The Full-Stack Startup

You’ve mentioned that it’s a new, important trend, and a pattern of startups we’ve been seeing over the past couple of years. Chris Dixon: The old approach startups took was to sell or license their new technology to incumbents. The new, “full stack” approach is to build a complete, end-to-end product or service that bypasses incumbents and other competitors. A good example from big companies is Apple versus Microsoft.

Amazing Things Happen When Businesses Connect : Tradeshift. The unbundling of commercial banks. Loans and Financing The small business and commercial loans market is probably the one being disrupted the quickest by technology, with a number of startups emerging to compete with banks in this space, relying on different information to underwrite loans than banks have traditionally used.

The unbundling of commercial banks

To better understand this market, I’ve broken it up based on roughly the length of the financing of the startups aim to provide, into three main types: Short term credit (supply chain/working capital)Loans (generally longer term)Funding (investments into businesses) Short-term credit Small businesses (and large ones too) often face short term cashflow problems.

Taking Prediction Markets With a Grain of Salt

Unfortunately, if you placed your bet on InTrade itself, you may have some issues trying to collect your money. In a follow-up post on Business Insider, Joe Weisenthal goes into the controversy itself of the value of these prediction markets: It was popular among pundits and amateur fans of U.S. politics, as it allowed people to place bets on various real-life event outcomes (Would Obama win? Who would be the GOP nominee? Will the Supreme Court uphold Obamacare). Weisenthal's right in that just because the "bet" was wrong didn't mean InTrade was flawed. I think that totally misses the point, though. To reiterate the obvious example, InTrade persistently gave Romney better odds of victory than polls, poll interpreters like Nate Silver, and all other betting markets. But InTrade is far from the only "prediction" market whose ability to actually predict anything gets a bit overstated.
