Richard Bass, President of the Boulder Software Club and the Denver Software Clubenclosure-voice 1083_ 9/26/11 - We're here today with a high-tech guy who is really involved with many organizations - and one of the things we admire are people who can run a business and support the community. Richard Bass, is the president of a number of organizations including the Boulder and Denver Software Clubs, the Business Club for Front Range Software and SaaS and he is the principal of his own company, Executive Software Connections. Larry asked, "What are the biggest challenges facing companies today?" Richard replied, "I speak on the software side and I'm not going to comment outside of that industry. I would say there are three challenges that come to mind. The biggest one that I hear from most all the software CEOs and product development executives here, and product development executives, CTOs, VPs of Engineering is they're complaining about finding talented software engineers especially in a lot of the skill sets. It really is a huge problem here and it is constraining the growth of the locally funded software and SaaS companies. This is even a nationwide problem, but it is as big a problem in Colorado as anywhere." "What are the greatest opportunities today?" He said, "The other challenges for software companies, that I see, are things like marketing. Many of the smaller software and SaaS companies do a good job of getting the 'lowest hanging fruit' sales wise for their business, but they don't segment their markets and pricing enough to get more of the pie. I think the third thing is access to capital has changed for software companies. The VC market has shifted. We've got some very good out of town VCs trying to pick up here like GroTech, Highway 12 and some others. But the market has definitely shifted - TechStars is funding some different type companies -but for many companies this can be quite difficult. Just generally, there's a lot of hype about starting social media company products and services and business. I think it fundamentally comes down to solving a current pressing problem a company or industry has. I've seen a lot of local companies grow and branch out from there. Having said that, a lot of investor money, a great management team and a solid sales team with an emerging product, obviously can work well. Richard and Larry also discussed other sound ideas for leaders today...listen for more great advice...

Su Hawk, President, Colorado Technology Association Access to venture capital is important in most every company
enclosure-voice 1079_ 9/19/11 - We're here with Su Hawk, president of the Colorado Technology Association, to discuss some very interesting things coming up, near term and going out to 2012. Happy to tell us about it, Su said, "Here's the scoop. We have to make sure the technology industry in Colorado is as vibrant as possible. And we're very serious here at CTA about doing everything that we can do." The project, an industry road map, that Su is referring to has already begun in 2011. It will help guide the work that needs to be done for the industry. Gathering information and statistics, reasons for locating here, and for staying here, the talent pool, the regulatory environment - answering the questions, what drew them here, what keeps them here, what will help keep them in the future. For instance access to venture capital is important in most every company, but certainly technology, but what kind of access to capital? As early stage companies grow what else do they need as a second stage, more mature company? Is it a form of access? is it PE; is it investment; are they planning to go public? What is it that they're really looking for? So that's what this industry roadmap will do. Su said, "We've grown organically so well, in Colorado. Imagine if we also added a few elements to stimulate that growth. Imagine what we could do." She points out that other local industries have done this type of industry road map successfully. While this will be launched in 2012 the work has already begun this year in the fund raising and the framing and then the report will be due out in 2012. The roundtables with company leaders CEO's, CTO's and CIO's, will occur in different geographies in our state. For example the composition of technology issues might be a little different in Colorado Springs vs. Fort Collins or Boulder. We also know the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Boulder is enormously strong. So, some of the roundtables will be around geography, some by sector. We want to know why great entrepreneurs like...there's more... DEMOgala is coming up October 14th with dozens of great speakers focusing on Colorado this year.

Social media is a huge opportunity for marketing
Steve Knopper, Writer, Rolling Stone - Author, "Appetite for Self Destruction"enclosure-voice 1081_ 9/19/11 - Would you like to be able to predict the success and challenges of your industry? We interviewed Steve Knopper an year and half ago, and he was spot on. Steve Knopper has a good deal of experience in the world of music writing for Rolling Stone and author of Appetite for Self Destruction. He is here at the ACG Denver, September Luncheon as the keynote speaker and we pulled him aside for a closer look. Quick to point out that what he does for Rolling Stone is cover the music business. He is uniquely qualified to speak to what the music business did wrong; what Steve has learned and how people in other industries can learn to deal with their challenges. One of the things the music business did wrong was not see the strategic inflection points coming - and those are basically a fork in the road. When new technology - transforming technology comes along like the Internet, like Napster in the music industry's case; MP3s you know, things that basically allow people to steal music for free - the music industry didn't react well to that. Part of that was understandable, but they should have seen an opportunity to sell music online much earlier than they did. They could have really dealt with that market in a more effective way rather than ceding their business to Apple and the iTunes Music Store. "So" said Steve, "that's one of the challenges I see, with the Internet basically disrupting almost every company, maybe with the exception of food companies. I think companies have to look at the music industry as an example, and say we need to jump on this more quickly and not get stuck in the hole that the music industry dug for itself." With all of that, the Internet and Social Media, Larry asked, "Are there opportunities for the music industry?" Absolutely, Steve believes that social media is a huge opportunity for marketing. Music companies are using Facebook and Twitter to a great degree. But there also are some new developments. One is YouTube which has actually become a much more effective way that record labels, artists and song writers, and publishers can make money off of the ads they sell on YouTube....listen for more...

