How to Improve Airport Experience

Anyone else hate flying? I’m not talking about the fear of flying. I mean the arsing about for 2 hours at both ends. I mean the tedious faffery that inevitably accompanies a journey - whether 1 hour or 24. I mean the soul-sucking seven course ‘meal’ comprising: taxi, security, Pret A Manger, gate, seat, passport control, taxi.

Entrepreneurship as an Art - How Artists and Entrepreneurs are Similar

The business of start-ups and the creation of art have nothing obvious in common. They seem as different as chalk and cheese. Even when we picture them in our minds, we see suits and offices for one and galleries and colours for the other. The results are obviously very different but the similarity is in terms of their creators. The artist and the entrepreneur have more in common than meets the eye. While their work and work environments often differ widely, their inner workings run along the same lines.

The Future of Artificial Intelligence in Business

The tech industry is abuzz over the announcement that IBM (Watson) and Salesforce (Einstein) will integrate their artificial intelligence platforms. While some may see this alliance between two giants as a bit concerning, I see this as a positive sign, and a sign of big things to come in terms of AI for business.

Dear Start-Up Founder in India, It is Not the End

A large percentage of Indian start-ups stare failure in the face within months or years of launching. The money has run out or the co-founders disagree or the investors are backing out because of the lack of profits.

Miles in which we will see the what, why and how of failing start-ups and look for sunshine and hope in the darkness of these challenging times.

Computing Power Is More than Speed

Mark Twain would undoubtedly be able to identify with Gordon Moore—or, more specifically, the “law” that the founder of Fairchild Semiconductors and Intel devised more than 50 years ago. In Twain’s case, his death was “greatly exaggerated.” In the case of Moore’s Law, its so-called death is more irrelevant than overblown.

After All, In The Darkest Nights Shine the Brightest Stars

Investors were knocking on the doors of the Karts and Deals that sold similar products in the same old ways with the same old styles. I asked myself what it was that investors saw as their valuations rose and their salaries doubled and tripled. Was discounts and undercutting all that mattered in the e-commerce industry? Did uniqueness not matter at all? Flawed business models, bad decision making, getting carried away like kids in a candy store and much more did not seem to faze investors. While, here I was with an e-commerce company that was pushing a unique idea with innovation and more but I was still not getting the kind of pull that regurgitated model was.
