Nicole Glaros, Managing Director, TechStars Boulder Nicole Glaros says we have over 150 companies in our portfolio
enclosure-voice 1218_ 6/4/12 - We've run into an 'old friend', she's not old but a long time friend and familiar to nearly everyone in Boulder and Denver. We're talking with Nicole Glaros, the Managing Director of Boulder TechStars. Nicole says as the managing director she has the wonderful opportunity of working with 10-12 teams a year, giving them a little bit of seed capital and a whole bunch of mentorship to take them to the next level. Of course, w3w3® has met and interviewed a number of TechStar alumnus here at GlueCon. TechStar teams are here from Boulder, but also TechStars Cloud, which is their first thematic program. Larry recalled interviewing David Cohen just a few months before TechStar One. He asked Nicole what has changed over the years? "Oh Wow!" said Nicole. "We started off in Boulder, the first program was in 2007. Since then we've launched four more programs, Boston, Seattle, New York and now TechStar-Cloud which is based in San Antonio. We also have a book and there was a TV show last year. We've got our web series and it has been going great!" Larry asked what she thought we might see in the future with TechStars. Nicole said, "We are committed to helping entrepreneurs get to the next level of growth and being a value add for investors as well. Continuing to focus on that any number of things can happen." Nicole has been with TechStars since almost the beginning. She was there when it was just one office in Boulder and, she said, "It's been really fun to see the program grow and mature. Now we have over 150 companies in our portfolio now. So we've just created a massive network of entrepreneurs across the country and the world as well - it's been a lot of fun!" Nicole said...listen for more...

Jason Carolan, CTO, ViaWest Jason Carolan, organizations are grappling with big data challenges
enclosure-voice 1219_ 6/4/12 - One of the things we've noticed is that Roy Dimoff and Nancy Phillips, co-founders of ViaWest are constantly announcing new things coming up. Jason Carolan is CTO for ViaWest and we've worked with ViaWest for a number of years. We asked Jason if he had something new to announce, and of course he did. "Sure, just this last week we launched our new storage offering - storage as a service offering. It's an extension to our 'connected storage platform'. We have it both here in Colorado and in Utah. So for customers grappling with the 'big data challenge', and we all know that data is growing faster than ever before. We've got the right platform for that." We wondered if this had an impact on the Cloud services. Jason told us, "Absolutely! It's one of the reasons we have GlueCon with APIs and how all these systems talk together and integrate together - it's about the resources. i.e. Cloud, getting to that data, processing it, real time analytics, doing something with it to change your business. So we see Cloud and storage and data being very much linked together." Larry asked Jason what was coming down the road that he could talk about? Disaster Recovery (DR) Services is something they are launching later this year, so DR is between our Colorado and Utah facilities. Really lowering the cost of entry into that platform." Jason said the time is over for customers to go build a bunch of additional hardware at another data center where they pay full price for it and it just sits there idle most of the time. We asked for Jason's advice to businesses today. He said, "Constantly look what's out there because it a very dynamic landscape. If you're not looking at SaaS, you should be. If you've got your own exchange servers, how do you move that to the cloud? There's just a great portfolio of offerings that are out there to really lower your costs and probably to make your employees much more productive at the same time.

Eric Norlin, it's moving away from the CIO/CTO level
Eric Norlin, Founder, GlueConenclosure-voice 1220_ 6/4/12 - Finally we actually corralled Eric Norlin, the founder of GlueCon as well as Defrag and Blur - who is, as you can imagine, a study in constant motion - plus he understands all of this techno babble. First we asked Eric for an overview of Glue. "So, Glue is a conference focused on developers (hence the techno babble). Thematically it is organized around the ideas of Cloud Computing, mobile development, big data and APIs." Glue's future? Eric sees a lot more growth. The strange phenomenon when you're talking about cloud computing, mobile development, big data or APIs, is that you run into the idea that this department level developer inside the enterprise is where the power is migrating to. It's moving away from the CIO/CTO level and going downstream. The research is needed to build applications or to move legacy applications on to mobile platforms or to analyze huge amounts of data. But this no longer requires seven figure budgets that need approval and nine month time frames. It's something a person or a two member team can do with ten grand, a proto type and bust it out in three days. There is this trend of the renaissance enterprise developer, something akin to what we saw when Borland and Visual Studio ruled the day, and it involved lots of development vs. suites. Eric said it feels like we are entering a phase similar to that. Now you might be wondering what is Defrag and how do the conferences compare - so we asked Eric. "It's an idea driven conference where we're trying to put 20 of the smartest people we can find on stage to talk about interesting ideas related to technology. That doesn't mean they're CEOs of big companies, they may be working on something interesting that would make us want to put them on stage. Defrag is capped at 325 people, it's a very intimate and exclusive audience, tends to be more a C-level type person.

