Most business startups end badly. While the number of new businesses created in the UK in 2016 – 414,000 – looks impressive at first, it is less so when set against the number that failed that same year: 328,000. Failure has always been the hallmark of entrepreneurship – only around 50% of businesses survive their first five years. And not only are the chances of survival slim, but there is evidence that on average business owners earn less than if they had remained as someone else’s employee. They also work substantially longer hours than their counterparts in paid employment. So… This story continues at The Next Web

Rivian coached employees into sharing trade secrets from their time at Tesla, according to a new lawsuit.
Tesla says at least six former employees, and probably more, divulged confidential information in their new jobs at the competitor.
Rivian denies the accusations, saying the alleged actions are "counter to Rivian's culture, ethos and corporate policies."

Tesla has accused the upstart electric vehicle firm Rivian of stealing highly confidential trade secrets through newly hired workers.
In a lawsuit filed last week in California, Elon Musk's electric automaker accused the Amazon-backed startup and four of its employees of misappropriating the trade secrets that violate the former employees' non-disclosure agreements.
"Rivian instructed one recently departing Tesla employee about the types of Tesla confidential information that Rivian needs," Tesla's complaint alleges. "Both Rivian and the employee knew full well that taking such information would violate the employee's non-disclosure obligations to Tesla. Nonetheless, the employee expropriated for Rivian the exact information Rivian sought — highly sensitive, trade secret information that would give Rivian huge competitive advantage."
Tesla says it caught the culprits "using recently acquired sophisticated electronic security monitoring tools," and that it expects more employees to be named in the suit as it discovers more instances of theft. In total, Tesla says 178 former employees have joined Rivian.
Rivian and the four specific employees named in the suit did not immediately return requests for comment on the allegations. In a statement to Bloomberg, the company said the alleged actions are "counter to Rivian's culture, ethos and corporate policies."
According to Bloomberg, Tesla has previously filed lawsuits against China's Xpeng Motors and self-driving car startup Zoox, which recently struck a deal to be acquired by Amazon.
Earlier this month, Rivian closed another major funding round of $2.5 billion from backers including Amazon, which plans to eventually use its vehicles in its delivery fleet. To date, the company — which has yet to launch a production vehicle — has raised $6 billion with no valuation attached.

Many of us use Google News each day as a fast and easy way to stay on top of current events. Google doesn't do its own original reporting — instead, it aggregates news from a broad array of sources. You can take advantage of that to teach Google what kind of news you want more (and less) of.
Specifically, Google lets you "follow" news topics (like world news and technology news), news sources (like Business Insider) and locations (like your home city or other cities). To get started, open Google News in a web browser or in the Google News app – the process is almost identical no matter how you get your news.
How to follow topics on Google News
If you're using Google News in a browser, click one of the topics in the navigation pane on the left side of the screen. When that topic page opens, click "Follow" at the top right of the screen, beside the category name.
On either the browser or mobile app, there are many additional topics you can follow. To find them, search for a subject using the search box at the top of the page. If a topic exists for your search term, it'll appear at the top of the page. Click "Follow" in the web page or the star if you're using the mobile app.
How to follow a news source on Google News
If you want to see more news stories from a particular news source, you can follow it. There are two ways to do this.
You can follow a news source directly from an article in your Google News feed. Under the article headline on the feed page, click the three-dot menu. If you are not already following this news source, you'll see an option to "Go to" the publication's page. Select that option. Then, on the Google News page for that news source, select "Follow" or the star at the top of the page.
You can also search for the news source directly. In the search tool at the top of the page, search for the publication. Select the publication and click "Follow" or the star at the top of the page. If you're using the mobile app, you can even follow a publication directly from the drop-down menu from the search box.
How to follow a location on Google News
To follow a city in Google News, search for it using the search tool at the top of the page and then choose "Follow" or the star when you see the location you want.
How to unfollow on Google News
It's easy to unfollow any topic, publication, or location.
1. Click "Following" (it's in the navigation pane in a browser or at the bottom of the screen in the mobile app). You'll see all the sources you are following, divided by category.
2. Click the three dot menu beside the item you want to unfollow.
3. Click "Remove from library" or "Stop following this source."
