Paul Washington, Executive Director, Office of   
    Economic Development, Denver City and County These are non-profit organizations that lend money to small businesses
enclosure-voice 1290_ 10/1/12 - We are talking about Jump Start 2012, with Paul Washington, Executive Director in the Office of Economic Development for the City and County of Denver. This is part 2 of this discussion. Paul said, "- In mid October during Denver Startup Week, OED will publish their capital matrix where we have identified all of the investors that have done business or provided capital to Denver based businesses over the last five year period. This matrix has over 100 capital sources, which will be a great tool for the small business community. That's at the venture capital level, angel capital and mezzanine, senior debt financing, it spans the whole gambit of the balance sheet. Additionally Denver OED will identify what they term as their 'big league gazelles'. These are the highest billed companies in Denver that we feel deserve special attention and focus. One of the things we've been learning at the VC roundtable, as well as trips to Silicon Valley, is that it's important for a region to celebrate the successes that have been had for venture backed companies." Paul spoke of a business lending program, but there is one other initiative that they are focused on, to be unveiled in early 2013. This program is called the CDFI Initiative. CDFI = Community Development Financial Institution. These are non-profit organizations that lend money to small businesses, many times when banks cannot. And banks are finding it increasingly harder to lend to the small business community because of the various regulations that have come out since the down turn in 2008 at the federal level...Listen for more details...

Their focus is to help women up their game
Melodie Reagan, Moxie Executive, Moxie Exchange enclosure-voice 1284_ 9/24/12 - We're talking with a serial entrepreneur, one who has had a very successful career in the corporate culture, and who is also very involved in the community. We're talking with Melodie Reagan. Melodie doesn't just lend her presence and expertise - she get's right in the mix, takes her gloves off and makes a difference. You may remember her tenure as president of TiE Rockies, she founded the Women's Business Executive Network and has a passion for promoting women. Why Moxie Exchange? The reason she loves Moxie is because it's structured and its focus is to help women up their game. It's creating a community between women leaders that are out there, so it's very different in that regard. The other thing that Melodie wants to highlight, because it's really important, is that business really needs women leaders more than ever. Today we're talking about the new Moxie Exchange Movement, a professional organization for women. "Fundamentally it is where business and the women you know collide", said Melodie. It is very unique in that it's not just a networking group - it really is a mastermind organization for women. On top of being a mastermind organization, it gives its members a board of advisors, it also provides you with coaching and new learning. So this is a professional organization for women who want to take their game to a new level - they want to learn. There's more...

IT infrastructure solutions for companies of all sizes
enclosure-voice 1286_ 9/24/12 - We are here with a valuable resource, AppliedTrust Co-CEOs/CoFounders, Trent Hein and Ned McClain and winners of the Colorado Companies to Watch 2012. AppliedTrust is an IT consulting firm and we help mostly with IT infrastructure problems for companies of all sizes. They like to say they do the hard IT stuff so you can be awesome! What that really means is they do Internet or network plumbing stuff like performance, security and availability. And Trent points out, AppliedTrust is one of the few organizations that helps other organizations with Open Source technology - so they help them apply, maintain and operate open source technology in their environment. Because of the economy we've asked Trend and Ned what they think are the biggest challenges to entrepreneurs today. Trent said he thought one of the biggest challenges was for an entrepreneur to differentiate their company from the rest of the marketplace. ATE has that challenge and they work with a lot of startups in Boulder, and they have that challenge. There is so much noise out there that it's hard to pick out what are the companies that can really deliver what they say and that there's a need for whatever it is they do. Next question, what are the greatest opportunities. Ned takes this one and said, "In our space it's really exciting, cloud services. Companies can roll out first class infrastructure, first class products without investing millions of dollars in computing infrastructure ...Listen for much more...

