I read a great article on why the younger generation do not buy cars & apartments anymore & found it #TooGoodNotToShare

#WhyOwnWhenYouCanRent?

#SharedEconomy

Nowadays,the traditional measure of success-owning an apartment & or a car-is getting out of date
An increasing number of young people around the world don’t want to buy them.

#Research shows that the so-called #MillennialGeneration, who are now 30-35 years old, rarely buy houses and even more rarely — cars. In fact, they don’t buy super expensive things at all.
In the USA, people under the age of 35 are called ’the generation of renters.’

Why does this happen?

Some sociologists say the current generation of young people differs from their parents’ generation. They have other values.

Johann Choux, Head of our Division responsible for equity investments in #startups and venture capital funds, is speaking at #AfroBytes2019. A great opportunity to explain how we work and to list some of the main criteria for our investments: impact and sustainability #AfroBytes
Today we have a portfolio of 12 investments and we are committed to investing in around 3/4 funds and 3/4 startups per year. But our support goes beyong VC, we also support local banks, which can lend to startups thanks to the guarantees we provide, and the ecosystem with @AFD_en
We want to invest more in North Africa and francophone Africa in the future, because as a #development finance institution, it is our mission to catalyse investments, and those 2 areas are very underpenetrated in terms of start-up investments. #Afrobytes

Today's article in @TheKenWeb contemplates "what ails" Indian #ECG Companies and concludes "Plenty as it turns out, starting with #healthcare providers themselves."

the-ken.com/story/what-ai-…

I have heard these sort of comments a lot in various flavours from different #HealthIT
What usually happens is a group of highly skilled, honest, hardworking Engineers or Management Graduates #Startups develop a product or service, test it and find it successfull but when they want to market is doctors don't buy
So
They start blaming doctors, directly or indirectly saying that this is a magic solution which will revolutionalise health and save 20 crores people per year, but this dull headed docs are not able to see the potential and / or afraid of technology

Thread. Please read if you have an #infant at home.

So this is a well-kept and potentially deadly secret about an industry that is growing exponentially and has spawned sexy, venture-funded #startups. The industry is #sleep. And the product is the #mattress. #parenting 1/n
Recently, we went #mattress shopping. After many trials (choosing a mattress is crazy stressful!) zeroed in on and placed an order at a prominent brand's store. It was a beautiful #memoryfoam mattress. I was drooling thinking of all the glorious #sleep I'd soon be getting. 2/n
I have had horrible body ache for years now thanks to our old #mattress that was handmade in Mumbai. I was so excited about buying this amazing new mattress that I did what anyone in my place would: obsessively Google memory-foam mattresses. 3/n

#ModiIsRobustJobCreator

#JoblessnessMythsBusted
1. Goa's desi tourists arrivals boom from 2014 to 2017

It shows rising disposable incomes and robust job creation

(That is if we understand job as a livelihood source and not limited to salaried jobs.)

2. This kind of massive poverty reduction not possible without robust job creation

1/ Okay perfect time to do a little tweetstorm on my reactions to this slideshare from @randfish.

The data here is isn’t surprising if you examining your own consumer habits...is surprising if you market the opposite of your actual customers.

slideshare.net/randfish/the-n…
2/ I still get clients who have facebook in the marketing strategy. It’s toug if you aren’t in a highly engaged Facebook group of your ideal customers.

It’s pretty much been pay to play for about 8-16mos and it won’t be going backwards.
3/ As @garyvee says, “marketers ruin everything”.

As a correction to the influx of bad/annoying actors, Facebook has been coming down strong on making tusers feeds less spammy (otherwise they won’t come to Facebook and make them ad revenue).

1/ Most people have been watching in shock as the story of dreaded #AngelTax reared it's disgusting head. Freezing the accounts of startup @Travelkhana and @babygogo_in has resulted in an uproar across India's startup community, calling for #ShutdownIndia
2/ Though the Central Board of Direct Taxation (CBDT) has released a circular claiming that the officer in charge of this particular case did everything by the book. Founder of @Travelkhana, @pushpinder has disputed the story, claiming the officer rushed the case through.
3/ Regardless whether the case was rushed through or not, is almost irrelevant because in any logical, normal universe, the case shouldn't exist at all. Period!

@firstround publishes a yearly #startups survey and the results are in - hugely useful data for all founders of all genders. But we have some thoughts when you look a little closer... stateofstartups.firstround.com/2018/
1. Only 17% of respondents were women, and results are not broken up by gender. So it calls into question finding #1, that most founders believe AGE is the #1 investor bias in tech.
1a. Obviously, if 83% of respondents are men, and never personally experience gender bias, this finding is massively biased itself.

@africatechie It is only sad because we are lazy and can't see it as a huge opportunity. It is why I can never forgive the current president of Nigeria for his appointments in tech, science & tech and education. This is a unique time in history. We can't stop the exodus - we can milk it!
@africatechie The world is desperate for tech talent - we have a pool of driven young people. We should educate them en-masse. Aim to train much more than the foreign market can absorb and create a bridge between those leaving and local market. The effect in less than 5 years will be HUGE.
@africatechie ...and NO - i am not talking about more @Andela (s). We need a concerted effort that will leverage existing academic infrastructure. Revamp CS curriculum with a strong creative spin. Set up a separate board to invest in CS education (for start) with a mandate to demonstrate ROI.

1. Voy a explicar el proceloso mundo de los “convertible notes”, ese instrumento, copiado de la práctica USA, tan utilizado por muchas #startups, como financiación puente a la espera de la serie A 👇(hilo)
2. Para empezar, en España, nada de “notes”. Las S.L. no pueden titulizar deuda convertible (cosas del legislador). Llamémosles préstamos
3. Aún así, vamos a usar el término “nota convertible”, porque se ha popularizado en el mundillo

0/ Another doozy of a thread for you!

The past ~24hrs saw a great many #blockchain projects share development updates and partnership news. Amid this, the #crypto space was ripe with discussion on several topics.

On what, exactly? Well that's for you to find out 😉
1/ 🇺🇸 @AugurProject [ $REP ] - yeah, that #Ethereum-powered decentralized prediction market everyone wrote off post-#mainnet as quickly as @Novogratz revises a #bitcoin price forecast (😘) - well the #USmidterms have seemingly awoken punters from far and wide. Those numbers!
2/ 🔎 @adam3us's leading #bitcoin and #blockchain technology firm @Blockstream announced its new block explorer, blockstream.info.

Now, users can search and view specific data published in real-time to the Bitcoin #blockchain, Bitcoin #testnet and Liquid #sidechain. Neat!
