[Question] – Has any of you worked with influencers – what’s the commercial model?

So we're launching a new fintech service for EU expats, and based on our research we see an opportunity whereby, we could leverage the traffic from influencers that manage relevant Facebook groups, blogs and news websites.

Has any of you done this before, what's the usual dynamic for a deal?

Ideally, what it'd be fair for us is to pay an affiliation fee €£$ based on the conversion that we receive, for example how many people register (or join our waiting list for now). Is this something that works out on both ends? Or what's the usual dynamics of such collaboration?

Thanks.

What’s personality got to do with it? Top qualities for founders

Entrepreneurship has raised the interest of psychologists over the past few years. Their research has increasingly focused on topics like understanding the psychological price of entrepreneurship, to finding the personality traits that characterize successful founders. Founders, particularly in the early stages, face an enormous amount of uncertainty and a high degree of demand complexity, begging the question: is there a type of personality/personalities that can manage this burden most successfully?

In 2014 research paper published by Michael Frese and Michael Gielnik investigated a wide array of variables like personality dimensions, entrepreneurship constructs, and psychological constructs, seeking to identify how these related to entrepreneurial success.

They found several traits and qualities related to entrepreneurial success and we’ll explore them in two categories: Entrepreneurial Traits, and Psychological Traits.

Entrepreneurship Traits

Entrepreneurial alertness – Defined as the ability to notice business opportunities without searching for them, entrepreneurial alertness provides founders with the advantage of identifying the discrepancies in the markets. The combined effect of information processing and information acquisitions, resulted in better predictive validity.

Aptitude for planning – Having the aptitude to create business plans that describe the current state and a presupposed future of a business is important. Research has found that business plans can have two functions:  1) To facilitate and regulate the action; and, 2) To legitimize the venture, i.e. illustrate potential to investors or banks. The research expanded on the former, stating this shows a clear path to achieve goals, whilst also being flexible to change said plans as time goes on.

Financial resourcefulness – Sometimes lack of financial capital and founder failure can be blamed on institutions or other external causes, but research has shown that neither the existence, nor the perceived existence of resources, affected entrepreneurial efforts. Instead, capital constraints did not affect new venture creation when founders had mental models similar to the experienced entrepreneurs. In fact, there was a negative effect when nascent entrepreneurs’ mental models corresponded to novice entrepreneurs. They also found that these models can be taught, and founders can take actions to overcome financial constraints.

Entrepreneurial orientation – Characterized by autonomy, innovativeness, risk-taking, competitiveness, aggressiveness, and proactivity, entrepreneurial orientation is found in the majority of successful founders. Companies with high entrepreneurial orientation outperform other companies because this mindset helps seek and exploit new opportunities for growth. Research has provided enough evidence to say that entrepreneurial orientation and its sub-components are highly correlated with company’s performance.

Psychological Constructs

Willingness to continually learn – Several scholars have argued that knowledge is central to discovering new business opportunities. For example, unsurprisingly, specific knowledge in areas like industry and managerial experience is more important for entrepreneurial success than general knowledge. However, when paired with poor decision-making, relying on shortcuts, or a tendency to become constrained by the familiar, knowledge is not enough. Founders should always be continually learning new information, in order to not hinder the identification of new business opportunities.

Practical mindset – Practical intelligence means making fast and accurate decisions, joining knowledge about ideas, processes, and operational paths to be successful. Practical intelligence also means repeated experimenting, testing and revising of the business concepts to continuously improve without wasting time.

Tendency for overconfidence/overoptimism – Research has found that it is possible that this cognitive bias increases entrepreneurs’ motivation to initiate action and to persist even in the presence of failure and low expected returns. On the other hand, setting unrealistic goals, making non-optimal decisions, or interpreting ambiguous information as promising opportunities can also arise from the same cognitive bias, resulting in failure. Research has revealed that overconfidence had a curvi-linear relationship with company performance, suggesting that after an inflection point overconfidence has a negative impact, but is necessary for the first stages of the business.

Growth mindset – Research has shown that entrepreneurs who set specific and challenging growth goals for their ventures achieved higher growth rates over periods of two – six years. Focusing their attention on desired outcomes helped them execute the needed tasks to achieve them, providing them with the right tools for communicating their visions to their teams, having a positive impact on everyone involved.

Proactive and autonomous attitude – This is characterized by self-starting, proactive, and persistent behavior. There is empirical evidence that having so-called “personal initiative” has positive effects on entrepreneurship, supporting the claim that a higher degree of active performance is a central determinant of successful entrepreneurship.

Passion – Defined as an intense positive feeling toward entrepreneurial tasks and activities relevant to the entrepreneur’s self-identity, entrepreneurial passion plays a key role in providing positive and activating feelings that translate into motivation and effort from founders. Experiencing those feelings creates “action tendencies” to move toward an object and the energy to make an effort. Additionally, entrepreneurial passion leads to higher levels of goal commitment.

