How Legal Immigration Failed Silicon Valley | TechCrunch
Our immigration system hinders entrepreneurship, innovation and productivity. Success in the tech industry, where whole new job categories are created overnight, requires deep familiarity with trends, products and technologies. Learning opportunities abound — if you’re willing to transition to new roles, educate yourself, work on different products or switch companies altogether. Building your own startup, or even joining one, can be the best career move; it offers remarkable potential for growth by wearing multiple hats in an expanding organization. The labor market benefits from this flexibility not just with an improved and adaptable workforce, but also one that creates jobs. The immigration process impedes all these possibilities. [...] [ reset process when switching companies ] [...] And that’s not even the worst part. If you get laid off, you must leave the country. Immediately. [...] Try telling your VC you spent $25,000 of their $1 million funding on immigration fees

Survivors | Bothsides of the Table
Failure. To most people it smells. People are afraid of it. It’s like cancer or divorce. When you have it you find you who your true friends are because they’re the ones who double down on helping, on being available, on listening, on understanding. Most people run from failure or disease because they’re hard to handle. Hard to know how to deal with. Awkward. But I am attracted to those who have had severe set-backs in life because it tells you something about the mettle of the person with whom you’re dealing. It reminds me of a famous quote in one of my favorite novel’s “Damage” by Josephine Hart “Damaged people are dangerous. They know they can survive.” [...] closed up shop at the very first hurdle. I wouldn’t work with him again. [...] Honor is what I’m looking for. How you failed is significantly more important than if you failed.

Anti-Angel-Gesetz: Auch die CDU schießt gegen Schäubles Pläne | Gründerszene
Die Lage ist schon jetzt nicht rosig. Die Zahl der Unternehmensgründungen geht zurück – die Liquidationen übersteigen bereits seit 2012 die Neugründungen. Zudem sind die Wagniskapital-Investitionen rückläufig. „Die wenigen Risikokapitalgeber jetzt zusätzlich durch drohende Gewinnbesteuerungen von einer möglichen Investition abzuschrecken, ist äußerst kontraproduktiv“, [...] Das Finanzministerium verteidigt sich. Bei der Reform gehe es darum, ein Steuerschlupfloch zu stopfen, das durch Änderungen bei der Dividendenbesteuerung im Jahr 2013 entstanden sei. Außerdem gebe es weiterhin einen Steuernachlass für Investoren in Startups. [ ja und die grossen konzerne? ] [...] Um den Startup-Standort Deutschland attraktiver zu machen, fordert der CDU-Wirtschaftsrat eine Etablierung von Wachstumsfonds für Startups und einen verbesserten Zugang zu Wagniskapital.

Auch sie hält es für wahrscheinlicher, nach San Francisco zu ziehen als zurück nach Deutschland. Eine Zeit lang habe sie zwar Jobs bei Startups in Berlin gesucht – aber niemand habe genug Geld gezahlt. Für ein Unternehmen mit einer starken Idee hätte sie das vielleicht in Kauf genommen, sagt sie. Aber: „Ich hatte damals den Eindruck, dass viele Startups in Deutschland nicht international skalierbar sind, oder sein wollten, und habe deshalb schnell das Interesse verloren.“ [...] Am Ende war Berlin der Standort, wo wir am meisten Entwicklungspotenzial gesehen haben.“ Es sei spannend, dass das Startup-Ökosystem in Berlin noch relativ jung ist [...] lobt die noch „sehr junge“ Berliner Szene. Die deutsche Stadt habe wahrscheinlich das „am schnellstwachsende Ökosystem Europas.“ Er ist überzeugt: „Wir werden hier sicherlich bald das Zentrum für Internet-Startups in Europa sein.“ [ copycats and wantrepreneurs chasing small ideas ]

We kept moving further and further into south-east London, until I felt I needed to leave entirely. I’m part of a big exodus; I know many people who have moved from east London to south-east London and then to Berlin. [...] Agora is one of many “co-working hubs” that have sprung up in the city, created for the ever-growing startup community (by 2020 an estimated 100,000 jobs are set to be generated by Berlin startups). Agora is one of many expat bubbles, catering to the ever-growing number of digital nomads. [...] I was just exhausted all the time.

