After packed into incubator, you found that entrepreneurship in “slow”

author introduction: Ashwin Ramasamy ContractIQ is the founder of the company. This site is for those enterprises and entrepreneurs to provide a free service platform, mobile curators plan allows them to look for the outsourcing partners.

Hari is a smart and savvy entrepreneurs, with a start-up company. Sent the mail to me one day, he asked me if there is any need to add a business incubator. I wrote back he said there is no need to immediately. After we talked for more than 30 minutes about it, but now I don’t think I ever so warmly discussed this matter with him. May I thought then save a young entrepreneurs is the heaven gives my mission.

the emergence of the business incubator is to help the business start-up entrepreneurs to understand the Starting Up 101 (Starting Up 101 is for students who are interested in entrepreneurship and community members held a seminar), so as to manage their companies, and their teacher are people had taken part in the business seminar. The role of the business incubator is mainly tells how the entrepreneurs and the right to carry out the work ahead of time, according to the practice, the fledgling company will not only survive in the fierce competition, also in the development of after becomes more prosperous, even reached a tipping point.

on this point, on the opening ceremony of Y Combinator someone has mentioned the concept that is probably say:

in 2005, Y Combinator has developed a new start-up capital business model. These enterprises should first moved to silicon valley for three months, in this period of time, we will work closely with them, helping them as soon as possible to the company development direction, and sells them to investors. These emerging companies need to prepare your company’s statement, has been invited to give those by carefully selecting investors do show, hope to get their money. So in each year’s Demo Day this Day (Demo Day is a subsidiary of Y Combinator startup semiannual Demo Day), the whole event will reach orgasm.

so, as one of the top business incubators, Y Combinator think this is a new kind of investment way. It’s caused everybody’s thinking: “why I said the emergence of the business incubator is not bring these emerging companies help?”

incubator is not as “omnipotent” you think

if the goal of the business incubator is to give these a start-up funding to help rather than – the purpose of this project was to help the company grow, and it is definitely worth a cynical. Emerging enterprise aims to a profitable or can be built using measuring platform, will become a real concept of the ideal development can quickly solve the problem of the sustainable development of enterprises. Money really can grow up in “enterprise” and “development” two aspects of help, but most of these start-ups cannot grow.

the majority of the business incubator is like a centralized project need to cooperate with many companies combined, the cooperation period is N months. In this period of time, every month business incubator to work closely with the project staff, and the cooperation time is often within six months.

Demo Day is a very convenient way, or for all of the business incubator is a business tool is necessary. Those involved in the emerging, however, enterprise must in business incubator in accordance with the relevant provisions, within a prescribed limit to selected companies making a presentation and even completed within the stipulated period, the practice often dispelled the enthusiasm of the emerging enterprises, may even lead these companies astray, let them for their company information fraud.

I mentioned earlier be incredibly ironic thing is that these emerging enterprise to join the business incubator as a shortcut to get financial support. These enterprises obviously ignores the fact that only a small part of the enterprise can get funded (the proportion exactly is 27%). In this quarter funded enterprise, because you is a subsidiary of entrepreneurial incubator is different, your companies the opportunity to obtain funding becomes more uncertain (72% of the 2012 Y Combinator company of emerging enterprises obtain the fund support). I know some of the business incubator doesn’t even have a Demo Day, a group of students “enterprise” their graduation after a year of learning, no company funding.

sometimes incubator can imprison entrepreneurs instead

start-ups often happened a historic breakthrough, always get breakthrough for the future with greater urgency. Even use the standard metric algorithm to calculate the growth of these companies a week, and also there is no way to predict a in the first week of no will achieve great success of emerging enterprises after a year to get their dream of “holy grail”, successful development of their enterprises.

keep in mind that the development of emerging enterprises must strike will, so was able to successfully change their own destiny. This is at the very least.

the problems encountered in the process of enterprise development will not only brings to the enterprise’s running short, in fact, in many cases, they may even cause irreparable damage. The business incubator is unintentionally to instill some common-sense ideas emerging enterprises, and the notion of these errors are often embedded hard to eliminate.

when it comes to products can adapt to the market, some with experience and conclusion instead more helpful.

