Teen-focused pocket money, digital finance, and neo-banking apps have been all the rage in the fintech industry over the past year. New companies are springing up every month to cater to this previously untapped target market, and the core of their genesis seems to be singular: financial inclusion.

While many fintech companies cater to the adult population, as well as geographically marginalized sections of India, there are very few opportunities for teenagers to explore finance. Prior to the proliferation of teen-focused financial platforms, most of the exposure teens had to fund was through banks that allowed them to open bank accounts run mostly by parents, or physical currency.

Vineet Gupta and Mukund Raowho both have teenage children, have struggled with the existing system.

“Our children’s underage bank accounts, through which we gave them pocket money, presented multiple challenges – from openness to being able for our children to use it freely, given the restrictions on ATMs or debit cards,” says Vineet. Your story.

When the duo assessed the situation on the ground, they realized that while the addressable market (TAM) was large, there were only a handful of platforms available that catered to teens.

They put in place muvina focused teenager pocket money app for college students and teens, which aims to make students financially savvy, teach them money management skills, and remove the complexities of “finance.”

“muvin’s vision is to improve the financial literacy of India’s 200 million young people while providing them with financial products tailored to their needs,” says Mukund.

The startup raised $3 million in a pre-Series A round led by WaterBridge Ventures in January this year, after raising more than $1.5 million in seed round from HNIs nationwide.

Although the youth-focused fintech space has yet to be fully leveraged as it is still in its infancy and growing, the sub-sector has disrupted fintechs in India, capturing a market that very few address themselves. India’s fintech sector is expected to touch the market size of $150-160 billion by 2025, according to a report by MAAS.

What he does

Bengaluru-based Muvin is a downloadable app that can be used by both parents and children. Parents need to download the app, create profiles for their kids, and then give them access.

Parents can use the app to transfer spending money, set tasks, and pay upon completion of each task, and can also track their children’s expenses.

Teens using the app, on the other hand, can spend money offline and online through a physical and virtual debit card. UPI and QR based payments are available for those who do full KYC. Users can also create savings goals for wishlist items and invest money in them each month.

The startup, like most in its industry, including FamPayand junioroffers short educational videos and written content to teach teens and children about finance and the practices associated with managing money, such as saving, investing, and taxes.

Vineet says that while muvin’s target audience is the 10-24 age group, anyone can use the platform.

“We believe the educational content we offer is relevant not only to our immediate target audience, but to anyone looking to start their journey in understanding basic finance,” he says.

business model

The startup currently does not charge users anything to access the platform; instead, it makes money from interchange fees incurred by merchants for card transactions.

Fampay, arguably the biggest player in the industry right now, has an e-commerce platform tailored to its target market, namely children, which is also a source of income for the startup, aside from interchange fees.

In terms of revenue, Mukund says, “We are hitting the expected numbers,” but did not further disclose exact counts. He added that the app currently has three lakh installs, with 80,000 active wallets that have done their KYC.

In total, the application has 50,000 users. Fampay has passed one million users, while Junio ​​has around half a million.

The startup says it aims to expand to one million users over the next 12 months and may raise additional capital this year to achieve scale.

]]> World Youth Skills Day and the Nigerian Labor Market (I) Mon, 01 Aug 2022 01:10:05 +0000

The United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution in December 2014 designating July 15 as World Youth Skills Day to improve the socio-economic situation of young people and address the problems of underemployment and unemployment.

Since then, World Youth Skills Day activities have served as a forum for discussion between young people, technical and vocational education and training institutions, businesses, employers’ organizations, workers’ organizations, development partners and policy makers to also encourage the abolition of gender discrimination. .

The world celebrates World Youth Skills Day on July 15 with the theme “Transforming Youth Skills for the Future” to highlight the strategic value of equipping young people with the skills they need for employment, entrepreneurship and work.

This day focused on the crucial role that talented young people play in solving current and future global issues to provide the skills needed for self-employment.

