βšͺ️We're excited to continue our tradition of sharing insightful analytics about projects within our communityπŸš€

Today, we want to shed some light on the next exciting project in our radar: DOM

βšͺ️pitch deck

Project Description:

A cryptocurrency wallet for everyday needs, where you can pay for purchases with cryptocurrency by scanning QR codes. In addition, the project provides an opportunity to invest in DeFi by selecting a category relative to the degree of risk. The project promises to be as user-friendly as possible and does not use cryptocurrency words.

Analytics:

Undoubtedly, the project is focused on adapting cryptocurrency for people, but there is no clarity on the legal side. Given the focus on regions where cryptocurrency is a tool to enter the global market, the product may be in demand, but it should be noted that there are certain risks.

One of the main risks is the possibility of investment. DeFi technology is a great financial tool for experienced investors and analysts, but the main problem is that an inexperienced user can make a lot of mistakes when interacting with these technologies. If the project takes on the function of investment management, offering various options, it can suffer strong reputational losses if a negative situation arises in the market and the project user starts losing his funds or loses them all at once.

The project has conducted analytics that reflect the emerging market sector in which it will develop. It also conducted a comparative analysis with competitors, demonstrated what the project earns on and what exactly it offers to its client.

Summary:

The project is clear about the goals it wants to achieve. The team has done a good job of documenting the many important questions that analysts may have.

Getting "Reservations" from Angel Investors

When starting fundraising, securing commitments from investors can take time, and a lack of progress may make your round appear stagnant. To address this, obtaining reservations from Angel investors can be beneficial. Here's how:

βšͺ️Ask for investment interest:

During your meeting with potential investors, ask directly if they are interested in investing. For instance, inquire about their thoughts on your project and if they'd like to be part of your round.

βšͺ️Inquire about check size:

If the investor shows interest, find out their typical investment check size and decision timeline. This information is crucial for the reservation process.

βšͺ️Secure the reservation:

If the investor's criteria align with your plan, express your openness to having them involved. Then, let them know you'll reserve a spot for them while they make their decision.

This step is critical. For example:

β€œShould I hold that space for you while you’re deciding?”

β€œI will hold your spot, to give you some time to decide.”

β€œI usually hold space for investors while they’re in diligence, I’ll do the same for you.”

This scarcity will create a sense of urgency for other potential investors, increasing the FOMO.

When asked about your fundraising status, mention the spoken-for availability, for example, "We're raising $500k and have 50% spoken for."

Practice these phrases beforehand, and your early seed fundraising efforts will be more effectiveπŸš€
Pitch secrets by Alchemist. Secret 1

βšͺ️Success itself is a sales hack!

Warning:
If you are a founder who has a technical or product background, this secret may upset you😁

A startup is not a story about a product, but a story about potential growth πŸš€

β€œProduct” is not equal to β€œsales.” Sales are equal to success!

Let’s see examples:

βšͺ️Case #1

A founder presents a pitch to an investor at a conference.

"Hi, my name is John Doe. We have developed an AI-based mathematical model for building routes in real-time for…."

John doesn’t stay on message.
He rambles on. He goes off on tangents. He doesn't focus on his client's needs and whether or not his client is paying attention to what he is saying.

His investor finds himself eager for John's monologue to end.

John thought he was bringing up something innovative and interesting, but it was interesting only to him, not to his investor πŸ₯²
He lost his chance to close.

βšͺ️Case #2

Let’s have a glance at the pitch of the Whizz startup. 

β€œHi! We have reached $1M ARR within 6 months, have more than 100 clients, and I was featured on the Forbes '30 under 30' list.”

They grabbed the investor’s attention! The team instantly gets questioned with, β€œWhat’s your name? What is your startup all about 🀯?” … SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!

At this point, it is alright to focus on the product. Yet it is still better to commence with the use cases. For instance, start with the success stories of your clients.

