Enter The $10 Billion Specialty Coffee Market With DOCASA, Inc. (OTCQB:DCSA)

Coffee is taking the United Kingdom by storm and British people are becoming hooked! It’s fresh, it’s hip, and it’s exciting – The Café scene that so many Americans embrace is reshaping the culture of the UK. And with 70 million cups of coffee consumed each day in the UK, the common satirical stereotype – a proper Briton drinking tea from fine china – couldn’t be a more inaccurate depiction of today’s British culture.

Spearheading the Coffee craze in the United Kingdom is a brand named The Department of Coffee and Social Affairs, DOCASA, Inc. (OTCQB:DCSA). With a mobile app handling payments and orders, and apparel, and 13 locations in London, with a 14th location just released in Canary Warf, DOCASA is on the precipice of becoming one of the biggest coffee brands in the UK. DOCASA has been awarded London’s Top CoffeeHouse accolade – as voted for by the public – in Harden’s London Restaurant Awards 2016.

With aggressive expansion and a focus on quality and culture, DOCASA, Inc. (OTCQB:DCSA) is following the same pattern that Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) did in its infancy. Starbucks opened its first location in 1971 and by 1988 had grown to 33 locations. DOCASA, Inc. has reported revenues for the three months ending 2016, of $810,214, with just 13 operating locations. Similarly, Starbucks reported revenue of $1.3 million in 1987, for the year, with 17 operating locations. DOCASA is taking initiatives early, from a technological standpoint, with their fully functional mobile app. Much like theStarbucks app, the DOCASA app allows consumers to pay for their coffee without needing a wallet. In addition, consumers can accumulate rewards on purchases, find locations, and refer friends – all within the app.

In a play similar to Keurig GreenMountain, Inc., (NASDAQ:GMCR), DOCASA, Inc. (OTCQB:DCSA) has positioned itself to take market share in the instant brew, k-cup & coffee pod market. DOCASA’s subsidiary, The Department of Coffee and Social Affairs, is offering their award winning coffee in single serve Nespresso pods. The Nespresso machine by Nestlé (OTCMKTS:NSRGY) is a direct contender to the Keurig machine. DOCASA understands that convenience is a top priority for consumers and the Company is prepared to bring the same coffee shop quality to the single-serve market.

Less known about The Department of Coffee and Social Affairs is the meaning behind the second part of the name ‘Social Affairs’. DOCASA, Inc. (OTCQB:DCSA) engages in humanitarian work in the UK and abroad through volunteering and international charities. One notable charity is the award-winning UK CharityPump Aid organization which provides clean water to over 1.35 million of the poorest people in Sub-Saharan Africa. The Company works on a number of joint awareness and marketing campaigns to raise awareness and fund the Pump Aid organization.

DOCASA has come a long way since their first cup of coffee was served in December of 2010. As of March 22nd, 2017, the total number of coffee shop locations will be 14, with the addition of the Canary Wharf location; positioned at the offices of a leading Fortune 500 company. DOCASA, Inc. (OTCQB:DCSA) plans to open in excess of 150 coffee shops in the UK over the next 3-5 years as part of its roll out strategy to become a prominent player in the $10 Billion Dollar United Kingdom specialty coffee market. DOCASA, Inc. is also pursuing franchising and licensing options for its branded shops and premium products outside of the UK. With the United Kingdom specialty coffee market expected to grow in excess of $20 Billion by 2025, DOCASA, Inc. (OTCQB:DCSA) is looking like an opportunity at these levels.

Google Acquires Eyefluence, Which Has Raised $21.6 Million In VC

Listen To interview With CO-Founder and CEO -Google Acquires Eyefluence, Which Has Raised $21.6 Million In VC, Signaling Continued Interest In VR/AR
October 24, 2016 – By Jason D. Rowley

Google has acquired Eyefluence, which has developed a suite of eyeball-sensing technologies for AR and VR, for an undisclosed sum.

Today, Eyefluence quietly announced on its website that it has been acquired by Google. The company has developed a suite of technologies for tracking eye behavior for virtual reality and augmented reality applications.

The company was founded in 2013 by Jim Margraff, a serial entrepreneur who previously founded Livescribe, a smart pen company that was acquired by Anoto.

To date, the company has raised $21.6 million in two rounds. Their $7.6 million Series A was raised from Intel Capital, who was the sole investor in that round. Their Series B, some $14 million closed in November 2015, was led by Motorola Solutions Venture Capital, with participation from NHN Investment, Dolby Family Ventures, and Jazz Venture Partners. Terms of the acquisition have not been disclosed.

