Let us introduce a new rubric — Lifehacks from the Idea Factory’s team! 👏 As you know, our project is a startup as well. Like many of you, we go through a lot of venture challenges and therefore definitely have something to share! Every week, we’ll disclose our own secrets on various startup divisions, from efficient management systems to immaculate design. Our team members will personally teach you the basics of different skills any project needs. You can also ask them any questions to get even more insights of a particular field. 📝 And the first subject we’re going to delve into is copywriting with Vlada. Today I’ll split valuable tips on how to make persuasive texts that can greatly influence people. Actually, many underestimate the importance of copywriting in business viewing it as a minor thing. But trust me — texts possess such a power that can either make people purchase your product or totally discourage them. How does it work? Let me tell you. 1️⃣ Be helpful. Effective copywriting is always centered around some benefit. Whatever you want from your readers, you should always remember they’re interested to do only those things they personally need. Otherwise, what’s the point? Therefore, you should build your texts in not a selling, but a caring way. So instead of aggressively pushing your product, just tell the users how it will make their lives better. Treat them in a sympathetic manner like you feel their problems and want to help. 2️⃣Provide facts. A lot of sellers tend to excessively talk up their solution so it even seems annoying and phony. You can describe your product in the most beautiful words but it still makes no sense until the customers tries it themselves. To be more persuasive, provide statistics, numbers, and real-life cases. Facts are always more sound than words. Consumers are much likelier to believe meaningful brands. For example, "our vacuum cleaner is super powerful" sounds far less convincing than "our vacuum cleaner can work for 24 hours and remove even coarse particles of dirt." 3️⃣Honesty is the best policy. It’s so simple and yet so many companies lie to their customers, which is eventually disclosed. People appreciate those brands that treat them fairly. Even though you might be tempted to embellish some features of your product, don’t do that. There’s no worse customer than a disappointed one. Telling the truth shows that you actually care about your audience. So keep your texts truthful and yet considerate. 4️⃣Choose the right tone of voice. It’s very important to personalize the texts and hence you need to know you’re writing for. Identify your audience and select the respective style. For example, if you’re addressing aged customers, it may be inappropriate to use slang or jokes. But when it comes to youth, such tricks are likely to catch their attention. 5️⃣Keep it short and sweet. Some copywriters prefer to make very long and sophisticated texts in order to sound more intelligent. However, this is a misconception. The simpler, the better. Your task is to convey a message to the reader, not to make them puzzled. To sum up, I would recommend that you reread your texts as there’s often something to improve and make them even more captivating. Hope it helps! Sincerely, Vlada

What Is Market Research? Types, Benefits, and Methods
Came up with a startup idea? That`s great. But before jumping into its implementation, you should thoroughly analyze the market. Without knowing your niche, competitors, and tendencies, your project is likely to fail. It is like searching for a key in the room with no light — you have no idea where to go and what to do. Market research is your flashlight in this darkness that helps you find the right direction. Today we`ll walk you through the fundamentals of market research by disclosing its types, purposes…

#WeeklyContest The First Review on This Week Startups 💫 Hey there! My name is Nikita and I work as a financial analyst researching different markets and evaluating companies. Today I’ll take a closer look at the idea of Boer by Victor Yahaya . Let’s go! Briefly about the idea The author proposes to create a company that will specialize in outsourcing agricultural work of any complexity in Nigeria. General impression The idea looks interesting. It will be able to save non-professional players of the agricultural market of the whole region from high labor costs. However, the implementation will involve a number of pitfalls. ❌Possible difficulties - Technical support. High-quality and large-scale work in the fields means the use of large irrigation systems, fertilization, weed removal and other mandatory procedures for cultivating the land. It is interesting to find out what amount of work and what technical means will be implemented. It is also important to see if Victor’s team will use smart sensor systems, drones, and other effective tools. - Capital intensity. The use of complex systems, as a rule, means high purchase costs and significant initial investments. Therefore, the authors of Boer should pay attention to leasing and other forms of borrowed use of technical systems for their needs. - Competence. Working in fields with different properties and soils involves a significant level of training of farmers and technical specialists. I would like to receive comments from Victor and his colleagues. - Scalability. Boer's business is associated with extensive development: more land is cultivated – more profit is received by the company. Perhaps with the help of free farmers and their equipment, it will be possible to organize a marketplace in which farmers from other regions of Africa will be able to find teams to cultivate their lands. - Seasonality. Soil yields, rainy seasons, droughts and other factors will seriously affect the volume of orders of the company and the total revenue of the company. Therefore, Victor and his colleagues will need to think through a competent system for hedging a variety of natural risks and reducing losses during periods of crop failure. ✅Positive aspects - Outsourcing trend. In the modern world, people value their time more. Therefore, the trend of hiring third-party companies to receive services is a popular direction in business. The idea of Boer, with proper work, can become an excellent trend unicorn. - Clear unit-economy. After determining the list of works, the perimeter of the Victor team's efforts will become clear. From here it will be possible to calculate the projected business model of the company and work on improving the quality and quantity of orders. - Expertise. Boer's business is connected with expertise and a deep understanding of the subtleties of agriculture. However, after building a prepared team, it will be possible to increase the average check for 1 order and accelerate the monetization of the idea. - Solving social problems. Hunger and other pressing problems of different regions of the world still bother our Planet. Victor's idea will help fight world hunger and provide quality products on the African continent. Conclusion The idea seems interesting, but its implementation is associated with solving a number of essential challenges. I really hope Victor will make his way and share his success story soon! 😉

