Norrsken VC is nothing if not ambitious. As general partner, explains Agate Freimane, the aim of the Stockholm-based venture capital fund is to find and invest in European startups that have the potential to grow to a level where they can have an impact. positive on the lives of at least a billion people.

In a sense, it’s an arbitrary number – and a tall order – but as a stated ambition, it serves a purpose. Norrsken is an early-stage impact investor. The avowed mission to benefit the lives of not just hundreds or thousands of people, but billions of people, is meant to underscore that the fund is looking for “impact unicorns”. Or, to put it another way, companies that can make a serious difference to the problems facing the planet.

But what does this mean in practice? As the world struggles to find solutions to issues like climate change, food shortages, pollution, and social inequality, it often seems like the vast majority of startups working in the ‘impact’ space can offer solutions that may be useful but ultimately limited in the field. in the face of global challenges.

So when I spoke to Agate Freimane, I wanted to tell her about how entrepreneurs can make a real difference and the role investors can play.

Impact Foundations

Norrsken VC was born out of the Norrsken Foundation, an organization created by Niklas Adalberth, an entrepreneur who is perhaps best known as the founder of fintech company Klarna. Seeing entrepreneurs as the world’s greatest asset in terms of solving big, intractable problems, he created a support platform, which today runs accelerators and has coworking spaces in Stockholm and the greater city ​​of Rwanda, Kigali.

As a venture capital arm, Norrsken VC has, to date, made 31 investments in impact companies. “Companies we invest in must align with at least one of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Investment Goals,” says Freimane.

As Freimane points out, the focus is on fully commercial enterprises. “Originally, we were looking at both nonprofits and for-profits,” she says. “But we realized the biggest opportunity was to invest in businesses that combine profit and impact.”

The material factor

The companies Norrsken has backed may indicate a renewed willingness on the part of venture capitalists to look beyond software and pour money into projects that include hardware and infrastructure development. .

For example, citing electrification as a key theme, Freimane cites two Norrsken portfolio companies that illustrate a willingness to embrace capital-intensive R&D. Northvolt is a battery developer building a giga-factory powered entirely by green energy. Aerospace Heart is working on the development of electrically powered aircraft.

I suggest it could be risky. Go back a decade and many VCs – especially in the Bay Area – got their fingers burned investing in hardware-driven Greentech projects. Unlike software development, time to market was long and risk high. As a result, investments in hardware and infrastructure have gone out of style, but Freimane suggests something has changed.

“Hardware is hot now,” she says, not least because there’s more money available in Europe. “There is more capital around and capital needs to find a home.”

Added to this is a general realization that the planet’s problems cannot be solved by software or relatively small-scale point solutions alone.

But investing in companies that are committed to long-term, capital-intensive R&D requires VCs to focus their attention on companies that can generate the kind of return that will justify the investment. The ability to evolve is crucial. Hence Norrsken’s ambition to find the impact unicorns of tomorrow. So how is this potential identified?

Find the teams

“Scaling depends on the teams,” says Freimane. “If you have the right people on board, you can find the capital.”

As an early-stage investor, Norrsken looks forward to subsequent funding rounds when ever larger sums are needed. She sees a team assessment as the key to deciding if future funding rounds are likely to be successful. “The question I ask is whether this is a team that will be able to raise multi-billion dollars in investment,” she says.

Freimane recognizes that there will be failures and that’s OK. “Entrepreneurs have the right to fail. We accept it,” she said. “However, with each funding stage a company takes, the risks decrease.”

Arguably, the renewed appetite for major project investment that Freiman has detected is partly due to the success of Elon Musk in reshaping both the automotive and space industries. Likewise, although the landscape changes. In the post-COP26 environment, national regulations and international agreements will require that sustainability be at the heart of the economic development agenda. So whether it’s capital-intensive green steel or smaller investments in, say, software designed to optimize supply chains, companies that offer viable and scalable solutions will be increasingly attractive to investors.

