    1. 企业家成功的故事通常是这样的:你致力于一个巨大而且不断增长的市场,你筹集资金,你扩大规模,打出一记漂亮的本垒打,然后你退出,作为一个新生的百万富翁在日落的白色沙滩上漫步,享受永无止境的美景和美酒。 这个故事引人入胜,但有一个问题:它从未真正发生过。​在开办企业之初,你就会被鼓动被期待着制定退出计划。但是企业被收购的可能性非常小,万分之一,也许千分之一?把注意力放在退出上是一场愚蠢的赌博。你创业的动机应该比渴望致富更深一层。​此外,对兑现财富的过分关注很可能造成自我破坏。Jason和David看到,策划退出和全力以赴追求成功不可能兼得。你需要执着于保持船舶航行,而不是想着随时跳船。​用他们的话说,你需要的不是退出策略,而是持久策略。​——Basecamp

    1. The way I think about things, consider FB a giant fly-wheel.... You want the external edge to move very quickly and iteratively -- and small dings when you get things wrong don't cost much, but the deeper you go in the stack / towards the infrastructure core (and really the human capital core even below that), you want things to move more slowly and predictably.

      This is an interesting analogy

    1. TƯ DUY LÀM STARTUP: CẦN "XÂY MÓNG THẬT VỮNG CHẮC TRƯỚC, XÂY NHÀ SAU"Đang trong giai đoạn viết ebook phần 2 bổ sung miễn phí cho ae đã mua hôm trước, nên tranh thủ nhắn cafe với anh Dong Xuan Nguyen để "lượm chữ" về viết tiếp. Quả là không uổng công sức chút nào!Nội dung học được buổi này đáng giá "tiền tỷ" với riêng mình, nên ae chịu khó ĐỌC KỸ & cho 1 #like nha! (Lâu lắm rồi chưa có post nào trên 2k like). kkNói thật là mình ko biết background a Đông khủng vậy, cho đến khi ngồi cafe với ảnh hôm nay:- Thời 2005 đã bắt đầu phát triển trang anhso-net với anh Nguyễn Bá Đức, giờ a Đức đang phát triển Homedy rất đình đám (cái này mình mới đọc sách "Từ nông thôn đến triệu đô" của anh Tuấn A1 về case Coolmate mới biết đó)- Anh cũng từng đồng sáng lập phát triển một cty agency, sau đó bán lại. (trước mình có đọc cuốn sách nào đó, có nói game xây doanh nghiệp xong bán là CON ĐƯỜNG LÀM GIÀU NHANH NHẤT). Cách làm này rất giống với thằng bạn @Hứa Phước Trường của mình. kk- Sang năm 2015 a Đông tại tiếp tục startup & là đồng sáng lập của Ecomobi, giờ doanh nghiệp này chắc phải vài chục triệu đô (mình đoán vậy, hoặc có thể trên trăm-triệu-đô rồi)- Chưa dừng lại ở đó, a Đông cũng là người "đứng sau" hỗ trợ cho Coolmate "xây móng" từ ngày đầu, và có cổ phần tại doanh nghiệp này. (Định giá gần nhất ~20 triệu đô, và tốc độ đang tăng trưởng thần tốc x nhiều lần, hướng đến IPO vài giai đoạn 2025)- Bất ngờ hơn a Đông còn đang làm việc với vai trò quỹ đầu tư, đã đầu tư chục startup khác, và cũng đang tìm kiếm các cơ hội "xuống tiền". Nên ae nào làm startup tranh thủ hẹn a Đông cafe để "bào tiền" lúc quỹ của ảnh đang còn nhiều cash nha! kk- ...Đó là vài thông tin về a Đông để ae trust hơn với nội dung, và dưới là một số chủ đề ae nói chuyện & hỏi đáp trong buổi cafe...1. Làm startup cần "xây móng thật vững". Nên trang bị năng lực vững vàng để lựa chọn hướng đi đúng, làm chậm rãi & chắc chắn ở những bước đầu tiên. Có “móng vững” rồi thì bước “xây nhà” sẽ không khó nữa & bền vững hơn. Nếu có mentor giỏi/nhiều kinh nghiệm định hướng cho việc này sẽ tốt hơn, để quá trình build doanh nghiệp chuẩn chỉnh & phát triển xa được. (Mình cũng đang nhờ a Đông góp ý để "tái cấu trúc" lần thứ n cho ATP Holdings)2. Làm startup, khát vọng/ước mơ của nhóm founders rất quan trọng, từ những khát vọng đó mới ra được plan thực thi & kết quả. Nhưng người làm startup cũng phải thực tế với nguồn lực của mình chứ đừng quá viển vông (Chúng ta sẽ ntn sau 3-5 năm nữa? Tại sao phải làm nó? Kế hoạch cụ thể ntn?)3. Quan điểm mình làm doanh nghiệp trước giờ theo hướng đơn giản, tập trung sự hiệu quả để ra lợi nhuận sớm, tiết kiệm & an toàn (ko bỏ nhiều vốn, ko cần gọi vốn). Nhưng cũng vì đó mà có những vấn đề nhất định trong doanh nghiệp sau 3-5 năm & tăng trưởng chậm. A Đông bảo nên thay đổi tư duy chút sẽ đi nhanh hơn: "nếu em là cô gái đẹp, thì nên biết tô son thêm sẽ đẹp hơn, sẽ được nhiều người khác để mắt đến hơn & nâng giá trị của mình lên".4. Một cái cây muốn phát triển nhanh hơn & bền vững đôi khi phải biết hi sinh/cắt đi những cành lá gây "cồng kềnh" & ảnh hưởng đến sự phát triển của chính nó. Nhiều mô hình DN gặp vấn đề về mặt scale up, hoặc khi lớn lên/khi có nhiều khách hàng hơn thì biên lợi nhuận giảm vì sự cồng kềnh trong khâu vận hành.5. Khi bàn về vấn đề nhân lực giỏi, mình có đề cấp đến background & năng lực học tập trước đây của các bạn. A Đông giải thích, "Tại sao bọn giỏi chúng nó lại