o comércio local | Empreendedorismo e Inovação | Scoop.it
Associação Nacional de Direito ao Crédito já ajudou cerca de 200 empresários a abrir negócio este ano, com recurso a pequenos empréstimos. O PÚBLICO foi conhecer alguns casos de sucesso em Lisboa e no Porto.

Ocupam lojas esvaziadas pela crise, à medida que encolhem os números do desemprego. São jovens licenciados com uma ideia, desempregados menos jovens mas ainda longe da reforma ou, simplesmente, pequenos empresários aos quais a banca fechou a porta. A Associação Nacional de Direito ao Crédito (ANDC) deu-lhes a mão e ajudou-os a subir os degraus do negócio, num caminho onde muitas vezes se fica para trás.

“São precisos mais casos de sucesso” no empreendedorismo português

“São precisos mais casos de sucesso” no empreendedorismo português | Empreendedorismo e Inovação | Scoop.it
Fundador da Startup Braga argumenta que é preciso criar mais empresas em Portugal.

Carlos Oliveira fundou uma empresa que vendeu à Microsoft, foi secretário de Estado do empreendedorismo e encabeça agora uma incubadora de startups em Braga. De passagem por Lisboa para promover a Startup Braga, que foi inaugurada em Maio e onde estão 13 empresas, argumenta que o país teve nos últimos anos uma mudança de mentalidades no que diz respeito aos riscos de abrir uma empresa. Mas diz que o caminho a percorrer ainda é longo e que “são precisos mais casos de sucesso”.

Entre os problemas a resolver no empreendedorismo português, argumenta o ex-governante, está a necessidade de criar mais empresas, para que aumentem as probabilidades de surgirem negócios bem-sucedidos e que tenham impacto na economia. “Seria um tremendo insucesso se daqui a cinco anos não tivéssemos mais cinco ou seis casos de sucesso”, afirma.

Crowdfunding já atingiu quase 1,2 milhões em Portugal, mas continua aquém da Europa

Crowdfunding já atingiu quase 1,2 milhões em Portugal, mas continua aquém da Europa | Empreendedorismo e Inovação | Scoop.it
Em apenas três anos, o financiamento através da multidão teve um forte crescimento e as plataformas nacionais acreditam que continuará a ganhar adeptos. Ainda assim, Portugal é um dos mais atrasados nesta área em comparação com outros países europeus.

Dois designers gráficos, dois arquitectos e uma grande vontade de ver as fotografias de volta às paredes das casas e não apenas esquecidas nos dispositivos digitais. Foram estes os ingredientes necessários para nascer a Onframe, o projecto que obteve maior apoio financeiro através de crowdfunding em Portugal no ano passado. Este é só um dos negócios financiados através da multidão no país, num momento em que o investimento global já ultrapassa um milhão de euros, apesar de continuar muito aquém da média europeia.

Alibaba Leads a Startup Boom in China

Alibaba Leads a Startup Boom in China | Empreendedorismo e Inovação | Scoop.it

Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba is about to go public with a $150 billion valuation. What does that say about startup opportunities in China? Nils Pihl has spent 18 months building what he calls cutting-edge software to crunch "really big data sets." But instead of going to Silicon Valley, the 27-year-old Swede and his four colleagues have been working on his invention from a small apartment overlooking smoggy northwest Beijing. In typical startup fashion, they've raised hundreds of thousands of dollars after countless pitch meetings and were racing to prepare their product for launch. Their investors are in Beijing as well as the U.S.

Are You a Small-Business Owner or an Entrepreneur? The Difference Is Important. | Empreendedorismo e Inovação | Scoop.it
Understanding your role can shape how your business grows and evolves.

It’s National Small Business Week. Hooray! Small businesses are the backbone of this country. They create jobs, come up with new ways of doing old things, and help keep money in the local community. Without small businesses, we’d be in a bigger economic mess.

