From Silicon Valley to Europe and back again.
In 3 startups.
Guillaume Decugis
Co-Founder & CEO, Scoop.it
#mystartupstory
@gdecugis
In ‘94 I went to Stanford and, being
French, this is what I expected
@gdecugis
Of course this is what it actually was
@gdecugis
Upon graduating in ’95, big question:
lifestyle or startup?
@gdecugis
Went for lifestyle but…
I couldn’t help hearing the music
’95 ’97 ’00
The first Mobile
Music Platform
@gdecugis
Exercise: calculate the odds of success
for a startup…
+ Launched in 2001 i.e. between the Internet
bubble burst and 9/11
On an idea that required
3G and multimedia phones
… that eventually hit the
market in 2004
In France a.k.a. the Silicon Valley of
Wine, Cheese and Luxury
brands
= 0.0000001% said a lot of VC’s
@gdecugis
We couldn’t raise money so we took it
from the only possible source
Customers = $$$
@gdecugis
To do that we had to innovate constantly
2002: mp3 ringtones
2004: full-track downloads
2005: smart radio
@gdecugis
We finally met success
• Late 2002, we painfully raised $5m
• 3 Months later, we realized we no longer
needed them by becoming profitable
• We grew to $35m revenue / 200 FTE
• Late 2005, Openwave acquired Musiwave
for $121m (and sold us back to Microsoft
late 2007)
@gdecugis
Why not being in Silicon Valley didn’t
matter
• Carrier relationships (local, regional)
• Music labels deals (local, regional*)
• Mobile phone manufacturers (regional*)
*back then
@gdecugis
Was that just luck or can I do it
again?
@gdecugis
Back in 2007, we had a great idea for
Mobile Internet
@gdecugis
But so did Steve Jobs
AppStore launch: July 10, 2008
@gdecugis
We iterated the product
Became a social news reader
@gdecugis
We failed
• Distribution
• Business Model
• Stickiness
• Fat Startup
@gdecugis
In 2010, we decided to pivot
We had learned a lot
We had identified a pain point in social media
We had trusting VC’s
We had burnt little cash so far
We had built a scalable social media platform
And…
@gdecugis
We had built a great team!
@gdecugis
Back to (entrepreneur) school
@gdecugis
Information Overload:
A big problem and a big opportunity
Whoshould
I listen to?
How can I
beheard?
@gdecugis
The Interest Graph: where Social
Discovery meets Search Relevancy
relevantnoisy

Search
Social Graph Interest Graph
@gdecugis
We became Scoop.it: a new way to
organize and share ideas that matter
• A publishing platform optimized for
content curation
• A big data semantic technology
connecting content and people around
interests
• A quickly-growing community of curators
who develop their online visibility faster
Scoop.it
@gdecugis
3 Share
2 Enrich
1 Discover
Your content curation hub
@gdecugis
Publish once. Be discovered
everywhere.
Search Engines
Newsletters
Blogs
Social Networks
@gdecugis
This time we found product/market
fit
Monthly uniques
Year-on-year
growth
7MM
5x
@gdecugis
Why we moved to Silicon Valley
• Social Media early adopters & influencers
• Partner with the ecosystem
• Halo effect to other markets
@gdecugis
These however were not reasons
• Raising money
• Recruiting engineers
@gdecugis
So what are the take-aways?
@gdecugis
@gdecugis
Roller-coasters are fun…
@gdecugis
… or not.
@gdecugis
Sometimes, the real risk is not taking
any
@gdecugis
Teams >>> Ideas
@gdecugis
Super powers not required.
@gdecugis
Enjoy the ride!

From silicon valley to europe and back again. In 3 startups.

Editor's Notes

  1. And it was better!
  2. Eventually decided to go back to Paris kind of forgot about doing a startup…But after a few years I finally did
  3. Caught between giants, innovation was our only added value.
  4. TRANSITION: so this is the first part of my story but after having been successful once, I wanted to see whether it was just luck and I started another company.
  5. TRANSITION: so this is the first part of my story but after having been successful once, I wanted to see whether it was just luck and I started another company.
  6. I didn’t actually go back to school but it felt like I had to re-learn everything and meeting people in SF really helped.
  7. But I guess it all depends on the VC and job market in your own area.
