Uber’s New BHAG: UberPool

Uber’s New BHAG: UberPool | Startups et compagnie... | Scoop.it
In their seminal 1994 book Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies, Jim Collins and Jerry Poras coined the term BHAG (pronounced BEE-hag) -- an acronym that stands for “Big Hairy Audacious Goal.” Collins and Porras suggest that the very best companies set an audacious, very long-term goal that shines a light towards “an envisioned future.” BHAGs serve as a rallying cry for the company culture, an ambitious target for the future, and a focusing tool for corporate decision-making.
Alain Rodermann's insight:

uberpool is just one part of the ultimate global solution. no doubt that uber will add additional services including switching from a car pool to a bus then switching to a bike, then to a train... Even if I can afford having my own car and driving alone, i would accept to take a passenger for a short ride, just for contributing to the humanity global effort.

Jeremy Rifkin : “Ce qui a permis le succès inouï du capitalisme va se retourner contre lui”

Jeremy Rifkin : “Ce qui a permis le succès inouï du capitalisme va se retourner contre lui” | Startups et compagnie... | Scoop.it
Pour l’économiste américain Jeremy Rifkin, l’heure de la troisième révolution industrielle a sonné. La société va devoir s’adapter.
Alain Rodermann's insight:

même si je partage son constat sur la mutation de la société, je ne pense pas quant à moi que l'entreprise va être mise à genoux; oui, les entreprises traditionnelles vont être secouées;  des millions d'autres vont cependant être créées, plus petites et plus automatisées. je ne crois pas quant à moi que le partage supprimera l'envie de posséder. les Hommes tireront profit du partage, à l image des propriétaires de voitures qui utilisent blablacar pour rentabiliser leur achat.

Anti-Portfolio | Bessemer Venture Partners

Anti-Portfolio | Bessemer Venture Partners | Startups et compagnie... | Scoop.it
Alain Rodermann's insight:

All of us have built a fantastic anti-portfolio. I have.  Passing on a deal is mainly a question of measure of risk/reward. You can be heavily diluted in capital intensive companies if there is no open window for an IPO. Blockbusters have all benefited from a favorable timing with stock markets. I remember Lastminute.com, one of the few European companies that raised huge money on the LSE in 1999. Wise and experienced VCs are reluctant to bet on the existence of a future bubble on the stock markets.

There's A Lot Less To This Luxembourg Corporate Tax Dodging Story Than They're Making Out There Is

There's A Lot Less To This Luxembourg Corporate Tax Dodging Story Than They're Making Out There Is | Startups et compagnie... | Scoop.it
There's been a huge data dump on how Luxembourg aids corporations in dodging taxes around the world released today. It's turning up in the major newspapers around the world: The New York Times, The Guardian, The Financial Times, Irish Times and so on. However, there's rather less to this story [...]
Alain Rodermann's insight:

an excellent post explaining clearly how tax is finally paid to states. if states don't manage to have corporate tax paid immediately, they finally have tax paid  on capital gains or dividends. Luxemburg provides companies with just a delay and give them more financing power.
