Thinking About Think Tanks: What Are They and What Do They Do?
Think tanks set out to inform and influence public policy ideas and decisions. And yet, the ways they actually achieve impact or measure progress remain unclear and underexplored. Andrew Selee, the Wilson Center's Vice President for Programs, explores these issues and more in his new book, "What Should Think Tanks Do? A Strategic Guide for Policy Impact."

Crowdfunding for Start-Ups and Small Business
The concept of crowdfunding, seen as the next phase in the democratization of finance, has captured the attention of investors, entrepreneurs, technologists and the media. It can be defined as a means of raising capital for a project or enterprise through the pooling of numerous, small contributions or investments from the public, usually via the Internet. Last year, entrepreneurs around the world raised an estimated $2.8 billion through crowdfunding. The bipartisan Jumpstart Our Business Startups(JOBS) Act, passed in the U.S. in 2012, seeks to open the market for securities crowdfunding, enabling average investors to purchase debt and equity in enterprises ranging from startup companies and mom and pop shops to real estate. Additionally, the law lifts the ban on general solicitation, allowing companies to mass market securities to accredited investors, which could spur a sea change in capital raising. Join us for a discussion about maximizing the promise of crowdfunding while minimizing risks to investors and entrepreneurs.

LinkedIn Speaker Series: Eric Ries on the Lean Startup's Definition of Quality
Eric Ries, the author of The Lean Startup, chats with LinkedIn Executive Chairman and co-founder Reid Hoffman about what quality should mean for entrepreneurs. "Quality is really in the eye of the beholder," Ries says. "For a for-profit company, quality is defined by the customers and what they want. If we are misaligned with the customer about what quality means, then all the extra time we take to polish all the edges and get everything right is actually wasted time because we wind up pushing the product away from what the customer actually wants."

Stanford's Startup Garage Teaches Entrepreneurship
Take an inside look at Stanford's "Startup Garage" class, where students go from concept to company over the course of two quarters. Interdisciplinary teams from across the university work together to develop, prototype and test a new product or service, create a business model, and pitch investors for seed funding. Professor Stefanos Zenios says the class emphasizes design thinking and encourages students to engage directly with potential customers. Veteran venture capitalists Russell Siegelman and Richard Lin help the students hone their pitches. And many students get funding from angel investors and venture capitalists to develop their businesses, and go on to pursue careers as Silicon Valley entrepreneurs after graduation.

What Are The Top 5 Tips For Starting A Trucking Company?
Hello again, Mike Lawrence here from InsureMyRig.com, the premier trucking insurance agent on the web. InsureMyRig.com is your best source for trucking insurance information, fast quotes, and great customer service. Today, I'm going to give you my Top 5 Tips for starting a trucking company! With the nation's economy in full-blown recovery, there are opportunities for smart businesspeople to start their own company, and drive towards the American dream. Startup businesses have a high failure rate, and trucking companies run on thin profit margins. Hopefully, my tips can help you to not become one of those statistics; so, let's go take a look at our list. Tip #1 Start with one or more core customers In the bar/restaurant business, it's said that your regulars are the ones who keep the lights on; they are the ones you count on to pay the bills, and you need to treat them like gold. Core customers, who can promise regular loads and prompt payment are a huge asset; relying on brokers or internet load boards takes up much of your management time chasing loads and money. Use those broker loads to fill in the gaps...but depend on, and work hard to cultivate good core customers. Tip #2 Have 90-120 days operating capital on hand before starting Trucking is not an inexpensive business to start. Truck payments, registrations, insurance and definitely fuel will drain your bank account even faster than my wife can drain mine! Even in a best-case scenario, you will not get paid for hauling a load within 60 days of doing the work; most shippers and brokers pay anywhere from 90-120 days after, and during those days, your wheels still need to be turning. One of the biggest reasons for new venture failure is a lack of good financial planning, so protect yourself from that pitfall and you'll increase your likelihood of long-term business success. Tip #3 Improve your credit rating Speaking of good financial planning...do you know what your credit score is? There are many internet sites where you can get a credit report, such as freecreditscore.com; make sure you check your report for accuracy prior to startup and dispute any discrepancies. Truck dealers, insurance underwriters, and banks will all use your credit score to determine lending and premium rates. A good credit score will make a huge difference in your business's bottom line; and generating profit is a bussiness's primary goal. Get good credit, and keep it good by paying your bills on time, every time. Tip #4 Start Small An entrepreneur, by definition, is a risk-taker; someone who wants control over their future. A smart entrepreneur knows not to take on TOO much...too much risk, too much debt, and too much work! Trust me, as your own driver, manager, bookkeeper and salesman, you will have plenty of tasks to keep you busy in your first 12 months. My advice would be to concentrate on all of those; and not worry yet about hiring new drivers until you've got a very tight understanding and control of your other duties. Besides, no one else is going to take care of your business and your customers as well as you can. Start small, and grow carefully. Tip #5 Pick 3 professional advisers All businesses need outside professional advice; and trucking is a very specialized business. Make sure that your accountant, lawyer and insurance agent all are experienced in handling trucking accounts; this is a bad time to pick your brother-in-law to be your business attorney! All of the outside advisers that you use should be able to provide references of other satisfied trucking clients. Our family-owned insurance agency, for example, has been serving the truck industry for 80 years, and we are members of local, state and national trucking associations. We can provide you with competitive quotes from A-rated insurance carriers, and help to make sure you stay compliant with government regulations. We're the best! That's it for this time around. I hope you find this information helpful; if you have further questions or comments feel free to email me at [email protected] Drive safely out there!

