Plusieurs mois de compétition et 100 000 Dirhams à la clé

Startup Cup Maroc est une compétition qui dure plusieurs mois pendant lesquels ont lieu plusieurs sessions de mentoring et d’évaluation des startups participantes par des entrepreneurs, des experts et des investisseurs nationaux et internationaux. Après la sélection des semi-finalistes puis des finalistes de la compétition, la meilleure startup est déclarée championne du Maroc et remporte un prix de 100.000 DH ainsi que plusieurs « surprises ».

Pourquoi participer?

StartUpCup est un événement mené localement avec des processus communs aux 65 pays organisateurs basé sur une approche communautaire novatrice conçue pour accroître la qualité et la quantité des entrepreneurs. Elle permet ainsi aux startups sélectionnées de se mettre en compétition tout en profitant d’un mentoring proactif afin de modifier et d’ajuster les hypothèses de leur business model pour passer à l’étape supérieure.

Les entrepreneurs de StartUpCup sont en effet accompagnés et conseillés tout au long de la compétition pour construire et partager une histoire viable d’un business model attractif ; mettre en valeur la façon dont leur produit/service répond à un besoin ou résout un problème ; définir le marché cible de manière claire; développer un modèle financier solide qui fonctionne en tandem avec le business model.

Qui peut participer?

Tout Marocain ou résident au Maroc de plus de 18 ans, porteur d’une idée originale ou créateur d’une startup de moins de 3 ans peut participer à la compétition. L’objectif de StartUp Cup Maroc étant la promotion de l’entreprenariat à travers une compétition de business model ouvert à tout type d’idées.

1ère étape : la sélection des 30 startups participantes (semi-finalistes)

Au moment du lancement de la compétition, 165 candidatures ont été soumissionnées, des différentes villes du Maroc mais aussi d’autres pays, d’Algérie, de France, d’Afghanistan, de Dubai, d’Egypte ou des Etats Unis. Les candidats étaient de profils très variés dont 45% de professionnels avec en moyenne 7 ans d’expérience et 20% de femmes.

« Le choix des 30 startups a été extrêmement difficile vu la qualité des business model  soumissionnés » Déclare Naoufal Chama, Président StartUp Maroc.

« L’évaluation des candidatures a été basée sur trois critères principaux :

Le business Model, explore-t-il une réelle opportunité pour créer de la valeur ? Est-il bien structuré et a t’il le potentiel de générer du revenu ? Le marché et clients cibles sont-ils bien identifiés ? L’idée de business est-elle innovante ?,

L’exécution : y a-t-il un prototype fonctionnel, y a-t-il des actions entreprises pour atteindre et sécuriser des clients ?

Et la « Scalabilty », l’idée de business ne doit pas être limité à un marché local, au minimum le marché national doit être ciblé, idéalement la startup doit avoir le potentiel de se déployer globalement. »

2ème étape : Plusieurs séances de mentoring et de coaching

Pendant plus de 8 mois, les 30 startups sélectionnées ont participées à un programme d’accompagnement et de mentoring continu. Les sessions d’accompagnement été sous forme de workshops sur les aspects clés du Business Model avec traitement d’étude de cas parmi les projets sélectionnés. Il s’agissait de sessions de mentoring collectives ou individuelles.

Des étapes clés et des livrables ont été définis pour suivre l’avancement des projets et préparer la sélection des finalistes par les membres du jury.

L’objectif était de connecter les entrepreneurs tout au long de cette période avec des mentors nationaux et internationaux qui les ont accompagnés sur chaque aspect de leur business model, pour challenger leurs hypothèses, développer leurs compétences, mieux comprendre leur business et canaliser leurs efforts vers l’essentiel.

3ème étape : la sélection des 7 startups finalistes

Après plusieurs séances de mentoring et de coaching, la sélection des finalistes s’est faite en décembre 2014. En effet, après une première séance de pitchs, ce sont 7 startups finalistes, sélectionnées par un jury d’experts, qui sont toujours en lice pour les 100 000 Dirhams.

