Social media can help, but it needs to be managed in a way that supports the brand, customer satisfaction and hence the business bottom line. Our listeners are familiar with “customer relationship management” for businesses this is something like, social media relationship management.

The mobile web and many opportunities to partner
Steven Willmott, CEO, 3scale networks enclosure-voice 1232_ 6/25/12 - Here, again at the Glue Conference in Broomfield, Colorado. This is a very exciting conference and the only one of its kind in the country. There are so many interesting companies and so much to learn about. We're talking with Steve Willmott, CEO of 3scale networks. We asked Steve for an overview of what 3scale networks does. "Right now, many people have websites and that's how they engage with their customers. Now with the mobile web there are many opportunities to partner. For instance, if you have content or a service and you'd like to spread it around to different places not just your own website, 3 scale enables you to put those technical channels in place so that mobile applications and partners can get your data or service directly without having to go via your web site. It's a little bit like having your database and sharing that with partners. You might charge them for that data or allow them to use it but to put your brand on their website for example. Steven explains more. Larry pointed out that a lot of people are concerned with security in the cloud. Steve thinks that is a number one concern. It's very important to keep data secure, especially if it's personal data of your customers - or your own. Cloud has advantages and disadvantages. One of these is obviously, the data in the cloud is a little bit out of your control...listen for more...

Robert Goodman, "The Venture Capital Experience" at TiE Rockies Preparation and research are keys words when raising money
enclosure-voice 1226_ 6/18/12 - At, the voice of the technology community, we link people and organizations to valuable resources and we've cornered a great resource today at the TiE Rockies Entrepreneurial Roundtable with Bob Goodman presenting, The VC Experience. Of course, Bob's background is loaded with experience and is very interesting. Bob says he's got all the scars and bruises from working with venture capital as well as working with government and universities. And he's seen a lot of things, some done correctly and some not so correct. He is fortunate to have a lot of experience with startups, but he started with big Fortune 500 companies and worked his way into the startup world. It's been exciting for him and something he personally has driven towards. During his keynote address at "The Venture Capital Experience - Finding the right VC and working through the due diligence experience" Bob discussed these topic areas...1) Finding the right VC - Rifle shot versus the shotgun approach. 2) What to expect (change in control, stock options, equity, valuation) when receiving funding from a VC. 3) The due diligence process is something that should be taken seriously and expeditiously. He's sold companies, he's been with startup companies that made it, some didn't make it. That's just the nature of the beast. Larry recognized those early in his career and calls them 'learning experiences'. Bob has also dealt with investor types - mostly on the venture capital side in the Northern California environment, the Sand Hill Road gang. Also the Boston gang, and he's worked with foreign investors as well. We asked Bob for the single most important piece of advice for an entrepreneur wanting to raise money. "Preparation and Research! Be sure, if you're raising money, you know why you are raising money. So prepare all the background information. It's important." ...there's much more...listen now...

Change for big and small companies and government
Larry Nelson - w3w3® Media Network, Bob Goodman - The Venture Capital Experience and Frank Traylor, Colorado Entrepreneur - solving lack of innovation in governmentenclosure-voice 1228_ 6/18/12 - The TiE Rockies Entrepreneurial Round Table featuring Bob Goodman presenting the Venture Capital Experience was filled to capacity. We had a moment with one of the attendees, Frank Traylor, an entrepreneur and consultant. Frank wanted to talk about change, he'd just returned from a meeting he attended in New York, the National Association for Corporate Directors. These are directors of large companies and it was titled "Directors in the Digital Age". So Frank went to find out... Directors - Digital Age - Big Companies, how nimble are they being? The focus was strictly on social. Frank thought they'd talk about cloud, mobile, big data. They were all talking about social because it was a risk. They were worried about social media, what might get tweeted, what gets out on blogs - it could hurt their company. For these large companies it is all about risk. There is change going on throughout the economy, things are going so quickly, but what the companies are really worried about, rather than upside, is downside. - What is the risk? We see Kodak who led digital imaging for a century is now bankrupt and Instagram in 18 months went to a billion dollars. So what's the difference in small companies and big companies and why can't the big ones move at all? Frank thinks it's the environment. Everyone is gunning for the big companies, CEO's get egregious pay, that get's in the newspapers. If they do anything wrong it's in the newspapers. Where in the startup world it's all about pivoting, failing fast. If you talk to an entrepreneur who has failed five times, he's experienced. If you talk to a CEO of a large company that's failed once, he's in the doghouse. Frank is a native of Colorado and has been involved in government for a long time. And right now he is on the PPIC which is the Public Private Partnership Innovation Council. They're trying to figure out how to bring innovation to government. Government is in a similar position as big business. If government.. well, .there's much more to listen to...

Feld-Weiser One-on-One: Feld on Work-Life Balance
Brad Feld & Phil Weiser, One-on-One Series, F
           eld on Work/Life Balanceenclosure-voice 1229_ 6/25/12 [Pub. 6-15-2009] - For entrepreneurs, lawyers and other professionals, work-life balance is often a topic that individuals plan on thinking about when they have time. Phil Weiser, Dean of the Law School, University of Colorado - Boulder, engages in a discussion with Brad Feld, Managing Partner, Foundry Group, about a topic that is very elusive for many entrepreneurs. Brad said, "This topic took me 15 years, a failed first marriage, and my current wife (Amy Batchelor) almost calling it quits for me to realize that I had to figure out what 'work-life balance' meant to me." This recognition lead to Brad's commitment to a series of rules, which evolved into a set of habits that include: 1. Spend time away; 2. Life dinner; 3. Segment space; 4. Be present; 5. Meditate. Notably, Brad's view on life-work balance is not that working hard is not important; it's that "balance improves the quality/quantity of work that you can get done and you become more effective at accomplishing stuff." Listen to the entire Feld & Weiser, One-on-One on Work-Life Balance.

