To Survive The Pandemic, Entrepreneurs Might Try Learning From Nature

The field of biomimicry says that businesses can take away crucial lessons by studying how organisms adapt to devastation. To Survive The Pandemic, Entrepreneurs Might Try Learning From Nature

Where can small businesses turn for strategic help during a global pandemic and an economic crisis?

Wildfires, pine cones and armadillos might hold some answers.

Those suggestions come from an interdisciplinary field of study called biomimicry—the idea that we can learn practical lessons by observing and copying processes and strategies found in nature.

The concept—popularized by author Janine Benyus—is well known as it applies to new products, such as adhesives inspired by the sticky feet of the gecko and underwater cameras suggested by the eyes of mantis shrimp.

But the natural world offers so much more than simply ideas for product design. In our research, we explore how nature can offer insight into topics such as keeping up with quickly changing markets, cooperating with peers and fostering resilience—all of which are relevant to organizations, especially to entrepreneurial organizations.

These lessons may be particularly useful during our current crisis. Many of the roughly eight million species on Earth have weathered times of intense disruption, and the strategies they’ve developed to adapt to harsh conditions—and thrive—have been proven effective over countless years.

Here’s a look at five ways organisms respond to periods of extreme adversity and what insights they hold for small businesses.

Strategy 1: Find New Opportunities To Grow

Organisms often respond to upheaval by leveraging opportunities for growth. Take wildfires: As they burn forests to the ground, they can create new habitats like grasslands, where different species flourish. Likewise, when a tornado uproots trees, it allows sunlight to reach the forest floor. Seeds that couldn’t grow before will sprout and thrive in this new habitat.

The business ecosystem is also changing significantly. That means big adjustments for companies, but also opportunities for growth—if companies are willing to move outside their usual niches and think more broadly. In the Great Recession of 2008, restaurants adapted by offering smaller, lower-cost meals, while higher-end retailers emphasized discount options. In the current crisis, some restaurants are emphasizing delivery, food manufacturers are focusing on core products that are most in demand, and therapists are offering online sessions.

Alternatively, small businesses might grow by using existing infrastructure in new ways. For example, a growing list of distilleries are producing hand sanitizer instead of spirits to fill drastic consumer needs.

Strategy 2: Shut Down And Strengthen

Even when some organisms appear to be devastated by a natural disruption, they have systems in place that let them thrive again. Trees such as the shortleaf pine do not have thick bark that can withstand a wildfire and are commonly burned to the ground. Yet their strong roots below the ground quickly rebuild after the fire has passed.

Similarly, entrepreneurs need to remember that they have a strong root system that they have built over the years, even if they don’t realize it. As individuals, they have knowledge and skills, and their companies have a solid base of trained employees and regular customers.

Businesses with money to spare in this crisis should consider investments to preserve those core strengths as much as possible and make it easier for the company to spring back to life once the crisis has passed. That might mean investing in employee training to boost morale and efficiency, or doing volunteer work in their communities to build loyalty. Many larger companies make these kinds of efforts to strengthen their roots, such as offering paid sabbaticals for employees to let them recharge, spur creativity and eventually boost productivity.

It is also important for entrepreneurs to keep their roots in mind if they’re forced to close permanently. They aren’t going to forget what they know because their business closed—they may even end up wiser and more prepared to launch another company. And they won’t lose valuable contacts with skilled workers and the public. There are countless examples of entrepreneurs trying again after launching failed companies, including after economic collapses like the dot-com bubble.

Strategy 3: Take Advantage of Predators

For some organisms, catastrophe is an opportunity to hunt. Tropical birds search for insects fleeing from army-ant swarms, and animals such as bears and raccoons often prey on smaller animals escaping a wildfire.

In the business world, hunting means looking for acquisitions, and small businesses fit the definition of “prey”—not as old, not as experienced and, of course, not as big as a potential acquirer.

Why Not Take Advantage Of That?

During the last economic downturn, big companies took the opportunity to snap up small firms that fit their needs, and they may very well start doing so again. Small businesses that are struggling might consider an exit strategy and position themselves as attractive takeover targets. This involves getting your records in order and figuring out what high-value attributes you can use as selling points, such as a prime location, well-established brand name or market position in a growing industry.

Cashing out and handing your company to somebody else can be a bitter experience. But the reality is that not every business will survive the crisis, and allowing your business to be snagged by a “predator” might be a best-case scenario.

Strategy 4: Look For Leftovers

Crises offer the opportunity a chance to do a form of bargain hunting—scavenging. Various species of beetles fly in large numbers to recently burned trees to take advantage of food, shelter and reproductive sites in the dead tissue. Later on, larger animals such as armadillos will return in search of these very insects for food.

Small-business owners may have similar opportunities right now, such as tapping into skilled workers who have suddenly become unemployed, negotiating more generous terms to get into an ideal space or looking for better prices with suppliers.

