Tips for Startups on Raising Old Money and Crowdfunding - SiliconHills

Tips for Startups on Raising Old Money and Crowdfunding - SiliconHills | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

Old real estate and oil money in town invested in San Antonio’s Rackspace early on, said Stephanie Chandler, partner with Jackson-Walker.

It was one of the first cases of old San Antonio money backing a startup technology venture here, she said.

Now with Geekdom, a technology incubator and accelerator in downtown San Antonio, the goal is to get even more local investment into startups, Chandler said.

“Over the last ten years there’s a much more significant uptick in what families are doing,” in investing in startup deals, she said. “Five years ago, we didn’t have the Rackspace founders looking at deals.”

Marc Kneepkens's insight:

Here's a good look at an upcoming startup hub: Austin/San Antonio, and the funding situation for startups there as seen by an insider.

The new opportunities created by crowdfunding and the eagerness of 'old money' to play into new trends and profits. Combine that with the new requirements of equity crowdfunding, and you have a good and informative article.

Interesting read for any startup to see how 'smart money' thinks.

7 Big Facebook Changes You Should Know About for a Better Facebook Strategy

7 Big Facebook Changes You Should Know About for a Better Facebook Strategy | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

Facebook changes so fast, I often miss new features or updates to existing ones. Since there have been a few changes recently, I thought it would be helpful to do a bit of a wrap-up of what Facebook’s been up to.

1. Images are now bigger and wider – Here are the right sizes to use

Some recent changes to how Facebook displays thumbnail images mean that we need to be more aware of the size and aspect ration of any pictures we post. Because Facebook will automatically resize images that don’t match its specifications, we really need to remember these details for our images to look right.

The aspect ratio is very specific: image widths need to be 1.91 times the height. This will mean the image scales perfectly in both the desktop News Feed and on mobile. Images are now larger when shown in the News Feed, so keeping the aspect ratio right will make sure your images look great wherever the user sees them.

Recommended image sizes have also changed for Facebook’s desktop News Feed and mobile views. For the News Feed, Facebook recommends thumbnail images of 400×209 pixels. Images that are smaller than these dimensions will be resized to either 154×154 or 90×90 pixels.

Create a voice people want to hang out with: putting it that way gives an interesting twist to the "be human" social media tip that's constantly thrown around by the gurus. I like the idea of viewing "social engagement" as "hanging out."


Be an active listener: If social media is 25% broadcasting and 75% conversing, it should probably be about 200% listening. If you're doing a good job, people are talking about you. Swooping in and letting them know you heard them is one of the easiest ways to make a customer's day, and isn't that what it ultimately comes down to anyway?


Realize that fans and followers are overrated metrics: I've seen Twitter accounts with a few thousand followers and about three hundred times the engagement of a brand with tens of thousands. Numbers are numbers. They're easy to report, but try explaining the ROI of social without any concrete interaction (hint: it doesn't work!).
