industry-specific solutions are the wave of the future and a key part of what Google is building for our customers

tom kershaw

while devices and apps get most of the attention, data storage is every bit as important, particularly as objects like phones, tablets, cars and thermostats become appendages of the Internet

Correlation Ventures just released a study that shows the distribution of outcomes across over 21,000 financings and spanning the years 20014-2013.
Based on their data, a full 65% of financings fail to return 1x capital. And perhaps more interestingly, only 4% produce a return of 10x or more and only 10% produce a return of 5x or more.
All of this math simply underscores how important winners are to venture returns and how difficult it is to find them.

Weight of Love takes place in the beautiful serenity of a beach; however all isn’t peaceful. the film stars supermodel Lara Stone, who plays the head mistress of a cult of women who live in a lighthouse.  the women live and work on the beach, performing creepily in sync exercises and throwing their arms rapturously into the sky as Auerbach’s scorching guitar solos echo in the background.

Watch it here >

have a vision for what you are trying to do

andrew chen

use data to validate and help you navigate that vision, and map it down into small enough pieces where you can begin to execute in a data-informed way.

don’t let shallow analysis of data that happens to be cheap/easy/fast to collect nudge you off-course in your entrepreneurial pursuits.