In addition, it is easier for businesses and communities to meet the changing demands for skills that boost productivity and income levels. It also reduces the obstacles to professional integration through work-linked training while guaranteeing the recognition and certification of the skills acquired.

The acquisition of skills is one of the main pillars that helps people achieve their aspirations and provide for those who do not have the opportunity to work with public or private organizations with university degrees.

The Federal Government of Nigeria has implemented a skills acquisition program through the National Directorate of Employment (NDE). Vocational skills development, entrepreneurship development, agricultural skills training and public works programs were the four main areas of intervention that the NDE developed to create a large number of jobs for the unemployed.

The government has launched the National Youth Employment and Skills Program to encourage entrepreneurship. The program offers many opportunities to learn new skills including hairdressing, computer programming, makeup application, headwear making, fashion design, sewing, catering, appliance repair mechanical and electrical, furniture making and woodworking, tie-and-dye manufacturing and home. management. Skills acquisition is a proven method for significantly promoting economic development, reducing poverty, insurgency and crime rates, increasing the number of entrepreneurial jobs available, providing participants with experience and skills and raise their standard of living.

The government has worked tirelessly to provide young people and learners with technical and vocational skills through formal and informal channels in all states of the federation. They provide young people with the necessary tools, establishing technical colleges, polytechnics, monotechnics, vocational enterprise institutions, innovation enterprise institutions and model vocational training centers.

However, despite the awareness of World Youth Skills Day to boost self-employment and reduce unemployment in the country, Nigeria continues to experience rising unemployment and underemployment coupled with the growing population growth in the country. .

Nigeria’s population in 2020 was estimated at 206.1 million, which increased to 216.6 million in July 2022. The working-age population also maintained an upward trend. Nigeria’s working-age population grew from 116.8 million in June 2020 to over 122 million in December of the same year.

The Nigerian workforce comprises over 80 million people, of which almost 23 million people between the ages of 25 and 34 made up the majority of the labor force in 2020. The second most populous group, with almost 20 million of people, is those aged 35 to 44, and the third group is between the ages of 15-24, with nearly 17 million people in the labor force. There were about 13 million working people between the ages of 45 and 54, while people between the ages of 55 and 64 constitute more than 7 million of the entire working population.

Statistics also show that more than 300,000 young Nigerians enter the job market each month, 19% of whom are already mothers or pregnant with their first child.

Along the same lines, data from the National Bureau of Statistics shows that unemployment and underemployment rates in the country have continued to trend upwards. The unemployment rate rose to 33.3% in the fourth quarter of 2020 and the underemployment rate to 22.8%. Youth unemployment was 42.5% and youth underemployment stood at 21% in the country.

However, higher unemployment does not necessarily mean more job losses. Instead, an increase in unemployment can be caused by several factors, the loss of a current job being only one. An increase in unemployment usually indicates that more people are looking for work. This may be due to people who were not previously employed (such as students or unemployed housewives) deciding to enter the labor market and looking for work, or it may be due to people who were previously employed but are now looking for work.

Image from Deloitte: talking about this generation

There are many compelling business reasons for the hospitality industry to embrace sustainability, with no real choice in the matter, making a place more attractive to consumers is another. Making your business attractive to Gen Z job seekers might be the most important of all.

For the first time since records began, the Office for National Statistics announced that there were fewer unemployed than vacancies. Job vacancies hit a record 1.3million from February to April as unemployment continued to fall to 3.7% – the lowest level seen since 1974.

So, in the labor market, the hotel industry will now have to compete more than ever with other industrial sectors for the same people.

Most vacancies in the hospitality industry could be categorized as “entry level” and as such open to virtually anyone who wants to learn the ropes of hospitality. Most open positions will see recruitment aimed at young people, but do we speak to young people in their language. The language of sustainability and diversity?

Let’s talk about this generation

Fortunately, organizations like Deloitte have done a lot of research here, and if this is something you’re interested in, take a look at Deloitte’s report – ‘Understanding Generation Z in the Workplace’. It contains a lot of food for thought.