Tesla’s Fully Autonomous Driving Regulatory Process To Be Further Reviewed by California DMV https://intwaydonbass.com/teslas-fully-autonomous-driving-regulatory-process-to-be-further-reviewed-by-california-dmv/ Thu, 13 Jan 2022 10:07:30 +0000 https://intwaydonbass.com/teslas-fully-autonomous-driving-regulatory-process-to-be-further-reviewed-by-california-dmv/ The California Department of Motor Vehicles is examining the regulatory process for Tesla’s Full Self-Drive Beta Program in more detail to determine if it could be subject to the autonomous vehicle regulations of the DMV.

The California Department of Motor Vehicles is examining the regulatory process for Tesla’s Full Self-Drive Beta Program in more detail to determine if it could be subject to the autonomous vehicle regulations of the DMV. The regulations apply to other automakers trying to develop self-driving vehicles, including Waymo, Cruise, and Zoox.

According to a report by the Los Angeles Times, the California DMV is examining whether Tesla’s Complete Self-Drive Beta program should be included in the group of companies that are testing their products on public roads. Tesla has been excluded from the grouping previously because the functionality requires a human driver. Tesla maintains that its cars are not fully autonomous and that humans need to be alert at all times.

However, on Jan. 5, the California DMV told Tesla it would “reconsider” the automaker’s potential inclusion in the autonomous vehicle testing regulatory program. This would require Tesla to report all system failures and crashes to the California DMV, which other companies in the program are already required to do. The potential inclusion seems to indicate that there are several reasons for Tesla’s potential inclusion in the regulations, including NHTSA investigations.

“Recent software updates, videos showing unsafe use of this technology, investigations initiated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the opinions of other experts in this space have prompted the re-evaluation,” the DMV said in a statement. letter to Lena Gonzalez, a senator from Long Beach, California.

The beta program is limited and Tesla only allows drivers with a safety score of 98 or higher to receive exclusive updates. Even still, some of the users with such high scores were not included in the beta because Tesla is still extremely cautious about its deployment. Concerns about some of the capabilities of the FSD Beta program prompted immediate updates from Tesla. For example, the October 10.3 FSD release provided dysfunctional and inaccurate forward collision assist warnings when no threat was actually there. Tesla released an update to fix the bug less than 24 hours later.

Tesla reports safety statistics, but no longer since the second quarter of 2021. Statistics for that period included one crash every 4.41 million kilometers driven with autopilot technology, which includes Autosteer and active safety features. Drivers who did not use the autopilot had an accident for every 1.2 million kilometers traveled. NHTSA data indicates that there is one accident in the United States for every 484,000 miles traveled.

Piriform’s CCleaner, the hugely popular Windows cleaning utility, is the latest great named software coming to the newly revised Microsoft Store for Windows 11. The tool was first spotted by Softpedia although it is still not not available to everyone.

This new entry is particularly interesting because CCleaner, among other registry cleaning software, has had conflicts between itself and Microsoft in the past.

As less than two years ago around August 2020, Microsoft’s Windows Defender was found report CCleaner as a potentially unwanted application (PUA) since CCleaner would be bundled with other non-Piriform software such as:

  • Google chrome

  • google toolbar

  • Avast Free Antivirus

  • AVG Free Antivirus

The Redmond company then revised the CCleaner list of PUA: Win32 / CCleaner at PUA: Win32 / PiriformBundler. Perhaps coincidentally, the bundled software all appear to be rival alternatives to Microsoft’s own offerings.

Going back even further to 2015Microsoft’s senior software development engineer, Gov Maharaj, apparently completely skipped the app during a webcast called The Defrag Show posted on the Microsoft Channel 9 website (the link appears to be no longer available).

Maharaj was apparently trying to advise a user switching their PC from Windows 7 to Windows 10 on unwanted and unnecessary apps. About CCleaner, Maharaj said:

CCleaner is… how to put it mildly… Don’t… let’s move on!

The phrase and the words showed that Microsoft, at least to some extent, wasn’t much of a fan of the software at the time. But now things seem to have changed.

While we’re on the subject of CCleaner on the Microsoft Store, there appears to be an impostor app masquerading as CCleaner called “PCCleaner“and uses the real CCleaner logo.

Delhi police on Thursday arrested a 21-year-old engineering student from Assam for allegedly setting up a website using GitHub, which posted photographs of Muslim women accompanied by objectionable comments.

