It’s been a long time I shouldn’t have left you
Without a strong rhyme to step to
Think of how many weak shows you slept through
Time’s up I’m sorry I kept you*
It’s funny really, we only wrote about ten blog entries but when we took a brief break to concentrate on writing brochures, use cases etc., we got inundated with about three emails demanding that we get back to blogging! It’s not like there’s a shortage of content out there, we think it’s just because people are interested in the people they’re engaging with every day.
Lots has happened since last October, we won awards, raised equity funding, brought three new huge customers on board and grew the team. But that’s no excuse; we built an audience and then left you hanging. Sorry.
But let’s move forward. Here’s what you can expect to read over the next few months.
The Founder has gone through a number of funding rounds in different guises but none the size, scale and sheer reach of the various Uber raises. He’ll talk about that. As well, LinkedIn. Where to start on LinkedIn? The intrepid Founder is going to undertake an unusual social experiment, more of that another day.
There’s enough being said about Brexit and the brouhaha across the pond with the new leader of the free world (which in itself seems to be a controversial moniker) so we’re probably going to leave that alone. Not because we don’t have an opinion, rather that we don’t have anything to say that isn’t being said loudly elsewhere. So consider this a break from the madding crowd, a quiet corner, if you will.
We’re going to talk about the difference between UK venture capital people and their US equivalents and the challenges facing female start-ups. Pretty excited, eh? As if that’s not enough, we’re also going to ponder the wisdom of openly stating your football club allegiance on your website profile and the mystery of the shrinking Cadbury’s Crème Egg.
No, really. Watch this space. It’s going to be fire.