giỏi? (chủ đề này ae thảo luận khá sâu)- Vì sự TẬP TRUNG của "chúng nó"- Vì sự quyết tâm/khát vọng đã hơn rất nhiều những đứa bình thường khác- Vì phương pháp học tập- Vì thói quen/quản lý bản thân/sự chủ động- Vì phát triển đúng sở trường/điểm mạnh- Vì có trang bị các kỹ năng mềm & cứng nhất định- Vì tư chất/năng khiếu/có đầu óc tốt- Vì môi trường ("bọn Ngoại Thương" đầu vào cũng đã là một BỘ-LỌC rồi, nhưng ở đó cũng có môi trường tốt để chúng nó phát triển. A Đông, Nhu (Coolmate) cũng là dân FTU)- Vì khả năng tư duy & giải quyết vấn đề của chúng nó- ...Nên doanh nghiệp nếu thu hút được nhân lực giỏi này về, "đặt đúng chỗ" nữa sẽ phát triển đi xa được. Chơi được với bọn thủ khoa/á khoa các trường top là ngon. 6. Bàn về một số mô hình startup, một số gợi ý "ngon" mà ATP có thể tập trung được.7. Kinh nghiệm làm việc với các co-founders, các nhân lực giỏi ngang tuổi & lớn hơn mình. -> Đó là xây dựng VĂN HÓA TỔ CHỨC & SỰ RÕ RÀNG ngay từ đầu, mỗi người tập trung được THẾ MẠNH của mình & khéo léo kết hợp với nhau. Như case Coolmate 3 co-team là Nhu Phạm (CEO) - Xuân Lan (CMO) - a Hiệp (CTO) kết hợp với nhau rất nhuần nhuyễn. (Mà thực tế theo mình để binh được cơ chế rõ-ràng này cần rất nhiều kinh nghiệm, là TÍNH CÁCH phù hợp/nhượng bộ, tinh thần startup hướng đến mục tiêu chung,... Có vậy DN mới đi xa được)8. Tư duy về việc chọn "game ngon để chơi", chọn mô hình làm startup đúng rất quan trọng. Làm startup cần có sự mới mẻ, sáng tạo riêng. Như case Coolmate có rất nhiều "sáng tạo đột phá" để có được như bây giờ. Tại sao có những DN định giá chỉ vài trăm triệu/vài tỷ, mà có những DN khác lại định giá hàng triệu đô/hàng chục triệu đô? (Nó đến từ tư duy chọn game, và cách chơi game?)9. Founder muốn đi nhanh & xa cần HÀNH ĐỘNG & CAM KẾT (Nhu - Coolmate, là hình mẫu của founder như này).10. Ở góc độ quỹ đầu tư, cũng có những áp lực giải ngân vốn, lựa chọn các startup để đầu tư. Cũng có những quyết định sai, thường là bởi: dữ liệu đầu vào không chính xác, và đánh giá sai năng lực founder. Founder giỏi & "cháy hết mình" với dự án là yếu tố quyết định lớn đến sự thành bại.11. Hỏi thêm về các campaign ngon ở Ecomobi để tạo ra tiền tốt. Cái này dự án ATP Media đang rất cần để tối ưu luôn. Đang có >10tr traffics từ SEO mỗi tháng mà kiếm tiền bèo bọt quá!12. Nếu muốn IPO, phải trả lời câu hỏi "Tại sao phải làm nó?", và "sau 3 năm nữa sau IPO sẽ ntn?". Rất nhiều case doanh nghiệp công nghệ sau IPO đều tệ hơn như: Yeah1, Grab, Uber,...13. Chủ doanh nghiệp & teamwork phải giữ được "lửa" trên hành trình khởi nghiệp. Xây dựng cơ chế & chính sách để đội ngũ có động lực làm việc mạnh mẽ14. Nhiệm vụ của cấp quản lý, nên tập trung vào ĐỊNH HƯỚNG, đào tạo nhân lực. Đào tạo kỹ năng mềm & quản lý cảm xúc khi làm việc của nhân sự. Nó cũng góp phần xây dựng văn hóa đội ngũ gắn kết, các startup rất cần tập trung yếu tố này để giữ người & teamwork có nhiệt huyết làm việc.15. Thế mạnh của các nhà đầu tư thiên thần (Angel investors) như a Đông là xuất phát điểm từ dân làm startup mười mấy năm, không như một số ae làm tài chính sang. Nên có thể hỗ trợ về mặt định hướng, kinh nghiệm & giúp nhiều hoạt động khác cho startup ngoài tiền.16. Làm doanh nghiệp sẽ có hàng nghìn thứ ngớ ngẩn ập đến, vì những thứ nhỏ nhưng nó sẽ ảnh hưởng đến tâm lý của chúng ta. Nên làm sao chuẩn chỉnh ngay từ đầu. Nhất là khâu thuế má/giấy tờ, thông tin minh bạch, mô hình chuẩn chỉnh,... (có kế toán giỏi & thuê dịch vụ luật bên ngoài rà soát các hoạt động đang làm thường xuyên)17. Một vài thông tin về cách định giá doanh nghiệp startup? Cách xây dựng startup ban đầu ntn để dễ gọi vốn?, Cách để bán thành công DN? Lộ trình chuẩn bị cho IPO?,... A Đông vẫn đang chưa có case về IPO thành công, còn lại mấy cái khác hầu như ảnh đều đã trải qua hết & có rất nhiều kinh nghiệm về nó. Trong buổi cafe mình đặt rất nhiều câu hỏi, nhưng buổi cafe ngắn ngủi nên thông tin chưa đủ sâu. Để hẹn a Đông thêm các buổi cafe thứ 2,3 để có thêm từng keys sâu chia sẻ với ae. @@...Sau buổi cafe này, nếu làm dự án nào đó mới, chắc chắn sẽ nhờ a Đông tư vấn "xây móng thật vững" trước để có game gọi vốn win, có startup nhiều triệu đô để chém gió, để showcase viết ebook kiếm tiền lẻ tiếp. kk