Throughout the decades, many small companies have leapt on these kinds of opportunities. When major airlines experienced an economic downturn in 2001, smaller airlines leveraged the opportunity to purchase aircraft at a discount. Likewise, after the dot-com bubble burst, surviving startups grabbed tech employees who had been laid off.

Strategy 5: Launch Something New

Disruption can sometimes be the ideal time for organisms not just to regenerate or seek sustenance—but to reproduce. Lodgepole pine trees have developed hard cones that are glued shut, and to release their seeds, the cones must be exposed to high temperature from a fire. Thus, the timing of tree reproduction is actually dependent on a catastrophic event.

What lesson does that hold for businesses? For individuals or companies nurturing an entrepreneurial idea, a crisis could be the spark they need to take a chance they wouldn’t have taken when jobs or customers were plentiful. In the Great Depression, many small groceries opened in homes or abandoned storefronts, as there were very few jobs available. Individuals were able to start their business by buying a small stock of perishable goods, and lived off the unsold inventory if needed. More recently, Kickstarter and other crowdfunding platforms emerged during the 2008 recession, in response to the difficulty small businesses had in accessing traditional financing.

Tech Entrepreneurs Form Coalition To Take On Sourcing Coronavirus Supplies

Initiative is part of a broader private-sector response to pandemic to help with masks, gowns and other equipment in short supply.

A pair of tech entrepreneurs has started a coalition including companies and nonprofits to help address a shortage of medical supplies for health-care workers fighting the coronavirus pandemic, an effort that has grown to include companies from Volkswagen AG to health-care distributor Cardinal Health Inc.

The group, calling itself the C19 Coalition, says it has raised $30 million in interest-free loans from wealthy families and foundations to help hospitals buy supplies and has delivered 100 million pieces of protective gear across the U.S. The group says its efforts amount to a small step toward addressing shortages in the U.S. health-care system of critical equipment including masks, swabs and gowns.

The coalition is one of a number of such private-sector initiatives that have sprung up to fight the pandemic, which has millions of Americans sheltering in their homes and has spread economic devastation across the country. The disease has overloaded hospitals in several hot spots around the nation, and caused shortages of critical equipment for those on the front lines.

As part of a national response to the crisis, the U.S. government has said it welcomes the support of the private sector. Jared Kushner, a White House senior adviser, has overseen much of the effort, including working closely with the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

C19 Coalition has offered to work in concert with the government, noting federal agencies have a better view into where supplies are needed most, but since the group launched in March it has begun distributing medical equipment on its own.

Driving the initiative are Eric Ries, CEO of the San Francisco-based Long-Term Stock Exchange, and Joe Wilson, a partner at MarsBio, a Los Angeles venture-capital firm that invests in biotechnology startups.

The coalition includes Schmidt Futures, former Google chief executive Eric Schmidt’s philanthropic group. The group has donated $200,000 to fund salaries for about a dozen people involved in the project, said people familiar with the matter. A spokeswoman for Mr. Schmidt said his group has also been involved in other Covid-19 response efforts.

Among the coalition’s members, Volkswagen is helping produce face masks and isolation gowns, a company spokesperson said, and is now producing more than 1 million masks per week. Some of those supplies have been donated to New York hospitals, the spokesperson said. HP Inc., meanwhile, is producing medical supplies with 3D printing, and has donated the supplies to hospitals throughout the U.S., a company spokesperson said. Nonprofit Helena created a software system providing real-time data of where supplies are needed, Helena executives said.

The $30 million financing program is intended “to temporarily cover costs that come with purchasing [personal protective equipment] in bulk at a discounted price,” said tech entrepreneur Peter Pham, one of the coalition’s leaders. He said the program would pass on savings to states, hospitals, retirement homes, community clinics, homeless shelters and hospices.

Technology entrepreneurs have tackled the coronavirus in other ways. Salesforce.com Inc. Chief Executive Marc Benioff is involved in an effort that has spent more than $25 million to acquire supplies from China, a Salesforce spokeswoman said. Apple Inc. Chief Executive Tim Cook has donated supplies to hospitals. Twitter Inc. Chief Executive Jack Dorsey pledged $1 billion in Covid-19 relief efforts.

Mr. Ries said the group was conceived as an umbrella organization for federal as well as state governments, supplanting the many individual groups looking to help. The group said it has engaged with state governments including New Jersey in order to assess needs. Representatives for New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy didn’t comment.

Companies involved in responding to Covid-19 would prefer the government tell them where to direct supplies, Mr. Ries said.

“If you’re a private company, you don’t want to make that decision,” he said. “They don’t want the liability.”

Messrs. Ries and Wilson are both California-based, but they live hundreds of miles apart and haven’t met in person. They first connected last month in a WhatsApp chat group of concerned tech workers looking to help the pandemic response.

