- Founder Focus: Apprentice winner spills the beans on startup success - Startups Magazine Issue #13When it comes to tapping into the entrepreneurial mindset to mine some golden nuggets of inspiration for business growth, who better to speak to than a winner of the BBC’s Apprentice. Therefore, when we had the opportunity to speak to 2014 champion Mark Wright, founder of Climb Online and the CLIMBCON business event, we jumped at the chance.
- Falmouth focus on founders - more than sun, sea and pasties - Startups Magazine issue #5Some startups' definition of exploring is closer to Cairo than Cornwall, but don't be fooled, this West Country haven might just be the next tech hub hotspot. Startups Magazine's Joe Bush talks to Ben Sewell, Lead Software Engineer, at Launchpad, a post-graduate incubation and acceleration programme developed by Falmouth University.
- Equity raising with Crowdcube - Startups Magazine issue #6As a startup, once you have nailed down the vision that you want to bring to market, perhaps the last thing you want to do is give some of your fledgling company away. However, if you’re starting a business and are not generating any revenue, or you have no assets to borrow against, you’ll probably going to get a short shrift from a bank if you approach them for a loan. Patrick Ryan of Crowdcube talks to Startups Magazine's Joe Bush about how equity crowdfunding can help.
- Entrepreneur pressure and wellbeing - Startups Magazine issue #7With figures showing that 70 new businesses are created in the UK every hour, it's clear that the UK (and London in particular), is a highly competitive and pressurised market place. However, startup success or failure is often viewed purely from a business perspective, but what impact does it have on the individual behind it - the founder and entrepreneur? Joe Bush talks to Christina Richardson, Co-founder and Chief Firestarter at founder-wellbeing ecosystem We Are 3Sixty.
- Crowdfunding with Kickstarter: Are you going to follow the crowd? - Startups Magazine issue #6By far the most well-known crowdfunding platform is Kickstarter. Coming up to its ten year anniversary, the Brooklyn-based company has seen over $4bn in pledges since its 2009 formation and has successfully funded over 150,000 projects.
- Disrupting the 'big players' - Startups Magazine issue #5If you’re a startup planning to enter a market awash with already established players, then you could do worse than to take a leaf out of Huib van Bockel’s book. Formerly of Red Bull, van Bockel is the founder of energy drinks company Tenzing, which he set up in 2015 as an alternative to the artificial energy drinks that existed on the market, that are heavily based around synthetic caffeine, artificial mood boosters, and of course, plenty of sugar.
