Retweeted by Fred DestinFrance has some fabulous assets including world class colleges that too few people know about. Something to build on's Least Surprising Research (from @HarvardBiz): angel investors focus on people more than traction - I thought that laws that supersede common sense was the speciality of the European Commission but I guess it's a global phenom :)twittr
Retweeted by Fred Destin+1. Freedom acquires meaning when you curtail it for something you give a shit about. It needs to be exercised. ha! Nice one :-)Had not realized until tonight that @realDonaldTrump was *actually* the GOP frontrunner. Somebody hand me a gun (to shoot myself).

@SpotifyCares no I get that :-). Just saying messaging is very confusing especially if people are in different locations@SpotifyCares tx - confusion is in "Play Here" means to me and my little girl "play on current device" (the one you are holding in hand)Wtf
Retweeted by Fred DestinAs in : do artists participate in the upside when music labels' corp parents take warrants in Spotify ? Hum ... article - speed in decision making as the ultimate competitive weapon when interacting with remote phones instructions on "play here" vs "continue" are highly confusing to the user"The moment we deny a difficult experience, it owns us" - @BreneBrown - some quotes are worth sharing.@JTD1977 @brokenbottleboy we are working on adding breakfast and brunch on @Deliveroo - non-trivialI love both the writer and app. Very funny.

Retweeted by Fred DestinTalking to @maxtaves about @deliveroo and why food will be the #1 #eCommerce category : that @foundrygroup keeps funds tight at $225M and raises every 2-3 years (10, 12, 15).
