Crypto-tech Industries Versus Traditional Venture Capitalists

A business is all about investment and the return on investment (ROI). The primary motivator of any business is capital. The more capital a business has access to the more the market penetration, innovation, and the capacity to leverage competitive advantage in the ever-growing global market.   Whatever the brand may be, the aim of any startup is to become a household name and if possible enjoy a relative monopoly. No founder if given the opportunity likes to have people breathing down the neck and prefers at all the time to dictate the tune.   The mitigating factor that enhances all these, however, is the availability of capital. For most startups, sourcing the capital to embark on all the lofty ideas is a herculean task. Banks that have such funds in their vaults usually attach very stringent conditions to the disbursement of such funds.   Founders and CEOs have ended up going cap-in-hand to banks and other financial institutions, with a sizeable number of them coming back with little or nothing.

Why You Should Translate From an Employee to an Employer

It has always been the mindset of most people who have graduated from the high school or college to get out there and grab a 9 to 5 thing and when such does not happen, they become devastated.

The Economic Policy Institute in the U.S. carried out a research and reported on May 4, 2017, that “while we have seen the unemployment rate for young high school graduates approach its pre-recession level, the underemployment rate remains elevated.”   I want to believe that this should not be the situation. In my candid opinion, the problem is based on the fact that we have relied too much on the 9 to 5 stuff and lost…

How You Can Transform Nature With Your Midas Touch

The biggest mistake you and I are probably making is looking at the world and then thinking, everything is in place, there is nothing I can contribute again. The guys who came before me have invented everything, how I wish I came into this world some years back, then I would have been a trailblazer.   Where we got this mindset is what completely knocks me out and you need to believe it, millions of people out there rationalize like this. The truth is that nature has given us so much and we need to give back to nature.   To give back to nature, you must first do an in-house check, where you ultimately repackage yourself to be able to come out with the best that will fit into the ecosystem.     I was able to do serious brainstorming and came up with 4 antidotes to this erroneous conception.   Pick a role model   A lot of people out there have done it, they decided to put in their Midas touch and they revolutionized the world. They did it, you can do it.   Bill Gates did not invent the computer, what he did was to put…
