Oliver Samwer: Management-Stil bei Rocket Internet - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Kultur der harten Arbeit [...] könnte den Brüdern aber gerade bei der Rekrutierung von leistungshungrigen Nachwuchsmanagern nutzen: "Man hätte denken können, dass die Berichterstattung zu der 'Blitzkriegs-Mail' sich negativ ausgewirkt hätte - aber das Gegenteil war der Fall: Auf potenzielle Mitarbeiter und Geschäftspartner wirkte das besonders engagiert", sagt Joel Kaczmarek, Autor des Buches "Die Paten des Internets" über die Samwer-Brüder. "Das Image von Rocket wirkt anziehend auf Leute, die arbeitsintensive Umfelder suchen." [...] Andererseits locke das Image Leute an, die bereit seien, vollen Einsatz zu geben. "Und es schreckt die ab, die man sowieso nicht haben will." [...] "Rocket sucht Soldaten, keine Kapitäne. [ << Beneficial/Works for Copy Clone Werkstatt Only. But not for small teams that break new grounds. ] [...] "Außerdem versprechen sie sich damit eine Abkürzung zum Erfolg." [ short-sightedness - illusion about Career Ladder ]

Rocket Internet vor Börsengang in Grafiken - SPIEGEL ONLINE
""Die Emittentin [Rocket Internet AG, Anm. d. Red.] wurde von Oliver Samwer, dem derzeitigen Vorstandsvorsitzenden der Emittentin, mitgegründet und ist weiterhin auf seine Führung angewiesen. Interessenkonflikte zwischen Oliver Samwer und uns können entstehen, und es kann keine Garantie dafür übernommen werden, dass Oliver Samwer uns weiterhin seine Zeit und seinen Arbeitseinsatz widmet."" [...] Fazit: Wer Aktien von Rocket Internet kauft, setzt allein auf die versprochenen Wachstumsperspektiven. Die Substanz des Unternehmens kann die hohe Bewertung nicht annähernd rechtfertigen. Eine Geldanlage nur für Zocker. +!+

Zalando und Rocket Internet: Doppel-Coup der Samwer-Brüder - SPIEGEL ONLINE +++ Cap table of Rocket Internet and Zalando - +++ "Rocket plans to pursue an IPO by the end of the year on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. Rocket noted that current shareholders would not be selling in an offering [for 1year] that is expected to consist of only new shares. [...] [T]he company was shy to disclose its profits, which can be thin or nonexistent in the world of online retail. One source familiar with Rocket’s figures noted that it costs the company about 60 million euros ($78 million) a month to keep its network of startups in operation." +++

Deutschland und seine Gründer – ein gestörtes Verhältnis - WSJ Tech - WSJ
Leider aber schwang in der Reportage auch das mit, was in der deutschen Gesellschaft allgemein verbreitet ist: Eine Skepsis gegenüber dem Internet und insbesondere allen, die damit auch noch Geld verdienen wollen. [...] [D]ie etablierte Wirtschaftspresse in Deutschland tut sich häufig noch schwer damit, die Start-up-Ökonomie zu begreifen. Als in einem Artikel über den abflauenden Berliner Start-up-Hype in einem großen deutschen Wirtschaftsmagazin der Satz „Selbst vor Pleiten ist die Berliner Internet-Community nicht mehr gefeit“ fiel, sorgte das in Deutschlands Start-up-Szene für kollektives Kopfschütteln. Pleiten gehören zu jeder Start-up-Ökonomie dazu, ebenso wie große Verluste in der Wachstumsphase. Ohne Pleiten, Risiko und Verluste entstehen weder Googles noch Facebooks. In der ZDF-Reportage war leider auch wieder die Art von deutscher Überskepsis deutlich zu sehen, die mit dazu beiträgt, dass allzu schnell aus Deutschland wohl auch keine Facebooks oder Googles zu erwarten sind.

currently there is no plan b, bc there is no planet b. how do you adapt to rapid change. Hurricane Sandy - was only a tropical storm, 13ft storm surge "Climate Change is here." Storm Surge - 2013/14 UK has been a victim too. >> Climate change deniers are sponsored and supported by the lobby of the Fossil fuel industry. Fossil fuel industry is the strongest most powerful political lobby industry in history, followed by Wall Street and big Pharma. *Christian Parenti // Koch Industries - Koch Brothers have huge interest in keeping the petrochemical industries they own, running.