As a result, even if the investor is a little overwhelmed with detail, he will want to become a part of your ongoing success.

Triggered with dopamine, he is fully engaged in your achievements!

πŸš€Hello, everyone!

We are planning an online event about Web3 Secondary markets, including web3 projects, founders and VCs.

β€’ Format: Panel Discussion
β€’ Date: August 10th at 13:00 (UTC+3) (Tentative date)

During this discussion, we'll explore how effectively use the OTC tools, discuss cases and problems in the web3 secondary market.

We intend to invite all our clients and partners, which includes 300+ VCs, individual investors, and Web3 projects.

⚑️We extend an invitation to VC funds, projects, SAFT/SAFE holders, and brokers to join the discussion.

We have two questions for you:

If you want to take part in the event, write to us directly here or DM @sveta_shrobokovaa
πŸ¦„Brief notes on the past Mastermind event for founders by the Web3 accelerator:

😒Hypothesis: Founders feel lonely and have a hard time working during the summer. Not confirmed.

However, meetings with colleagues in the industry indeed add a lot of energy. The founder's "keep moving forward" attitude remains constant, both in summer and winter.

πŸ”₯Those living in hot regions (Dubai, Turkey, SEA) work with air conditioning, maintaining productivity year-round (they can always step out to get some sun and vitamin D).

Others more sensitive to seasonal changes prefer working from home or coworking spaces during summer.

πŸ‘£Allocating time for rest during the summer is normal. It's essential to grant vacations to team members and redistribute tasks, avoiding burdening vacationers with work-related issues. The better someone rests and disconnects, the more effective they'll be when they return to work.

Team value and motivation:

In different situations, a properly motivated team demonstrates autonomy and effectiveness. Such a team is ready to weather difficulties and funding delays because they are working on an exciting product with an enthusiastic founder. People aged 35-40 tend to focus more on self-realization than just earning money.

Maintain warm relationships with valuable employees who are temporarily working elsewhere to meet their financial obligations. They will gladly return to working full-time with you when the opportunity arises.

Conduct a strategic session during the summer - it's beneficial for:

πŸ‘Alleviating uncertainty stress for the team.
🀝Defining areas of responsibility and reaching agreements on them, providing peace of mind to the founder that everything is being addressed and nothing is overlooked.

Thank you to everyone who attended!

It was fantastic: we exchanged contacts and pleasant news. After the 2-hour Mastermind, many participants continued to discuss, collaborate, and exchange ideas in private messages. It's delightful to meet both familiar and entirely new faces and names!

More and more projects are adopting the concept of "tokenized rails." This trend is not coincidental, as many prominent figures in the crypto industry highly appreciate tokenization. Project XRP, which holds a top position on CoinMarketCap, is no exception.
πŸ“ΉInterview: Fundraising and Acceleration in Web3

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2fx3jJNl9pI

Ammar Al-Ansi, co-founder of the Fractal Web3 accelerator, delves into the intrinsic value of joining an accelerator, even when VC funding isn't on your radar.

πŸ”ΈThe transformative advantages accelerators bring to startups
πŸ”ΈThe offerings Fractal extends to its participants
πŸ”ΈEnvisioning the future landscape of Web3
πŸ”ΈThe undeniable impact of diverse founding teams
πŸ”ΈHarnessing technology to address user-centric challenges and more
πŸ’‘Inspiring belief in your team's mission

To begin, it's important to note that a team's enthusiasm isn't innate; it's kindled by the founder's energyπŸ”₯ The team's vigor is directly tied to the founder's unwavering belief in the idea.

Where does this conviction originate in the founder? Undoubtedly, it stems from tangible progress: initial positive feedback from satisfied clients and the initial confirmation of the product's value. This instills confidence that the founder is on the correct trajectory.

How to validate the product's necessity?

Customer development
is an ideal tool to determine if you're creating something indispensable or merely conjuring ideas. Even worse would be investing substantial funds into a futile endeavor.

