12 steps to raise fund for your start up

Raising capital can be argued to be a fundamental act of any organisation more so for any startups. Often the founder of these startups spends most of their time, energy, and efforts in developing strategies to attract funds and in the process to approach angel investors, venture capitalists, attending conferences (to promote their business and with the intent of impressing some key individuals to join their organisation as an investor). These founders spend many hours pondering over an approach by endlessly refining their business plans with the hope of procuring some capital. However, it is not as straightforward as few may think. The prime intention behind this essay is to empower startups to rethink their game plan, develop strategies and go out into the market with the right attitude and a fair amount of structure that could enable them to identify their potential investors and provide them with what they might be looking for in a prospective investment-worthy venture. There are 12 steps that need to be looked at by budding entrepreneurs, perceiving these steps as a guide upon which they could engineer their capital acquisition strategy. However, I would like to argue that these 12 steps are not exhaustive, because there is never a tried and tested strategy. Every game is different and every players react differently in the field. Step 1: It always starts with an ‘Idea’. Having an idea is not enough to attract funds. You will need to dig deep into your idea, breaking your idea into parts with the intention to identify what is ‘unique’ about it. What solution are you providing and to...

Apple Watch to hit Indian store shelves on 6 November

Apple Watch to hit Indian store shelves on 6 November

Apple Watch to hit Indian store Apple India website now reveals that the Watch is all set to enter the Indian market just ahead of Delhi on 6 November. Though the availability details are out, the company is still tight lipped on the prices of the various Watch models. The smartwatch was announced last year in September, and hit store shelves in April this year in most countries. Launched in three variants – Apple Watch Sport, Apple Watch and Apple Watch Edition – and two sizes (38 mm and 42 mm), the Apple Watch starts at $349 that is approximately Rs 23,000. The prices go way upwards up to $17,000 that is approximately Rs 11 lakhs. Apple Watch is the first new product category to be launched ever since Tim Cook took over the reins of the company after Steve Jobs stepped down. It is also the first new device category since 2010, when Apple entered the tablet market with its iPad. Apple Watch serves as a timepiece and can be personalised with watch faces ranging from traditional analog such as the Chronograph face, Modular face, animated butterflies and jellyfish on the Motion face. It goes beyond telling time with specialised functions on the watch face such as the sunrise/sunset, upcoming calendar events or daily activity level. Users can simply swipe up from the watch face for ‘Glances’ that quickly show you information you care about. It could be anything from weather forecast and current location to the music you’re listening to. For health and fitness, it comes with the Activity app that gives simple visual snapshot of your daily activity with three rings that measure active...
This machine produces the largest humanmade waves in the world

This machine produces the largest humanmade waves in the world

Largest Humanmade Waves Dutch scientists are making waves—big ones. A new experimental facility at Deltares, a research institute here, has begun producing the largest humanmade waves in the world. Like kids building sandcastles below the tideline on the beach, scientists will let the walls of water crash on dikes of different designs and other structures—sometimes until they’re destroyed. The Delta Flume, to be inaugurated on 5 October, is a 300-meter-long water-filled trough that is 9.5 meters high and 5 meters wide. At one end sits a gigantic metal plate called a wave board; four pistons move it back and forth to whip up the kind of waves that the sea can unleash. The waves travel along the flume and crash onto whatever researchers have built at the other end—which could include a novel type of dike, an artificial sand dune or gravel beach, or a pylon used to hold up an offshore wind turbine. The flume is largely inspired by Holland’s historic battle against the sea. Half of the nation is below sea level and a 1953 flood killed more than 1800 people, which is why this small country is obsessed with keeping its 3000 kilometers of primary flood defenses up to date. But Deltares hopes that foreign researchers, governments, and private contractors will also find their way to the Delta Flume, says Marcel van Gent, who heads a team of 35 scientists and consultants at the institute. “It’s a very nice facility,” says Javier López Lara, a coastal engineer at the Environmental Hydraulics Institute “IH Cantabria” in Santander, Spain. He predicts that the wavemaker will be “of great...

New technique to detect magnetic fields inside stars

Magnetic Fields Inside Stars Scientists have for the first time developed a way to determine the presence of strong magnetic fields deep inside pulsating giant stars by using a technique similar to medical ultrasound. Magnetic fields have important consequences in all stages of stellar evolution, from a star’s formation to its demise. Now, for the first time, astrophysicists are able to determine the presence of strong magnetic fields deep inside pulsating giant stars. Researchers used asteroseismology – a discipline similar to seismology – to track waves travelling through stars in order to determine their inner properties. “We can now probe regions of the star that were previously hidden,” said co-lead author Matteo Cantiello, from University of California Santa Barbara’s Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP). “The technique is analogous to a medical ultrasound, which uses sound waves to image otherwise invisible parts of the human body,” said Cantiello. Cantiello’s curiosity and that of his co-authors was sparked when astrophysicist Dennis Stello of the University of Sydney presented puzzling data from the Kepler satellite, a space telescope that measures stellar brightness variations with very high precision. The data were explained by the presence of strong magnetic fields in the inner regions of these stars. The puzzling phenomenon was observed in a group of red giants imaged by Kepler. Red giants are stars much older and larger than the Sun. Their outer regions are characterised by turbulent motion that excites sound waves, which interact with gravity waves that travel deep into the stellar core. Magnetic fields in the core can hinder the motions produced by the gravity waves. “Imagine the magnetic...
Galaxy Looks Like After A Cosmic Collision

