Qiqqa Entrepreneur Wins 5k

James Jardine from the University of Cambridge in the UK won third prize in the post-graduate category of the Santander University Entrepreneurship Awards.

He scooped 5,000 for his company a company that provides free software which helps students and researchers manage information.

The awards aim to support and encourage university students to pursue their business ideas and are open to students from all 58 universities within the Santander programme.

To mark the fifth anniversary of Santander Universities in the UK, Santander chief executive, Ana Botn, announced an additional 1.5m of funding to UK universities, taking its total investment to 7 million during 2012, as well as 100 new mobility grants of 2,500 available to UK students to study abroad.

She also extended the banks support for small businesses with the launch of a new programme to place graduates from the countrys top universities on internships with SMEs across the UK.

The programme to encourage entrepreneurialism amongst graduates is a collaboration between Santander and its university partners and aims to promote the benefits of working for a SME to third-year or recently graduated students, while providing smaller businesses with an injection of talent not always easy to obtain by companies with limited administration resources.

Santander will work with its partner universities to find students and companies who will benefit most from the scheme and will help with placement and administration, including project management, as well as part-funding a basic salary for the students.

Ana Botn said: Youth unemployment and particularly graduate unemployment is one of the most pressing issues for the UK economy. We hope our new programme offering 500 student internships to SMEs can help provide our talented graduate community with the opportunity to gain vital experience in the work place, whilst opening their eyes to the benefits of working for smaller companies.

SMEs have not typically attempted to compete with the graduate recruitment schemes of the big FTSE players and we hope that this initiative will give a wider range of companies the benefit of fresh, young talent.

As the engines of progress and invention, universities have an important role to play in incubating the enterprises of tomorrow. Santander is proud to be supporting and recognising the entrepreneurial skills demonstrated by students through our Entrepreneurship Awards, as well as announcing an additional 1.5 million of funding to support British universities, taking our total investment to 7 million in the UK and 120 million globally, this year.

Renting Office Space To Save Money

Running a business is not an easy task. You need to have a lot of things in place to ensure that the business is running properly. A major one among these is an office space. You can always buy an office space to run the office properly. It will provide you with the freedom to design and decorate the space in the way you wish. However, buying a space usually costs a lot. If you do not have that much money to spare, you can look for some other option. Getting an office space on rent can help you save money, but still have access to enough space.

Get a Space of the Right Size

When you are renting an office space, you need to keep in mind a number of things. Ensure that the space is not too large. Getting a space, which is extremely big in size, will result in quite a large area remaining unused. Thus, you will be paying for something, which is not of any use to you. At the same time, you should not go for any office, which has less space. This will mean that your employees will have work in a cramped space. It can have a negative effect on the quality of their performance and can decrease productivity as well. Hence, you should select the space where you want to set up your office quite prudently.

Do Not Overshoot Your Budget

When you are looking for an office space, you are likely to get a lot of options. However, many of them will come at different rates. It is important for you not to overspend while renting any space for your office. Instead, you should always have a set budget for the purpose. When you are planning to rent a space, ensure that you do not cross this budget. If you do, it can impact other operations of your business in a negative way. Hence, always try to find an office space, which comes within your budget. This can help you avoid any type of loss in the long run due to overspending.

Rent a Small Space for a Small Business

If you have a small business, there is no need for you to go for a large space. Hence, you can always look for small office space for rent. It can have multiple advantages. You will not have to pay a lot of money to buy this space, as you are getting it on rent. Moreover, you can avoid the excessive amount of spending, which is associated with the maintenance of a large space. Instead, you can keep the space in the best conditions without investing a lot of money for maintenance.

Currency Trading And Money Laundering

Money Laundering is a big topic these days in Foreign Exchange circles. The criminal or terrorist element is almost certainly participating in that high tech world. You have probably heard or read of somebody being arrested for this recently.

Money laundering is the process a criminal uses to distance themselves from the proceeds of their crime, yet maintain access to the funds. Most basically, a criminal attempts to take enough steps with the money that it is untraceable to the crime.

Laundering generally takes three distinct stages:

* Placement: Smurfers are used to introduce the dirty money into the system, these smurfers change the form of the money numerous times until the launderer feels the original funds cannot be traced back to them.
* Layering: Layering involves the changing of cash into drafts, money orders, traveler’s checks etc. Launderers ensure each transaction is under reporting laws; so many smaller transactions are made instead of fewer large transactions. This way each transaction looks legitimate and no paper trail is created.
* Integration: Once the money has changed form several times, the launderer has buried the trail of its origination. At this point it is impossible to trace the funds back to the original crime. The launderer is now able to introduce the funds back into use, often through a front company.

