The augmented reality (AR) game, Pokémon Go, has taken the world by storm as players roam the real world catching Pokémon and battling in Pokémon gyms. The game has set 5 records since its launch in July 2016 — including the most revenue by a mobile game in its first month ($206.5 million). Nintendo’s stock doubled 15 days into the release, adding $7.5B in value, but then settled back into a mere 50% increase when it became clear that Nintendo was a partner with limited ownership in the company that developed the game (Niantic, a Google spinoff).

One-on-one interviews provide information about an individual's actions and motivations. They are conducted by a trained moderator with a single respondent in person, or over the phone or video chat. Sessions normally last 1-2 hours and will often involve participants being shown stimulus to inform discussion and may include interactive techniques, e.g. role play scenarios.

A Bifocal Display simultaneously shows a large data space with minimal detail and a subportion of that space with full detail displayed in context (like a magnification). Distortion around the borders helps to maintain visual continuity between the detailed and contextual views, illustrating how the detail fits within the greater context. A Bifocal Display can be used to magnify important information, thus being used to communicate a both a detailed and a broad design effectively.

The White House called up Mark Cuban. They want him to help figure out how to open the economy back up. And give people their jobs, their income and access to opportunity. So I called him up to hear the plan. How will the U.S. government reopen to economy? And what should aspiring entrepreneurs do now? Here are some of the questions I asked: "Are you running for president?" “How do we avoid a Mad Max situation?” “What changes will we see in the near future? And down the road?” “How do we protect people from coronavirus while still getting back to work? What precautions will businesses have to take?” “Why did the fed give so much money to the airlines?” “Why is the market going up?” “What does innovation and entrepreneurship look like in the new normal?” And more I write about all my podcasts!

From sales, to date night, to politics--we are always negotiating. In this inaugural episode, UO professor of management David Wagner explains how this actually can be a great thing. Negotiations, he explains, are often about problem solving and discovery. We then dive into his negotiations class, which visits Starbucks and Chipotle as well as explores business hypotheticals and hardball tactics. Podcast editor Alec Cowan comes to the rescue to perform some vocabulary duty, explaining "3D negotiation." And host Troy Campbell brings in some psychology. Prepare for an episode full of charm, hope, and education as we kick off Business 1O1. We promise you’ll leave the podcast rushing to "source interests" in all your relationships, and you'll see immediately how when we understand the 1O1 of anything, we can better at everything!

The goal of this course is to build upon the concepts learned in the Entrepreneurial Projects I Capstone and give Computer Science students more advanced tools to be successful technical co-founders of their own startups. We will explore later stages of the Lean Startup/Customer Development iterative methodology. Student teams will build upon their low-fidelity MVPs that exhibited traction to develop high-fidelity MVP products. Students will learn business concepts like marketing, sales, and finance that are relevant to IT startup formation, hopefully in partnership with business school teams. Students will also learn legal concepts relevant to startup formation. Invited guest lecturers from the entrepreneurial community will provide their domain expertise, which may include topics such as product development, Agile software engineering, mobile strategy, and big data/cloud computing, as well as mentoring. Student teams will present/pitch their startup company/concepts in various public forums, which may include the CU New Venture Challenge, local Tech meetup, CS/College Expo, startup2students-like job fair, and/or the final Demo Day presentation.

Episode 13 addresses a question that has been dogging us since the company’s beginnings: Are we a technology company or a content company? This question led to months of debate. Many voices weighed in on either side, including Marco Arment, the lead developer of Tumblr and creator of Instapaper, who came in surprisingly anti-tech. A few weeks back, we had a breakthrough when one of the most successful tech companies in the world paid a visit to the Gimlet Media headquarters.

