Larry Gray, CEO, Assist Group and CCTW Winner 2011 Evaluating catastrophic medical claims is a very complex process
enclosure-voice 1087_ 10/3/11 - We're talking with another winner today, that's a Colorado Companies to Watch winner, Larry Gray, CEO of the Assist Group. Larry has a fascinating background - he's been the CEO of three successful startups, COO of a $500 million publicly traded company, president and CEO of a $2 Billion traded company and the list goes on. The Assist Group reviews and resolves catastrophic medical claims for a number of markets in the reinsurance area. So, reinsurance companies, health plans, managing general underwriters and large self insured employers. These claims get over $200,000 to $300,000, they go into the reinsurance layer and that's where the Assist Group takes over, above that layer. Evaluating catastrophic medical claims is a much more complex process than just running them through a technological coding audit. They actually have nurses, clinical specialists and coding experts take the claim apart, look at it from all the angles and then they report back to the clients on what they've found. the goal is to find trends, educate the market and then provide this good data coming back. One thing to note is catastrophic claims have tripled since 2005! Claims around the million dollar mark are growing and growing rapidly. Most of that is due to implants, drugs and technological invention and the aging of the population. Larry said as employers get larger and larger, they think of themselves as entities that can take some risk and have some clout in terms of dealing with physician groups and hospitals, and writing their own contracts. Many of them are trying to establish a good direction before we either become or get away from more federal intervention in terms of the healthcare world. Larry offers observations, important opinions and great advice as well as dealing effectively in our current economic environment going forward. You will want to hear the entire interview, so listen now!

Keep plugging away, stay focused, don't be afraid
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...

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...
