Dubai & Me & Tariq Shaikh

rht-dubai.png

I here to meet with my fantastic partner Tariq Shaikh. He is one of my very most smart and interesting partners – and his for the last 14months been setting up a very special private equity company – something I cant really go deeper into – but you can see on the website and beneath. Its a really REALY big idea – and very hard for my micro patience – but I cant wait until we can tell more…

“RHT Partners is a private equity firm that brings together top calibre investment management professionals, entrepreneurs and prominent financial backers from Europe, the Middle East and the US in a firm dedicated to creating value through carefully considered investments in selected industry sectors. RHT’s values are grounded in high ethics and its investment decisions focussed on generating industry leading returns.”

I have spend most of my time with Tariq – and he also introduced me to some of the real Dubai natives (whom you NEVER MEET) – and I must say I have been extremely positivly impressed and suprsed how much energy and power and vision – there is behind this GROWTH EMPIRES PEOPLE!

I Never Worked For Me (Board = Bored)

Posted on September 30, 2007. Filed under: nerve, people, see, talent, Technologi, think, Weird Stuff | Tags: , |

A Record Label for Board Members or Maybe lets call it and Activist Commitment Agency:

Making a 360 board activist

concept for companies with

8-20 world class international

board members in a record label

like setup.

Full serviced and managed.

During my busniess life – i have never been in a board or close to a board that really worked and moved the business and supported the business to really win/perform/change… Off course its mainly because Im personally so unfocused and low on attention span and bad at details – but I really feel a need for at new way of doing this. And I have decided to LAUNCH a BoardLabel or BoardAgenzy for my own companies/investments (maybe open to others)- so that they will get THE BEST BOARDMEMBERS  and BE AS FIT AS POSSIBLE. I think its about being Activist and Acting instead of talking – so I really hope this will fly. I just hired the most powerfull person to run it – and cant wait to tell you more. Only note is – that I really think the Danish Discussion about Cooperate Governance is SICK AND DESTRUCTIVE – specially for smaller companies – so maybe it will be REBEL BOARD LABEL or EXCLUSIVE?

PS. THIS IS NOT EXECUTIVE SEARCH – I JUST HATE THAT WORD MORE THEN BAD BREATH.

*I stole the term “RecorbLarbel for” from N. Reffstrup (the artist formerly known as Navne).

Mind Dump and Fighting

Posted on July 3, 2007. Filed under: Blogger, family, Life, talent, ventures |

Anit Paros
Dear Valued Readers
Sorry – that I have not been posting so much lately – but off course there are various reasons.

Politics and Impact
Over the last month – I have found myself eating and winning and talking with the top advisor’s (not just consultants) to Nicolas Sarkozy, Angelina Merkel and Hillary Clinton – and even though my only goal is to sracts the surface – and find out whats behind the power structures – I have gotten a little bit struck.

Architecture and Impact
I have spend time with some very very high impact developers and architects – and same story – I got a bit overwhelmed – due to the LONG TERM impact this stuff has. Psoting from Iassons unbelievable villas in Anti Paros

Investments and Impact
I have gone into nearly 75 companies and 95% goes very well – and Im not very needed there. Some would think that I did a smart move – but basically my luck has again striked – and even double since the entrepreneurs and companies who does very well – like me pretty muc hbecause I dont interfere.

Family and Impact
I  got  over my trouble in december – and spring has been very very good. But now reality and normallity has kicked in again – and I find it a bit difficult. And maybe Im just pushing the speed to much ?

Water and Impact
My water project – is now has interest from the most influencial people in the world – and one of the biggest industrial players in the sector. And again – I´m really really starting to feel HUMBLE – that I cant help to get such traction – after near bankruptcy in January.

Summer
This season is NOT my favorite and I really fight with handling my own expectations to life and holidays… Darn I think I think to much – but maybe thats normal for people who promotes Act – don’t talk 🙂

apol

I just understood (a bit of) http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/apollo/
sorry to be so late 🙂

Im sometimes sorry not to be a techie – then I could play with this without having to bribe friends. Im looking at a interesting company now – and to really undferstand it – my friend Erik Xyz (he does not like references) is doing some due diligence – a therefor send me this Adobe Apollo Demo Video – and this from good old Lynda

My friend Allan Pichler did already start mumbling about this 6 months ago – but I was blank – Im actually very often late. But this things is THE KILLER TOOL for all students and 1-2 Mann Armies who wants to do an app or a small bizz. Im looking forward to see killer app and good execution on this stuff from cratives, designers and highIQ programmers – hopefully in colaboration.

Tommy (CEO @ Zyb) is the proof of investeing in people and gutfeeling. I meet Tommy summer 2005 – thanx to Nicolaj Refstrup – and I was 100% convinced that I wanted to work with him after 5min. Now – nearly 2years later- one time bankrupsi – he has proven to be a FANTASTIC LEADER – and inspiration to the now 20 people working at Zyb. And Zyb has been awarded best startup in Denmark and Red Herring Top100 European company. And Tommy is still only using 20% of his potential 😉 – I FUCKING LOVE IT !!!

Posted on March 17, 2007. Filed under: bizz, buz, Fun, talent, Venture Capital, VentureOfMine, Weird Stuff |

hopeOne of my startups is VERY SUCCESFULL – but it takes a positivist to get it:

They make NO MONEY
They use 200.000€ every month
Their product is free
They will go technically bankrupt in may

Wierd – weird – They are a TOP 100 Company in Europe
– and the team is amazing – and will succed and EVERYONE wants to finance them.

Im thinking a lot about what the Big Plan is – when you are involved with 50-60 ventures. And it looks more and more like having something to do with revenue…
