Brad Feld, Managing Director, Foundry Group Brad Feld: Community college to MIT
enclosure-voice 1004_ 4/25/11 - This is part 2 of Brad Feld's Interrogation. Jill Van Matre, Associate Director of Atlas and co-moderates this last Entrepreneurs Unplugged event for Spring 2011 with Brad Bernthal (BB) who is a clinical law professor at the law school and Director of the Silicon Flatirons Center Entrepreneurship Initiative interviewed Brad panel style. Part 2 begins with Professor Bernthal’s query: "Take us from the community college to MIT and the start of Feld Technologies." Brad replied, "I was your typical high school kid in Dallas, I did well in school, ran track. I was moderately social when I wasn't reading or playing with my computer. I was a pretty good tennis player until, I discovered computers and girls. And those two things ruined my tennis career when I was about age 14. I never really thought about where to go to college." (Here we have the two-and-a-half minute video, View Video- the MIT experience.) It was the girlfriend... in 8th grade - she was fascinated with MIT. and that stuck in Brad's head so he applied. He got in early and threw away all his other college applications. So, he went to MIT and MIT was a fascinating place. Brad says he's glad he went there. It was the right place for him. "Because," he said, "MIT is a daily assault on your self-esteem. You realize there is no such thing as being the smartest guy in the room... forget it, there's just no way that's going to happen. So that dynamic plays forward in your life when you realize you don't have to be the smartest person in the room to be successful and accomplished. But, you have to work hard, you have to be focused, you have to go after something you really care about. and that's how I got to that place where I started what became Feld Technologies. Next week, Jill Van Matre asks Brad to talk about the beginning of Feld Technologies.

Jim Franklin, Founder Institute Start your dream company in 2011
enclosure-voice 1002_ 4/25/11 - Larry interviewed Jim Franklin the 2011 co-host of the Colorado Founder Institute. Jim joins Jon Nordmark as the co-host. Jim said, "Because I am Boulder-based and also a TechStars mentor, I am often asked about the differences between TechStars and the Founder Institute. The key difference I see between the two programs is the overall goal: at TechStars your team will be in Boulder full-time and demo your work at Investor Day. All TechStars participants form an operating company by the end of the program. With the Founder Institute you will get an education on what it means to be a founder from others who have been there and done that. Most of the participants are operating a new company by the end, or shortly thereafter, but some just keep working their day job until the moment is right for them. In addition to TechStars, we have many resources for entrepreneurs in Colorado, and all of them have their differentiating points. Here’s what I see as unique aspects of the Founder Institute: You can keep your day job. You don’t have to relocate to Boulder. If you graduate you contribute 3.5 percent of your company to a pool that is owned by you and the other graduates and mentors from your class. You are quite literally invested in the success of your peers. The mentors are exclusively experienced CEOs and founders – no service providers. If you are ready to commit 15 hours a week for 14 weeks to get your next business ready to launch, I look forward to helping you.. And whether or not you launch your business, you will be a much better-informed founder when the time is right." Jim should know as he is a successful serial entrepreneur. Application for New Founders is due May 1, 2011 ...There's much more...listen now...

Barrett Blank & Larry Nelson, RVC's 
        Pitch Academy Key metrics to manage your sales operations
enclosure-voice1001_ 4/18/11 - Rockies Venture Club created the Investor Pitch Academy (Video) as a four-part program to help new and/or growing businesses create the kind of business that is sustainable and attractive to investors. Educational workshops, mentoring, coaching and the 5-minute pitch presentation help business owners. RVC is offering a workshop, Sales Basics for Entrepreneurial Success and Larry interviewed one of the expert panelist, Barrett Blank Principle of Be Inventiv. 50% of new businesses are gone within the first year. And, after five years, only 5% of new businesses are still around. That means that only 5% of entrepreneurs know how to create a sustainable business. As a new entrepreneur, you understand your products and services, but do you know how or where to get necessary funding to get your business off the ground? Once it is off the ground, are you aware of and do you have the knowledge and expertise to deal with all aspects of creating a sustainable business? The RVC has developed the Investors Pitch Academy to fulfill the need in the market place for a broader and deeper depth of service to the new and growing entrepreneur. Barrett talked about some of the workshop details. You will learn how to: Build a repeatable model; Bridge marketing and sales to generate required lead flow for sales; Tap into appropriate sales processes for your business; Utilize sales tools to accelerate revenue generation; and understanding key metrics to manage your sales operations. Barrett has leveraged his 30 years of experience in sales / marketing, technology, process and business operations to take the leadership roles of: BB2e / BeInventiv. Throughout his career with both Fortune 50 and entrepreneurial firms, Barrett has developed a track record of delivering unqualified success in all operational areas of a business. This workshop is coming up April 26, 2011. You'll enjoy watching and listening to this video...

