Young entrepreneurs start a variety of different businesses. Most successful ones are internet business; fewer of them start product-businesses that end up selling well. A rare bunch are the young entrepreneurs who run successful biotech companies. The truth is, biotech businesses simply drain too much money most of the time. For instance, $1 million in funding for a social media app might be able to allow a few great engineering and product hires that allow...

The de­sign and agency spaces are among the most cut­throat spaces in the busi­ness world. Peo­ple fail, busi­nesses fail, clients don’t see re­sults or don’t like the de­signs that are pro­duced for them – these are com­mon nar­ra­tives in these two spaces in par­tic­u­lar. That’s why I was in­ter­ested in in­ter­view­ing Johnathan Grzy­bowski, the co-founder of Penji, a multi-mil­lion-dol­lar de­sign ser­vice that’s only just launched in October of 2017. To­day, Johnathan and I have a con­ver­sa­tion...

In several parts of the world, especially countries with large working populations, in-office catering is essential. While in some parts of the world like Mumbai, India there are a number of companies that offer catering to offices, this space hadn’t been modernized. Seizing this opportunity, Hunger Box, a...

In the status quo, we think of entrepreneurship being synonymous with the stereotypical Silicon Valley technology startup. We immediately think about Hewlett-Packard, which started from humble beginnings in a Palo Alto garage. We think of Tesla, we think of SpaceX, we think of Google. But the truth is, there are great startups far beyond the confines of the Silicon Valley. However, though business hubs have developed in various areas of the world, startups from outside of the...

What’s next for Snapchat? Will it reach beyond the heights of Facebook, or stagnate like Twitter? Snap Inc., the parent company of Snapchat, went public on Thursday. Snap was one of the biggest offerings in the tech sector since Alibaba. However, many venture capital and private equity firms are steering clear of the 15-year startup sector for now. Startups like Friendster, which once had over 75 million users, or Yik-Yak, the former viral gossiping app, cut down on...

No, this does not mean that all of your Snapchat messages are being released for everyone to see. However, this does mean that investors will obtain public access to shares in Snap Inc., Snapchat’s parent company. Snap Inc. filed their S-1 with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Thursday, revealing a somewhat struggling business that is having trouble attracting and keeping users engaged. Such concerns are creating doubts over the company’s reputed $25 billion valuation. The initial...
