23 and Me – is so interesting when you think about it for a minute. Ad off course just the act that its a Googlewfe behind it – kind of gives another dimension. Off course Ester Dyson is in as investor/help 😉 – (ED you are amasing!)Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 6 so far )

STATEMENT: I FEEL SO LUCKY
But I do wonder quite a bit about how networks and circles starts and goes on. Le Web 3 – makes me first wonder: “How the fuck did I get on stage again (after Mountain Partners, Sime (fantastic), TechTour (no good)…) – since I dont really have anything to say – specially since I cant tell my secrets and where I expect to make the next 100mio). Well I really try to be direct – and no bullshit (but then again full of it) and as honest as posible. But the I start thinking about the full circus – Lois, Martin, Danny, Tariq, Ola, Mygdal… And wow – its a closed loop – and maybe we are already a part of an old boys network in some form. And Im sitting of a loose mandate – so I can be kicked out any day – and I know Loic is busy doing his startup (Seesmic) – so he probobly havent been thinking about it every day… BUT what I want to say it – that I really hope to meet new and fresh people at Le Web 3 (attendend list in the end of site).
One Guy is missing
– there is a secret SUPERSTAR VC in Europe – Henrik Albertsen from Nordic.com – is the best these days – but keeps too low profile. A risktaker and a sales mann.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 2 so far )
HelloGroup is going really super well – and I cant help it – I just love that kind of optimism when you see people suceed – that smiles get wider and the selfconfidence just boots the people – ad off course you can see that FOCUS and the winner instanct. I LOVE IT.
Seems like the clients do as well:

Jeroen Veth, CEO Zecco Trading – http://www.zecco.com
“Hello Group worked closely with Zyb on developing our site and product offering. The team is talented, skilled, flexible and delivers on budget. Highly recommended.”
Tommy Ahlers, CEO ZYB – http://www.zyb.com
Here should have been one more endorsement but the client has to improve it

I invested in these guys 18 months ago – and it was classic – all was amazing when I came in XuQa – and then we saw a change in the market. Normal kids – sorry but they are – would have started crying and bitching – but these guys just changed their business and found a new angle – reinvented themselves from being SocialNetwork – to becoming a leader in Virtual Currency…. No crap – no complaining – it just happened over night and bang now revenue is flying in and Im feeling even more lucky!!! Thanx to these Pakistani WUNDERKIDS!
After being psycho aggressively investing in the last 4 months – deploying 10mio€ into 20 companies I have found a person and a company (structure) where I will spend all my time and focus for the next 6 months. Its all about financial services for ordinary people – a bit like Zecco (the unbelievable success with now 50.000 clients). I think there is an insane and enormous potential. I will off course tell you much more – when I can.
And yes I dare to think that we can create millions of happy clients and billions of value.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 6 so far )

I have been watching more TED video – then I have watched television the last 3 weeks – its amazing. Highly recommended is: A Voyage of DNA – The Secret of Succes In 8 Words (must see) – Slowing down in a world built for speed (must see for parrents). I cant wait to get there for the next show… (If I can get in and its not too 1998’ish).
PS. I think the BMW ad/sponsorship – is the best placed sponsorship I have ever seen – I think I will run out and buy one – all hyped on on the knowledge – that I just got – and that I know connect to the BMW brand.