Mike Fries, CEO, Liberty Global and Garth Jensen, 
        Partner, Holm Roberts Owen, LLP Do more of what you do well is a great motto
enclosure-voice 997_ 4/11/11 - We are with Mike Fries, President and CEO of Liberty Global, who earlier this year spent some time in Davos at a fantastic, marvelous conference. Also joining us is Garth Jensen a partner at Holme Roberts & Owen. Garth set the stage with some background, Mike Fries runs a worldwide operation, primarily in Europe, "As you see technology bringing the world closer and business becoming more global, what are some of your thoughts as you attended this conference in Davos?" Mike replied, "I've been going every year now for 6, 7 years and what happens is the conference has evolved - but your experience within the conference evolves too. The first year I was there I did spend quite a bit of time milling about, experiencing and enjoying different types of events and speeches and panels. But every year since I've become more and more programmed in the sense that I'm involved in an industry partnership group for the telcos. The quality of people you have is world class, of course. For me to be able to interact in a two to three day period with the CEO of Georgia Telecom, CEO of Google, the CEO of Microsoft, all in a relatively small, informal environment and to understand where we're each coming from, with respect to our businesses and to our challenges, is a positive thing. And I always learn something. I always learn something I didn't know coming in. I'm happy to be, and lucky to go." Garth asked, "How do things you learn actually get translated into your services for your customers?" Mike shared his thoughts. "I would say as a CEO you have to have a vision, a clear articulation of where we're going and what we're doing and so I find, in many ways, I come out of there with a better sense of our direction; I understand better where our competitors are going or what they're thinking. So it helps define and refine your strategic vision of your business and your products and your services. So ultimately consumers benefit. Garth pointed out, "Mike I've known and worked with you for about 20 years and your career has been very impressive. You've worked with a lot of the country's best known and most well regarded business people during your career." Mikes reply, "I have been lucky to work with, of course John Malone, who I think is arguably the best boss you could ever have, from so many different perspectives. And of course, Gene Schneider who was a great mentor to me in many ways. I learned a lot from both of these guys." There's much more...

Awesome tools for you and also for your business
Laura Fitton, Oneforty.com, NCWIT Hero enclosure-voice 1003_ 4/25/11 - This is part of a series of interviews that we are having with fabulous entrepreneurs. Women who have started “IT” companies in a variety of sectors, all of whom have just fabulous stories to tell us, about being entrepreneurs. Lucy Sanders, CEO for the National Center for Women and Information Technology or NCWIT along with Larry Nelson, Director of w3w3® Media Network interviewed Laura Fitton, CEO and Founder of Oneforty.com. Lucy points out that Laura is known as the 'Queen of Twitter'. Oneforty helps people understand Twitter and the exploding ecosystem of applications and services built on it; and Oneforty has been called the 'app store for Twitter' by TechCrunch and others. Back to 2006, Laura moved to Boston, with no business network she's going to start her communications consulting firm there, after nearly 2 1/2 years out of the market. So she gets into blogging, hears about this Twitter thing. She blogs about how stupid this Twitter thing is (March 2007) and then two months later, says Laura, "the nickel drops." Laura realized she could surround herself with successful, interesting people and still be this home-based mom of two kids under two and yet stay motivated and inspired throughout her work day. And that is exactly what appealed to her about Twitter when Twitter finally did appeal to her. Laura tried hard not to be an entrepreneur, she worked for one in her twenties and "the guy was nuts!" You have to be fundamentally out of touch with reality on some level, because otherwise you'd know your idea can't possibly work. You have to have enough detachment from that to go and make it work, which is great!" Laura has a number of valuable tips about using Twitter and then goes onto some great advice for entrepreneurs.