Cloud-based log management and analytics for security
Christian Beegden, CoFounder/ CTO, Sumo 
        Logic enclosure-voice 1231_ 6/25/12 - A big question surrounding Cloud services and applications has to do with security. We've asked Christian Beedgen, founder and CTO of Sumo Logic to help us understand. Sumo Logic is a cloud-based log management and analytics service that leverages Big Data to deliver real-time IT insights, headquartered in Mountain View, California, we met Christian at Glue Con 2012. A cloud-based log management service eliminates the operational overhead and complexity of today's on-premise log management solutions. On-premise solutions quickly run into scaleability issues with increasing log volumes, and logs are voluminous. A cloud native solution with its elastic scaleability enables you to process all your log data with zero extra overhead. Sumo Logic was founded in April 2010 by Kumar Saurabh and Christian Beedgen, and received funding from Greylock Partners, Sutter Hill Ventures and angel investor Shlomo Kramer. The round of series B funding announced in January 2012 brings the company’s total venture capital backing to $20.5 million. . Sumo Logic modeled its approach on that of Google, according to Christian Beedgen, the company’s CTO and one of its Cofounders. Sumo Logic uses advanced machine learning algorithms to whittle down mountains of log file data into common groupings...

Colorado companies that are making a big impact
Penny Lewandowski, Edware Lowe Foundationenclosure-voice 1225_ 6/18/12 - The Edward Lowe Foundation and the Companies to Watch Program were started by Edward Lowe in Michigan. His claim to fame was that he invented Kitty Litter. With that he made his fortune and then decided he wanted to put part of that fortune back into an organization that would help make the life of an entrepreneur a little easier than what he had. So that was the genesis on which the foundation was started. Penny Lewandowski tells us "What they do is work with communities and help them understand what we call their second stage growth businesses. We help them understand those businesses and their special needs as they grow their companies, what kind of programs can be put around those companies -[ the foundation has developed a significant number of those programs] - and Companies to Watch is one of those." Larry said, "The second stage companies that you work with have such a tremendous impact on the state of Colorado." Penny replied, "You're right and I've got some numbers for you. We have a database called 'Your-Economy-dot-org'. Existing, expanding companies contribute most to U.S. job creation. In fact, from 1990 to 2008, existing companies generated 71 percent more new jobs than startups." We're talking with Penny Lewandowski, Director, Entrepreneurship & Development, Edward Lowe Foundation, about a very interesting event we have coming up on June 23rd, here in Denver. Pat and I along with lots of celebrities and well known business people will be looking for you at the Colorado Companies to Watch Gala and Award Celebration. There are plenty of good reasons for you to be there and that's why we've cornered Penny, to give us a little background about this program and why it's so important to all of us. Companies to Watch is really centered around recognizing second stage companies. "Those are companies between 6 and 99 employees with $750K to $50 Million in revenue. And these are companies that have both the intention and capacity to grow. We pay a lot of attention to them because they are huge job creators, so they are making a big difference in their communities in a lot of different ways." There's much more and we are looking forward to seeing you there on June 23rd.

David Tolson, Managing Director, Capital Value Advisors They contribute about 86% of the employment in the state
enclosure-voice 1227_ 6/18/12 - We're talking with David Tolson, Managing Director at Capital Value Advisors investment banking firm, and they're involvement with a community project that we think is very special. Larry said, "Give us an overview of Capital Value Advisors." Dave said, "We are an investment bank which is basically a fancy term for our focus on valuations, mergers and acquisitions, both buy side and sell side representation, as well as capital raises. And we really focus on mid market, privately held businesses, anywhere between $5-$50 Million in terms of revenue." We are all really excited about the annual Colorado Companies to Watch event coming up this week, Friday, June 22, 2012. Capital Value Advisors is the presenting sponsor. David tells us they became involved about three years ago, they attended the very first Gala. It was right in the darkest depths of the economic recession. What they saw was amazing and very compelling. And that was a lot of second stage companies with great ideas, that were growing very rapidly, that were adding employees. It was such a stark contrast to what you were hearing in the news at the time, not only regionally and locally but also nationally. We looked at this and said these are the types of companies we need to support not only as a company, but quite frankly as a community need to support. Because these companies while they represent only about 8% of the overall companies in Colorado, they contribute about 36% of the total employment in the state of Colorado. So it's a wonderful place for experienced people to go and develop their business and continue to grow their business. Colorado Companies to Watch focuses on and celebrates second stage companies and really the alums who have been past winners and this year's current winners are part of a community that includes sponsors like Capital Value Advisors, community partners, media relations partners like w3w3®, as well as a host of other government and community resources that are working towards the success and trying to help these second stage companies continue to grow and prosper." Tickets are still available to attend the gala...we'll see you there...