#Books Top 5 Books on Social Skills Mastering 🤝🗣 A successful startup is the result of effective communication between many stakeholders, from investors and partners to mentors and employees. So the way you talk to people chiefly influences your success. To establish meaningful connections with others, you need to hone your social skills. Therefore, we’ve collected a list of perfect reads to boost your communication abilities. 📗How to Speak So People Really Listen: The Straight-Talking Guide to Communicating with Influence and Impact — Paul McGee Knowledge, high IQ, experience — all this is not enough to succeed. You need to be able to convey your ideas and feel confident during difficult conversations. The book puts emphasis on the mistakes that we make when talking to people. In addition, there are loads of interesting stories and as much food for thought so you learn to communicate by concrete examples. 📘Shyness: What It Is, What to Do About It — Philip G. Zimbardo To pitch your ideas well and persuade people to do what you want, you should be bold enough. Shyness is one of the main challenges founders have to constantly overcome on their path to success. The author is a well-known American social psychologist, the founder of the famous Stanford prison experiment. In his books, you will see only a scientific approach and accurate statistics instead of abstract reasoning. Zimbardo views shyness as an individual way of responding to emotions. And in order to cope with your insecurities, he offers a set of specific tips and exercises. 📒How to Talk to Absolutely Anyone: Confident Communication in Every Situation — Mark Rhodes Experiencing tension when talking is natural. The main thing is to be able to get over it. This is exactly what Rhodes writes about — how to deal with fears and barriers, start a conversation, gain confidence, and get rid of the rejection feeling. This is an eye-opening book about the problems of modern communication, providing practical recommendations. 📙Talking to ‘Crazy’: How to Deal with the Irrational and Impossible People in Your Life — Mark Goulston It’s one thing to talk to professionals and another to deal with fools. Sometimes such communication can be truly unbearable. And don't be confused by the title of the book. It addresses a category of people with an irrational and dishonest style of communication. You can't build a meaningful dialogue with them. Mark Goulston, a business psychiatrist in, offers a set of hands-on techniques: 14 ways to communicate with psychos, 8 ways to cope with insanity in personal life and, of course, recommendations for working on ourselves. After all, we also sometimes lose our temper and may act irrationally. 📕Just Listen: Discover the Secret to Getting Through to Absolutely Anyone — Mark Goulston To reach efficient communication, you need not only to talk well, but also to listen. Conversation is not so much the talent to express your thoughts eloquently, as the ability to listen and feel the interlocutor. Everyone likes to be heard and sometimes this is what brings you success. This skill helps people feel more comfortable and confident. The main secret of communication is very simple — when you listen to another person, they will be willing to listen to you. Which book have you read or would like to? Comment below ⬇️

Is there any recipe of success? Many of you must be looking for a key to financial well-being. I have vast entrepreneurial experience full of ups and downs. So let me share with you my secret of success. At some point the belief that there is a recipe of well-being kept me going. I was looking for it in various sources, from books to online blogs. We often learn success stories of startups which have gone through a long period of failure before taking off. It will be safe to say each of you needs your own unique recipe. Do you crave success? “go all-in, as if you had insider information” Are you sure of your idea? “go all-in, as if you had insider information” You’ve got to be ready to go all-in. It makes no sense to start a business if you don’t have courage to do something that might fail. If you don’t do your best, you have no chance of success. The only way to get what you want is to take a quantum leap and go all-in. Go all-in wholeheartedly. Live and breathe your business. Start your business once you are not afraid to lose. Contribute your time, passion and, most importantly, yourself to it. It doesn’t matter if your result was a success, just make sure you have done your best to make it happen. Perfection is never an occasion. If it doesn’t work out, so what? Get up and try again! It is not a sprint, it is a marathon. However, make sure that with every step you are going forward. The courage to go all-in means you are ready to do all it takes to provide your success. If it means you are going to work more hours than you are paid for, let it be so. If you need to make phone calls when you prefer to curl up in bed, let it be so. When it comes to your business don’t invent anything. You’ve got to give it all to get any result. Find your inner fearless player in this game. It is impossible to guarantee each of you that the pitched idea will turn into a billion-dollar company. However, I would assure that in a year many of those who started their journey here will tell their success stories soon. The first ones are already ripening. I have noticed one common thing among those who are certain about their success to come: They have appreciated IdeaFactory as a platform to get a chance to pitch, learn, and progress. Winning $500 is not their ultimate goal. But knowing and believing in the idea, they improve it and present it again making corrections. No one forbids to improve the concept along the way. And the cash prize is just an additional excitement to get better. If you decide to use my recipe, let me warn you: Going all-in at a startup without basic knowledge, feedback, and expert support is like going all-in on the stock exchange making a deal with high leverage without having insider information. Such a strategy is doomed to failure. Idea creation, pitch, feedback, product test drive, and finally MVP. Everything can be done here. That is, if we compare it to an all-in bet again, here you get “insider information”. Many entrepreneurs succeed by speaking to others. You can reach out to like-minded people and share your ideas with them. When you interact with others, it will not only improve your understanding of what you are doing, but it will also give those people the opportunity to help. If you go all-in with a new idea, don't be afraid to ask others for help! The rewards for hard work and commitment are immeasurable. A status, successful startup, good bank account - it all depends on you. But I am sure our Community will make this path much easier for you. Gift 🎁 Hard work always pays off. And that’s what I want to prove with my precious gift. This is the best book I’ve ever read about startups. There is also an attached diary you can keep about your project. Sometimes it's worth reading offline. 🙋🏽‍♂️How to get the prize? Just go to our and make a holistic review on one or several ideas of this week. On Monday 11/07/22 I will consider all the reviews and the best author will get the book. Good luck to everyone! 🍀

Success Principles from Steve Jobs 🌟 ❤️Do what you like Jobs once said, "With passion, people can change their lives for the better." And when asked about the advice he wants to give to aspiring entrepreneurs, Steve replied: "I was accepting a job as a busboy or something like that until I realized what really fascinates me." It is the love for his work and inspiration that chiefly contributed to Apple’s success. Passion is the best fuel of success. Problems always arise, but love helps you keep going whatever happens on your way. 🤲Make your own contribution Jobs believed in the power of the worldview. He once asked John Scully, the formers Pepsi’s president: "Do you want to spend your life selling sugar water or changing the world?". Remember that any startup is committed to bringing benefit to people. And the most helpful projects become the most successful ones as a result. Focusing just on money is a road to nowhere. 🌈Combine different things Jobs was convinced that creativity unites things. He meant that people with extensive life experience see those things that others do not pay attention to. Steve took calligraphy classes from the renowned trappist monk Robert Palladino. It had no practical significance at that time, but established the basic understanding of beauty. Jobs further used them to develop typography and design for the first Macintosh. Later he traveled to Asia and India, studied design features and traditions of hospitality. Try to think out of the box — master the different and create a new one out of it. This is what helped Steve set up a legendary corporation with. 🙅🏽‍♂️Learn to say no Jobs was as proud of what Apple produced as he was of what they gave up. Steve returned to the company in 1997 and within two years reduced the range of devices from 350 to 10. This allowed the company to focus on the best products. You should be able to prioritize things — concentrate your efforts on the important and refuse what you don’t really need. 📜Convey the message Even though you have a brilliant idea, it’s impossible to succeed without being able to pitch it properly. It just doesn’t make sense. Jobs still remains one of the world's best corporate orators. Instead of just giving a presentation, as most people do, he inspired, entertained, educated, and informed in one show. Which principle do you find the wisest one? Comment below ⬇️

