A fost reales recent, indonezian Președintele Joko Widodo a anunțat dorința de a muta capitala nației din Jakarta în regiunea Kalimantanului de Est, citând îngrijorări de mediu, cea mai exigentă dintre acestea fiind faptul că Jakarta se scufundă literalmente din cauza extracției necontrolate a apelor subterane. Widodo a declarat că dorește să separe guvernul Indoneziei de centrul său comercial și economic din Jakarta.

Cu toate acestea, ce ar face o mutare de la Jakarta la economia de pornire în vigoare a Indoneziei?

Schimbarea huburilor guvernamentale

Potrivit Widodo, studiile au stabilit că cel mai bun site pentru noul capital propus este cel dintre Nord Penajam Paser și Kutai Kertanegara, ambele situate în estul Kalimantan. Baza acestei selecții se datorează studiilor care evidențiază protecția relativă a regiunii din dezastre naturale, în special în comparație cu alte regiuni. Acest lucru ar fi cu siguranță un beneficiu pentru inima guvernamentală a Indoneziei, asigurând funcții administrative continue într-o regiune predispusă la dezastre. Alte guverne au separat centrele administrative de centrele lor economice cu diferite grade de succes, unele exemple fiind crearea Braziliei de Brasilia, precum și trecerea proiectată a Coreei de la Seul la Sejong.

Ceea ce este cel mai interesant de remarcat din exemplele anterioare este faptul că aceste orașe ramificate mai noi sunt neobișnuit, puternic centrate pe guvern. În Brasilia, rolurile legate de guvern sunt aproape 40% din toate locurile de muncă, în timp ce se află în Sejong, o lipsă de facilități precum transportul public și spațiul comercial sunt cauzate de multe naveta în Sejong pentru lucrări guvernamentale, în loc să se stabilească definitiv în zonă. Având în vedere natura semi-dezvoltată a Kalimantanului de Est, aceste anecdote sunt destul de îngrijorătoare dacă guvernul se mută de fapt în Nord Penajam Paser sau Kutai Kertanegara.

Aceste fapte ridică problema impactului economic al acestor mișcări guvernamentale. De fapt, se poate chiar opina că, în timp ce aceste mișcări permit o creștere guvernamentală, în cele din urmă, acestea ar putea răni țara economic din cauza cedării atât dintre centrele guvernamentale, cât și din cele economice. În acest caz specific, este foarte important să analizăm impactul unei astfel de mișcări asupra economiei de pornire a Indoneziei, deoarece națiunea este unul dintre liderii mondiali în creșterea startup-urilor.

Economia de pornire a Indoneziei

Indonezia a apărut ca un hub de pornire în Asia de Sud-Est în ultimii ani, cu populația de peste 260 de milioane marcând-o ca a patra țară cu cea mai populată lume. În plus, prima populație mobilă din Indonezia a permis îmbrățișarea completă a erei internetului 95% a tuturor utilizatorilor de internet din Indonezia conectați la web prin intermediul unui dispozitiv mobil.

În mod similar, creșterea startup-urilor s-a dezvoltat în arhipelagul insular, mai multe unicornuri din Indonezia perturbând economiile locale, regionale și globale. Gigantul Tokopedia, sprijinit de softbank, este în prezent în discuții pentru o rundă de finanțare pre-IPO, în timp ce super-aplicația emergentă Gojek controlează porțiuni semnificative ale industriei de partajare în Asia, extinzând simultan în industrii separate să includă plăți digitale, livrare de alimente și chiar -Streaming video. În plus, portalul de călătorii online Traveloka (în care Expedia are un pachet minoritar) a avut recent a intrat spațiul serviciilor financiare, sporindu-și impactul în Asia. Aceste exemple specifice de start-up-uri cu creștere înaltă demonstrează o populație flămândă de inovare, determinând în continuare economia de startup în curs de dezvoltare.

Cât despre ceea ce l-a determinat să plece, Cox a explicat că „nu a fost ceva în care am simțit că vreau să petrec alți 13 ani pe social media. Mark și cu mine am văzut lucrurile un pic diferit. . . eu gândi noi sunt încă investigare u00a0la fel de un industrie, Cum do tu echilibru protectoare intimitate de oamenii lui informație și continuarea u00a0la a pastra oameni în siguranță, a spus Cox.