Lean UX for Startups and Enterprise: Ten Secrets to Success
FROM THE 2013 MoDevUX Conference www.modevux.com We have consulted with startups and large enterprises seeking to produce the right product (e.g., mobile app, web application) faster. We will reveal the remarkable similarities between startups and large organizations seeking to be as nimble as startups. In a majority of cases the challenges were the same: - they were not sure how to speed development - they had difficulty balancing user and business needs - they typically had strong development teams with established methodologies that had blended agile and waterfall methodologies - they typically had little user experience expertise or input in the existing designs - designs / development builds were underway but the results of the designs were unsatisfying to users We have done LeanUX design projects with a number of clients continuously testing and honed our process by testing various techniques: - rapid iterative design and improvement (design thinking) - brain storming sessions (design thinking) - design studios (traditional art school critiquing process) - rapid prototyping, usability testing and revision We also want to share the pitfalls as you start to get involved in lean startup including having: - The "genius designer" mentality within the UX team - The "stay in the building until the product is ready" mentality - Different internal groups (design, development) that work against each other - Executives that swoop down and influence (aka hijack) the process - Too little contact between the designers and other team members - Too many chefs leading to poor focus - The anti-cheerleader who always says "No!" Through a series of case studies we will describe the processes and flow that worked best for both large enterprises small startups: - Conducting a strategy workshop to align the team on business and user needs - Rapidly developing personas and scenarios as a team with all stakeholders - Conducting a design studio with all stakeholders to agree on the design directions to explore - Rapidly iterated prototype and guerilla testing - Creating non-technical, but partially functional prototypes through available tools (e.g., Axure, Proto IO, iRise) Nearly every group we worked asked: - Does this work for a company like mine (Startup, Enterprise, Healthcare, Government, etc.)? - What was the composition of the most successful LeanUX teams? Number of team members? Types of expertise? - How did the process differ between Startups and Large Enterprises? Come to our talk and find out our secrets for Lean UX success!

It fosters an environment of entrepreneurship where things can move quickly, be disruptive, be new, and not part of typical corporate culture.

Johnathan Rees | Why The First Legal Steps For Starting-up A Business Matter So Much
“Your objectives and aspirations will influence the form of business structure that you should be adopting.” — They say you'll make most of your mistakes in the first 3 months of business. How you set up your company, what legal status, what type of shares are all big decisions. They are the decisions that we think aren't that important, only to find out years later how wrong you were. So this is important if you're starting up a business. Johnathan provides an informative overview of the legal steps and considerations in start-ups and how objectives and aspirations influence the business structure. He concentrates on the role of the private company and the roles and responsibilities of the individuals within the company along with its ownership, management and exit. Johnathan is a corporate lawyer with commercial law firm Joelson Wilson, based in London’s West End. He is part of the firm’s Food and Drink team which advises companies across the food and beverage, leisure and retail sectors. He advises businesses on a variety of corporate transactions from mergers and acquisitions and private equity fundraisings to commercial agreements. Welsh, and a former rugby player, Johnathan cites an interest in people and their businesses as key to the corporate lawyer’s role.