Top 4 From-Zero-To-Hero Biographies of Entrepreneurs 🦸🏽‍♂️🌟 To achieve success in the venture world, look up to those who made it. These people succeeded despite all odds, escaping from poverty and hopelessness. No one believed in them. Did they give up? No. And that’s what they got. 📒Career Manager — Lee Iacoca This is a motivational story of a manager who has had more success than he should have. However, hardships and defeats were also enough. One of these black days was July 13, 1978 – he was fired from the president’s post of Ford Motor Company after working for 8 years. The former president was 54 years old, and, seemingly, his career would live out its last days in these gloomy walls of the Ford hangar. However, Iacocca had to put off the burial of the workbook and thoughts about retirement. Full of highs and lows, this biography teaches aspiring entrepreneurs wise lessons about work and provides valuable insights. 📙Business the Rupert Murdoch Way: 10 Secrets of the World’s Greatest Deal Maker — Stuart Crainer This is a detailed career analysis of the largest American businessman, the founder of the media giant News Corporation. The book contains a lot of advice: start earlier, do not stop, establish contacts, stand to the death, ask questions, continue to study, etc. However, it was close attention to detail, rigidity, and constant control that made Murdoch the "world minister of Communications", who is not so much loved as feared and respected. 📘Business the Bill Gates Way: 10 Secrets of the World's Richest Business Leader — Des Dearlove Being one of the main IT legends and business icons, Bill Gates definitely has a lot to learn. From establishing the greatest PC corporation to becoming the richest person on earth, he managed to achieve what seemed unachievable. The author is the co-founder of the consulting company Suntop Media. Des traces the path of Gates' personal and career development, trying to see how he succeeded to create a computer empire named after himself. The book explores the Gates phenomenon, business philosophy, unshakable principles of work, and relationships with people. In addition, the author investigated ten secret rules that guide Gates in the management of the company. 📕Matsushita Leadership — John Kotter Outwardly, Konosuke Matsushita does not look like a leader. He was not a charismatic handsome man. He had a weak voice and did not know how to speak. He didn't have much charm. The sense of humor was also questionable. At the same time, Konosuke had so many challenges that an ordinary person would have turned into a loser with chronic depression. How did this man manage to create the world's largest Matsushita Electric corporation and earn billions? Cotter's book is committed to addressing this phenomenon and showing there’s nothing impossible in this world. Which book have you read or would like to? Comment below ⬇️

#WeeklyContest New Review on This Week Ideas from Our Financial Analyst 🙌 This time, let’s delve into the idea of Encob by Shishir Singhal ! Briefly about the idea Creating an international online platform for the development of startups and assistance to entrepreneurs. General perception The idea looks interesting and useful for the development of the business community. However, it is difficult to understand the distinctive features of this particular idea from the description. ❌Possible difficulties - The essence. From the description of the idea, it is difficult to understand how exactly the platform will help startups. Usually, a business needs help in the technical development of a prototype and marketing strategy, getting early customers, etc. Therefore, Encob should reflect how it can be useful to startups, what they can take from it: a specific service or expertise. - Uniqueness. As mentioned above, the presentation of the idea does not show any "chips" that would distinguish it from a wide range of other platforms and organizations. Big accelerators, small angel programs and other institutions are working to help ideas and first prototypes. After all, this is what the Idea Factory is doing. So we advise the author to think better about the unique value proposition. - Monetization. One of the key issues of creating accelerators and helper platforms is monetization and self-sufficiency. It is interesting to hear from Shishir and his colleagues the mechanism of making money with his idea. Maybe it will be an advertising mechanism, ownership of a stake in a startup, or another option. - The blurred horizon of success. The implementation of an idea is significantly delayed in time. The statistics of successful startups that have gone from the idea to the first sale are very small. Therefore, the platform will have great risks, including reputational ones, not to meet the initial plans and expectations of aspiring entrepreneurs. ✅Positive aspects - Community. The creation of such a platform will involve uniting creative and intelligent people around the idea. Often a mixture of energy and ideas gives big projects and new unicorns. Therefore, potentially Encob, with the necessary filing and marketing, can become the foundation for a large fruitful community. - Social context. Working on a changing project implies constant processing of different ideas. Various pros will gather around bright ideas, and entrepreneurs will hone their solutions on the real public. This way new jobs will be created, the landscape of the surrounding world will change, and in general, the platform will become the engine of the business community. - Scalability. We talk a lot about the advantages of online tools when building a business. Internet solutions allow you to quickly declare yourself and attract a relatively large number of supporters in a short time. Thus, the platform will be able to grow quickly with proper elaboration of the essence of the idea and development of the marketing part. Conclusion The idea seems interesting, but its implementation is associated with solving a number of marketing and substantive challenges. We wish Shishir great success on his journey! 💪🏼✨

#BusinessEducation How to Assess Startup Ideas? 💡📝 Last week, we taught you how to generate ideas. Now it’s time to asses them! Before rushing into implementing, it’s important to make sure the project is worth undertaking. To help you make a smart decision, we’ll provide you with tools and techniques for a holistic idea analysis. Check it out 👉
How to Assess Startup Ideas?
An idea is the heart of your startup that primarily determines its well-being. If you come up with a brilliant concept, your project is bound to succeed. If not, it is doomed to failure. Check out how to generate offbeat startup ideas in our previous article. As soon as you find the idea, don`t jump into its implementation right away.