“I’ve probably spent hundreds of hours talking to Eric at this point,” Mr. Wilson said.

Husband-Wife Team Worth $12 Billion After Latest Canva Funding Round

Melanie Perkins’s and Cliff Obrecht’s Australian startup Canva is valued at $40 billion.

It all began with millennial angst at user-unfriendly software.

While teaching design programs part-time in 2008 when she was at university in Perth, Australia, Melanie Perkins grew frustrated with the clunky desktop-based tools she was helping her students understand.

“Facebook was taking off at the time — people could jump in and use that so easily and yet design tools took years of training to learn,” Perkins recalled in a Medium post in 2018. “I wanted to make design software simple, online and collaborative.”

It was a winning formula. A funding round last week valued their graphic design company, Canva, at $40 billion. That gave Perkins, 34, and her husband and co-founder Cliff Obrecht, 35, a fortune of $5.9 billion each, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

The latest funding round makes the Sydney-based firm the fifth-largest startup in the world, according to data from research firm CB Insights, and Perkins the richest self-made female billionaire under the age of 40. Among Canva’s investors are Franklin Templeton and Sequoia Capital Global Equities.

‘Right Direction’

Perkins and Obrecht, who married earlier this year, said in an interview this week that they aren’t slowing down. “We want to build one of the world’s most valuable companies,” said Perkins, who is chief executive officer. “We’re moving in the right direction, but we’re not there yet.’’

Canva users have created more than 7 billion designs, but Perkins wants it to become ubiquitous. That includes ultimately replacing PDF resumes with responsive web-based tools.

She and Obrecht own at least 30% of the company, Perkins disclosed in a Medium post that accompanied news of the company’s valuation. A former Google employee, Cameron Adams, is also a co-founder, though the size of his stake hasn’t been disclosed.

A Canva spokesperson, Lachlan Andrews, declined to comment.

Canva is popular with bloggers, students and marketers who can select templates and then customize them to make logos, resumes, flyers or even T-shirt designs.

Its tools are used by more than 10 million students and teachers, as well as companies including American Airlines Group Inc., Zoom Video Communications Inc., SkyScanner, Intel Corp., Salesforce.com Inc., PayPal Holdings Inc. and Marriott International Inc., according to Perkins. Canva says that it’s on track to surpass $1 billion in annualized revenue by year-end.

Tech Billionaires

The pair’s new fortune makes them the 9th- and 10th-richest people in Australia, according to the Bloomberg index. While the country’s fortunes have long been linked to commodities industries, Perkins and Obrecht join a group that’s topped by fellow tech founders Mike Cannon-Brookes and Scott Farquhar of Atlassian, a software-development company.

Perkins also becomes Australia’s second-richest woman after Gina Rinehart, 67, who has a net worth of $17.9 billion derived largely from an iron-ore business.

In her latest Medium post, Perkins vowed that she and Obrecht would donate the vast majority of their Canva equity. The couple plans to direct its giving through the Canva Foundation, and announced a program with nonprofit GiveDirectly that will distribute $10 million to the poor in Southern Africa.

“It has felt strange when people refer to us as billionaires as it has never felt like our money,” Perkins said in a statement. “We’ve always felt that we’re purely custodians of it. It’s long been our intention to give the wealth away.”

How I Quit And Started a Company: Steve Silberberg, Fitpacking

The owner of an outdoor guiding service traded his computer programming gig to lead excursions 13 weeks a year.

Steve Silberberg is living the backpacker’s dream. He gets paid to take hikers of all fitness levels on one- to two-week trips in some of the most stunning landscapes of the U.S. national parks through his Hull, Massachusetts-based business, Fitpacking. Silberberg, 60, credits his 16-year-old company’s survival to rookie confidence. “I thought, ‘Oh yeah, for sure this is going to be a success. Who wouldn’t want to go backpacking all week?’” Here’s how he made the leap:

Old Job: Programmer. “I was writing code at an investment firm for 17 years. There was a time when I loved programming, but as with most things, it got hard to remain passionate about it.”

‘Ah-ha’ Moment: “I’d just turned 40, and didn’t see myself sitting in a cubicle for the rest of my life. I wondered if there was a way to get out into the wilderness and pursue my true passion. Whenever I backpacked, I’d come back and my clothes fit better and I felt better.”

Transition Time: Three years dreaming, one year transitioning. “My company was very kind to me, and allowed me to work for nine months finishing up projects on a part-time basis until I went full-time into my venture.”

Financial Trajectory: “It took two to three years before any reasonable amount of funds started coming in.” In the meantime, he took coding jobs in the winter during the off season for hiking in the U.S. “The business didn’t stop just because I had a 9-to-5, so it was like working two jobs.”

