Lt. Col. 
        Edward Vaughan, USAF Relentless execution, that's what it takes
enclosure-voice 950_ 1/11/11 - Imagine 50 days in Antarctica, what would it be like? Larry talked with Lt. Col. Edward Vaughan, USAF, who is working with the Joint Task Force Support Forces Antarctica (you may be more familiar with the name "Operation Deep Freeze"), this is the military's mission to support the National Science Foundation's objectives in Antarctica. As Ed explains, the entrepreneurial and business implications are awesome. Before this interview Larry had heard so much about Lt. Col. Edward Vaughan, the awards he'd won, different things he' done etc., and in his research, Larry decided to check Wikipedia - under disruptive solutions process Ed is right there in the first paragraph. Ed said, "Yes. The military is obviously a big bureaucracy, but it has missions to perform around the world that are, in my opinion, entrepreneurial." He goes on to explain, "The disruptive solutions process is the way that we go about tapping into that entrepreneurial spirit ... And solving problems in a very commonsense way, and in other cases, leveraging technology that we have, that we didn't have before. At the end of the day the goal is that we are more effective." Larry points out that the US DOD presented the Entrepreneurial Approach for Safety Award to Ed. and he was inducted into the US Air Force Safety Hall of Fame, sighting some of these entrepreneurial approaches. "Awards like that" Ed said, "while I'm honored to receive those, what they do is sort of validate this approach, that there is room for innovation inside a bureaucracy." Ed was very involved in helping pilots see and avoid collisions. Mid air collisions are obviously devastating, there's loss of life, tremendous loss of property. With military planes, especially fighter jets, the pilots have the option of ejecting. Ed also helped develop, is the Wingman Program. In this case it was suicide among military members. The DOD does a fantastic job...listen, there's much more...

Raising money and building a team; Crash Course
Jason Mendelson, Foundry Group, Crash Course - NVC 
    - Silicon Flatirons

enclosure-voice777_ 1/11/11 - This CU New Venture Challenge Crash Course addresses core elements of building a business: including a discussion of how to build a team, how to identify and use mentors, and selecting and refining an idea. Brad Bernthal, Associate Clinical Professor of Law, CU Law School, and Entrepreneurship Initiative Director, Silicon Flatirons Center interviewed Jason Mendelson a co-founder and Managing Director with the Foundry Group, a Boulder-based venture capital fund with over $225 million under management. Jason went unto emphasize, "Build a great team. Great teams succeed, poor teams always fail. Find mentors and advisors, this is a great town, it's mentor town USA. Engage these mentors, if you have an interesting idea and you're cool to work with we'll keep engaged and most of us aren't looking for anything in return, it's just the right thing to do. But that goes to another point, don't get taken advantage of. Being confident is important but being self-aware and being trainable is one of the most sexy things for a mentor to see. If you know all the answers, know everything, are super confident, you're always right and don't listen, you'll quickly burn out your mentor very, very quickly. Learn to keep people engaged and you can do that in a number of ways... maybe a weekly email that isn't too long. It's closing the loop every time you get feedback from them. You don't always have to agree with them but at least show that you are listening - keep them engaged." Jason then talked about raising money. You'll be surprised what he had to say. This discussion and predictions are from January 2010...There's much more...

New search: Patterns and pixels of images and videos
Leila Boujnane, Idée, Inc.enclosure-voice 947_ 1/4/11- Here's another interview in the 'Entrepreneurs NCWIT Heroes series. Lee Kennedy, BolderSearch and NCWIT Director along with Larry Nelson, w3w3.com are interviewing Leila Boujnane, the CEO of Idée Inc., (pronounced Eday). Idée’s goal is to make images searchable. Idée Inc. develops advanced image identification and visual search software. The technology looks at the patterns and pixels of images and videos to make each image or frame searchable by color, similarity or exact duplicate. Leila said, "Our current image index, these are the images that we've crawled from the web and indexed, is close to two billion. This is really a very exciting undertaking for us because it brought what we call image recognition based search to everyone." TinEye is a reverse image search engine. "It's like a Google image search except you use pictures instead of text." - Los Angeles Times. If you'd told Leila that she would be involved with technology a decade ago, she says she would have laughed and would have said you didn't know what you were talking about. She was in med school, in France, to become a doctor. She was curious about technology, of course, but had more of a science and mathematics mind rather than an engineering or software interest. But, Leila realized that medicine was just not for her. She stopped her studies and took a year off to figure out what she wanted. Making her way to Canada, and quite by accident, she ran into a group of people starting a software company. "They were looking for an addition to their team, I turned out to be a good fit and decided to give it a try... After that I never looked back, but it was completely accidental." ...listen, there's more...

