Faut-il cacher son idée de start-up ? | Startups et compagnie... | Scoop.it
Une idée en elle-même ne vaut pas grand chose, s'accordent à dire investisseurs et entrepreneurs. Ce qui compte, c'est l'exécution.
Alain Rodermann's insight:

En parler autour de soi ne pose pas de problème. par contre pour des projets très technologiques et longs à développer, clamer ses projets sur la toile et en anglais est plutôt déconseillé. j'en ai été le malheureux témoin par le passé avec une concurrence européenne, asiatique et américaine inattendue qui s'est déclarée avant que le produit ne soit terminé.

Pourquoi il ne faut pas créer sa start-up dans la Silicon Valley

Pourquoi il ne faut pas créer sa start-up dans la Silicon Valley | Startups et compagnie... | Scoop.it
Les jeunes pousses percent rarement dans la Silicon Valley. Seules des sociétés françaises déjà matures peuvent espérer s'y développer avec succès.
Alain Rodermann's insight:

il est bon de se poser la question "où vais je creer ma société ?" . Rares sont les entrepreneurs qui ont choisi un autre pays que celui dans lequel ils ont eu l'idée initiale. Certains sont venus d'israel en france, d'autres sont parti de france en angleterre. Une analyse fine s'impose et le résultat est souvent surprenant. Ce qui et clair pour moi maintenant est que lorsqu'on vise l'international, il convient de structurer finement la société, inévitablement à cheval sur plusieurs pays. Le luxembourg est en Europe probablement la meilleure plateforme de tête.

Alain Rodermann's curator insight, August 12, 2013 3:15 AM

Accelerators are doing a great job, but the issue is their business model. With 100 accelerators opened in the last 12 months, the VC industry is facing a kind of dealflow bubble. Most of those "accelerated" startups will not get funded. I remember that in the 90's, accelerators, used to be called incubators, ended up failing. Alain Rodermann

Une synthese des bonnes pratiques mais il y a bien un vingtaine d'astuces et de points de détail qui ne sont pas abordés dans l'article. Ces points de détail font la différence en particulier 1) dans les 2 premiers board meetings après l'arrivée des VCs, 2) quand on a de très mauvaises nouvelles à annoncer. Un CEO laché seul dans l'arène (le board) sans ange gardien a une durée de vie moyenne de 3 ans.