in a certain sense, practical and realistic to do it better than do the investigation and study on the surface of the surface layer. I don’t know this thing is how to write code that to allow the product to adapt to the market, but, by contrast, to study the problem becomes less effective. Might as well to have a good talk about those crappy MVP and those who seriously study plan who good who bad.

disposable fragmented than have been struggling and the last is also not escape failure result is much better.

as a result, in a hurry to show or unprepared, but obviously the ensuing face and investors to negotiate, there are obvious his own company would not get signal, all these problems with the help of the business incubator is particularly prominent. There are a lot of emerging enterprises directly collapse under the pressure. These can’t afford so much pressure emerging enterprises should be how to do? In my opinion, they should make good use of the business incubator of intangible assets for them.

mentors are busy, most of people are struggling to

my own itself is in a global famous graduate business incubator, and became the company’s a teacher. Last year, I received a business incubator company gave me two emails. Mail contents are told me some instructions I had the latest development of emerging enterprises. In fact, I’m not remember their names, or their company engaged in the business. I gave them on the course for three months, in and after class, no firm has contacted me and told me that their company’s progress. As their company started tutor, I have no contact with them, the feeling is so bad. Ha ha, in fact is the fact that, after I graduated from the business incubator, I have been twice tried to contact my advisor, but are only talked about five minutes, after that, I have never contacted them anymore.

no matter how much these emerging enterprises mentor is famous, or how they are ready to help others, in fact, after the enterprise session, these teachers also can not find a strong reason to convince myself, whether should continue to keep in touch with the guidance of enterprise. In a global network of business incubators, this means that you made it that long mailing list of objects, and you’re just a irrelevant this mail receiving objects. Therefore, the development of emerging enterprises are told that the mail is not a secret, can let the teacher exchange platform and the emerging enterprises, this mail, also will not bring any pleasant feeling to you.

“display” success doesn’t make you get financing

if you are on your own in the Demo Day this Day can get financial support feel confident, then you are wrong. To treat this problem as 500 Startups, a partner at Christine Tsai gives this view:

if you think you can be in the Demo Day this Day can get investment, that do you really think is wrong. , of course, I do not rule out your enterprise can have access to the investment, but it is very rare. A Demo Day meaning lies in that you can contact with these investors, get a chance to know them. But if you just to get the purpose of investment, you might as well call each venture capital firm partner, the activities of the organization or directly go to their company. You can also go through the network and investors who are interested in your company development.

no matter where you get the money, its color and value are the same. Has an outstanding entrepreneur, he once told me: “you can give investors a premium, you protect the investor’s premium, until you hit the next investors before his assets are not at a premium. Tasks without Demo Day, relocation and entrepreneurial incubator company make the mark (in case you didn’t get any financial support after the Demo Day) under pressure, you get the money. If you need to face all the pressure to get a sum of money, the money before the money and comparison, its significance is self-evident. A wise man will make the right choice. In addition, you also don’t have to pay extra money during this period to make on your Demo Day to show the samples.

to grasp incubators of “intangible assets”

so why would you think entrepreneurship incubator can help emerging businesses?

, for example, there is a place where I can meet all my customers and potential customers, why don’t I? As long as they go to participate in the activities, emerging enterprise can establish its own brand, with smaller efforts can select their own customers. This is why vc firms are keen to attend business incubator.

and education, business incubator is also need competitive business, here, you can easily find companies that can create great value. You, however, it is difficult to quantify the ordinary of the lack of value the impact of the company to its customers. If a business incubator can give emerging enterprises is put forward to the opinion of the question, can replace funding and an unknown financial support, and it is also the target of the enterprise as a primary task to complete. After carefully considering the premise, there is no doubt that incubator more get the welcome of entrepreneurs.

everyone wants to win. As a result, the number of companies to join the business incubator, in a sense can be seen as to these business incubator service quality evaluation standard. Because there is no other way to prove, so the first stand out from the incubator is the first selection of emerging enterprises. But these companies should bear in mind that if you want your customers to face the choice which one business incubator, obviously you put your customers involved in the business of the game, and it is meaningless. Karma is like a high-end prostitutes, you must first pay to enjoy the service. To apply for admission to the threshold of the business incubator becomes quite high, this will make your customers feel the game is worth to attend.

as I said, all aspects of the business incubator is not necessary for your company to have help, they need only on those factors to measure the success of your company, better than you do. Such as a large number of customers work, like you a good tutor, who will be selected in the bid your internal investment network and so on. That is why it is difficult to easily pull out from here.

so, if you want to choose business incubator to develop your own company, then you can choose the way a full of unknown risks. The rest of the methods not only cheap but also can make your company develop better.

