A Guide to Winning Support for Your New Idea or Project - Harvard Business Review

A Guide to Winning Support for Your New Idea or Project - Harvard Business Review | Startups | Scoop.it
Persistence is key.

You’ve got an idea for something that will improve your company’s bottom line or make it a better place to work. Nice going. Now for the hard part: How do you get people on board? How do you get funding? And what should you do if your idea doesn’t catch on?

What the Experts Say
In an ideal world, you’d come up with a genius new idea, tell your coworkers about it, and they’d immediately grasp its brilliance. Your boss would love it — and you! — and give you the resources you need to execute it. But that’s not reality. “It’s very hard to start a new initiative,” says John Butman, author of Breaking Out: How to Build Influence in a World of Competing Ideas. “It’s hard to get people to listen to your idea, to understand your idea, and to take action.” It may be difficult, but it’s also a vital skill to master. “Organizations need to keep changing, adapting, and innovating,” he says. “If they don’t, they stagnate and disappear.” But it’s not only the success of your company that’s at stake, says Susan Ashford, professor of management and organization at Michigan’s Ross School of Business. The ability to get new initiatives off the ground is also critical to your career. “You want to stand out, be visible, and get noticed as a leader,” she says. “And one of the ways to do this is by suggesting change ideas and implementing them.” Here are some pointers on how to get your idea moving.

Why Venture Capital Investors Should Want to See Your Five Year Financial Proforma - Rockies Venture Club

Why Venture Capital Investors Should Want to See Your Five Year Financial Proforma - Rockies Venture Club | Startups | Scoop.it
A good venture capital proforma should show all years from present through exit to demonstrate your ability to SCALE, justify VALUATION, and plan for EXIT.

Many entrepreneurs and VCs alike are hesitant to produce a proforma for more than two years out into the future.  They claim that it’s impossible to know what will happen and that the third year and beyond are “just numbers.”   While I would agree that nobody expects a startup to perform according to its projections, I am heartily in disagreement with the claim that a five year proforma doesn’t tell us anything.

Marty Koenig's curator insight, February 12, 2014 3:15 PM

Totally agree with Peter. the numbers going out 5 years show the savvy investor that you are:

1. considerate of what they are used to seeing

2. have thought well beyond the possible about how to get there

3. that you believe you can scale and can put that on paper



And the rest of what Peter says about valuation,investor return, and exit strategy prove that you know what you are talking about. 


So many entrepreneurs think it's all about the PRODUCT PRODUCT PRODUCT. Investors don't really care that much about the product. They care about the people they are investing in. and if the people aren't willing to the the energy and thinking into a 5-year projection are they really the type of people a VC wants to invest in? 


This, I know first hand.

New Rules Allow Early Adopters to Become Early Investors

New Rules Allow Early Adopters to Become Early Investors | Startups | Scoop.it
Were you one of the first to identify Uber as a game changer?  What about being one of the first to use Amazon or Google in the early days? If you had..

Were you one of the first to identify Uber as a game changer?  What about being one of the first to use Amazon or Google in the early days?

If you had invested in Uber (now valued at $40B) in 2011, you would currently be sitting on a 600x return. Unfortunately, unless you were already very wealthy, securities laws would have prevented you from being able to invest in the these companies.

Early adopters have historically been prevented from crossing the threshold from customer to investor. However, a fundamental shift in the relationship between consumers and companies has been set in motion by new SEC regulations set to go into effect on June 19th.

Most early adopters interested in supporting private companies have been limited to rewards-based crowdfunding. This type of crowdfunding has proven to be a poor substitute for true early stage investing. Rewards-based crowdfunding websites such as Kickstarter allow individuals to pre-order products or donate towards something that they want to exist in the world. These “backers” do not get shares or equity in the company. Although these backers take on significant risk, they do not get any significant upside.

The story of Oculus VR is apt. Nearly two years after its celebrated rewards-based crowdfunding raise, Oculus was acquired by Facebook for $2B. Oculus’ early Kickstarter backers felt angered and betrayed. Though they had a sense of ownership in the company, they reaped no benefits from the transaction. Meanwhile, the institutional and accredited investors who invested in Oculus after the Kickstarter campaign (and in large part because of the Kickstarter campaign) made a large amount of money in a short period of time. $300 in equity in Oculus at the time of the Kickstarter campaign would have been worth approximately $45,000, a 145x return.

Successful technology startups owe it to their early adopters to let them participate in the company’s financial success.  These are the people who realized the company’s potential before the public and provided the momentum to turn that potential into a reality.

Early adopters are part of the success of a startup and should be rewarded for their input and commitment. This article digests the new opportunities.

Richard Platt's curator insight, June 21, 2015 1:01 PM

Here are some of the key takeaways:

  • EMV cards are being rolled out with an embedded microchip for added security. The microchip carries out real-time risk assessments on a person’s card purchase activity based on the card user’s profile. The chip also generates dynamic cryptograms when the card is inserted into a payment terminal. Because these cryptograms change with every purchase, it makes it difficult for fraudsters to make counterfeit cards that can be used for in-store transactions.
  • To bolster security throughout the payments chain encryption of payments data is being widely implemented. Encryption degrades valuable data by using an algorithm to translate card numbers into new values. This makes it difficult for fraudsters to harvest the payments data for use in future transactions.
  • Point-to-point encryption is the most tightly defined form of payments encryption. In this scheme, sensitive payment data is encrypted from the point of capture at the payments terminal all the way through to the gateway or acquirer. This makes it much more difficult for fraudsters to harvest usable data from transactions in stores and online. 
  • Tokenization increases the security of transactions made online and in stores. Tokenization schemes assign a random value to payment data, making it effectively impossible for hackers to access the sensitive data from the token itself. Tokens are often “multiuse,” meaning merchants don’t have to force consumers to re-enter their payment details. Apple Pay uses an emerging form of tokenization. 
  • 3D Secure is an imperfect answer to user authentication online. One difficulty in fighting online fraud is that it is hard to tell whether the person using card data is actually the cardholder. 3D Secure adds a level of user authentication by requiring the customer to enter a passcode or biometric data in addition to payment data to complete a transaction online. Merchants who implement 3D Secure risk higher shopping-cart abandonment.

Great resource, take advantage of it.

Here are a few more: this information is from SBI/Sitesell, an organization teaching people how to set up their own websites and do it right! They work with the principle of CTPM, which means Content, Traffic, Pre-Sell, Monetize. Tens of thousands of regular people, meaning no IT experts, have set up their sites and chosen their niche. There are many success stories. I for one started a little over a year ago and I have a site now with more than 400 visitors daily! I had no clue how any of this worked before.

Now here is the link to some free e-books that SBI gives away as an introduction. At the same link you see also some ways to try out some of the SBI tools. The links are in part 2, so scroll down a bit and you’ll see a grid with free ebooks. Those have everything you need to learn about copywriting and also marketing online. Incredible resource.

I think this is a great article! Not only is it good for businesses who just decided to jump on the Twitter train, but also for those who have been using Twitter for a while and need a refresher on how to use their feed well. I think my company uses Twitter successfully and is able to engage customers, but there is always room for improvement!

The article gives four strategies for company Twitter use: follow the experts, target people with keywords, tweet regularly and know who you're tweeting to. From my experience, my company is great at all of those, but where we could potentially improve the most is using keywords regularly. We do our best to post fun things so our page is light-hearted and a joy to read, but we could always add keywords to help bring more people to our page. Along with that, retweeting more experts would also improve our page. I will definitely be keeping this article in mind while tweeting from now on!