It comes days after a Delhi-based reporter filed a complaint with Delhi Police over the misuse of her photo on the website. At least 100 Muslim women were similarly targeted on the website, which was hosted on the US-based software development platform GitHub.

KPS Malhotra, DCP (Cyber ​​Cell), said: “We have arrested the main conspirator and creator of the website. He also ran the website’s main Twitter account. Our team caught it from Assam. The team will reach Delhi around 3:30 p.m.

The student has been identified as Niraj Bishnoi, a resident of Jorhat. Police said he was a second-year B.Tech student at Vellore Institute of Technology in Bhopal.

Sources said they tracked Bishnoi’s IP address as part of the investigation. “We found out that the other three people (arrested by Mumbai police) were just following Bishnoi’s instructions. He was guiding them to create accounts on Twitter, ”said a police source.

According to Assam police, their Delhi counterparts had contacted them to help them carry out the “covert operation”. “We assisted them in the operation and that is how the boy was located and subsequently apprehended,” a senior Assam police official told The Indian Express.

The official said Bishnoi lives in the Digambar Chowk area of ​​Jorhat, one of the largest cities in Upper Assam. “His father is a businessman and the family lives in Jorhat. Although there is information that he is a student at Vellore Institute of Technology in Bhopal, his father said he is studying in Delhi. So there is a gap and we will know all the details soon, ”the official said.

He added that Bishnoi was in Delhi but returned to Jorhat a few days ago, just after the news broke from the controversial website.

Delhi Police Cyber ​​Cell had previously written to GitHub and Twitter to provide urgent details on the creators of the website as well as who shared the screenshots on Twitter. Twitter asked them to come through “appropriate channels”, however.

Officials said they then sent a formal request through the Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty (MLAT) for details on the applications of the investigation.

Based on the journalist’s complaint, a case under Articles 153A of the IPC (promoting enmity between different groups on religious grounds and committing acts detrimental to the maintenance of harmony), 153B (Imputations, assertions prejudicial to national integration), 354A (sexual harassment) and 509 (word, gesture or act aimed at insulting a woman’s modesty) was recorded on 1 January.

Delhi Police said they have already received approval from the Home Office to send a request to GitHub via MLAT in an earlier case six months ago, when a similar website was hosted on GitHub, also targeting Muslim women.

How Strategic Leaders Can Develop a Growth Mindset and Win https://intwaydonbass.com/how-strategic-leaders-can-develop-a-growth-mindset-and-win/ Sun, 02 Jan 2022 11:59:01 +0000 https://intwaydonbass.com/how-strategic-leaders-can-develop-a-growth-mindset-and-win/ As we mark the end of another eventful year, I believe it is imperative to share actionable insights to help leaders thrive despite the disruptive and volatile operating environment.

As we mark the end of another eventful year, I believe it is imperative to share actionable insights to help leaders thrive despite the disruptive and volatile operating environment. These actionable strategies are informed by insights I’ve gleaned from helping over 4,000 leaders and hundreds of organizations maximize their impact and thrive since my inception. TEXEM 12 years ago.

Talking about improving performance can be difficult, especially when there are disruptions such as those posed by the current pandemic. While it sounds difficult and intimidating in times of uncertainty, you will agree with me that there are frameworks that perform exceptionally well despite the many challenges they face. Such cases provide an opportunity to learn how these leaders navigate through the storms of the pandemic, competition, disruption and other headwinds.

As a leader in the public or private sector, you must learn and adopt the right strategies and skills that can help you influence impactful actions within your team. You need to engage, encourage and stimulate them to achieve your organization’s goals effectively and efficiently. Besides, contrary to what many people think, leadership is not about coercion. Sometimes your team needs a little coaching and inspiration to improve their performance.

