Islands of Data - connected, working together
Mark Geene, CEO & Founder, Cloud Elementsenclosure-voice 1699_ 3/30/15 - As the C-Level @ A Mile High Live Auction begins, we are talking with Mark Geene, Founder & CEO of Cloud Elements. Since our last visit with Mark, a lot has happened. Mark tells us they've raised their first round of venture capital, added about 30 people to their company and moved into a new space down near Coors Field, in the building called Industry - we're growing like crazy, and about a few hundred customers later. We are making it easier to make all the cloud services and applications that companies use, to work together. The Internet of Things is just a huge opportunity we're engaging in, where everything from street lamps to toothbrushes to appliances have APIs - but they don't work together. We help them all work together. And we help developers build applications and move data from all those devices and much more easily than they can do writing them individually.

Evan Eakin, Vice President, Information Technology, Red Robin Gourmet Burgers Business transformation teams focus
enclosure-voice 1701_ 3/30/15 - Evan Eakin is Red Robin Gourmet Burgers vice president of information technology. As part of that, "we're interested in driving change at Red Robin. I certainly own the technology part of that. Friends and colleagues in our Business Transformation Group focus on program management. And then also in our Operations Services arm, which in our business is about driving change in our restaurants. We have 400 corporate restaurants, across about 44 states in the U.S. and Canada, with about 28,000 team members that we've got to be able to reach. I can do that through technology but often that's not good enough if I don't have the change enablement and the change management. That's really what our three teams focus on, business transformation at Red Robin." Larry asked how long it takes to drive these changes through an organization like this. "Depending on the type of change" says Evan, "if you've got a large software package…"

It's a lot more like dating than going to a bank
Ari Newman, Partner, Techstars Venturesenclosure-voice 1695_ 3/23/15 - Back in 2007 he founded Filterbox, a Techstars success story. Today Ari Newman is a partner at Techstars Ventures... "It's been amazing to see how Techstars has grown and evolved and delivered value around the world. And it's great to be part of the team here." Interesting, looking back, Larry took Brad Feld's recommendation to interview David Cohen and David Brown, Techstars cofounders, before they actually launched. Brad naturally recognized the potential, and the rest is history. Now Ari tells us, he is a partner in Techstars Ventures, which is a seed and Series A venture fund and so, "I spend my time talking to entrepreneurs, looking at business and investment opportunities, and helping companies every day. I am essentially a VC. So, we help the companies by giving them capital, we often take board seats or act as advisors. and the truth is we try to be helpful to every Techstars company whether..."

Larry Nelson, interview with Bill Heuston, Director of Sales, Viawest CIOs asking for hi bred solution
enclosure-voice 1698_ 3/30/15 - We are talking with Bill Heuston, Director of Sales at Viawest. Bill has been with Viawest for the past 14 years and says it has been a wonderful journey. "… when I started it was like $6M in revenue and now we're over $200M in revenue. The next goal is to be a $500M-a-year-company..." Larry asked Bill what he's seeing in this high, almost frenetic growth, industry. "The enterprise space, the CIO is asking for highbred solutions. So, there are so many de fragmented cloud options with Amazon and Azure and Rackspace. But we're seeing a consistent message coming from the CIO that they want a single data operator that can provide all the different facets of their compute needs. Whether it be inexpensive archiving or backup like an Amazon or whether it be a Microsoft SharePoint application… and they want to have a company like Viawest come to the table and offer a solution that can provide all those things with one solution, one engineer, one support number to call…"

CIO, Helping homeless pets… One Vet at a time
Teri Angel Burley, CIO, Envision Radiologyenclosure-voice 1700_ 3/30/15 - Here at C-Level @ A Mile High, we met, Teri Angel Burley, officially representing Budget Management Institute where she is a volunteer teaching others how to be project managers. Teri helps with the certification program - and she also helps veterans to become project managers as well as being acclimated back to civilian life . Teri, also a veteran said, "I try to keep busy in my off-time, and I'm all about giving back time. I like to volunteer and I'm on lots of boards, and I look forward to getting further involved with C-Level" Teri is the new CIO at Envision Radiology. On a personal level Teri loves to create jewelry and, she does dog rescue. So she creates jewelry to sell [Angel Arms Jewelry] and 100% of those proceeds go to 'Pets for Vets'. Teri takes in special needs dogs, dogs that are disabled, and rehabs them either for being adopted or going to a vet. If a dog has too many medical needs, Teri keeps them. The jewelry sold is to either sponsor veterans or a pet that can be matched with a veteran for PTSD. So, that's what she does for fun, "Helping homeless pets… One Vet and one Pet at a time."

Larry asked him about the size and growth of the event. Steven said, "We used to laugh and say, how big can C-Level get. Now it's become the biggest event in the state. and it's not just a technology event. It's the biggest business event for those leaders in the State of Colorado that are driving innovation and technology. And quite frankly, the business and economy of Colorado." Steven Foster is also the Chief Operating Officer for GTRI, "...a $350M infrastructure company founded by a couple of guys here in town about 15 years ago and I've been blessed to be on their board of directors and now running the company for the two founders." Larry asked Steven about the future, given the difficulties we've been through in the past decade. The challenge? "It's always the same challenge..." Listen for more...
