When it comes to new technology and advancements, not many people would connect that sector with the industry of sports and entertainment. Of course, there’s always the TV or smartphone you can watch matches on, but today we aren’t talking about that type of technology. We are rather looking at the newly-introduced advancements that 15 years ago would have been considered a method of cheating in professional sports, and how come nowadays we simply cannot live without them.

As some of the readers may be aware of, sports isn’t always about talent and skills; it is also about data and statistics. In every single sport there are different statistics, ratios, probabilities and so forth, which illustrate how successful a player is performing.

When was the last time you saw someone that needed your help and actually went over and helped them? Or when was the last time you were in need of a hand and someone actually came and gave you one? I won’t be surprised if you can’t remember.

Don’t worry, this isn’t some type of morality lecture or a tell off on why you didn’t help the elderly lady cross the street the other day. …

On 5th of December at Techspace Shoreditch, we had our final event of 2018!

The atmosphere at the venue was truly festive so getting to know all of you was like a Christmas present 🎁. Hearing the latest technological innovations and new ideas was very inspiring. So, thank you for coming and we look forward for greeting you in 2019! We already have a date for LNT #44, so make sure to RSVP a spot for yourself and few for your fellow entrepreneurs there.

So, how was LNT #43?

Very engaging, by the look of our audience. They are listening to Rob Gorton, founder of CrowdMnA who was our headliner speaker and sponsor. He realised a problem of founders who are willing to leave their businesses for different reasons and made an online platform which connects sellers and buyers. He already secured several deals and we are looking forward to hearing more of Rob’s success, thanks for presenting! …

The first follower is what transforms the lone nut into a leader.
- Derek Sivers, the co-founder of CD Baby

Idea, tick! Research, tick! And then what?

I hope you are not thinking of doing it alone! A co-founder can make or break your venture and it is very easy to get it wrong. Don’t worry though, even the biggest entrepreneurs get it wrong sometimes.

Take Steve Blank for example. The cause of his biggest failure was a mismatch between the founding team and the business model. He did not have a co-founder who was a gamer nor anybody that had worked in a game company in his exec team. It resulted in $35m loss for Rocket Science Games. …