Mike Ihbe advises, Piggy back on trends and the social
Mike Ihbe, Application Platform Engineer, Yammer enclosure-voice 1214_ 5/28/12 - As the "cloud" becomes a common platform, web applications still live in a "stovepipe" world. At the Glue Conference, we met folks who are exploring the new technologies that are forming around web applications in a post-cloud world. We caught up with Mike Ihbe, Application Platform Engineer with Yammer. Yammer is the social intranet, providing social collaboration tools for people to get work done on their intranet and leverage the social mechanisms that are so popular in today's world. We are talking intranet, Yammer is for inside your company so you can collaborate with your coworkers on projects or anything you do during your normal job, you can do online with Yammer. Larry asked Mike what he sees down the road for Yammer. Mike said, "We're adding features all the time. We started as kind of a Twitter for the enterprise and we worked our way up to a fully featured intranet suite. We've just acquired this company called 'One Drum" they do a lot of file sync. So we'll have a lot of "DropBox" type features now. We're integrating more and more of your offline work with Excel documents and whatnot into the Yammer experience. Larry asked if Yammer works with large, medium or small companies and Mike told us they work with every size. In fact they have accounts with 85% of the Fortune 500, and small and medium size businesses are a huge part of our business too. Larry asked Mike what advice he would give entrepreneurs today. Mike said, "Piggy back on trends actually. We're piggy-backing on social and the other trend we found is enterprise tools basically. So, enterprise tools are very old and we're capitalizing on the cloud to deliver high quality, consumerized, enterprise products...listen for more...

Martin Faith, President, Scottish Group Companies and Dr. Douglas Jackson, 
    President/CEO, Project C.U.R.E. Doug Jackson, Martin Faith, Summer Solstice Celebration
enclosure-voice 1217_ 6/4/12 - Planning to celebrating the Summer Solstice this year? You're invited to join Dr. Douglas Jackson, President/CEO, Project C.U.R.E. and Martin Faith, President, Scottish Group Companies at their very special event, Summer Solstice, Glass, Grapes and Gruyere. You will have the opportunity to make an impact in the world, have some great fun and pick up a rare piece of antique Scottish Stained Glass. When asked what advice Martin Faith would offer to entrepreneurs and business leaders, he said simply, "I would like to think people would run their businesses with a conscience and not just be in business to make money. To provide, obviously, valuable services to their clients but also to give something back to the community. When you do that you get it back ten times over - what comes around, goes around." Here is a man who walks his talk. In Scotland, for many years Martin collected these beautiful antique stained glass windows, it was his passion. When he came to the U.S. he brought his collection with him and sold a lot of them to pay for his immigration to this country. He's kept some beautiful pieces for himself. For several years he wondered what he should do with the rest. After he met Doug Jackson he knew what to do. Martin decided he would sell the collection and give the money to Project C.U.R.E. and the Summer Solstice, Glass, Grapes and Gruyere event was born. Dr. Douglas Jackson, President/CEO, Project C.U.R.E.
Doug said, "You know the neat thing about the solstice, it's the one day in the year where we get the most sun and what better way to celebrate the sun than coming through beautiful pieces of stained glass. It's exciting and we're hoping to raise enough to ship a container (we're talking about a semi truck trailer - or similar weight) and that is going to be worth about $400,000.00, because of Martin's effort. That's remarkable!"
      Denver is the world headquarters for Project C.U.R.E. founded by Dr. James W. Jackson, (Founder Emeritus) in 1987, after visiting a small clinic in Rio de Janeiro. There, he saw patients turned away due to the lack of basic medical supplies and equipment. He made a promise that he would help provide relief to those people. Within 30 days of returning to his home in Evergreen, Colorado, Dr. Jackson had collected over $100,000 worth of medical equipment and supplies. He personally paid to have these shipped to that clinic. PROJECT C.U.R.E. builds sustainable healthcare infrastructure by providing the medical supplies and equipment that medical personnel need to deliver healthcare to their communities. Since its inception, PROJECT C.U.R.E. has delivered medical relief to needy people in more than 120 countries. PROJECT C.U.R.E. works with recipient partner organizations by donating the medical supplies and equipment they need to provide healthcare to the people in the local community. Meet these extraordinary men Thursday, June 21, for an evening of stained glass education, demonstration and donation with all the profits from the sale of this century old stained glass window collection going to help PROJECT C.U.R.E. deliver a 40-ft container of desperately needed medical supplies to an ill-equipped clinic or hospital in a developing country.