Staffing Up: Silberberg took a slow and steady approach to hiring. “It took a few years to get people to participate in a new venture. But the third year I started hiring part-time guides.” He now has 10 guides, plus his “right hand” coworker in Orlando who runs the company during the trips Silberberg is on, as well as part-timers who handle logistics like hotel booking and park permitting.

The Challenge: Wearing all the hats. Silberberg easily launched a website and built databases. “Then came the tricky stuff like marketing and dealing with customers and accounting. While none were completely foreign to me, I noticed that I did not have quite the same acumen.”

New Job vs. Old Job: “I used to sit at a desk in front of a computer all day, and now I sit at a desk in front of a computer all day,” he says with a laugh. “But I just got back from two weeks guiding in Yellowstone, and next month I’ll wake up in the bottom of Grand Canyon.” He guides 13 weeks a year, and is pivoting toward wilderness experiences that might be lost with global warming.

Pro Tip: “Make sure that your heart’s in your company, and that you really like to do it.”

Designers Try Selling Clothes First, Making Them Later

Rebecca Minkoff and other labels test on-demand production, hoping to avoid piles of unsold apparel; ‘That’s what really kills brands’

Some items on fashion designer Rebecca Minkoff’s website, including a $158 Gigi top and $248 Darcy dress, don’t exist.

They are part of a new way of making clothes that attempts to solve a problem bedeviling the fashion industry: Most brands produce too many goods, which leads to heavy discounting to clear unsold items. In addition to hurting the bottom line, the overproduction adds waste as unwanted merchandise ends up in landfills.

Ms. Minkoff doesn’t produce a single item in her eponymous brand’s “sustainably made” collection until a customer orders it, according to chief executive and co-founder Uri Minkoff. The designer, along with about 25 others, is using a system created by Resonance Companies Inc., one of a handful of on-demand manufacturers and technology providers trying to rethink traditional garment production.

The Covid-19 pandemic highlighted the shortcomings of the established model, which requires brands to place large orders with overseas factories as much as a year in advance. Retailers were stuck with piles of unsold clothes last year, when stores shut temporarily as consumers sheltered at home—pushing some chains into bankruptcy.

“The industry has to change,” said Lawrence Lenihan, the chairman and co-founder of Resonance, which has raised $45 million since its 2015 launch. “Brands can’t be stuck making decisions 12 months in advance.”

Resonance prints fabric digitally at its factory in the Dominican Republic. The fabric is then cut robotically into pattern pieces, which are sewn by humans at the Dominican site, at a sewing facility Resonance opened in New York City in September or at another New York plant owned by a third party. Those facilities then ship completed garments to customers in packaging specific to each brand.

Every item is stamped with a QR code that shows how much fabric, dye, water and other materials were used in production, the amount of power consumed as well as who made it and where. Shoppers receive their items one to two weeks after placing orders, although shortages of raw materials have caused some delays recently, Mr. Lenihan said.

‘When you eliminate the 999 dresses that you would have had to make to sell one, that is where the profitability comes in.’
— Lawrence Lenihan, co-founder of Resonance Companies

Retailers from Gap Inc. to Kohl’s Corp. have been racing in recent years to shorten lead times to better match supply with demand. But even fast-fashion chains like H&M Hennes & Mauritz AB have at times wound up sitting on piles of unsold goods that dented profits and highlighted the environmental impact of throwaway clothes—so named because many consumers deem them cheap enough to wear only once.

Amazon.com Inc. has held a patent for on-demand apparel manufacturing since 2017. While brands from New Balance to Calvin Klein have used the method to customize sneakers and underwear, only a small portion of apparel and footwear is currently made this way, industry executives said. Peerless Clothing International said it plans to use the method for its Hart Schaffner Marx menswear brand starting in October.

Large brands would have to fundamentally change how they design to produce items one at a time, and the standards necessary for making products at scale this way don’t yet exist, some of the executives said. Unlike automobile production, which is mostly automated, apparel manufacturing still requires humans to sew clothes, adding a layer of cost and slowing the process, they said.

Mr. Lenihan said that Resonance’s system is scalable and that the company is looking to automate more of the manufacturing steps.

‘We aren’t mired by all this inventory that would put us out of business if we didn’t sell it.’
— Fashion designer Robert Tagliapietra, about on-demand production

Designers Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra were a hit when they launched their Costello Tagliapietra brand in 2005. Vogue nicknamed them the “lumberjacks of fashion” for their penchant for wearing plaid shirts, and their jersey dresses were sold in upscale stores like Barneys New York.

“We did all the right things, but we were always treading water,” Mr. Tagliapietra said. They closed Costello Tagliapietra in 2015 and a year later launched JCRT, which sells shirts, trousers, coats and other clothes. Resonance owns 50% of the brand, as well as stakes in other brands that use its system, including Kit and Tucker.

