Why 97% of electronics startups fail, and how will change this situation

Despite grabbing $930M in funding during its 10-year lifespan, Jawbone failed to hold on to significant market share for its line of headsets, fitness trackers, and wireless speakers.

Jawbone became the second-costliest VC-backed startup failure of all time.

Even acquisition of BodyMedia, a maker of health-monitoring armbands, which won them the company’s 80 patents (many for multi-sensor technology), don't help


As rumors swirled that Apple, Google, and Samsung were developing wearables of their own, the company beefed up by appointing Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer to the board in April 2013 and naming Mindy Mount, a top VP at Microsoft, as president in May 2013.

FitBit nearly acquired Jawbone in 2016, likely for the 2,800 patents Rahman says he still has in his arsenal. The patents are likely another reason Rahman intends to launch his “Jawbone Health Hub”

Xiaomi is outperform Samsung in India this year and recently became the world’s leading seller of wearable fitness trackers. Despite their dropping popularity in the US, new research from Canalys found that the global wearables market grew 8% YoY in Q2’17 – led by Xiaomi with 3.5 million units shipped, closely followed by Fitbit with 3.3 million units shipped (a 34% decline compared to the same quarter a year earlier).

How can help XIAOMI and Fitbit not to repeat Jawbone's fate?

Top threats 2016.

What are the threats to the fall of the Chinese stock market to the global economy and for Russia? I think that the most difficult times ahead. The Chinese economy has been the main engine of the global economy. China bust the consumption of oil, energy, gas and industrial metals, which in the rest of the world declined. This artificial governamental input has repeatedly created speculative investment in the capital markets for the past 36 years leading to boom & bust economy and markets (see chart).
This 36-year global credit boom and resulting slowing economic growth lead to an investors' 'crisis of confidence' in government debt and public sector solvency. I am afraid that China is not able to solve that. 9 months until the collapse of the Chinese market that will be trigger to global Great Crisis. As oil prices forecast: 40 dollars per barrel. This level of support at the lower boundary of the range of the bear. Falling oil to 40 and then to 35 and even up to $ 30 a barrel to happen precisely because of China.


Investment Focus 2015 - 2020.

Calculation on the most effective investment risk-based strategy:
1. War of the sanctions, which could fully disengage the Russian financial system from the global system, which will be black swan for the world system
2. The exponential growth of cyber attacks on financial services, and terrorist special operations, reducing investment flows of entire regions and industries
3. Forced restructuring of the global economy, the transfer of production, reduce costs and staff - leading to unbalance the budgets of countries
4. youth unemployment, and the growth of e-learning, which will lead to the closure of most colleges after 5 years
5. Transition to the new technological order, which will lead to a further reduction in employment and income budgets of countries 6. Demographic and social imbalances that lead to a concentration of 90% of the wealth in 10% of the world's population, and the debt problems in the majority of the population, companies and countries
7. panic on the stock exchanges and currency markets, inevitable in the future 5 years, due to the Chinese threat and all of the above
- All it can in the long run to make the market not only the majority of existing companies, but even such giants as Google, which begin to lose their main income (advertising)
1. Create a p2p-platforms for different industries (p2p - model of equal sharing of resources when the devices connected to the network can act as both client and server): payment systems and software solutions for the replacement of the financial sector, which will fall on the horizon 3 - 5 years. Replace the financial sector in terms of payments - telecom operators could.
That is Telecoms who acquire these P2P platform on the day after the implementation of one - two of these risks.
2. But it is no substitute for other financial products. Rating mechanism could be implement for a complete transformation of the telecom operators in the banks.
3. Contest mechanism - used in tenders and auctions - must be implement everywhere in agent based systems. Competition - replace the engagement of consultants: smart people from around the world who attack the problem and its prize money and are able to create algorithms for global competitive level, which as a result of bypass that offer consultants.