Les 7 startups finalistes sont :

Beginners Guide to Fetish Golf clubs

Beginners Guide to Fetish Golf clubs

No one comes out of the womb latex dressed and armed with a mix; no matter how well versed in the art of fetish some could possibly be, they all had to start somewhere!

Whether you’ re merely curious to catch a glimpse of what goes on inside these popular kinky nightclubs, or you’ re actually interested in dabbling in the fetish scene, coming into a fetish club initially can be a little intimidating.

But never fear – all you need is a great outfit, an open mind and some basic expertise to take your first actions into the cult of fetish clubs with ease. The initial two are simple enough to obtain, and for the third we’ empieza got your back; here’ s our what, in which and how guide to get you from curious to club…

What may i expect from the UK fetish scene?
fetish-girl-1

You may actually have preconceptions about the fetish scene, BDSM and bondage; the media coupled with latest book and film launches (i. e. Fifty Gradation of Grey) has provided a glimpse into this world, on the other hand this ‘ glimpse’ probably isn’ t all that appropriate.

The best way to find out about fetish is to actually move and experience it for your self; and where better to do than in one of the many fun, tranquil clubs where drinks circulation freely and sexual flexibility without judgement is encouraged?!

Participants in the fetish scene often love to talk about their passion, so in the event that you’ re curious easily ask; most will spend ample time answering this question and discussing their personal experiences.

What is a fetish club like inside, and how do I choose one to go to?
Sexy dominatrix, hands on ass in handcuffs, closeup

Well, that completely depends on the team you choose to go to – and a plethora of kinky options! If you’ re just starting out though, it’ s probably smart to start out at one of the larger clubs so you can get a feel for the area and see as much of the world as is possible – that way you can see exactly what attracts you and to fit in.

Torture Garden, London’ s most famous fetish club, has everything a bondage virgin would ever be able to dream of; decked out with poles to dance on, a dungeon, dancefloors, playrooms and performances by seasoned professionals, this is the ultimate in adult night life.

The attendees are also famously friendly, eclectic and out bound, meaning you’ re very likely to feel at ease and find fellow fetish-philes to dance/play/fondle the night away with.

In case you have a particular theme in mind, or some section of kink you’ re dying to explore, then it’ s easy to look for styled nights and find a tavern which caters for specific preferences. For example , some clubs could be more focussed on the social side of performances and dancing with a side of hot play if you’ re feeling it, whilst other folks centralise the entire night surrounding the naughty dungeon experience.

Some clubs will be for swingers, others cater for solely females/males, and some also require you come in a pair. The best way to find out which golf clubs are for you is to read online; their website content and galleries will allow you to quickly assess if they’ re the club you wish to take the plunge with!

Did you merely say gallery?! No photos, please!
Don’ t worry, clubs are courteous and personal cameras aren’t allowed. Some clubs give special rooms where professional photography takes place to serve as a moment of your night.

Can I go to a fetish club alone?
fetish-club

Usually, first time clubbers don’ capital t have many like-minded mates to look along to the club events with – but this kind of isn’ t a problem. Certainly, some clubs have a no singles rule, although there are plenty which are singles friendly (just check out their websites to find out their admissions policy).

These singles friendly club nights are actually a great way to introduce yourself to the fetish scene, as long as you get in with the right attitude. You’ ve made it as far as the club sets website and now you’ re also in the club, so use the opportunity! Talk to people and be social; usually telling someone something along the lines of ‘ hi there, my name is …. and it’ s my first time within a fetish club’ is a great approach to make yourself a fetish good friend.

What’ ersus the dress code?!

In case you hadn’ t noticed, fetish clubs are probably as much about the outfit as they are about the sex! So much so, that those who haven’ big t made an effort will level blank be refused admittance to the club.

Don’ t panic even though! Dressing up for the occasion is all part of the fun, and will add hugely to your whole fetish club night knowledge. The club’ s internet site is a great source of dress code information; if they are holding a particular night then expect things such as ‘ come as an animal’, but if it’ s simply a regular club night the normal attire of choice is ‘ Fetish Dress’.

This can be anything from check out toe rubber, skin-tight acrylic or nude except for some fishnet tights. Fur, shoelace, PVC, Lycra and spandex may also feature.