Adam Wilsosn, Chief Software Architect/Founder Adam Wilson, these events are populating developers creating apps
enclosure-voice Larry Nelson, Executive Director/Founder, Internet Talk Radio - Ranked Number One by Google...1213_ 5/28/12 - It's been about two years since we talked with Adam Wilson, a Boulder TechStar 2010 alum - their name was GearBox at that time and has since been changed to Orbotix. We talked to Adam at the Glue Conference. And Orbotix makes Sphero, the robotic ball that you control with your smart phone or tablet device. At first glance, Sphero appears to be a glowing orb you can drive around. But what is really interesting is the sensors inside allow you to pick Sphero up in your hands and allow you to control objects on the screen, or games on the screen, while moving the Sphero around in three dimensions, in your hand. Adam tells us they've done a lot of work in 'augmented reality'. "Sphero is a universally unique ball. It's a circle you can identify from anywhere - we have this moving fiducial, a recognizable object in our screen that we can do a lot of interesting game play with. The fact that we have an SDK really speaks to the techies, so for iOS, Android or you can write an application for the ball that does what you want it to. Down the road 'augmented reality' we see as the big play that a lot of companies are going towards. Orbotix has an edge on that just because they have something in the real world that they can control. Not only that, with the SDK, Orbotix is having a 'Hack Tour' going around the country (NYC, Seattle, Boston, Austin, San Francisco - here in Boulder where 100 people show up. They give all of them a Spheros, and the winner in two different categories gets $5,000. for writing the best application for Sphero. So these events are populating developers, people creating apps." Now there are hundreds of apps that they don't even create themselves...

Christie with Eric Bloch, Director, Community at MarkLogic Eric Bloch says Search engine technology has been proven to scale
enclosure-voice 1215_ 5/28/12 - We're talking with Eric Bloch, Director of Community at MarkLogic here at the Glue Conference, and it is exciting, so many interesting people and companies here.... Larry asked Eric to give us an overview of what MarkLogic does. They make database software, but it's a unique, non-relational database. It's a database that's built from the ground up on search engine technology and search engine indexing techniques - enough so that sometimes people think of MarkLogic as a search engine instead of a database. Search engine technology has been proven to scale the way Google does, and so often customers come to MarkLogic to solve complicated big data problems. The bulk of their customers today are medium size to large, as well as a number of organizations in the government. They actually have people who use the software who aren't formally their customers, because they give away a copy of their software to developers to do things with. So those are often individuals and sometimes very small companies. Eric tells us they've seen some interesting use cases for big data technologies and big data problems where people have more and more data that they have to manage quickly and make smart decisions. They're working with a top five bank to help them. There's been news about banks and the problem of understanding where they are and what their positions are. It turns out, while you might think managing a trade is a pretty simple thing, but in fact banks trade these complicated things that are hard to model. They get all sorts of financial instruments that get described as ...listen for more...

Chris Coughlin, Revenue North Chris Coughlin, Business Conference Focused on Revenue Growth
enclosure-voice 1211_ 5/21/12 - Meet Chris Coughlin. Chris has a fantastic, interesting background. He is an entrepreneur and while this isn't the subject of our discussion today, Chris is involved in football coaching. His most successful business actually trains 35,000 football coaches each year in conferences across the country. Chris also does a little high school coaching in Colorado Springs. With that as a background, we're talking to Chris about his conference business, Revenue North - they have a conference coming up here in Denver on June 27th. Chris has a high interest in the "Blue Ocean Strategy" taken from the book of the same title (written by W. Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne). What it did for Chris was to give a word picture to the way he's approached business his whole life. The word picture is, a red ocean, full of blood, representing a market with a lot of competitors fighting each other over the same ground. It's everyone competing along the same dynamic. If you can break into a blue ocean (the name of the book and a great word picture), out of the red ocean to the great blue sea, where there is unbounded opportunity to travel and cover as much ground as you want. Now we all have competition, but if you can develop your product or your pricing strategy - ideally both - you can make it so really you don't have competitors. Then, you're in the blue ocean. A great example is Apple / iTunes - they didn't approach the market in the same way as the people operating in the standard red ocean. Larry asked, "How does that strategy translate into value for your customers today?" Chris replied, using the Revenue North Conference here in Denver as an example. Chris was going to take his staff to a marketing conference about 18 months ago. The cost was staggering, a conference fee of $895 per person, plus air fare and hotel. It was going to be a $10 - $15K operation, plus a lot of coordination and a lot of headaches. "So" Chris said, "there are tons of business training options, the w3w3® website is one - it's great." Chris had to find a blue ocean strategy. How could he train business people including his own staff - but do it at a spectacular price, get a much better product than they could get anywhere else and make it local. He created Revenue North. "We've got 42 different sessions a person can hit in a day, seven concurrent sessions. Compared to $895 we can do it for $99."
