Thinking global is not an option for startups anymore // blog.press42.com


By Alex aka Chief WOWness  //  press42

We just got back from Poland were we were invited to give a talk at one of the largest investment forums in Poland, the Satus VC investment forum. It’s been a very interesting trip. We were initially connected with them in San Francisco and we had a long conversation on the need of getting European companies outside their local boundaries.

Satus VC runs 3 different incubator programs across Poland and as such, it has a very large pool of startups in its portfolio. Because they touch many fields, they have very different types of companies, some of which have global goals in sight. And as such, they asked us to collaborate with them in aiding these startups when it comes to communicating and going global.

So we delivered a first talk on the matter that judging by the feedback we got from many attendees, it was very well received and it nailed down the major problems Polish, and most definitely, most Easter European companies are experiencing in terms of market location.

We can’t stress how important it is for European companies to break the local barriers and start thinking in a global way from day one. Most people would mistake thinking global with going international. While it might seem similar, one is a probable consequence of the other.

Consumers Praise Store Brands


– Mark Dolliver, Adweek
Respondents to a 23-country survey largely agreed that store brands are at least as good as national brands in many respects.

Released yesterday by Ipsos Marketing the Consumer Goods poll (conducted last November through this January) found 89 percent of respondents saying store brands are “the same as or better than” national brands when it comes to “providing a good value for the money.”

But it’s not just that they’re seen as a bargain. Large majorities of respondent also said store brands are at least the equal of national brands in “offering products that meet my needs” (87 percent), “offering products that are good for the family” (86 percent), “offering food products that taste good” (81 percent) and “offering home products that work well” (81 percent).

Another indication that store brands have shed the fly-by-night aura they had in years past: 80 percent of respondents agreed that they’re as good as or better than national brands at “offering products I trust.” Likewise, 73 percent said they’re at least as good at “offering high-quality products.”

Smaller majorities rated store brands as highly as national brands in “offering innovative products” (69 percent) and “having appealing packaging” (65 percent).

Besides the U.S., countries covered in the survey included Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Sweden, Britain, Belgium, France, Spain, the Netherlands, Italy, Germany, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Russia, Turkey, India, China, Japan, South Korea and Australia.