n

În legătură cu faptul că trecerea către criptare a făcut parte din asta, a spus că consideră că criptarea este „grozavă: și că„ Oferă o cantitate enormă de protecție ”, dar a menționat„ inu face cu siguranță unele dintre aceste lucruri mai complicate ”în ceea ce privește confidențialitatea și echilibrul de siguranță. El a completat eforturile Facebook de a construi modalități de a prinde actori răi, chiar dacă sunt protejați de criptare. Aceasta include inițiative de alfabetizare digitală în Brazilia și India înaintea alegerilor și oferirea de sisteme de transmitere pentru trimiterea de informații discutabile verificatorilor de fapt. "Cred că există argumente pro și contra cu aceste sisteme și nu sunt un hard-liner pentru niciunul dintre ele", a spus Cox și a remarcat că ceea ce construiește Facebook este "rezonant cu ceea ce își doresc oamenii."

n

Cox a fost întrebat despre dezbaterea majoră despre dacă Facebook ar trebui să permită publicitate politică. „Credem că publicitatea politică poate fi bună și utilă. Adesea favorizează și vine în fața versanților. ”Totuși, la verificarea faptelor, el a spus:„ Sunt un mare fan ”, chiar dacă Facebook nu aplică asta anunțurilor politice. El a notat că „eu gândi companie ar trebui să investiga și este investigare micro vizare. . . dacă există sute de variantele fiind alerga de creator atunci u00a0este complicat la obține ta arme în jurul ceea ce este fiind a spus. ”De asemenea, el a pledat pentru mai mult context în interfața de utilizator care distinge reclame politice. u00a0

Următoarele proiecte ale lui Cox

n

De la părăsirea Facebook, Cox s-a alăturat comitetului consultativ al unui grup numit Acronim, care ajută la crearea campaniei și a tehnologiei de mesagerie pentru candidații progresivi. „Acest este un zonă Unde Ale mele percepţie este acea progresiștii avea fost in spate pe abilitate la dezvolta și utilizare la fel de A echipă infrastructură acea ajută tu avea A bun alegător dosar, cum să dezvolta mesagerie - u00a0doar de bază politică în 2019.“

n

Lauren Goode de la Wired a întrebat dacă se aliniază cu progresiștii, luând o poziție politică și dacă poate face asta în timp ce este încă pe Facebook. „Absolut nu, a răspuns Cox.Și De ce este acea eu gândi cand ești în A foarte u00a0senior rol la A platformă, ai datoria să fii mult mai neutru în politica ta. ”

n

A ieșit apoi cu o declarație îndrăzneață activată de independența sa. „Cred că Trump nu ar trebui să fie președintele nostru. Celălalt lucru de care mă interesează foarte mult acum este schimbările climatice și el nu ne va ajuta acolo. "

n

n

Acest lucru a dus la Cox să discute că a lucrat și pentru a sfătui pornirea din San Francisco Planet Labs, care utilizează imagini prin satelit pentru a urmări schimbările climatice. „ viziune a fost la construi aceste mic, despre pantofcutie-mărimea sateliți cu solar panou panou aripi și avea A flota de lor în spaţiu, care este real-timp imagistica Pământ."

n

Cu aceste date, Cox a explicat că puteți urmări incendii, defrișări, centrale electrice pe cărbune, gaz metan și multe altele. Atunci, "Tu poate sa start la a contribui la având A sănătate sistem, Unde tu sunt pe scurt imagistica Pământ fiecare ora, și atunci ești crearea de niste public date a stabilit cu unelte acea priza în decizie factorii de decizie, bănci, asigurare companii, factorii de decizie, investitorii, jurnaliștii, studenții ... ”

n

Întrebat despre responsabilitatea tehnologiei mari de a aborda schimbările climatice, Cox a spus „eu gândi la foarte cel mai puţin este luare A angajament la fiind carbon-negative.“

n

Munca Acronim și Planet Labs se întrepătrunde, deoarece Cox consideră că datele climatice dovedesc nevoia de cineva nou în Oficiul Oval. În timp ce Cox nu a discutat la fața locului, Wired l-a listat ca făcând parte din grupul Shasta, care este propriul vehicul al lui Cox pentru a contribui la aceste proiecte. Totuși, nu este pregătit să lanseze o companie cu drepturi depline în domeniul politicilor și al climatului. „Sunt încă asa de tineri u00a0la acest camp acea eu nu avea destul încredere în Ale mele propriu mental model de lume."

n

Cox a concluzionat că, prin valorificarea angajaților companiei mari și prin conducerea echipei, a pus mai multă atenție asupra schimbărilor climatice, „eu do gândi tech poate sa plumb.“ u00a0

Cuvântul oficial a dat dovadă de la autoritățile federale cu privire la o cauză potențială a bolii misterului care afectează utilizatorii de vape: Vitamina E acetat, o substanță chimică găsită în unele produse vaporoase, care s-a dovedit că a rămas mult timp în plămâni. Constatarea a fost numită „descoperire”, dar este departe de ultimul cuvânt al situației.

