Dubai & Me & Tariq Shaikh

rht-dubai.png

I here to meet with my fantastic partner Tariq Shaikh. He is one of my very most smart and interesting partners – and his for the last 14months been setting up a very special private equity company – something I cant really go deeper into – but you can see on the website and beneath. Its a really REALY big idea – and very hard for my micro patience – but I cant wait until we can tell more…

“RHT Partners is a private equity firm that brings together top calibre investment management professionals, entrepreneurs and prominent financial backers from Europe, the Middle East and the US in a firm dedicated to creating value through carefully considered investments in selected industry sectors. RHT’s values are grounded in high ethics and its investment decisions focussed on generating industry leading returns.”

I have spend most of my time with Tariq – and he also introduced me to some of the real Dubai natives (whom you NEVER MEET) – and I must say I have been extremely positivly impressed and suprsed how much energy and power and vision – there is behind this GROWTH EMPIRES PEOPLE!

I have been watching more TED video – then I have watched television the last 3 weeks – its amazing. Highly recommended is: A Voyage of DNAThe Secret of Succes In 8 Words (must see) – Slowing down in a world built for speed (must see for parrents).

Jens Heimburger Is Smart…

I must say that I have a strange relationship with this Danish Entrepreneur. He is – without having ever talked to him – (called once a got negative response) – a conservative. Background in Danish
In the early nineties – when I was trying to go to University (with bad luck) my friend (Henrik) was working at Heimburger Advertising – a VERY COOL Agency – that reminded me of my at the time favorite TV-soap: Melrose Place :) – everyone was wearing VERY COOL 1993 clothing style – belt just under the brest ;) – and they had free soda and the very newest computers and even a T1 line.

In one line: All I could ever dream of!
– simple as that.

So – I was often at the agency with my friend – hanging out when they did sysadmin stuff – or just scanned some of the bosses private pictures…

Jens Heimburger was a legend – I never saw him there – but he had real Art (not something we had in my childhood home) and he had the A-list client accounts (Bestseller & AcceptCard and used top models – uhhh hot) – and he was friends with bizz celebreties – wow – only weird thing was his political standpoint – and the fact that he fucked up in his was to the political power – and one of the most interesting Danish movies ever was supposingly build on his story . And the Heimburger (the Agenzy) later stole an employee from us (at Ne@tWork)- and we got really angry – really.

Just lately Mr. H has made one of the best deal in Danish history – m2 designer homes – all he did was to produce 10 ads around the theme designer architecture – and put them in Danish papers – and without selling ONE HOUSE – HE SOLD THE CONCEPT for 20mio$ – thats impresssing (if one is into kapitalism).

Mr. Ikea rocks !


Forbes-toppen – so rich is he from the sucks ass swedish site DagensPS.
Funny thing is that yesterday I had lunch with Richard Bunck – the overne of Danmarks biggest distribution company and a national free sunday paper – who had stories about Mr. Ikea (Kamrad) 20 years ago – calling him on sundays to check ho the distribution of the Ikea catalog in Denmark went ;).
Lesson: We all start from scratch – and tis guy has become number 4 rich globally – in a EXTREMELY comptitive market – just by being HARDWORKING and STREETSMART.

I WONDER (Part III)

What does it take for the next generation online business superstars – we Martin is a good example:

Martin Schaedel is by far the most shining star on talent scene in the internet industry. At Lund & Kenner we are very proud to have Martin in our team. We do not blieve en veru tigth structures – but we have already partnered with Martin on a couple of projects. The real value of a tommorows superstar like Martin – is not only the speed of neural network in the brain – its way more about understanding online business – knowing information from propagande and understanding the difference between paid search and natural listings and take it into brick and morter business. (Well maybe people who read this – doesnt even know this ;)
