Another Fine Mess?

Written by Bernd Richter on Thursday, 25 June 2015.

Fines aren’t fine any more. That should be a message resonating loud and clear around financial institutions, as another year of the rolling regulatory tsunami gets fully underway. We’re braced for the ever-rising tide of compliance-related complexities and non-compliance penalties. We need more than ‘business as usual’. Why?

Two years ago, I wrote a blog about building a website “responsive” which means you can view a website on your smartphone or tablet/iPad as you would on your desktop. A website will change according to the screen it is being viewed on. This is down to the handy work of Ethan Marcotte.

Fast forward, and it’s now crucial that online businesses build a websites that is mobile, because of Google’s latest algorithm and the need to rank high is so important. We are now in the era of hyper-relevant and user-friendly search. It’s time to go mobile or go home.

The success that comes from failure

Written by Alastair Campbell on Wednesday, 17 June 2015.

In early 2008 I was offered £1.2 million for my first tech startup I turned it down.

Having grown the credit reporting site up from nothing in 2000 when no one else was doing anything similar, my co-founder and I decided that the offer we’d received didn’t reflect its true value. After the money had been divided two ways and Capital Gains Tax had been paid, the offer would have paid us an income for only eight years, so we agreed to carry on for a better offer.

\\\ WARNING /// Disruptive thinking ahead

Written by Julie Meyer on Tuesday, 16 June 2015.

I am an observer. This is the way I approach the world. I've been thinking the thoughts that I'm going to share with you for eight years, and I keep on trying to refine the thesis to find out whether or not I'm smoking dope. I keep having conversations with smart entrepreneurs and investors, because, one day, someone might tell me something that I've observed incorrectly. If I've made a mistake or I need to refine my thesis, I will be open-minded. Yet, to be honest, the opposite is happening. The market is approaching where I've been. I understand how digital disruption is affecting traditional, non-tech businesses and the vital role digital enablers can play in helping them build digital revenues.

What can accelerator programmes help you with?

Written by Ian Merricks on Monday, 15 June 2015.

Why consider an accelerator in the first place? What value do/can/should they add to your start-up?

With over 500,000 businesses started each year in the UK, the short answer is differentiation. Various degrees of filtering occur, at selection stage, throughout the programme with the input of mentors and then at the investor event or "demo day". This screening has a real value.

If you are then selected, you have delivered your first huge point of external differentiation. In our Accelerator Academy programme you are one of 30 high growth start-ups we will work with that year (in three semesters each supporting 10 start-ups), selected from say 300 applicants.
