O Zoom é o próximo Android ou o próximo BlackBerry?

38

Nos negócios, há nada tão valioso quanto ter o produto certo na hora certa. Basta perguntar ao Zoom, a plataforma de videoconferência baseada em nuvem que está em crescimento explosivo graças à sua súbita relevância na era dos abrigos.

Tendo trabalhado no BlackBerry no auge no início dos anos 2000, vejo muitos paralelos com o que Ampliação está passando agora. Como o zoom em uma reunião em vídeo ou em uma sala de aula é hoje, o mesmo ocorreu com o BlackBerry para enviar um e-mail ou verificar suas ações por volta de 2002. Como o Zoom, a empresa então conhecida como Research in Motion tinha o produto certo para usuários corporativos que cada vez mais queria fazer negócios em movimento.

Obviamente, a história do BlackBerry não teve um final feliz.

De 1999 a 2007, o BlackBerry parecia totalmente imparável. Mas então Steve Jobs anunciou o iPhone, o Google lançou Android e todas as fendas na armadura do BlackBerry começaram a se desfazer, uma a uma. Como o Zoom pode evitar o mesmo destino?

Como alguém que esteve no BlackBerry e no Android durante o apogeu, meu maior argumento é que a experiência com o produto supera todo o resto. É mais importante que a segurança (um problema que o Zoom está sendo criticado no momento), o que os CIOs desejam, a base de instalação dos usuários e a identidade da marca maior.

Quando o iPhone foi lançado, muitas pessoas no BlackBerry apontaram, com razão, que tínhamos uma vantagem técnica na Apple em muitas áreas importantes para usuários corporativos e empresariais (sem mencionar o teclado físico para enviar e-mails rapidamente) … mas quanto isso vantagem importa no final? Se houver uma séria atração no mercado, o resto acabará sendo descoberto … uma lição que aprendi no meu tempo na BlackBerry que tive a sorte de poder aplicar imediatamente quando entrei no Google para trabalhar no Android.

Enquanto isso, o Twitter trocou seu logotipo padrão por uma versão em preto e branco, adicionando uma hashtag Black Lives Matter à sua biografia. Sua conta de diversidade Twitter Together ofereceu a seguinte declaração (via tweet, naturalmente):

n

n

O racismo não adere ao distanciamento social. Em meio ao já crescente medo e incerteza em torno da pandemia, esta semana voltou a chamar a atenção para algo talvez mais difundido: o racismo de longa data e as injustiças enfrentadas diariamente pelos negros e pardos.

n

n

A Amazon também acessou o Twitter, oferecendo a seguinte declaração:

n

n

O tratamento desigual e brutal do povo negro em nosso país deve parar. Juntos, estamos solidários com a comunidade negra, nossos funcionários, clientes e parceiros, na luta contra o racismo sistemático e a injustiça.

n

n

Andy Jassy, ​​chefe da AWS, acrescentou em sua própria conta:

n

n

* O que * será necessário para nos recusarmos a aceitar esses assassinatos injustos de negros? Quantas pessoas devem morrer, quantas gerações precisam suportar, quantos vídeos de testemunhas oculares são necessários? O que mais nós precisamos? Precisamos melhor do que estamos recebendo dos tribunais e dos líderes políticos.

n

n

Muitos foram rápidos em condenar a Amazônia por hipocrisia percebida. Entre os problemas aqui estão as queixas de longa data sobre o tratamento dos trabalhadores, bem como as tecnologias da Amazon Web Services, como reconhecimento facial, que foram utilizadas pela polícia.

n

n

n

n

A ACLU respondeu sem rodeios:

n

n

Tweet legal. Você se comprometerá a parar de vender a tecnologia de vigilância por reconhecimento facial que sobrecarrega os abusos policiais?

n

n

Amazonas parece não ter respondido a esta pergunta mais recente da organização.

n

A dor da semana passada nos lembra até onde nosso país deve ir para dar a cada pessoa a liberdade de viver com dignidade ...