You can wear as much or as little as you like, as long as you’ re in line with the themes and components suggested by your club of choice. Be aware though – even though the majority of clubs allow total nudity some clubs don’ t – be sure to check before leaving the house!

If you’ re still unsure exactly what to embellish, look to the clubs museums and galleries for inspiration or basic google ‘ female/male fetish clothing’ in order to view outfits which are fetish friendly.

What exactly ‘ goes down’ (pardon the pun) at a fetish golf club?
fetish-dungeon

Again, this depends on the club you attend. Generally though, expect plenty of dancing, drinking and socialising, much like any normal club.

There are a few irregularities you could witness, though; it’ t not unusual to see serves of domination or submissions happening around you, including fresh, bondage and general sadomasochism. Clubbers could be doing anything at all for whipping each other to walking across each other’ s backs to worshiping feet – so preserve an open mind!

In the play rooms and dungeons there will likely be products in use such as paddles, dental practitioner chairs and ball gags – you can be involved in the ‘ play’ side of things as much or as little as you wish to. Don’ t get surprised to see couples dogging, engaging in sexual acts or orgies – fetish clubs undoubtedly are a place where you can explore the sexuality and feel at ease for being yourself and carry out your fantasies.

Don’ testosterone levels drink too much
Although most clubbers are friendly and respectful, a few may not know when they are going too far, so it’ s far better to stay sober enough to understand what is going on around you and be able to evidently communicate your wishes and intentions. You don’ testosterone levels want to wake up with regrets, after all.

Know your boundaries
No matter how relaxed and liberal you are, there exists a difference between enjoying the fetish scene and becoming taken advantage of; being groped and ‘ enjoying consensual sexual play’ are two very different things. Your fetish club experience should be a great Wichsen all-round positive one, and you should never do anything you feel unpleasant with; know your privileges and don’ t be afraid to say how you feel.

Ease yourself in
If it’ s i9000 your first time at a fetish club, then there really is no need to rush – get started with slow! Try one of the greater clubs and don’ t feel the need to participate without delay – just watching provide you with a good idea of what goes on and what you do and don’ capital t feel comfortable doing. Avoid the dungeon/play rooms until you understand the scene and are able to clearly communicate your desires and limitations.

Golf club ideas for Bondage Virgins:
Torture Garden
The most famous fetish tavern in the UK, Torture Garden frequently puts on events, shows and performances. The venue is often large to meet the also larger demand, and the group is fun, friendly and relaxed, making it a great place for beginners.

Dance floors playing heavy dance music are always filled with enthusiastic clubbers, and are stored separate from the heavier components of a fetish club (full frontal nudity, playrooms and dungeons) making this a great fetish venue with something for anyone, no matter your level of experience.

Festival of Sins at the Purple Turtle Camden
A great place to start for first timers, this event bans all nudity and is also more lenient with the costume code – meaning the ones that don’ t wish to use full on skin tight acrylic are able to attend! Some argue that Festival of Sins can’ t be classed like a proper ‘ fetish club’, but we think it’ s i9000 a great way to ease yourself in, and a fun, kinky night out.

Club Antichrist
This is one of the heaviest fetish clubs around, hence not necessarily recommended to get beginners. Operating a extremely pleased no censorship policy, nudity is a regular occurrence and tissues, sweets and condoms are all handed out free. If you wish to try something a bit more hard-core and less ‘ mainstream’, then Club Antichrist just might be the club for you. But be warned – it’ s not for the weak hearted.

Golf club Rub
Substantially like Torture Garden, Membership Rub is renowned for its friendly, eclectic crowd; this team has something for everyone with ample dancefloors, play bedrooms, dungeons and dens. Every event is themed, so if you love dressing up, this one’ s for you!

Pedestal
This fetish club has a alternatively specific clientele – specifically dominant women and submissive men. Singles are welcome, although there are strict rules; guys are required to dress as slaves and worship the female customers down on their knees. This kind of club is a more serious fetish event and therefore more focussed on the goal on the concept of dom/sub interactions than dancing, drinking and celebration. If you’ re a lady who revels inside the idea of being worshipped, or possibly a guy who loves to serve then be sure to give Pedestal a visit!