Niniane Wang, CTO, Minted User generated content is becoming more and more critical
enclosure-voice 1082_ 9/26/11 - Niniane has a great track record at Google and Microsoft. She started with Minted about a year ago and leads the technology team including engineering and technical operations. Lucy Sanders, CEO for the National Center for Women and Information Technology or NCWIT along with Larry Nelson, Director of w3w3® Media Network conduct another interview as part of the NCWIT Entrepreneurial Heroes series, with great women entrepreneurs. People who have started companies in all types of technology sectors and have told us fabulous stories. Today we have Niniane Wang, CTO of Minted. Minted is a startup out of San Francisco and it uses technology to crowd source graphic designs from a global community. Minted holds monthly design challenges for stationery, invitations, calendars, and other categories and all graphic designers are invited to enter. The Minted community selects the best designs in a highly competitive process; winning designers earn cash prizes, a place in the Minted collection, and commissions on all sales of their designs. It is a great site - you can go there and discover the work of great designers from all over the world. Lucy asked, "How did you get into technology? And as you look out, which ones do you see that are particularly interesting?" Niniane pointed out - I got into technology by programming in basic when she was five... Her parents had immigrated to the US so that her dad could get a PhD in math. They didn't have a lot of time or money. They bought a game counsel from Radio Shack because they couldn't afford Nintendo. It had a basic interpreter on it - it came with a book of basic programs and Niniane started copying in the programs. She said it was very visual and she would amuse herself in this way. It was fun, rewarding and instantly satisfying. Niniane loves disruptive technologies like the Kindle and says she carries hers everywhere and buys 10 times as many books now. User generated content is becoming more and more critical. First we saw user generated web sites, now there is a proliferation of people creating art. Niniane offers many insights...listen for more...

PW: "The one challenge anyone serving government has is how do you make sure, the information and perspective you're getting are wide ranging."
BF: "From here it looks like the policy makers and legislators are making decisions on tech issues they don't understand. Do you find this to be true?" Phil replied,
PW: "No. I think generally there is a reasonable humility and caution about technology policy. It is very hard because it is moving quickly and complex."
BF: "There are concerns about the patent laws... is congress really doing something substantial here?
PW: "The first question and a core problem is, can we enable our patent system in the office to operate more effectively. The written description and enablement requirement - So you're not supposed to be able to file a patent that is a prospect for something that might be invented some day. That's not what a patent system..." There's much more in this Silicon Flatirons discussion...

Present their technologies to VC's and strategic partners
Holli Reibel, President & CEO, Colorado Bio Science Associationenclosure-voice 10XX_ 9/19/11 - To whet your appetite, Holli Reibel, president and CEO of the Colorado Bio Sciences Association (CBSA), tells us about a few of the companies presenting at the first "Rocky Mountain Life Science Investor and Partnering Conference" coming up this week. And, it's very exciting. Here's a sampling of new and exciting technologies, devices and bio firsts ("native technologies coming out of our research institutions"), you can expect to see there. How about a universal flu vaccine that responds to all strains rather than each year's particular strain. A company that is interesting (having received a grant from the Defense Department) is Flashback Technologies. They developed a proprietary program/device that can actually quickly determine internal injuries, think internal bleeding with critical risk of death, but aren't readily apparent in the turbulence and confusion of the field triage environment. Another interesting company has developed a device that has actually improved memory in Alzheimer patients, using light therapy through the carotid artery. Last week we looked at the grave challenges facing the bio and life sciences industry and we talked about this new and interesting program CBSA has coming up September 21st and 22nd - the Life Science Investor and Partnering Conference. Opening Night Reception at the Governor's Mansion is all about networking. It's really a venue to bring some of our top technologies and companies from Colorado and some of our surrounding states, to present their technologies to VC's and strategic partners.