MGMT 495 is designed to enable students to understand various functions entrepreneurs or owner managers perform to successfully manage and grow a new or small business. Resource constrains, that such ventures face, makes the job of entrepreneur(s)/manager(s) challenging. Entrepreneurship is the pursuit of opportunity without regard to resources currently controlled. An entrepreneurial approach is required to manage such ventures. To prepare students to assume leadership and management roles in such ventures, following topics will be covered in this course: - Marketing, Branding, and Customer Acquisition (Customer Relationship, Pricing and Promotion, and Supply Chain Management) - Managing Internal Operations (Leadership, Managing Human Resources, and Production Management) 2 - Accounting, Finance, and Managing Numbers ( Financial Performance, Firm Assets, and Financial Risk) - Raising Capital - Product/Market fit - Negotiations - Intellectual Property - Leveraging Technology Another critical skill that entrepreneurs or owners require to effectively manage a small and/or growing venture is good communication skill. To enable students to sharpen communication skills, especially writing and presentation skills, a substantial component of class assignments and grade is based on written cases and presentations. In addition, a significant portion of student grade is based on their contribution (participation) to class discussions. This course will benefit not only students interested in becoming entrepreneurs, but also those interested in pursuing all other career paths.

The secret seems to be finding the right balance between creating innovative films and retaining enough continuity to make them all recognizably part of a coherent family. In just a decade Marvel Studios has redefined the franchise movie. Its 22 films have grossed some $17 billion—more than any other movie franchise in history. At the same time, they average an impressive 84% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes (the average for the 15 top-grossing franchises is 68%) and receive an average of 64 nominations and awards per movie. Avengers: Endgame,released in the spring, has won rave reviews and generated so much demand that online movie ticket retailers had to overhaul their systems to manage the number of requests. Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios, offered a deceptively simple explanation in Variety: “I’ve always believed in expanding the definition of what a Marvel Studios movie could be. We try to keep audiences coming back in greater numbers by doing the unexpected and not simply following a pattern or a mold or a formula.” The secret seems to be finding the right balance between creating innovative films and retaining enough continuity to make them all recognizably part of a coherent family. --------------------------------------------------------------------- At Harvard Business Review, we believe in management. If the world’s organizations and institutions were run more effectively, if our leaders made better decisions, if people worked more productively, we believe that all of us — employees, bosses, customers, our families, and the people our businesses affect — would be better off. So we try to arm our readers with ideas that help them become smarter, more creative, and more courageous in their work. We enlist the foremost experts in a wide range of topics, including career planning, strategy, leadership, work-life balance, negotiations, innovation, and managing teams.

In this live web-based simulation, participants play the role of senior management at a video game hardware platform producer, such as Sony, Nintendo, or Microsoft. Built around a companion case study describing the launch of Sony’s PlayStation 3, the simulation explores the dynamics of competition in multi-sided markets. In such markets, success depends not only on a product’s price and features, but also on how many people own it (a direct network externality) and on the number of games and applications available—that is, the size of the installed base of complementary products (an indirect network externality). Platform markets are increasingly common in settings other than video games, including computers, the Internet and e-commerce, and mobile telecommunications.

She coaches business and agency owners looking for more financial breathing room on how to institute rate raises and price their services appropriately - setting them up to earn more per client and feel in control of their business. Lauren and I chat about how all the craziness around coronavirus has affected her events business. We talk about how that's impacting her cash flow and her approach to her finances and how Lauren built some great financial processes into her business that are serving her well during this time. Key Takeaways: - How to handle cash flow during a worst-case scenario - How COVID-19 effects events businesses and how those effects trickle down to other agencies - How opportunities can reveal themselves in unconventional places - What kind of financial processes you can have in place to build resiliency

Entrepreneurs have started new ventures for generations. Success was more a function of tenacity and a measure of the idea underpinning the business. Errors in the structure and early conduct of the enterprise could be overcome with time through learning. In the new paradigm, tolerance for such errors is acutely narrow. Competition has become intense, technology-based, market-focused and highly competent. In such a competitive environment the lack or misuse of the application of currently available technology to the structure and conduct of a new business could quickly spell its demise. Similarly, the inability to adapt the enterprise to the emergence of new technologies to make it marketdriven and structure-perfect could have the same effect. In summary, competition is just too tough; the end could come quickly.

In January, I had the pleasure of organizing and moderating the Annual "Nuts and Bolts of Business Plans" seminar series at MIT. Although these seminars are aimed primarily at MIT students who are planning to enter the Business Plan Competition, many non-students attended as well. There were 12 excellent outside speakers covering the topics of marketing, finance, business plan basics, and "war stories." In reviewing the notes I took during the series, I was struck with how consistent the message was from these 12 speakers who never met each other, and how similar that message was to what has been said by the 50 or so unrelated speakers who have participated in the series over the past six years.
