  • 4. ARIADNE CAPITAL What’s in a Name? <ul><li>Ariadne was the Greek princess who helped Theseus get through the labyrinth with the golden thread </li></ul><ul><li>That’s what we do with our companies – we help them navigate and negotiate their labyrinth </li></ul>
  • 5. FOLLOW THE ENTREPRENEUR ‘The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena’ “ It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasm, the great venture and spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”  - Theodore Roosevelt
  • 6. ENABLING BUSINESS 2.0 What did we learn from SKYPE? <ul><li>New Products and Services gain traction through Consumer Adoption first and then get picked up in the Enterprise </li></ul><ul><li>Smart entrepreneurs segment their potential customer base and their addressable market by characteristics other than geography; ie early adopters of broadband, high mobile penetration etc </li></ul><ul><li>People are living more and more of their lives online </li></ul><ul><li>Giving people a more frictionless, efficient way to communicate matters. </li></ul><ul><li>Initial free services establish consumer behavior and then can lead to a business model </li></ul><ul><li>Great marketing trumps great technology </li></ul>
  • 7. “ Assume Innovation Occurs Elsewhere” <ul><li>BILL JOY </li></ul><ul><li>Co-Founder Sun Microsystems </li></ul>
  • 8. “ Innovation is Difficult to Sell” - ISAAC NEWTON Physicist & Mathematician
  • 9. WHAT WILL THE FUTURE BRING Entrepreneurship as Engine of Growth <ul><li>The next wave of large European-founded companies will be built by serial European entrepreneurs </li></ul><ul><li>Cycle of innovation is increasing and shortening </li></ul><ul><li>Globalisation is softening the edges of economic cycles </li></ul><ul><li>Start-ups will be acquired earlier and remain more autonomous inside firms </li></ul><ul><ul><li>EMAP/WGSN </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Yahoo/Answers.com </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>NewsCorp/MySpace </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Last.fm/CBS </li></ul></ul><ul><li>ROI for M&A will be recalculated and rethought </li></ul>
  • 10. THE OPPORTUNITY FOR LEADERSHIP Entrepreneurship, Internet and Capitalism <ul><li>Capitalism was about empowered authority which didn’t necessarily activate the citizenry; the Internet stands that on its head, and shifts the power to the Individual – making Individual Capitalism the force of the 21 st Century </li></ul><ul><li>- Iqbal Quadir, one of the founders of Grameen Phone </li></ul>
  • 11. WHAT ENTREPRENEURS DO INSIDE COMPANIES They Get Out and Create a Market Storm <ul><li>Entrepreneurs, if they're good, have the best insight into how particular markets are developing. They are in the &quot;eye of the storm,&quot; dealing every day with how markets are dynamically evolving. </li></ul><ul><li>Entrepreneurs also think differently. They see things that others don't. They feel compelled to make stuff happen, often simply because they see something that doesn't exist yet—and should. </li></ul><ul><li>Sometimes that blind faith leads to catastrophe, but more often, entrepreneurial insights eventually turn into step changes in how industries operate. </li></ul>
  • 12. IS M&A THE NEW R&D? probably <ul><li>If a large company acquires an entrepreneur's insight and innovation, it has the opportunity to get ahead of rivals and own the step change. </li></ul><ul><li>Time and time again we have seen that the benefits of market disruption and dislocation accrue to the first few players who embrace it. </li></ul><ul><li>Put another way, if a market disrupter is acquired by the entity he or she has the most potential to disrupt—and the acquirer embraces, rather than smothers, the disruption—it can be extremely value-enhancing. </li></ul><ul><li>Especially compared with the alternative. </li></ul>
  • 13. What is needed in this world of fast innovation by the CIO and his/her team? <ul><li>The Knowledge of how to manage risk in working with and deploying applications from companies who may not have £5 m on their balance sheet </li></ul><ul><li>The Ability to explain the “enabling” side of the business for the CEO so that it isn’t a black hole </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Strategy without technology cannot be world-class </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The CIO interprets the company’s strategy with technology – a technology architect – just as the CFO interprets the company’s strategy from a financial point of view – the financial architect </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The Reach into Best Practices so that the CEO knows they are not reinventing the wheel </li></ul><ul><li>The Ability to build community in a changing organisation </li></ul>
  • 14. Morse as Strategic Weapon Managing Risk <ul><li>Mid-size Systems Integrator </li></ul><ul><li>Previously Known for being a Sun Reseller </li></ul><ul><li>Work well with Hyper-growth companies </li></ul><ul><li>Partnership of Entrepreneurs </li></ul>
  • 15. Key Lessons Learned From Business 1.0/2.0
  • 16. Lesson One Ecosystem Business Models win <ul><li>Technology being used to redistribute the economics of content industries </li></ul><ul><li>Not so different to the Screen Writers Guild Strike in Hollywood </li></ul><ul><li>Why Monitise will be the mobile banking solution for the next generation – they take care of all parties in the transaction </li></ul>
