Nick Ogden - Voice Commerce Group

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Friday, 09 January 2009.

It's good to talk. That used to be the motto of Britain's top telecommunications company, but as the internet has become an increasing part of consumers' lives businesses seem to talk less and less to their customers.

That's something that Nick Ogden, the founder of Voice Commerce Group, aimed to change when he came up with the idea for his latest innovation. The entrepreneur, who built the internet payment service WorldPay, is developing a business which allows banking and retail transactions to be confirmed using a "voice signature."

David Rowe - Easynet

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Friday, 09 January 2009.

In 1994 most had only just heard of the web and the thought of millions of homes and businesses up and down the nation being connected at super fast broadband speeds did not even figure in the public consciousness. That is except in the mind of one man.

David Rowe had already founded a couple of rapid growth high tech start ups, including the world's first Cybercafé, but was about to make a leap into the unknown. He launched Easynet, one of Britain's first internet service providers (ISP), and began something that has grown into a world class business with a truly global footprint.

Christina Domecq - SpinVox

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Friday, 09 January 2009.

Being named as one of the 'ten women to watch across Europe' is no mean feat. But SpinVox founder and chief executive Christina Domecq has taken the Wall Street Journal's accolade in her stride. She said at the time that 'the hard work has only just begun and we're all focused on building our business in the year ahead'.

After all, Domecq has built not just one but is now on her third successful business, and knows that hard work and sheer determination count for much. It is a philosophy she carries through to every aspect of her life. Domecq is the ultimate action woman who counts paragliding, rock climbing, sailing, scuba diving and mountaineering among her passions. And she also finds time to devote to charity. She helped fund an orphanage in South Africa, which houses 150 children, in an area beset with poverty and HIV, amongst other projects.

JP Rangaswami - BT Design

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Friday, 09 January 2009.

Perhaps it is JP Rangaswami‘s knack of surviving that keeps him optimistic when economic doom and gloom is pervading the world.

Not only was the former chief information officer at investment bank Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein put in a coma 25 years ago after being assaulted by a group of skinheads, he once nearly drowned and his heart beat is regulated by a pace maker.

Alastair Lukies - Monitise: Playing the long game

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Thursday, 08 January 2009.

When Monitise floated on AIM in 2007, the press was widely talking of the company as the next Google or Skype. A year later, with the share price joining the rest of AIM-listed companies due south, you might expect founder and CEO Alastair Lukies to be a little subdued. But you’d be wrong. Because Lukies is playing a long game.

“Monitise came about by no planned, orchestrated genius (that’s something I’ll never be accused of) – it was more about keeping your ears open.” Lukies’ opening remarks are typical of the man at the helm. He has this jolly, all-lads-together-in-the-showers manner liberally peppered with colourful language and confident self-deprecation. It’s not surprising to know that he was heading for a professional rugby career. A farmer’s son, he left school at 16 with not what you would call a distinguished academic record – more brawn than brain, you might think. Then he smashed up his foot in 17 places, his father lost everything including the farm as a Lloyds name and the rather English pastoral scene that was Lukies’ background fell apart.

Music, Money and the Power of the Many

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Wednesday, 07 January 2009.

If you are one of the estimated ten million unsigned music artists hoping to get the attention of a record label, you might as well buy a lottery ticket. If you are a record label hoping to break a new act, you do the equivalent of buying a lottery ticket every time you sign someone new. You need to ensure sales of 100,000 records to break even and statistically you’re so likely to fail. The industry spends four billion dollars discovering new artists, and the failure rate is crippling. If it wasn’t for some lucrative back catalogues all the labels would be bust. Reports of the ill health of the music industry are many and varied, but probably not much exaggerated. If it’s not being hit by illicit downloads, it’s struggling with a rising cost base.

So what to do? Wait for an entrepreneur to turn the music business model on its head.

Social media leads the future of technology

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Tuesday, 06 January 2009.

From Facebook to smartphones, advances in technology are changing the way we work and communicate. Professor David Yoffie led three experts in a recent panel discussion on "The Technology Revolution and its Implications for the Future" at the HBS Centennial Business Summit. Martha Lagace reports...

Internet-connected televisions, social media, and the power of simplicity were all cited as launch pads for future innovation in technology, according to a panel of experts that convened at Harvard Business School as part of the HBS Centennial Business Summit in October.And though advertisers love the Internet, to what extent they can capitalize on these transformations remains an open question.