#WeeklyContest The Second Feedback on This Week Ideas ✌🏼✨ Today we’ll take a closer look at the Earn While Traveling startup by Macaulay Godstime! Overall Impression The idea is creating a space for travelers where they would earn money by delivering different kinds of staff during their trip. We find this concept interesting in terms of attractive interaction with users. It makes us understand what the business will be like and how the founder will attract users to the platform. Video-Pitch The quality is not the best, however we can see the speaker and listen to him well - and that is important. The speaker has a good pronunciation and presented the idea clearly. Nevertheless, we would advise you to ‘play with camera position’, so you can change the angle of video recording and find a suitable place with good lighting, which is not too dark or light. Another point to notice is the sound, which is good but is followed by some background noise. ✅Advantages Originality. The combination of traveling and earning money creates such a financial balance that may help those who travel for the first time on a tight budget. They could compensate their finances by working and traveling at the same time. Attraction. The platform has every chance to attract plenty of travelers and people, making the whole process useful not only in a cultural aspect, but also in a financial one. Sponsorship. Many tourism companies may become interested in investing in this platform to encourage its customers use their services. ❌Disadvantages Revenue Model. Unfortunately, we have not heard about the revenue model, so the question of how this platform would generate money is open. Competitiveness. There is a stiff competition on this market. For example, Work and Travel provides its customers with the same services as this startup. However, the idea has all chances to succeed for its accessibility and comfortability, but do not ignore your competitors and regularly improve your project. Market Potential This startup is unique since it meets the needs of both traveling and earning. We forecast success to this startup on the market of global tourism, especially after the danger of pandemic will decrease. Nowadays the tourist market is suffering from the world crisis, but this is the best time to start working on your idea and implement it. Good luck Macaulay Godstime! 💚

#CEO Today let’s talk about a simple, universal recipe for success — the law of large numbers. Growing up in Europe, this was an important idea that we often talked about in university and business. While this law doesn’t offer overnight success, it is the secret to guaranteed success. Ultimately, it is all about trying, and trying again. Let's look at some examples of how it works. Imagine an insurance agent. He earns a commission and is only paid when a client signs a contract. It’s December, which is a good month for sales, but he’s worried about January. No one buys anything next month so he’s got to make all of his sales before Christmas or he’s in trouble. He could panic every day and worry, or he could take a calculated approach. What is the solution? The law of large numbers. The trick is knowing the conversion rate. Let’s say that, on average, he needs to have five meetings to make one sale. If he has 15 meetings, he’ll make three sales. If needs six sales to get through the month, he needs to schedule 30 meetings. He doesn’t need to wish and dream. He simply needs to keep preparing and showing up at these meetings and showing his very best ideas. My Story I know the law of numbers works because it has worked for me many times. Back in 2013, I started talking to a guy sitting next to me on a plane. I told him about my business idea. He told me he wasn’t interested. He introduced me to his friend and that guy wasn’t interested either. They both told a few more people and nobody was interested. Sad story? Nope. Finally, my idea was presented to a 7th person and he loved it. He became the best partner I’ve ever had. Sure, my idea failed many times. However, within three months, I found the person who loved my business and was ready to go all in. So, what does this have to do with you? A startup in search of partners and investors has the same basic mission as a salesman and can use law of large numbers the same way. Sure, it’s hard to work out the conversion here since it's not a direct sale but there is another metric: feedback. Success in startups is all about hearing from investors. Let’s say you’ve presented a business idea to 10 potential investors. Three of them want to meet again. With a second meeting, your chances of getting funding are much higher. The more repeat meetings, the faster you will find an investor. In startups, the law of large numbers is a recipe that always works. For each entrepreneur, the math is different but it’s always there. Best of all, if you are passionate about your idea, it will get better with each meeting. The more you practise for those meetings, the better your ideas will become. You are never wasting your time. And, of course, venture capital market investors will sense your dedication. Out of 10 startups, one will see profits. That sounds like a low number but it’s important to remember that getting quick cash isn’t everything. You might find that an investor doesn’t want to buy your idea BUT does want a partnership. This investor sees your potential and dedication and wants to get involved. This is a major success. Idea Factory You sent a pitch, received feedback, but did not reach the final. You KNOW your idea is good, so what do you do? Make a new pitch. If you’re confident in your idea, your pitch wasn't convincing enough. A pitch can and should be improved along the way. Record a new video and try again. Are people still telling you the idea won’t work? Listen up! Try a new idea. No one says you are stuck with one idea for your whole life. Keep improving and presenting it until it works. Remember, it’s a number’s game. A certain number of pitches win and yours will win if you keep making it better every time. Keep faith in your success and one day it will definitely happen.

Netflix: How to Become the Leader in Streaming Services 📺🍿 Background Mark Randolph and Reed Hastings founded Netflix in 1997. Interestingly, they were not amateurs in matters of IT business. Just in 1997, Pure Software, founded by Reed, was sold for 700 million US dollars. And Randolph was one of its leading specialists. The idea of the small service was simply brilliant — CD rental with delivery directly to customers’ home by post. This way entrepreneurs wanted to make money on consumers’ laziness. At the time of launch, the price of the service amounted to $4, and the delivery cost $2. The idea was risky, because the only guarantee of the return of the discs was a restriction for those who already had CDs in their hands. Surprisingly, at the beginning of 2003, the number of customers exceeded a million and the company generated $6,5 million in revenue. In 2005 the amount of users hit 4,5 million. The reasons that forced Mark Randolph to leave the business and sell his stake in it still remain undisclosed. None of the entrepreneurs have commented on the reason for his departure. Since 2007, Netflix has started distributing streaming videos. Thanks to this step, the organization quickly became one of the largest in the world. However, if Hastings had given priority exclusively to DVDs, he would have gone bankrupt. Success Secret The success of one of the most popular multimedia services in the world is largely due to the study of user needs. Netflix never introduces any changes without first asking for the audience’s opinion. The company not only carefully analyzes the actions of competitors, but also produces its own content, from movies to TV series. In 2014, the statistics of visits reached the historic high of 50 million, which made Netflix the greatest multimedia provider on earth. What do you think helped Netflix succeed? Comment below ⬇️