  • 17. Lesson Two We’re in an Attention Economy <ul><li>This is why Curation Matters </li></ul><ul><li>And why subscription services may play a role </li></ul><ul><li>But most likely content will be free, and contextual advertising will be the business model </li></ul><ul><li>Acute Transparency trumps anything else </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Now Public </li></ul></ul><ul><li>You have to work with people’s interest so align your business model to consumer behavior not protecting old industries </li></ul>
  • 18. Lesson Three Long Tail of Social Media is Long <ul><li>No shortage of bandwidth </li></ul><ul><li>Explosion of new economies of production </li></ul><ul><li>Community and UGC based content being interwoven in our lives, ranging from music to videos </li></ul><ul><li>Social networking and microblogging sites will jockey for your attention </li></ul><ul><li>Mobile Advertising will continue to struggle; go/slow approach due to tiny, low-resolution screens of mass-market handsets and operators’ fear of alienating subscribers </li></ul><ul><li>Contextual Advertising makes the Long Tail of Social Media viable </li></ul>
  • 19. Lesson Four SME as a Channel to Market and a Market <ul><li>The consumerisation of technology which hit a peak with SKYPE, yields the B2C2B Go to Market Strategy trend </li></ul><ul><li>Managed Services dominate; SaaS is not just a buzz word </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Critical Success Factor for SpinVox </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The move to hosted applications for the majority of organisations now seems to be a case of “when” and not “if” </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The SME's day has finally come </li></ul><ul><ul><li>SaaS will have the greatest impact on companies and vendors alike in the SME space </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>SME has always been tough for the IT and telco industries </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Advent of relevant, inexpensive, easy to use business applications that work with very little IT knowledge or support cost will result in the computerisation of the SME </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>SME IT spend is expected to be up 8 to 10% over the coming years </li></ul></ul>
  • 20. Critical Success Factors For Business 2.0/3.0
  • 21. CRITICAL SUCCESS FACTOR 1: Be as Unreasonable About Success as an Entrepreneur <ul><li>Entrepreneurs have a view of the market and/or a consumer behavior, which drives them to bring an innovation to life. </li></ul><ul><li>Like becoming a Parent, if they knew what it would REALLY entail, they would think twice. </li></ul><ul><li>That leads them to be paranoid, and feel that they are in a race against time. </li></ul><ul><li>Which makes them learn how to: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Act with Imperfect Information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Never assume they control time </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Never give up – tied to their identity </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Expect Success </li></ul></ul>
  • 22. CRITICAL SUCCESS FACTOR 2: You Know More Than You Think You Do <ul><li>Don’t just trust your instincts but listen, hone and refine your instincts </li></ul><ul><li>Determine what your “Unfair Advantage” is and Do More Of That </li></ul>
  • 23. FACTOR 3: INVEST IN THE SUCCESS OF OTHERS Today’s World is an Ecosystem <ul><li>The Businesses with Business Models which enhance and grow the ecosystem will win </li></ul><ul><li>Abundance Mentality </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Focus on being a Net Contributor to the System rather than a Net Taker, and what you find is that your Sphere of Influence over the System increases </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Focus on Long-Term Relationships </li></ul>
  • 24. FACTOR 4: BE RADICALLY OPEN TO THE WORLD <ul><li>Bill Joy, the former CTO and guru from Sun Microsystems, “assume innovation occurs elsewhere”. </li></ul><ul><li>Build reliable means to continually pull in what’s relevant and potentially threatening to your business </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ We have to be in many places and get signals sooner,” Henning Kagerman, SAP CEO in the WSJ </li></ul></ul><ul><li>“ We’re not in the dialogue” – Nokia Senior Executive </li></ul><ul><li>Small things can indicate that large change is about to happen </li></ul>
  • 25. FACTOR 5: EXACT ACCOUNTABILITY <ul><li>Management is the search for accountability. Who is doing what, by when, why, and how, and most importantly, what happens if they don’t? </li></ul><ul><li>The best entrepreneurs and executives are both leaders and good managers. </li></ul><ul><li>There are no bad Lieutenants, Sergeants, Captains – there are only bad Generals </li></ul><ul><li>Trust is Efficient – Trust but Verify </li></ul><ul><li>Economies who trust spontaneously develop and progress more rapidly – Francis Fukuyama </li></ul>
  • 26. FACTOR 6 – CREATE THE CONDITIONS OF TRUST SO THAT GREAT THINGS CAN HAPPEN <ul><li>Trust is efficient; leadership is about: </li></ul><ul><li>creating the conditions of trust, and the combination of </li></ul><ul><li>building counter-cyclically, </li></ul><ul><li>paying attention to small change which indicates that large structural change is about to happen, </li></ul><ul><li>seeking out inefficient markets, and </li></ul><ul><li>investing in the success of others, </li></ul><ul><li>leads to businesses that are both valuable and sustainable. </li></ul>