Thoughts on Microsoft acquiring Berlin's 6Wunderkinder
[5x] Second of all, the purchase price range reported by the WSJ is very broad. There’s a world of difference between selling a company that has raised around $25 million in capital for $100 million or for $200 million – for the founders and its financial backers, no matter what stage they’ve invested in. [...] I agree with people who said this is a great deal for the early investors, the company’s founders, and the Berlin startup ecosystem in general. There’s absolutely no question that it is. At the same time, I can’t help but think 6Wunderkinder could (should?) have been bigger and bolder. [It is and will not be a unicorn, duh, if it were it would have shown. probably traction, m/m growth (incl churn) did taper off below double digit space while everything else stayed the same.] // My Q. from the posted cap table; It seems employees do not get a piece of the cake.

Berlin And Tel Aviv Should Work Better Together | TechCrunch
There are a lot of startups in Israel that have an immense potential, while Berlin is full of venture capital looking for deal-flow. So why are there almost no European investors in success stories like Meerkat? Why do barely any Israeli startups consider European money? And looking at investors actively looking for deal-flow in Israel, where is Berlin’s Early Bird, Point Nine Capital, Atlantic Capital? Where are the London-based VCs that are most active in Berlin like Index Ventures or Accel Partners? At the same time the Berlin investor community is eagerly looking for deal-flow as far away as Silicon Valley, when amazing companies are built just in front of our European noses. Israel is just three-and-a-half hours away. It’s as close to Berlin as Spain, and certainly much closer than America. From the perspective of a Berlin founder who got to know the Tel Aviv tech community, something here doesn’t make sense.

Why Silicon Valley Will Continue to Rule — Backchannel — Medium
“You can’t really understand what is going on now without understanding what came before.” Steve Jobs is explaining why, as a young man, he spent so much time with the Silicon Valley entrepreneurs a generation older, men like Robert Noyce, Andy Grove, and Regis McKenna. [...] He who lives to see two or three generations is like a man who sits some time in the conjurer’s booth at a fair, and witnesses the performance twice or thrice in succession. The tricks were meant to be seen only once, and when they are no longer a novelty and cease to deceive, their effect is gone. History, Jobs understood, gave him a chance to see — and see through — the conjurer’s tricks before they happened to him, so he would know how to handle them. [...] To invent the future, you must understand the past. [...] the Valley’s past matters today and that the lessons of history can take innovation further.

The Facebook Effect (On Real Estate Prices) | TechCrunch
The Wall Street Journal had a story on this yesterday: space is so tight that tech companies are paying north of $90 a square foot in Mountain View. Those are Manhattan skyscraper prices for 1980s-era suburban office parks. It is like running the entire industry on the physical equivalent of MS-DOS. You can either scale the physical infrastructure of the region or you can move the jobs. I favor doing both, but it seems obvious that the world is on an inexorable path towards mass urbanization and that the type of creative and collaborative work done in the industry today favors density. The younger generation in tech understands that in a knowledge-based economy, the value of what is created in Silicon Valley both economically and culturally is in the network.

Further: We've reached a new media visibility high that attracts the wrong kinds of people (trust fund kids with safety net). AND TechCrunch and Co Reporting of just Funding Rounds and Product Updates are not a realistic portrayal nor reflective of Start-up struggle and hustle and sick-to-the-stomach issues.

Bayern: McKinsey sieht bis zu 40 Prozent der Jobs bedroht - SPIEGEL ONLINE
40 Prozent der Jobs im Freistaat befinden sich demnach in einer "Gefährdungszone". Der Grund: Sie seien von den Folgen der Digitalisierung und weiteren Strukturbrüchen betroffen. Eine der Kernthesen der Untersuchung lautet, dass die klassischen volkswirtschaftlichen Parameter, in denen Bayern gut abschneidet (etwa Bruttoinlandsprodukt, Produktivität, Arbeitslosenquote), nur bedingt als Zukunftsindikatoren geeignet seien. Sie würden "lediglich den Erfolg der Vergangenheit bewerten", so McKinsey. In dem Bericht werden deshalb andere Kennzahlen herangezogen: Stabilität (u.a. Einkommensverteilung), Innovation (u.a. Bildungsqualität und Start-up-Quote), Diversität (Integrationsindex, Bildungsmobiliät), Internetzugang, Nachhaltigkeit (Gesundheits- und Vorsorgequalität, Ressourcenproduktivität). // Economic Indicators are about the past! Period. Wall Street cottage industry of economic forecasters.