It’s dangerous to operate the studio if you want to remain anonymous

It’s dangerous to operate the studio if you want to remain anonymous

According to the girl, it’ s not difficult to find many of these a job – ads happen to be published on large hiring resources, for example , on HeadHunter, but are “ disguised” as more ordinary vacancies. The woman herself came to interview intended for the post of officer of the studio, where your woman was informed of a few understatement in the text from the announcement. “ You will need to speak with foreigners, to flirt. You are going to just sit in front of the camera and talk, ” Impegno recalls her interview, “ I have already heard about such a job, and then I was offered it myself. I was scared and ran away, because at that time I could not imagine personally at this work. It appeared to me that only the most recent people, who, so to speak, were regrettable in life, can do this. ”

Nevertheless, the girl did not stop searching for work: that before, she moved away from her parents and the question of financial independence arose. Full-time studies did not allow her to search for a full-time job, therefore the choice consisted of options meant for part-time work. “ Since it turned out, finding a job without knowledge is not so easy, therefore i had to go to promoters — hand out flyers, promotional items, ” says Lena, “ somehow I went to work to be a cashier, but honestly, I just can’ t stand that relations from the authorities to subordinates, which by almost all appearance demonstrates that this individual does not give a shit about who you are. And everywhere it is – at school, at work. All over the place you need to either lick someone’ s ass, or have a silver spoon in your own. On the whole, there was not enough money, I had to solve something, and I discovered another announcement about the search for a promotional model. That led me back to the webcam studio. ”

This time, Lena did not refuse to work as a livecam model and answered together with the offer to “try”. That were there to work in the “ studio” – a multi-room apartment in a residential construction, converted to the needs from the tenant. One of the premises is definitely occupied by the “ office”, in which the administrator and other personnel work, and the rest of the rooms are the filming rooms, coming from where the webcam broadcast is certainly conducted. “ Each bedroom has a bed or lounge, a lot of lighting equipment, a computer, a television display screen and everything that may be wanted, ” the girl says.

The image of a home girl
To begin with, the new model is shot in a photo shoot – honest photos are uploaded to profiles on several popular webcam resources. According to Lena, the model itself does not participate in this “ organizational” work: the studio administrators come up with a fictitious English name, they fill out personal data – age, elevation, weight, interests, sexual choices – and write a little “ biographical” eyeliner. Generally speaking, this is an unsophisticated text on the topic of intimate fantasies. Lena describes the employment process briefly: “ She provided passport data, signed a contract for several a few months. The condition is to work at least a certain number of hours weekly. It suited me totally, the night shifts closed this kind of schedule. ”

However , even when the unit begins to correspond independently and remains in the room alone, facilitators still keep an eye on her. “ They read all the letters and look through cameras what is happening in the room. There are certain rules — I can’ t discuss personal information about myself, information regarding work, go into personal communication, and so on – they’ ll fine or fire me personally for this, ” says Lena, “ You can’ big t even use a smartphone when you are in free chat. ”

Most of the clientele are Americans, respectively, time of the highest earnings comes on the evening hours in the united states. “ They just come from work and immediately reach us, ” says Impegno, “ Most often, guys who want to see everything for free sit in the chat. They say, show your bum, and I’ ll right away go to private. Many girls have been completely doing this for the first time, and I, too, was being led. ”

“ Once a man told me that if I pull off my T-shirt, he will immediately go to private immediately and without question. I asked him — do you promise? He promised. I took off my Tee shirt, jersey and there was another within it. But he maintained his word ”

Lena prefers her own clothes, although the facility provides models with “ thematic” outfits: for example , the uniform of a nurse or perhaps schoolgirl. “ I did not prefer to feel like an companion girl, I immediately waived. I’ m most comfortable in shorts and a Shirt, especially since it creates such a homely look, much like it’ s your girl near the camera, ” the woman argues, “ All these clothing can only help those young ladies who have very unattractive looks. And I can wear no more than stockings if someone desires to. The main thing that a person is certainly interested in is the work of providing the service, in the end. ”

