Startups are fun, creative & may be our best hope. This second of a two part Curatti series covers startup trends from digital homes to wearable tech.

Note
No sooner than I finished writing this second post in a 2 part series for http://www.curatti.com Editors of Chaos than one of the featured "Smart Home" startups sold to Google for $3.2B. Amazing.

If that doesn't make you want to fire up a startup and start tinkering nothing will :). M

This 2nd post in a two part series covers more than 25 cool startups from Smart Homes to wearable Tech:

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, February 3, 2014 5:02 PM

Lots of very useful insights in that must-see very detailed slideshare by Steve Schlafman from RRE Ventures.


I wish it described a little more the conditions that a startup need to reach to become interesting for VCs. To build on slides 58-60, I would add:


1. Team: there's little hope in seeing seed VC's with the hope they'll help you complete it.


2. Growth model: traction is cool but mean different things to different people. I'd rather talk about a growth model that explains how the company will grow fast and that is backed by min 8-12 weeks of solid data. 


3. Market ambition: while business plans are mostly useless at seed stage, it's important in my opinion to show there are adressable markets within reach if #2 works well to justify raising from VC's and providing them with a return.

Marc Kneepkens's curator insight, February 4, 2014 4:54 PM

This is a great deck including all the steps of raising seed funding for a startup. It's very detailed, and presented by a venture capitalist. It's the most complete step-by-step guide that you'll find. Of course, guidelines like this are not going to create it for you, but at least, you get some idea of the process and what it involves.
