Vision and Strategy and Stick to the Basics
Bob Todd, VP, Peak Venture Group - Colorado Springsenclosure-voice 1046_ 7/18/11 - Well we're here today, south of Boulder and Denver. We're talking to a leader in the area of Colorado Springs - Bob Todd and we're anxious to hear what the environment is there in relation to the companies and entrepreneurs, and the overall business environment. Bob Todd is in a position to know, as an officer in two businesses and head of a civic group, the Peak Venture Group. Bob pointed out, "In today's environment, increasing the value of a company, of course, is always important strategically relative to exit. But, it is increasingly important today on a tactical level. Whether or not you're raising funds or whether you're trying to attract customers, vendors or employees. Having a higher value on your business always attracts. We're going on the 3rd - 4th year of recession. When you put that context in, what you have are companies that have significantly restructured, refocused their efforts and now really are in a mode of fine tuning. In particular to really aim at profitable growth and being extremely nimble. In the last few years there are definitely stronger and deeper customer and vendor partnerships as well as employee bases that are working very dynamically, in the business environment, to ensure all parties needs are being met." Going forward, Bob advises entrepreneurs to 'stick to the basics', ensuring that all initiatives have a vision and strategy behind them and keep performance indicators cyclically - and ensure that the initiatives being taken are gaining results. The second piece of advice would be to take risks, but play it always against the basics so one could rapidly and nimbly adjust....here's more...

Jason Haislmaier, Partner, Holme Roberts & Owen, Boulder Jason Haislmaier: The law is a couple of steps behind the technology
enclosure-voice 1045_ 7/11/11 - One of the things that keeps Jason excited and interested in his work is that it is constantly changing and the law is always a couple of steps behind the technology, and sometimes desperately trying to catch up. Jason Haislmaier, Partner at Holme Roberts & Owen (HRO) in Boulder focuses his practice on IP and technology issues for emerging growth companies here in the Boulder/Denver corridor, out in California and Internationally and then also works with those same issues for larger companies on larger issues. These could be around protection of technology or intellectual property, commercialization, transactions, license agreements, outsourcing development agreements - really the full gambit of protection, commercialization and enforcement of IP rights and technology. As Jason and Larry talked, one of the areas that has come up recently is around the collection and use of, particularly, personally identifiable information and the privacy and security issues that come with that. Jason said, "We've had the commercial Internet for upwards of 15 years and we've had websites and web services out there collecting personally identifiable and other information from their users and from other third parties. And you've also had, over that time, an evolution of legal regulation and legal requirements on what you must be doing if you are obtaining that data, and then using that data. You also have a situation now, where we have, I think I would say conservatively over the next several years, a real situation where we're going to have some big sea change in terms of the legislative aspects" There's more detail, listen now...

Art Rancis, Profile of a Leader Part 3 of 3 Art Rancis: The reality is that many of us multitask all of the time
enclosure-voice 1045_ 7/11/11 - This is part 3 of 3 of an interview with Art Rancis for our Profile of a Leader series. Larry asked, "What do you do, to bring balance into your personal and professional life?" Art replied, "If you do work that is largely cerebral, then for balance you should do something physical…..for example, do something with your hands. I do two things, one is cooking. I started out by going to cooking school in Aspen for several summers and working for free in the kitchens of Aspen’s top restaurants during the evenings. I not only learned great recipes and skills like knife techniques, but also the kitchen teamwork that is essential at a 5 star restaurant. Another example in my case is amateur car racing. I race cars....for relaxation. What? How can that be relaxing? The reality is that many of us multitask all of the time between phone calls, e-mails, texting, etc. However, when you are on a track at 150MPH, you are very focused on what you are doing and are no longer multi-tasking .....actually relaxing. Larry followed with, "What will your legacy be and how do you want to be remembered?" Art's interesting reply, "First of all, let me set something straight….I am no where near to checking out. When I turned 40 I made sure that everyone knew I was only 1/3rd of the way through my life. But to answer the question, I hope that I am remembered as a Renaissance type of man. I love business but I also love the arts (I started my career as a professional photographer and cinematographer), I can wire a house, fix plumbing, and teach a course in fine cooking (I just did one recently for a charity benefit). Now back to business. Some people box me into the category of being a “Serial Entrepreneur”. Listen for more... Part 1... Part 2...

Kelly Manning: Financial Challenges and Solutions
Kelly Manning, State Director, SBDC Networkenclosure-voice 1045_ 7/11/11 - We're taking a little different look at businesses today and we're with Kelly Manning, State Director for the Small Business Development Center Network (SBDC Network). Covering every county in the state of Colorado the SBDC Network provides free counseling and free to low cost business training - Kelly said, "We help all entrepreneurs to start, grow and prosper your business. That's our mission statement and we really hold true to that." Whether you're a startup or have been in business for 20 years, the SBDC have assistance that can help you be successful. We've followed Kelly and her work for a number of years - certainly in position to know, we asked Kelly what she saw as the biggest challenge for companies today. Kelly didn't think it would be a surprise that finance challenges are right up top. So, small businesses having access to capital, whether that's startup, growth or in some cases to cover payroll - "...what we're finding is banks are not lending nearly what they had. Although they say they're lightening up - [we'll see]. It's really a challenge and what we're trying to do is help businesses understand their financials. Where do you need to cut costs? Where are your savings? Advertising, are you getting your 'return on investment'? And how much?, Is it worth it? So if you are unable to get the funding, the next step is to look at your financials and understanding your financial statements." Our second classic question looks at what opportunities are present. Kelly didn't hesitate, "It's coming up to an election year again, and the biggest thing in any election year is how important small businesses are." The opportunity is for small businesses to shine with more publicity, recognition as really being the backbone of our economy. Kelly goes on to say...

Phil Weiser, Dean CU Law School, Exec Dir. Silicon Flatirons Entrepreneurship, Technology, Law and Building a Winning Team
1049_ 7/18/11 - "I am glad to let you all know that my plan for a two year leave of absence-and no more than that-is coming true. Starting this July 1st, I will assume the role as Dean of the Law School, as well as taking back the reigns from Dale Hatfield as Executive Director at Silicon Flatirons," wrote Phil Weiser to his friends. "I am delighted about the prospect of rejoining the Law School and Silicon Flatirons community. I look forward to working with you as we write the next chapter of Silicon Flatirons initiatives and projects. Dale Hatfield's service to our country, our community, and Silicon Flatirons are far beyond any words I can offer. He remains a true friend, role model, and mentor. Additionally, the Silicon Flatirons leadership team-Brad Bernthal's vision and top flight execution of the Entrepreneurial Initiative, Paul Ohm's path breaking insights and thought-provoking programming as part of the Information Technology/Intellectual Property Initiative, and Anna Noschese's stellar work as the Center's Program Director-all stepped up in my absence. Our Executive and Advisory Board members surrounded our team with superb insight, direction, and support. And with my responsibilities as Dean, I will depend on them all continuing that leadership, along with Dale Hatfield's continued support and that of our newest addition as a resident Senior Fellow, Preston Padden. I am also glad to announce that, two years after Dale was handed the baton I take it back, at an event to honor Dale's service taking place on Thursday, July 7th at 7 pm at the University of Colorado Law School." Silicon Flatirons pursues three basic goals: to elevate the debate around technology policy issues; to facilitate networking, the development of "human capital" and the promotion of entrepreneurship in the Colorado technology community; and to inspire student interest in technology law and entrepreneurship." LISTEN and WATCH this very interesting and informative video series.