Income from five sites — 15%
Lena provides services simultaneously about five sites: you have to screen activity in several chats and keep several dialogs at once. “ On some sites it is shown how much money the client has on the account, and on some – not. The bottom line all the same should be to interest a solvent interlocutor, although I don’ capital t always like it, ” says Lena. “ Sometimes it’ s even disgusting and I want it to end quickly. Let me not specifically extend anything in order to earn more money. ”

Lena’ s money is about 15% of the quantity that the client leaves on the webpage. 70% is taken by the website itself, where the broadcast is being conducted, and of the remaining 30%, the studio takes 50 %. On average, the cost of a private talk is for a client from 2 to 5 dollars per minute. “ As you can see, not so many livecam models earn. You can maximize income if the number of frequent customers grows, that is, in the event you start a fan club, ” the girl says, “ consequently, you need to communicate more in free chat rooms. Many generally come and just talk, because they are really interested. It is necessary to speak with a person, to desire him, then he will come again. ”

Private chat, which, in fact , brings revenue to the version and studio, is also the work of attracting and keeping the client. “ There are many of these privates when the guys say – come on, undress as quickly as possible. Sometimes they ask that she start to undress best suited in the free chat, so that she is already private with no clothes, ” Lena clarifies. “ I don’ testosterone levels even pay attention to such guests. ”

Blackmail and other vicissitudes
Often , privates are held in cam-to-cam mode, when the web cam is also turned on the visitor’s computer. Lena knows that the studio records such privates for subsequent “resale” about webcam resources, but there is no image of the interlocutor on them. Lena did not hear about instances of distribution of ads depicting customers or all their direct blackmail, despite the fact that such stories are discussed on the network from time to time.

In the studio, they often talk about the opposite – blackmailing products. “ Working in the business is dangerous if you want to keep anonymous. I know the story once videos of one model had been recorded and sent to her boyfriend, threatened to send to parents, ” Lena complains, “ They can also be blackmailed upon dismissal when the deal expires. What to do with this is not very clear. ” Model accounts upon webcam resources are inserted according to the passport data from the models themselves – this can be the verification procedure, but companies do not always delete accounts with a good client base after the unit is fired. “It’s outlawed. They just put one other model in there – you’ll certainly be surprised how girls can look like each other, ” Impegno explains. “ Money is definitely transferred to cards that are likewise wound up with these given, but they are stored in the studio room itself. We are paid in cash in envelopes. ”

“ Let it end up being my social mission – I want to warn the girls who work or are going to start working in the studios: they can blackmail you, so be careful when providing your data”

“ Now I will not consider working as a web cam model something shameful, gender is a part of life and i also like it, but we do not stay in the Soviet Union. But if you work in the web cam business, it’ s preferable to do it yourself, so that the studio would not select interest and sticks with its schedule, rules, fees and stories like blackmail, ” says Lena, “ they can be fired for misconduct without paying salaries. One acquaintance of the girl corresponded with a client from Germany, then they even met and had a good time together, she only received off with a fine of one hundred or two hundred us dollars. Could be worse”.

Unusual fantasies and “dirty daddies”
After expiration of the contract together with the studio, Lena does not banish that he will continue to make this happen work, but on his own. “ After deleting the accounts, you can’ t save again for another six months, but you can start working for yourself. It’ s only necessary to invest in the apartment – to put light on, to buy a camera, to make decor, to carry out a photo shoot, ” the woman shares, “ I can’ t say that I’ meters directly proud of this job and I want to tell everyone about it, but now I don’ t see anything wrong with that to receive compliments from males. This is quite nice. I possess generally had a low self esteem for a long time, but now I understand myself somehow better. ”

“ However , I do not really understand the clients. What is the point of paying money for webcams if you possibly could just watch porn, ” Lena wonders. “ In particular those who ask to start tinkering faster and do not really carry any profit. ”

Clients with unusual fantasies or requests are remembered for a long time, says Lena. “ I immediately reject any ugly requests, for example , I do not practice anal sex. Although I can mimic, and you will be surprised how many things girls can imitate, ” she shares, “ Of course, if they want something unusual, nevertheless acceptable, I’ m just for it. There are quite weird cases: one guy suggested looking at how he will do a blowjob to himself. Others ask me to humiliate myself, nonetheless I am not very good at doing this. ”

