Bring along the next generation of entrepreneurial talent
Phil Weiser, Dean, CU Law School, Founder/Silicon Flatiron Center - Startup Coloradoenclosure-voice 1264_ 8/20/12 - Phil Weiser is the Dean of the University of Colorado Law School, Thompson Professor of Law, and Executive Director and Founder of the Silicon Flatirons Center for Law, Technology, and Entrepreneurship at the University of Colorado. When Phil returned from his time in DC and the White House, one of the assignments he came back with was to help head up the state chapter of StartUp America. So Brad Feld, Jan Horsfall and Phil took on the mission of being the co-chairs and they've been ramping up - you can find out all about it at They have a number of initiatives, Phil tells us, "First and foremost challenge is to amp up, amplify and further connect in Denver, Boulder, Colorado Springs and Fort Collins. So we've been working on that and a few other initiatives..." It's all gotten off to a great start and they'll be celebrating Year One and look to Year Two on October 15th. An event celebrating Brad Feld's book, 'Startup Communities' which is all about this project Brad Bernthal, Clinical Law Professor teaches the Entrepreneurial Law Clinic and the Samuelson-Glushko Technology Law & Policy Clinic, and serves as the Director of the Silicon Flatirons Center’s Entrepreneurship Initiative at CU-Boulder. He also teaches doctrinal courses in the areas of venture capital, telecom policy and spectrum management.helping to support start ups. Brad Bernthal tells us about the Startup Summer Program. It's one of Startup Colorado's missions which is to bring along the next generation of entrepreneurial talent in this state. The program embedded interns in 15 startups this summer. The startups agreed that they'd give C-level management face-time with the interns on a regular basis. The Interns attended regular classes - where the best and brightest out of the Boulder community provided classes on entrepreneurship. Lastly, each of the interns actually developed their own business plans and at the end of the summer pitched the businesses they're trying to build. It was transformative, the kind of thing that changes the trajectory of their careers and from Colorado's perspective a big win. Larry asked for clarification of what is meant by the ecosystem?

Sam Bailey, Program Director, Colorado Companies to Watch This program is a perfect example of public/private partnership
enclosure-voice 1259_ 8/13/12 - We're talking to Sam Bailey the Relationship Manager for the Governor's Office of Economic Development and International Trade. That means he primarily works in business retention and expansion, helping existing businesses grow and expand their businesses. Sam is also the new program director for Colorado Companies to Watch, which is now four years into the program with 200 companies highlighted and close to, if not over a thousand finalists. Sam said, "We have really seen a lot of companies and communities come out and support these businesses - highlight them, recognize them - so the program has grown to quite a prestigious honor. This year alone we had a wonderful geographical diversity across the state of Colorado. We had companies from rural and urban communities - communities that we haven't seen on stage before. So this has been a banner year for COCTW. We're looking to continue that through outreach to our community partners across the state. It's important to note this is not a program just for the Front Range. It's for the entire state; we have companies from Durango, Carbondale, Craig, and Holly." Listen for more...

The lending side is one, but it's also the capital side
Rick Fort, Founder, EMS, a Xerox Companyenclosure-voice 1261_ 8/13/12 - We are talking with Rick Fort, the founder and Dorothy Donnelly, National Marketing Director, Hein & Associatesformer Chairman of Educational Sales Management (ESM), a provider of student lifecycle solutions to help schools enroll, graduate and place more students. Rick sold the company a year ago to Xerox. Here too is Dorothy Donnelly, National Marketing Director for Hein & Associates, a public accounting firm based here in Denver, and Dorothy is also a board member of ACG Denver. Dorothy pointed out that Rick Fort enrolled, by founding ESM, graduated by selling ESM to Xerox and now he is succeeding by investing into the community - a true entrepreneur who now heads up The Fort Knocks Company. Larry asked, "What are some of the biggest challenges for mid-sized companies today?" Rick said, "For mid-sized companies down to small companies as well, it is in part, finding the right people to help grow innovation, not getting stuck in where-you-are, constantly developing new ideas and bringing new change." Dorothy said, "What I’m hearing from folks is that it is still very difficult to get lending even though it's loosening up a bit. That being the commercial banks are at the will of the lenders and their organizations and not so much able to support business on their own without that stamp of approval." Rick agreed with that and added, "The lending side is one, but it's also the capital side. Now venture capital and the equity groups are starting to loosen up their pockets more and more, making good investments in companies. But there's a leverage that they have too, so it's not necessarily all it's made out to be." They then discussed the possibilities, potential advantages and strengths coming up this next year...Listen for more...