James Norrod, President and CEO, Infinite Power Solutions, 
    Inc. and winner of the 50 Colorado Companies to Watch 2010 Always hire people better than you are
enclosure-voice 949_ 1/11/11 - We are with James Norrod, President and CEO, Infinite Power Solutions (IPS), winner of the Colorado 50 Companies to Watch, 2010. We are beginning the New Year and Larry's first question was regarding the overall future of business. The word that sums it up in for James is 'improvement'."Unemployment numbers are coming down. I think business is improving, the economy is improving. The thing I've noticed is the investors seem to be letting go of their money a little better. The VC's and private equity world seem to be investing in companies like Infinite Power Solutions and others, where two years ago they really held back in putting money into companies like ours. So I think the general environment is getting better and improving." Over the last five years IPS has raised $65 million. "We believe the cash in the company now is sufficient to do what we want to do going forward." They have some great investors in the company, "In fact the last round, all of the current investors participated. But we brought in a few new ones like Metronic, Generation Investment Management, which is Al Gore's investment company out of the UK, so some great new investors have come into the company and we are very excited about the future and those investors. Wondering what Infinite Power Solutions does? They are the leader in thin film solid state rechargeable batteries. They make a very small, paper thin battery that is used in applications such as medical devices, smart cards/biometric cards, used in wireless sensors in certain industrial applications where changing batteries is a very difficult thing to do. When asked for advice for business, things to do or to avoid, James replied, "I'm old fashioned in my answer to this. It's all about the people. As a CEO coming into a business like ours, I say, we are only as good as the team that we have. So our goal is to hire the very best people and then give them the opportunity to do their job and do it well. That's what I do personally and I am very proud of the team we have at IPS. My advice for new CEO's is always hire people better than you are."When asked for advice for business, things to do or to avoid, James replied, "I'm old fashioned in my answer to this. It's all about the people. As a CEO coming into a business like ours, I say, we are only as good as the team that we have.

Breaking down the barriers: Academics; Business; Civic
Chris Pelley, Capital Investment Management; and 
        Dennis Whittle, Global Giving Organization enclosure-voice 948_ 1/4/11- We're coming to you from the December ACG luncheon with Chris Pelley (Capital Investment Management Company) and Dennis Whittle (Global Giving), who are working to raise the consciousness around social enterprise and social entrepreneurship. Dennis is the founder of Global Giving and he was gracious in his efforts to come in and visit six universities and with ACG for their monthly luncheon, on this tour. Chris said he learned about Dennis Whittle when he read the book, Being Generous, and he'd heard about Global Giving and Dennis through Sherry Law whose daughter had been involved with Global Giving. Dennis was a big gun (as Chris says) at the World Bank for a number of years. Dennis mentioned that one of the themes during this visit has been 'breaking down boundaries' and Chris has been talking about collaboration across the three sectors, the ABCs of the academics, the business sector and civic groups. I really believe that kind of collaboration across sectors, and breaking down the boundaries is key to making progress with many of society's greatest challenges. That is what Global Giving is all about and that's what I'm seeing here in Denver and ACG, it's very encouraging. If you go to GlobalGiving.org you can choose from projects in almost 100 countries, in any cause or theme that you have interest in. Then you can read about the project and decide...

Dr. Bill Foege, Director, Global Health, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Fight to eliminate polio from planet earth
Grant Wilkens, Rotary, Polio Survivor and Activist enclosure-voice 946_ 1/4/11- Larry and Pat attended a Rotary International's End Polio Now event at the Governor's mansion. The topic is close to Larry's heart as he had polio a year before the Salk vaccine was released. They talked with Grant Wilkens who has been part of the Rotary International's End Polio Now program since its inception in 1986 and Dr. Bill Foege who was head of the CDC (Center for Disease Control) at the start of Rotary's program and was vitally important in giving Rotary guidelines to follow in the fight to eliminate polio from planet earth. Grant Wilkens long-time member of the Rotary Club joined in the interview. "All lives have equal value", is a statement on the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation website. Dr. Foege commented, "I think global health equity is the thing that drives the foundation and it should drive us. Everyone should have the same chance. That doesn't mean everyone has the same health, but they have the same chance to use the medical resources. The same thing is true with polio and early on I actually debated at the World Bank on this. Some people said this is not something we should be doing because we are putting our values on Africa...so it's a Colonial project. My response was, Gandhi said his idea of the Golden Rule was, he should not be able to enjoy things not enjoyed by others. My feeling was if I could have grandchildren free from the plague of polio, all grandparents should enjoy that. Einstein once said that nationalism was an infantile disease, he called it the measles of mankind, but we could call it the polio of mankind. We have to be thinking globally." He also offers some interesting advice for entrepreneurs...listen, there's more..