#Expertise The First Review on This Week Ideas 📋💡 We’ll start our analysis with the startup The Draftsman by Môm Michael Chia . 🤔What is the idea about? ‘The Draftsman’ solves the issue of complex legal procedures, making the process of drafting documents automated. The founder wants to present a special tool in order to simplify drafting documents, where all necessary templates and examples would be provided. 📹Pitch review The entrepreneur wore a suit in order to attract viewers - and this is a good method! Even without watching the pitch, you already know that something is going to be presented officially and the founder takes his idea seriously. In less than a minute Michael explained the concept easily and clearly. We got all basic points, however the pitch lacks revenue model info and a more elaborated explanation of the tool itself. 👥Competitiveness Providing research, we found a lot of software tools to automate legal procedure, so we need know what way ‘The Draftsman’ differs from them. There are plenty of companies in this sphere, so the founder is not the first one who wants to launch such a project. If we see the features, which shows uniqueness, we would see why this startup should be noticed. You also need it to attract investors who want to understand why they should invest in your startup. ✅Advantages Simplicity. Users are lazy most of the time or do not have enough tools to handle documents, so automated drafting would simplify and accelerate these procedures. Demand. If we speak about businesspeople, they always deal with documents. So this is one of the target audience segments. ❌Disadvantages Lack of understanding. When you present your idea publicly, the most important thing is to mention how you will implement the idea. In the pitch this aspect was not fully covered, that is why viewers may not believe in the idea. Please, keep attention to it to make your project more trustworthy. Uniqueness. As we said above, some unique features were not provided. It may cause troubles at the start, because investors and the audience would not recognize why this idea should be implemented. 📈Market Potential Overall, we find this idea promising in the venture world, where legal procedures are one of the most significant aspects to make the project work. Point out your unique features, explain the tool you would use in your project - and people will definitely become interested in ‘The Draftsman’. We wish you good luck and hope you implement your startup soon! 💪🏼🌟

Weekly Digest: New Unicorns, Deals, and Acquisitions 💸💎 Cybersecurity Startup from Israel Became a New Unicorn 🦄 📲 According to Reuters, Perimeter 81 made a leap in its valuation compared to the previous round in August 2020, when it was valued at $200 million. In the latest series C funding led by B Capital, the startup has scored $100 million which increased its valuation up to $1 billion and made it a new unicorn. The total of raised investments is $165 million. ION Crossover Ventures and Insight Partners also participated in the round. Perimeter 81 offers secure network solutions on its cloud platform. The four-year-old company, which is not yet profitable, claims it has more than doubled its annual regular revenue compared to last year and is on track to generate tens of millions of dollars this year. The new capital will be invested in product development to help the company provide one-size-fits-all solutions for corporate network security. The Tel Aviv-headquartered company, which initially focused on medium-sized enterprises with fewer than 5,000 employees, has quickly become a leading player in offering zero-trust network access. The reason is companies are investing more to meet the demands of remote work during the pandemic, as traditional security devices such as local firewalls become less relevant. Perimeter 81 now has offices in New York and Los Angeles. The company claims to serve about 2,400 global customers from various industries, including IT company Ingram Micro and telemedicine firm Hims & Hers, with more than half of its revenue coming from the United States. British Startup Netomnia Raised $386M 🪄🇬🇧 The startup of the fiber optic network Netomnia Ltd raised $385 million in the round led by DigitalBridge Investment Management. According to the startup's founder and CEO Jeremy Chelo, additional funding came from previous investors Soho Square Capital LLP and Advencap Ltd, bringing Netomnia's total funding to £418 million, including £73 million of debt. Jeremy Chelo has experience in fundraising for fiber-optic startups. Previously, he led the development of the London-based network startup Community Fiber. In 2020 it was sold to the private investment company Warburg Pincus LLC and DTCP, the venture arm of Deutsche Telekom AG. The co-founder of Chelot and Community Fiber, Callum Dick, used the money from this deal to launch Netomnia, as well as the new Internet provider YouFibre. He says that Chelo is aimed to build fiber optic lines to a million homes across the UK over the next two years in a number of areas. "The goal is simple: Netomnia wants to become the third national operator in the UK," Chelo said in an interview. This will mean competition with the dominant British network company, the former state monopoly BT Group Plc". Warren Buffet’s Company Acquires Alleghany for $11,6B 💰🧾 The acquisition will strengthen Berkshire's position in the insurance business, which Warren Buffett called one of the "four giants" of his company, bringing most of its value. Warren Buffett is sure that Berkshire will be the perfect permanent home for Alleghany. He believes that for 85 years, the Kirby family has created a business that is in many ways similar to Berkshire Hathaway. The deal is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2022. Although it was unanimously approved by the boards of directors of both companies, it is subject to approval by Alleghany shareholders and various regulatory authorities. In addition, Alleghany now has a 25-day period during which the company can look for a better deal with another potential buyer. The main activity of Alleghany is reinsurance and insurance of property and accidents. Alleghany's property and accident insurance subsidiaries include Transatlantic Holdings, Inc. (TransRe), a leading global reinsurance company; RSUI Group, Inc. and Capspeciality, Inc., an underwriter of special accident insurance and sureties.