Fire disaster financial relief for businesses
Kelly Manning, 
    State Director, Colorado SBDC Network enclosure-voice 1262_ 8/20/12 - The SBDC Network, that's Small Business Development Center Network has 14 hubs throughout Colorado, they conduct regular training events and services to help small businesses grow and prosper. With the recent disastrous effects of the fires in our state this season, Kelly Manning, State Director for SBDC Network said, "It's really a sad thing. With all the media attention about the fires in Colorado. You know a lot of businesses were not affected physically by those fires but it did effect them financially. The media puts on all the pictures and it looks like the entire state is on fire. The reality of it was, unfortunately a lot of homes were destroyed, but not a lot of businesses. But people stopped coming to Colorado. We had cancellations from Aspen to Vail, wanting to know how close the fires were to them - canceling hotel reservations, restaurants were affected. So, truly a lot of businesses were affected by these fires. With that the SBDC has been stepping up from day one. Fortunately Colorado was blessed with a $100,000 grant from our federal partners, SBA, to provide consulting for businesses that were affected. With that we will bringing on consultants that will help with loan packaging for the disaster loans and also some people need lines of credit to be able to get over a hump to get them back on track where they were. The Colorado SBDC Network is here to help those businesses pick up the pieces and clear the way through the ashes of their disasters. SBDC Network is here for the long haul to help those businesses get back up on their feet and be more successful than they were before." ... LISTEN for more!

Networking Rules of Engagement, the do's and don'ts
Howard Potter, Host, 7th Annual Investment & Finance Cross Networking Event September 27, 2012enclosure-voice 1263_ 8/20/12 - Howard Potter, recovering attorney and CPA is here to talk about his favorite subject, networking. We're discussing his Networking Rules of Engagement, and then we'll talk about the 7th Annual Investment & Finance Cross-Networking Event on September 27th, 2012, hosted by Mr. Potter and sponsored by ACG Denver, and many others. Last year over 400 people attended this event and it has been sold out each of the last four years. The format is appreciated by all - there are no speakers, just a lot of time to network and make or renew your contacts. We asked him to talk about his networking best practices. Networking should be about 'How can I help you?' You walk into a meeting, the first thing you want to think is, 'What can I do to help these people in the room?' First, try to arrive a minimum of 15 minutes early. Those first minutes are the most important. You can get the ground work going, canvass the room, get a feeling for what's going on. I would also suggest, try to leave 15 minutes late, at the end of the networking time is some of the most valuable time that you spend. After the networking session is over you have to take the cards you've collected, make notes on the cards to remind yourself later of who you met. Talking about business cards - Never, Never, Never be without your business card. Howard goes so far to say if you are fishing or hunting - have a business card with you. The business card should be a card on which you can write and take notes so the people who meet you and you meet - you can make notes about who these people are and what their background is. Listen for more and be ready to take notes...