A resposta do Facebook também tem sido uma mistura. Os funcionários foram vocal sobre sua raiva em torno da decisão de Mark Zuckerberg de quebrar com o Twitter deixando Trump durante o saque, o tiroteio inicia a declaração intacta. Mais recentemente, porém, o CEO comprometeu US $ 10 milhões a organizações sem fins lucrativos relevantes, adicionando em uma postagem:

n

n

Para ajudar nessa luta, sei que o Facebook precisa fazer mais para apoiar a igualdade e a segurança da comunidade negra por meio de nossas plataformas. Por mais difícil que fosse assistir, sou grato por Darnella Frazier ter postado no Facebook seu vídeo do assassinato de George Floyd, porque todos precisávamos ver isso. Precisamos saber o nome de George Floyd. Mas está claro que o Facebook também tem mais trabalho a fazer para manter as pessoas seguras e garantir que nossos sistemas não ampliem o viés.

Comentários do CEO da Microsoft, Satya Nadella publicado no LinkedIn abordar brevemente os eventos em Minneapolis, bem como o recente e problemático encontro no Central Park, no qual a polícia foi chamada a Birman, Christian Cooper:

n

n

Nossa identidade, nossa própria existência, está enraizada em capacitar todos no planeta. Portanto, cabe a nós usar nossas plataformas, nossos recursos, para conduzir essa mudança sistêmica, certo? Esse é o verdadeiro desafio aqui. Não é apenas um incidente, mas são todas as coisas que levaram ao incidente que precisam absolutamente mudar.

Enquanto isso, o CEO da Snap, Evan Spiegel, enviou uma carta longa aos funcionários no domingo, escrevendo:

n

n

Certamente, os mesmos Pais Fundadores que defendiam os valores de liberdade, igualdade e justiça para todos eram predominantemente proprietários de escravos. Sua poderosa visão de uma nação criada pelo povo, pois o povo foi construído sobre uma base de preconceito, injustiça e racismo. Sem abordar essa base podre e seus fracassos contínuos em criar oportunidades para todos, estamos impedindo a realização de nossa verdadeira capacidade de progresso humano 2013 e continuaremos a ficar aquém da visão ousada de liberdade, igualdade e justiça para todos. .

n

n

A carta de Spiegel concentra-se em seu trabalho para entender as lutas como um homem jovem, branco e educado (que) teve muita, muita sorte, bem como propostas de métodos financeiros para lidar com a desigualdade. Especificamente, ele pede o estabelecimento de uma Comissão não-partidária da Verdade, Reconciliação e Reparações, bem como um investimento em moradia, saúde e educação.

No domingo, uma quarta noite de protestos eclodiu em todo o país, provocada pela morte de George Floyd, em 25 de maio, pelas mãos da polícia de Minneapolis. O movimento é uma resposta à desigualdade abrangente e sistêmica que viu um número desproporcional de americanos negros sofrer um destino semelhante, com o desesperado suspiro de Floyd (...)

Embora o Google I / O não ocorra este ano devido à pandemia do COVID-19, a empresa está novamente atualizando seu conjunto de ferramentas de bem-estar. Este ano, o foco é oportuno, pois o Google lançará novas ferramentas para dormir, para ajudar as pessoas a dormir melhor.

n

O Google relata um aumento nas consultas de pesquisa relacionadas ao sono, como "insônia" e "não consegue dormir", em abril e maio, pois a crise do coronavírus levou ao aumento do estresse e da ansiedade, o que pode atrapalhar o sono.

n

O modo "Hora de dormir" do Android, anteriormente conhecido como "Desacelerar", usa Não perturbe para silenciar chamadas, textos e notificações, enquanto a escala de cinza desbota as cores do telefone para preto e branco, para reduzir o atrito para a tela. Com as atualizações para esse recurso, o Google facilita a personalização de quando e como o modo de dormir está ativado.

n

Com base no seu horário de dormir, agora você pode optar por ligá-lo automaticamente depois que o telefone for conectado ao carregador. Você também pode adicionar o modo Hora de dormir às Configurações rápidas do seu telefone Android para ativá-lo ou desativá-lo instantaneamente com um único toque. E se precisar de mais alguns minutos, você pode optar por pausar o modo de deitar sem precisar ajustar sua programação.

n

A atualização para o Digital Wellbeing, que incluía a capacidade de ativar automaticamente o modo de dormir quando o telefone está sendo carregado e adicioná-lo às Configurações rápidas, foi lançado no início de maio. Mas o Google está anunciando os recursos hoje como parte de suas outras mudanças no modo de dormir.