The research found that there are no psychological paths to ensure entrepreneurial success, but action characteristics like personal initiative, goals, visions, planning, among others were found in successful founders. 

It was also emphasized by the authors, that entrepreneurship is characterized by many phases, requiring founders to adapt and solve new challenges every day, turning entrepreneurship into a possibly stressful and even depressing path to pursue. But don’t let that turn you off – check out our articles on how to combat burnout and manage employee well being. 

EU-Startups

Got our first 50 customers in 3 months whats do I do next?

Even with coronavirus in the past three months we have manage to get those 50 customers and we are going really well but I’m trying to work out what to do next?

The previous initial stage was just focused on generating customers and being reactive to each day but now I want to be proactive on how to plan and build for the business to succeed? Business is set up for scalability once we start making a positive contribution margin per customer although at the moment our process is very manual.

I can’t post specifics on here because my boss may see them I am running start up and he is working on it part time and has a full-time job. It is incredibly frustrating working with the owner as he doesn’t see the work I have done to make it successful as he just assumes it just happened naturally

How can I show him the work I have done which is making it successful?

How can I make him more accountable and keep him on track doing what he says he will? How can I get him to being so focused on each days number of sales and looking longer term?

The business model isn’t normal customer pays for good or service. The customer signs up with us and each a commission from it and than we provide a service to them.

What’s Comes Next? OurCrowd Team Shares Top 10 Pandemic Tech Trends

For the past number of months, our global community has been focused on combating COVID-19. During this time of uncertainty, entrepreneurs have adapted to pandemic-focused innovation. To highlight the incredible efforts of those working to help society acclimate to our new environment and improve the current state of the pandemic, OurCrowd hosted its Pandemic Innovation Conference on June 22nd. The world is different now, and every new era comes with its own set of trends. In this segment, Labs/02 Partner Stav Erez and OurCrowd Medical Advisory Board Member Dr. Jonathan Wiesen discussed the top 10 tech trends affecting our global community in light of the pandemic.

  1. Say Goodbye To Your Office: The Virtual Becomes Real

The future of work and remote technologies is one of the first things that comes to mind following the COVID-19 pandemic. With the distancing protocols, people have turned to remote communication platforms, but that’s just part of the virtual revolution. We’ve also seen an uptick in use of products providing digital solutions, such as TechSee, a startup that helps engineers manage network troubles remotely, avoiding the need to enter people’s homes, keeping both parties safe. Another area that’s had to adapt to a virtual reality is fitness. Thanks to programs like Kemtai, which uses advanced computer vision to create a personalized home fitness experience, users are able to exercise at home and it’s as if a trainer were right there in the room.

  1. Beyond the PCR Drive-through: Diagnostic Testing Becomes Real Time

Medical testing has always been a serious endeavor performed by appointment in healthcare facilities or licensed labs. Social distancing measures and the fear of infection have caused medical appointments to move to large outdoor areas such as parking lots and open fields. Startups such as Sight Diagnostics, a point-of-care and complete blood count company, and MeMed, which developed technology to distinguish between bacterial and viral infections, are paving the way for “fast food” medical testing.

  1. Automation Leaps Ahead to Discovery: Robots Learn To Teach Themselves

During the OurCrowd Global Investor Summit a few months ago, we predicted that anything that can be automated, will be automated. We had no idea then just how quickly the automation trend would take off! This growth rate is largely due to the pandemic and the need for companies to be more efficient with fewer resources. The more companies are able to automate, the more efficient and agile the processes will become. For example, Kaholo is a startup that allows them to do just that through low-code visual platform for automating IT and DevOps tasks.  RPA, Robotic Process Automation, is about to replace the billions of repetitive, manual procedures that normally consume a lot of human attention and time. Additionally, companies like Kryon are spearheading this revolution by developing the RPA processes that don’t require any human intervention.

  1. The Doctor Will See You Now – Online 

Just like the other office buildings, brick-and-mortar medical clinics have been relatively shuttered throughout the global lockdown. In the midst of the greatest medical emergency in the last 100 years, most people were cut off from their physicians — at least in person. Telemedicine enabled a remote connectivity between patients and physicians from any location at any time. TytoCare provides a cache of tools that allow physicians in their offices to perform physical exams on patients in their homes and global provider Dario Health has partnered with MediOrbis to provide 24/7 coverage and monitoring of their patients.

  1. No Borders, No Walls: Data Collaboration Becomes Huge

Although countries shut their borders and restricted travel, the distance between Tel Aviv, San-Francisco and Shanghai has never felt shorter. To solve the global health threat, scientists needed to share: share knowledge, share samples, share data. data.world is building a platform that will revolutionize the way individuals and organizations are working with data by increasing global accessibility and understanding of its catalogued data.