n

Din păcate, afecțiunea a pretins deja viața a cel puțin 39 de persoane și mai mult de 2.000 de cazuri au fost raportate colectiv din fiecare stat, dar din Alaska. În prezent, singurul sfat oferit a fost să nu te mai aburi.

n

Într-o teleconferință media, șefii anchetei de la Centrele pentru controlul și prevenirea bolilor au explicat baza pentru indicarea degetului spre acetat de vitamina E. Substanța a fost citată ca o posibilă problemă încă de la început, dar doar testările recente au stabilit-o ca fiind un suspect de bună credință, a explicat echipa.

n

Probele prelevate din plămâni a 29 de victime ale afecțiunii au fost trimise din 10 state diferite, iar acetat de vitamina E a fost găsit în toate. „Aceste descoperiri oferă dovezi directe ale acetatului de vitamina E ca site principal al vătămării în plămâni”, a declarat Anne Schuchat, director adjunct principal al CDC .

n

Deși a fost de acord că aceste dovezi reprezintă o „descoperire”, a menționat că în prezent este doar un corelativ constatarea u2014 mai multe cercetări sunt necesare pentru a stabili legătura de cauzalitateși anume mecanismul vătămării, deși s-au făcut alte lucrări în acea zonă.

n

Cercetarile anterioare care nu sunt CDC sugereaza ca atunci cand acetatul de vitamina E este inhalat, acesta poate interfera cu functia pulmonara normala, a spus ea.

n

„Este important să rețineți că aceste descoperiri nu exclud alți compuși sau ingrediente posibile care ar putea cauza aceste leziuni pulmonare”, a continuat ea. „Pot exista mai multe cauze ale focarului.”

nn

La fel de importante sunt statisticile implicate cu sursele substanțelor în cauză. Așa cum am menționat anterior în anchetă, o proporție uriașă dintre cei care suferă de această afecțiune foloseau produse THC și, în mod special, achiziționate prin canale nereglementate, cum ar fi dealerii de stradă.

n

S-a putut adăuga acetat de vitamina E în scopul tăierii esențiale a produsului, a menționat Schuchat ca răspuns la o întrebare la apel.

n

„Acest lucru se poate face în scopul ilicit sau în scopul de a dilua materialele, făcându-l să pară frumos și poate să nu fie nevoie să folosească atât de mult THC sau alte ingrediente active”, a spus ea.

n

Alte substanțe chimice potențial periculoase au fost identificate în produsele de vape atunci când sunt încălzite și aerosolizate, inclusiv multe dintre acestea chiar și creatorii nu ar fi putut prezice.

n

Cunoașterea unui potențial vinovat nu stă la baza problemei, ceea ce ar fi că acest produs chimic (poate printre altele) s-a acumulat deja de-a lungul a câteva luni sau ani în plămânii utilizatorilor frecventi de vape. Tratamentul este o linie paralelă de cercetare, dar cunoașterea a cel puțin unei substanțe responsabile ar trebui să fie utilă.

n

Recomandările anterioare ale CDC rămân în continuare, oficialii au menționat: sfătuiesc să se evite vaporarea cu totul, deoarece în prezent există foarte puține controale asupra ingredientelor care sunt permise în produsele vape și ce trebuie declarate pe ambalaj sau, într-adevăr, dacă aceste declarații sunt în în orice mod exact.

how to win customers and influence consumers at Disrupt Berlin","content":{"rendered":"

Every startup is a story and every startup’s success depends — on some level — on how well they can either tell that story or get that story told.

n

The best stories are the ones that create an instant brand. One that sparks a relationship or a moment of inspiration with customers and consumers alike. Those are the stories that transform industries and re-contextualize how businesses think of themselves and their competition.

n

On the Extra Crunch Stage at Disrupt Berlin three of the finest practitioners of the dark arts of branding, public relations, marketing and communications will share their tips and tricks on how to get coverage for a company and how to use that coverage to get at the strategic objectives that companies need to fulfill as they grow.

n

These alchemists of allusive include Collette Ballou, the founder of the eponymous Ballou PR; Katy Turner, the managing director of Multiple; and longtime public relations pro, Joanna Kirk.

n

Ballou began her career in European public relations in the aftermath of the dot-com collapse in the U.S. in 2001. Both an investor and an entrepreneur, Ballou has worked with startups and investment firms including 83 North, Accel Partners, Box, Criteo, Eventbrite, Facebook, GoEuro (now Omio), Lakestar, Pinterest, Stack Overflow, Stripe, TransferWise, Twilio, Waze, WhatsApp and Zendesk. She also is an investor in venture funds, including Cavalry Ventures and Connect Ventures.

n

Before founding Multiple, Turner worked in several different roles across the tech industry in the U.K. and Europe. She began her career at Orange (in a time when it was actually cool to work for a mobile operator, she says). That role led to positions at Eden Ventures, Videoplaza and as the chief marketing officer at Tech City UK. In addition to her work at Multiple, Turner also serves as a mentor for Seedcamp and Techstars and sits on the investment committee for the University of Bristol’s Enterprise Fund.

