Don’t Throw Your Investors a Curveball

I recently read a piece by Mark Suster, a VC from Upfront Ventures which advised startups to withhold some of their financial information from some investors. Although the piece has some great points, if a startup decides to take this path they are more likely to die of paranoia than anything else. Why Stakeholders Deserve to Receive Updates? It is common knowledge that companies which are publically traded on a Read More...

6 Ways Not to Behave at a Tech Conference

We had some fun last week. Echelon Thailand happened and we were prize providers for the pitching competition. We had got tshirts and business cards printed and were ready to have two days of awesome fun. On the agenda was connecting with fellow startups and learning from the invaluable talks… or so we thought.

Remote Team Control

Our team was always quite distributed. Advisers in the States, crazy business angels in Scandinavia, developers in Europe and a core team in South East Asia.

This video is a great explainer for how APIs work. The user, Read More...

A fundraiser with Sir Richard Branson

We are not going to lie and say we had this great vision for pitchXO from the outset. The initial target was startups and raising for investment which turned out to work pretty well.

There Is More to Making a Deck Look Great than Design

So imagine this, we are back in early 2013 and pitchXO doesn’t exist (scary thought!). You have a new startup and things are going great! You want to raise a new round of funding and have made the perfect pitch deck. You have spent a few days scraping lists of VC’s and Angel investors who could be interested in your product and you want to send them an email with Read More...
