E27 Unconference 2009   Rafer E27 Unconference 2009 Rafer Presentation Transcript

  • Market Opportunity, not Magic Scott Rafer, @E27 Unconference 2009
  • Losing unique status
  • Startup Capitals by 2015 London + Tel Aviv Beijing + Shanghai
  • Startup Capitals by 2020? Bangalore Buenos Aires Singapore
  • Critical mass
  • Success builds on founder success
  • Defining success
  • Defining two exceptions
  • Too unlikely
  • Too little benefit to founders
  • It’s just math
  • A few million $ of revenue
  • $ A few /user/year
  • Small % penetration in years 1 to 3
  • Huge audience required
  • $ * *
  • $2 * 3% * 50M = $3M Just for example
  • Market size matters most
  • Only China is big enough
  • English-speaking countries Europe + Middle East Latin America South Asia Southeast Asia *Japan and Korea are different
  • DVD DRM Regions
  • Back to Friendster
  • Capture 1 or 2 regions
  • Very rough examples to show early scale
  • $2 * 5% * 200M = $10M Boring and linear as we like it
  • $__ * 25% * 200M = $__M Huge penetration, but multiplying by zero?
  • $2 * 2% * 200M = $8M Scaling from Slovenia
  • $3 * 5% * 200M = $15M Nailed the model & acquired fast
  • Copy the German cloners!
  • Simplicity is all
  • Be late or be boring
  • Directories
  • Customer Lists
  • Analytics
  • Assemble and Sell Data
  • Happy to help as I have time, @rafer
