Grow VC Launches as Company / VC Matchmaker

first_imgDon’t you hate it when your friends set you up and all they can say about your blind date is that he’s / she’s “nice”. Your mind races. Is he / she a total sea donkey? A buffoon? Should you bring the pepper spray? Imagine what venture capitalists think when their brother-in-law invites them down to the Starbucks to meet yet another friend / entrepreneur. Hong Kong-based Grow VC just launched a midnight beta to help triage the dealmaking system. The company is a dating-style site where investors and early-stage companies meet and marry online. Grow aims to be the premier social network for early stage investments” between $10,000 to $1 million dollars USD, and for most investment groups that’s a fairly cheap date. At first glance, Grow VC appears to be a subscription-model hybrid between TheFunded and vator.tv. Like vator.tv, Grow VC allows companies to showcase and market themselves to encourage partnerships with investment firms, angels and seed funds. Meanwhile, similar to TheFunded, the site allows members to rate companies and investments groups. It will be interesting to see how Grow executes on the voting mechanism. One of the biggest complaints about TheFunded is that the site becomes a place for embittered founders to anonymously vent against VCs. Often these are the same VCs who’ve passed on investing in the ranter’s company. For Grow, anonymity may be the only way an entrepreneur would risk commenting candidly on a bad experience; however, if the community is left unregulated, it might set an abusive tone. As the supreme matchmaker, Grow will have to walk a delicate balance. As for monetization, upon official launch in the Fall of 2009, Grow will charge both founders and funders $150 + for access to the community. Fifty RWW readers can use the RWW50 promotional code on the Grow site and check it out for free. You can also request an invite directly from the company.

And, if you do manage to get hitched to a like-minded business investor, we’d like an invite to the reception. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… dana oshiro Tags:#start#startups last_img read more


4 Tips And Tricks For Pinterest Addicts

first_imgRelated Posts emily bibb The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Editor’s note: This post was originally published by our partners at PopSugar Tech.Aside from discovering delicious recipes and inspiring quotes, there are several ways your can maximize your Pinterest account both professionally and socially. Here’s what you need to know to take your Pinterest addiction to the next level, whether you’re looking to start a group board, email pins to friends, or upload photos from Instagram.Tip Number One: Get SocialPinterest is a form of social media, meaning the more you give, the more you get. Just like Twitter and Facebook, Pinterest is a great way to communicate and share content friends. Besides pinning photos for your followers (you know, the basic concept behind Pinterest), you can tag friends and followers in pins — using @ in the comment section — to get a conversation going (for example, @popsugarfashion, do you like these shoes?). You can also share pins with friends over email, Facebook, and Twitter.For those who like to collaborate, start a group board that allows multiple pinners to contribute. Don’t forget about hashtags either. This symbol (#) easily allows your content to trend and filter into common categories that fellow pinners might be searching.Tip Number Two: Get SearchingThere’s more to Pinterest than what appears in your home feed, with various ways to find content. Use the search bar to explore what’s trending and possible gift ideas and to find new pinners to follow. Remember that you had once glimpsed a perfect-with-the-living-room item on Pinterest that was from the Pottery Barn website? Enter into your browser’s URL field: http://pinterest.com/source/potterybarn.com. Use the pinterest.com/source/website rubric to find what pinners have been adding from your favorite sites.Pinterest also affects search engines: if you’re trying to track down a specific pin or something more general like a recipe, it can often be found through a search engine — this makes captioning your pins key if you want them to be discovered.Tip Number Three: Get CuriousPinterest now allows you to rediscover content by searching your pins, so you can easily find that recipe you’ve been meaning to make. For businesses and blogs verified on Pinterest, see how well your content is doing through Pinterest analytics. This is helpful to track your influence on the site and allows you to maximize your content and efforts.Tip Number Four: Get UploadingDon’t just repin! Influence Pinterest with your own content and web finds. You can upload your own photos and videos from your computer (extra points if they are high resolution) or photos from your phone and tablet (like pretty Instagram snaps). Don’t forget to add the Pinterest button to your bookmark bar and keep your photos organized with boards. Note: never upload images that aren’t yours without proper attribution.More stories from PopSugar Tech:Train Apps For Budget Travelers and City DwellersThe Easiest Way to Install Fonts on Mac OS XHow to Take Instagram Photos to the Next LevelVote For Your Favorite Superhero!Comics Come Out With LGBT Characters and Themes A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro…last_img read more


That connected device already knows your mom’s maiden name

first_imgTags:#featured#Internet of Things#IoT#security#top#Wombat Security Follow the Puck Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Since it’s National Cyber Security Awareness Month, and with the increasing amount of connected homes, systems and trendy devices, consumers need to stay informed about the best security practices, and precautions to take in order to stay safe and keep their information secure.See Also: IoT and Toys: Connected toys require more securityThis is especially true with new areas like the Internet of Things (IoT) that open up a larger area of information for hackers to potentially steal, leaving consumers vulnerable, says Wombat Security’s CTO Trevor Hawthorn, who offers up some recommendations based on his own personal experience.“As the IoT industry matures, we think we’ll continue to see varying degrees of security and privacy postures within these products,” he says. “Devices made by higher-end, well-funded, and better supported vendors such as Nest, Ring, and Canary that use cloud-backed solutions, to date, have a strong security track record.”“Cheaper, stand-alone devices produced by off shore manufacturers using out of date firmware worry me. They require that the user poke holes in their own firewalls or require a certain level of skill to setup properly,” he adds.What are consumers’ concerns?Hawthorn says he himself uses a lot of connected devices  — “They make life easier,” he says — but he adds “I take some precautions. The more devices we add to our homes, networks, pockets, cars, and lives, the more data we are exposing to attack.”For example, if your cloud-based security camera is compromised, an attacker could record everything said in your house. So it is a good idea to use a strong, unique password for your security cameras, and consider disabling audio recording.It is also a good idea to log in to your account every now and then and note any unusual changes to your account or configuration, and evaluate if you need the cameras inside your house or other sensitive areas.While the industry will need to respond with higher standards, Hawthorn says “until then” here are a few tips: Always change the default password of your devices, use strong and unique passwords on any supporting cloud services accounts, and never enable universal plug and play on your router or firewall unless you know what you are doing.And if you’re one of those fortunate people who are savvy enough to manually setup port forwarding on your router or firewall, consider limiting the IP ranges that are allowed access. For example, if you will only ever access the device from your work, only add your work’s IP address to your firewall.Finally, he says, don’t be afraid of the new. Update the firmware of your devices often. If the device supports auto-update, enable it. If not, check with the vendor’s web site often or sign up for their newsletter. Think about what the device collects and then think about the worst case scenario if that were to be available to anyone on the Internet.As we continue to see increased connectivity, remember to follow these tips, he says. Hackers will have a difficult time finding anything useful to steal, if you remain alert to the threat.