Dr. Louise Gunderson, CEO/President, Gamma Two Robotics In ten years we will have robots capable of helping us in our homes
enclosure-voice 1265_ 8/20/12 - Can you believe, in ten years we will have robots capable of helping us in our homes. This is amazing and Dr. Louise F. Gunderson, President and CEO of Gamma Two Robotics is here to tell us about the current state of robotics. Louise started out by giving us an overview of Gamma Two, a small robotics company formed by 'two escaped academics' Louise and James Gunderson. “We are building a security robot that will be launched next month that will do a security patrol without a human operating it. Given an area to patrol and directions from you, and carrying a camera, the robot goes around obstacles by itself. If there is a blocked route, it will tell you its route is blocked and it will go on and continue its business. The interesting and hard part was building something that was as smart as a living system. There are lots of robots out there that are teleoperated - like the remote controlled car, which has been extended to a very cool robot that are being used for bomb disposal by the military. There are lots of cool reactive systems like the Rumba, but you can't really tell it where to go. It just goes where it's gonna go. Gamma Two Robotics has combined the reactive system with a higher level brain based on an animal model so that it knows where it is and it goes where you tell it to go.” Louise also talked about military robots. Larry asked, "Is there a time when we'll actually have robots helping us out around the house?" Louise replied, "Within the next decade we will have that. Everything that we needed to build a security robot is also need to make a robot that is safe around humans and trustworthy in the house. There are a lot of additional functionalities that have to be built in." Louise feels it is very realistic in the next ten years and she really hopes it's one with her label on it. ...Listen for more...

Monte Robertson, Cloud Computing Consulting The cloud, apps, security and legacy in business today
enclosure-voice 1258_ 8/13/12 - We've got questions, - 1. Everyone is talking about the cloud now days, and there is so much out there – Why all the buzz? What is the cloud? - 2. Are there security concerns around the cloud? - 3. What recommendations do you have for companies looking to the cloud?
      Today we're going to be talking about a 'cloudy issue' that's really big in the Internet and Web world. If you were to ask ten business people to define Cloud, you'll get ten definitions. We're with Monte Robertson, President of Cloud Computing Consulting, with over 10 years of providing leading edge security solutions. So we asked the expert for a definition. Monte said, "The cloud is just a computing platform and essentially it's been around for a long time because it's really just another word for the Internet. We used to use the symbol of a cloud to describe the Internet when we showed, in technical drawings, how to connect one office or one computer through the Internet to another. The Cloud is basically the Internet. There are a lot of different products and services offered as cloud services or Internet based services, but they've been doing it a long time. For example if you had an old Yahoo or Hot Mail Internet mail account, that's Internet based or Cloud based email. It's an old concept that's been made shinny and new." Security issues? That's a big barrel. There are public clouds, private clouds and hybrid clouds which will probably become the main portion of the architecture. But, it goes back to what we've been telling people all along about computer security. You have to identify what's important to you - Know where it is - Who has access to it. You have to understand what it is you're trying to protect and then decide how to deploy that. Public Cloud is just that, it's public, probably not very secure. There are a lot of questions you have to ask the provider.... LISTEN for more!

Richard Liner, Founder/Executive Director, KidsTek The mission is to assist the highest needs schools of Colorado
enclosure-voice 1260_ 8/13/12 - Founded back in August of 2000, KidsTek and Richard Liner, the founder and Executive Director are beginning their 13th year. Rich is full time and he says, "It's just been a terrific ride for the whole time. The KidsTek mission is to assist the highest needs schools of Colorado and students in the K-12 space, in learning technology skills." So they have, at the schools, enrichment programs for the middle and elementary age kids. And, they have in school certification tracts for the high schools. Currently they are serving about 900 students in 18 programs - and they're now growing to as many as 23 programs in this new school year. Over the years KidsTek has grown exponentially since they first started as an off-shoot of the Colorado Technology Association [they are now back and tightly woven in with CTA again, which is just fantastic]. But, KidsTek has been able to move from the after school drop-in model, where they just helped kids on an ad hoc basis, to working exclusively with these schools where they can have these kids from elementary to middle and then into high school. In the last couple of years they've added the certification tracts in high school where the kids learn A+ certification and Cisco Network certification. KidsTek is actually a Cisco Academy training facility - one of the few non-profits. Get involved and listen for more...