“We aren’t mired by all this inventory that would put us out of business if we didn’t sell it,” Mr. Tagliapietra said. “That’s what really kills brands.”

JCRT is on track to have about $2 million in revenue this year, less than the $8 million Costello Tagliapietra had at its peak. But JCRT is more profitable, the designers said. It has only two employees, Messrs. Costello and Tagliapietra, compared with 15 at their earlier company. Plus, markdowns don’t eat into margins.

“We never go on sale, because we never have excess inventory to clear out,” Mr. Tagliapietra said.

Another benefit of the on-demand model is that it gives brands the option of making some goods domestically, essentially eliminating the time-consuming and expensive effort of shipping goods from overseas factories. That is more appealing now, with skyrocketing shipping costs and backlogged ports.

Ziel Inc. PBC, an on-demand manufacturer of activewear, has a facility in Newburgh, N.Y., that makes items for Everlast Worldwide Inc., Dia & Co and other brands. Gooten, another on-demand player, makes 70% of its orders in the U.S. at 23 factories, from New Jersey to Oregon.

The cost of manufacturing domestically can run multiples of the cost of Asian production. But brands save on shipping and warehousing, while earning more on each sale, because they don’t have to slash prices to clear excess inventory, some of the executives said. As a result, the prices the brands charge consumers are similar to those of goods made the typical way, the executives said.

“By producing on-demand, we are getting equal if not greater margins because we don’t have to discount,” Mr. Minkoff said.

On-demand production doesn’t require minimum-order guarantees, a standard practice at large factories overseas. Even for big brands that can afford the minimums, the system is imperfect because it produces a set number of sizes for every batch. That leaves brands with too many sizes they can’t sell—for instance, too many extra-smalls or extra-larges and not enough mediums, according to industry executives.

“When you eliminate the 999 dresses that you would have had to make to sell one, that is where the profitability comes in,” Mr. Lenihan said.

Hoping To Use Your IRA To Start Your Own Business? Think Again, Says New Bill

If you were thinking of starting a business with money from your individual retirement account, you might want to put that idea on hold for a moment.

Ditto if you were thinking of using tax-deferred retirement accounts to invest in a startup run by a friend or a member of your family.

The new tax bill on Capitol Hill is planning to ban those moves. Worse still, it will effectively act retroactively — so if you’ve made such investments before it becomes law, you’ll have two years either to sell them, or remove them from your IRA.

Selling could involve a loss. Getting them out of your IRA will hit you with taxes.

The bill is currently being considered by the Senate. It is expected to become law, in some form, within weeks.

Under the current proposals, no one will be allowed to invest their IRA money in any company where they are an officer, or own 10% or more of the stock—which would make it very hard indeed to invest in your own business, or one being started by a friend or family member.

(The new law will also bar so-called “accredited investors” from using IRA money for investments in private placements and higher risk ventures. So you won’t be able to tap third party “angel” investors through private placements either.)

These investments have previously been possible so long as you ran a so-called “Self-Directed IRA,” which allows you to invest your retirement savings in assets other than stocks, bonds and mutual funds.

The new proposals come after revelations earlier this summer that PayPal billionaire Peter Thiel was able to accumulate a $5 billion IRA over almost 25 years through some controversial tax maneuvers and a big slice of luck.

Steve Rosenthal, tax expert at the liberal Urban Institute and one of the leading proponents of the change, explains the rationale for the new proposals. “Too many tax expenditures [i.e. tax breaks] go to the richest, whitest households, [and] reward those who don’t need rewarding,” he says.

But the law doesn’t just crack down on the super rich, says Adam Bergman, CEO of self-directed IRA provider IRA Financial.

“I just spoke to someone earlier today,” he tells me. “He lives in Connecticut, he has a good job, he has $100,000-something in his IRA and he was going to make it into a small business that his friend is the CEO of in California, with 45 employees, and he calls me up and he says Adam, I’ve read this bill. Should I do it? Because if I make this investment today, and this bill passes, now I have two years to get rid of this investment.”

Bergman notes that mega-IRAs are already being limited through a separate clause of the same tax bill, which would cap tax-deferred retirement accounts at $10 million. (Very few people in America have IRA balances over $25 million. Meanwhile, Bergman says, “Ninety-nine percent of our clients have less than $1 million.” The average balance, he says, is $125,000.)

Tax expert Marcia Wagner of the Wagner Law Group in Boston finds the proposals surprising. “It is not entirely clear why this particular provision was included in the House Ways and Means Committee markup,” she says.

“There are a number of provisions that are directed at very wealthy individuals with very significant amounts in their IRAs, but this proposal will affect a different category of individuals — perhaps upper-middle class.” She adds: “The category of individuals who qualify as accredited investors is not an uber-rich category.”

(Legally an “accredited investor” must make $200,000 a year as an individual or $300,000 as a couple, or have $1 million in assets, or qualify as a financial expert.)