Will this be as poorly attended as SF Disrupt and essentially a series of agendaed and scripted press conferences?

Recently, I shared the responses from several London-based investors; today, we spoke to eight of New Yorku2019s top consumer VCs:

  • Rebecca Kaden, Partner at Union Square Ventures
  • n
  • David Tisch, Founding Partner at BoxGroup
  • n
  • Anu Duggal, Founding Partner at Female Founders Fund

  • Eric Reiner, Partner at Sinai Ventures

Consumer health and banking startups were recurring areas of interest, and there’s a sense that apps and product brands which provide a deeper sense of community are an untapped opportunity.

n

Rebecca Kaden, Partner at Union Square Ventures

n

At USV, we are focused on opportunities that broaden access by leveraging technology to increase value and decrease cost in big buckets of consumer spend. In doing so, we are looking for ways to make products and services previously available to a select segment available to many more. In particular, we have been investing in areas of consumer health where the delivery mechanism not only makes the care more convenient but also more affordable and higher quality; products and platforms in financial services that change the traditional underlying model to drive financial health for a mass customer; and opportunities that create new access to education both for kids and lifelong learners.u00a0

n

Within each of these segments, I’ve been very interested in how new communities are forming inside products–users that come for a specific offering are forming allegiance and increasing engagement by interacting with other users. I think that is a trend we will only see accelerate.

n

David Tisch, Founding Partner at BoxGroup

n

People are bored on their phones, not of their phones. I am most excited to meet founders working on consumer apps that bring happiness and fun to a mass consumer audience, as I continue to believe we are in the early days of mobile and the app store is not dead.

n

These apps may look like a game, they may be a game, or they may be a new feed, but TikTok, Twitch, HQ, Yolo and other Snap app kit apps, Tinder and others have shown consumers want new apps, the barrier for adoption and retention isu00a0 just very high. All apps and games have a half-life, creating something with a very long one is really hard, but the demand is sitting on the phone scrolling thorough feeds, waiting for some new fun. We are excited about apps that allow people to interact with others in different ways, in new worlds, using new hardware, or new interfaces.

nn

Anu Duggal, Founding Partner at Female Founders Fund

n

With the rise of the sober curious movement, we invested in Kin Euphorics, offering consumers a sexy option to an alcoholic drink, creating a social experience around a non-alcoholic beverage that doesnu2019t exist in the market today. With beer sales decreasing five years in a row, brands like Heineken are offering alcohol-free alternatives catering to this growing audience.

n

With the decline of religion, we have seen the rise of what we call the u201crise of the alternate community.u201d Consumers are looking for ways to connect online and offline based on specific interests. Examples of this in our portfolio include The Wonder, a membership model for familyhood, Peanut, a social network for modern motherhood, and Co-Star, an astrology app.

Horowitz launches free crypto startup school","content":"rendered":"

Last month, Andreessen Horowitz (a16z) general partner Chris Dixon announced at TechCrunch Disrupt that the VC firm would run a free crypto startup school. Și compania își lansează oficial astăzi școala. Applications are now open and you have four weeks to apply.

n

Cu această inițiativă, a16z vrea să democratizeze criptomonedele. Dixon and the a16z team has been involved in the cryptocurrency/blockchain space for seven years, and the firm now wants to share some of its learnings with entrepreneurs.

n

This way, it could give a boost to the crypto community, which could create investment opportunities for a16z down the road u2014 a16z says clearly that participating in the crypto startup school doesn’t mean you’ll receive an investment from a16z. It also positions a16z as a thoughtful investor when it comes to crypto startup investments u2014 not just for participants of the crypto startup school but for the crypto community at large.

n

The a16z Crypto Startup School will be a seven-week program that starts February 21, 2020. The program is free and a16z doesnu2019t take any equity.

n

Prelegerile vor avea loc în Parcul Menlo, așa că va trebui să vă bazați în Silicon Valley sau să fiți dispuși să vă petreceți câteva luni acolo. And because a16z knows that it can be challenging to move to another country just to attend this program, the firm will also be recording all lectures. Oricine va putea viziona videoclipuri și descărca materiale curriculare mai târziu.

