European startups: Here are some practical tips for raising capital in the US

European startups: Here are some practical tips for raising capital in the US | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

Founders need investors that offer more than just money: they need ex-entrepreneurs that have experienced exits; they need super connectors that can make deals happen and they need battle hardened veterans that have seen bubbles come and go many times over.

 

The fact is that there are many more people who meet that description in Silicon Valley and having them as partners can make a huge difference. But how do you raise capital in the US? Rather than the vague and oft-repeated advice to “hustle your way to intros” I want to provide specific, practical tips we learnt whilst raising our seed round in the US last year.

Excellent points Nancy!
Peter (PJ) Fulcher-Meredith's curator insight, December 3, 2013 1:06 AM

As Karen said a different way of capturing and curating your business stories.  Anything that helps leaders to categorise and re-use and re-purpose stories the better. Make it easier and leaders will use stories more and more to engage their people. Nice one.

Microsoft Appoints First African Female Country Manager in Ghana | AllAfrica.com

Microsoft Appoints First African Female Country Manager in Ghana | AllAfrica.com | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

Microsoft yesterday announced the appointment of Otema Yirenkyi as the company's first country manager for Ghana.

 

This is even as the company shifts its global focus to a devices and services offering, as Ghana remains one of its critical investment markets in Africa.

 

Otema, a native Ghanaian with over 14 years of ICT experience, will take the helm of its increasing investment in the country.

 

Otema is Microsoft's first female country manager on the African continent and holds a BSc degree in Industrial and Labour Relations, as well as an MA in Development Studies.

 

"We have seen tremendous growth in broadband availability and internet penetration in Ghana, as well as the introduction of newer devices such as tablets and smartphones, which have fundamentally changed how consumers experience and use technology," says Otema.

 

Ghana's current mobile penetration rate is at an estimated 112%, after the country hit the 100% mark at the end of 2012. These numbers are the highest in Africa, placing Ghana 49th in the world, according to the International Telecommunications Union (ITU).

 

"This always-on, always-connected era that we find ourselves in holds new promise for what technology can bring to people's lives and to businesses. And it gives us an opportunity to use our technology, talent, time and money to help create sustainable growth in the country and across the African continent."

J. Mark Schwanz's curator insight, December 3, 2013 9:11 AM

They jury is still out on what schools of the future will consider core knowledge. What is certain is student-centered and relevant learning. More than a simple trend, personalized learning points to better student-teacher relationships and personal knowledge profiles. Technology can do a lot but dialogue and constructivism are here to stay.

Jeroen Boon's curator insight, January 12, 2014 2:34 PM

Connectivism is a learning theory for the digital age. Learning has changed over the last several decades. The theories of behaviourism, cognitivism, and constructivism provide an effect view of learning in many environments. They fall short, however, when learning moves into informal, networked, technology-enabled arena.

VISUAL LITERACY

Peter Evans's curator insight, November 26, 2013 8:47 AM

I'd suggest a lot of the more innovative university programmes are already doing much of what is suggested here. One thing to emphasise is supporting students to use digital tools specifically for learning as they generally already know how to use these tools. In otherwords, while students may often be digitally competent, they are often less digitally literate in terms of learning processes. Also, what refer to PDAs - surely old tech?

Miep Carstensen's curator insight, December 1, 2013 11:14 PM

Sound advice for teachers to incorprate these core competencies in their teaching programmes.

Leaders Who Can’t Forgive

Leaders Who Can’t Forgive | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

Leading others means dealing with a maelstrom of relationships implying an enormous amount of emotional management. As a leader, you are operating in settings rife with strife, which if left unresolved, can become a festering drag on an organization’s effectiveness. People who cannot forgive get stuck into a downward spiral of negativity, taking everyone around them with them.
