You never hear the names of some of the world's best SaaS startups. Why waste money building awareness among consumers when you can quickly and steadily grow your B2B business across Japan then across Asia? Today Yu Taniguchi founder of TableCheck returns to the show and answers that question. TableCheck is rapidly expanding their table-management system business by throwing out a lot of the traditional SaaS playbook, and Yu lays out a model for sustainable, scalable SaaS startups. It's a great conversation, and I think you'll enjoy it. Show Notes How the TMS market has changed in the last five years Why the first mover advantage is not really an advantage Maintaining differentiation in an increasingly competitive market The huge flaw in the current generation of SaaS "best practices" Demand-side vs supply-side startups Why you should only take the VC investment that you actually (desperately) need Why Japanese (and otter) startups need to be thinking about global markets from day 1 Concrete (and sad) examples of what's wrong with Japan's education system Links from the Founder Everything you ever wanted to know about TableCheck TableCheck Twitter @tablecheck LinkedIn Page TableCheck on Facebook Follow Yu on Instagram Friend him on Facebook Connect on LinkedIn Transcript Welcome to Disrupting Japan, straight talk from Japan's most successful entrepreneurs. I'm Tim Romero and thanks for joining me. Some of the most important and successful B2B startups fly under the radar. And that makes sense when you think about it.  When success depends on dominating a specific business niche, who really cares if most consumers have never heard of you? In fact, as we'll see, that can actually put your whole startup at risk. Today, Yu Taniguchi, old friend and founder of TableCheck joins us again on Disrupting Japan.  Now, TableCheck makes a table management solution for restaurants, and Yu and the team have taken a very different approach than most of the competition in this space.  The last time Yu came on the show, we talked about his business model and how to expand globally with very little capital. There's a link to the episode in the show notes, and I strongly recommend you listen to it because it was really a good one and we'll be covering a hundred percent new ground today. Today, as we catch up with Yu, we find his strategy has worked with some refinements, and TableCheck is expanding rapidly across APAC.  This is a great real world case study of how Japanese startups can go global. Yu and I also talk about how the current generation of SaaS business models is broken, how to protect your startup from market downturns, and some really good advice about the two kinds of fundraising plans you need to have to survive.  But you know, Yu tells that story much better than I can, so let's get right to the interview.  Interview  Tim: We're sitting here with Yu Taniguchi of TableCheck, who is making integrated reservations, CRM billing and more for restaurants. Yu, it is so good to have you back again. Thanks for sitting down with us. Yu: Thank you so much for inviting me. I'm very honored and excited to be here. Tim: It's been four and a half years since you were last on the show and so much has changed since then. You were growing fast then, you've continued to, so tell me about your customers today. Who's using TableCheck and how many are there now? Yu: We have roughly 7,000 restaurants using our solution both in Japan and overseas. Back then when we did the interview, I think it was around 2,000 restaurants. Roughly we've more than tripled since then and taking in consideration that out of the four years, two years have been during the COVID. Tim: Let's talk about what's changed in the market.

While decarbonizing the built environment has long captured the attention of Silicon Valley, they have recently started focusing on the foundational material itself: cement. The increased attention on low-carbon cement comes as the Portland Cement Association is working to meet the goals set out in its Roadmap to Carbon Neutrality—carbon neutrality across the entire cement-concrete-construction chain by 2050. Crucially, Silicon Valley's interest shows the benefit of collaboration across the entire chain, with end users stating carbon neutrality as a goal in new construction.