Among those of us with small businesses, there’s confusion between the terms Small-Business Owner and Entrepreneur. Both can have small businesses, but they have different styles of leadership and thoughts on running their business. One is not better than the other, they’re just different. How do you fit in to these 4 scenarios?

It can take up to 15 years to bring a lifesaving drug to market. Gilead operates at the speed of need.

When you’re bringing life­saving drugs to market almost as fast as you can develop them, you’re going to forget your jacket now and then. Over the past few years, Gilead has ushered through four effective new treatments for HIV alone. In late 2013, the company released a drug called Sovaldi, a breakthrough treatment for hepatitis C, which affects at least 130 million people globally, ravages the liver, and claims up to 500,000 lives annually.

Entrepreneurs with fundraising aspirations may want to take note.

It’s hard to predict what startups Andreessen Horowitz wants to get behind. The venture capital firm—arguably one of the most influential in the tech industry—invests in about 1 out of every 100 deals that come its way, making decisions not based on particular themes or topics, but rather people and ideas. That’s fine and dandy, but it’s not much to work off of for entrepreneurs, all of whom are inclined to believe they’re on the cusp of the next big thing, when they’re raising money.
Pulling back the curtain a bit, partners at Andreessen Horowitz recently revealed 16 trends they’re closely watching. The list is likely to change with time, but it at least provides a snapshot of the firm’s thinking at the start of 2015.

The company has an initial team of four general partners at its European office in London, which the Financial Times reports includes Google Europe exec Eze Vidra, entrepreneur Tom Hulme, angel investor Peter Read, and Code.org UK head Avid Larizadeh. In addition, they are joined by existing Google Ventures partner MG Siegler, who will remain involved with the US arm but serve as a temporary “liaison” to Europe, Google says.

Digital health startups have taken $2.2B in funding so far in 2014, already besting 2013 total (report) | Empreendedorismo e Inovação | Scoop.it

The digital health space has continued to heat up, and it’s looking like 2014 will be a big year for investment in the space.A new Rock Health report says that halfway through 2014 more than $2.2B has been invested in digital health startups. That’s already more than the $1.97 billion invested in the space during all of 2013, and 2013 was a record year for funding in the space.“We’re seeing a lot of tailwinds from healthcare reform,” Rock Health managing director Malay Gandhi told VentureBeat Monday. “Healthcare reform has put a lot of pressure on existing stake holders to reduce costs, and startups in the top categories have a direct effect on those pain points.”The most active venture capital firms in the space were Qualcomm Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz, Bessemer Venture Partners, Emergence Capital, Google Ventures, Matrix Partners, and Venrock.The largest funding deals so far in 2014 include NantHealth ($135 million), Flatiron Health ($130 million), Alignment Healthcare ($125 million), Proteus ($120 million), MedHOK ($78 million), Lumeris ($71 million), Zenefits ($67 million), and Doximity ($54 million).Year over year, the amount invested in digital health startups grew by more than 160 percent, the Rock Health report claims.

O pai emigrara quatro anos antes e achou que era altura de levar a família. De agricultor em Portugal tinha-se transformado em pedreiro e de pedreiro transformou-se em construtor. Jorge da Costa segui-lhe as pisadas e fundou com os irmãos uma empresa de construção de espaços empresariais.

How to Attract (and Keep) Your First 100 Customers | Empreendedorismo e Inovação | Scoop.it

If you're launching a new product, you'll need early adopters and experts to help you shape future versions and spread the word about your brand.

 

So you’ve got a great product that you believe solves a major issue in your chosen niche. That’s great -- but running a successful startup isn’t just about you. The real question is, how do you go about getting others to recognize this value and adopt your proposed solution?

Every young business faces the challenge of acquiring its first users, but before we dive into specific strategies for doing just that, it’s important to remember who these first customers are and what they mean for your company.

 

Very few startups hit the market fully-fleshed out with every feature working perfectly. As a result, your initial launch isn’t generally the best time to try to drive massive growth, whether through paid ad campaigns, referral programs or other common growth hacks.