    1. As an aside, asking for operating advice from VCs is generally dumb anyway. They’re VCs, not operators. If you want advice on what your company has to look like to be considered valuable, ask the VCs. If you want advice on how to actually do that, you will get plenty of advice that probably has very little applicability. Many VCs were operators once, of course, but the half-life of that knowledge is shorter than you thin

    2. Do not surprise your board members. This sounds obvious, but founders do it all the time. You probably have too. If you use the board meeting as a time to convey new and important information then you are surprising your board.

      #

    3. Boards firing the CEO happens quite often, especially as a company gets larger and more valuable. As Feld and Ramsinghani point out, “by the time the ventures were three years old, 50% of the founders were no longer the CEO.” (p. 145.) Some firms, like Sequoia Capital, even trumpet their propensity to fire CEOs. The fact that early-stage founders continue to take their money has to be some sort of delusional grandiosity, in my humble opinion. “Well yes, they fire half the CEOs they back, but surely not me.”

      #

    4. The VCs are not on your board so they can help you, they can help you without being on the board. They are on your board for one reason: to monitor their investment so they can do something if things aren’t going how they want. Founders have many reasons they start companies, but investors really have only one reason they back them: to make money.

    1. Here are my thoughts: making vim startup time shorter is GOOD added complexity - BAD my main concern is with the complexity that gets added to get startup time improvements. User has to tag scripts, and then manually BundleBind to get scripts loaded. This seems like too much hassle(manual involvement) to me. Fixing 1 time thing (startup) we're adding many more (like BundleBinding required scripts once they're used) For instance in my case i don't start Vim often because i'm using --remote-tab-silent option. So i'll get no benefit along with complexity (

    1. The alternative was to have multiple scripts or stylesheet links on one page, which would trigger multiple HTTP requests. Multiple requests mean multiple connection handshakes for each link “hey, I want some data”, “okay, I have the data”, “alright I heard that you have the data, give it to me” (SYN, ACK, SYNACK). Even once the connection is created there is a feature of TCP called TCP slow start that will throttle the speed of the data being sent at the beginning of a request to a slower speed than the end of the request. All of this means transferring one large request is faster than transferring the same data split up into several smaller requests.