n

Hereu2019s a sneak peek of the course outline:

n
n
    n
  • Ce sunt rețelele Crypto și de ce contează?
  • n
  • Primitive de calcul Blockchain: criptografie și consens
  • n
  • Prezentare generală a instrumentelor de dezvoltare a aplicațiilor
  • n
  • Aplicații: astăzi și 2025
  • n
  • Modele de afaceri Crypto
  • n
  • Cryptoeconomics
  • n
  • UX, Dezvoltarea produselor și securitate
  • n
  • Strategie de piață și relații pentru dezvoltatori
  • n
  • Participarea și guvernarea comunității
  • n
  • Peisaj și considerente de reglementare
  • n
  • Ghid de strângere de fonduri
  • n
n
n

As you can, itu2019s a mix of lectures purely focused on cryptocurrencies as well as broader startup 101 lessons (fundraising, go-to-market strategy, etc.).

n

The program is looking for 20 to 25 teams, which should represent approximately 40 participants. You should have prior experience when it comes to building software products, but you donu2019t need to be a crytpo expert. Participants can expect 12 to 15 hours of lectures, workshops, mentorship and networking opportunities per week.

n

La sfârșitul cursului, participanții vor prezenta o idee de proiect sau un prototip în timpul unei zile demo.

Recently, I shared the responses from several London-based investors; today, we spoke to eight of New Yorku2019s top consumer VCs:

Consumer health and banking startups were recurring areas of interest, and there’s a sense that apps and product brands which provide a deeper sense of community are an untapped opportunity.

Rebecca Kaden, Partner at Union Square Ventures

At USV, we are focused on opportunities that broaden access by leveraging technology to increase value and decrease cost in big buckets of consumer spend. In doing so, we are looking for ways to make products and services previously available to a select segment available to many more. In particular, we have been investing in areas of consumer health where the delivery mechanism not only makes the care more convenient but also more affordable and higher quality; products and platforms in financial services that change the traditional underlying model to drive financial health for a mass customer; and opportunities that create new access to education both for kids and lifelong learners.u00a0

n

Within each of these segments, I’ve been very interested in how new communities are forming inside products–users that come for a specific offering are forming allegiance and increasing engagement by interacting with other users. I think that is a trend we will only see accelerate.

n

David Tisch, Founding Partner at BoxGroup

n

People are bored on their phones, not of their phones. I am most excited to meet founders working on consumer apps that bring happiness and fun to a mass consumer audience, as I continue to believe we are in the early days of mobile and the app store is not dead.

n

These apps may look like a game, they may be a game, or they may be a new feed, but TikTok, Twitch, HQ, Yolo and other Snap app kit apps, Tinder and others have shown consumers want new apps, the barrier for adoption and retention isu00a0 just very high. All apps and games have a half-life, creating something with a very long one is really hard, but the demand is sitting on the phone scrolling thorough feeds, waiting for some new fun. We are excited about apps that allow people to interact with others in different ways, in new worlds, using new hardware, or new interfaces.

Anu Duggal, Founding Partner at Female Founders Fund

n

With the rise of the sober curious movement, we invested in Kin Euphorics, offering consumers a sexy option to an alcoholic drink, creating a social experience around a non-alcoholic beverage that doesnu2019t exist in the market today. With beer sales decreasing five years in a row, brands like Heineken are offering alcohol-free alternatives catering to this growing audience.

n

With the decline of religion, we have seen the rise of what we call the u201crise of the alternate community.u201d Consumers are looking for ways to connect online and offline based on specific interests. Examples of this in our portfolio include The Wonder, a membership model for familyhood, Peanut, a social network for modern motherhood, and Co-Star, an astrology app.

Indonesian capital will impact nation’s startup ecosystem","content":"rendered":"

Recently reelected, Indonesian President Joko Widodou00a0announced a desire to move the nation’s capital from Jakarta to the East Kalimantan region, citing environmental concerns, the most exigent of these being the fact that Jakarta is literally sinking due to the uncontrolled extraction of groundwater. Widodo said he wished to separate Indonesiau2019s government from its business and economic hub in Jakarta.

n

However, what would a move from Jakarta do to Indonesiau2019s burgeoning startup economy?

n

Shifting administrative governmental hubs

n

According to Widodo, studies have determined that the best site for the proposed new capital is between North Penajam Paser and Kutai Kertanegara, both located in East Kalimantan. The basis of this selection is due to studies highlighting the regionu2019s relative protection from natural disasters, especially when compared to other regions. This would definitely be a benefit for the governmental heart of Indonesia, ensuring continuous administrative functions in a disaster-prone region. Other governments have separated administrative centers from their economic hubs with varying degrees of success, with some examples being Brazilu2019s creation of Brasu00edlia, as well as Koreau2019s projected move from Seoul to Sejong.

