Convertible Debt

An investment instrument which allows both founders and investors to procrastinate on the most important aspect of a business. Essentially an investment in a flamewar. Both entrepreneur and investor can share the delusion of cutting legal costs by skimping necessary discussions which usually backfire and lead to unfair dilution if the company succeeds or ruined professional and personal relationships when the company fails.

Sam: I just raised a million dollars for my startup, GooberData!

Kayla: Cool, how?

Sam: A convertible note! Hey, where are you going?

Angel Investor

The typical Angel Investor can be found in its natural habit, either grazing in the open pastures of tech conferences or herding in secret groups with other Angel Investors. If you happen to be lucky enough to encounter an Angel Investor in the wild, don't try to feed it with Buzzwords as it would run away. Instead, be honest and and try to listen more than you speak.

Hannah: Duuude, I met this Angel Investor at the conference last week and it was sooo cool! I even got a picture

Jack: Woah! They really do have wings

Customer churn

Customer churn refers to when a customer (player, subscriber, user, etc.) ceases his or her relationship with a company. Online businesses typically treat a customer as churned once a particular amount of time has elapsed since the customer's last interaction with the site or service.

Sky customer services uses a newer and far more accurate approach to customer churn prediction: at the core of Sky’s ability to accurately predict which customers will churn is a unique method of calculating customer lifetime value for each and every customer. - http://qwikfix.co.uk/sky-customer-services/

The 'Porn At The End Of The Tunnel' VR Hypothesis

The hypothesis that says that no matter HOW good or bad VR software is developed, VR pornography will pave the way for the platform's future.

Sora: VR is just a fad. People are not going to want to spend more than a month using it. It's a pain to use and it makes me sick to be in their for too long. LETS STOP DEVELOPING FOR VR PLATFORMS. THEY'RE NEVER GONNA SUCCEED.

Wang: Stop thinking rationally and just remember the 'porn at the end of the tunnel.'

Sora: You're right. I'm getting back to work.