Reputable currency traders are concerned about money laundering. Being non-bank Financial Services Companies, makes currency traders susceptible to money launderers. Involvement in money laundering can result in fines, criminal charges, loss of reputation and loss of business to the currency trader. In some cases where the money laundering is for terrorism purposes, the results can be catastrophic.

How do currency traders prevent money laundering? Without going into too much detail, reputable currency traders will get to know you very well before proceding to set up an account or allowing any transactions to take place. Traders will also get to know your beneficiaries very well. The whole process is designed to eliminate any doubt about who is involved in any transactions and what they are transacting.

The good news is that much of what currency traders will ask you is designed to protect your interest as well. If you are doing business with someone in a foreign country, you want to make sure you are going to get paid for your goods or services. You also want to make sure that the foreign business actually exists as claimed. And you also want to make sure the foreign business has a bank account in good standing. These are all things the currency trader will guarantee for you.

Manifest Money By Falling In Love 5 Simple Ways To Love Money

Manifesting money is easy once you’ve fallen in love with it.

Most people do not love their finances, because it’s in a negative state. Fall in love with money. Be clear about the amount of moolah you want to manifest. State it and mean it! It should not be how much you can earn, but how much you want to receive.

Money is magnetic energy. You are a magnet that attracts all things via the signal you emit through your thoughts and feelings. To become a powerful magnet of prosperity, fall in love with money and believe that you have what it takes to attract it.

Why People Hate Money

1. They don’t have enough of it
2. It’s hard to find and make
3. It’s associated as the source of all evil
4. The belief that they can’t be rich
5. The belief that it’s the only source of happiness

Most people are attracted to things they love; the same is true with loot. If you want to manifest riches, the first step is to fall in love with it.

You may be thinking “Isn’t it true most people have very little or no funds at all?” If this is your BS (Belief System) this is the reason, why you haven’t fallen in love with money. You believe it’s not easily available to you.

There are people who mistreat, behave and talk bad about those who have large sums of dough in their possession. In doing so, the Law of Attraction is reversed and works against them causing them to lose out.

There is another group of people who associate this currency with evil. They believe wealth is the source of all evil and thus end up hating it. While there are others who even go to the extent of killing for cash.

How to Fall In Love with Money

1. Be clear about the amount you want to manifest
2. Believe that you have what it takes to attract it
3. Know it’s needed to live a fulfilling life
4. Understand that it’s a good thing
5. Remember there’s an unlimited amount available to you

There are those who say that money is not everything nor is it the only source of happiness. However, it is not possible to accomplish or own anything without currency.

Money is used to accomplish a lot of things both good and bad; therefore it is upon you to decide what you intent to do with it once you have it.

Most people limit themselves as far as how much capital they would like to have. It should not always be about how much you can make but rather how much you want. And there is no limit to what you can achieve as long as you know how to manifest money.

Mcdonald’s Franchise Review – The Facts

Owning a McDonald’s franchise can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life if you know what you’re doing, if you have the resources to qualify and if you do it the right way. However, before you do your share of serving billions and billions of hamburgers worldwide, there’s a few things you need to be aware of in order to make the right decision.

Today, there are roughly over 30,000 restaurants spanning the globe in over 100 countries. McDonald’s franchise has been in existence since 1955 and the franchise owners have played huge roles in the overall success of the company.

When considering to buy a McDonald’s franchise, you have 2 options in which to do so. The first is to purchase an existing restaurant from the company or another franchise owner, which happens to be the most common practice. The second option is to purchase a brand new restaurant that is built from the ground up. In both cases, you must have a minimum of $300,000 down payment that can NOT be borrowed. You have to physically have it in liquid assets.

Other important factors in buying a McDonald’s franchise include having significant business experience, good management skills, the ability to manage finances well, you must be able to execute and deliver on a business plan, you have to maintain exceptional customer service and you have to have a good credit history. If you can’t show you have all of these capabilities, then this franchise may not be a good fit for you.

Most experts will tell you that breaking even in the first 7-10 years is doing a real good job of running your McDonald’s franchise. Part of the ongoing expenses include the traditional expenses like rent, utilities, inventory, wages and of course the 4% royalty fees that are based on gross revenues and not net profits. What’s interesting to know is that the McDonald’s corporation usually owns the land the franchises are on and the franchise owners pay their rent to the corporation. In fact, it can be argued that McDonald’s is actually in the business of real estate since they are one of the largest holders of real estate in the world.