It’s too soon to know whether these provisions will end up as law.

On the other hand, for ordinary Joes and Joannas hoping to start their own businesses there may be a silver lining to these provisions as they currently stand.

If you use your IRA to finance your business, and the business fails, you’ll lose the money.

But if you use credit cards or bank debt to finance your business instead, if the business fails your IRA money is safe. That’s because IRAs and 401(k)s are sheltered from creditors, even in bankruptcy, under federal law.

How I Quit My Job and Started a Company: Lisa Lane, Rinseroo

Seven takeaways from an entrepreneur seeking a better way to hose off the dog.

When Lisa Lane introduced a portable slip-on faucet extender in 2019 called the Rinseroo—it fits sink or tub faucets and helps with tasks like hosing down your dog—she expected a gradual climb to profitability on the sluggish trajectory shared by most small businesses.

Six months later the 56-year-old veteran of medical marketing positions was turning a profit from her New Jersey home.

Sounds like a quick success—but getting it right isn’t easy, so here are a few useful lessons Lane picked up along the way.

Her Aha! Moment: “I was at a beach house with 15 of my extended family members and four dogs, constantly rinsing sand off people and cleaning dogs and filling this bucket over and over. I thought that there must be a better way and that it would be useful to anyone with a shower. So, mass-market potential.”

Transition Time: Getting everything right took two years. “I didn’t jump ship until I had a product in hand and was ready to launch,” Lane says. She logged long evenings and weekends researching how to craft effective Amazon listings and develop the product. “I learned everything I really needed to know from The Mom Inventor’s Handbook,” she says.

Financial Trajectory: “Thankfully, my husband was also working, and my product was not very intricate, so I was able to fund it all with my own hard-earned dollars. I was willing to risk that.”

How It Went: Exceedingly well. Rinseroo swiftly ranked on Amazon, then was picked up in a BuzzFeed article. Rinseroo now sells on Amazon, Chewy.com, and Walmart.com, and Lane expects sales to hit $2 million this year. She hired her son full time to handle the tasks she enjoys less, such as e-commerce and logistics. “I’m terrible with unloading trucks,” Lane says.

The Challenge: Knockoffs. “We had a lot of infringers—they would literally copy our exact listing and use the images of me and my dog,” she says. An even bigger problem was that the copycats’ quality was inferior, so Rinseroo started getting bad reviews. The solution was to hire a company called Red Points to chase down the scammers. “They took down 6,000 infringers in one year,” she says.

New Job vs. Old Job: “This is more fun. I’m able to be creative every day, and I just love finding new ways to sell.”

Pro Tip: “If you have a product idea, first look at what’s already out there and then come up with improvements. Create a better mousetrap that will dominate the market.”

Six Apps To Help Small-Business Owners Build Their Brands Online

Social media can be a time suck. These tools make it easier to boost your company’s presence across platforms.

When last year’s lockdowns spurred small businesses to close up shop, many shifted online. While that helped them find more customers and weather the pandemic, it also introduced a new challenge: managing a digital presence on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Turns out there are myriad apps aimed at simplifying tasks such as scheduling posts, analyzing engagement, and tracking purchases. We talked to digital business advisers about their favorite tools for social media management. Here are their top picks:

Hootsuite

The app lets you create and schedule posts across networks, monitor what people are saying, and analyze why your content works—or doesn’t. Hootsuite is “a very smart shortcut and time saver,” says Alisa Cohn, a coach for startups and chief executive officers. $49 a month for one user, up to $599 a month for a companywide license

Ripl

For business owners in need of content creation and engagement monitoring, but without the budget for specialized staff, Ripl can keep costs down. The company offers templates for brand promotion on social media and allows you to schedule posts and track how users engage with your content. $15 a month or $120 a year

Buffer

This platform allows users to set up tweets and Facebook updates from any device or browser, and an extension called Pablo offers a quick way to create images and graphics for social media, making it a good fit for businesses without a lot of resources to devote to social media. “The free option can be a great way for the most budget-strapped small businesses to start out,” says Vicky Wu, CEO of Vicky Wu Marketing. Free, with add-ons from $5 a month

Sprout Social

Lets users schedule posts across platforms, coordinate and code campaigns for future reference, and monitor what competitors are up to on social media. The tool “provides detailed metric reports on performance and engagements that can be compared across specific ranges of dates/times,” says Brooklyn Holt, a marketing specialist with Rice University’s Doerr Institute. $99 to $279 a month per user

SocialPilot

Helps you schedule posts, analyze performance, and discover and share content that’s trending online. Integration with Facebook Ads can make SocialPilot stand out from peers if you’re running ad campaigns. $30/month for a basic plan, up to $150 per month for additional user access and services

Grin

This tool pairs influencers with businesses to help brands better target customers. “You can get massive word-of-mouth traffic,” says Cohn, the startup coach. “And if you tap into influencers who have diverse networks, you can reach a lot more people.” Pricing dependent on the influencer

How The Founders Of A Famed But Failed Ice Cream Chain Plotted Their Return

To Survive The Pandemic, Entrepreneurs Might Try Learning From Nature

A year after selling and exiting their Ample Hills business, Brian Smith and Jackie Cuscuna decided to give another ice cream shop a go.