n

n

O aplicativo Relógio no Android também está sendo atualizado com uma nova guia Hora de dormir.

n

Aqui, você pode definir horários diários de sono e vigília. No aplicativo, você poderá ver uma visualização da sua agenda para o dia seguinte e contabilizar o número total de horas de sono que receberia. Dessa forma, você pode ajustar sua hora de dormir, se necessário, para sincronizar com a programação de amanhã - mesmo que isso signifique desviar-se da sua programação típica de hora de dormir.

n

n

Além disso, os usuários receberão um lembrete antes de dormir e terão a opção de reproduzir sons calmantes do Calm, Spotify, YouTube Music e outras fontes. Se eles tiverem o Digital Wellbeing instalado, poderão emparelhar com o modo Bedtime para limitar as interrupções durante o sono.

n

O aplicativo também exibirá quanto tempo você está gastando e quais aplicativos você usou após a hora de dormir definida.

n

Além disso, o Google sugeriu que os usuários que procuram dormir melhor podem experimentar a opção "Alarme do nascer do sol" que ilumina gradualmente a tela para ajudá-lo a acordar com mais suavidade. Este sistema de alarme visual começará 15 minutos antes do seu alarme de áudio. Os usuários também podem definir suas músicas favoritas como um alarme para torná-lo menos dissonante, recomenda o Google.

n

O alarme do nascer do sol foi o primeiro introduzido com o Pixel 3 e o Pixel Stand em 2018. Mas, com a atualização, você não precisará mais do suporte para usar o recurso - ele faz parte da nova guia Hora de dormir no aplicativo Relógio.

n

n

Relacionado ao lançamento de hoje dos novos recursos para dormir, o Google observou u00a0 adicionou novos lembretes para dormir antes do YouTube. Ele também suporta uma programação de hora de dormir diária no recurso de controle dos pais do Android, o Family Link.

n

n

A experiência atualizada na hora de dormir será lançada primeiro nos dispositivos Pixel a partir de hoje e será lançada no aplicativo Clock e em outros dispositivos Android no final deste verão. Os dispositivos pixel também receberão várias outras atualizações, incluindo o Adaptive Battery.

n

n

Os dispositivos Pixel 2 e mais recentes notificarão o usuário quando a bateria estiver descarregada, além de limitar o uso do plano de fundo para economizar vida. O excelente aplicativo Recorder agora pode ser acionado com um u201cHey Google u201d e as transcrições podem ser salvas diretamente no Google Docs.

n

O aplicativo de segurança pessoal, introduzido no Pixel 4, está chegando a todos os dispositivos, enquanto o Pixel 3 terá detecção de acidentes de carro. Também há um novo recurso de verificação de segurança desenvolvido para enviar alertas em situações potencialmente perigosas. Por Google:

n

n

Por exemplo, se você estiver prestes a correr ou caminhar sozinho, a verificação de segurança garantirá que você retorne com segurança. Se você não responder ao check-in agendado, o aplicativo alertará seus contatos de emergência. Caso você precise de ajuda imediata ou esteja em uma situação perigosa, o compartilhamento de emergência notifica todos os seus contatos de emergência e compartilha sua localização em tempo real através do Google Maps para que eles possam enviar ajuda ou encontrar você.

n

n

O aplicativo Segurança Pessoal também permitirá que os usuários definam notificações para crises, incluindo desastres naturais e outras preocupações de segurança pública.

acquires Turkey’s Peak Games for $1.8B, after buying its card games studio for $100M in 2017"},"content":{"rendered":"

Today, some news of a huge acquisition out of Turkey that represents the first billion-dollar-plus exit for a startup out of the country. Social gaming company Zynga confirmed that it is buying Istanbul-based Peak Games, the company behind popular Candy-Crush-style mobile gaming apps Toon Blast and Toy Blast, for $1.8 billion — $900 million in cash, and $900 million in Zynga shares.

n

Interestingly, this is the second time that Zynga has made a Peak Games acquisition. In 2017, it purchased the company’s mobile card games business for $100 million (more on that below).

n

The news caps off a short period of speculation about an upcoming deal, with local tech publications like Webrazzi calling the sale (and correct price) last month.