Bottom line is that owing a McDonald’s franchise is not for the timid. You have to have considerable net worth, a good track record and still get approval by the company. Not all franchises are this way and if you don’t qualify for a McDonald’s franchise, then there are plenty of other viable options for you.

A Market Data APIMaking an Interactive Financial Information Display Possible on Your Website

Why do you need a market data API in order to display financial data on your website? An API is an Application Programming Interface, an essential part of the interactivity of Web 2.0. A programming interface is like a foreign language translator-It allows one computer operating on one system to talk to another computer operating on another system. Imagine how complex this can be when computer systems are communicating with market data. When you are providing financial information on your website for your visitors, APIs are necessary to display all but static, non-changing information.

Look for a market data solutions provider that can offer several different code-based APIs or SDKs (Software Development Kits) to ensure that you can connect with data feeds and tickers for real-time, delayed, end of day, and historical information. Having access to a .Net, Java, or COM/Win32 API will make this communication more easeful. APIs should have both a server side component as well as a client-side component.

Sample code should be provided with source code available for your tech team.

Consult with your tech team first to determine whether your system would most easily connect to a .NET, Java, or COM/Win32 API. Then find the market data solution firm that can provide the appropriate API for your system. If you need a .NET API to receive market data, make sure it is written in fully manageable C# code and built within a .NET 2.0 framework. If it is a Java API that you need, of course, make sure it is written in pure Java. No external native libraries will be needed. The Legacy COM/WIN32 API should be available from your market data solutions firm if your system requires this type of interface.

If this all sounds like a lot of mumbo jumbo to you, just make sure that the market data solutions company that you select offers complete code samples, documentation, and complete customized tech support, regardless of the market data API available. Broadcast feeds should come in a format that compresses and consolidates direct feeds from any exchange. Check to be certain that they offer financial data feeds in raw or original exchange format, utilizing HTTP transfer in XML, CSV, and FTP. And most importantly, make sure that the data you receive is the most timely, accurate data available. Your data solutions firm must provide reliable figures, with transactions, inserts, and corrections reported as they are reported by the exchanges. Visit, where you’ll find more information about each marketdata API available and how to get started on posting your own white-label financial data feed on your company’s website.

Your area or booth needs to look uncluttered and tidy. It should have drapery and table covers that have your logo and are matching with company colors. You want to have a few of your fine promotional items showing so that people can see the good stuff that you are giving out. But keeping it simple looks good and will draw people.

Hard Times Ahead For Eu Carbon Investment As Meps Reject Backloading Plan

It seems that for the time being carbon investment in the EU will not get the much needed price support, with a committee of MEPs rejecting plans for propping up the price in the EU’s carbon market. The decision predictably sent prices of carbon allowances down, spiralling to a new record low of below 3 a tonne.

MEPs Reject Backloading Plan

On January 25, BusinessGreen reported that the European Parliament’s Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE) committee voted against a proposal by the European Commission to withhold permits from the market before reintroducing them at a later date. The process, known as backloading, was intended to remove part of the oversupply of EU carbon allowances (EUAs) in the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS).

Carbon Price Hits a Fresh Low

Although the vote is just one of the steps in a process which could still see the backloading plan implemented, the result sent the trading price of EUAs to a record low of 2.81 a tonne. BusinessGreen quoted Miles Austin, executive director of the Climate Markets and Investment Association, as saying that without the backloading it was difficult to see how the EU ETS would remain relevant for future climate policy. It will be driving little significant change, certainly not at the scale needed for Europe to promote a low-carbon economy and remain internationally competitive, Mr Austin added.

Analysts have estimated that the price of EUAs needs to be approximately ten times higher to drive low carbon investment on a large-scale.

Wake-Up Call

On January 24, Reuters quoted the EUs Climate Commissioner Connie Hedegaard as saying that the carbon price fall to less than 3 should serve as a wake-up call to EU Member States to back the Commissions backloading plan. It must be clear to all that when the Commission warned that the ETS price could drop dramatically it was not a false warning but a real possibility, Ms Hedegaard was quoted as saying.

Indeed,carbon investment prospects in the EU seem grim at present, with Reuters reporting that following the parliamentary vote SocieteGenerale cut its forecasts for average EUAs carbon prices from 2013 to 2015 by around 30 percent. Negative news and events relating to the EU ETS continue to pile up and come from all sides, the bank said. The EU ETS has become a one-way market, spiralling down.
