2e2 Rescue Deal: Oakley Capital To Buy Chunk #skynews

2e2 Rescue Deal: Oakley Capital To Buy Chunk.

Peter Dubens, Oakley Capital VC fund (he chairman of Daisy) is good buddies with Phillip Green (Topshop man) – who funnily enough is good mates with Matthew Riley, CEO of Daisy.


The 2e2 effect & some advice for IT contractors in today’s market…please RT

Given the recent demise of 2e2 what lessons can you ‘Mr or Mrs Contractor’ learn to protect yourself & your revenue?

…the thoughts of Chairman Mills.

1. Understand your contract – check the wording of contract with the direct client or agency contract. What does it say about what would happen re: payment in the event of administration/insolvency?

2. Credit check the client and/or agency.

3.  Negotiate more frequent invoicing and quicker payment terms.

4. Look at some form of invoice payment protection insurance.

5. Keep your dukes up and protect yourself at all times.

2 min read on the future of cloud services aka the thoughts of Chairman Mills…

– Birth of multiple cloud service providers worldwide differentiated on geo or industry/vertical focus.

– Higher prices charged.

– IT channel/reseller becomes uber specialised to do onsite cloud plumbing for certain industries/verticals that will never ever buy off prem cloud services.

– Consolidation of cloud service industries into smaller group of global players. Differentiate on price/brand.

– Lower prices charged.

My advice. Invest in DC’s in low cost/tech savvy countries, e.g. India, Vietnam.

Here endeth the thoughts of Chairman Mills.