n

Peak’s investors had included European VCs Earlybird and Hummingbird Ventures — both active backers of startups in emerging markets in the region — and Endeavor Global (the nonprofit that invests via its Endeavor Catalystu00a0fund). Sidar Sahin, the founder and CEO, had been the company’s biggest shareholder.

n

As with all M&A in the world of gaming, Zynga is getting a couple of big gains out of this sale.

n

The first is picking up two very popular titles/franchises that it doesn’t have do develop from scratch (in hopes of investing R&D budget in what it hopes but can’t guarantee will be a hit). Toon Blast and Toy Blast together total more than 12 million DAUs. And on top of that, those two games are some of the highest-grossing among all in Apple’s App Store, ranking among the top-10 and top-20 games in the past two years, Zynga noted in its announcement.

n

It’s not just about adding popular games content, but expanding Zynga’s advertising business as well. Significantly, Peak Games’ primary users are outside of Zynga’s home market of the US, representing a real growth opportunity for the company to cross-sell other games. Zynga says that bolting on Peak’s games network to its own will boost its number of mobile daily active users by 60%, which mean a lot of scaling up for its ad network.

n

Of course, sustaining both of those titles and their respective franchises as hits for the long run is not a given — the world of gaming regularly sees blockbusters fizzle out when the next big thing comes along — although these “forever franchises” with their steady popularity have a strong play to be exactly that.

n

However, the long play is also where the third big asset comes in: talent. Peak has 100 employees working on its current franchises and other games. So while the back ends (and revenues) may be getting combined, Zynga says Peak’s people will stay put and continue to work under the Peak brand on the existing franchises as well as on new projects that are already in development.

n

Zynga says the deal will close in the third quarter of 2020, and it’s updated its guidance already on the news, sending its stock up more than 5% in pre-market trading. Specifically, Zynga today said it believes the deal will bump up revenues by $40 million for the year, to $1.840 billion.

n

A startup so nice, Zynga bought it twice

n

The deal is notable not just because of what it’s adding to Zynga today, but because it highlights some interesting history between the two companies.

n

Back in November 2017, Zynga adquirido one division of Peak Games, its mobile card games studio, for $100 million in cash.

n

The deal included games like Spades Plus and Gin Rummy Plus, respectively the largest spade and rummy mobile games in the world at the time; and games that were popular in Peak’s home market, 101 Okey Plus and Okey Plus. And according to analysis from Apptopia, it looks like Zynga was set to recoup the money it paid out by 2019, meaning that business is now profitable.

n

The remainder of Peak Games is another story. If Zynga tried to buy the whole business two years ago, it might have been that Peak was reluctant to sell its remaining two titles — its own Candy Crush crushers — Toon Blast and Toy Blast for anything near $100 million. And with good reason, since (as Zynga itself pointed out) they went on to become some of the consistently highest-grossing games in all of the App Store.

n

In the intervening period, Zynga tried to create its own rivals, namely Wonka’s World of Candy, but it’s never been as big of a hit as the others. (Apptopia’s Adam Blacker today told me, after I published this piece, that in fact Wonka’s World has made but a tiny fraction of the revenue of Peak’s titles.)

n

Hence, two years on, Zynga possibly finally found the “right price”u00a0for the whole of Peak Games.

n

u201cWe are honored to welcome Sidar and team to Zynga. Peak is one of the worldu2019s best puzzle game makers and we could not be more excited to add such creative and passionate talent to our company,u201d said Frank Gibeau, Chief Executive Officer of Zynga, in a statement. u201cWith the addition of Toon Blast and Toy Blast, we are expanding our live services portfolio to eight forever franchises, meaningfully increasing our global audience base and adding to our exciting new game pipeline. As a combined team, we are well positioned to grow faster together.u201d

n

u201cThis is a monumental partnership not only for Zynga and Peak, but for the whole mobile gaming industry,u201d said Sidar Sahin, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Peak, in a statement. u201cBoth companies share a common vision — to bring people together through games. Peaku2019s culture is rooted in relentless learning and progress, so as we embark on this new chapter in our journey together with Zynga, we remain as committed as ever to our unique culture. Weu2019re very excited for our combined future and what we will accomplish together.u201d

n

Zynga and games business strategies aside, this is also a huge deal for Turkey’s tech ecosystem.

