Private Equity Vs. Venture Capital: Which Is Right For Your Startup?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Financial Consultant & author of Deep Finance, Glenn has spent the past two decades helping startups prepare for funding or acquisition. Securing funding is a crucial step for any startup looking to grow and succeed. As most business founders know, it can be difficult—if not impossible—to raise debt financing to fund new ventures. This is because traditional banks are not structured to provide loans to businesses that fall outside their risk tolerance. This leaves equity investment as the only option for most early-stage enterprises. Equity investors provide funding for startups in exchange for an ownership stake in the business. There are many types of equity investors, but the most well known and frequently used are private equity and venture capital. While these forms of investment share some similarities, they differ in many ways. Private equity investors target established companies that have a proven … [Read more...] about Private Equity Vs.

Web3 Rebels Vs. Tech. Oligopolies
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin People often ask me, “what is Web3?” My short answer, which I elaborate on in my ‘What The Zuck’ article and keynotes , is always—you are! Why? Because the promise of Web3 flips the ownership model and gives the money and the power back to you. Social media has deteriorated in many countries—especially for women—and the tech. and media oligopolists love it. These media landlords like TikTok, Facebook, Instagram, Google, Twitter, Apple, et al. have taken control of everything we do, say, share, post and buy online—and they are not very excited about the changes Web3 can usher in to their market. Want proof? While Tik Tok’s CEO, Shou Chew, was grilled by U.S. lawmakers in Washington today—last week at SXSW, his former product head admitted this about creators: “Platforms don’t really care if you are successful…because their metrics are 100 percent focused on retention, publish rates, active days. Monetization of … [Read more...] about Web3 Rebels Vs. Tech. Oligopolies
SEC teams up with BIR, PNP, Pagcor in crackdown vs criminal financing
MANILA , Philippines – The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is mounting a fresh crackdown on criminal financing activities, announcing that it has signed a data sharing agreement with government tax, police and gaming authorities. Under the agreement, the SEC will provide timely access beneficial ownership data. This refers to the ultimate personalities that own corporations and whose identities can be obscured by dummies and layers of legal ownership. “Beneficial owners of a corporation are distinguished from legal owners, which are defined as natural or juridical persons who, in accordance with the law, owns or has the controlling ownership interest over the corporation, or has the ability of taking relevant decisions within the corporation and imposing those resolutions,” the SEC said. The data sharing agreement was recently signed between the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), Philippine National Police (PNP), and Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. (Pagcor).

AI Vs. Outsourced Content: Which Type Of Service Should You Use?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin CEO of Outsource Accelerator , a leading marketplace and advisory for outsourcing, offshore and globalized employment. Content remains king, especially in our digitalized world. Every business on the internet uses content to establish its presence and get ranked on search engine pages. However, planning and creating content from scratch is not always easy, even for expert marketers. In-house teams in startups are often so riddled with work on their websites and social media accounts that much of their content is left undone. Fortunately, technology these days gives these teams options to lighten their workload. They can outsource content creation to service providers or have an AI assist with this task. While both methods are welcomed by teams worldwide, fears and speculations still arise regarding what extent one can use them. Let’s look at AI and outsourced content and examine which is an ideal service to … [Read more...] about AI Vs. Outsourced Content: Which Type Of Service Should You Use?
Contracting Vs. Hiring: How To Know Which Is Right For Your Business
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Patrick Frank, cofounder of PatientPartner . As soon as any ambitious new bootstrapper announces their plans to start a company, one surprising expense that’s often overlooked is the cost of labor. It’s ironic, considering that headcount-related costs will become the most essential outgoing each month. That’s why thinking about hiring strategically is imperative if you’re going to succeed in the long term, and why you need to know how to classify the people who work for you. When growing startups begin to scale up, it’s crucial that both parties are clear on the terms of employment. The Difference Between Contractors And Employees While we may be tempted to use “employee” as an umbrella term, it’s an inaccurate generalization. An employee is someone who is officially hired, joins the payroll and receives wages. Then there are benefits like paid time off, sick days and health insurance, in addition to … [Read more...] about Contracting Vs. Hiring: How To Know Which Is Right For Your Business

7 Ways To Encourage Workplace Anti-Racism, Nearly Three Years Since America’s Racial Reckoning
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin After George Floyd’s May 2020 murder triggered a long overdue racial reckoning grounded in Black Lives Matter advocacy, anti-racism became a trendy workplace buzzword. Companies kicked into PR overdrive, racing to release pledges to become anti-racist insisting that non racist was not good enough. Instead, they committed to building truly anti-racist organizations willing to face hard truths , encourage difficult conversations and move toward a new level of inclusion and equity for Black professionals in particular. Fast forward almost three years and the persistent racial disparities suggest that what seemed like performative PR at the time may have actually been….performative PR. Arguably, Black professionals are the least surprised as they’ve grown quite accustomed to the predictable cycle of tragic, high publicity racial event followed by lofty executive racial justice word salad followed by performative, vague, … [Read more...] about 7 Ways To Encourage Workplace Anti-Racism, Nearly Three Years Since America’s Racial Reckoning
Conor McGregor’s Burger King Commercial Is Laugh-Out-Loud Funny
Conor McGregor is now a spokesman for Burger King, and his first commercial is hilarious. The Irish-born fighter is promoting the restaurant’s new spicy chicken sandwich. Who better to promote a spicy chicken sandwich than one of the most braggadocios fighters on the planet? Nobody is more qualified. Burger King signs Conor McGregor to promote its spicy chicken sandwich. pic.twitter.com/IU6xshkzmI — Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) March 5, 2018 I’m honestly not even sure if they gave McGregor a script before they started shooting. Seems more likely to me that somebody just told him to pretend the sandwich was Floyd Mayweather, and then they let the camera roll. I love him shouting out all the haters at the very end of the video. Classic move from the UFC superstar. McGregor has become such a huge brand, it’s incredible. He was a nobody only a few years ago, and now he’s one of the most famous athletes on the planet.

Culture Trumps Strategy In Digital Health (Except When It Doesn’t, Which Is Most Of The Time)
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin September 2000 marked a watershed moment in modern business history: it was the month that Blockbuster declined to acquire Netflix for a mere $50 million. Today, of course, Netflix has a market cap of $135B, and Blockbuster is dead and gone (notwithstanding the eponymous show currently streaming on… Netflix). For business school students, founders, investors and corporate strategists, Blockbuster offers lessons in hubris and bad company strategy: from ignoring customer preferences to the importance of shifts in technology and business models that facilitated a new basis of competition to an overleveraged capital structure. Of course, it’s easier to analyze in retrospect a definitive, highly visible and high profile train wreck of company strategy than it is to build a company up to the heights and success that Blockbuster had once achieved. It’s also easier to see how bad strategy affects established companies (who … [Read more...] about Culture Trumps Strategy In Digital Health (Except When It Doesn’t, Which Is Most Of The Time)