One of the conclusions of the authors of the report is: “Companies must demonstrate their commitment to a broader set of societal challenges such as sustainability, climate change and hunger”.

Hospitality is well placed to build on the work done over many years to emphasize to young people that they can join their teams in a sustainable workplace… Please discuss.

Big Q in the Big D: Tradition and Influence on the Dallas BBQ Scene Wed, 20 Jul 2022 09:00:00 +0000

At its core, barbecue is a study in heat and time and the transformative powers of both to turn something raw and unappetizing into something eminently desirable and sublime. Likewise, we’ve seen the Dallas barbecue scene transform over the years like a chest after an all-night cook. The Texas barbecue tradition is rooted in small towns, while big cities like Dallas were rarely considered a mecca for good barbecue.

But with the resurgence of Central Texas-style barbecue that sparked the “artisanal” barbecue revolution, the Dallas barbecue scene naturally evolved, and over the past decade or so, we’ve seen the birth of barbecue joints from the city now mentioned in the pantheon. big ones. While the town’s barbecue history may not match that of Hill Country, it’s still home to some long-running spots. These old habits, along with the restaurants that took root in the barbecue boom, influence upstart barbecue joints that are still writing their own stories before our eyes.

The old guard

During the first decade after the turn of the century, the Dallas barbecue scene was a big city melting pot. Part of that comes from the Texas roots of barbecue. If you find someone who grew up in Texas, chances are they have a barbecue restaurant in their town that was the go-to. And as a Texas native and current Observer Food writer Lauren Drewes Daniels once explained to me, “Small towns don’t eat other small town barbecue. » (Editor’s note: especially if we play football.)

Dallas is a big city, and big cities meant catering to the masses, not small towns where the famous Texas barbecue was making hay. Chains like Dickey’s, Spring Creek, or even Dallas-native Sonny Bryan’s serve barbecue that feeds the masses, but lacks artistry. That’s not to say Dallas didn’t have gems.

In 1976 John Reaves opened Big John’s Barbecue on the corner of Lemmon and Mockingbird, and after a fire in the pit room filled the restaurant with smoke, he renamed his restaurant Smokey John’s.

“Since the 1970s, the essence of who our father was and the service he provided has remained the same,” says Brent Reaves, who along with his brother Juan took over their father’s restaurant. “These intangible things are why people become loyal customers.”

In 1978, James Meshack opened the first of four eponymous barbecues in South Dallas. Meshack’s daughter Donna took over the Garland location when her father died suddenly in 1986. And in Cedars, Tennessee, Tennessee native Clarence Cohens brought his own Memphis-style barbecue influences to the Texas when he opened Baby Back Shak in the late 90s.

While spots like Smokey John’s, Meshack’s and Baby Back Shak have their history, that doesn’t mean they’re immune to change.

“We had to step up our game. Our chest process is only taking three times longer than it did 10 years ago,” says Reaves. “We tweaked some of our family recipes to create more flavor. We didn’t want to be left behind.”

These restaurants and many more were still practicing the art of barbecuing and building their own loyal following in an era before social media, when the internet was past its infancy, but was still just a toddler. Things were going to change soon enough.

The revolutionaries

It used to take years of hard work for a barbecue to have a loyal following. Then came social media. A new generation of pit masters has arrived on the scene, and what they lacked in provenance, they made up for in dedication to the way barbecue was done by the old masters. The timing was perfect, as the internet had spawned a new kind of food lover, one who shopped at farmers markets, drank craft beers and shared their discoveries on social media. The barbecue had gone viral.

