Founders Dilemma_宋牧奇

  1. 1. Founder’s Dilemma: Dream vs. Reality in Entrepreneurial Ventures<br />奇群科技總經理宋牧奇<br />如何創造有市場價值的技術?<br />What Technology?<br />
  2. 2. What’s Technology?<br />
  3. 3. Define Technologies<br />Merriam-Webster dictionary:<br />The practical application of knowledge especially in a particular area<br />The term is often used to imply a specific field of technology, or to refer to high technology or just consumer electronics, rather than technology as a whole<br />We limit the discussion to the consumer electronics, computer software or hardware, and internet technology<br />
  4. 4. Technologies<br />Chinese Clone Phone Factory<br />“Obama have BlackBerry, <br />I have BlockBerry” <br />
  5. 5. What’s the Good Technology?<br />
  6. 6. Define Good Technologies<br />Make it hard for others to reproduce (in the beginning)<br />Pitfalls: You CANNOT just rely on technology!<br />Considerations:<br />High Complexity<br />High Scalability<br />High Performance<br />Backward Compatibility<br />Differentiation<br />
  7. 7. Technologies<br />Chinese Clone Phone Factory<br />Complexity<br />Assembling…basically NO complexity<br />Scalability<br />Linear, depend on number of assembly lines and employees<br />Performance<br />Lots of incomplete functionalities<br />Unstable<br />Compatibility<br />Not bad, since there’s lots of standards<br />Differentiation<br />YES, WE CAN!<br />Competitive Pricing from low cost solution<br />
  8. 8. Technologies<br />Digital Picture Frame Design House<br />Complexity<br />Low to Medium<br />Scalability<br />Leverage on manufacturing partner<br />Performance<br />Limited functionalities<br />Compatibility<br />Photo formats are standardized<br />Differentiation<br />Very competitive (now)<br />
  9. 9. What’s the Good & Valuable Technology?<br />
  10. 10. What makes a valuable technology?<br />Real problem with feasible solution<br />User demand<br />Timing and marketing (Strategy)does matter<br />Execution is everything!<br />
  11. 11. Great Technology<br />Google Search Engine<br />Complexity<br />High<br />PageRank: Larry’s PhD dissertation<br />Scalability<br />Distributed architecture makes it scale pretty well<br />More machines for more loads<br />Lots of Google products are built based on the same infrastructure<br />
  12. 12. Great Technology<br />Google Search Engine<br />Performance<br />Google serves avg. 299.8M queries per day (in 2009/05)<br />3470 queries/second!<br />Backward Compatibility<br />There’s basically no such thing before Google was born<br />“Google Search” as a standard<br />First mover advantage<br />Medium to High Cost<br />System is built by low-end commodity hardware<br />Power issue and bandwidth cost<br />
  13. 13. Where are They?<br />
  14. 14. How to Find the Next?<br />Listen to the customer, listen to the market, and finally listen to the changes in technology, then you could probably predict the trend<br />Try to find the blue ocean <br />and make profit before it turns into red ocean someday<br />Try to solve a hard problem instead of an easy one<br />Technology changes very fast, be prepare to keep up with the pace!<br />Do your homework everyday<br />
  15. 15. Dream vs. RealityWelcome to the Real World!<br />
  16. 16. Real-world Challenges<br />Real-world Timing<br />Technology developments, especially great ones, take some time to get mature and harvest<br />The corresponding market also takes some time to accept new technologies<br />The user might need to be trained and educated, even before your technologies are in place<br />
  17. 17. Real-world Challenges<br />Real-world effectiveness of technology barrier<br />It could be just a small barrier – could be ineffective!<br />Patent is extremely important for high-tech start-ups<br />But not every patent is created equal…<br />Get an experience consultant!<br />Evolve your technology over time<br />
  18. 18. Final Words<br />Good to have, NOT must to have in order to succeed<br />Find your core competence <br />When you have one, be sure to make an detailed and extensive study and analysis<br />Determine Problem<br />Market/Demand<br />Competitors/Alternatives<br />SWOT<br />
  19. 19. Final Words<br />The best way to predict the future is to invent it!<br />What can be imaged can be achieved!<br />
