How to Raise Funds for New Projects ?

In Uncategorized on July 18, 2010 by Vivek Rp

If you have a small business and want to start new projects, then you will probably require additional funds.

Unless you have a rich parents who has left you a large amount of money in their will (and most of us don’t), you’ll need some more reliable, traditional ways to raise financing for your new projects.

1. Banks

You can raise funds by taking out a loan from a bank. You ought to approach different banks and not just your own.

With that said, some banks are more flexible in their loan requirements than others. If you have property or stock that you can use as collateral, then you may be required to do so, especially if your business has a limited or spotty credit history. Generally, banks prefer property to inventory.

You will also have to submit copies of your previous tax returns, as well as details of the new projects that you want financing for. If your tax returns indicate that you made a healthy profit in previous years, it will be relatively easier for you to secure a loan, since banks also look at your ability to pay back the loan when considering your application.

If your credit and profit history are good, you can also get an unsecured loan where you will not have to submit anything as collateral – but the rate of interest on that loan will be probably higher. You could also take out a short-term or long-term loan, depending on your needs.

2. Venture Capital

If you cannot get funds from a bank, then you could try sourcing funds from venture capitalists. Venture capitalists are people or companies who provide funds for new projects or to start up companies in which they see potential and that have the potential to pay handsome returns.

To get venture capitalist funding, you will have to convince them that they are making the right choice (we’re talking about profits here) by funding your project. The only problem is that they might become part-owners of the project, and they could end up controlling it if they feel that you are not up to the job or that they will get better results by executing the project.

Once you start earning money from your project, it is a good idea to pay back the money as soon as possible and exit from your venture capitalist agreement.

3. Friends and Relatives

If you have friends or relatives who can lend fund your new projects, then this may be a viable option, as it will involve the least amount of paperwork and inconvenience. You will still have to pay them a decent amount of interest on the loan amount.

It is still wise to simply take a loan from them and not make them partners or co-owners, as you might lose independence in your style of executing the project. You might also get more flexibility in repaying the loan.

As an incentive to secure the loan, you could also promise your friends or family a percentage of your profit margin. That way, if you earn more, they will get a better return on their investment in your project.

However, this is a debatable issue because it may not be wise to mix business with personal life. Be careful and make sure terms are clear and documented before proceeding with borrowing from friends and relatives.

4. Go Public

If your project is of a bigger nature, you can go public. You will need professionals to assist you in doing this. Shares of your company will have to be offered to the public though an IPO (i.e., Initial Public Offering). This initial sale of shares will help raise money for your new projects.

The people buying these shares will become co-owners of your company. Keep in mind that this route will only work if your company is relatively larger, with a few big projects planned in the near future. For smaller projects, the previous 3 routes are better options.

At least one of the above ways will ensure that you get the financing that you need.

On June 11, it will be exactly five years since Michael Arrington hit the ‘Publish’ button and published the very first TechCrunch post (which was a brief profile of blog search engine Technorati, which Mike apparently labeled a real-time search engine at the time – what’s old is new again, right?).

#FollowFriday : The Anatomy of a Twitter Trend

In Uncategorized on May 4, 2010 by Vivek Rp

What if you didn’t know who to follow on Twitter Twitter Would you randomly start following people? Would you follow people you see mentioned by those you already follow? Most likely you would ask your friends for recommendations since you can trust that your friends will suggest people who are worth following. Which is exactly how FollowFriday began. In mid-January, FollowFriday began with a simple tweet: The idea is to think of interesting people you already follow and recommend them to others. Mykl Roventine suggested the hashtag #followfriday, and a few friends (Chris Brogan, Erin Kotecki Vest, Aaron Brazell and Jim Kukral) helped spread the word. On the first FollowFriday, there were almost two #followfriday tweets per second at its peak.

#FollowFriday: The Trend That Kept Trending

By Saturday morning, there was no trace of FollowFriday. A one-off fad, perhaps? Then late the next Thursday night, suddenly #followfriday tweets began to appear in foreign languages! It seemed that FollowFriday was back. Now, every Friday, people suggest other people to follow. Here is a chart of the hours that #followfriday trended each week since it began: What’s interesting is not that #followfriday trends for the full Friday each Friday, but that the bottom of the spikes have begun to spread out. Meaning that #followfriday is beginning to spread into Thursdays and Saturdays, US time. In other words: #followfriday is international.

Why #FollowFriday Works

FollowFriday is successful because of three main factors:

1. It’s easy. It takes little effort to send a tweet, something people do dozens of times a day. 2. It’s participatory. You don’t need to be part of the “Twitterati” to participate. You can suggest one person or 100 people. You can get endorsements from one person or a hundred people. 3. It’s karmic and it feels good. It’s a great feeling to simply say, “I think this person is great. You should follow them.”

#FollowFriday Tools & Resources

Some great sites have begun to crop up around the concept of FollowFriday. Scott Lemon created a site called which analyzes who is “endorsing” and who is being “endorsed.”
Brian Roy
collected thousands of tweets on FollowFriday and determined that more than 32,342 recommendations were made and more than 16,083 Twitter users were recommended. Now Brian has a tracker to follow FollowFriday (you can also track FollowFriday on Twitter Search ( )). Even Jesse Stay of SocialToo has begun to look at reporting on FollowFriday statistics at the user level within his product. Simply, FollowFriday is a strong example of a crowdsourced recommendation engine, which will always provide better results than an automated one. Twitter Grader, for example, currently lists Guy Kawasaki as the #1 Twitterer (as opposed to #28 on TopFollowFriday), and only 2 Twitterers in its top 25 have less than 10,000 followers. With the addition of trust, recommendation systems tend to excel over purely algorithmic systems. Of course, like any system, FollowFriday has its faults. There are no categories, nor ranking systems or even a guarantee that you will actually like following the people recommended. Twitter has recently begun to make waves around becoming a search engine that allows for quick understanding of a topic or delivering an immediate response. In many ways, FollowFriday shows what happens when the Twitter community is asked a direct question: “Who do you think your friends should follow?”

What’s Next for #FollowFriday?

It will continue to be what it is, a crowdsourced recommendation engine for Twitter followers. It will occur weekly and spawn similar efforts . Beyond that, FollowFriday shows that there is a real need for trusted content (or people) discovery, and that, on some level, a crowdsourced recommendation engine does serve that purpose. Twitter could realize the power of the people that use its product to create revenue streams and opportunities by simply using the product as intended. What are you doing? I’m suggesting people follow @oxitech , @vivekrp , @hiqhost . How about you?