#WeeklyContest The last review of this week startups 🙌 Our financial analyst Nikita looked into the idea of Dispatch Cruise by Sanyaolu Ibrahim Disclaimer: The idea is written in a quite confusing language, and the video does not provide a deeper understanding. Therefore, this analysis is based the overall understanding of the dispatch cruise. Briefly about the idea Ibrahim and his team propose to create a software platform that will speed up the delivery of goods in Nigeria by attracting private carriers or large courier companies. General impression Although the concept is difficult to catch, it looks promising and accelerates the development of entire regions with proper positioning and promotion. ❌Possible difficulties 1. Maintaining quality. The self-organization of private carriers can lead to the fact that the level of delivery and customer service will suffer. The different level of training of drivers casts doubt on the high quality of such service. The ability of a courier to deliver an order quickly and efficiently, the ability to politely and correctly negotiate with a client is the key to business success. Therefore, Dispatch Cruise suggests developing a quality standard, as well as actively developing social networks where businesses can clearly communicate their ideas and values. 2. Why you are needed. The main problem for this idea is the rationale for why Dispatch Cruise is necessary for business in Nigeria. A proven history of high-quality deliveries, a large set of regular customers, a transparent courier control system — all this creates the basis for organizing potential customers around the idea, as well as for future scaling to other regions of the world. 3. Pricing in the delivery market. Ibrahim and his team say that the service will be able to arrange delivery for business by private delivery companies as well as large companies. However, the question arises how small taxis will be able to compete with large businesses on prices. I would like to know more about the pricing system for one delivery. 4. Specific cargo. Private carriers are not able to deliver large shipments to cold storage or fulfill other complex orders. I would also like to know how Dispatch Cruise handles such market demands and how it approaches solving special cases. ✅Positive aspects 1. Convenience. Creating a unified system for business that will allow you to deliver goods to any point quickly and without problems is the basis of a comfortable life in any country. Thus, Dispatch Cruise participates in improving the life of an entire country, and the convenience of the service is potentially the hallmark of the idea. 2. Scalability. If you prepare the "shell" of the business and make it more understandable to the outside world, you can easily scale the idea with additional investments in other countries of the continent. We believe that the format of the online platform is the most convenient for such an idea. 3. Loyal audience. Dispatch Cruise potentially works with the most solvent agents in their country. Thus, winning their loyalty will be a great advantage for the business in the future. It will be possible to test various other ideas and ideas on such an audience, which will fruitfully affect the development of the whole idea as a whole. Conclusion The idea seems interesting, but its implementation is associated with solving a number of marketing and content tasks. We wish Sanyaol Ibrahim great success on his way! 😉

Therefore, we’ve collected 5 great reads to help you: 📒Procrastination: First Aid — Tanya van Essen and Henri Schouwenburg A tendency to put things off is not always procrastination.

Keller and Jay Papasan To achieve great success, you need to be able to separate the wheat from the chaff. Keller and Papasan teach to prioritize things, debunk myths around of our willpower, and encourage us to take responsibility for our lives into our own hands. The authors of "The One Thing" not only instruct the reader, but also prevent them from the main thieves of productivity, among which, by the way, there is no procrastination. 📘Making Work Visible: Exposing Time Theft to Optimize Work & Flow — Dominica DeGrandis The author is one of the world's leading Kanban experts. She believes that the productivity of work can be increased with the help of visualization techniques. In her book, she tells us how to identify the main time thieves, optimize the workflow, and influence the decision of the authorities.

5 Simple Tips for Startup Beginners 📝📌 🏃🏽Just do it Even having a brilliant idea combined with a deep understanding of the subject, many people never start their own business. Or they give up what they started halfway. Often the reason is excessive slowness, fear of leaving a familiar and stable job, or just mere laziness. If you have generated a great idea that is going to work – gain strength and take the plunge. Yes, making a life-changing decision is harder than sticking to a usual strategy. But it's worth it. 🤝Make partnerships One of the common stereotypes around entrepreneurship is that the business owner is a "lone wolf" who copes with all the problems on their own. But the reality is far from this. You cannot be an expert in everything, and sometimes it is your co-founder who makes the idea happen. If your partner is as interested in the common cause as you are, they can make a significant contribution to achieve your goals. 🧘🏽Stay focused It seems obvious, but sometimes it's easier said than done. You’re likely to be tempted to take up a dozen new activities at once. But to succeed, you need to concentrate on one single thing. It is impossible to sell laptops and laundry detergent equally well. There are many reasons why entrepreneurs give up — they tend to look at how far they still have to go, instead of focusing on how much they’ve gone through. A series of small wins can eventually lead to great success. 🙌Do what you know. And know what you are doing You should not start any business just because it promises profit. Instead, you need to do what you personally like. Otherwise, the first difficulties will make you give it up. A business built around your strengths and abilities will have a better chance of success. It is important not only to create a profitable business, but also to be happy in the process of its management and enjoy its growth day by day. ❌Don't be afraid to make a mistake After all, only those who do nothing are not mistaken. You will never know what the result of your efforts will be until you do what you have planned. And it's usually scary only at the very beginning. Excuses are much easier to find than motivation to act. But, as experience shows, people usually regret the lost opportunities, not the mistakes made. Moreover, the willingness to take risks is a necessary trait for an entrepreneur. Which tip do you find the most valuable? What advice would you give novice entrepreneurs? Comment below ⬇️

#Expertise Fresh review of this week ideas from our financial analyst 🙌 Today we’re going to analyze the idea of Sonar by Temibiyi ! Briefly about the idea The creation of technologies based on a sonar mechanism that will reduce the number of plane crashes among helicopter equipment. General impression The idea looks interesting and progressive, but niche-limited. Therefore, you will need to think about drawing attention to it. ❌Possible difficulties 1. Causes of disasters. Internet sources say that helicopter crashes and other accidents of this kind of lethal vehicles because of poor visibility are not the main causes. Among the main "culprits" of disasters are the poor training of the helicopter crew, technical malfunctions and obsolescence of equipment, loss of control and others. Moreover, technical experts warn that most of the disasters associated with the deterioration of meteorological conditions could have been avoided if the pilot had decided to cancel the flight. We suggest that the authors of the idea think through the marketing issue more deeply so that sonars are in demand from aircraft design bureaus around the world. 2. Existing devices. Now, many modern helicopters are equipped with autopilots and other systems for automatic terrain assessment and positioning of the helicopter in space. The authors of I.Sonar will need to think about how their device will fundamentally differ from existing mechanisms. 3. The narrowness of the market. The development of technologies for helicopters can become a capital-intensive idea. However, its monetization will be difficult due to the narrowness of the solution being developed. Temibiyi and his team are invited to develop a preliminary development plan and, probably, use the available developments of other designers to reduce the cost of creating their own device. This way it will be possible to achieve the payback of the project and the overall profitability of the idea. ✅Positive aspects 1. Relevance. The global helicopter industry is still receiving sad reports of new crashes due to poor visibility. Therefore, Temibiyi's solution will be able to help reduce the number of victims and make helicopter transport safer and more convenient. 2. The ability to create your own autopilot. The development and creation of a sonar-based device will help Temibiyi and his team create a whole complex of devices and sensors that can be combined into a complete autopilot. With proper positioning and lobbying in the future, I.Sonar will be able to become part of helicopter factories. Conclusion The idea seems interesting, but its implementation is connected with the search for cheap solutions for research, improvements and other processes in the development of I.Sonar and a verified marketing campaign. We wish Temibiyi great success on his venture path! ⭐️