Brad Feld, Featured Guest at Silicon Flatiron's Entrepreneurs 
    Unplugged April 2011 Brad Feld reveals his true beginning while getting Unplugged
enclosure-voice 1000_ 4/18/11 - Brad Feld was corralled and interviewed by Jill Van Matre, Associate Director of Atlas and co-moderates this last Entrepreneurs Unplugged event for Spring 2011 with Brad Bernthal (BB) who is Clinical Law Professor at the CU Law School and Director of the Silicon Flatirons Center Entrepreneurship Initiative. BB asked Feld, "In terms of getting things started, give us a little background. You have family here, grew up in Texas and some of the more interesting things I've seen in those interviews you've done is a list of influential business people including your grandfather. What did your grandfather do and what kind of influence did he have on you growing up?" (SPECIAL NOTE: Brad is his usual entertaining self - we have a two minute video - please watch. We're sure you'll enjoy!) Brad Feld said, "My grandfather was an immigrant, came here from Austria, (so my father is first generation American). He was an entrepreneur; he had his own clothing factory. The type of clothing that he made is the stuff that has rhinestones on it. The people who carried his clothing were like the knock-off of Marshalls. He had a factory in Florida, this bad, bad, kind of burnt out warehouse in the middle of the worst part of Miami. He was this salt of the earth kind of guy and he didn't believe in anything made after 1950. So every piece of machinery was pre 1950. When machines broke down he'd have to figure out what to do. When friends died, he'd go and buy their machinery for parts and replacements. So I think sort of growing up and watching him sort of make his own way in the world, be completely entrepreneurial was an early inspiration. My dad (Stanley Feld) had his own medical practice that was about a $10 million/year business at the peak. He had four partners and 30 or 40 employees. I remember also watching that grow from one person; he started out in private practice, to a real business. I never really thought hard about not doing my own thing from very early on." Feld shares so much more including in 1978 when he turned 13. "Gold was about $400/oz and Krugerrands were all the rage and when you got Bar Mitzvahed you took your Bar Mitzvah money and bought Krugerrands, that's what all my friends were doing. I thought that was stupid, I wanted a computer. I had about $1,600. a fortune, so I took my dad to a computer store." Part 2 is coming with Professor Bernthal‘s next query: Take us from the community college to MIT and the start of Feld Technologies. Tune in next week!

Melodie Reagan, Managing Partner, i2iWorkforce and 
    Larry Nelson Talent recruitment, training, development and retention
enclosure-voice 998_ 4/18/11 - Talent strategy is not just a matter of recruiting people. It has to do with training, development and retention of all types. Today we are lucky enough to Jen Long, Managing Partner, i2iWorkforceinterview the the Managing Partners of i2iWorkforce, Melodie Reagan, Jennifer Long. They pointed out, "Nationally, we finally dipped below 9% unemployment." Larry wanted to know if that meant we are on a path to recovery. Last month alone we had a 216 jobs to the roster and that feels really great. So if you're asking are we on the road to recover, the answer is yes. The predictions this year for unemployment is that it is going to continue to go down. However, the growth is not going to be the big boom that we're used to. It's still going to be in that gradual state. And when we think about job creation, actually more of the jobs are going to be created are for replacements as opposed to new jobs because of new industries or new businesses. But there are going to be more jobs and unemployment is on the downturn. While there was some cautious optimism they pointed out that many employers are getting back to the basics and by asking some very important questions. Larry pointed out, "Employers today are asking a number of very important questions. One question they're asking is, 'What are long term workforce strategies? That is going back to the basics. Second, Is our current talent enough to meet plans for business growth? And third, Where do we go from here?" Their reply, "It's a great opportunity for companies to get focused on where they're going strategically. How they're going to grow, what markets they want to be in, and to come back and look at their workforce and say, Do I have the right talent, of the right type to get where I need to go. Because the largest expense, for most businesses, is their talent. And today, companies can burn between permanent as well as temporary in doing outsourcing of services - and that's something they want to get in front of today. Relative to trends that are occurring in the market place, there are phenomenal studies out there. In fact the Bureau of Labor Statistics has a Workforce Trend Report that goes through 2018. So what can you expect as a business leader on trends in the workforce? One is the graying of the workforce - by 2018 approximately 25% will be 55 years of age and older. Diversity? Our workforce is reflecting our population which is becoming ever more diverse." The i2i Workforce team knows talent recruitment, training, development and retention, and understands the challenges you face in your business and your career. Listen for more...