It can be argued that certain qualities and characteristics are common among successful leaders who continually contribute to nation building; how these people respond to circumstances, including disruptive pandemics such as COVID 19 and the strategic choices they make, are all critical factors in their success and effective leadership. More importantly, the way people react to the need for change and transition, especially in the digital age, sets them apart from their counterparts who might struggle or perform poorly. If you are looking to be a leader, it turns challenges into vitamins; here are some of the essential skill sets you need:

a. communication skills

The ability to present information in a clear and effective manner is very vital for any leader who aspires to develop an impactful and lasting legacy. While presentation skills are required by almost all jobs these days, being a leader requires knowing how to get messages across effectively. It is essential for success. About 70 percent of all change initiatives fail in part because of poor communication. So, to be successful in inspiring transformation, you need to enhance your private and public presentations across multiple platforms. Writing skills are also an essential part of strategic communication. Strategic leaders communicate with clarity, confidence, conviction, build trust and inspire others to transform.

b. Financial awareness

Financial awareness, including the ability to use a variety of financial knowledge and skills such as budgeting, investing, and financial management, will enable you to effectively manage your organization’s financial resources. You also need these skills to communicate your organization’s financial situation and performance to all stakeholders. It will also inform the choices and actions you take and those that should be postponed.

vs. Entrepreneurship: taking risks

Leadership requires an entrepreneurial mindset that can turn problems into opportunities that add value and propel the organization towards success. Thus, leaders must be risk takers and experts when navigating uncertainties. And in today’s environment, entrepreneurial activity is more necessary than ever. It’s necessary to solve problems, improve performance, and thrive in the face of ever-increasing competition.

D. computer skills

Developing IT skills as a leader will enable you to adopt and use emerging technologies. From artificial intelligence to quantum computing, big data and the Internet of Things, all of these technological capabilities can disrupt the dominant business model, so every leader needs to be tech-savvy. Therefore, you also need these skills to be efficient, effective and easily solve technical, human and business problems. So, you may just need to acquire computer skills in many areas, especially in project management, cybersecurity, software development, data analysis, etc. To achieve this, you need to take short courses on it, and it will help you improve your performance as a manager.

e. Personal motivation

As a prolific leader, you need to be motivated before you seek to motivate your team or those you lead. It becomes easy to provide strategic direction and inspire your team to achieve organizational goals when you are motivated. But how do you get motivated? Well, be open to change, learn from others, reflect on your progress, balance your emotions, reflect on it; the business you keep and what you read and still make positive affirmative statements.

F. Time management

Listen, effective time management boosts strategic leadership. So you need to get into the habit of using time well. Each day, make a to-do list, prioritize your tasks, be focused, manage distractions, and track your time. Note that if everyone has 24 hours, some use it well, while others end up wasting their time. The best performance, growth, and other successes come when you manage your time well, so you need to do it and do it efficiently.

g Action plan for change or personal development plan

As a leader, you need a written record of your self-reflection and improvement, which should also form your course of action that you will use to achieve your goals. It should describe your development goals, areas for improvement and optimizing performance as a leader. Most importantly, it should outline the tactics you will use to achieve the best performance, the strategies of which should be broken down into actionable steps, and each step should have a time frame. Thus, this action plan must be intelligent, that is to say specific, measurable, achievable and limited in time.

h. Embrace the change

Another typical behavior of leaders who perform at peak performance despite the plethora of contextual challenges is that they are always willing to embrace change. Ideally, change is always part of the business or the day-to-day management of the business. So, as a manager, you need to be open-minded and ready to embrace change. Note that with ever changing technologies, ways of thinking and other dynamics, you cannot expect to apply the same old techniques of leadership strategies. This is how you are beaten and left behind as your competition grows and reaches the heights of success.

I. Invest in education

Another vital requirement for self, team, organizational and society improvement is the commitment to lifelong learning. You will agree that leadership is a journey, not a destination. So, as a strategic leader, you must continually expand your knowledge and inspire your organization to embrace a culture of lifelong learning. This could be a way to develop basic skills and capabilities that could generate sustainable competitive advantage. To gain a sustainable competitive advantage, you can enroll in short courses with reputable providers. One of these leading consulting firms is TEXEM. Over time, TEXEM has proven to be a leader in providing actionable learning platforms and the best programs for executives looking to steer their organizations towards success and the highest possible growth potentials. It gives you the opportunity to hear, engage, and learn from some of the best faculties and leaders from world-renowned universities and other learning centers. TEXEM is also renowned for having a rigorous methodology that makes learning challenging, exciting and impactful.