When Brian Smith and Jackie Cuscuna opened their first Ample Hills Creamery in Brooklyn in 2011, they sold out of ice cream in four days. Ample Hills flavors mix in peppermint patties, cakes and cookies and more — it’s almost a pure expression of childhood id. The company grew slowly at first, but then Bob Iger, then chief executive officer of The Walt Disney Company, ordered some pints and fell in love.

He shared the ice cream with friends; enthralled celebrity endorsements soon followed, as did the prospect of mass-distributed Disney-themed ice creams and scoop shops, including at Walt Disney World. That required an ice cream factory and money. By 2018, Ample Hills had brought in $17 million in equity financing.

The possibilities quickly overwhelmed the small company. Smith and Cuscuna had little business or technical expertise to guide them and no sense of how much money they were spending — until it was about to run out. Ample Hills filed for bankruptcy in March 2020, the day before Covid-19 shut New York City down.

Eventually, the company sold for just $1 million to a West Coast precision machinery manufacturer. Smith and Cuscuna concluded that their future lay elsewhere.

So the couple did the only thing they could do: they started another ice cream parlor, a few blocks away from the original Ample Hills. The Social opened on July 25 with a distinct Seventies vibe. Smith sat down in The Social’s party room one August afternoon to talk about the experience, which included a turn through personal bankruptcy to get free of the guarantee on a $3.5 million company loan.

“People like second chances,” he said, “but there aren’t a lot of stories about third chances.” Cuscuna sat a few tables away hunched over a laptop with an employee. She joined Smith for part of the interview, which has been edited and condensed.

How Did You Go About Building The Social From The Ashes Of Bankruptcy?

Smith: We went in fits and starts down a couple of different paths trying to cobble together enough money to open up a small footprint, just to get back out and do something. But then we decided, ‘let’s build the perfect idea and see if we can find somebody who’s willing to pay to help us build that.’ And that wasn’t the 500 square-foot space.

It was a space like this, 2,700 square feet with a party room and we can do birthday parties, classes, maybe fondue nights. But we needed a concept to build around it, to give context and meaning to the space, and that was the ice cream social. If we could get all that into a tightly knit narrative and story, we felt we could raise the money.

How Did You Hope To Finance It?

Smith: Originally, we were going to follow what’s called a chef or small restaurant model, in which friends and family invest in a single location, and they’re paid back in full based on the profits of the business. Once they’re paid back, then there’s some split percentage of the profits each year for the life of the business.

It forces one shop to absolutely be profitable, and not be focused at all on growth. And that was totally fine. But to be honest, we hadn’t gotten all the way there. It’s a lot of meetings to get $10,000 from each person.

Venture capitalists frequently talk about betting on the jockey, not the horse. But as Ample Hills’s jockey, you basically took $20 million and turned it into one million dollars. So what’s the pitch?

Smith: I think you’re seeing it through the prism only of the financial guardrails and the money. The intangible part that people are willing to pay for is building a brand. The brand was as strong as ever on the day we filed for bankruptcy. We didn’t fail because people didn’t like the product. I still had a beautiful horse.

We have an investor that is not a traditional venture capitalist. He was a businessman himself, but I think the key is nobody obviously would see what we did and invest in us without making sure that the guardrails were in place.

How Did You Find Your Investor?

Jackie Cuscuna: It was just this random Zoom class on pivoting during the pandemic that a business therapist taught in conjunction with another business educator. And it was free. And I was free. I was doing a lot of introspection about all the things that led us astray and how to make this right.

These two people who taught the class worked with the investor. He, too, went bankrupt, and was able to rebuild a $140 million company. They suggested that I talk to him and just get his advice.

Smith: So we met with him a couple of times before he said, “I don’t think you should do this restaurant model. Why don’t we work together?” I think he really responded to second chances and stories.

Cuscuna: When we met him, we were in a very precarious spot. We knew we had something, but we were also fresh from coming out of a loss that was huge. He was very understanding, empathetic, and I would call him to talk me off the ledge, because he went through it. It’s also nice to have a successful businessperson tell us that this kind of thing can happen, you can bounce back.

How Are You Running The Social Differently?

Smith: We have an outsourced finance team that’s running the reports from the beginning. Before we ever opened, I sat down and went through what my COGS — costs of goods sold — were for the different flavors of ice cream. When we started Ample Hills, we were taking bags of money, uncounted, over to the bank. I didn’t even know the term “COGS” when we opened.

