The Board Of Innovation

Business Models Beyond Profit - Social Entrepreneurship Lecture MERKAPT Copilotage de l’innovation How To Avoid Getting Fired From Your Own Company Editor’s note: Guest author Chris Yeh is an independent angel investor and VP of Marketing for PBworks, one of his investments. He has been involved with Internet startups since 1995. His Twitter handle is @chrisyeh. If you start a company, it will probably happen to you someday. Maybe it will be your VC or a board member. Maybe it will be your co-founder. Sooner or later, they’ll try to fire you.

Dans ce processus, les participants, nouveaux et anciens, ont rapidement ressentit le besoin d'exprimer leurs intentions à propos de Team Academy. L'expression des intentions pour Team Academy Alsace s'est faite en 3 groupe de 3 avant un partage en grand cercle : 2 nouvelles dates sont programmées pour :

Thoughts on Linked Data Business Models Scott Brinker recently published a great blog post covering 7 business models for Linked Data. The post is well worth a read and reviews the potential for both direct and indirect revenue generation from a range of different business models. I’ve been thinking about these same issues myself recently so I’m pleased to see that others are doing similar analysis. Scott’s conclusion that, currently, Linked Data is more likely to drive indirection revenue is sound, and reflects where we are with the deployment of the technology. The time is ripe though for organizations to begin exploring direct revenue generation models and it’s there that I wanted to add some thoughts and commentary to Scott’s posting. Traffic The traffic model, with its indirect revenue generation by driving traffic to existing content and services, is well understood.