To wrap up

Overall, the most strategic leaders are those who have a growth mindset and strive for continuous improvement. For them, past success is no reason to settle for everything. Rather, it is a reason to acquire more skills, especially those that help increase their capabilities, facilitate profitable growth of their organizations and have a culture of renewal. But what kind of skills are needed? We are in a digital age; therefore, digital, soft and conceptual skills are vital for survival, growth and improved performance. Moreover, you can get insight into the behavior of customers, their needs and the best ways to connect with them with such skills.

Through lifelong learning and education, you have the opportunity to both network outdoors, share experiences with others, and most importantly, develop your leadership skills. Influential leaders invest in their leadership, and whether you are in the public or private sector, you must embrace lifelong learning as well. All organizations need leaders who keep growing. So, to grow your business, develop yourself as an executive or leader. Learn and practice the habit of constantly striving to improve your performance, even when you are already doing well.

Microsoft just gave buyers a reason to avoid the Surface Duo https://intwaydonbass.com/microsoft-just-gave-buyers-a-reason-to-avoid-the-surface-duo/ Thu, 30 Dec 2021 01:53:50 +0000 https://intwaydonbass.com/microsoft-just-gave-buyers-a-reason-to-avoid-the-surface-duo/ When Microsoft announced the existence of the Surface Duo running Android and its Windows-based sibling Surface Neo in 2019, there was a lot of enthusiasm for the unique design and proposition of the two.

When Microsoft announced the existence of the Surface Duo running Android and its Windows-based sibling Surface Neo in 2019, there was a lot of enthusiasm for the unique design and proposition of the two. They were finally making the Courier concept dream come true, at least they hoped so. The reality, unfortunately, was not like that, and the Surface Neo was all but canceled. While the Surface Duo is now in its second iteration, Microsoft’s alleged claims of a delayed update could give potential buyers doubts about this particular product line.

The Surface Duo and Surface Neo both embodied Microsoft’s vision for the future of productivity. Two screens made multitasking a no-brainer, and the Surface Duo would have been the mobile companion of a Surface Neo. Unlike the Windows dual-screen PC, the Surface Duo managed to launch after a few delays. However, his reception is mixed.

For its price, the first Surface Duo almost looked like an expensive prototype. While the hardware looked nice, it lacked a few things like 5G support or, more importantly, cameras. The Surface Duo 2 improved on these but added a few complications of its own. For example, you can no longer fully fold the device due to the shock of the camera.

Both versions of the device, however, were plagued by software glitches. Even after many updates, there are still reports of instabilities and issues with the apps. For owners of the first Surface Duo, one of the biggest gripes is the version of Android they’re running on. It turns out that they will have to wait until next month to get Android 11 on their device.

The Surface Duo launched in September 2020 and ran Android 10 from 2019. Considering the timing, that was a bit understandable, but not so much the delay. Microsoft has promised that the dual-screen device will get Android 11 before the end of the year, but that obviously won’t. For its part, the manufacturer of Windows puts the fault on the feet of Google.

According to SurMsftMicrosoft reportedly said the update has already been tested by its internal team and ready for deployment. However, Google does require devices that ship with the Google Play Store to undergo certification testing before releasing major updates. With both companies already on vacation, this would not have been possible before the end of 2021.

This raises the question of why Microsoft did not prepare for the update sooner. The company had over a year to work on it, even with the development of the Surface Duo 2 on the side. The second-gen device ran Android 11 out of the box, so it wasn’t as if the company had no experience with this version of Android.

The situation, however, suggests that Microsoft has very limited resources allocated to its Surface Duo devices, especially for the software experience. It also casts doubt on Microsoft’s ability to meet the demands of Android software development, especially if it plans to release more Surface Duos in the future.

“Like the future of work, we believe the future of events will include a combination of virtual and in-person formats,” the video communications company said.

In July, the company launched “Zoom Events”, a solution for customers to create, host and manage virtual or hybrid events. It also announced Zoom Event Services to help organizations plan, support and produce virtual, live and hybrid events on its platform.