New Home Prices & Whack-A-Mole Supply Chain Issues

The housing market may be slowing down, but new homes are still a complicated, expensive process, mostly because of supply chain issues. One Bank of America analyst, who co-authored a new report on residential construction, says it's like a game of whack-a-mole. He says: “Every time they find one thing that they fix, another one pops up.” Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. If you like our podcast, please subscribe and leave us a review.BofA just released its 2022 “Who Builds the House” report, which found that a shortage of building materials is one of the primary reasons for higher home prices. According to co-author Rafe Jadrosich, prices have risen at an “unprecedented rate” over the last few years because of the shortage of building materials. He told MarketWatch: “There's always a new category that's creating the bottleneck.” (1)"Who Builds the House?"The report says that the cost of materials to build a home went up 42% in just three years, from 2018 to 2021, and that it has consistently outpaced the rate of overall inflation. Additional costs for materials add approximately $35,000 to the price tag, and bring the total amount for raw materials to around $118,000. That's about a third of the cost of a new home. The other two-thirds of the cost go towards the land, and the labor, which can vary from region to region.Rising inflation is also contributing to higher costs for all the things needed to finish a home including window treatments, floor coverings, appliances, and household furnishings. MarketWatch reports that the index for household furnishings and operations rose .04% in May with an annual rate of increase of 8.9%.The BofA report used data from the National Association of Home Builders, and analyzed 14 different expense categories, to determine how much it costs, on average, to build a new home.Framing Lumber and Engineered WoodThe dominant category is the lumber needed to frame a home. Nine out of ten homes are framed with lumber. That can be natural wood or engineered wood, which is a mixture of wood fiber and plastic. The report says 30.2% of the material used to build a home falls into this category. The cost for this portion is about $35,500, and right now, lumber prices are falling. But they've also been on a roller coaster. Lumber futures have come off a high of about $1,700 for a thousand board feet in May of last year. They were recently down to about $580, but in April of 2020 they were half that amount. Lumber prices are moving contrary to inflation because of a drop in home sales, and a cut back in home starts by builders. Home starts dropped a whopping 14.4% from April to May due to a slowdown in construction for both single-family and multi-family homes.Higher mortgage rates are contributing to the housing market slowdown. Housing experts are predicting that lumber prices will come down farther, but builders are still dealing with high prices for other materials.Concrete for the FoundationConcrete accounts for another big expense category at almost 9% of the total cost of materials. It typically costs around $10,500 for the concrete.Windows and DoorsWindows and doors are a big expense. They account for another $10,500 or about 9% of the cost of materials, but those costs are under pressure because windows and doors are consistently hard to find. Builders have been scrambling over the last year to get what they need to finish homes.As Jadrosich explains, if you haven't installed the windows: “You can't put your appliances in, or paint your walls, or finish your floors.” He says until that situation improves, “you're gonna have a pretty slow, elongated build cycle for a lot of the home builders.” A recent New York Times article says it all in the title: “4 Bed, 3 Bath, No Garage Door.”((One of our RealWealth development projects experienced this kind of supply chain issue last year. The developer had to drive to another state to get the garage door he needed to finish the home.))Other MaterialsOther materials that builders must get their hands on include siding, plumbing, cabinets, HVAC systems, roofing, flooring, structural panels, wallboard and drywall, appliances, architectural coating, fiberglass insulation, and paint.Housing Market SlowdownChief Economist for the NAHB, Robert Dietz, said in a recent press release that the cost of building a home is up 19% year-over-year. He says it's due to “a variety of building inputs, except for lumber, which has experienced recent declines due to a housing slowdown.” (4)And builders are not happy. The NAHB does a monthly survey on builder confidence, and it's been lower for six months in a row. Dietz says it's a “clear sign of a slowing housing market in a high inflation, slow growth economic environment.” He says: “The entry-level market has been particularly affected by declines for housing affordability and builders are adopting a more cautious stance as demand softens with higher mortgage rates.” He's calling on the government to create policies that support the supply-side of the housing market.Housing ShortageAccording to Freddie Mac, the U.S. needs an additional 4 million homes to keep up with demand. Since many people can't afford the high cost of homeownership, they will continue to rent. There's a problem that needs to be fixed in the housing market, but people need housing, and what's filling the gap right now are rentals.If you'd like to learn more about how the economy is impacting the housing market, check out my recent webinar.

We welcome Mihaly Fazekas, assistant professor at the Central European University, Department of Public Policy, who works on a range of topics related to corruption. The interview covers how how his own personal experience with bad public infrastructure inspired him to conduct corruption research, why he believes that corruption research would benefit from a better understanding of what are actually ymeasuring when we study corruption and the importance of investigative journalism (for example the invesgtative journalism center direct36; https://www.direkt36.hu/en/). Mihaly then makes a compelling pitch why public procurement offers a relevant and interesting subject for corruption researchers. The enf of the interview deals with the intersection between big data, technology and corruption, such as whether new corruption risks emanate from Artificial Intelligence and how AI conversely might be used to fight corruption.

Whether it's eating healthier, getting exercise, starting a meditation practice or staying socially connected, figuring out what to do to be happy might be simple – but actually doing these things and living in a way that lets us experience happiness is much harder. When we know there are things we can do that will make us healthier and happier, why do we struggle to actually do them? Why do we get caught in a cycle of chasing happiness instead of choosing joy, even when we know better? This is what Gretchen Rubin wanted to understand when she began studying happiness and why people form the habits they do. It turns out that it has everything to do with how we relate to expectations. Gretchen discovered that there are four different “tendencies” that tell us how different people approach habits and expectations – whether we question expectations, comply with expectations, rebel against expectations or uphold them from within. We are born with our tendency and there's no right or wrong way to be, but our ability to pursue happiness and form habits is directly connected to which tendency we're wired with. In this episode, Gretchen describes each of the four tendencies in detail and ways to work with your type to go after the life you want. She also talks about habit formation and the different approaches to starting a new habit, so you can figure out which one works best for you! This is so fascinating and has major implications for how we structure our lives, how we work with each other in business and relationships and so much more! Listen to discover: Concrete steps we can take to start boosting our happiness The "four tendencies" personality framework The Upholder, The Obliger, The Questioner and The Rebel – four different ways we all respond to inner and outer expectations How your tendency impacts how you form habits How to overcome resistance and work with your tendency to be as successful and happy as possible Misconceptions about happiness and techniques to form better habits Though it's true that everyone is different in terms of what makes us happy, we're also all different in how we get to the things that make us happy. When we understand our wiring, we can overcome resistance and set ourselves up to achieve the life we want, in a way that is uniquely ours. "Our physical experience is always going to color our emotional experience." - Gretchen Rubin   "The key to happiness is relationships." - Gretchen Rubin   "Don't suit other people. Suit yourself." - Gretchen Rubin   "I'm a big believer in the genetic roots of personality." - Gretchen Rubin   "We can work with each other to help us all achieve our aims, but sometimes we have to provide a different way from what would work for us." - Gretchen Rubin   "Your communication style would change once you know this."  - Michelle Chalfant   "Happier people are more interested in the problems of the world." - Gretchen Rubin   "You have to take care of yourself.

The price of oil is the central threat to the economy right now. Surging gasoline costs crimp consumer budgets. Surging diesel costs make everything more expensive. And of course, we know there are all kinds of structural impediments to increasing supply. But the stakes are huge, particularly since the Federal Reserve has signaled its willingness to throw the economy into a recession, if that's what it takes to get inflation down. So is there anything that can be done? On this episode of the podcast, we speak with Skanda Amarnath, the Executive Director at Employ America, as well as Rory Johnston, the founder of Commodity Context and an investor at Price Street, to talk about concrete steps that can be taken to increase oil supplies and bring about price stability.