Consequently, we initiate conversations with potential clients, inquiring when and under what circumstances they encounter the problem we intend to address. Repeating these discussions 50-100 times reveals recurring issues, enabling us to either affirm our approach or refine the product based on each study's conclusions.

If the product isn't yet complete and motivation is waning, secure initial orders!

Establish a landing page, launch targeted advertising, and secure initial orders. Even if the product is in development for the next six months, the presence of demand will bolster the founder and the entire team's belief in the endeavor.

βœ…I employed this strategy when striving to scale. Each morning, I convened the scaling team and presented our achievements to either our central office or the partners who had already joined us.

I showcased the investments secured, the fund allocations, and the commissions earned. I presented tangible evidence to the teamβ€”a testament to our creation of a robust, exceptional product. The more evidence we gathered, the stronger our belief became.

It's imperative for the team not only to believe but also to be motivated to independently advance the product. This amplifies their faith in the project's significance. Conduct collaborative strategic or decision-making sessions. Foster an environment that encourages the product's advancement.

Starting a startup with no Initial investment. What to do now if starting from scratch

In crafting a formula for a prosperous startup, we'd encompass three vital elements:

βœ…Concept
βœ…Team
βœ…Funding

Let's explore each aspect in detail, considering the lack of initial capital.

1️⃣Concept

Realize that ideas, akin to capital, are valuable assets. We choose them based on our interests or circumstances.

Identify a trend πŸ‘‰ immerse ourselves πŸ‘‰ experience a problem πŸ‘‰ engage in customer development to formulate solutions.

2️⃣Team

A team must:

πŸ“Œcollaborate on an equal footing (each member freely expresses opinions)
πŸ“Œbe comprehensive. This means including three roles: the hustler (dealing with sales, resources, management), the hipster (managing marketing), the hacker (tending to the product), and the analyst, who processes data.

Once the team is established, it's vital to agree that success leads to commercial partnerships. If not, acknowledge it as a valuable experiment. The team's success tomorrow heavily hinges on each participant.

3️⃣Funding

With the MVP ready, the problem verified, and willing paying customers, attracting investments comes next. Collaboratively develop a presentation. Be it a canvas, PowerPoint, or Google Slides, it incurs no cost.

Armed with this, approach potential clients. With the team structured as described earlier, contacts are likely to include someone interested in the product.

❗️If there's no immediate client, leverage your network for recommendations; undoubtedly, someone will be of assistance.

The subsequent steps involve:

🟣Crafting a product presentation.
🟣Promising to resolve the client's issue and securing advance payment.
🟣Replicating this process tenfold, delivering on commitments using the funds received.
🟣Recognizing the need for expansion.
🟣Scaling up.

❗️At the outset, a product isn't mandatory. Understanding how to fulfill commitments remains the primary focus.

⁠#blog #tokenization #realestate

Real estate is one of the strongest investment objects and one of the most interesting objects for tokenization. Regardless of the situation on the stock market, there is always a need for housing and working space. Therefore, real estate is characterized by stability and continuity.
Building a cohesive and successful team is one of the most crucial aspects that investors look at. After all, investors invest in people, not just technology or a product. It's extremely important that the team can bring the envisioned and initiated projects to fruition.

How to create a close-knit and successful team that will be a pleasure to invest in?

🟒 Choose individuals with shared values, strong players, and diverse skill sets.
🟒 Foster communication within the team; talk openly. Address any emerging negativity right away, without letting it accumulate.
🟒 Ensure that employees' motivation is not at zero or in the negative zone.
🟒 Assign responsibilities and tasks based on skill levels, without overtly leaning towards skill reduction or advancement.
🟒 Hire people you would want to work with over the next 5 years.

With these steps in place, success is bound to follow!

❓And now, let us ask you: what strategies have you found effective in building and nurturing a strong and motivated team? Share your insights in the comments belowπŸ‘‡