A deep dive into the Amsterdam tech startup ecosystem
Startup Amsterdam: can the Dutch capital catch up to Europe’s top startup hubs, London and Berlin? // [...] For one, I have learned that there’s a lack of serial entrepreneurs pumping cash and knowledge back into the local ecosystem in the form of angel investments and consistent mentoring. I also believe that, while accelerators such as Startupbootcamp, Rockstart and ACE Venture Lab do a fine job of picking and challenging promising young startups, I don’t think they are truly equipped to handle the influx of young local and foreign talent booting up their companies in Amsterdam. [...] There was also agreement in the local community about the fact that growth capital (Series B and beyond) is extremely hard to come by domestically, forcing founders to look for investment elsewhere to scale up. [...] and decidedly one of the key issues in Europe.

Startup Ecosystems Take Time
I made the same point last week to Laura Rich of Fast Company who is doing a piece on startup ecosystems. I think it is good to think about decades when you think about the development of new startup hotbeds. [...] So back to new startup ecosystems developing in europe, asia, and elsewhere. It can happen and it will happen. But it takes time. And you can't fast forward because we are talking about experience which can't be manufactured. You simply have to put in the time.

London’s Startups Hit A High Of $682M In VC Funding In Q1 2015 | TechCrunch
In other words, if London is leading tech investment in European startups, Europe still has a very long way to go before getting anywhere close to the size of the U.S. market for tech, both in terms of businesses and those willing to back them. Still, the market has come a long way when you consider that in 2010, London startups raised a mere $101 million.

Berlin ist und war keine Weltstadt - Kommentar - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Berlin boomt und zieht immer mehr Touristen aus aller Welt an. Das verleitet seine Politiker zu einem folgenschweren Irrtum: Sie glauben, Berlin sei eine Weltstadt - heute und schon immer gewesen. [...] Ein Einwand vorneweg: Bewohner von wirklichen Weltstädten haben es nicht nötig, ihre Heimat als Weltstädte zu rühmen. Weder in New York, noch in Paris oder London gibt es an einem prominenten Ort eine Ausstellung, in der auf der Großartigkeit der Stadt herumgeritten würde. [...] Die Weltstadtlegende wurde gestrickt, nachdem 1945 alle Ambitionen unter Trümmern begraben waren, als das geteilte Berlin zu einer surrealen Sonderheit mutiert war. Auf beiden Seiten der Mauer befeuerten nun Minderwertigkeitskomplexe den Größenwahn.

Rund 100.000 neue Arbeitsplätze sollen bis 2020 in Berlin entstehen, prognostiziert die Studie.

Foreign Founders Should Look Beyond Silicon Valley | TechCrunch
Put your start-up tent up at expensive places = less runway for your start-up = competitive disadvantage (burn rate). To get a MVP minimally viable product out the door, you don't need a $120k/y full-stack dev, for 90% of "ideas," Start-ups fail because they run out of time (= money to pay bills) to find traction, the formula for their "idea." Sure, there are bad ideas. But sometimes you need time to fix all the problems and test and optimise etc etc. A marathon of sprints. // "Burning Money For The Roof Above Your Head" &! So Silicon Valley is an extraordinarily competitive and expensive place to hire; the risks are high for you as a founder – and yet you have to hire faster than you ever have. Candidates are gone if you don’t catch them in a day. &! RE TECHCITY UK - RETS ARE ALREADY WAY UP IN THE AREA AND LONDON IS EXPENSIVE. AS IS NY. AND LA IS AWEFUL, always in the car and the pollution. // http://techcrunch.com/2014/04/14/sf-housing/