Cuscuna: Same for me for labor costs. That wasn’t something that I was personally involved in. Now, I’m pretty obsessed.

Has Your Approach To Growth Changed?

Smith: Yeah. Our plan is to try to open up a couple more shops, either next year or the year after. We’re going to be much more focused on the brick-and-mortar experience. We were chasing wholesale pint distribution with Disney way too early.

If you’re an ice cream business starting out and trying to grow, pints are the quickest way to the deathbed, because the margins are so low. It only works with really high volume. So we need to establish a strong business in our stores, and eventually have that turn to pints down the road.

Ample Hills’s brand doesn’t seem to have depended on you — lines were around the block at their new shop in Brooklyn. How important is brand identity and how much of it is just that if the ice cream is really good, the rest takes care of itself?

Smith: I do think that for a good portion of people, if the ice cream is really great, then all the rest of it is window dressing. But I don’t think people really know why they respond to something — they’re responding to a whole package whether they know it or not. And we have to get up in the morning and want to go to work. And that’s all wrapped up in a package — it’s not just ice cream.

One Food Delivery Startup’s Cost-Saving Trick? Bulk Meal Orders

To Survive The Pandemic, Entrepreneurs Might Try Learning From Nature

In Toronto, ZipLunch’s streamlined process keeps prices down and emissions in check.

ZipLunch couldn’t have launched at a worse time. The startup introduced its food delivery service, targeting Toronto’s downtown corporate lunch crowd, in March 2020—just four days before the city went into pandemic lockdown and its office towers emptied out.

The company quickly adjusted its business model, and less than four months later ZipLunch drivers were bringing meals to white-collar workers at home rather than the office. The pivot let ZipLunch grow while remaining true to its original concept: meals from quality restaurants at reasonable prices and with a minimal carbon footprint.

Founders Majdi Alnabih and Maj Qureshi say meals from ZipLunch are 55% cheaper than similar offerings on other apps, and that the environmental impact of the company’s deliveries is 95% lower. That, they say, is because ZipLunch buys in bulk and passes the savings on to customers.

The company offers limited, curated menus and coordinates drop-offs to minimize travel distances, keeping its costs and emissions down. It doesn’t charge customers a delivery fee, but lunch or dinner orders must be placed before specific cut-off times, and menu items can’t be modified—allowing restaurants to fulfill bulk orders quickly.

Each driver delivers 30 to 50 meals in a particular area, and customers are given a 30-minute delivery window, with a few minutes’ warning so they can meet the driver at the curb. “We’re not an on-demand platform,” says Qureshi, who is head of operations. “If you’re a busy person and you’re a foodie, you like variety. Our platform will work for you.”

Alnabih and Qureshi, who met in high school, set out to improve the food delivery model by fixing problems they’d encountered: high service charges, long wait times, and the dilemma of deciding what to eat.

They wanted to offer an eco-friendly option, particularly for corporate clients looking to reduce their employees’ environmental impact. And they were keen to feature cuisines from a variety of cultures, reflecting Toronto’s diversity.

When Covid-19 restrictions shut down indoor dining and threatened the survival of some of the platform’s 100+ restaurants, ZipLunch temporarily cut its service fee in half, to 10% of the order. Now that dining out is allowed again, the rate is back up to 20%—though that’s still below the industry standard of 25-30%.

Using ZipLunch costs about the same as it would for a restaurant to hire a dedicated driver, but the service is worth it, says Aashwin Jeyakumar, general manager of Ravisoups, a family-owned chain in central Toronto. “ZipLunch is not like other platforms, they’re more personalized,” Jeyakumar says. “I know that the food is being taken care of, especially with soups.”

As employees slowly head back into office towers, Qureshi is seeing business from corporate clients pick up. Qureshi says one of the biggest regrets he has from the past 18 months is not having been aggressive enough. When the company shifted to home deliveries, he says, it could have grabbed more market share by starting out with several neighborhoods rather than just one.

“There were too many unknowns,” Qureshi says, “and we were trying to be cautious.”

ZipLunch is vying with at least four rival delivery platforms in the Toronto area, and industry margins are tight. The company is focused on winning market share, and often discounts menu items below the prices the restaurants charge, absorbing the costs to boost orders. To survive long-term, it’ll have to prove it can become profitable without losing too many customers.

Revenue has been growing an average of 22% month-over-month, and in the first six months of this year was double all of 2020, Qureshi says, putting ZipLunch on track to become profitable toward the end of next year. The founders are seeking more funding to spur growth in Toronto and to eventually expand into other North American cities.

“We are incorporated in both Ontario and Delaware, and while we are primarily targeting venture capitalists in Canada and the United States, we have received significant interest from international investors,” Qureshi says. “We expect ZipLunch to be entering into a new era soon and we are very excited about it.”
