Chinese tech companies write off India

Five months after his business was banned in India, Aaron Li has resigned himself to being locked out of the country forever.

Sitting in his office in the eastern Chinese city of Hangzhou, Mr Li said he had no idea when Club Factory, which sold cheap fashion and homewares to hundreds of millions of Indians through their smartphone, would be allowed to trade again after New Delhi blacklisted scores of Chinese apps.

India this week banned 43 more Chinese apps, continuing a campaign against Chinese tech companies that began in June after a border clash between the two countries left 21 Indian soldiers dead. The so-called “digital strike” has hit large Chinese tech companies including Alibaba, Tencent and ByteDance.

Last year, Mr Li raised $100m from investors to expand in India, as Club Factory hit the top of India’s download charts and was looking at profitability. He said he saw

Report Suggests Government, Companies Factor Permanent Remote Work into Future Operations

A report by Forrester indicates more than 53% of the U.S. workforce would like to continue working remotely—at least some—once the COVID-19 pandemic ends.

Released Nov. 17, the report found fewer Americans (44%) are eager to return to daily office life and mirrors a recent survey of federal employees who expect at least regular telework to continue into the foreseeable future.

Agencies and companies, Forrester states, would be wise to augment their existing workforce strategies to meet the expectations of their collective workforces.

“Rather than assume that centralized locations are the best way to engage workers and provide those outcomes, the anywhere-work approach recognizes that people—employees, prospective talent, managers, and other stakeholders—all have preferences that, post-pandemic, will break the traditional definition of and boundary between in-office and home-based work,” the report states.

The report makes clear not every employee will be able to work from home. According to Forrester, approximately

These Chicago Tech Companies Navigate the Client Feedback Loop

One advantage of living at an apartment complex that uses Livly is the ability to use the tech company’s community feed software, which encourages residents and staff to communicate in an open forum in real time.

But recently, Livly learned of a problem with this feed.

Some property managers had felt burdened by approving every feed post and wanted more control over what could be posted to the feed in general. So Livly created a solution.

“We rolled out an automatic moderation capability for our community feed,” Rachel Blake, a data analyst at Livly, said. “It automatically flags potentially problematic posts, while not requiring every message to await approval. Residents can still engage with one another in real time, while property managers maintain the control they desire.”

This solution would not have been possible if not for Livly’s client feedback loop. It’s a key component of any business to learn

Two Colorado Springs companies get state grants | Business

Titan Robotics and Terra Ferma, both of Colorado Springs, have been awarded grants totaling nearly $500,000 to help turn new technology into commercial products.

The two companies were among 37 Colorado firms that received $7.66 million in grants from the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade under the agency’s advanced industries accelerator program. The grants are to demonstrate proof of concept and to help attract or retain early-stage capital for companies to turn newly developed technology into commercial products that can be created or made in Colorado and exported globally.

The office received 100 grant applications and invited 24 companies to pitch their plans last month to a special committee. The Colorado Economic Development Commission awarded the grants last week.

Titan Robotics builds and sells large-scale, industrial 3-D printers; it also does print jobs for customers. Titan  plans to use its $250,000 grant to build a demonstration unit

UK telecom companies face big fines under new security law

British telecom companies face hefty fines if they don’t comply with strict new security rules under a new law proposed to Parliament on Tuesday

LONDON — Telecom companies in Britain face hefty fines if they don’t comply with strict new security rules under a new law proposed in Parliament on Tuesday that is aimed at blocking high-risk equipment suppliers like China’s Huawei.

The Telecommunications (Security) Bill tightens security requirements for new high speed 5G wireless and fiber optic networks, with the threat of fines of up to either 10% of sales or 100,000 pounds ($134,000) a day for companies that don’t follow the rules.

The draft law paves the way for the U.K. government to formalize Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s decision in July prohibiting Huawei from building Britain’s

Science and tech companies can scale faster in innovation districts

Scaling is one of the biggest challenges any company faces, requiring founders and leaders to set aside their science and innovation skills, and become experts in finance, recruitment, networking and administration. Finding the right people and organisations can help bridge that knowledge – and that’s easier when you’re based in an innovation district.

Research from Bruntwood SciTech has revealed that access to talent, the NHS, universities and the public sector are key needs for science and technology businesses – along with being part of a sector-specific community. Bruntwood SciTech’s innovation districts can be found in Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and Birmingham – but there’s more to it than just a convenient location. Alongside a community of like-minded companies, such innovation districts bring access to business support, financial assistance and a deep-rooted understanding of the challenges and opportunities in the science and tech sector.

Help with all of those aspects is key