Google’s acquisition of Eyefluence signals continuing interest by the search giant in augmented reality and virtual reality applications. The move may telegraph future strategy in its newly-launched Pixel phone line, which currently has VR capabilities enabled by the Daydream VR headset, which is similar to Samsung’s Gear VR platform in form and function.

How, exactly, Google plans to incorporate Eyefluence into the company’s broader portfolio of products, services and features is to be determined. It’s also unclear whether the acquisition was a strategic move to acquire intellectual property — in the form of Eyefluence’s many patents for eye tracking technology — as a counterbalance to Facebook and Microsoft’s continued research and development efforts into VR and AR applications.

Who are your influencers?

You may have reached out to clients in the past and asked them to be referrals for you. But, influencing is more than an individual endorsement. Influencers have the power to sway groups of people.

What to look for:

Credibility. Your Influencers are individuals who others find reliable, believable and authoritative. As important, these individuals have a built-in trust with others.
Authenticity. Your Influencers are genuine. They are individuals who are the real deal and there is an expectation that what they say is truthful and legitimate.
Relevancy. Your Influencers are important because what they say is applicable to you. Their knowledge of who you are and what you do have meaning and significance to others.
Your influencers have a solid following or community that is engaged.

Why Entrepreneurs Fail to Raise Capital

www.positivestocks.com Positive Stocks- Why Entrepreneurs Fail to Raise Capital
The biggest battle you have to win when raising capital is the battle in your mind. This battle begins long before any shots are fired. As an entrepreneur, you must be willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done. First and foremost, you must unconditionally adopt the attitude of “failure is not an option.” Visualize, in detail, on a daily basis, your successful outcome. With that said, you’re going to be playing many roles in this process (from general to officer to infantryman). Many of your days will be spent doing the less than glamorous tasks of preparation and prospecting. Accept that now. If you want to be the leader of a Fortune 100 company some day, you have to start by paying your dues today—it’s simply the cost of success.

Reason #1 – Entrepreneurs Fail to Prepare and Plan Their Attack
Most entrepreneurs fail to raise capital because they don’t strategically plan their attack. They bring knives to gun fights and then wonder why they die in the process. Entrepreneurs’ passion, while wonderful in its purest form, makes them impetuous and impatient. They often skip the preparation phase completely and move right on to trying to find investors. If they are lucky enough to get anyone to listen to them, they are quickly and rudely shot down (most likely because they are fumbling around describing their idea; they don’t speak the investors’ language; and their corporate information is either poorly done or non-existent). By this point, the formerly passionate, budding entrepreneurs have most likely depleted their savings accounts, and their spouse, family and friends have started calling them a complete nutcase. It is no longer possible to get out of bed to face another day of rejection, so he or she stops prospecting for new investors and starts looking for a job. Not a very nice story, huh? Unfortunately, it is a true story that happens all the time.

Reason #2 – There Are More Entrepreneurs Than Lenders/Investors
It’s a fact of life that there are more entrepreneurs looking for capital than there are investors writing checks. If you don’t stand out and do it right, you’re dead. Your company must be unique, you must be better prepared and you must prove (as much as possible) that the market will buy your product or service by bringing in revenue. Then you must convince the investors by presenting a fabulous story, which gets their mind racing about the possibility of making serious money and opens their purse strings!

Reason #3 – Entrepreneurs Lack Strong Problem Solving Skills and Give Up Too Soon
This may be the most lethal obstacle of all: most entrepreneurs simply lack problem-solving skills (essentially survival skills) and they give up too soon! Remember, this is war and there are bullets and bombs going off everywhere and every day. Some days are worse than others, but there will always be problems—you can count on that! This path you have chosen is brutal. Therefore, if you’re going to win this capital-raising war, you have to learn some serious survival skills. You must learn how to stop the panic and overcome the problem by out-thinking your adversities. You must develop a system for coping with these issues that becomes a natural reflex.

Reason #4 – The Total Package Isn’t Sexy Enough and Your Story Stinks
The last reason entrepreneurs fail to raise capital is that their total package lacks the hooks or sexiness that gets investors excited. In other words, you didn’t sell them on your product or service, or maybe your management team is weak or your numbers don’t have enough profit margin! Something didn’t make the cut. Each investor is different, but in general there are certain criteria that each one seeks. Therefore, if you know what the investor wants, you must make sure you assemble a sexy package of your product or service that gets noticed! In addition, you have to be able to tell a story that gets investors sucked in and their adrenaline going. This narrative has to make sense and it must be sold with passion and conviction. You have to make investors see themselves as part of your entire story through to the end—the exit strategy. When you can do that, you’ll stand a great chance of raising your start-up capital.
