    Varianta YouTube urmează să apară până vineri (29.11.19). Subscribe la canal sau revino aici

    Anda Gânscă este clujeancă, locuiește la New York și este CEO & Co-founder al Knotch, unul din cele mai dinamice start-ups din Statele Unite.Din 2013 și până acum, Knotch a atras peste $34 milioane de dolari investiție, din care $20 de milioane doar anul acesta, de la unii dintre cei mai renumiți investitori la nivel mondial: New Enterprise Associates, Xochi & Michael Birch (fondatorii Bebo, vândut spre AOL pentru $850 milioane), Greylock Partners și mulți alții.Am avut ocazia să o întâlnesc la Cluj, într-o vizită acasă și să vorbesc cu ea despre cum a reușit să atragă investitori de un asemenea calibru, cum a devenit antreprenor în Statele Unite și ce înseamnă să crești accelerat un start-up în tehnologie. Am atins cu Anda următoarele subiecte:

    De unde a dobândit spiritul antreprenorialCum a plecat din Cluj la Stanford Ce i-a fost cel mai greu în Sillicon ValleyCum s-a adaptat culturii americane și investitorilorCum a atras unii dintre mai prestigiosi investitori în KnotchDe ce chiar și o rundă semnificativă de bani de la investitori nu înseamnă succesDe ce banii pe îi iei de la investitori contează mai puțin decât banii pe care îi faciGo to market semnificativ înainte să iei bani de la VCsDespre începuturile KnotchCe este Knotch și cum funcționeazăCare au fost cele mai challenging aspecte din creșterea KnotchCum a descoperit punctul de inflexiune când și-a dat seama că Knotch va creșteDe ce e important să poți da grant-uri de acțiuni oamenilor care vin în firmăCe planuri are legate de construirea unei echipe în RomâniaDiferența de mindset dintre lucrul într-un start-up și o companie mareRealitatea din spatele conducerii unei companiiCe lecții a învâțat din eșecuri și de ce e bine să vorbim despre eșecDe ce e mai bine în România pentru femei antreprenor decât în Statele UniteCe trebuie să facem ca să avem mai multe femei implicate în zona de tehnologieCărți și link-uri menționate:

  4. Time (Priority) Management - Part 2 (Hall Of Fame Guidance) | Manager Tools

    Today, we cover the second in a two-part series of podcasts on Time Management.

    If you're new to the show or you didn't listen to last week's podcast, it's probably worth while going back and listening to the previous show first.

    Otherwise, you'll be joining the conversation half-way through and we all know how comfortable that feels.


    We recommend 4 1/2 steps to analyzing your use of time

    Roughly Assess Your Time - absolutely no materials other than pen and paper allowed!

    Capture Your Priorities

    Do a Rough Analysis

    (part b, only for the truly committed) - Do a "Drucker" Analysis

    Put Your Number One Priority on Your Calendar

    That's it!

    We walked through steps 1 and 2 last week, today we cover the remainder.

  5. Time (Priority) Management - Part 1 (Hall Of Fame Guidance) | Manager Tools

    Time management is a fallacy, we like to say.

    Time doesn't need you to "manage" it - it's been getting along just fine without you for billions of years.

    We can't manage time.

    But what we CAN manage is what we do with that time.

    And yet, the overwhelming evidence is that managers do NOT "manage what they do with that time."

    There's a shocking CHASM between our behavior in this area and our knowledge of what to do.

    In fact, Mark recently blogged on how busy everyone says they are, which irritates him.

    He looks at their calendars, and there's no EVIDENCE that they're busy.

    There are vast swaths of unscheduled time!

    Peter Drucker, in the first prescriptive chapter of his seminal work, the Effective Executive, says it best (of course): "The output limits of any process are set by the scarcest resource.

    In the process we call "accomplishment", this is time … Of the other major resources, money is actually quite plentiful … People … one can hire.

    But one cannot rent, hire, buy or otherwise obtain more time."

    So, the question is, how can managers start to become more efficient about using the time that each of us has at our disposal?

    In fact, that's a great way to state it:

    STOP disposing of your time!

    It's not only your most precious resource, it's also your most perishable!

    This cast will get you started doing just that.