n

Turkey has been a steady presence straddling both the European and MENA markets (much as Turkey’s wider economy and political presence does), but so far with little impact in terms of exits and activity that extend outside of the region.

n

This acquisition is a testament to the exciting companies and talent that are being developed in the market, and is of course yet another sign of how big tech companies based out of more established centres like the Bay Area will continue to take bigger leaps to tap talent ever further afield, in their ongoing consolidation push and search for both business and audience growth.

n

One impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been that many are starting to see a much faster decentralisation in the world of technology. People are working remotely, and some are even planning to move away from tech hubs; and deals are getting done not in person but over videoconferencing links. This acquisition also demonstrates how that is also playing out in the world of M&A, too.

COVID-19 quickly put the stock market in the ICU, with signs of unprecedented volatility and declines. However, the market’s resilience and swift action by the Fed made this downward spiral short-lived. The Russell 2000 Index, a benchmark for small-cap stocks, is one of several indices that highlights this.

Within a one-month period from late February into March, The Russell 2000 Index was down more than 40%, signaling the end of a long bull market and entrance into bear territory.

As tech companies gostar Twitter e Facebook gear up for longer-term remote work solutions, the future of work is becoming one of the more exciting opportunities in venture capital, CRV general partner Saar Gur told TechCrunch.

n

And as loneliness mounts with shelter-in-place orders implemented in various forms across the world, investors are looking for products and services that foster true connection among a distributed workforce, as well as a distributed society.

n

But the future of work doesn’t just entail spinning up home offices. It also involves gig workers, freelancers, hiring tools, tools for workplace organizing and automation. The last couple of years have particularly brought tech organizing to the forefront. Whether it was the Google walkout in 2018 or gig workers’ ongoing actions against companies like Uber, Lyft and Instacart for better pay and protections, there are many opportunities to help workers better organize and achieve their goals.

n

Below, we’ve gathered insights from:

Saar Gur, CRV

What are you most excited about in the future of work?

n

Future of work is one of the most exciting opportunities in venture.u00a0u00a0

n

Pre-COVID, few tech companies were fully remote. While it seems obvious in retrospect, the building blocks for fully remote technology companies now exist (e.g. high-speed internet, SaaS and the cloud, reliable video streaming, real-time documents, etc.). And while SIP may be temporary, we feel the TAM of fully remote companies will grow significantly and produce a number of exciting investment opportunities.

n

I donu2019t think we have fully grokked what it means to run a company digitally. Today, most processes like interviewing, meetings and performance/activity tracking still live in the world of atoms versus bits. As an example, imagine every meeting is recorded, transcribed and searchable — how would that transform how we work?u00a0u00a0u00a0

n

There is an opportunity to re-imagine how we work. And we are excited about products that solve meaningful problems in the areas of productivity, brainstorming, communication tools, workflows and more. We also see a lot of potential in infrastructure required to facilitate remote and global teams.

n

We are also excited by companies that are enabling new types of work. Companies like Etsy (founded 2005), Shopify (2004), TaskTabbit (2008), Uber (2009), DoorDash (2013) and Patreon (2013) have helped create a new workforce of entrepreneurs. But many of these companies are over a decade old and we fully expect a new wave of companies that give more power to the individual.

Hello and welcome back to our regular morning look at private companies, public markets and the gray space in between.

n

This week will see two richly valued SaaS businesses share their Q1 earnings reports: CrowdStrike e Ampliação. Both are 2019 IPOs, but these relatively young public companies have enjoyed a strong run in the public markets this year.

n

Ampliação started off 2020 worth around $69 per share; today it is worth $179.48 ahead of the start of today’s trading. CrowdStrike started the year at a little over $49 per share; today it’s worth $87.81 per share. The business-focused, but consumer-friendly video chat service Zoom and the cybersecurity-focused CrowdStrike are perfect examples of the updraft that SaaS businesses have ridden this year.

n

With both firms reporting earnings at the same time, we’ll get notes on the work-from-home trend, and how it is impacting services that help make remote-work possible. CrowdStrike’s earnings will inform us on how the cybersecurity space is performing — are businesses shelling out more than expected to keep their networks and employees safe when so many are out of the office?