The barbecue boom has swept away new joints and old ones. Pecan Lodge put Dallas on the barbecue map in 2010 with lines snaking through the Dallas Farmers Market and a nod from Texas monthly as the second-best barbecue in the state in 2013. Pecan Lodge’s start-up came after Justin and Diane Fourton quit their consulting jobs to open a barbecue catering business. As the restaurant built its reputation, the Fourtons learned of the City of Dallas’ plan to redevelop Shed 2 at the Farmers’ Market into a specialty food building. Pecan Lodge’s modest counter in Shed 2 quickly became the center of the Dallas barbecue universe. Around the time their reputations began their meteoric rise, other future Dallas barbecue legends were just in their infancy.

Cattleack Barbecue filled time during Todd David’s retirement – ​​a small warehouse catering business in Farmers Branch. Customers eventually convinced him to open for lunch one day a week. David’s BBQ was good, but he struggled to get consistent quality beef from his suppliers.

“I just wasn’t excited about big companies and the ups and downs of their products,” David recalls. His supplier told him about a ranch in central Texas raising Akaushi beef, one of four breeds known as wagyu. After getting his hands on HeartBrand’s Wagyu Beef Brisket, David knew he had found the consistent quality he was looking for.

In the Design District, Maple and Motor’s Jack Perkins have launched Slow Bone, a quality barbecue promising the masses. The barbecue’s growing popularity meant long lines and quick sales at places like Pecan Lodge and Lockhart’s. Perkins claimed to have solved the riddle and promised extended hours with no sale or sale of yesterday’s leftovers. Perkins had plenty of experience running Dallas’ Maple & Motor burger joint, but the foray into barbecue was unfamiliar territory for the restaurateur. Shortly after opening, Perkins hired longtime Dallas chef Jeffrey Hobbs to bring a chef’s sensibility to the barbecue world.

And in Fort Worth, Travis Heim had started making pop-ups to scratch his meat-smoking itch, which turned into the Heim Barbecue food truck in 2015. The burnt ends of the chest were already considered a bite of barbecue nirvana, but Heim turned the burnt end on its head when he started drying pork belly seasoning cubes and then sautéing them in his smoker. Heim’s bacon-scorched ends became the talk of the town, and Heim’s success led to a Dallas location in 2020.

And after

Even though we believe that the popularity of barbecue could one day peak, we have given up on predicting when that will happen. New entrants enter the fray with regularity, influenced by the successes of their predecessors as well as the legendary names in the trade. But with a cuisine so steeped in tradition, the question becomes how to stand out.

For some, like Kris Manning’s Smokey Joe’s BBQ, it meant relearning everything he knew about barbecuing after buying his father’s restaurant in 2013. Manning added a pair of quirky new smokers to the restaurant, then painfully removed the old steel and brick smoker his father had built. in 1985.

“They kept starting fires,” Manning said, after realizing he couldn’t risk his restaurant because of sentimentality. While aware of his clientele who loved his father’s barbecue, Manning knew he would need to evolve to stay relevant.

“Growing up, I used to go to my dad’s restaurant and I would never eat at any other barbecue places,” Manning told us in 2020. is going to different barbecue places.” Manning’s success has come from keeping his longtime customers happy while cooking up a barbecue that has fans all over the area raving.

For other newcomers, barbecue mixes with other cultures and cuisines with great results. In 2018, Zavala’s BBQ in Grand Prairie taught us that beef brisket can still be stellar when served with tortillas and its magic green salsa. Blending Zavala’s Hispanic heritage with typical Texas cuisine yields impressive results. And in East Dallas, Loro brings a touch of Asia to Texas thanks to chefs Tyson Cole of Uchi and Aaron Franklin of Franklin Barbecue. Led by masters of their respective cuisines, Loro blends two cooking styles in new and imaginative ways.

While we are certainly students of tradition when it comes to Texas barbecue, the history of the kitchen, itself a blend of traditions and cultures, is something we will always respect, especially when a barbecue shows that level of pride on the menu. . But it’s hard to ignore where barbecue is heading, as even more fusion of cultures and cuisines produces barbecue that’s still top-notch with unique twists that deliver something new and exciting. Texas is a big state, and at our big barbecue table, we’re thrilled when old-school and new-school joints have a seat to share their stories.