n

What is most interesting to note from prior examples is that these newer branched-out cities are non-surprisingly, heavily government-centric. In Brasu00edlia, roles tied to the government make up nearly 40% of all jobs, while in Sejong, a lack of facilities like public transit and commercial mall space cause many to commute into Sejong for government work, instead of permanently settling in the area. Given the semi-undeveloped nature of East Kalimantan, these anecdotes are quite troubling if the government is actually moving to North Penajam Paser or Kutai Kertanegara.

n

These facts raise the question of economic impacts of such governmental moves. In fact, one may even opine that while these moves do allow for governmental growth, ultimately, they may hurt the country economically due to a divestment between both government and economic hubs. In this specific instance, it is most important to analyze the impact of such a move on Indonesiau2019s startup economy, as the nation is one the worldu2019s leaders in startup growth.

n

Indonesiau2019s startup economy

n

Indonesia has emerged as a startup hub within Southeast Asia in recent years, with its population of over 260 million marking it as the worldu2019s fourth-most populous country. Additionally, Indonesiau2019s mobile-first population has enabled the full embrace of the internet era, with 95% of all internet users in Indonesia connected to the web via a mobile device.

n

Similarly, startup growth has boomed in the island archipelago, with several Indonesian-based unicorns disrupting local, regional, and global economies. Softbank-backed ecommerce giant Tokopedia is currently in talksu00a0for a pre-IPO funding round, while emerging super-app Gojek controls significant portions of the ride-sharing industry in Asia, simultaneously expanding intou00a0separate industriesu00a0to include digital payments, food delivery, and evenu00a0video-streaming. Additionally, online travel portal Traveloka (in which Expedia has a minority stake) has recentlyu00a0entered the financial services space, furthering its impact within Asia. These specific examples of high-growth startups demonstrate a population hungry for innovation, further driving the developing startup economy.

A move to East Kalimantan would allow for further development in the startup industry, with a focus on ecommerce and sustainability-focused enterprises.

Academy is scaling up a coding program for ‘the heartland’","content":"rendered":"

The crowded landscape of programs teaching non-technical people to become software developers has been a proving ground for a new model of education financing: income share agreements (ISAs). With an ISA, students avoid paying tuition upfront or taking out private loans, instead paying a percentage of their income for a time after graduation after they’re earning a minimum income.

n

The model aligns education providers with students’ career outcomes, and one startup is staking a claim to be the leader in the space; Kenzie Academy, a year-long program with a physical campus in Indianapolis u2014 and a student body that’s 66 percent online u2014 announced a partnership with Community Investment Management (CIM) earlier this week that provides $100 million in debt to cover the operating costs associated with students who defer payment through ISAs.

n

Kenzie co-founder and CEO Chok Ooi says that core to Kenzie’s mission is the goal that its graduates “can stay in the heartland and attract more jobs so that someone coming out of the Midwest no longer has to move to Silicon Valley or New York to have a successful career in tech.” This $100 million is one of the largest commitments yet to financing ISAs and Kenzie is using it to recruit a more diverse population of students who may not be able to afford tuition or qualify for student loans otherwise.

n

I interviewed Ooi to understand how Kenzie differentiates itself from competitors, how it has iterated its model to improve retention and job placement and how he expects the ISA market to evolve over the next couple years. Here’s the transcript of our conversation, edited for length and clarity:

n

Eric Peckham: The landscape of software developer training programs is crowded. Where did you see an opportunity to do something different, and how do you position Kenzie relative to others in the market?

n

Chok Ooi: My co-founder came from Galvanize, so we observed firsthand the proliferation of tech and coding boot camps. These are typically short-term, three-to-five month programs and they tend to do well serving people with college degrees. I would say that they are disrupting the masters’ program space. We saw a major gap in programs that serve a much larger demographic of people who are much earlier in their development. People who never went to college, or did a little bit of college and dropped out, or just never had a professional work experience. A three-month training is insufficient to get them to a point where they could land a technical job and be successful.

n

We saw an opportunity to bring high-quality tech education to the American heartland that is 12 months in length. For about two-thirds of our students, this is their first post-secondary credential training.

n

We are giving them not just the technical skills, but elements from a traditional four-year college as well, like critical thinking, problem-solving and communication skills.

n

Compared to those other bootcamps or training programs, is Kenzie targeting different job outcomes for its graduates?