Honey, mom and dad: netease department again, this time to play pension! Millions of dollars have blue chi vc investment

(text/jing-jing fan)

in the old business is not good, everyone knows. In general is still “young” in the Internet world, this business may not be fun, Internet startup of tves, to play the young man’s beer and skittles, do the elderly market, that is really don’t know how, and but it is big business. Hunting cloud network recently interviewed two former executives from netease, their entrepreneurial projects, middle-aged and old consumer services market.

before talking about old business, hunting cloud network also found a set of data: in 2013, the national working committee office on aging in Beijing released undertaking development, China’s first blue book – the China aging development report (2013). Blue book points out, the grim situation of an aging society in our country, in 2013 the national aging population will exceed 200 million mark, 202 million. Released by China’s ministry of civil affairs on February 11, the full text of the social endowment service system construction “twelfth five-year” plan “(draft) is put forward, in 2020 under the care of the elderly care services in China and life potential market size will exceed 500 billion yuan.

so big a piece of cake, want those who go down to the mouth certainly many, and who really understand the how the mouth?

when it comes to eating cake, have to tell me something about the people who eat the cake. Sun fang lei, lang lai, founder of science and technology, the first former netease property the national general manager; Yan, the co-founder and CEO of science and technology, lang, a former netease property, the general manager in netease for eight years. Two people at ordinary times is “good gay friends”, is also a good partner on the job, starting from scratch, oorganization, do content, play the market, netease housing made into advertising revenue for hundreds of millions of yuan in media portal property.

sun fang lei in an interview with hunting cloud network, according to a few years he had worked in a pension industry group executives involved in some pension program, discovered the endowment industry of Internet business opportunities, think of pension will be after the property has a greater prospect of an industry, and strict click to start a business. To a former senior engineer team set up a complete set of tencent and search technology platform, also from the traditional health care nutrition business to senior senior managers manage the supply chain, has more than two dozen people of entrepreneurial teams. Duly completed blue ventures for several hundreds of millions of dollars in the first round of investment.

with rot has been paid to the word “vertical” Internet vocabulary, sun fang lei has been emphasized that they do is a focus on service consumption platform by the crowd. “We’re not vertical electric company, with vertical electrical contractor to define we are too simple, we around the active people aged 50-70 years old, is a focus on older consumer goods and services of electric business platform”.

is emphasized and the traditional vertical electrical business is different, “honey, mom and dad” is not the focus some traditional industries, products, and has three parts: first, cooperation and brand, do your own shopping (or brand official authorized distributor); Second, and companies to jointly develop products; 3 it is to soon to import health products from Hong Kong emailed straight goods overseas buy business. Commodity types include health and nutrition tonic, massage care appliance and is suitable for the elderly and the consumer electronic appliances use fall into three categories. Among them, health tonic nourishment, will be the main products of high frequency to buy, like the maternal and infant milk powder or diaper. In addition, in terms of delivery channels, honey, mom and dad’s logistics is cooperating with the third party logistics, the main motion package mail delivery.

although honey parents do is in the business of the old, but choose from “the children for parents pick good things” of this demand. Sun fang lei remember last month made a special trip to wangjing soho to stranger stranger founder Tang Yan scriptures, Tang Yan also use consistent manner of straightforward question: why do you want to be middle-aged and old about Internet marketing? Low degree of middle-aged and old network, after all, children buy so strong love certainly is consumption demand. “This is certainly a relatively less popular in the market, but space is huge. After our consumption object is 70, 80, especially women. We have done sufficient research, between 25 and 35 years old, average monthly income in 6000 yuan of above urban women, on average every 1 to 2 months will be for parents and in-laws to purchase a product or service, in the Spring Festival, father and mother’s day festival, a year for parents to buy a single twenty times abound. This frequency as everybody the growth of the age and the increasing consumption and women.” Yan told hunting cloud network.

honey parents differs from other one aspect of the electricity will be determined and the community, property, sun fang lei think community and property is the most can arouse the enthusiasm of the elderly.

