With one day late, sorry Predictions of Social Media in 2009 (by Marc Cortes ) Here comes the coconut or the responsibility of the respondent (by Maria Rosa Diez ) must pass the baton When the founder of a start up (by Tecnorantes ) on Twitter for journalists and media communication (by Roberto Carreras ) The "long tail" of business (for SME Crunch ) The customer loyalty is a priority for marketers during the crisis (by Pure Marketing ) 2 Finalists SeedRocket (by Carlos Blanco ) without losing Social lacabeza (by Icarus Moyano ) Silent Conversations (by Marek Fodor ) Bazkaria 2.0, 3rd Edition: consolidation (by Eneko Knorr ) Right now back to Madrid on the AVE and I take the time today dreadful food, serve to vary; D to write a brief summary of i Start Ups Forum of First Tuesday and held last night in which I was a member of jury. This was a pilot, from First Tuesday organized by Charles White and Alicia Helguera, and as such should be understood, as an experiment to see if there is room for such initiatives using the platform of First Tuesday in Madrid and Barcelona were able to hear 7 entrepreneurs "sell" their projects informally for 6 minutes and respond to questions from Business Angels, Family Offices and Private Equity. Finally the jury voted with 1.2 and 3 points your 3 favorite projects and the result was: 1. Unlocked Voice 2. Wedtool.com 3. Sponsor an artist I'd like to comment aloud, certain thoughts that haunt my head about the experiment and what entrepreneurs and presented. Are personal opinions, and entrepreneurs such sobnre the jury is not unanimous, each person is different. Entrepreneurs About: - I hope not to break any off the record if I recognize that the three winners and was only voted in my last position votes with 1 point to Sponsor an Artist, which I think is an original idea, viable, which is underway and that if your model adapts to the way of digital distribution of music (eye!, which had not really provided) can be success. - My votes went to Pomelo.tv not vote to almost anyone else but I understand. This is a shared diffusion model based on p2p streaming would allow online retransmit all kinds of events. They want 5 million Euros (which is science fiction are -1 and 2 tb science fiction right now, and those numbers spoken aloud in public rub provocation), invested in a technological model today without agreement and no customers. That said, joke, understand that no one vote. And because if I did?, For a very simple reason, that technology, if they enter reason otherwise apply and remove the head pretending to be a distribution channel of large chains and international film producers and base it on advertising, see applicable and usable. I can get to like the idea, with another more realistic and less "global world conquest" - The other project that was voted Idea Worth , in this case with surealismo some point, because I thought the more enterprising than the idea and the project. believe that more should outline the business model and to focus on a REAL monetization, but I believed it, I liked it and as I said in the past, for me to meet the entrepreneurs and believe it is critical, much more than the IDEA. In that line saw Lluis Faus and Carlos Blanco, agree on the same impression. Moreover she insisted she did not want to say too much in public for fear that you replicate the idea. Gran paradox indeed when it comes to a platform that aims to spread ideas, and although hard shove to the head, the key is the team and the execution, ideas are free and replicable. If you can compete against your own idea into other hands, your project does not work. - I was shocked by several things. Except Bubok , which in my opinion was "out of competition", the other projects were at a very early stage, and that's perfect, but all spoke of their International expansion? . There are good presentations that get lost in those big words. Not yet barely running, you're not in the market, your model does not have even successfully validated, are asking money to start and already speak of expandirte internationally and conquer the universe. ¿? It was common in all projects. I do not like you less credible. AH! And translate a website into English or French is not expandirte internationally. In fact, I can not remember in 10 years more than 20 or 30 Spanish companies that have expanded internet outside Spain in a real way and successfully. If you're talking about your day 0 to conquer the world, believe me, grinds. - All entrepreneurs spoke about money. "Gasoline" is certainly necessary, but it squeaks, no person spoke or defined if you want money from a business angel or venture capital, and are things that have nothing to do. For me it is, as an entrepreneur, very important to define what kind of money you want, and talk about synergies. Were there any major sector Business Angels, expecting a nod to "more than money". There are people who primarily provides money and other people who can offer the same, more or less, but with other added values. Nobody talked about these added values only money, and from my experience I can assure you that these added values, synergies with companies , have certain level networking partners is much more important than the paycheck you receive and can open many doors to your project. That's not derogatory to venture capital, is simply that I think are different stages and levels, to build your business and develop need more help than just money. - Times: I think selling your company, project or idea in 6 minutes is too little. , Vicente Arias , etc… es una oportunidad única, quizás jamás te reciban personalmente, debes “morir matando” y vender hasta el último suspiro tu proyecto. No puedes usar 3 minutos y se acabó. Then you end up in 3 or 4 before I find incredible because you have the likes of Luis Martín Cabiedes , Alejandro Santana , Axel Serena , Lluis Faus , Eneko Knorr , Vicente Arias , etc ... is a unique opportunity, you may never receive personally must "die fighting" and sell until the last breath your project. you can not use 3 minutes over. If you're not passionate about selling yourself your idea in public, do not point it at!. On the format: At dinner later, as Carlos says today , discussed the ideal format, if this format is used to evaluate a project. I think it is good for something that to me is more useful to see, without the crutch of a power point even entrepreneurial live fend questions and explain your project to bare chest. For me it serves to define whether there is "entrepreneurial wood" and that I have always argued that it is essential before sitting down to watch a project if you do not believe in the team and the entrepreneur does not make sense. Of course that will not leave FT investments, which will is impressions and contacts and I think I can ensure that several subsequent meetings in which business can exit possibility. Forum I found a different and useful, more casual and less corseted, support current, but maybe more like what Business Angels as representatives of venture capital. Today I travel to lunchtime to Barcelona to participate in the forum I Start Ups organized by First Tuesday . I have the pleasure of being one of the members of the jury that will evaluate to 7 startups. The jury is composed by very prominent internet, business angels and entrepreneurs:
