WorldFriends to prove 'freemium' model works

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Tuesday, 14 July 2009.

World Friends is coming to London. WorldFriends is one of the world’s largest cross-culture online communities with 2m members from 230 countries. It offers people a high quality environment in which to enjoy ‘internationally minded’ socialising and meeting new friends with common interests, especially in the areas of travel, culture and language learning.

Jamie Turner - Postcode Anywhere

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Tuesday, 14 July 2009.

Entrepreneurs Jamie Turner and Guy Mucklow are proof that there is no single recipe for creating a successful business. They set up Postcode Anywhere, a Worcester-based internet company that builds software services around data, almost by accident after their dotcom start-up for the pub industry failed to take off. “We wanted to keep doing something and generate some income,” says Turner, IT Director. And, using some new Microsoft software, Postcode Anywhere was born.

They had planned their first venture down to the smallest detail, but Postcode Anywhere started life in 2000 without a business plan and evolved as they began to build it. “We ran with what felt right rather than being prescriptive about it. It is the anti-MBA approach,” says Turner. “We became more strategic in the way we managed things as we grew.”

Jonathan Elliott - Make It Cheaper

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Friday, 03 July 2009.

It has taken less than two years for Make It Cheaper to establish itself as the UK’s leading price comparison and switching service for small companies looking to reduce their utility bills. For entrepreneur Jonathan Elliott, founder and Managing Director, its leading position has not been affected by the recession.

The Golden Age of the Entrepreneur

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Wednesday, 01 July 2009.

After almost two years of financial uncertainty, collapsing banks, and recession the entrepreneurial spirit is still thriving in the UK. More than 200 entrepreneurs and investors gathered in Central London last week at the entrepreneurcountry forum to discuss whether The Golden Age of the Entrepreneur is upon us.

Central to the debate was whether financing was available to those with a good idea – or to a small company that needed to be catapulted to the next stage. Ariadne Capital CEO and entrepreneurcountry founder Julie Meyer said she was convinced capital will still follow a good idea, even in an economic downturn.

We need to rekindle our belief in the free market

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Tuesday, 30 June 2009.

I asked my Iranian friends last week while the Twitter revolution burned bright in Tehran whether the fact that Iraq was now a democratic nation - albeit one with security issues - was a factor in the people's non-acceptance of the election results. I half expected a - "Silly American - no not at all" response. They all responded - "of course, I mean - you know when you're not free, and you can see when your neighbours are."

Glen Manchester - Thunderhead

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Monday, 29 June 2009.

Entrepreneur Glen Manchester set up Thunderhead, winner of the 2008 Deloitte EMEA Technology Fast 500 index, in the technology recession during the early years of the 21st century. The same DNA that went into setting up the company has enabled the document automation provider to weather the 2009 recession.

“Recession creates necessity and necessity is the mother of all invention. We were formed in a technology recession post the dot-com burst in 2001,” says Manchester. “I took it upon myself to form my company. As a result of that, we’ve sold our technology all over the world.”

Eye on the future

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Thursday, 25 June 2009.

I briefly looked at the Dragon’s Den website today, and there was a comment referring to the amount of equity surrendered in making the deal with Julie. It said “sold his soul in a snip”. Well legend has it that Robert Johnson, the great delta blues guitarist, sold his soul to the devil in return for musical greatness - his mistake was that he didn’t negotiate an exit strategy!

I believe we can become a country of entrepreneurs

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Tuesday, 23 June 2009.

One of the biggest myths - and it is the size of the Wizard of Oz - is that there is job security. There is none, so get over it. It's not that employers are bad, but just that no one can honestly promise job security in an ever globalising world, and one where the pace of technological change is accelerating so fast that the only constant is that there will be change.

Jay Bregman - eCourier

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Tuesday, 16 June 2009.

Few businesses track the economic fortunes of the City quite as accurately as eCourier. The high-tech business, which brought the speed and accuracy of the internet to the old-fashioned courier delivery service, can pinpoint the time a crucial football match starts – and ends – based on the volume of orders before kick-off and the dearth of orders during the match.

In the same way it is a perfect barometer for the recession. “We are seeing significant down-trading from existing clients,” says entrepreneur Jay Bregman, who founded the company in 2003 with Tom Allason. But instead of shying away from the fall-off in trade the company has used it to its advantage.

Grumpy old tuber

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Tuesday, 09 June 2009.

Since my last journal entry, we have used Soundout to review two further songs: Grumpy Old Man and Sad Boy. Hopefully Grumpy Old Man speaks for itself - it’s really just a wry riposte to a passing comment... Don’t you hate being told to cheer up? It’s so easy to make snap judgements about people based on the way that they look, and you can’t change the face that you’re born with, can you?  (Yes - I know that you can, but that’s a different story.)
