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!

Posted on October 23, 2007. Filed under: design, fast, Life, Lucky, technology, think, VentureOfMine |

hello

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:

You’d be crazy to choose anyone else. These guys are a delight to work with. Very efficient. Always on time and budget. Very smart. Focused on demand generation.”
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 Never Worked For Me (Board = Bored)

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).

[GrandDaddy me is just hoping that Linus will never hear about it – and not hurt himself 😉 – how wacked am I… Also thinking seroiusly about buying a helmet for bicycling…]

TED & “a world stuck in fast forward”

Posted on April 20, 2007. Filed under: dna, learn, see, slow, smarter, technology, ted, think |

ted

I have been watching more TED video – then I have watched television the last 3 weeks – its amazing. Highly recommended is: A Voyage of DNAThe 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. Good Good Job – Mr. /Mrs. Marketing of BMW..