New taste: fresh electricity of reverse thinking, based on the recipe ingredients of choose and buy

(text/plain HongGuang)

at present, the entire electrical dealer market of fresh style is varied. Such as cats, jingdong, shop no. 1 day, based on their electric business platform into fresh business; Such as wal-mart, rt-mart, yong hui traditional retail companies such as supermarkets, from offline fresh stores cut electricity; And traditional logistics enterprises, based on the cold chain logistics system to build fresh electricity, such as the motion; And new more vertical fresh electricity, such as youth, delicious cuisine king groups such as the development momentum is also very strong.

the author discovered that no matter what form of fresh electric company, the product of logic is to buy food home, based on the ingredients of the choose and buy recycled into the menu. While hunting cloud network recently a called “new” product, break through the conventional fresh electricity core thinking logic, based on the menu to the choose and buy the ingredients.

specific view, new taste (XinweiCook) is a young white-collar oriented western food production, food distribution site, can provide users with recipes, food package, such as ordering and booking service, to solve the problem of modern people early, middle and dinner food brand electrical contractor. New taste originally founded by founder Steve Ge back in 2013, in September 2013 began trial operation, constantly to collect user feedback during trial operation, improve the product core functions, and in April 2014. 2014 w angel investment.

team head hunting cloud network interview said that “new smell by the industry for more than 10 years of professional cooks delicious Chinese users against development, simple, nutrition, safety of recipes, and provide order in PC and mobile terminal, from food, seasonings, spices, and so on according to the menu to the user, user even without any food base can make delicious food at home.”

Fried duck breast with blueberry sauce

new flavour looks more like a recipe sites, but the kinds of western food is limited, but the common western food category, such as steak, pasta, fish, etc. New page design simple atmosphere, every dish has a separate page rendering, rendering the content includes the information of the dish (price, text introduction, need to use the equipment, cooking difficulty and time, and to provide the PDF download recipes), tips, pictures of all materials, and the details of the production process.

team leader said, “the use of the user process simple and convenient, first of all users in the site multichannel exquisite dishes of choose and buy a recipe; According to the user to choose a new flavor dishes, all the ingredients needed for the user, ready to cut, cleaning work, such as volume, packing, delivery to your door; The final user per step illustrated in simple production method, can make class restaurant food at home.”

it’s not hard to find, and the new pattern of similar products, such as the young prince, warm food and so on, all have in common is the recipe combined with fresh electrical contractor, but their starting points there are still some difference. As young monarch play homely Chinese food, since the pattern, and warm food are main baked goods, everyone is walking differentiation competition itself. And compared with the traditional recipe is O2O, new flavor of the advantage of one-stop service mode and the use of user experience, new taste will core competitiveness on the online product development and operations.

at present, the new flavour has extended out of Shanghai, in Beijing, shenzhen, guangzhou and other big cities can day delivery.

A – P – P – L – E data processing: apple how to let customers love it?

the well-known Apple fans are very enthusiastic, thanks in part to Apple’s retail stores insisting on providing perfect services to customers. Business Insider net interviewed Carmine Gallo, he had just finished for the Apple on the feelings about customer service book “experience Apple”, he told the website revealed how about Apple retail stores will do interesting inside so perfect customer service.

the irony is that Apple does not agree with the “constantly recommend they don’t need the service to the customer”, and that is exactly what Comcast, China mobile, unicom, telecom giants such as willing to do.

the Apple store employee will be trained to follow a short name A.P.P.L.E customer service guide, it is these step-by-step guide to customers so satisfaction.

Approach with a personal, warm welcome

A – to one-on-one reception and hospitality warm

the Probe politely to understand the customer ‘s needs

P – polite understanding customer requirements

the Present a solution to the customer can take home today

P – develop a customer can take the product home that day solution

Listen for and resolve issues or concerns

L – listen carefully and solve the problem of customer concerns or

End with a fond farewell and an invitation to return

E – farewell and to express customer again

we noticed from the specification p neither represents “force (Push) customers to buy more expensive but useless service” nor “let customers waiting (Postpond) three hours until the closing”. In fact, Apple is more of a training employees to be truly helpful and able to listen carefully to customer needs and to the people to solve the problem. Just it’s a pity that such a very simple but effective idea has not set up in some industry.