“ Often there are interactions with“ dirty daddies ”, but among them come across great people with whom you can go over politics or just chat about whatever. The main thing is that they come back to discuss later, ” says Ardore, “ Sometimes it’ ersus even a shame when a person from the “ permanent” ceases to come to you and switches to another model. I think that online sex with the same female is just annoying. ”

“ One gentleman came and says that for the first time on this site. I say, let’ s show you what’s what here. We talked pertaining to an hour or two about anything — beer, fishing, some other minor things, ” Lena says. “ And then he explained that I look so youthful that he’ s also ashamed to talk to me on webcams- site. I told him “ why not” and started undressing, but he just left the talk. Sometimes it happens”.

“ Some talk about spouse and children or personal problems, but I seem to act as a psychologist and wonder why he cannot talk about this with his wife”

“ I do not hate my work. All young ladies have problems with self-esteem, believe me, and it is very important to somehow increase it. But sometimes it can become a routine, ” says Lena, “ although My spouse and i don’ t work such as a machine. This is not some kind of electronic prostitution, because no one obliges me or forces me to do what I do not prefer. If someone told me, let’ s take off your clothes, that doesn’ t mean that I’ ll do that. ”

Solid psychology
Sitting on the other side from the monitor, the webcam style feels secure and free of obligations, says Lena. In her opinion, some products, in pursuit of profit, fulfill any kind of whims of customers without fail, nonetheless she does not attribute himself to such ones. “ If our communication did not go smoothly, then I just simply will not continue it. It occurs that there is not enough money in addition to to make some compromise with yourself, but within a reasonable volume, ” says Lena, “ The most interesting thing is the fact even if a person came for sex, you can set him up to talk and find out what he’ s going on in the head what his danger is and discuss them. ”

“ We have to learn how to embody the ideal for any man. Be smart, fabulous, do not drip on the human brain, but maintain a dialogue. After all, who usually comes? Old married men, who had been bullied by everything inside the family, and they just want to plunge into flirting, into children, ” says Lena, “ And all this is one stable psychology. In general, I try first of all to be a good conversationalist and understand what exactly this person needs. ”

“ I do not consider such talk hypocrisy or deception. In real life, any kind of acquaintance with men, some way, leads to sex, girls will often be looked at as meat – in nightclubs, for example. But right here, at least, no one is usually bothering me without my own consent. In ordinary existence, men have offended me more than once simply because I am sluggish. ”

Lena believes that virtual intimacy helps clients increase their self-pride and feel better. “ Anybody wants to hear praise or compliments addressed to him, it doesn’ t subject if he is a man or a woman, ” she explained. “ There are, of course , other ways to amuse vanity. I like it when they praise my own creativity. ”

“ It’s like in a rock concert: you are kept in the masses, but if someone moves side by side, then you start to fall, you will see an imbalance. Likewise, in every area of your life, you need to be praised and have some kind of talent, so that there is support from all sides, ” says Lena. “ Now I definitely don’ t have individual attention, but it has become considerably more difficult to have honest relationships. Even if you tell a person where you work and what you are, you still will not be able to fully surrender to him. You tell him that you love, then at work you say the same words to absolutely strangers. Often I don’ t also want sex. ”

“ A good marriage with a man who sees that his girlfriend works as a livecam model seems impossible in my experience. ”

“ In a relationship, guys are constantly trying to control the woman, to impose, forbid, enable her, ” says Impegno, “ therefore , with such work, everything becomes much more complicated. But the work itself is just an attraction with control, like a computer game with dialogs, although sometimes, on the contrary, the attraction becomes unrestrainable and maneuvers, it turns out much more interesting. This is a chance for consumers to try something new that will never happen to them in real life. ”

“ Probably, the livecam business will end on the day that GTA with VR technologies comes out, where you can fully sleep with a prostitute, ” the girl laughs, “ But in general, technologies sink into this business normally. You can now already remotely control the vibrators of the models. It would be cool to live up to virtual sex with all the sensors, so that it was like real, but without notice you can disconnect if something went wrong. ”
