Earlier this month, a Silicon Valley mobile startup called Loopt was acquired for $43 million.
S'il m'arrive fréquemment de présenter dans ces colonnes des concepts originaux de promotions ou autres coupons de réduction (le dernier en date était celui de SmarterBank ), ils sont toujours américains et je désespérais d'en voir des exemples (intéressants) en France. Ma patience est enfin récompensée : avec Capital Koala , les réductions obtenues sur les achats en ligne viennent alimenter le compte épargne d'un enfant. Le principe en est simple : tout d'abord, le parent s'inscrit sur la plate-forme et désigne un bénéficiaire, pour lequel il va ouvrir un compte épargne.
Depuis 2006, SimpleTuition propose aux jeunes américains (et à leurs parents) des conseils et des solutions pratiques pour optimiser le financement de leurs études supérieures. Le lancement de SmarterBank vient désormais compléter cette offre, avec un compte bancaire assorti d'un programme de récompenses exclusivement centré sur le remboursement de prêt étudiant.

Editor’s note: Legendary investor Vinod Khosla is the founder of Khosla Ventures . You can follow him on Twitter at @vkhosla . All Khosla Ventures investments, as well as ventures related to Vinod Khosla, are italicized. We are in a whole new world of platforms, a post-PC era, which I’d more aptly describe as the always/everywhere era, finally, and that means a whole new set of opportunities. Add to it the fact that because of a variety of factors too numerous to cover here, the cost of experimentation has gone down dramatically (one can start a web startup or write an Android app with no more than a student credit card!)
On the Internet, we often traffic in hyperbole. It may seem extreme to say these founders of tech or tech-based companies have changed or even will change the world, but we live in world-changing times. These 5 women and men aren’t the Mark Zuckerbergs, Steve Jobs or Evan Williams of the world but they still took everything we knew about the online world and turned it on its ear. Whether it was changing how we shared our lives, how we communicated or how we sought to make a living, these founders took risks and came out on top.
AN UNSOLD airplane seat or hotel bed burns its owners' money. Airlines, hotelliers and others with similarly perishable offerings have thus long since turned to yield management, where tweaking prices and other variables is meant to maximise earnings by ensuring that all places are sold for the highest possible fee. Now a start-up firm wants to bring some of that efficiency to co-working. LiquidSpace provides software, credit-card processing and back-office services to the many thousands of existing venues that provide desks, meeting rooms and private offices to freelancers and virtual companies that lack a central headquarters. The company's aim is to reduce the marketing friction to bring new and returning customers in and fill empty seats. Its business-development head, Jonathan Manheim, says his firm goes after co-working spaces (estimated at 700 or more in the United States), executive suites (as many as 2,000), hotels and even corporations with underused office and meeting space.

Editor’s note : Guest contributor Amit Shafrir is president of Badoo , a social network for meeting new people based in London with 130 million users . Silicon Valley is famously, and rightly, proud of its place as the spiritual home for startups. And it has an inspiring and awesome track record that’s tough to beat. However, as the recent Le Web conference proved, European tech hubs like London, Berlin and more recently Paris, can now also lay claim to breeding world-class entrepreneurs.