Antivirus search engine Google to become hacker “try” new tools

in these before releasing new software company, Microsoft, apple and they will be tested code, to ensure that the software running, and check whether there is a bug. And hackers and cyber espionage, too, if you are them, you should want to see in the most are the Trojan virus exposure of his own to storm victims system. And, more importantly, you don’t want to victims of antivirus engine detects you put those malicious tools.

so what should you do? You will submit your code to VirusTotal let it to you for the first test, if can pass its testing, So want to stolen So easy. Here, you might want to know whether VirusTotal is a what kind of god, don’t worry, we will talk about it soon.

you have such a doubt for quite a long time, hackers and national spy before the official opening of the malicious software, will use Google antivirus engine test, but has not been true. Not long ago, the independent security researcher Brandon Dixon tracking several high-profile hacking group, including two high-profile national hacking team, in their by VirusTotal hone code technology, development of tradecraft, Brandon Dixon caught them a present.

“VirusTotal against being used,” Dixon said: “this is really a satire. I never thought a country would use a public test system for such a thing.” VirusTotal is a free online services, founded in 2004 by Hispasec Sistemas founded in Spain, in 2012 and was bought by Google. It set including Symantec (Symantec), Kaspersky (Kaspersky Lab), security (such as f-secure) kill soft launch of more than 30 kinds of virus scanning program. The researchers or others if found suspicious files in a system, can be uploaded to VirusTotal, see if the scanner is to identify it as malicious files. But VirusTotal this in order to protect the system and the existence of engine, but inadvertently give hackers provides opportunity, allowing them to adjust the test their own code, until the code can fool anti-virus tools.

Dixon has for years been to upload the file data for online tracking, now he has identified some hackers and hacking team, they have been using VirusTotal refine the code.

he is able to do this, because each a file will be uploaded to the VirusTotal metadata. These data include file and upload time, still can store the IP address of the uploader is compressed, by IP address, we can know in which country these files are uploaded. Although Google hid the IP address, prevent user information, but through the hash, we can still know which several files from the same IP address submitted. And, oddly, Dixon monitoring several hacker groups like to submit the malicious code with the same IP address, don’t understand the word of a wily rabbit has three burrows.

use of their own to create a set of analytical algorithm of metadata, Dixon found some documents submitted by the patterns and rules, he speculated that the metadata belong to two well-known network spy team, one of the points should be haunted by Iran. Dixon has spent months of observations of these organizations, they use VirusTotal gradually perfect code, soon, the scanner is more and more difficult to detect these after grinding of malicious software. Dixon watched them closely, and in some cases, Dixon can predict when they will attack, and even when users suffered attacks – when he saw some once again tested code appear on the VirusTotal, when some victims found them on the machine, and submit them VirusTotal test.

as to Dixon is how think of metadata research VirusTotal so instead of means, that is because there are security researchers repeated the hackers use the site as a testing tool. Until now, he still not willing to publicly discuss his research on metadata, he knows that it will make hackers change strategy, more difficult to catch them after the fox’s tail. But he also said that the current VirusTotal database has enough historical data, enough for other researchers to study and find out those he didn’t find the net. So not long ago he openly developed code, the code can better analyze metadata, so others can also began to study independently.

Dixon said, get data can find out the hidden BOSS this upgrade is not exist. “Find out they are a very difficult thing, when I just begin to pay close attention to these data, just a confused, very anxious to grab land, I don’t know what I should look for, also don’t know how the hacker is tempered, until I find a hacker.”

Dixon track to Iran of an unknown hacker or hacking group, in the past only a month in June, file upload about 1000 virus, thus acquired a lot of the soft kill experience. In some cases, they can always keep not hair, until the successful completion of the adjustment, to bypass any anti-virus software.

now hacker groups on VirusTotal activities have been exposed, but there is no doubt that they will not converge, will continue to use this engine, just will change the way, let you more difficult to find them. Dixon happy about this. As long as the security company to determine who test on VirusTotal malicious code, they can find the opportunity to find their clues, grasp the features of them, before these code drop out, create good corresponding defense mechanism.