How to Plan a Menu | Restaurant Business
Watch more How to Get into the Restaurant Business videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/506567-How-to-Plan-a-Menu-Restaurant-Business A restaurant's menu is a very powerful brand statement. In fact, you are what you serve, when it comes to a restaurant menu. The question might be how do you plan a restaurant menu? One thing that's very important to keep in mind is that your restaurant menu will have a very powerful impact on many parts of your restaurant business. It will determine how many people you need in the kitchen to produce the food. It will determine many of your price points. It will determine how your business performs from the point of view of check average. How much is each person going to spend when they eat at your restaurant? And you have a lot of decisions to make when you plan your restaurant menu to make sure that it delivers what you want it to in terms of your idea. In terms of how you want the restaurant to feel for the guests and for your staff. One of the first questions you're going to ask yourself is: How does a restaurant menu embody my idea for my restaurant? If you want to have a southwestern cuisine restaurant, pretty obviously, you need to have a menu that delivers that kind of food. You also want to know how many items you're going to offer your guests. Will you expect them to order a la carte, individual items from the menu, or will you expect them to order what's called "prix fixe", or a fixed priced menu, where they spend one price for multiple courses. All of this depends on the style of your restaurant, the level of service, the level of price that you're expecting your guests to pay. When you're working on your menu it's important to start asking yourself, what is the guest going to think when they see this menu? They may see your menu online. They may see your menu for the first time when they sit down in your restaurant. What are they going to feel? What are they going to think? Are they going to say "Ooh, I want that!" or are they going to be overwhelmed by too many choices? Does the menu make them feel comfortable? Does it make them feel excited? Does it make them feel bored? Does it make them feel overwhelmed? How does the guest feel about the menu and the items on it? Also, what does the menu say about your concept of food? Do you provide seasonal ingredients? Or are you the kind of restaurant that's serving asparagus in December? Do you serve local produce or you serve everything under the sun? It's very important to think like a guest when you're planning a menu. What are the choices I want to make? What are the choices I want to have and how are they going to affect my enjoyment of my meal? Another important thing to know about planning a menu is that a menu should not be something that's engraved in stone and never changes. You need to change your menu and you need to create a menu that you expect to change. There will be dishes that will be more seasonally appropriate. You're not going to sell a lot of beef stew in August in New York City. You need to think about what do people want to eat at different times of year? What is appealing to people at different times of year? Now, if you're really lucky, you'll have a dish that people love so much they come back for it. What you would call a signature dish. A dish that people say, "Oh. I've got to go to that restaurant because I have to have --that--". Well, people become very attached to those dishes. So there's an interesting balance to find. You have to add new things to keep the excitement for your regular guests. You have to hold on to those signature dishes that people keep coming back for again and again. Change your menu seasonally. Think about signature items that people will associate with your business. And keep it fresh. Add new things to keep people interested in your menu.

What is a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) for a Startup
A Minimum Viable Product has just those features that allow the product to be deployed, and no more. The product is typically deployed to a subset of possible customers, such as early adopters that are thought to be more forgiving, more likely to give feedback, and able to grasp a product vision from an early prototype or marketing information. It is a strategy targeted at avoiding building products that customers do not want, that seeks to maximize the information learned about the customer per dollar spent. "The minimum viable product is that version of a new product which allows a team to collect the maximum amount of validated learning about customers with the least effort." The definition's use of the words maximum and minimum means it is decidedly not formulaic. It requires judgment to figure out, for any given context, what MVP makes sense. Depending on your industry and your competition MVP might be different. Releasing and assessing the impact of a minimum viable product is a market testing strategy that is used to screen product ideas soon after their generation. It is facilitated by Rapid Application Development tools and languages common to web application development. The MVP differs from the conventional market testing strategy of investing time and money early to implement a product before testing it in the market. The MVP is intended to ensure that the market wants the product before a large time and monetary investment is made. The MVP differs from the open source methodology of release early, release often that listens to users, letting them define the features and future of the product. The MVP starts with a product vision, which is maintained throughout the product life cycle, although it is adapted based on the explicit and implicit (indirect measures) feedback from potential future customers of the product.

Debt VS Equity : How to choose the right startup funding structure?
Cash is a big portion of making any company successful, but not always do the founders have enough cash to fund their business. In this episode we will talks about whether you should get loan (debt) or sell equity to raise funds for your business/startup. You are going under Debt whenever you take loan that you promise to pay back. You are giving away equity when you sell part interest in the company in return of some funds. This video defines the difference between debt vs equity, discusses various advantage & disadvantage of going one way or the other. When should companies choose debt over equity or vice versa. Raising the right kind of capital is very important, and can change the future of the company or your stake in it. So consider very carefully which way would be ideal for your scenario.

What is PR
PR stands for Public Relations, yet many people don't really understand what the term actually means. A good definition for PR is that it's the reputational vehicle by which your company becomes well-known and well-respected. Companies really start to understand PR when their reputation is in danger. When your reputation is at risk, you can't compete, you can't sell and you can't pay your bills. It's very scary. So why should you be proactive in your PR? By incorporating a PR strategy into your marketing and sales process, you'll be able to see four things. Number one, a better return on investment for your marketing dollars. People that are already familiar with you are more receptive to your marketing message. Number two, a lower cost per lead. An educated consumer is much easier to attract. Number three, you'll see a speed up in your sales process. Educated and familiar consumers are much faster and easier to close. And number four, more business overall. More people reaching for you, more people calling you, more people interested and comfortable in doing business with you. People want to spend their money where they're sure -- where they're sure they're going to get a good product, where they're sure they're going to be taken care of. They're hanging their hat on your reputation. Marketing is supposed to sell. Sales is supposed to sell. But people don't want to be sold. They want to buy. PR puts people in the mind frame to buy. Sources that they consider credible, whether it's the news, whether it's a key influencer, whether it's a V.I.P. or even a celebrity -- that tells them that you're experts, that you know what you're doing. It gives them stories about how your services and products have helped other people just like them. When they get that information, they believe it. It's a third party endorsement and they know you set the tone of how great you are. And that's the reason why they should buy from you. They're more receptive and more comfortable and more willing. That's how you put them in the mind frame to buy. Your battle today is battling for consumers' minds. PR is your tool to use to break down the reactions and the emotional barriers that people have to being sold something. PR fuels your marketing and it boosts your sales and that's your leverage in the new economy. Visit www.jotopr.com
