Why People Thrive in Coworking Spaces
We recently hosted a very special and successful breakfast networking event where James Swallow from PRO Partner Group gave a very informative presentation about the recent announcements around business licensing, company sponsorship, and other regulatory updates including the new Tajer Freelancer license and the announcement on the anticipated 100% Expat owned LLC license.
Cap Tables, Share Structures, Valuations, Oh My! A Case Study of Early-Stage Funding
There seems to be something special about coworking spaces. As researchers who have, for years, studied how employees thrive, we were surprised to discover that people who belong to them report levels of thriving that approach an average of 6 on a 7-point scale. This is at least a point higher than the average for employees who do their jobs in regular offices, and something so unheard of that we had to look at the data again.
6 Steps to Make Your Strategic Plan Really Strategic
For many entrepreneurs, especially first-time founders, raising outside capital can be daunting. Between all of the new vocabulary – like “term sheets,” “capitalization tables,” “pro rata,” and different valuation metrics – and the very real legal implications of the agreements being signed, it’s easy to get overwhelmed.
Many strategic plans aren’t strategic, or even plans. To fix that, try a six step process: first, identify key stakeholders. Second, identify a specific, very important key stakeholder: your target customer. Third, figure out what these stakeholders want from you. Fourth, figure out what you want from them. Fifth, design your strategy around these requirements. Sixth, focus on continuously improving this plan.