n

We did a survey of our students that asked them to name the top five tech companies they desired to work for. None of the Silicon Valley companies made the list other than Salesforce. Indianapolis is the second largest Salesforce office outside of San Francisco. The rest of the companies our students named were companies like DMI and Zylo that people in Silicon Valley don’t hear about but are doing very well in the Midwest. Their friends work there. They’re a fabric of the community. If we really want to create job opportunities for the rest of America, we cannot adopt the Silicon Valley mindset.

n

So how do you evaluate technical aptitude and critical thinking in the admissions process? What’s that process look like, and how has it evolved over the last couple of years? What have you learned in order to make that more effective?

n

Prior to founding Kenzie, I started a company nine years ago called AglityIO. The model for AgilityIO was similar to companies like Andela. We were trying to solve the talent crunch in the Bay Area by recruiting and training people with the raw talent in Vietnam. Today, that company works with Google, Uber, NerdWallet, Meetup.com and 150 other tech companies. So Iu2019ve experience in developing processes to identify raw talent in this context.

n

As people are doing the online assessments, we collect data points of how long it takes for them to solve the problem, what their different decision points are and things like that. Then as they get enrolled in Kenzie, we continue to collect attendance data, grades, and then placement data and use that to look at success and failure cases. We constantly refine our assessment.

n

Are you seeing any particular pattern or cluster in the applications youu2019re receiving or the candidates youu2019re accepting in terms of prior field of employment or aspect of their background?

Microsoft Research is a globally loc de joacă distribuit pentru persoanele interesate de rezolvarea problemelor fundamentale de știință.

n

These projects often focus on machine learning and artificial intelligence, and since Microsoft is on a mission to infuse all of its products with more AI smarts, it’s no surprise that it’s also seeking ways to integrate Microsoft Research’s inovații în restul companiei.

n

Dintr-o administrație, compania încearcă să găsească modalități de a deveni mai inovatoare, în special în ceea ce privește activitatea sa în AI și pune la dispoziție procese pentru a face acest lucru. Microsoft is unusually open about this process, too, and actually made it somewhat of a focus this week at Ignite, a yearly conference that typically focuses more on technical IT management topics.

n

At Ignite,u00a0Microsoft will for the first time present these projects externally at a dedicated keynote. That feels similar to what Google used to do with its ATAP group at its I/O events and is obviously meant to showcase the cutting-edge innovation that happens inside of Microsoft (outside of making Excel smarter).

n

To manage its AI innovation efforts, Microsoft created the Microsoft AI group led by VP Mitra Azizirad, who’s tasked with establishing thought leadership in this space internally and externally, and helping the company itself innovate faster (Microsoft’s AI for Good projects also fall under this group’s purview). M-am așezat cu Azizirad pentru a-mi face o idee mai bună despre ce face echipa ei și despre cum se apropie pentru ca companiile să inoveze în jurul AI și să aducă proiecte de cercetare din laborator.

n

„Am început să punem la punct o narațiune pentru companie despre ceea ce înseamnă cu adevărat să fii într-o lume orientată către AI și ce privim dintr-o perspectivă diferențiată”, a spus Azizirad. „Ceea ce am făcut în acest domeniu este ceva care a rezonat și a aterizat bine. Și acum includem AI, dar ne extindem dincolo de aceasta la alte schimbări de paradigmă, cum ar fi interacțiunea om-mașină, viitorul calculului și responsabilitatea digitală, ca mai mult decât un set de principii și practici, dar un domeniu de inovație în și de în sine.“

n

Currently, Microsoft is doing a very good job at talking and thinking about horizon one opportunities, as well as horizon three projects that are still years out, she said. „Orizontul doi, trebuie să ne îmbunătățim și la asta facem”.

n

It’s worth stressing that Microsoft AI, which launched about two years ago, marks the first time there’s a business, marketing and product management team associated with Microsoft Research, astfel încât echipa obține o mulțime de informații despre tehnologiile viitoare. Chiar în ultimii doi ani, Microsoft a publicat peste 6.000 de lucrări de cercetare despre AI, unele dintre ele având în mod clar un viitor în produsele companiei.