Galaxy Looks Like After A Cosmic Collision

This Is What A Galaxy Looks Like After A Cosmic Collision Forgive this barred spiral galaxy if it looks a little messy. It’s the survivor of a galactic collision that bent and twisted the galaxy’s original shape, according to astronomers. This is NGC 428, and although it’s 48 million light years away from Earth, this Hubble image brings it much closer. It’s so detailed that you can see entire other galaxies in the background, if you look closely. The darker areas in the image are streaks of interstellar dust, and the bright pink and red areas are clouds of glowing gas where new stars are blazing to life. There’s a lot of star formation in progress in NGC 428, thanks to the same collision that left the galaxy with its warped, messy shape. When two galaxies collide, their vast clouds of interstellar gas are forced together, creating intense pressure and heating. The heat and pressure kick start the process of star...

Creating wonders at the age of 16!

Creating wonders at the age of 16! Do you know who is competing with Google CEO Sundar Pichai and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella? He is a class 10 student and at the age of 16, he designed a personalised search engine that claims to be as high as 47% more accurate than Google. The search designed by Anmol Tukrel, an Indian Origin Canadian citizen, is said to be about 21% more accurate on an average. Imagine what he can do next? He has just completed his 10th grade, and made the search engine in a couple of months, reported the Economic Times. He said it took him about 60 hours to code the engine, as part of his submission into Google Science Fair. The fair is a global online competition and is open to students aged between 13 and 18 years. “I thought I would do something in the personalised search space. It was the most genius thing ever. But when I realised Google already does it, I tried taking it to the next level,” said Tukrel, who was in India for a two-week internship programme at Bengaluru-based adtech firm IceCream Labs. Tukrel’s tinkering kit: A computer with at least 1 gigabyte of free storage space, a python-language development environment, a spreadsheet program and access to Google and New York Times. Is this search engine accurate? To find its answer, he limited his search query to this year’s news articles from The New York Times. He created several fictitious users with different interests and corresponding web histories. Tukrel then fed this information to both Google and his interest-based search engine....

Microsoft says one of its biggest bets is years ahead

Microsoft has announced that Power BI — its tool for helping businesses make sense of their huge-and-growing storehouses of data without the help of an IT pro or developer — will be generally available on July 24 (though it’s had plenty of customers using it in a paid preview for months now). Power BI Power BI was the first product released by Microsoft after CEO Satya Nadella after he took the reins last year, and he’s repeatedly pointed to data management and analysis as a major focus area for the company. Since then, the company has promised that it was “tripling down” on the product. The opportunity here, says Power BI product leader James Phillips, is to establish Microsoft as the leader in cloud-based business analytics, a market where there isn’t already a single runaway success story. “We see it as an opportunity to grow the business analytics market by ten, a hundred, a thousand times,” Phillips says. Sales force came out of nowhere to dominate legacy players like Siebel with its browser-based customer relationship management (CRM) technology, and Workday may have disrupted People Soft, but the same phenomenon just hasn’t happened with analytics, Phillips says. Microsoft stands poised to make that happen. So while high-profile startups like Tidemark, Tableau, Good Data, and most recently Domo (recently valued at $2 billion) all claim to make it super-easy to take huge stores of data and visualize them, none of them have Power BI’s ease of use, Phillips says. A major point of pride at Microsoft is that you can get started and get productive within 5 minutes of creating your...
Sundar Pichai: Google’s rising star reaches the top

Sundar Pichai: Google’s rising star reaches the top

Is Sundar Pichai Google’s rising star to reaches the top Last weekend, one of the most glittering alumni of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Kharagpur did not show up to give a school prize as he had promised. Sundar Pichai, then head of product at Google, begged off for reasons that became abundantly clear over the next few days: he had just been promoted to chief executive, and he had work to do. The tech industry has seen its share of strange corporate maneuvers, but Google’s realignment this week has to be among the strangest. The company pulled off a sort of upside-down merger with itself, in effect creating a holding company called Alphabet that runs a mega-profitable company called Google on the one hand and a dozen other money-losers and long-odds bets that Google has called “moonshots” on the other. “This new structure will allow us to keep tremendous focus on the extraordinary opportunities we have inside of Google,” Larry Page wrote in a blogpost that surprised the entire industry. “A key part of this is Sundar Pichai.” Married with two children, Pichai projects the image of a passionate nerd, but without any of the sociopathic egotism that plagues Silicon Valley executives (and their underlings). It’s a skill set that has made him one of tech’s most eligible executives. “He certainly has close friends but he is not political,” said Christopher Sacca, founder and chairman of Lowercase Capital and formerly Google’s head of special initiatives. “That’s one of the keys to his success. Everyone knows where they stand with Sundar and they aren’t worried about watching...