Larry Nelson with Brad Feld, Author, Startup Communities and 
    Building an Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Startup Communities and Building an Entrepreneurial Ecosystem
enclosure-voice 1287_ 10/1/12 - What does a Startup Community Ecosystem look like? Ask our prolific author and Colorado based VC Brad Feld. Ok, you don't have to, we did. Now you can listen to him. Then you have to read this book. And after digesting all his great advice, one last step, or maybe the first step... "Do it!  Don't wait for permission. Don't wait to talk to someone. Do go to startup events, meetups, tech talks everything you can find and commit to that for at least six months."
      We began, that is w3w3® Media, 14+ years ago on terrestrial radio and one of our earliest interviews was Brad Feld, a relative newcomer to the Boulder area - already making a name for himself. We've watched him and his wife Amy build their home here, making this community - that's the entrepreneurial, technology (even the arts, the university) and VC communities better and stronger. He's been a champion for the community as a whole and now he's working on the young emerging entrepreneurs, his newest book, "Startup Communities - Building an Entrepreneurial Ecosystem in Your City".
      Brad said he's used a lot of the ideas that he's been involved in and participated in, in Boulder, since he moved here in the mid-90s, to form the framework for the book, which we called the "Boulder Thesis". They worked hard on defining on what any city in the world should do if they want to create a long-term, healthy entrepreneurial ecosystem. The key parts of the Boulder Thesis are these four components. The first is the startup community has to be lead by entrepreneurs. We separate the world into leaders and feeders. They're both important, but they're different. In the context of startup communities, the only people that can be effective leaders are the entrepreneurs. If you have the other people involved in the startup community, the feeders playing the role of leader, it doesn't work. So government can't be the leader, university can't be the leader, investors, venture capitalists, big business, those can't be the leaders. The Second is those entrepreneurs have to take a long-term view. Brad likes to say, "It's generational, at least 20 years. You can't start and build a sustainable startup community in two or three years." We're in a cycle where startups are exciting, a lot of people get involved in startups, and that's fine. But if you really want to build, in your city, a long term startup community, you have to be in it for a long time. The Third part of the Boulder Thesis is, you have to be inclusive of anyone who wants to engage at any level. This is leaders and feeders, individuals who want to get involved - it's anyone new, who moves to town, anyone who wants to be involved can and should be - Then you're way ahead of the game. The last part is you have to have a series of activities and events that have a regular cadence and rhythm to them. Things like TechStars an accelerator for 90 days, you're doing something that engages the entire entrepreneurial stack. The essence of it is this idea that... Well, listen to Brad he will tell you so much more - read his book and you'll learn so much more. Get started now!

Larry Nelson & Paul Washington, Exec. Director, OED City & County of Denver Jump Start 2012 is Denver's economic development strategy
enclosure-voice 1283_ 9/24/12 - We first met at a very powerful meeting here in Denver, Colorado. We'll talk about that, and Jump Start 2012, with Paul Washington, Executive Director in the Office of Economic Development for the City and County of Denver. As an overview, Jump Start 2012 is the City of Denver's economic development strategy for this year. Based on seven pillars of economic development 1. Business Retention, 2. Small Business Advocacy, 3. Business Recruitment, 4. Sustainable Neighborhood Development, 5. Business Lending, 6. Workforce Development and 7. Key Strategic Projects. Now, in each one of these pillars, there are a number of key initiatives and numerous milestones that need to be achieved in order to meet the strategic initiative. As part of the Small Business Advocacy focus, Paul tells us, they want to make sure they are doing everything to bring attention to the small business community in Denver. The reason this is important is because small businesses represent a huge percentage of Denver's workforce and employment base. As an economic development agency OED wants to make sure they do everything they can to support small business and bring positive attention to our entrepreneurs and then that will lead to more attraction to capital which will result in more employment opportunities, insuring that economic development will remain strong in Denver. One of these initiatives is ...Listen for more…

John Kelley, Chairman & CEO, CereScan Building a successful company by using the latest software
enclosure-voice 1285_ 9/24/12 - Today Larry is interviewing John Kelley, Chairman and CEO, of CereScan. This exciting company is working on ideas that will help tons of people in ways never dreamt of before. Psychiatry and Neurology have been struggling for years with the dilemma of how to accurately diagnose patients with chronic brain disorders. This is particularly challenging when there are multiple symptoms and potentially more than one causation in the patient's brain. CereScan is an exciting new business here in Denver that's in the business of helping patients and doctors sort out the problems that patients might be experiencing with brain disorders. We combine imaging and diagnostics and giving a treating doctor the best possible information in the world, to help their patients. CereScan is just now beginning to gain acceptance with medical professionals dealing with chronic and potentially debilitating disease. Today, CereScan is shedding new light on neurological conditions such as Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's Disease, and mild Traumatic Brain Injury. Larry asked, why would someone need a brain scan and diagnostic evaluation at CereScan? John said, "The brain is a very complicated organ and as we've seen with the NFL or the military, it's really hard to start figuring out what's really wrong in the brain. Whether it's children who experience a problem at birth or people in car accidents or people who are experiencing things like ADD and Bipolar ...Listen for much more...