#WeeklyContest Here is another feedback on this week ideas 💡 Today we’ll give an insight into Socio Ritwik Dimri . What is the idea about? ‘Socio’ is described as a metaverse of social media. We should mention that it would be better if you provide a broader explanation of the idea, so that we have a more detailed picture. Pitch quality In the video we can see Ritwik himself. However, due to his movements, it is a bit difficult to focus on the information provided. It shows that the startupper is nervous, which is a common thing, while pitching. We would advise Ritwik and other startuppers to practice speaking in front of the camera, so you can cope with the stress. The idea was almost clear but we haven’t received the following information: who the target audience is, how this idea would generate profit and what tools you will use to implement it. Competitiveness Metaverse is a trend nowadays, so a great deal of companies start restructurizing their products to meta and conquering this industry. Despite the strong players, like META (Facebook) and Microsoft, there are a lot of startups, which try to catch the attention of investors. Socio is considered to be one of them, however it lacks some unique features, which would differentiate it from other startups. Probably, you should rethink the idea to have an advantage on the market. ✅Advantages The industry, where Ritwik is planning to develop his startup, is highly popular. It may bring him additional ‘boost’ to find cofounders, team and tools to implement this idea. ❌Disadvantages Implementation. Unfortunately, we have not heard how Ritwik will implement this idea and if it is possible. If Ritwik explains his strategy, we might change our perspective. But meanwhile we do not have enough information, which may show the potential of this idea. Revenue model. The startupper did not mention the ways he would generate profit. If it has not been done yet, you should definitely think about the model. Pitching and Information. We would like to point out that pitching is highly important to attract viewers and make them believe in your idea. Try to practice more to provide all necessary information confidently. Market Potential: Since there was not enough information about this startup, we cannot state how promising this idea is. Theoretically, Socio may become a breakthrough as one of first social media, based upon MetaVerse. But currently we find it as common as other startups in this industry. Nevertheless, we wish Ritwik good luck and motivation to keep working on his idea! Hope our critique helps your project become another star ⭐️

#StartupHunters The second review of this week startups 🙌 Today our financial analyst Nikita is going to delve into the idea of an Energizer by Hemang. Briefly about the idea The author suggests creating a device that will turn off all electrical appliances in the absence of a person in the house / apartment. Overall impression The idea from Hemang is very interesting, as the gadget will solve the problem of saving electricity, and also help avoid domestic disasters. However, like any idea, smart gadgets have their limitations. ❌Possible difficulties of the idea 1. Uniqueness. At the moment, smart homes have gadgets that can be turned off or on using a tablet/smartphone. They also know how to save electricity by adjusting the mains voltage and choosing the optimal value for electricity consumption. Therefore, the author will need to think through the functionality in order to be better and "smarter" than modern competitors. 2. Features of the work. It is not always good for apartment/house owners to turn off some electrical appliances while they are not at home. For example, various slow cookers and other kitchen appliances are very convenient if they do everything for the owner during their absence from home.There may also be pets in the house or apartment that will mislead the sensors. The authors should think over and simulate each situation in detail so that the devices are as convenient and useful as possible. 3. Monetization. The issue of sales of intelligent sensors is a conceptual task. Will the sensor be sold in partnership with other smart home components or will it be part of an independent system? Will the device be provided for free, but use a subscription system? How expensive will it cost to manufacture and promote the device? All these issues should promote the authors of intelligent sensors in the direction of marketing and monetization. ✅Positive aspects 1. Innovation. Intelligent systems allow people to save time and effort, and also make their lives safe. Therefore, such systems will be in great demand, and an affordable price will allow you to quickly distribute devices around the world. 2. Focus on the paying customer. Modern realities show that mostly wealthy people can pay for "convenient" solutions. Therefore, the primary demand, if properly presented, can be provided by the middle class and wealthy people. This will allow the project to develop and improve its own product without attracting additional funds. 3. Participation in the environmental agenda. Saving electricity and reducing the number of domestic disasters will directly affect the ecology of entire regions and, ultimately, the whole world. Therefore, Hemang and his idea will become an important part of the environmental agenda and the fight against the irrational use of renewable natural resources. 4. Scalability. The development of devices that save electricity will allow the authors to create their own galaxy of smart devices and scale their engineering ideas. Conclusion The idea seems extremely interesting, but its implementation is connected with the refinement and formation of a mechanism for working, as well as with the definition of a marketing company. We wish Hemang great success on his venture path! 🔥