  1. Microbes Beware – Innovation Will Wipe You Out

Personal hygiene has long been an important but under-recognized factor in infection control. Due to the pandemic, public perception of personal hygiene has changed tremendously and people wearing masks and wiping down their seat at a restaurant is considered “safe” and “responsible,” not a germ nut. While personal protective equipment is a start, what’s really needed to contain the virus are portable and reliable anti-microbe disinfectant materials, such as those used by SaNOtize, which help individuals disinfect their upper respiratory tracts, nasal passages, and hands. These materials will play a crucial role in our everyday life for the foreseeable future.

  1. Eating Healthy Becomes Life or Death

In light of the pandemic, there has been an increase in the average person’s attention to their day-to-day health. Healthy habits starts with eating in an organized and healthy way. Tovala is the first company to regularly deliver easy-to-prepare, high-quality, personalized meal kits that fit different dietary requirements. Another accelerating trend in the health food tech sector is plant-based dietary alternatives. Ripple has found a way to employ proprietary clean protein technology to create a great-tasting, nutritional alternative to dairy.

  1. The Antiviral Revolution Takes Center Stage 

How do you kill something that’s not alive? This is the greatest struggle that scientists, clinicians and pharmaceutical companies have with treating viral infections and is one of the reasons that while hundreds of antibiotics have been developed, there are only a handful of successful, approved antiviral drugs for common viral infections. We at OurCrowd have been assessing and evaluating many different and varied therapeutic options both for COVID as well as other viral infections to rid humanity of that nuisance once and for all.

  1. The New Reality Brings New Cyber Threats

Gil Shwed, CheckPoint’s CEO, recently warned of the worldwide increase in cybersecurity threats during the COVID-19 crisis as a second pandemic, a “cyber pandemic.” IXDen, the leading provider of IoT security solutions for critical infrastructure, protects against malicious breaches seeking to cause functional problems. Similarly, CyberMed is a startup focusing on intelligent detection, prevention, and revision solution for medical devices. CyberMed is working to help protect the already strained healthcare sector, which encompasses connected medical devices along with a network of patient records at risk through cyber attacks. 

  1. Designer Vaccines Are Getting Ready for the Next Target   

Vaccines are considered one of the greatest medical innovations of all time.  But we have seen how they fall short when they’re not perfectly tailored to a particular strain of virus. To take on future pandemics, vaccines require flexible platforms, so every virus doesn’t need to be created from scratch. MigVax, one of the leading vaccine startups, is taking an innovative and revolutionary approach to creating a vaccine platform, which will be crucial for fighting COVID-19 as well as any future virus that we face.

 

In this rapidly changing new world, we expect these trends to continue to evolve and look forward to keeping you updated as new trends emerge.

I’ve realized I need another Co-founder, how do you get over the fear of sharing your startup? What’s the best way to go about this?

My startup is just getting off the ground, and I've realized that I need more help. We are currently a two man co-founding team, however my partner has much more of a backseat role. His specialty in the company is much more niche, and I have been left to the entirety of the business building/marketing/logistics etc. My co-founder is also my boyfriend, and he is working a full-time job to support us while I work full time on the company, this is another reason he does not have the time to adequately help me. I realize that if I want to grow this the way I do, I need help. I need somebody else who is as invested and available as I am. I need somebody to push me to work harder (not that I don't work very hard already, haha) and that may have experience and skills that I don't, as I am fresh out of college.

Essentially I need someone to help me on a broad scale, but to essentially focus on sales and marketing. (We're based in New Hampshire USA if anyone who reads this happens to fit that bill and is interested!)

However, I am terrified of letting the wrong person join us, and essentially 'give away' a small piece of something I have worked so hard on. I'm also not sure how to find someone, as I have been unable to find anyone suitable within my network. I'm looking into using sites like CofoundersLab and AngelList, but any suggestions would be great.

What’s a big trend right now we should all be following?

Long time ago it was bitcoin..

We are all still in a massive journey to the cloud. Ugh. Taking forever.

Two years ago it was kubernetes and securing them.

Last year, all the data privacy changes made everyone wake up to privacy, data, compliance, and security.

What is it this year? ?

Start-Up Roles – What’s needed?

I'm working for a 4 person but rapidly growing B2B start up. I'm currently handling all first line support and training with some account management, product management and sales thrown in. We've got some new funding so we're hiring.

If they hire a support person I need to decide where my role is. I'd like to do more Product Management but I think the CEO will see account management as more important. Is there a title that combines these two or an alternative role? Ideally, I just want to get away from support and set myself up for a better career as a recent graduate while obvs helping the business grow. Plus a new support person would have better systems engineering experience than me.

It's good opportunity in a way but I'm not sure where to align myself.

As some background, I've a degree in business and law, I enjoy training users, solving problems and building things. Also do enjoy sales to a degree as our product doesn't require a hard sell.

Any tips would be appreciated!

thank you!
