Start Up Focus :The making and funding of Spotify

" Start up Inc : Making of spotify"


CEO and Co-Founder of Spotify Daniel Ek became a multimillionaire at age 23 when he sold an online advertising company in his native Sweden in 2006.

Not many know that it was a rejection  from Google which made " Daniel what he has achieved today As a 16 year old he was turned away when he applied for a job at Google. This, daniel says was a start of a journey and a turning point  " when he undertook a resolution' of not letting age interfere with his knowledge and subsequently gave birth to an idea, which he has since never looked back 

The idea behind Spotify was " the opportunity" it gave to  the sputtering music industry to create an alternative to music-piracy services such as Napster. Spotify gives a cut of the revenue to record labels and music publishers, which in turn pay out their artists and songwriters at varying rates.

The major labels – Vivendi SA’s Universal Music Group, Sony Corp.’s Sony Music Entertainment and Access Industries’ Warner Music Group – also own about 15%of the company, collectively. Spotify reported in November that its 2013 revenue was €747 million ($842 million) and it lost €57.8 million ($65 million).


 Spotify revenue model is based on a bait that " offers a limited, free version of its service", hoping users will eventually subscribe. The company counts 15 million subscribers to its $9.99 premium plan, and about 45 million active users of its free, ad-supported version – by far the biggest global user base of any subscription music offering

via Statista

In April 2014, GoPro was listed by Adweek as one of the "Top 10 Best Brand Channels on YouTube" based on a combination of views, shares, comments and overall engagement

 while early this year there were rumors about GoPro  making a quadcopter drone, but few details have since been shared about the project. However today that was confirmed as GoPro had just uploaded the first footage from the drone to its YouTube channel .GoPro ( former  Woodman Labs, Inc), is an American manufacturer of action cameras, often used in extreme-action videography.

The quadcopter drone "video grab were remarkably smooth, and the video also claims that the footage was not stabilized in post, but this could just be a result of careful filming.

In about 13 months since GoPro’s IPO , it is  currently trading at around $60 per share (up 150 percent from its IPO price of $24) and reported another great quarter this week, with the company posting a $35 million profit on revenue of $420 million.

Apple's shrinking Ipad business vs stunning Iphone success

The study of 2 contrasting products from Apple stable : iphone vs iPad


Apple's growth comparison: iPhone vs iPad "

" iPad vs iPhone  sales"
The Ipad continues to bleed as the IPhone continue to ride on unprecedented growth. From a peak of 25 million Ipads  in December 2014.

Ipad shipments  has slumped to 9.9 million last quarter, down 20% year-over-year. However it still managed to do about $4.3 billion this quarter , but whats disappointing, is that this was the first time  that Apple shipped fewer than 10 million iPad's in a quarter since the June 2011 quarter.

 In contrast the story of iPhone is something remarkable.The very fact that iPhone manages to sell upgraded versions year after year, without a  radical change in its product is remarkable. This quarter iPhone made up 63% of  overall Apple revenue ,selling more than 48 million  iPhone's a 22% YoY growth

The biggest growth for Apple came from China, as sales grew  99% year-over-year,mainly due to the early launch of the iPhone there this year.