n

E se Ampliação and CrowdStrike report results that disappoint investors, they could do more than just deflate their own shares. Missed earnings reports from either could puncture SaaS valuations more broadly, perhaps impacting private valuations for companies that are in the market for new capital. Por quê?

n

Prominence and timing.

at B2B European VC henQ discuss remote work’s biggest advantages"},"content":{"rendered":"

HenQ, an Amsterdam-based VC that invests in European B2B software startups typically at seed and Series A, recently disclosed the first close of its fourth fund at u20ac70 million. The final close is expected to top out at between u20ac75-u20ac85 million later this year, and the firm has already begun backing companies out of the new fund.

n

However, what sets henQ apart from many VC firms isn’t just its pure focus on B2B software but that its team is fully remote. Primarily investing in the Nordics and Benelux, henQ doesn’t have any official offices, with the team working from different temporary locations. Even before the coronavirus pandemic, henQ closed deals remotely.

n

Successes from its previous funds include Mendix (acquired by Siemens) and SEOshop (acquired by Lightspeed).

n

I spoke to partners Jan Andriessen, Mick Mackaay and Jelmer de Jong to learn more about henQ, what it’s like to be a fully remote VC and how the firm envisions the post-pandemic era.

n

TechCrunch: Can you be more specific regarding the size of check you write and the types of companies, geographies, technologies and business models you are focusing on?

n

Jan Andriessen: Our main focus is seed rounds, in which we often are the lead investor. We also invest in Series A rounds, often as a co-investor. Initial check sizes vary from u20ac500,000 to u20ac3.5 million.

n

A typical seed investment has a product and perhaps a few pilot customers. The key here is not revenue (which is OK to be zero), but there is proof of the actual need for the product.

n

Most of our recent deals were in the Nordics and Benelux, the areas where we spent the majority of our time. But we have also invested in the Baltics, Czech Republic and the UK. For henQ 4, we expect this to be the same: the bulk of our investments will be in the Nordics and Benelux, with an occasional deal in broader Europe.

n

In terms of technology and business trends, one of the things we firmly believe in is the consumerization of enterprise software: successful startups are centered around their customers and focus on the job to be done. More generally, we have always been focused on startups with staying power: companies that have a right to exist over time, not just now, as they deliver a product that touches the core processes of their customers and operate at the heart of their customeru2019s business.

n

For example, looking at our portfolio, Zivver delivers secure communication solutions for hospitals and governments. Stravito works deep in the research departments of FMCGs, delivering a knowledge management platform. Mews runs the full operations of hotels with their property management system, and Orderchamp enables retailers to digitize their buying process.

n

We see the business model of a company as a means, not an end. Most of the startups we invest in charge a SaaS plus implementation fee, and have a more enterprise-sales driven business model. We are not afraid to invest in startups that have a more complex and longer sales cycle, and are not per se looking for SaaS ‘by-the-book.'

In business, there’s nothing so valuable as having the right product at the right time. Just ask Zoom, the hot cloud-based video conferencing platform experiencing explosive growth thanks to its sudden relevance in the age of sheltering in place.

n

Having worked at BlackBerry in its heyday in the early 2000s, I see a lot of parallels to what Ampliação is going through right now. As Zooming into a video meeting or a classroom is today, so too was pulling out your BlackBerry to fire off an email or check your stocks circa 2002. Like Zoom, the company then known as Research in Motion had the right product for enterprise users that increasingly wanted to do business on the go.

n

Of course, BlackBerry’s story didn’t have a happy ending.

n

From 1999 to 2007, BlackBerry seemed totally unstoppable. But then Steve Jobs announced the iPhone, Google launched Android and all of the chinks in the BlackBerry armor started coming undone, one by one. How can Zoom avoid the same fate?

n

As someone who was at both BlackBerry and Android during their heydays, my biggest takeaway is that product experience trumps everything else. It’s more important than security (an issue Zoom is getting blasted about right now), what CIOs want, your user install base and the larger brand identity.

n

When the iPhone was released, many people within BlackBerry rightly pointed out that we had a technical leg up on Apple in many areas important to business and enterprise users (not to mention the physical keyboard for quickly cranking out emails)… but how much did that advantage matter in the end? If there is serious market pull, the rest eventually gets figured outu2026 a lesson I learned from my time at BlackBerry that I was lucky enough to be able to immediately apply when I joined Google to work on Android.
