The report reviews the shifting online landscape, which has become more social and content rich, with expanded use of photos, video and audio. Looking ahead, the report finds early signs of growth for wearable computing devices, like glasses, connected wrist bands and watches - and the emergence of connected cars, drones and other new platforms.

Startup Therapy: Ten questions to ask yourself every month by @ASmartBear

Startup Therapy: Ten questions to ask yourself every month by @ASmartBear | Tips and feedback for geeky entrepreneurs | Scoop.it

Therapists don’t tell you what to do. Rather, they ask probing questions that get you to discover for yourselfwhat is true for you, your situation, and what you want.

 

You’re smart. You’ll make good decisions. But you also get bogged down in daily minutiae and putting out fires, meanwhile missing the big picture.

 

That’s where this article comes in: To splash cold water on your face, forcing you to face reality and continue to defend or change the important choices inside your business.

 

What follows is your startup therapy session. Having to think through and answer these questions forces you to identify what you need to do today to seek profits and growth.

Building a startup into a successful high-impact company is not easy – it is hard no matter where in the world the founding team may be located or which geography is targeted.

It is even harder in India, despite the macro outlook almost always looking rosy – 1+ billion people, strong economic growth, emerging market/BRIC, technical expertise, many underserved needs etc.

Le VC est-il un poison pour l’entrepreneur? par Pascal Emmanuel Gobry

Le VC est-il un poison pour l’entrepreneur? par Pascal Emmanuel Gobry | Tips and feedback for geeky entrepreneurs | Scoop.it

Le thème du VC échauffe vite les esprits et on se retrouve vite à poser des dogmes, alors que c’est un sujet complexe qui a bien besoin de nuance. Je suis analyste financier concentré sur le monde des startups, j’ai accompagné des startups y compris dans des opérations de financements, et j’ai co-créé aussi bien une boîte financée par investisseurs qu’une boîte bootstrappée, donc c’est un sujet auxquels j’ai pas mal réfléchi.

It's Not Just Apple vs Android - Andy Croll

The whole narrative around tech companies is typically forced into a cookie-cutter narrative. Company X smashes Company Y. Samsung good, Apple bad. Google open, Apple closed. Not true.


The truth is more nuanced than that. At its most basic level we should appreciate it’s not the zero-sum game that the media pretend it is.
