Google Ventures is coming to Europe with a $100 million fund for startups - The Next Web

Google Ventures is coming to Europe with a $100 million fund for startups - The Next Web | Empreendedorismo e Inovação | Scoop.it

Google has confirmed that it is launching a European arm of its Google Ventures VC fund, following media speculation last week. The company’s first European fund is $100 million and it will be used “invest in the best ideas from the best European entrepreneurs, and help them bring those ideas to life”.

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)

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.

Prémio Diáspora, da Cotec, distingue anualmente portugueses no estrangeiro.

As raízes do negócio de Jorge da Costa começaram na geração anterior. O empresário português tinha 12 anos quando, em 1968, chegou à África do Sul. 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. Foi nesta sexta-feira um dos dois emigrantes portugueses que recebeu o Prémio Diáspora, atribuído anualmente pela associação empresarial Cotec.

How to Attract (and Keep) Your First 100 Customers

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.

Plenty to Braga about in Portugal

Plenty to Braga about in Portugal | Empreendedorismo e Inovação | Scoop.it

It's a sleepy, ancient city, but also brimming with a modern, youthful energy. Check out Braga, the loveliest city in Portugal you've never heard of.

Given that Braga has almost four dozen places of worship, it's easy to see why the Baroque city, one of Portugal's oldest, has a reputation as a staid, ecclesiastical destination. Each Easter, pious throngs flock here for the city's Semana Santa, and most visitors who end up in a place that barely registers on the global radar are here to tour the churches on a day trip from Porto, an hour away.

Thanks to a large student population and a steady influx of young Portuguese, Braga has some lively cultural offerings, an eclectic vibe, a mellow – mostly underground – bar scene, and the bonus of outdoor adventure on the doorstep thanks to its close proximity to Peneda-Gerês national park.

“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 | 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.

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.

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?

Here's a look inside a typical VC's pipeline (a must-read for entrepreneurs)

Here's a look inside a typical VC's pipeline (a must-read for entrepreneurs) | Empreendedorismo e Inovação | Scoop.it

Sean Jacobsohn, Emergence Capital:

"While it may seem that one percent represents depressing odds for a founder to secure VC funding, in reality, the process tends to help entrepreneurs refine their strategy.

When I meet with entrepreneurs, I am often asked about the VC “pipeline.”

How many deals do we see? How many meetings? How often do we conduct due diligence? How many of those companies do we invest in?

I thought it would be helpful to provide visibility about the VC pipeline, while also outlining what helps a company move from an intro meeting into a closed investment.

In order to make 10 investments, the average venture capital firm reviews approximately 1,200 companies."

A Multi-Factor Analysis Of Startups | TechCrunch

A Multi-Factor Analysis Of Startups | TechCrunch | Empreendedorismo e Inovação | Scoop.it
Every decision we make from what to wear to whom to hire requires a balance of multiple factors. Sometimes we decide quickly and other times with deliberate consideration. Either way, we do this every day. Picking what to wear, for instance, depends on a number of variables: what we have in the closet, what we’ll be doing that day, what the weather’s like, etc. Often we pick something to wear but later question our judgment. Selecting a startup to invest in isn’t much different. First, we have a number of alternatives, i.e. our deal flow. We don’t have access to all available deals. Second, we have a limited amount of time to decide and we have other constraints, such as how much cash we have, contingencies, terms, existing portfolio and so forth.