Securing a green card can feel overwhelming for people in Silicon Valley who were born in India and China. But with the right help and guidance from a skilled immigration attorney, the process can be simpler, smoother and more successful.

n

Limits written into existing immigration laws on both the number of green cards issued each year, as well as the number of green cards available based on country of origin, leave some waiting half a century or more for a green card, with people from India and China facing the longest wait times for employment-based green cards.

n

In this fiscal year, which ended on October 31, 226,000 family-sponsored green cards and 141,918 employment-based green cards were available. And the per-country cap, which is the maximum number of green cards available to individuals born in a particular country, was 25,754.u00a0

n

Although these U.S. laws pose an extra challenge for people born in countries with the highest demand for green cards, if you were born in India or China, there are some things you can do to mitigate this wait.

n

Differentiate yourself

n

The EB-1 green card is considered the u201cfirst preferenceu201d for those who’ll receive offers for employment-based green cards. It offers three unique and accelerated sub-paths:u00a0

n
    n
  • EB-1A green card for individuals of extraordinary abilityu00a0
  • n
  • EB-1B green card for outstanding researchers and professors
  • n
  • EB-1C green card for multinational managers and executives
  • n
n

EB-1A green card for extraordinary ability does not require an employer sponsor or even a job offer, which means itu2019s one of the few self-petition green cards. To demonstrate eligibility,u00a0you must be able to show you have extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics and that you and your work have received national or international acclaim.u00a0

n

Individuals who apply for the EB-1A do not need to obtain labor certification (as required of employers). That means the process is simpler and can be much faster than typical employment-based green cards. Also, an individual applicant may have more flexibility to change jobs than if an employer applied on their behalf.

n

EB-1B green card for outstanding researchers and professors requires an employer to sponsor you. Candidates for the EB-1B green card must demonstrate great achievements in their academic field.u00a0

n

And finally, the EB-1C green card for multinational managers and executives enables an employer to bring an executive or manager who has been working abroad over to the U.S. to live and work. The EB-1C candidate must have worked outside the U.S. for the employer for at least one year.

n

This Cato Institute analysis estimates individuals born in China and India face waiting eight and nine years, respectively, for an EB-1 green card.u00a0Despite the small and growing backlog for EB-1 green cards for individuals born in China and India, it still remains one of the quicker options.

Recently reelected, Indonesian President Joko Widodou00a0announced a desire to move the nation’s capital from Jakarta to the East Kalimantan region, citing environmental concerns, the most exigent of these being the fact that Jakarta is literally sinking due to the uncontrolled extraction of groundwater. Widodo said he wished to separate Indonesiau2019s government from its business and economic hub in Jakarta.

n

However, what would a move from Jakarta do to Indonesiau2019s burgeoning startup economy?

n

Shifting administrative governmental hubs

n

According to Widodo, studies have determined that the best site for the proposed new capital is between North Penajam Paser and Kutai Kertanegara, both located in East Kalimantan. The basis of this selection is due to studies highlighting the regionu2019s relative protection from natural disasters, especially when compared to other regions. This would definitely be a benefit for the governmental heart of Indonesia, ensuring continuous administrative functions in a disaster-prone region. Other governments have separated administrative centers from their economic hubs with varying degrees of success, with some examples being Brazilu2019s creation of Brasu00edlia, as well as Koreau2019s projected move from Seoul to Sejong.

n

What is most interesting to note from prior examples is that these newer branched-out cities are non-surprisingly, heavily government-centric. In Brasu00edlia, roles tied to the government make up nearly 40% of all jobs, while in Sejong, a lack of facilities like public transit and commercial mall space cause many to commute into Sejong for government work, instead of permanently settling in the area. Given the semi-undeveloped nature of East Kalimantan, these anecdotes are quite troubling if the government is actually moving to North Penajam Paser or Kutai Kertanegara.

n

These facts raise the question of economic impacts of such governmental moves. In fact, one may even opine that while these moves do allow for governmental growth, ultimately, they may hurt the country economically due to a divestment between both government and economic hubs. In this specific instance, it is most important to analyze the impact of such a move on Indonesiau2019s startup economy, as the nation is one the worldu2019s leaders in startup growth.

n

Indonesiau2019s startup economy

n

Indonesia has emerged as a startup hub within Southeast Asia in recent years, with its population of over 260 million marking it as the worldu2019s fourth-most populous country. Additionally, Indonesiau2019s mobile-first population has enabled the full embrace of the internet era, with 95% of all internet users in Indonesia connected to the web via a mobile device.

n

Similarly, startup growth has boomed in the island archipelago, with several Indonesian-based unicorns disrupting local, regional, and global economies. Softbank-backed ecommerce giant Tokopedia is currently in talksu00a0for a pre-IPO funding round, while emerging super-app Gojek controls significant portions of the ride-sharing industry in Asia, simultaneously expanding intou00a0separate industriesu00a0to include digital payments, food delivery, and evenu00a0video-streaming. Additionally, online travel portal Traveloka (in which Expedia has a minority stake) has recentlyu00a0entered the financial services space, furthering its impact within Asia. These specific examples of high-growth startups demonstrate a population hungry for innovation, further driving the developing startup economy.

A move to East Kalimantan would allow for further development in the startup industry, with a focus on ecommerce and sustainability-focused enterprises.
