  • At Infocomm Live right now #idalive #
  • Mr. Matthias Kunze giving a talk on winning ways of an entrepreneur. #idalive #
  • Family and friends are your biggest enemies when starting businesses? #idalive #
  • Why be an entrepreneur? For Kunze, it’s about the lifestyle. #idalive #
  • Lots of people are thinking of selling your business. It’s a good motivation if you have that thought in mind. #idalive #
  • Ask yourself if you are hands on enough to start your own business? #idalive #
  • Be honest and ask yourself if you have sufficient experience before starting a business. #idalive #
  • Kunze claims that self-confidence and experience plays a tremendous part in starting a business. #idalive #
  • Be prepared to handle situations of failure. Can you handle failure? #idalive #
  • And why should you go into business in this case? Kunze leads us to third portion of his presentation – Passion is Key. #idalive #
  • Lack of passion leads to failure. #idalive #
  • Part 4. The British Airways Lounge. #idalive #
  • During the downturn, lots of things are cheaper. #idalive That’s the right time. #

  • What is ur exit strategy? Answer: I am happy to sell when the time is right. #idalive #
  • Part 8. Build the right team. #idalive #
  • Kunze once teamed up with a guy much younger, much different. Internet exploded and security wasn’t. But he had different values. #idalive #
  • Kunze doesn’t see eye to eye with him. The mindset difference may cause businesses to fail. Didn’t work out in the end. #idalive #
  • Some tough decision includes firing a person. It’s painful but you have to make these decisions. #idalive #
  • Last slide, One wing birds can’t fly. #idalive #
  • Singaporeans have high work ethics. However too high work ethics may lead to burn out. It affects lifestyle. #idalive #

  • Currently in The Chamber at The Arts House. It’s a beautiful room #idalive This is where the old paliarment is at. I think. #
  • Kunze thinks Yahoo is still interesting as a company but highlights the enjoyment he gets working for Yahoo. #idalive #
  • Once again, you can following @floatingroom to see what’s on the right screen. #idalive #
  • I wonder if there is a bug with @floatingroom ‘s tweets. Opps. #idalive #
  • Would you recommend corporate experience before doing a startup? #idalive #
  • Kunze feels a good college education helps. #idalive Although he points out several success. Exceptions are there of course. #
  • Audience can ask questions now. #idalive #
  • Mohan looks lost on stage. #idalive #
  • Kunze moves nearer and nearer to the people who questions. #idalive Mohan, the moderator, couldn’t moderate, haha #
  • Want to know a VC? Helps that you know people who know people to introduce you. #idalive #
  • Connections is key too. #idalive #
  • Do you think being physically fit contributes to being mentally fit? Kunze agrees while I feel this sense of guilt. #idalive #
  • Okay no more Michael Phleps. #idalive #

  • Saw Zhu Hou Ren ๆœฑๅŽšไปป in Media Business Forum, we are the only ones using laptop it seems. #mbf09 #
  • The new iPod Shuffle is nice, but, shame on Apple restricting the users’ earphone choices. #
  • I always found stretched presentations awful to look at. #mbf09 #
  • Over the next 5 years, SGD230m would be injected into the media sector, expected to spur creation of 2,000 jobs. #mbf09 #
  • Media Training and Attachment (META) matches 150 local media professionals to companies starting Apr’09. #mbf09 #
  • Six more presentations and I’m hungry now! #mbf09 #

  • We love the MDA Rap music video don’t we? #mbf09 The superman in the video is talking right now. #
  • Powerpoint yellow, powerpoint gold, powerpoint cyan and your favorite Arial font, MDA presentation could’ve looked better. #mbf09 #
  • Achievement in broadcast, 2180 local hours, 900 jobs! #mbf09 #
  • The Little Nyonya (by MediaCorp Studios) is the highest rated show in 15 years, viewed by 1 in 3 in Singapore. #mbf09 #
  • MDA targets 2380 local hours and 1280 jobs for broadcast in 2009. #mbf09 #
  • Public Service Programmes are values we believe in? And it can be international? Seems contradictory. #mbf09 #
  • MDA thinking of partnering with Joost? #mbf09 #
  • Yet another government agency using the word “hub”. We want to be another hub again… #mbf09 #
  • @claudia10 I got 3 hours more! #
  • I just asked @uzyn if Kenneth Tan (COO, MDA) is in the video too. LOL #mbf09 #
  • Kenneth Tan’s presentation has a text line height problem. Plus it is stretched. #mbf09 #
  • @claudia10, mine is a 6 cell instead of a usual 3-cell. Anyway, the battery bar always lies. When it says 3hr, it’s actually 2. #
  • Kenneth breaks down the ecosystem of film: Optioning, development, production, distribution, exhibition. #mbf09 #
  • Kenneth adds that Singapore is lacking in optioning and development process. #mbf09 #
  • Stereoscopy is the 3D glasses thingy. #mbf09 #

  • I mean it is Singapore, not Singaporean. #mbf09 #
  • INSPIRE does some sort of a matchmaking service for the media. Helps in distribution. #mbf09 #
  • The current vein diagram is problematic. PowerPoint has Smart Art now by the way. #mbf09 #

  • What the hell are the 5Cs? #mbf09 Why people keep talking about it? #
  • Money Manpower & Mediapolis by Mr. Seto #mbf09 #
  • I think government supported companies slow down startup ideas because startups just wait for funds. #mbf09 #
  • Mr. Seto speaks like a preacher I know. #mbf09 #
  • Mediapolis actually sounds exciting but I hope it won’t be like Biopolis. #mbf09 #
  • This is like the Biopolis slides. #mbf09 #

  • End of presentations at #mbf09. #
  • @melvinkee I have no idea about it. The talk wasn’t clear on these partnerships. #mbf09 in reply to melvinkee #
  • @trudinger Since startups can get gov funds, they may be less inclined to start things by their own and just wait for gov. Waiting hurts. in reply to trudinger #
  • @echoz you at the IT Show? I hate the squeezing and decided against going! Haha #