#WeeklyContest The first review of this week ideas 🙌 We’ll start our analysis with the idea WaveX by Akinpelu Victor . What is the idea about? WaveX is a gaming system that can vitalize your own character. This system allows young creators to build their own avatar, locations with the help of coding, pictures, or even a scan of their actions. Pitch quality We should notice an excellent sound, since during the whole pitch we hear Victor
s voice without a hitch. That helps us better focus on the information provided. The idea
s concept was presented on the high level without extra words so the idea is easy to get. Nevertheless, you should try to gather more information in your pitch, relating to revenue streams and market you are focusing on. Despite this, there must be an accurate pronunciation, so try to bring information slower and yet cover all the points in about 1 minute. Overall, you have successfully explained what your idea is and who will definitely use it in the future. Competitiveness There are plenty of games, which are focused on creating your own heroes, providing you sandboxes for this. However, Victor mentioned the use of codes and scan, which differentiate this idea from most others. Probably, Victor should pay attention to apps which create avatars and games, which create heroes for the game. Based upon this research, it would be much easier to elaborate unique features and find your strong point on the market. ✅Advantages WaveX would be chosen by both gamers, designers, and artists. This system may become widespread in various spheres, like gaming, fashion, design, etc. The idea shows common ways of generating revenue and leaves many options to add new models for gaining finances. In addition, the startup is good enough for children to develop their creativity, so the social impact is quite high. ❌Disadvantages Technical issues. If we understand the idea correctly, Victor would like to provide codes so consumers use codes to develop their avatars and other objects in WaveX. If so, it might be difficult for the audience to use coding, which may probably decrease the interest in the idea. There must be some guides for users to make the process as easier as possible. Market Potential Since we consider the idea one of a few on this market, we find it promising, but difficult to implement. However, Victor should be fast and accurate in the development of WaveX in order to become one of the major players. If you are highly acknowledged in this industry and manage to gather a good team - you have all chances to make it. We wish you to keep your passion during this challenging journey! 🧡

Zano: How Instant Success May Lead You to Failure 📉👎 The startup produced compact self-driving drones that could take pictures and videos from the air. It was so small that could be placed on the one’s palm. The drone automatically tracked the location of its owner and followed them. Zano promised customers that the device would be able to work for up to 15 minutes on a single charge. To launch the serial production, the founders published the idea of Zano on the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter. They needed to validate the demand and raise the minimum of $190,000. Surprisingly, the project achieved a resounding success — in just one day Zano raised over $1 million. Overall amount reached the historic high of $3,5 million which proved that people believed in the idea of cutting-edge drones. The company guaranteed to deliver all orders in June 2015 — six months after the end of the crowdfunding campaign. Later, Zano was presented at the international exhibition CES among the best technologies of the year. The startup kept customers informed of how the drones development was going. They told Kickstarter users about the materials that had arrived, shot videos in laboratories and factories. Seemingly, everything was going like clockwork. In the first half of 2015, Zano began to have delays in the shipping of key parts and couldn’t deliver drones to customers on time. As soon as buyers received their orders, they were strongly dissatisfied — Zano could barely fly, stayed in the air for only a few minutes, was not able to overcome obstacles, etc. In mid-November 2015, the project management announced the bankruptcy of the company. It became clear that the team not only spent all the proceeds on Kickstarter, but also owed creditors $1,5 million. ❌Failure Cause The quick success made Zano literally overloaded with orders, which it failed to serve physically, technically, and psychologically in a high-quality and timely manner. Such a rapid growth caused panic in the development team. Instead of starting with small test batches, gradually expanding production with an emphasis on quality and testing, Zano started mass production of the raw product. Despite the loss of control over the situation, the management hid the true state of affairs from subordinates and partners. So the two leading developers had no idea how close the project was to failure. What do you think was the failure cause? Comment below ⬇️

5 Tips When Looking for an Investor💰📌 Raising funds for an early project is easier said than done. Here you need to set up an effective communication with investors and be good at persuading. How to do it? Take advantage of the following strategies: 📝Make a list of investors Think of potential investors and highlight those who actively put money at your startup’s stage or are focused on the industries you’re engaged in. Pay also attention to the investors who have lately launched their own funds or just started business angels activities. List all them in an excel-table to keep it visual and build up a fundraising strategy. 🤝Create an intro funnel The most efficient way is to find a close acquaintance who could introduce you to the target investor. However, in most cases people don’t have great networking opportunities. Set a deadline for looking for those through which you could meet the investor you need. Try to build meaningful connections and get acquired with right people. Establish a smart outreach of investors to increase your chances. 🏋🏽Practice Don’t rush into talking to the most desired investors. We don’t have any doubts you know your startup inside out, but only practice makes perfect. Talk to 2-3 investors who are not so important for you. If everything goes well, you will have follow-on investors or just a backup. If you fail, it’s still a valuable experience. 🤔Put yourself in the VC's shoes It is important to understand that in 80% of cases, venture funds don’t have a KPI to make a deal or a certain number of transactions. Their aim is to invest capital within five years, so they have time to think. For VC, it is better not to make a good deal than to make a bad one: unlike you, they are in no hurry. 📊Allocate resources and remember the stats A Docsend study says that in order to raise $500-560 thousand on pre-seed, you need on average: ⁃ to contact 58 investors; ⁃ to show an 18-slide presentation; ⁃ to hold 30 meetings; ⁃ to spend 15.5 weeks on all this (3.5 months, for 60% of projects — up to 12 weeks). It is supposed take from three to six months to raise funds, and you will have to do this almost full time. It is important to be ready for this yourself and prepare the rest of the team, which will have to partially adopt the tasks. Remember that any entrepreneur receives dozens of rejections and venture funds frequently mistake. Which tip do you find the most helpful? Comment below ⬇️

Weekly digest: Global Venture Investments 🌏⚖️ Google Invested $300M in the Indian ShareChat💰 📲 The parent company of the Indian startup ShareChat has raised nearly $300 million in new capital from Google Alphabet Inc, media giant Times Group and Singapore's Temasek Holdings. This is Google's second major investment in the Indian short video industry. The fist one was aimed to support Josh, the competitor of a ShareChat Moj’s subsidiary. The popularity of short video apps like Mojo and Josh has skyrocketed after India banned TikTok from ByteDance and some other Chinese apps in 2020. Currently, ShareChat has 180 million monthly active users. The app was last valued at $3,7 billion in a $266 million funding from Alkeon Capital and Temasek. PTC Acquires the German Intland Software Company for $280M 🖥📀 PTC is an American software developer. It plans to use the ALM portfolio by Intland to help customers integrate program systems into their products. The transaction is expected to be closed in the third financial quarter. "This acquisition will complement our strengths in product lifecycle management (PLM) and model-based system design as part of our Digital Thread portfolio strategy," the president and CEO of PTC James Heppelmann claimed. Intland's range of ALM services is currently used in various industries, including automotive, life sciences, consumer electronics, and aerospace.
