Muxlim (Finland), a global Muslim community interviewed by Tech Crunch UK
Muxlime is a great friend of the SIME house. Their CEO and founder Mohamed El-Fatatry was a speaker at SIME Copenhagen last October. And Muxlim has been nominated for the SIME Awards Mighty 36 this year. We found this very interesting interview by Tech Crunch on Muxlim where Mohamed El-Fatatry talks about how he is empowering the whole Muslim community and trying to change the perceptions of Muslims in the global scene.
SIME Talks 11: Mia Rose, the youtube sensation says its all about being honest
Mia Rose, born January 1988 is a music sensation of the digital era. In days where artists are shelling out loads of money to get music distributed, she went right into the heart of it all, youtube, and did not shed a single penny towards distribution.
But, et voila, guess what, she is now youtube’s most subscribed musician ever, all in a matter of couple of years. It might be a bit unfair to call it a “gotcha” moment and state the unobviously obvious claim that music should be solely based on channels like youtube and we can stop the bleeding in the music industry. But calling Mia a one off wonder would also be a bit harsh. It was just the right thing at the right moment at the right place and a bit of business sense that made her a sensation of tomorrow.

FileRide is a pioneering social desktop connecting like-minded people through the files and links they have in common.

SIME Awards: Nominee of the Day
Now that the SIME Awards cat is slowly jumping off the bag (atleast partially), we thought we should do some canvassing for the nominees who actually got selected in Round 1. And so starting from today, we will put together a quick section called Nominee of the Day (NOTD) every single day, where 1 nominated company gets a quick introduction, if available, the entrepreneur behind the company gets an introduction too and the jury motivation for the company to be part of the SIME Rising Stars of Scandinavia. Meanwhile, we also getting in touch with the companies and their founders who are now part of the SIME family to make sure we get all “their” side of the story too.
SIME Awards, the doors open to the Mighty 36: Meet the first 12.
SIME Awards this year focuses on 2 categories (as explained in the prev. post)
“SIME Rising Stars from the North” and “SIME Grand Prize, the former committed to finding the next Skype from Scandinavia, the later awarding the “most innovative big company”.
SIME Talks 9 – Nostalgia Edition: Morten Lund "I say a lot of Bullshit. Everyone does. No one really knows anything"
Maverick, Crazy, Non-conformist, Radical, Innovative, the hippie entrepreneur, all can also go by the 2 letter word, “ML” (for Morten Lund). He is so outspoken, loud, daring, and if you have watched him speak, you can lose a million dollars betting that he is not Scandinavian. Some say he is the pride of the lost Scandinavia, the one that went down with the Vikings. Whatever be his roots, the wiring in ML is quite simple. He does not believe in bull shit (in his own words) such as “going by the books, go by the rules, go by the mainstream”. Instead the man is a complete “screw it, just do it” kinds, and he wears that attitude every day to work, be it investing in Skype or being part of starting up dead duck companies (that made him officially bankrupt in 2008) . For him, its all about just doing it, or as he says “just fu**ing doing it”.