    1. We also have an “anti-overtime” rate: past twenty hours a week, people can continue to work at an hourly rate of 50 percent. This allows us to have a high hourly rate for the highest leverage work and also allows people to work more per week if they wish.

      anti-overtime... love it.

    1. The downside is the installation files are bigger than the traditional Debian package manager (DEB) files. They also use more hard drive real estate. With snaps, every application that needs a particular resource installs its own copy. This isn’t the most efficient use of hard drive space. Although hard drives are getting bigger and cheaper, traditionalists still balk at the extravagance of each application running in its own mini-container. Launching applications is slower, too.
    1. How can you work when an application take a long time to open? even a calculator. On the first opening of writer, i do not have ssd, i have time to drink a coffee when with a deb i can work. Use snap only when it will be as effective as a deb.

    1. the lifecycle of most companies is that they grow by delivering much more value than they charge for, they raise funds based on their growth, and then they make those investments pay off by capturing more value. In its maturity, a company will capture a greater share of the value it creates.

      The deal with pharma, in theory, is that they're given market exclusivity for a limited time to recoup their investment in R&D. With startups, they give us free or subsidized service for a limited time and recoup by exploiting their scale afterwards. Whereas with pharma, their upside is capped, with startups, society's upside is capped.

    1. Leyden aims to address the startup time of Java applications. For monoliths and single applications, Java sometimes took a while to get going, but once up and running, they were fast. “That’s great if your app server is going to run for two weeks or two months or two years, but it’s not that great if you want to run for 30 milliseconds,” said Saab. Server-side software is getting smaller and more distributed, so quick starts are key to fast response times. 

      Sounds similar to the problems that ruby/rails has; and spring/bootsnap.

    1. We once tried an experiment where we funded a bunch of promising founding teams with no ideas in the hopes they would land on a promising idea after we funded them.All of them failed. I think part of the problem is that good founders tend to have lots of good ideas (too many, usually). But an even bigger problem is that once you have a startup you have to hurry to come up with an idea, and because it’s already an official company the idea can’t be too crazy. You end up with plausible sounding but derivative ideas. This is the danger of pivots.

      在求变的过程中,总会有两派行动纲领互为对斥的声音站出来相互抨击。例如当人们谈论「本土」和「外域」时,本土原教旨主义者和全球化开放主义者之间的吵闹声总是尖锐刺耳,但恰恰是在这种极端到偏颇的较量之中产生了张力,推动现世朝着互不偏倚的方向演进,避免了演化成所谓的「分叉」(fork)。 <br/><br/> 有趣的是,即使是处在矛盾两端的反义词也可以互相转化,就像「草食男」也可以被视作「性感」一样,清晰的定义为「模糊另面」赋予了合理性。既然如此,那么像商业应用这么中庸且自制的容器也就更没有理由冒天下之大不韪去自立门户。创业者们不应该用工程化融合的方案看待技术,他们应该用这种视角去审视技术背后的人。

    1. So to a start up founder, timing correctly when to do something is far more important than doing that thing amazingly well

      Words of wisdom - The act of doing should go hand in hand with the act of figuring out when to do something.

    2. "I don't have a system and need to build one."

      It's a POC - GSD and most importantly see what sticks.

    1. ($20*3)-($20*3*.1) = $54

      10% of $2000(cost of camer) * 3days = Rental Price

      Rental Price - Commission = Rental Made This guy totally forgot taxes here.... :)

      54$ for 3 days 365 days a year about 50 % usage so roughly 180 days. $54 for 3 days $? for 180 days = $3240 about 740$ profit per year for a $2000 investment if he's 50% utilized over the year.

      Camera's Man this guy needed to crunch some more numbers. Camera's have compatibility issues....

    2. We should have built the absolute minimum and then manually maintained transactions through the backend if need be. To hell with formality. We were in the business of proving a hypothesis yet we acted as if it had already been proven.

      quick and dirty solution and see if it sticks...

    1.  “Our ‘secret sauce’ is storytelling. Ninety-nine percent of video companies are started by video producers and animators. Splainers, on the other hand, was started by writers and journalists. If the story isn’t compelling, no amount of flashy graphics will save your video.”

      This is the essence of why journalism and writing are important, even for technical people.

      Mi "emprendimiento", mutabiT, muestra varias cosas de la cultura hacker que pueden tener potencial en contextos educativos, empresariales o gubernamentales entre otros, pero sigue alineada a la construcción de procomún y no de lucro para la propia empresa o sus propietarios (como muestran los balances y las apuestas hechas ;-))

    4. ‘hacking’ as quirky-but-edgy innovation by optimistic entrepreneurs with a love of getting things done
